I loved to stay in this fully equipped apartment in a central but seemingly remote area and spent most time on the terrace with the terrific view and private atmosphere when home and not sleeping. Elaine, a very kind assistant, introduced me to everything (e.g. how to lock various doors and gates). The local beach bar two steps down the street in front of the apartment was great for a light dinner or just a Carib in the evening. The beach is almost empty of people except on weekends when also young locals like to enjoy their island (unfortunately people's cars and vehicles used for delivery emit clouds of diesel exhaust that annoyed me sometimes). Anyway, the location is perfect, the bathrom was nicely decorated, everything functioning and I loved the special anti-mosquito-door and net on the window. The closest surrounding is also worth exploring. There is a secret beach on the headland of Mourne Rouge. In summary, I can warmly recommend this and thank the owners.
Booked through Airbnb after reading reviews and not disappointed. Certainly not 5 stars and the pictures advertised were accurate, but the view, location and locals were worth every penny. We will be booking next year for my BD
This was one of the most amazing travel experiences we've ever had! We stayed at the Love Shack for our first year wedding anniversary. Perfectly comfortable space for the two of us. Comfy bed with excellent a/c (and this comes from me, who is a bad sleeper!). Cooked dinner at the Shack one night, every thing we needed including cookware, utensils, and basic spices/seasonings. IGA supermarket close by. I can not say enough about the view!!! We were wowed on a daily basis sitting on the porch having breakfast! Mr. Bentley was super helpful with check in & getting us settled. We snorkeled right out on the bay and saw tons of lobsters, fish, sea eels, and even lionfish! (Go over to the left hand side of the bay, facing out toward the ocean, there are some submerged pilings about half way out that were loaded with sea life). We had several meals right down the street at the Ash's and Fish Pot food stalls in the Grand Anse Spice and Craft Market, and watched the sunsets on the beach while our dinners were being prepared. Also a shout out to D'Joint near the Carneage- great meal there. Book the Love Shack NOW- you won't be disappointed! It was great to not be in a hotel, and away from the touristy areas (but every thing is a short walk or drive away!). If you're going during turtle nesting season (think it's April-July) before you leave book a conservation tour to go see the leatherback turtles nest at night up on Levera Beach- amazing opportunity! And the tour at the Belmont Estate was really fun (good lunch buffet too). Thanks again Faith and Steve!!!
We spent five nights here after a week sailing. Such a perfect location, just steps away from the beach, and a great view of the beach from the veranda! The condo had everything we needed and more, especially loved the second shower that was outdoors. This condo is close to two beaches, stores, and restaurants...all within easy walking distance.
So happy that we found this little love shack. It's cozy, romantic and the perfect location for a honeymoon. It's literally steps away from the picturesque Morne Rouge Beach. Everything that you need is neatly packed into the shack, you don't have to leave if you don't want to. The view is incredible, We really enjoyed the hammock and the sunsets from the patio is breathtaking. It's the perfect little hideaway.
I must apologize, this review is way overdue. I must also mention that the owner is not only kind, but patient and accommodating, as we had a minor communication issue prior to my arrival which was all my fault for not checking my junk mail; but Faith was and angel and everything worked out perfectly. The hosts were most gracious.
