          I was going to ask about the baby jellyfish and also is it better to come the first week of October or in February. If we rented the villa over the water and couldn't get in the water that would be disappointed because that would be the only reason to get the villa over the water. Like to know is it knee deep,waist deep with the villa over the water or would it be better with the plunge pool

          We are looking for a private place to be alone. My concerns with with beautiful place is because its a small island. Will it be a nice place for us to have alone private time? Concerned with some of the comments and pictures with teenagers and children. After all isn't this why we would pay this high price to get away? Gosh would not want to get to this small island and stuck listening to peoples children and teenagers! I thought this was an adults only?
