Reviewers Rating: Excellent
Friend & I stayed here for 5 days. We were very, very happy with this villa. It’s super convenient to everything yet it feels like you’re all alone in a luxurious tree house when at the villa.
It has 2 nice size bedrooms, each with a/c and adjoining bath (loved the walk-in tiled showers). Plenty of drawer & counter space to put all our stuff in the bathrooms (pet peeve of mine is having no counter space or drawers in the bathrooms), small but well-stocked kitchen, nice comfortable living area, and drop-dead killer views, both from inside and outside the villa.
When on the upper deck, you can see from the St. James Islands (I think they’re called) on your left, to the deserted cays (?) on your right (I think they’re called Lovongo, Thatch, & Grass or something like that) with Cruz Bay, Pillsbury Sound, and St. Thomas right in the middle. The vista is really incredible. You also get sunsets (since it faces west); my favorite.
Oops, almost forgot, it also has a nice pool & pool area. We really used and enjoyed the pool. Lots of very nice tropical plants and flowers all around, from neat pots set in walls in the entry way area to huge vines, very interesting palms, colorful hibiscus and bougeanvilla, and great smelling flowers, including plumeria & jasmine (I’m a gardener, can you tell). I’m also a designer so particularly enjoyed all the designer touches, such as the parrots nestled in among orchid blossoms, the beautiful artwork, the elegant but comfortable furnishings, all the tasteful accessories.
Between the two of us, we’ve been fortunate enough to have rented homes or condos in a number of different places (Czech Republic, Italy, Mexico, Florida, South Carolina, Colorado, Portugal, Ireland, Anguilla, Bonaire, Bahamas, Netherlands, England) and both of us agreed that Perelandra was one of the best bargains for what you get. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
