Worried about construction next door to house rented

We booked a villa for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Some of you on this forum have kindly recommended great restaurants which I have now booked in advance. Thank you!

I just heard some very bad news though that threatens to ruin the holiday. Apparently - and no one involved in renting us the villa has told us anything about this - there is a great deal of construction going on right next door at present. I only heard about it from my sister reading an upset Trip advisor review - the renters were so upset they moved out of the house last month. Now I'm terribly concerned my birthday gift to my husband will be ruined by this. Is there any way we can find out the status and invasiveness of the construction project? I'm wondering about Google maps or if maybe one of you happens to be driving by and could snap a photo? I will approach the renter - our 50% balance is due in 4 days. This seems the right time to find out how bad the situation is before we fork over another $20,000. I'd kind of like to get a sense of how bad the situation is before I approach the renter so I can have a strategy in mind. Thank you for any suggestions!

Hopefully someone on island can go take a look, too bad husby off island. Did you read the review and the response. That's a tough one.

Yes I did see them. That's how I heard about it. I feel the owner/renter should have informed the renters in advance so they knew what they were getting into.

Why not ask the obvious of the previous renter; at what stage of building was it at when they were there. ground breaking, foundation pouring, or roofing, or other? That was 4 months ago, it will be 6 months in December when you get there. It may only be landscaping or interior work being done by the time you get there.

RENEE, Villa Bella Sur Mer is at the east end of Coconut Road near Turtle Cove. Turn off Lower Bight Road onto Bridge Street at Green Bean. Go to the end of Bridge and turn right onto Coconut. Last villa on the left.
