This was our second time staying in the one bedroom aprartment at 55 Hibiscus Avenue. The owners, Mata and Bedo Persaud are charming and delightfully sociable as they often invited us to share drinks on their patio. Always eager to help and to provide travel tips for tourists, we soon felt as though we were long time residents. We felt so comfortable and relaxed -almost one of the family . Mata's front garden is a beautiful, tropical wonderland and Hibiscus Avenue is a guiet residential street with ancient trees and flowering vines.
A short walk up hill leads to the wealthy Sandy Hill area, while a short walk in the opposite direction leads to a twenty-four hour medical center; a well-stocked fruit stand; and, of course, the beautiful beach and beach house. This beach house that is available to all Sunset Crest residents is a terrific place to spend the day, and we were lucky enough to be there for a wonderful Valentines supper which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Great walks along the beach at low tide and easy snorkeling right off the shore.
Mata is happy to arrange tours with a very knowlegable and reliable driver named Ernest who will take you to many interesting places around the island. Of course, there is always the bus and we enjoyed taking it one day for an outing to the other side of the island.
We would highly recommend staying at 55 Hibiscus Ave. As we write this review we are trying to plan when we could return and how we could stay for a longer period of time.
