We rented the Deckhouse for a week and it was very nice.Mom had her own bedroom and bathroom which she loved and the setting was gorgeous.We like privacy and relaxation and this had both. The house sits back from the private beach and that was just fine. This is a private vacation home and not a villa. We have stayed in hotels on the beach and they are wonderful if you want a hotel, but this is a home, so don't be surprised when a piece of molding is cracked, a lizard is on the window at night, the iguanas poop on the deck stairs or the hot water is not full blast in a second. The secure gate was a bonus and the home has a key pad for entry so no keys to worry about getting misplaced.We loved having a place for the dogs to go out and the amenities were great. We paddle boarded from the private beach and snorkeled around in the bay. There are bath rooms next to the beach and cute cabanas to sit in the shade. The view at sunset in so pretty and the hammocks were very nice to relax.
