Villa Belvedere

I have narrowed down my selection to Villa Belvedere or Adamante by the Sea. Any thoughts?

1. Re: Villa Belvedere

On another board there are reviews of various villas. Here is what was said: (hope this is legal)

Belvedere: "Villa Belvedere is managed by Vacation Vistas. This villa is located on Maria Bluff, and has terrific ocean views. It is just a few minutes drive in to Cruz Bay.

The villa consists of two pods connected by a covered walkway. One pod contains two bedrooms of equal size with ocean views (one king bed, one with twins that can be pushed together). Both bedrooms have full bathrooms with connecting outdoor showers. Across the hall from these bedrooms are a laundry room and storage space

The main floor of the second pod contains an adequately equipped kitchen, living room, dining room, tv room, all with ocean views, and a half bath. The floor plan is open. One bedroom with queen bed and full indoor bath is located upstairs from the living space. This bedroom’s windows look down on to the living room (no ocean view).

There are decks with various seating arrangements with ocean views off the living room, tv room, and the two bedrooms in the separate pod.

The pool and hot tub (both with ocean views) are located below the main living level, and there are various chaise lounges for seating on the pool deck. Iguanas visit the pool area, and an outdoor cat waits on the covered walkway at night.

Belvedere is air conditioned in all areas, and has screens on all windows and doors. The villa is well maintained—we found it to be very clean and free of “critters.” The house is located in a dense neighborhood, but lush plantings make it impossible to see neighbors. The villa is well lit inside and out. The area is very quiet.

Belvedere is equipped with books, movies, board games, beach gear (including chairs), and cds. A welcome basket was provided on arrival, and there are various spices, oils, etc. in the kitchen stock. I would recommend Villa Belvedere, and we hope to rent it again on a future trip."

*A couple we met in our favorite sushi bar recently recommended it also.

Don't have any info on the other villa. Hope this hepls.

Sorry for posting twice. Thought the first one didn't go through.
