These cottages are nothing "special" really but what they lack in luxurious amenities they more than make up for in peace and quiet. They do have most everything you need to make a good meal and are comfortable. From our cabin it was 20 or so paces to the ocean for your morning and afternoon dip. Sitting on the deck with a cool beverage is a great way to waste away some time while chatting with your neighbours. The deck has a nice hammock to lay in as well, very comfortable.
At night it can be warm but the trade winds blow into your cabin through the luvoured windows cooling your cabin nicely while the sound of the waves lapping up on shore drown out any noise and you drift off to sleep.
Next door to the cabins is the Tides Restaurant owned but the cottage owners father. They have a really nice pool attached to the restaurant which we were welcome to use, and we did, every day.
If you don't feel like cooking there are two restaurants within walking distance, the Tides (which I mentioned is right next door) and Cecilia's (about a three minute walk up the beach). Both were acceptional and Friday at the Tides is early hour drinks and menu specials. These two restaurant are numbers one and two on the island so you know your going to be treated to good food.
David Fuller is the owner of the cottages and extremely helpful. He keeps the grounds spotless (between naps, I got to get me a job like his). He will also direct you to places to see and shop while you are there.
The Epicureum is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from the cabin and that is where you would go to buy your groceries and bevvies. We shopped at some of the other grocery stores but the epicureum was by far the cleanest and seemed to cater more to the tourists. Parking in St Johns is at a premium so we parked at the Epicureum and walked into the city, about a 15 minute easy walk. On one of the trips we stopped at the little roadside Roti restaurant and had a curried chicken roti, Yummmm!
Other than that, we spent the mornings exploring the island and were usually back to the cabin before the real heat of the day. The cabins seem to be nicely located so that you can do some exploring easily from there nice central location. Nothing on the island is very far away.
We enjoyed our stay, we were treated kindly by David and his staff and we will probably be having friends and family booking holidays there in the near future.
