We just returned from our 1st anniversary at the Westender. This is the second time we have visited, and it was just as spectacular as the 1st. The food is fresh from the garden, colorful plants and animals surround, and the people are warm and welcoming.
We recommend going out to the water at night to watch the stars. With the waves crashing and the meteors shooting across, it is a very romantic experience.
While we were there, a yoga group was visiting and they invited us to join their class by the waves. A visiting artist brought jewelry made from rare seeds. We were invited to go to Half Moon beach by the owner and his lovely family. We are thinking about bringing our children next time (and all of our friends) after we learned about the very affordable nanny service available. In addition, we were treated to one of the best massages either of us have ever had by the waterside (ask for Tara).
This is the kind of place that a person falls in love with and keeps coming back. If you are looking for something a little more genuine, the Westender is for you.
