Great stay, but a couple issues need to be addressed
Great house and location. Very windy during our stay, but Taylor Bay was fairly calm and only a 3 min walk from the house. Amenities were nice, but the grill was broken (maintenance guy said it required a new part to be ordered), there is no garbage disposal (may be a septic issue), and there was little to no water pressure three of the days we were here. The water pressure was a neighborhood issue due to maintenance work being done, but just a heads up about that possibility. We recommend grabbing some bottled water to last awhile in case that happens during your stay. If you are looking to rent jet skis, call “rent a ski” on sopadilla bay beach and they will deliver them straight to the villa. Las Brisas is a tasty local restaurant worth checking out if you don’t feel like cooking every night. Overall it’s a nice setup that has what you need, and the recent renovations were well done.
Thank you for your stay at Villa Calypso! We're very sorry about the unfortunate timing of the area-wide water outage during your stay. Water problems are seldom and when they do arise are typically fixed promptly. The water company rep explained to us that the shortage was due to the placement of a new pump station and the area-wide lower than normal water pressure was not anticipated, so there was no notice given. As for the garbage disposal, we generally don't have them at our oceanfront villas because of septic issues. We have reviewed the gas grill situation with the owner and found a weak burner ignition, so we are going to get either the part or the entire unit replaced.
Thank you for your stay and we hope you'll come again!
The team at Elite Destination Homes
This house met and went beyond all expectations. Extremely clean, everything worked great. The steps leading into ocean were perfect. We spent lots of time floating in the ocean right in front of the house. The closest restaurant is about a 3 minute drive and it was fantastic. Sopadilla Beach is also about a 3 minute drive and has jet skis for rent as well as paddle boards, etc. Adele met us at the house and was only a phone call away for anything that we might have needed.
We are so happy to hear that Villa Calypso has met all your exceptions. It is truly one of our most loved homes! There are so many things to do around the home and the area. Thanks for your wonderful review and we look forward to having you stay with Elite Destination Homes again.
This home was recently updated and they spared no expense! Each room was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need to prepare a meal. The view was exceptional! But the best part of all was the screened in upper deck where we enjoyed every meal and relaxed on the couches in the evenings. We enjoyed paddling in the kayaks, floating in the pool and just overall relaxing in this home. However, we also ventured out from this peaceful environment to enjoy the near by beaches of Taylor Bay, Sapodilla and Grace Bay, all very close by. The restaurant less than a mile away, Las Brisas, serves delicious food along the waterfront if you would like a break from cooking or grilling on the outdoor grill.
Thank you for your review! We are happy to here that you enjoyed your stay and thoroughly enjoyed the features and amenities of the home. We look forward to you staying with us again!
Fabulous week in paradise
Villa Calypso was everything we expected to be and more. The rooms had the perfect number of beds and spacious enough for everyone. The kitchen and outdoor grill had everything we needed for the 9 of us and food shopping was easy. Being right on the ocean side was lovely for ocean breezes and the water depth was nice for football games at low tide with all the boys. Taylor Bay was also beautiful and a short walk across the street and we could kayak to Sapodilla bay too. There were plenty of places to be separate or together in this home which worked well for the 9 of us. Las Brisas was a great restaurant and bar a short walk away for drinks and sunset watching. We visited all parts of the island by car but our favorite was da Conch Shack and Kalooki's for their Scorched Conch and Conch Fritters. Getting used to driving on the left wasn't as hard as expected and the shopping in Grace Bay was fun when the boys went deep sea fishing one day. I felt very safe on the island and the locals were warm and friendly. The staff at Elite were very helpful and accommodating for any concerns we had and gave us the inside scoop on some of the island activities. Our favorite was the Fish Fry on Thursday night's where they have live music, multiple food vendors and island souvenirs in one spot on Bight Beach in the children's beach area. Overall a magical week for all of us. We travelled with 5 teens between the two families.
We are so happy to hear about you and your family's stay at Villa Calypso. It is truly one of our most loved homes and we couldn't have ask for a better review! There are so many things to do around the area and I'm glad we were able to assist you in taking advantage of all the wonderful activities. Thanks for your kind words and we look forward to having you stay with Elite Destination Homes again.
Perfect Family House
Villa Calypso was a perfect, 5 bdrm home in which to gather for our family reunion. Stunning, Taylor Bay beach is a short walk away and perfect for young children. Our group loved the pool and giant screened in porch overlooking the sea. Kerry and Adele made all our requests happen and took care of a minor AC problem quickly. We loved our visit and take away many happy memories of cooking big family dinners and game evenings on the porch!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Villa Calypso for your family reunion. It really is a great location for family activities. We look forward to you staying with us again!
The house was fantastic! There were a couple of little things that were broke/didn't work (tv in upstairs master did not turn on, outside basement porch lights did not work, one lounge chair was broke) but other than that we enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for informing us about the amenities and furniture. We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope to get these things fixed soon. We look forward to you staying with us again!
