This was our second stay at Argonauta and stepped out of our car onto the driveway, it was like we had come home. We absolutely LOVE this villa. The flow of it is so nice, and the views are absolutely gorgeous. It really was like we had never left, and everything we loved so much about it the previous summer was still the same.
We like that all of the rooms have king sized beds, the entire house has the option of a/c (not just the bedrooms), the kitchen is stocked with everything we needed as far as blenders, pots, pans, knives, etc. We love that the rental company does not completely clean out everything the previous renters left so there are spices and other things like sugar for the bananaquits there. Check the cabinets and the fridge before heading to the grocery. Also, the rental company leaves a nice ďgift basketĒ (not actually in the basket) as a welcome that we definitely appreciated. The villa also has ample beach towels, beach chairs, an ice chest that we kept in our car, and lots of other amenities that you can leave at home like hair dryers and such.
I canít tell you how much we like this villa mainly because of itís location to town yet you feel like you are on the other end of the island with no other villas around. In actuality there is a villa under construction next door, but you do not see or hear any of it from Argonauta. We never heard any construction noises. It was under construction last year when we were there too, and we never heard as much as a hammer last year either.
Our favorite part of this villa is the views off of the verandah. Once again this summer, I spent the majority of my time at the villa sitting out there just taking in the views. The sunsets from there are to die for, and itís also entertaining watching the car ferries come and go. We also enjoyed watching the comings and goings from Great Cruz Bay and the Westin. The views from the lower deck are just as gorgeous as the ones from the verandah as well. It was refreshing to be in the pool and watch the sunset with a drink in hand just relaxing and knowing that during your stay at Argonauta you are in your own little paradise within paradise.
My other favorite thing about renting Argonauta is dealing with Lisa Durgin of Vacation Vistas. I couldnít ask for a more pleasant person to deal with. She answered all of my questions before we got there and when we were on island without ever making me feel uncomfortable about calling or emailing her. This was our third time dealing with her for rentals, and I canít say enough nice things about every experience we have had with her.
Like I said in my last review, I hate to post a review of Argonauta on here for fear that it wonít be available when we want to rent it the next time, but I will just have to take my chances.
