Memories are made of this....
Our first time to the Bahamas and to La Mouette. Ashamed to say we were feeling anxious at having paid our money up front and wondering if the villa could really be as amazing as the pictures. I needn't have worried! La Mouette is beautiful. I almost didn't want to leave a review as I want to keep ity a secret! We went to Atlantis for a few days (great but manic) and then moved on to the villa for a week to "chill out". The party consisted of my parents (in their 70's) and my 3 children. We loved every moment. Memories were made. The children loved the freedom and the seclusion of the beach (it felt like a private beach as we never saw anyone else on it other than invited friends of Karen - now friends of mine!).
The villa has everything you could want in terms of TV, music, iPod dock, squishy sofa's, divine beds, beautiful bathrooms, hot water, linen, all kitchen amenities, great selection of crockery, utensils, washer, dryer, etc., etc. The best thing for me (aside from location which was A-MAZ-ING) was that whilst the villa was very luxurious it still felt like a home, we all felt comfortable and at ease as soon as we arrived. Just a very wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view, sand, sea, swimming and cocktails! For those that like to explore without using numerous taxi's you can get the bus right outside the door ($1.25 one way to anywhere along the coast line in the north), you can easily reach the supermarket if you want to do DIY food or you can order Dominoes Pizza and they will deliver to the house. Compass Point to the west is a great place with colourful "beach hut" on the beach which makes the place feel very Caribbean and serve good food, The Beach Club to the east which is elegant and charming. You can grab a bus or taxi to the Fish Fry or right into "Downtown" for the Straw Market and shops.
Karen and Marc live next door and are BRILLIANT - so welcoming and inclusive - couldn't have managed without them - every query, question and need catered for! Thanks Karen and Marc - you made our stay! To Pat and Laura - thank you for sharing your home, it is beautiful and I really appreciated the phone contact to allay all fears and to help with all queries.
I think you get the general feel for what I thought about my stay...
...Just loved the people, loved the Bahamas and REALLY loved La Mouette.
