We spent a week in one of the studios at Carpe Diem in early March having spent the previous week in Barbados. If you want 5 star luxury and international cuisine with prices to match - choose the former, if you want genuine friendly locals in a real fishing village, delicious fresh Caribbean food, laid back, helpful and friendly hosts and up close and personal wildlife experiences choose Carpe Diem. We love the sun and although the dry season was wetter than we expected the rain did not detract from enjoyment of one of our best holidays. Although not normally ones to socialise much with other tourists, the people at Carpe Diem were all looking for the same thing so we all got on very well and enjoyed one another's company. Chris and Yvonne have got it just right - thanks so much guys. Hope to see you at the pub in Salisbury soon.

Fully equipped kitchen areas with larger than usual refrigerator, real stove/grill, toaster, juicer, water filter etc. Personal safe deposit box. All the rooms have great views of the ocean, without even getting out of bed, and great sunsets as it faces almost due West! ( Banana & Cocoa trees may obscure the studio view a little depending on how they are fruiting!!(House faces 240Degrees). We have just built the "Garden Room" an annex to Studio 2 to accommodate a child/adult so as to give the parents a little more privacy. The 2 safe beaches are 100 yards away and all village amenities are within walking distance. Wi-fi hotspot/5GB broadband! Check with your partner if you are allowed to use it though! A recent couple ended up arguing because he stayed in daily contact with his office...... Ideal for birdwatchers as you can see most of the island's birds from the balcony. We can arrange diving, car hire, rainforest walks etc. Smoking allowed outside on the balcony,( well it is a wooden house! ) A lot of couples seem to get engaged while staying with us so yes we can sort out wedding arrangements as well........................!! We have been awarded the Trip Advisor "Certificate of Excellence" for the last 6 years for which we have to thank our guests for their reviews and trust it means we are getting it right! ... more less
