What an incredible time we had at Emerald Dreams. We stayed the month of March and it was a "Dream". The townhouse is as described, well-maintained, comfortable, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you will need to self cater. We enjoyed coffee and our breakfast on the deck each morning, packed a picnic lunch in the provided cooler, and hit the beach. The townhouse is situated on a quiet well maintained street within the gated secure marina community. There are restaurants (el Porto, and The Crows Nest) we enjoyed. Many more to try. The Epicurion grocery store is less than a 10 minute walk and will meet all your needs including a liquor store. A 2 minute walk and you have arrived at Castaway Beach bar and a beach worthy of being described as one of the Caribbean's best. The colour of the water and the sky are often hard to believe as real. We did have a car for the month which allowed us to visit other beaches close by, Valley Church beach where you will find loungers and umbrellas for rent ($5 each) and The Nest (enjoy their lobster for lunch) and Ffrys Beach, also with loungers and Dennis's for lunch. We also took the local bus to St Johns, catching the van like bus just outside Jolly Harbour gate ($3 return pp, 20 minute ride). Quite an experience and saves trying to find parking in St Johns. Make sure you go to Cuties for lunch. We also splurged and went to Sheer Rocks for lunch. Make a reservation for a daybed and plunge pool (11:00-4:00pm), tapas for lunch- delicious. We made a daytrip to English Harbour and had lunch at Boom (again make a reservation and enjoy their infinity pool for the afternoon).
I could go on and on recommending all the wonderful things to do while staying at Emerald Dreams. We were well taken care of by Denise the housekeeping/property manager. We can't wait to have another opportunity to visit Emerald Dreams.
