There are a few things that should be mentioned by the owner that are not in the description.
You need a jeep as the road is very steep and not paved. I rented a Suzuki Jimmy and that was perfect.
Getting there: When you get to Rodney Bay, go past the Rodney Bay Mall and the Rodney Bay Marina and look for the fire station on the right side. Just past the fire station is the police station. Turn right there and then stay to the right at the first fork in the road. There are signs to direct you from there.
There is no hot water.
I would only suggest renting #1, #5, or #6. The other rooms are very, very small and #4 does not have an attached bathroom. There are no safes in the rooms either. As a single woman, I would have liked a little more security, as the curtains didn't completely cover the windows in #3 which is the room I stayed in. The bed was very, very short in #3, so if you are taller than 5ft, it will be too small.
The view is amazing and it is nice and quiet. Overall it was a very nice stay and the island is beautiful.
