As another reviewer stated, it was a bit scary to wire transfer a large sum of money to an overseas bank, but everything worked out more perfectly than I could have imagined. Both the owner of the condo, Dianne, and the property manager, Avenice, were great to work with. Avenice's assistant, Clarissa, meet us at the airport. Clarissa held a sign with out last name, so she was easy to find. She put us in a cab and then immediately met us at the condo to let us in. Avenice met with us first thing Monday morning (we arrived on Saturday afternoon) to give us a thorough orientation, answer questions about the condo and the island, and to recommend tours and drivers. She answered all of our questions and got us the extra set of keys we requested. Upon checkout after verifying that everything was still in working order, she returned our security deposit in cash. The whole process was very simple.
The condo itself felt a bit cramped because there is A LOT of furniture in the living area. We moved some of it around for our week's stay to make things more comfortable and then the place was perfect for us. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was a godsend. The living area also had air conditioning, but we didn't use it. We spent most of our time on the huge balcony which had an amazing breeze constantly blowing off of the Atlantic. We also used the pool daily. Since it is the off season, we had the pool to ourselves most days.
The Atlantic Beach is very close to the condo; it is down a short path right on the grounds of the condo complex. Be aware though that the beach may be unusable. While we were there, the beach was covered in seaweed. There were (and I am not exaggerating here), six feet deep piles of it extending across the entire beach, while more continued to wash in from the ocean. This is obviously nobody's fault, and an unusual occurrence. Apparently, it's a problem that is plaguing much of the Caribbean right now. Please don't come to this condo (at least anytime soon), and expect to take a long walk down the Atlantic coastline because it is truly unpassable. Yet, the view was lovely, and as stated before, the breeze was unparalleled.
The condo is also nicely situated. In one direction are some restaurants, a golf course, a coffee shop, a pizza place, a cab stand, and RAMS (a minimart). In the other direction is "the strip" and South Frigate Bay Beach on the Caribbean. This is a fun place to eat and get drinks.
