We’d have to say that this is the best kept secret on the island. Peaceful, beautiful, and convenient location. We loved waking up, going downstairs and opening up the villa to beautiful scenery, a great breeze, lush tropical landscaping, the sound of the waterfall into the pool and great coffee. We didn’t make many plans so every day was an adventure for us. We’ve stayed in the resorts on the island and one of the many things we loved about Villa Zatarra was the privacy. Very clean, the kitchen and barbeque has everything you could want or need, you could even ask the owner’s to have fish brought in or go out and catch it yourself to cook there. Mary, the housekeeper always snuck in to clean up behind us, provide ample fresh towels, and even fresh flowers on the pool deck. There is so much to do in the immediate area and we didn’t even get it all done. We visited the beach at Cas en Bas as well as the little beach bar at the Cotton Bay resort. While we didn’t get to kite surf because of time, we certainly got to watch some. We’ll definitely do it next time. We also spent time at Pigeon Island both on the park side and with the locals. From Pigeon Island, we also walked into the Sandals Resort which was cool until you consider there’s a ton of people there. We spent several evenings at Cap Maison to watch the sunset, after watching it come up in the bedroom of the Villa. Rodney Bay Marina area is so cool. We did lunches, shopping, a deep sea fishing tour and a half day sail out of the marina. There’s a cool sunglass shop called Blink that carries all the best brands, we just couldn’t resist. We spent a good bit of time in the Rodney Bay area from restaurants to shopping. We also spent some time at the beach at the Landings resort and were fortunate enough to catch Rob Zi playing one early evening. Highly recommend you catch his show somewhere if you can. If available, get the car rental option as it was really convenient to run down to Jacques on the water for lunch. The owner’s, Rob and Veron, also provide a very reliable pick up service and guide for the island if you need a tour, have questions, want a tour of the island, or even just a quick ride anywhere. The owner’s were so very genuine, hospitable, and always offering any level of service or help you may need. We’ve been all over the Caribbean and the Villa Zatarra ranks as one of our top vacation spots. Just as the song says, There’s Nothing Like This. We'll do it again.
