I stayed here 8 days with my husband and child for a bit of R&R. The property comprised of three completed condo buildings with one more being finished. Flora and fauna were being planted when we arrived at the rented condo (from VRBO) and all of the pictures perfectly depicted the condo so there were no unpleasant surprises. We stayed in a spacious two-bedroom, two-full bath, two story penthouse condo with lovely ocean views of the beach. The condo was beautifully finished with warm tile floors, granite counter tops in the kitchen and very nice bathrooms. The layout was open and contemporary with the first floor comprised of the dining/living room kitchen (no air) and one bedroom (with air). The condo had high ceilings throughout so you never felt claustrophobic. The condo was decorated tastefully and had lovely towels, wash cloths and beach towels and as well as dishes. There were two balconies, one on each level and the top level comprised exclusively of the master bedroom/bathroom (with air) with a huge walk-in cedar closet. We enjoyed our stay immensely, despite extraordinarily minor gaffes. The staff were very hard-working folk and the condos were cleaned daily and assigned a specific housekeeper. All of the staff were very pleasant to us and we enjoyed our stay so much that we wished we had booked a longer vacation.
The pool was small but adequate and looked directly onto the beach. The sound of the ocean was all one heard all day and all night long. All of the buildings are beachfront, and the thoughtful design of the condos allow all residents to enjoy the view. Although construction was ongoing, the roar of the ocean was so loud, we were never disturbed.
This location is just outside the main drag and is about a 10-15 minute walk or a 1 minute car/motorcycle ride away.
The beach is long and one can walk for a long time and still not reach the end. There is a lot to do on the island--dune buggy rides, horseback riding on the beach so one can stay as busy as one wants.
I highly recommend this property and visiting this absolutely beautiful island. Make sure you shop at souvenir shops that have the prices on the merchandise, otherwise you will be ripped off.
