Most peaceful and relaxing vacation ever at age 54.
Submitted: April 5, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
I need to let you know that our group consisted of 6 people. Myself female age 54. Males ages 35, 29 and 25 females age 24 & 27. One being my son and 2 were daughters. We had a great time and shared much time together. We spent most of our time at the house outside enjoying the pool, snorkeling in the sea, kayaking, relaxing in the hammock,reading books, and talking in the comfortable outdoor furniture on the very large wrap around deck. Pictures don't even come close to what it really looks like!
Upon our arrival we were greeted by Kevin and Claire who make you feel so welcome and are a wealth of information. They helped us get our rental vehicle. I might suggest that if you are use to driving an automatic you might want to request that when you make your rental reservation. Many of the rental vechicles are manual. After getting our rental van they took us to the grocery store and then we followed them to our rental home.
The kitchen area is very accomodataing for large groups. Most of our meals were cooked at the house and we did buy fish and lobster from one of the local fishermen who will come to the house and ask if you want to buy any. Restaurants that either some or all of us went to were Frenchy's, Cals Cantina, Pineapple Grill and Gio Seafood. I would recommed them all. One of the highlights on our stay was having Clair arrange for a local woman and her daughter come to the house and make our meal,serve the meal, and do the dishes. It was DELICIOUS ! We also learned from them how a cocunt is cut, husked, and opened.
Two of the people in our group scuba dived and they were so impressed. Saw things that they had not seen before. I snorkeled 3 of the days walking straight out from the house.( I do suggest to wear water shoes for walking out) I even saw the reef wall which I had not experienced before. Take advantage of the days when the water is calm. We had a few days where the waves were a little to big for walking through the coral to snorkel.
We did do a fishing tour one day. 5:30 am - 2:30 we left from a dock about 300 yards from the house. We should have taken a few more light weight pieces of clothing that covered our arms and legs. There was no tarp or covering on the boat to stay out of the sun. We did use 50 proof sunscreen and we still all got sunburned. Besides the fishing we saw beautiful beaches and mainland from the waterside.
I suggest to take no cell phones and no computers. ENJOY!
