Restful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I got praises from my family for choosing this villa! The villa information was accurate but the description of the scenery was understated. Wow! It was awesome having breakfast together by the gazebo with a view of Mary's Creek and BVI, feeding the banana quits and hummingbirds,watching pelicans flying by (occasionally shooing the pesky thrasher? and chicken visiting). During sunset, the beautiful streaks of colors can be seen on the other side of the deck.
The location was ideal. Francis Bay was a few steps away and we snorkeled all the way to Maho Bay,where we saw turtles feeding, sting rays and colorful fish. Both Coral and Cruz Bay were in reasonable driving distance.Jeep Rental is a must if staying in this location.
For cat lovers like us, there were two sweet cats Ms. Moon and Homer who stayed by the deck and kept us company (and critters away). The kitchen was generally well-stocked and we prepared most of our meals.Take a deep breath in the grocery store and try not get a heart attack when you see the prices which are generally 2-3 times more expensive compared to the mainland.
Terry the manager was nice and easy to deal with.
If there was a suggestion for improvement, it would be to secure the screens more because small bugs able to get in at night, harmless though.
We liked Aqua Bistro, Full Moon Coffee/Gift Shop, Organic Salad/Vegetables from Josephine's Farm, hiking Reef Bay Trail, best snorkeling was at Brown Bay on the left side.
We would highly recommend this villa for persons wishing a quiet vacation close to nature and (as the fitting villa name)...seeking Serenity.
