This is a stunningly beautiful property with great management. Kim patiently answered all my questions pre- and post-booking, helped with the stocking of the refrigerator prior to our arrival, and cheerfully arranged complimentary transportation from the airport--all of which I would recommend. Kim also recommended a local rental car agency that dropped a car at the villa the morning after our arrival. We, like most I guess due to flight scheduling, arrived after dark. When we arrived, we were met by Ursil, the very sweet housekeeper (and great cook too), who had lit the villa in anticipation of our arrival. You are expecting, from the pictures on VRBO, a beautiful home. Let me say, the pictures do not do it justice. It is absolutely stunning at night (and in the day too) with terra cotta tile throughout, rich mahogany trim, and a well equipped, modern kitchen. At your disposal you will find a Hobie Cat sailboat, 2 kayaks, and a small motorized dinghy. There are a few restaurants easily accessible by boat and we motored to lunch on several occasions. All great fun! Here is what concerned me prior to traveling, and what I experienced:
1) Driving on the left -- actually this was my biggest concern. Having never done this before (it should be on everyone's bucket-list) It took about a day of driving and then it was natural. The first day requires a lot of focus, but after that, no problem whatsoever. Yes you can do it too. By the way, you can spot the Americans because instead of using their turn-signals, they turn their windshield wipers on. I did it, you'll do it too....
2) Mosquitos - yes there are a few. I'd say there are fewer than most places I have lived in the U.S. A little bit of OFF bug spray applied kept them away completely.
3) Reception of the local people -- one never knows how the locals will react to Americans. All I can say is that we were warmly received EVERYWHERE we went. The island has a reputation for hospitality and I have to say that I experienced that over and over again. Grenadians are warm, fun loving, generous people and we felt welcomed again and again.
In the end, the things that concerned me prior to travel, were not the least bit troubling once I arrived.
If you want a unique vacation in a beautiful spot with wonderful hosts, this is the place for you. We will always remember our trip to this beautiful island and the gorgeous villa where we stayed. We absolutely loved it there.
