Amazing Location, Wonderful House
Seven adults from Vermont escaped to Reef Bay for a week of late-January fun in the sun. The location was perfect for a get-away-from-it-all vacation. The house offered beach-walkers (and runners) direct access to a couple miles of secluded and varied beach (some sandy, some rocky). It wasn't unusual to walk for an hour without passing another person. The hikers in the crowd could access a host of trails, including L'Esperance and Lameshur Bay trails, as well as the Reef Bay trail to the Petroglyphs, by walking less than a half-mile down the beach. Folks who wanted to hang by the pool and read or snooze could enjoy amazing views. The steep roads by the house offered stunning views for road-walkers/runners-- we only saw a handful of cars on the dead-end roads all week. The body-surfers/boogie-boarders among us enjoyed hours of riding the waves on the beach right by the house. (For swimmers who preferred calm waters, a stretch of sandy beach less than a half-mile down-beach from the house was ideal. One day we saw a snorkeling/scuba tour group at that beach, prompting us to walk back the next day with our own equipment. We didn't see anything worth writing home about.) The place offered so much that some of us barely explored the island-- there was plenty to do and see right from the house. For those who wanted to explore more, Cruz Bay was only 15 minutes away, and the Center Line Road offered a mountainous drive into the middle of the island.
The house itself was clean, very tasteful, comfortable, and well-equipped. We enjoyed cooking at home, and had all the dishes, pots, pans, etc. that we needed to make nice meals. The audio-visual equipment allowed us to play music from our iPod or stream satellite radio, and we could stream Netflix or watch DVDs or cable. And the washer and dryer allowed us to pack lightly. The owner was exceptionally attentive. When we had problems with a piece of electronics, he was on the phone to us immediately helping us trouble-shoot. (We got it working.)
We would definitely come back here!
