My Hubby & I recently rented the lower unit of the Far Horizons.
Great location for anyone that wants to be close to town.
Anna, the owner was great to deal with, she met us at the ferry & took us up to the villa & showed us around. As we were not renting a vechicle she offered to take us to Strafish the following day to pick us some staples, which we felt was very nice. We didn't take her up on this as we didn't need much & felt she is busy with a new little baby.
We were very impressed & pleased with the villa. It is a small 1 bedroom,1 bathroom place just past the Gallows. It is terrific for a couple or 3 people at the most.
There is a large parking area to the side of the villa for 2 vehicles.
The view it is not spectacular, but you can see out towards St Thomas, over Frank Bay.
There is a large covered patio with a four person cedar table, two wrought iron chairs with a small table & two loungers. There is also a large BBQ on the patio.
Beautiful for relaxing & enjoying dinner.
There is a small spash pool as well, it is not very big, but was great to sit with your feet in & enjoy a drink.
There is a good size size yard with 2 Adirondack chairs as well.And a neighbour Rooster that takes a stroll thru each afternoon on his way into town for Happy Hour.....LOL
There is a fairly large room as you enter that I would assume is the livingroom, it is nicely furnished with a pullout couch, small wicker table & 2 chairs, wicker love seat, another larger wicker chair & end table, There is also a small radio/cd system.We never used this room as the outdoor patio is so inviting.
The kichen is galley style, with a fridge, microwave & stove.
There are minimal dishes, but enough to enjoy a home cooked meal.
The Bedroom is fairly large with a very comfortable king size bed, night tables, dresser & corner unit that has a TV,VCR & phone.
The bathroom is faily small, but clean & well stocked with towels & toilet paper.
There is also an upper unit, that I believe has just come on the market. I would think that the view would be much better. I didn't get a chance to check it out, but it looks very nice as well. They just finished doing some renovations. It has a bit larger pool out the front of the units, so I don't think it would be as private.
We would rent Far Horizon's again in a minute.
