Fabulous! The villa was perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely located with gorgeous views, very beautifully decorated - we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had everything we needed from services to little things like beach chairs and towels.

A great place with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

while the villa is located pretty far off the main road, we had convenient access to lots of trail heads. the house was beautiful and the pool was great to beat the mid day heat. being able to wake up to the view out our bed room door was one of the best things about the Villa.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

It is a rare thing at my age not to be disappointed by an eagerly anticipated event, but I am happy to say this was one of those occasions. I could not be happier with the whole experience. The pictures of the villa, although beautiful, do not do it justice: it's absolutely lovely. I don't know how much the housekeepers are paid, but whatever it is it's not enough...everything was immaculate. It looked brand new when we walked in on our first day. The greeter was courteous and highly informative and even drove us to the supermarket to get supplies before taking us to the car rental company. The view of Coral Bay from the balconies of the villa is spectacular...what a way to start every morning. Cell phone reception and internet signal were both excellent.This was my first vacation in four years, but it was worth the wait!
