Second Wind is a three bedroom, three bathroom villa with pool and hot tub. Actually, it is a one bedroom, one bath villa - with two detached guesthouses (a bedrooom and bathroom in each. The main villa has a living roomo dining room and kitchen.
It works well for one couple, since it doesn't feel too big - we just ignored the other two structures (Actually, that's not quite true. We had difficulty getting hot water in the main bedroom, so we ended up showering in bathroom #2).
This place would be good for three couples – each bedroom/bathroom is identical – all with king beds. Once in your bedroom, you have lots of privacy. The living room; however, may be a bit small for three couples - but how much time do you really spend inside anyway?
The deck is magnificent – huge with lots of seating and a fantastic view. Hot tub holds six; plunge pool is nice. The home/deck is fairly private. We could see and hear one of our neighbors (another rental)- though they were far enough away that they weren't intrusive (and I doubt they would be able to tell if we were sitting on the deck with or without a swimsuit).
The primary disadvantage (for us) was the distance to Coral Bay and the north shore beaches.
We were, however, within walking distance of Reef Bay beaches. A short walk down the road there is a trail to get down to the beach. The first part of the trail is steep (there is actually a rope or two on the trail to assist with the walk down). We had walked by the trail entrance a couple times before realizing it was the trail. The beach at the end was fair to good for snorkeling. Very rocky, so not the best to sit and relax unless you had a chair (which are provided at the villa, but may be tricky to manuever down the path.
We stayed here in November 2003.
