Ocean Pearl 05/11/2005
Reviewers Rating: Good
Rented for 9 days through CV&R. First off, CV&R was very easy to work with & gave us great service. I know,the extra 5% is a rip-off, but other than that I have no complaints with them. They didn't charge us for a bowl we broke (we told them about it at check-out).
As this was a somewhat last-minute trip for us,there wasn't much available in our price-range for the dates we needed. Ocean Pearl was available and looked okay so we went for it. It's located just above the Westin with a limited but decent view of Great Cruz Bay & beyond. As for why we only give it 2 stars is it's layout. We called it an upside-down house. The living areas (kitchen,dining,living rooms) were on the upper level with a full length deck outside. The 2 bedrooms were downstairs & were accessed by a very steep & narrow spiral staircase. This lower level is also where the pool deck is. So if you wanted to have food or drinks around the pool you had to carry the stuff down the spiral stairs. Very difficult to do! The pool was great. Large,clean & warm. Good privacy, much better than it's twin & next door neighbor,"Aqua Gem". The house was very clean & well equipped. If it weren't for the lousy upside-down design, we would have given it 3 stars.
