Loved it!! stayed late June 2013. West Bay is a must, has the best beach and snorkeling that I have ever experienced (comparing it to florida and hawaii). My wife and I stayed in the treehouse cabana. It was awesome, but there are some need-to-know items before booking.
-it's in a mango tree!!
-42 steps up a spiral staircase
-may not feel private due to lack of curtains or an indoor shower, but it is fairly private as it would be very hard for someone to see in since you are above everyone else
-not handicap accessible
-definitely for couples, there is just 1 queen bed and it is tight quarters
-creeks and sways a little when the wind picks up (because you are in a tree!)
-they still manage to fit a private flushing toilet, a water cooler with clean filtered refreshing water, a small fridge, microwave, coffeepot, and a hammock!
-i have heard someone complain that it was near the "parking lot". it really isn't. it is maybe 150 ft to the sea, and when you are in the treehouse you look out over the caribbean! for about $60/nt after tax, it is hard to imagine being any closer to the ocean. i was very happy with the location.
-you definitely sacrifice practicality for novelty. there is no AC (but a nice fan), no hot water, no TV. but everyone who walks by the treehouse looks up in amazement and wants to know who is staying there. it was a once in a lifetime experience for my wife and i and we will always remember it!
-about 1 minute walk to the water, and maybe 5-10 minutes walking to the spot where the really good snorkeling starts
-it's in a mango tree!!
we were of course on an early schedule since you get up with the sun in this place around 5am. our first morning we went on top of the treehouse and watched the calm sea and some of the birds, and next thing we knew we heard what sounded like parrots squawking, then 2 of them flew right overhead and landed in a tree next to us!
also want to give a shout out to housekeeping. our poor lady had to come up and down those stairs to clean and change our towels everyday and she was so nice! we tried to give her a break when we could :)
in summary i would recommend it for an adventurous couple. not for 3 or more. the other places around at Fosters seemed nice but i didnt see inside any of them, i would certainly consider staying at Fosters again. thank you!
