This is among the most pleasant, clean, and airy apartments/self-catering units we have stayed at in the Caribbean. The two bedroom apartment had a veranda overlooking the well tended grounds with the ocean in the distance. The kitchenette and all utensils were immaculate. The bath towels were changed frequently and there were ample clothes hangers (which is not always so at other places we've stayed). There is a washing machine available and clothes lines with plenty of pegs.
When we arrived there was a bowl of bananas and a papaya on the table and a bottle of fresh coconut water in the fridge.
Sue and Ray are great hosts. Sue will pick up essential groceries for you before your arrival. She meets all first time visitors at the airport. Ray refilled our coconut water.
A car is a definite asset for touring the island but one could use the mini-buses to get to and from Basseterre.
