“very good holiday letting at a great location”

Guadeloupe is a great holiday Island and this apartment (it’s one of two, the other is smaller) is really good. The area where it is located, Deshaises, offers a lot of variation. Strangely, this variation may be a long drive away if you stay in a place more popular with tourists. The area has not just beaches as elsewhere (the local beach is excellent), but there is snorkelling in Sainte Rosie to the north, a botanical garden in the village which is good fun even if you are not in your seventies, the zoo, the mountain drive, obviously diving if you are in to that, and further to the south there is the forest on the volcano which makes for good hikes, and the banana museum.

The apartment has two rooms, a large bathroom, a living/kitchen, a covered outside terrace, use of the swimming pool during weekdays, and an great view overlooking a bay and the sea, offering great sunsets.

The welcome was excellent and friendly, with all supplies for a reasonable breakfast and a bottle of local Rhum. The master bedroom has a whole collection of books (albeit most of them in French).

In summary, the location and the layout of the apartment makes it a very good choice for your family holiday.

As always there are a couple of downsides. The master bedroom has a musty humid smell, requiring the airconditioning for comfort (move the books?). Both rooms offer rather limited space to leave your luggage, and perhaps the parking is a wee bit challenging to some…
We suffered a night without water (which as it turns out is arguably worse than a power blackout), and although this is apparently a common problem on the island. The owner (who is helpful and knowledgeable) had warned us in advance that this could happen, so perhaps not too much to complain about.

If I would return to Guadeloupe (not unlikely) this would be one of the first places I would think about, why search if you have found?

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
