We stayed in apartment number 6 for 4 nights for a quick getaway; this is a studio apartment with a kitchenette, futon, new flatscreen tv with cable, free wifi, dinette. We read about the snorkeling off the dock being great, but had no idea what we were in for. It was beyond all expectations. If you go out towards the buoys, there's a drop off of about 50 feet of crystal clear water. We saw a hawksbill turtle (juvenile), sting rays, tarpon, squid, flounder, a gigantic parrot fish (really gigantic) and a multitude of other stunning fish. If you swim to the right, you'll encounter the wreck of the Gamma protruding out of the water. That was fantastic.
Rose and Dudley are superb. They showed us the 1 bedroom which is more updated, with a full kitchen and pull out couch.
Thank you to a previous TA who suggesting bringing beach towels. The supermarket Kirk is in walking distance, and offers a better selection than Whole Foods. Pricey though. But we made use of the hot and cold salad bars. My husband enjoyed the brisket, jerk chicken and bbq pork. This saved us a lot of money. Eating out at the restaurants is very expensive (and we're from NYC!). George Town is also in walking distance. We took a taxi one day to Cemetery Beach just to check it out. Otherwise we plopped ourselves right in the water every day out off the dock, quite happily.
A couple of minor things, our unit was close to the road and you will hear thumping car radios from cars stopped at the stop light half a block away. Also the linens/towels and bed could use an update. The bed was still comfortable and we slept well. Shower was hot and good pressure. Apartment is cleaned daily.
Will definitely be back!
