We (4 adults, 3 children) spent 10 days in Nicole and Zenon’s fantastic beachfront house in January. The booking process was painless and Nicole was quick in answering our queries. We felt well taken care of before arriving.
The location of this house is fantastic. Beach front! Nothing but a pedestrian walk between the garden and the beach. There are so many sports activities close by as well as two very nice restaurants in walking distance that we ended up cancelling some of our sightseeing trips to stay at the house. The house, tastefully decorated, is perfectly equipped with WiFi, open-air grill and even its own water-filtering system. The large veranda is the centerpiece of the house. Dining, lounging and dozing. All happens there. I loved the hammock and spent a lot of time on it. The swimming pool is not big (i.e. not for lap swimming) but perfect for a quick cool down or those who don’t like to swim in the ocean.
The children enjoyed stand-up paddling and took some surfing classes at the surfing rental & school right next to the house. The waves were not very high, but there were always a couple of surfers out there. All happens close to the house. We adults could watch the children having fun in the water, while sipping wine all from the veranda :-). With my wife I enjoyed quiet sunrise beach-walks. Leaving the house turning left, we could walk for hours on the sandy beach. For those like me who don’t like big waves, it’s a mere 10 minutes walk to typically flat water just after Punta Bonita.
The house is very charming and „atmosphery“ with a typical Caribbean thatched roof and a balcony „retreat“ attached to each room. Mimio, who is in-house gardener, is very kind and organized absolutely delicious mangos and avocados for us.
Our family had a fantastic time at Nicole and Zenon’s house and we highly recommend it. Nicole, her staff and Beatrice (the house admin) are lovely people and available if needed.
