Words truly do not do justice in attempting to describe the beauty and tranquility of Villa Mirabelle. We were fortunate enough to stay for a week in early March, traveling with 8 adults and three small children, all under 3 years of age. Upon walking through the front door, we were instantly greeted by a gentle breeze, warm, inviting sunshine, a crystal clear pool, and lush gardens, surrounded by the most breathtaking view of the ocean we had ever experienced. Villa Mirabelle quickly felt like home (with a much better view), as it was more than well-equipped, including a top-notch kitchen, comfortable furnishings, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, and an excellent audio system that was enjoyed throughout the house and down by the beach as well. In searching for a Villa, we were looking for a home with a private pool, beachfront, and most importantly, a place that was accommodating for our young children. Villa Mirabelle met all of these demands and more! The fruit basket and fresh flowers upon our arrival, the mid-week cleaning by friendly and courteous staff, and the excellent restaurant within walking distance (Las Brisas) were simply further evidence of what an amazing place Villa Mirabelle was. We definitely over-packed, as the island has a casual feel and the laundry room’s two washers and two dryers were tremendously helpful in ensuring we returned home with clean clothes. We also greatly appreciated the outdoor seating, as the pergola on the beach provided ample shade when desired, and the lounge chairs were perfect when relaxing by the pool. We also made daily use of the hammocks, which became a favorite napping place. Our children could not get enough of the pool or the beach, running up and down the board walk and playing with the abundant pool and beach toys available. There was even a pack and play for our infant daughter, as well as a booster seat, and plenty of plastic dishes that helped make traveling with small children both enjoyable and easy. Perhaps one of the biggest draws to Villa Mirabelle was that it was situated on what the locals refer to as “Children’s Beach!" It was calm and shallow enough that our 14 month old would run straight out, with no fear of being knocked over by waves. Honestly, our only regret was that we didn’t spend more time at the Villa itself. When we return next year, excursions will be limited, as our only wish is to soak up the sun, sand, and memories with our family in this beautiful home!
