This is a long overdue review. I stayed for one week in early November (US election week) with my husband and one-year-old son. We stayed in Seagrape villa and were spoiled rotten.

The Villa is beautiful. The staff accommodated every wish and we felt pampered and truly "on vacation". The major decisions were what, when, and where to have our meals.

Please do not hesitate to stay at these villas. The staff, especially Kerry Ann, were extremely accommodating and friendly. The beach was perfect.
