One Fantastic Place – Forget the cost this is value for money, particularly if the cost is shared, as in our case, between 2 couples!
The property is just a few minutes from St George by car ( jeep desirable as the access road is largely unmade) or taxi, but off the main road in a quiet and secluded spot away from the hustle and bustle of the capital. The view overlooking the bay, the villa’s gardens and Hog Island is idyllic.
However it is the accommodation itself that has the real wow factor. No expense has been spared or corners cut in providing everything you could want from a holiday retreat. A lot of thought has gone in to the decoration, paintings, design and furnishings. The kitchen has everything a cook could desire (so my wife tells me) and you will not run out of crockery and utensils if you do not use the dishwasher regularly. There is an ice machine to cool those ‘sundowners’.
All 3 bedrooms are superb and the lounge a place to chill with a vast range of books, TV, wi-fi and a state of the art sound system with i-pod dock that provides music, if desired, to the pool area. The pc was away for repair when we were there, but no matter at all! Outside there are 3 different areas to relax, the infinity pool with its sun bathing areas, there is an outside covered dining area with hammock, and a gazebo in the back garden with table and chairs.
Positioned to catch the sun most of the day, and the sunset, the pool itself is the place you will spend most of your day, and evenings, if you are here to just chill! It has a timed control infinity fall and submerged lighting and an electronic canopy. Ther is even an in-pool bar and barstools – plentiful supply of plastic wineglasses and tumblers. If you do need the sun from sunrise the east facing porch has a 2 seater swing chair.
All this is excellently looked after by the housekeeper, who will cook if you wish, and the gardener.
At your disposal is a motor boat, kayaks and a sailing dinghy to explore the safe waters of the bay from the villas own jetty.
There are plenty of things to do on the island, but you will have to make a real effort to leave the villa, such are its attractions!
