Jan. 25 – Feb. 1 2017
What a wonderful experience we had staying at Glory Be – we miss our time there immensely & will definitely return. It took no time for us to start calling here “home”. I can’t recommend this little piece of paradise enough for anyone looking for something outside the realm of the all inclusive resort. Karen & Ronnie were the consummate kind hosts and were always there for conversation, a history lessons or help in any way we needed. I can’t emphasize enough how much we appreciated spending time with them. (Thank you so much for hosting our little cheese, sausage and cocktail Swaraj with you friends. I can’t believe how fast 6 hours of conversation flew by – our apologies for keeping you up until 11:30pm.) They were available whenever we looked for them but never intruded in upon us. If you want to be left alone, Yea Mon -No Worries!
The property is beautiful, quiet and secure. Ebony & Sunny (guard pups) take care of guarding the property and will let you know if someone has arrived.
Karen & Ronnie have spent a lot of time planting & tending to the vast array of flowers, trees & plants that make Glory Be such a lush environment. We stayed in the Artist Studio and wish we could have brought the whole experience back to Wisconsin with us. The main portion of the cottage wide open with high vaulted ceilings. The A/C is the ocean breeze and that’s all you really need. We kept the windows open all the time and seldom saw any insect life. We were greeted in the mornings with multiple small lizards sunning themselves in the sunny spots on the floor and chasing any tiny bugs that made the decision to enter. There is a stove, oven, fridge, freezer and tv available for preparing your own meals and watching some boob tube. We seldom turned on the tv and did little cooking, as there were multiple places within walking distance for dining and a little store to replenish our drinks.
We spent a lot of time relaxing on our covered veranda and staring out at the ocean. . I could have thrown a coconut to the ocean with a good chuck. We both slept out there several nights on the glider couch. Oh how I miss falling asleep to the chirping of the tree frogs and crickets with the crashing of the ocean waves in the background. We swam and snorkeled from the private man made beach area and even had a small swimming pool available to us. I’ll miss seeing the Doctor Birds feeding from the humming bird feeder during the day and the fruit bats
