Perfect Paradise Vacation for large group!
Submitted: February 7, 2013
Stayed: January 2013
We were a group of 14 (10 adults and 4 children, ages 12, 8, 7 & 3 years old). Before we even left I had communicated with Fraces many times via email and she was very prompt, informative and pleasant to deal with. Just from dealing with Frances I knew our vacation was going to go very smoothly. We stayed at the villa for a week from Jan 17-24 2013. We were met at our rental car agency (Discount Rental) by a manager from the house. She was absolutely wonderful! She drove ahead of us and led us right to the villa. She even gave us walkie talkies so that we could communicate with her as we drove and she pointed things out on the way. Once we arrived at the villa we were very impressed! The manager gave us the grand tour and went over all kinds of information, including a map of the island. The villa was much bigger than expected. There are actually 3 seperate houses. The pool area is fabulous! It is right outside the main kitchen and living area. There are balconies, wrap around decks and outdoor seating everywhere!!! There are 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. We had more room than we needed, but it was great for everyone to have their own space and lots of quiet areas to put the kids to bed. You could easily just stay at the house and have a great time! The houses are stocked with tons of supplies. There is even a game closet with lots of board games and cards. The villa had 2 huge coolers which we used every day to pack snacks and beverages to take to the beach. There are even noodles for the pool (which we took to the beach too). There are TV's in every bedroom and several more in family rooms. There are AC units in all the bedrooms (and other places I think), but I didn't even pay attention because we never turned it on. We left our windows and patio doors open and wind off the ocean was just perfect for sleeping. The island itself is beautiful!!! The beaches are left natural, with no resorts on them, just rolling green hills and palm trees. You feel like you are lost in paradise. You must drive on the left side of the road and there are a lot of hills and curves, but we found the roads to be very manageable. Our favorite spot was Magen's Bay, which is only a few minutes by car from the house. It is the perfect beach. They also have water sport rentals and great food. Coki Beach is a must also. A day trip to St. John is a must. You can even take your rental car over there on the car barge. Overall we highly recommend it!!!!!
