Alan and Heidi are two of the best hosts I've come across in my travels. They are extremely helpful and can tell you where to go, what to do, and also invite you to goings-on when there's fun to be had. On our first meeting, Alan came and picked me up from my temporary lodging and carried my bags up to the apartment. On the trip down to rent a bike we took the long way and he pointed out the various places and things I could do on the island. During my stay I would see Alan and Heidi and have nice conversations with them about what went on during the day or things I could check out later.
The property itself is beautiful. It is elevated on a hill and faces the ocean which makes for fantastic views. It is immaculate, cleaned every day, and has all the amenities you would need. In fact, Alan put in an awesome stereo and entertainment system which allows you to watch almost any movie/show/music you want. It's quiet, clean, and a great place to relax after you've been diving all day.
They provide a cell phone for your stay in case you have any issues. Also, Alan will drive you to and from town if you're just doing some scuba training.
PRO TIP: Visit their website. It has most of the information you will need if you're looking into staying here. IF you are doing more than just scuba, I suggest you rent a bike. HOWEVER, you must, absolutely, positively be comfortable driving up and down steep inclines as the property is on a hill. We're talking greater than 45 degrees.
You will have an amazing stay here.
