Surfside had the best of everything - an awesome location, easy beach access, top notch furnishings, and great amenities. It's a very short walk down to Reef Bay and you hear and see the ocean from every room. It is a bit of a drive down mostly dirt roads to access it, but that is the price you pay for privacy! The house is beautiful with mature landscaping and a view to die for. It has air conditioning in 2 of the bedrooms which we found was enough to keep the house very comfortable.
There is a very large, very nice bedroom on the pool level, with a large bath. It has a separate outdoor entrance. The main level of the house has a smaller bedroom, bath, and an open dining/kitchen/livng area. Beautiful furnishings and amenities: soft linens, beautiful woods, tropical touches, well equipped kitchen, nice outdoor grill and dining area, etc. Nice audio and video systems, lots of books to read, lots of St. John guidebooks, and the villa was well equipped with things like beach towels, bug spray, etc. The kitchen was well equipped with spices and condiments and the fridge had bottled water, cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, pineapple juice and cream of coconut, and a bowl of fresh fruit when we arrived. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a king sized bed, large bath, walk in closet with a safe, and a nice balcony with chairs looking out over the surf.
I saw a post that mentioned that Surfside didn't have curtains. They have remedied that and there are curtains throughout.
The villa was ultra private - we never saw another soul, not even on the beach.
The pool and hot tub were great. I don't usually get in hot tubs at villas because they never seem as clean as I'd like them to be or they have a funny smell. This one was pristine. Spotless.
