This was the vacation of a lifetime that I'd like to keep repeating over and over again. My sister made the reservation after finding Sterling House on VRBO. She said that once she saw this online there was no where else she and her husband wanted to stay. My husband and I shared the villa with them.
I awakened before the others after a wonderful night's sleep. I was breathless with amazement at the picture perfect beauty that surrounded me each morning. Then I sat on the veranda, feeling the cool ocean breeze, watching and listening to the waves slap the rocks and the shore, sipping my coffee. Before too long Wayne would come out to take their 2 little dogs (sorry can't remember their names) for their morning walk on the beach. It was my favorite time of the day.
The view is from the end of Long Bay beach. You can get some sun in a lounge chair on a grassy area that is just a few feet above the beach right in front of the villa, or walk just a few steps down and you are on the beach.
Donna helped us rent a vehicle so we were able to explore the island near and far, although far is relative because it's a tiny island.
Long Bay Resort's restaurant was a very short walk down the beach away and other good restaurants a short drive away. If you'd rather cook, the kitchen is equipped with all you need and Donna will put away the provisions that you pre-order. There are grocery stores nearby if you'd rather do your own shopping.
Snorkeling was fabulous at near-by Smuggler's Cove and shopping and more dining around the corner at Soper's Hole in West End. Another favorite place was Cane Garden Bay just a short drive away.
You will not make a mistake staying at Sterling House.
