Beautiful! The ocean was practically at your doorstep. The place was extremely quiet. The bed and pillows were very firm, which was great for my back. The place is very well maintained with nice furnishings, crystal glasses and italian granite counters. The housekeeper came every day during the week, and was mindful of our schedule. After the first couple of days she came later in the morning. I saw the comment about her going through guests' things. I couldn't imagine her doing that, but she does move your items around as she cleans (how would she clean otherwise?). The location was nice. Very nice restaurants were only minutes away by car, but it wasn't too close to all the bustle. Although the owner, Peter, was out of town, he made sure we were taken care of by Angela (our housekeeper) and Dave (our driver to and from the airport). We just have acouple of suggestions for improvement. 1) Since the owner was out of town, there was no welcome basket with food. This would have been fine, had I known, but we arrived late in the night and had no food (or car, which was our fault) the next morning. 2) The air conditioning in the LR worked great, but the AC in the bedroom barely worked at all. 3) There were some bugs (just three that I saw) after acouple of days that we were there. Within minutes of me telling Angela this, she phoned the owner and the issue was taken care of promptly. It is, after all, a tropical place.
Overall, we had a positive experience with Rosalie. During our stay the owner contacted me via e-mail apologizing about the lack of a welcome basket, which I thought was quite nice. He seemed very conscientious and the place is, overall, maintained very well.
