My Favorite Vacation Yet
We are a husnabd/wife (37), kids (1 and 3) and grandmother (62). Best vacation we EVER had! 9& we take alot of vacations). Here some info I wish I had.
Driveway Situation: The road leading up to the driveway is very steep and adventurous (including a 120 degree turn). By the 2nd time up & down it, we felt very comfortable with it. We had no trouble getting to the top of it. It took a few tries the 1st time to back down. However, the second day it was easier. If you consider yourself a fairly good driver, then do not hesitate to book this home based on the review comments about the road and driveway.
Layout of House: The house has 2 floors. One pleasant surprise for us was the “suite” feeling the master bedroom has on the second floor. It includes a private balcony, sitting area, very comfortable king bed, and private bathroom. I thought the entire house felt beach like, romantic, and yet kid friendly in one.
Safety: The decks are fully enclosed to the house and contain no stairs off of them. We allowed our 1 and 3 year old to play outside on the balconies without any fear that they would fall off or get out of our control.
Amenities: After renting many homes/villas, this house was the first that provided soap, shampoo, paper towels, and toilet paper. The beach chairs, towels, linens, coolers, and snorkeling gear were in excellent condition.
With Children: Pack-n-play is in excellent condition-Graco. 1st floor bathroom has a tub. Deck was wooden with nails-no concerns/rails-to mainland standards and well constructed. Wish we had rented a high chair. A lot of on hand amenities are in the house including cleaning supplies, light bulbs, bug spray, toiletries, etc. A lot of these items were placed in lower cabinets in kitchen and baths. We moved a few & then watched them closely. I recommend bringing twist ties that you can temporarily child-proof for your own needs. Art work/décor up high enough that we did not need to worry about proofing the house.
This trip was the best vacation we have ever been on-including a few trips to Hawaii, many EU trips, Grand Cayman, Turk& Caicos, Puerta Plata, Puerta Vallarta, Cancun, and Akumal. We hope that Paul & Fran will welcome us back in the future.
