All of the reviews agree, and for good reason. Simon and Francine are wonderful and accommodating hosts. The one bedroom apartment is roomy and comfortable. While it is not located right on the beach, it is within walking distance. You can also rent bicycles from Mark at All Round Adventures, as we did. It is a great way to get around, and puts many of the local sight within easy reach of Blue Skies.
We enjoyed and appreciated the welcome grocery package, which allowed us to relax after arriving, rather than having to go straight to the grocery store. We took advantage of Simon's orientation tour and found it very informative. Simon also showed us a quiet place to snorkel, which was fantastic.
It was hot during our stay so they got us a fan to use in the living room, which was greatly appreciated. We cooked breakfast each day in the well equipped kitchen, before venturing out and enjoying the area. We also took advantage of the grill for a few lunches and dinners, though there were too many great restaurant options nearby to eat in too often.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay with easy access to the touristy areas, while still remaining relatively authentic, this is your place!
