Seriously, one of the best vacations my family and I have been on! This home was a great launching point for all of our adventures, as well as providing a comfortable atmosphere to relax and recharge. Our bed was SUPER comfortable (something I highly value - I believe it was a memory foam mattress), and the home was well maintained and very clean. The owners didn't skimp on making sure they provided good quality items throughout, from having lots of plates and glasses, to high end washer and dryer, we were happy with the quality!
The home was instantly welcoming, with its high ceilings it feels open and spacious - a really relaxing, calming atmosphere. We love nature and exploring and having the kayaks with front door access to the ocean was incredible. It was nice to be on the mangrove side, as we were not affected if it happened to be a windy day, and could still get out on the water. Being on this side of the island also let us go out and see so much marine life - it was breathtaking! Everyday the kids would see something new and exciting, like star fish, a crab, or big crane flying by to name just a few!
Make sure you take a paddle out under the bridge and over to the sand flats to try out the lazy river, one of the best days ever! We saw sea turtles and sting rays, and when we got out on the sand bar, the kids spent the afternoon building sandcastles and enjoying the larger waves and soft sand. Lots of shells to be collected as well!
We were able to enjoy some of the local restaurants, and some meals in, the kitchen provided everything we needed to prepare our favourite meals. Splash and Santana were our favourite restaurants.
I would suggest bringing water shoes for going out at low tide. Also pack some bug spray if you plan to go out to adventure at dawn or dusk, but in between is no issue.
My husband and kids enjoyed going over to the bridge to fish, there is a marina close by to purchase bait, and fishing gear if you don't have any.
During our stay we went to the Tropic of Cancer Beach as well as Font Hill, and both were incredible! If you have kids, I would also recommend taking a boat trip and seeing the swimming pigs or the iguanas, our kids loved it! Stocking Island is also a great way to spend a day, you can relax in hammocks and pet sting rays, it's pretty chill!
We felt safe and at home during our stay, we would certainly book this place again, and I have highly recommended it to friends and family!
We had the perfect vacation.The pictures of this property do not do it justice. Everything you need and want in a vacation home. The house and location was beautiful and private. Thank you Martin for all your help :)
