The description and photos can not do justice to the beautiful relaxing home provided by owners. As soon as you walk into this gorgeous villa you feel welcomed and right at home. Incredibly well stocked kitchen and house. Just about everything you can think of is provided from towels, to beach chairs and coolers. Kitchen is amazingly stocked as well. We particularly enjoyed the sound systems provided that were all ipod friendly, 1 in living room and 1 in each bedroom. TV's looked great although we didn't have the urge to turn them on at all, too much else to do from board games to star gazing.
We found the property and house to be very clean.
The caretaker, all around host Dave D. provided a fantastic welcome at the dock after a long day of travel and made the last leg of our journey seamless. THANKS DAVE!
You are within a 10 to 30 minute drive to some fantastic beaches. We found Francis Bay to be our favorite, especially for lounging, sunning and jumping in the water for a cool down. Very good snorkeling at Maho Bay without having to venture too far out. In fact, rays and tarpons were readily visible from standing on the shore. Trunk Bay, although beautiful is really not necessary. You can find everything you could desire at other beaches with alot less people. Don't miss Salt Pond Beach and Little Lameshur, worth the bouncy drive to the end of the road.
Restaurants selection within a ten minute drive from house is ample and varied.
Our favs were Miss Lucies, [don't miss the Sun. jazz brunch] probably our best dinner was at this welcoming establishment with unbelievable views. Other good choices for a nice dinner are Aqua Bistro and Ship Wreck. For burgers and drinks and a taste of "local flavor stop at Skinny Legs. Food was decent as were the drinks. Not "fine dining" but excellent for what they do. For a half or full day sail out of Coral Bay stop by Crabbys Shack and schedule a sail with Rick and Robin on their beautiful 40 foot boat "Long Distance".
We would definitely recommend this beautiful property to others. The only caveat I can even think of is that you have to get used to a long, bumpy, twisty road up to the house but for us it was no problem. Its probably 6 or 8 minutes each way until you get to the main road.
We found the communication between us and the owners/agents to be extremely professional and thorough.
If you can manage to stay here you will NOT be disappointed.
A GREAT VACATION!!!
Owner's Response: Dear Susan,
Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay at our villa Moonswept. Of course it's no surprise to hear about what a great experience you had. We are just as amazed as you are when we find ourselves sitting in the hot tub looking up at the dazzling array of stars and the moon over the sea. It's truly difficult for us to describe the magic of being at Moonswept. That's why we really appreciate that you've described your own feelings about it for others to enjoy here on HomeAway. We love sharing our special place with all of the travellers who've passed through and we are very grateful for the good fortune to be able to do so.
We hope to see you again soon!
Till then, Clear Skies,
Garry and Terre
