This house was so great in so many ways, it's hard to know where to start. First off, I'm picky. I research our vacation stays months in advance. I make sure the place is cared for, clean, up-to-date, etc. This house was all this and more. The pool and backyard are just gorgeous. The yard is extremely private, and beautifully landscaped.

This was fine with us, as it gave us a chance to relax, read and just really get into "island time".
