My husband and I have visited Glory be on a number of occations and have been coming back again and again. It is the ideal place to come to relax and de-stress.
There is the artist's studio and 2 cottages all with beautiful patios and fantastic views of the sea. One can snorkel or swim when the sea is calm. There is a small private built-up beach and steps leading down into the sea. The pool is surrounded by tropical vegetation and is a delight. I found this video which shows Glory Be as it really is ....www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm2AcROuYM4
We left the windows and doors open allowing for the cool tropical air to freely flow through. Local visitors like small lizards and birds were always present. This is the wonderful life of the tropics.
The property is in excellent shape and the living accomodations have been designed most artistically. Much of the work has been done by the owners themselves who also live in the main house and were able to deal with any problem that arose.
For anyone wanting a peaceful, private, quiet, relaxing, self-catering holiday, Glory Be is the place to choose.
