My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in the L’Isle Amour suite at Aqua Bay Villas 2/6-2/12/11. Their four separate suites, each with a private entrance, are secluded behind a private, gated, stone wall entrance. Upon entering, one immediately notices the shading, lush vegetation and serene fountain bubbling in the side courtyard.
Once inside this villa hideaway, you are greeted with a cool breeze and sunshine streaming in through the many windows and the doors that open onto the spacious patio. The villa’s living space was decorated with style and comfort in mind. The kitchen and eating area was cheerful, bright, and well equipped. A joy to cook in! The ceiling fans coupled with the breezes off the ocean made the villa cool and inviting. Stepping out on to the patio you can listen to birds, watch an Iguana laying lazily in a tree and gaze out onto the Island scenery and water. Plenty of space to dine, lounge and grill on the patio.
The bedroom and bathroom were accessed by climbing the spiral staircase. The four poster bed and matching end tables gave the feel of a lush plantation home. Finishing touches included crisp designer bed linens and accessories.....so comfortable and inviting. AIr conditioning and ceiling fan kept the room cool and comfortable to induce a restful sleep. The view from the bedroom patio was perfect for watching sailboats and sunsets. The bathroom was adequate in size, and supplied with thick, soft towels.
Everything you needed for beach travel was there: beach chairs, towels, cooler! The pool patio is set below the villas. It is very quiet, private, and surrounded by trees. There is a gazebo on the patio and it holds a large selection of books to choose from. The pool is a perfect size to float, and lounge in. The sparkling clear water was refreshing and the perfect ending of a day in paradise!
We were so pleased with our stay that we are already looking forward to booking the same villa for our next St. John stay.
