My family of four rented Saltbox for our Spring Break in 2013. The home was perfect for us. It is charming and comfortable with tons of character and rustic touches. It is in town where there is good bit of local activity. There is liquor store next door owned by the family that used to own this home and the owner was extremely nice. It came in handy for bottles of water and other supplies when needed. The home is nicely decorated with wifi and cable tv, although we did not turn the tv's on one time during our trip (that should tell you all you need to know). My kids are 10 and 7 and each had his own room. They loved the outdoor shower as well.
We were traveling with friends who stayed at one of the nicest resorts on the island. Our bedrooms and furnishings were every bit as nice as those in their resort room. And we had much more room and privacy. No restaurant or bar though!
A few things to know - there is a little rust and wear here and there but that is from the salt air and environment. It is windows-and-doors open living and it is hard to keep shower curtains rods, iron beds and fixtures from getting a little tarnish. There are roosters everywhere and they start up at about 4 every morning. We did not sleep much that first night but laughed about it later. There is some road noise too-mostly golf carts. It is not really noticeable downstairs but upstairs can get a little noisy early in the morning if the shutters are left wide open. Turn the fans on high or shut it up and turn on the air conditioning. We did and slept great after that first night - it helped to have such a comfortable bed too.
We had housecleaning service during our stay and the caretaker checked on us from time to time as well. All in all it was a wonderful stay-just right for us. We would definitely go again and stay in SaltBox. It is a special home for a special place.
