Spent a week here with 7 people from two different generations. One group came to participate in Kadooment and another just wanted a "holiday." The property is exactly as featured in the photos. It is very "homey" while also a bit upscale. Although the beach is about a 10-15 minute walk away, the splash pool is a nice alternative.
The staff is very attentive. Merle, the cook, is amazing. And Ramanda, ensures that the house is in order.
One suggestion to future guests: Let the concierge arrange to pick up and deliver your groceries. I thought it would be easier to do it myself since I was already on the island, but in the long run I realized the 15% service charge is worth it.
In the end, everyone was pleased.

Spent 2 weeks with family and friends. The villa is gorgeous and extremely close to the center of Holetown (maximum a 5 minute walk to the grocery store and Surfside beach). I have stayed at many villas in Holetown over the years and this was probably the best location (unless you can afford a villa direct on the beach). We had morning visits on most days from the local monkeys (they use the back fence as a highway). Merle and Aranda (I hope I spelt her name correctly) took very good care of us the whole time and we really appreciated the hard work and long hours they put in. The local Property Manager (Michelle) was also helpful and accommodating especially given that we kept calling her because people kept locking themselves out of their safe (the local rum punch will make you do silly things if taken in large enough quantities). I would have given the villa an excellent rating except for 1 thing (although it is not the villa's fault). The neighbor next door is probably the most unpleasant person I have ever dealt with. Our first introduction to him was at about 8PM on our second night when he shoved his head through the bushes and started yelling we were being too loud. Granted we were having a good time but not so loud as to deserve such treatment. Had he been polite we would have been very accommodating and understanding. I could go on and on about the different "encounters" with him but suffice it to say, any noise level above what you hear in a library will get a reaction from him - no matter what the time of day is...We did eventually learn how to deal with him, and what initial upset us we now see as funny memories and stories to tell our friends, so I would definitely go back. Just wanted to give everyone fair warning ;-)
