2BR/2BA 'Conch'ed Out' Villa is a recently renovated oceanfront cottage in Old Man Bay on the north coast. This Caribbean-style 2BR very private villa offers excellent snorkeling directly behind the oceanfront pool, and a sandy private backyard that leads to the pebbly beach. Pool shoes/fins are required for swimming or snorkeling anywhere there is a marine environment.
Oceanfront doors to the sea connect to the full-width screened-in porch, adjacent to both the beach and the pool. Very deep lot (450') and heavily landscaped from the neighboring homes. (1) Queen Suite; (1) Twin (2 beds) Bedroom Suite. Oceanfront freshwater pool with lounge chairs and palm trees. Charcoal grill near pool. Many shade and coconut trees on the property.
Screened porches on both the front and rear of Conch'ed Out permit great cross-ventilation in winter when the A/C is not necessary. Fall asleep to the waves below. A/C is for the bedrooms and baths only; you can leave the rest of the house open to both the front and rear screen porches, with ceiling fans as well.
Accommodates up to 4 people currently (4 adults max.); Excellent small family or 2-couple villa. Room for (2) roll-away beds. Modern kitchen and large dining area, A/C in the bedrooms only, WiFi Internet access included. TV and stereo in the living area with plenty of seating. Gated and fenced property with plenty of off-street parking.
The villa was very nice for the money. The bed was confortable but the wicker furniture, which was fine for the rest of the house, was not so comfortable in the living/TV room. I was disappointed that the back yard and pool area which appears very private on the villa pictures and Google earth really isn't since another house (appears new) is right next to the pool without sufficient vegetation or fence to provide privacy. Lukily for us noone appeared to be staying at that house during our stay.
Tghe managementg company was a mixed bag: the pre-trip service and instructions was great. Once we got on the island service was not very good. The house itself had no instructions upon arrival so we had to dig for the wireless password. The big frustration came when I had a question on Friday at 2:30p and the "villa manager" who was my only direct contact could not be reached at the only phone number they gave me (disconnected or something). After finding the main office number online and leaving several messages I finally reached someone who couldn't answer my question, gave me another number and even suggested I drive to my villa manager's office to track her down. I called the other number, left her a message and never heard from anyone the rest of my stay. We had a great, relaxing time despite some of these issues.
