Just back from 8 days in this wonderful little villa! Last year stayed further up the same road and admired this stone cottage with the blue shutters. Imagine our surprise when we turned into this driveway! We were so thrilled to find this was our new home for a week!
It is in walking distance to Island Blues, Skinney Legs and the places in between.
The master bedroom was on a separate level than the main living quarters. This was so nice as we brought my son and neice, gave us a feeling of having our own "place". It was very roomy, sliding glass doors-we could lay in bed and watch the harbor and feel the breeze. Private bathroom as well.
The upper level was the main house-all one great room. The walls were stone on the inside as well. It had the feeling of "open-air" as there were 2 large archway-type doors that opened onto the large screened in deck. Tables on the inside and out. The deck below had the little pool which was wonderful. The kitchen was very well equipped, just tiny. But that was not a big problem for us.
There was a loft upstairs large enough to hold a queen size bed and some drawers
The view.......we sat out every am and pm and watched the harbor (Coral Harbor) filled with the sailboats. I walked out every morning and was filled with the best feeling in the world!
Mother hen and her 7 chicks visited every morning.
We also had a resident cat, hope he was a resident black cat. No one in the guest book mentioned him but he showed up shortly after we went to bed the first night and never left. My son named him "Sparrow" ala Captain Jack.
Construction-there were a couple of places being built just below and just above us. I don't feel you can avoid the construction anywhere on the island at this point! Unfortunately it is becoming very built up, even Coral Bay.
When searching for a villa my three top deciding factors -the view(coral bay harbor), large deck,preferable with a pool, and affordability.
This is a wonderful little house!
I will choose this one again.
