Blue Tang is much better than I expected. It looked nice on the websites, but it was even better in person. This is especially true once you see the pictures of the villa being redone. The current owners purchased the house in 2000, and completely renovated it. The changes are amazing.
The house is beautifully decorated, and has everything you need. The open area (two sitting areas, dining area, kitchen) makes the house feel very big, much bigger than would be expected for a 2-4 person villa. The bedrooms are nice, as are the bathrooms. The best feature of the villa is the long, covered veranda. It spans the entire length of the house, has unbelievable views, and very comfortable furniture. I spent most afternoons and evenings just relaxing and gazing at the views.
Just for the sake of disclosure, here are my only negative comments (but I would not hesitate to stay here again). The main area of the house is not air conditioned. As stated previously, I was usually on the veranda, so this did not bother me. However, my husband is a big TV watcher, and when he relaxed in the afternoons, it was warm in the house. The breezes did help. One of the bedrooms had a queen size bed, rather than a king as advertised. We just stayed in the other bedroom (not the master), which did have a king. The outside of the house is very simple, not like some of the newer villas being built, but once inside, things change dramatically. Again, these are all minor points, and should not prevent someone from staying here.
The location of the house (close to Cruz Bay) was good for us, since we like to eat out and walk around town.
If you are thinking of renting this villa, go for it. It's wonderful.
