Absolutely lovely house!

A group of us stayed at L'Alize for 10 days. The house is absolutely fantastic, and the pictures are completely accurate. The location is perfect - very close to West Bay Beach but an easy escape from the crowds when necessary. The house is gorgeous and well-appointed and maintained; it had everything we needed to feel at home, including comfortable beds, spacious and well-equipped kitchens and bathrooms, plenty of towels, and A/C in the bedrooms (we didn't even need the A/C with the trade winds coming through - the house is situated perfectly to take advantage of them!). The owner and Kelly (manager) were wonderful - very helpful, very responsive, and very professional. I've rented quite a few properties via VRBO, and I've always had good experiences, but this experience was the best yet in terms of the quality of the property, its location, and the professionalism and helpfulness of the management. Please don't change a thing!
Tips: Instead of Gumbalimba for monkeys, check out Bodden's Monkey Tour between West End and Sandy Bay (I believe the sign says "Maya Canopy Tours.") It's way less expensive (about $8), and you can actually play with the monkeys. They also have two kinkajous. Also, "Cindy's" (if I recall correctly) in West End has an amazing chicken burrito, and Rotisserie Chicken in West End is also a must. JavaVine in West Bay Mall has very good coffee and pastries, and the Hungry Munkey makes great sandwiches. We found snorkeling to the reef in West Bay easiest in front of Infinity Bay - there seems to be a "channel" of sand there that will take you between the sections of the reef to get out to the deeper parts (instead of winding your way between coral outcroppings just off Tabayana near Black Rock). On a calm day, snorkeling in front of the house is pretty cool, too!
We all highly recommend this house. We definitely plan to return!
