Hi - hope you all can help me out. I am trying to make a decision on renting a condo or villa (1 bedroom at least, or 2 or whatever) in St. James this summer. I love the idea of a villa, and fell in love with two of them online (Alhambra and Bali Hai), but I can't see to find everything I need in one place. Hoping to pay no more than $425US per day - even better if it's less (it's low season when I plan to go).
One of the biggest challenges is that I MUST have relaible internet access (for my job). After that, I'm looking for beachfront (or no more than 3 minute stroll), king bed, near tennis, maid service, updated kitchen and bathroom, great lanai or patio - views! - pool - and (hangs head) TV in master bedroom so I can watch Wimbledon in air conditioned comfort (!) I am hoping to pay not more than $425US per day.
Maybe I should just go to a condo like Villas on the Beach or Glitter Bay, but so far, I can't find one that has internet and everything else that looks really nice. Deep down, I really want to do the villa, but I'm nervous about it. And the one I really love (Alhambra, with its OWN tennis court) doesn't have internet it seems.
Has anyone out there stayed at one of the ones I mentioned? Or maybe know a really good agent who will walk me through this process? (Sometimes it's worse when you know EXACTLY what you want - better to just stay loose, I know....)
Anyway, thanks in advance for any help!
