We have stayed many times at Avonlea( yellow house) and referred both friends and family. The pictures are accurate. The staff here are great-Very personable and attentive every time. Each time we stay in a different room or suite. We prefer the rooms. The "off" season is our favorite time to come, especially when we came late fall, last year(sapphire). No crowds, 4 restaurants open and some shops. Great walks in mild weather. Now it's December. This room (emerald) is very clean, has plenty of space for two and very nice ocean views.This late in December, there are 2-3 places open to eat on the island with limited hours. Bring a cooler or shop at the grocery store. Take up Cassandra on the offer to use the kitchen here.This is a great choice for us as we like to eat healthy and get creative no matter where we travel. Today we went to the grocery store and ate at the North Lighthouse in our Jeep, on the beach. Make sure to research proper layering systems for clothing-don't miss an experience because you're too cold. We saw deer, a white owl fly from the sand and sea lions. Our favorite part is coming up...wine, appetizers and fresh barnacle cookies! Bring a great book and enjoy their fireplace-but mostly each other.
