Reviewers Rating: Great
My husband, mother-in-law and toddler stayed at Idyllic in early June. This was the second stay at this location for my husband and me. We were looking to rent a different place this time around, but our requirements of full-house AC, a pool, close proximity to Cruz Bay and at least two interior bedrooms narrowed it down to Idyllic again.
Most things are the same as the review I wrote in July 2005. The differences included a new fancy shower in the downstairs suite. I actually would have preferred a bathtub since the house now has none, but it was nicely done. The cabana house by the pool had also been cleaned up and had a little fridge, which was nice. And the deck around the pool had been stripped and stained a dark color. It was pretty, but quite hot in the sunny afternoons. The vegetation had been trimmed back, which made for a better view from the pool & lower bedroom. But I think it had been done recently, so the branches looked a little bare instead of having lots of flowers, etc.
Another difference was a lot more heavy truck traffic on the road that runs by the house, which you heard quite a bit by the pool. I assume that was due to the construction on the other side of the hill. It was only during the day, so didn't disturb sleep and was just mildly annoying. By 'alot' I mean a truck probably went by every half-hour.
Overall a great place! Please see my earlier reviews for more details and my trip report for house pictures.
