What can I say about this place?.... It's absolutely fantastic and definitely a home away from home. My friends and I had the pleasure of staying in both the front and back house for our carnival vacation and would certainly come back. The location is great. The Savannah is literally around the corner, you can hear the mas trucks going past and the steel pans beating from the house. There is a small convenience store on the next corner which sells cooked food and is open 24 hours. There's an Italian restaurant, bank and Mcdonald's on the road. Cipriani boulevard is the road parallell to woodford street and has bars and restaurants on it. TGI fridays is a 5 minute walk from the house. The supermarket is less than a 10 minute walk away and has a moneygram outlet (bonus!) The avenue, where all the clubs are, is a further 5 min walk from the supermarket. Basically everything is in within walking distance of this lovely home.
The house - the house is secure, at no point did we feel threatened or unsafe whilst in the house. The house is spacious, has a large dining and living room. all the rooms have at least one double bed in them. There are two bathrooms which is a bonus when living with other females! The kitchen is fully equipped, everything i would have at home is basically in the house.
The owners - Lucy and Hendrik are lovely people and even though i have never met them i consider them as friends. Any questions i asked were answered rapidly. They are very patient, friendly and accommodating people, They even organised a driver to pick us up from the airport. You can tell that they are professional from the care and attention they gave us.
The Caretaker - The caretaker, Anthony, lives onsite and is a lovely guy. He makes you feel comfortable and safe. Anything we needed help with, he was there for us. He's a great guy.
I would recommend everybody to stay here. I read a previous comment about furniture being old or the place needing revamping. I personally did not see anything that needed changing. It is not a hotel it is a home and I believe that all the furniture add a rustic and homely feel to this place. I had no problems with the owners or the house and will definitely be staying again! If I had to use one word to describe everything about this place, including the owners, driver and everything else it would be 'Perfect'.
THANK YOU Lucy and Hendrik for letting us stay in your lovely house and we look forwards to staying there again.
