Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been a professional travel writer for the last twenty years. I have stayed at the finest five star hotels all over the world. A few weeks ago I stayed at Bunny and Jim’s condo and it was simply perfect. I loved it because the price was reasonable, it was clean and quiet, and footsteps away from the most beautiful beach in the world as well as a fun casual place to eat and drink. Unlike at a traditional hotel I had a well-stocked kitchen, which gave me the option of “eating in”, a washer and dryer, and the layout was so spacious it felt like one's ’own home not a tiny hotel room. I highly recommend it, give it five stars and plan to return as often as possible.

Best value in Grace Bay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very nice, clean and one of the best priced around. You can walk to the grocery store in minutes. We have been going to Provo for six years and hope we get the option to book this property next year. The property owner and manager were very responsive to all requests!

OK if you like ants

  • 1 of 5

The trouble I'm having writing this review is that I enjoyed our stay, regardless of the pitfalls of the room and unit management. Let me start with the positive points:

Location: The unit is farthest from the beach, but it is still just a 3 minute walk through tree-lines paths and past the pool. It was easy to bring the water noodles to the beach every day. It was also walking distance to all the shops and restaurants you want to go to, and the grocery store is close enough to walk to as well. Stumbling distance from bars and the casino too, if that's your thing.

The Beach: Absolutely as reviewed a zillion times, just plain perfect.

The Resort: Pricey, as with all resorts in Provo, but a great staff, and good food.

The Unit: Plenty of space, all the pots, pans, utensils, cups, and beach gear you need for a great vacation.

Now, the negative stuff...

The Unit: Ants were literally everywhere (yes, beds too). We tried several times to get in touch with the property manager, and with Bunny, but nobody responded to us until we were back home, and even then the half-hearted apology we received seemed tacked on to a note that basically told us we should have read our literature more closely.

No Balcony: In an island where every room has a balcony with a nice view of ocean or palm trees, this unit has a table with 2 chairs on the landing where the stairs bring you down to the parking lot. It seems the balcony units are a floor above, so that could have been in he description.

Maintenance: Several other issues were found in the unit: not enough TP, and all the remotes were dead, wonky fans, Buzzing fire alarm etc., but of course we had nobody that would get back to us, so we toughed it out.

That's it... like I said it was still a nice getaway. We learned to live with the ants, and we used the patio by the beach instead of our walkway table. Will we return? Yes, for sure, but not to this unit. I gave Bunny every chance to make this right, but no refund was offered. Not even a discount on a future week, so although I dislike leaving this negative review, I feel I must warn anyone that is thinking of choosing this for their extremely expensive vacation.

Owner's Response: Of course this is disheartening because we have always received a 5 star rating. Our property manager is located one mile from our property. She reaches out to our guests prior to their arrival and always provides her contact information, including her email and cell phone number. Our property manager, Thashena, did not receive an email from this guest during his entire stay. The guest first emailed us (without cc'ing Thashena) around the middle of a 7 night stay. When WE contacted Thashena, she immediately visited our unit (the guests were not in at the time) there were no ants seen. She left ant traps as a precaution. She resolved the other issues that were raised by the guest and left additional supplies. She again left her contact information and a note that she was only a mile away if there were any other concerns. We appreciate and use any feedback, such as the email from this guest, as a checklist and strive to constantly improve. The TV batteries were in backward, we are not sure what a "wonky fan" means and there was no buzzing noise. We take any feedback seriously and those who have communicated with Bunny know that she is VERY prompt in responding. We have had several guests since this guest’s departure and we haven't had a complaint. All compliments. Addressing this guests comment of "extremely expensive": Our island view suite is not expensive, especially when location and amenities are considered. Compared us to the other resorts and you will see the value for this amazing oceanfront resort location. Check out our prices. Our last email to this guest was that we were sorry if he experienced any inconvenience and we wrote: "What may we do for you?” We did not receive a response. This is our second home and we are proud of it. We keep it clean and neat and in good order. We are happy to say that those who have stayed with us have loved it and many have returned again.

Best value in Provo!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely week at Jim & Bunny's place. It's exactly as advertised - the best value on the island. The condo is spacious and light-filled and having a full kitchen and laundry is a definite plus! (Because we made full use of the laundry, we overpacked waaay more than we needed!) In terms of location, this place can't be beat - you're within a 10 minute walk to most of the action on the island: bars, restaurants, shops, casino, golf course, etc. And then there's that beach! The best beach we've ever been to, hands down. And the amazing thing is, it's not very crowded! I snorkeled one day at Coral Gardens right off the beach (a $16 cab ride or a 40 minute walk; BTW, the snorkeling is very good - esp. since it's right off the beach) and the beach up there was much more crowded and not even half as wide as it is by Ocean Club West. The pool area is lovely too, as are the grills (they clean them every day and it's fun - and less expensive - to cook in 1 or 2 nights per week). Communication with Bunny was outstanding. She is not only quick to respond, but it also very helpful with tips for restaurants, things to do, etc. Since the beach was our primary focus, we didn't rent a car (really, it's not necessary - it's a $33 cab ride from the airport and just about everything else is within walking distance). We highly recommend this property!!!

Owner's Response: LOVED having you! Come Again. And Yes, we made the mistake of bringing our daughter to this Caribbean Beach before she had seen others! Now she thinks they are all this way - NOT! hahaha Thank you. Bunny and Jim

Location couldn't have been better

  • 4 of 5

Very convenient location, literally minutes from some good restaurants, grocery store, bakery, and Grace Bay beach, as well as the resort pool and other amenities. It's a 10-15 minute walk to popular restaurant Danny Buoys and a shopping area, and less than 5-10 to the most popular restaurant on the island (make a reservation before, or on the day you arrive for later in your week as it fills up very quickly). Lots of free parking.

The Unit was spacious, kitchen was well supplied with cooking and serving needs (not food/condiment items, but none were expected), bright and open with large windows and light-colored furniture. In-unit laundry and provided pods of soap was a bonus. There are some toys in the hall closet for the beach (some body boards, pool noodles and beach chairs), but not much for playing in the sand (just one bucket, a shovel, and a small crab shape for filling with sand), so we wish we had brought more. There are some books and although there is a box from a game, it doesn't have any proper game pieces in it.

The unit was clean and mostly well-maintained, though it did feel like it lacked personal touches or personality, more like a place used only for rentals. It's on the second floor (stairs only) and gets lots of light. Some things needed minor repair, such as a few wobbly chairs/stools and a toilet paper holder needing re-installation. The washing machine and dishwasher are convenient but very loud, so take that into consideration when deciding to run them. The fridge has a water dispenser and ice maker, which was invaluable. We received only one key to the apartment, so while we made this work as we were mostly together, given there's room for 6 adults in this unit, bigger groups may find this restricting. The rooms are at the front of the apartment and the main living area at the back, which is good separation if kids have to go to bed early.

We thought the phone in the unit provided would be able to make local calls, but we had to 'recharge' the phone ourselves in order to do so by applying money to the account. If you have an unlocked cell phone, maybe bring that and buy a SIM since the directions are to leave the phone in the apartment. Wifi is provided, but can be inconsistent.

The property is good, has a nice layout, and works well for families. The owners and manager are very responsive to emails. We can recommend staying here for your TCI trip - the location can't be beat.

Owner's Response: Hi ! Glad that you experienced Providenciales! Yes, it's paradise... Thank you for your feedback. As you'll notice, we are used to receiving 5 stars. We are happy that you enjoyed our suite and Ocean Club and Provo! As I think I relayed, we never know what beach toys have come and gone out of our hall closet:) On our responses to future guests we will let them know that there is a HUGH bucket of sand toys for kids. It's on the first step at the beach and they are for everyone!:) Funny, we just left the island and before we left, Jim, tightened all the screws on the kitchen chairs and they are wobble free - we noticed that too. Also getting bathroom painted where toilet paper handle came out. We always provide 2 keys to our parties (just like hotels issue 2). Don't know why you just had one - that's a first. We also had perfect WIFI - go figure. Good suggestion to bring your own phone. We just had one in the suite as a courtesy and even with the directions there, people couldn't figure out how to use it. So we just took it out:). All in all sounds like your trip was great and you are welcomed back anytime! Best - Bunny and Jim
