We recently stayed at this apartment which was nice. The kids loved the pool. The apartment clean. An FYI- take pictures of anything that might be damaged or broken upon arrival. Let the home owner know when you get there so you don't get charged from your security deposit for damages that were already at the apartment. She says it's new- it's not exactly new and it's not exactly old. It's worn from use to put it best. We go on vacation many times a year and usually rent a house or condo away from the crowds so we can spend time with our kids versus everyone else on the beach. This was a very quiet remote place close to town but not busy with people which was nice. Some of the accusations we received from the home owner were ridiculous and I was very disappointed. As I mentioned we go on vacations a lot and rent every time and have never gotten such feedback as we did from this particular homeowner. We understand it's her vacation home and we respected it but just be warned to take pictures. It will be your word against hers and it's hard to go back and take pictures or to have proof once you are already home. I debated taking pictures but now wish I would have.
This condo on the west bay is just perfect if you want a quiet place away from 7 mile beach but close enough to go there when you want. Our condo was clean and smelled great as we entered. It had all the basics in the kitchen as well as the bathrooms. We had plenty of towels to use and even a cooler was in the second bedroom which we used for the beach! Very helpful so glad it was there to use. The pool was just right outside our patio door. We had a first floor unit which was awesome. The owners did a great job providing a binder with very helpful information for the area and the condo itself. It came in handy several times during our stay. Although there is a shore diving area right on the property we didn't use it. The water was a little rough for us. We did our snorkeling down the road at cemetery beach, spotts beach, and down by Macabuca which is directly behind the cracked conch. You can drive or if you prefer it is within walking distance.
The dive spot is called sun divers it's all together. The turtle farm and dolphin cove are just before it. This part of the island was perfect for what we wanted to do. We would stay here again!

The condo is very comfortable, nice, and airy, and pleasant to live in. A nice pool is in front of the condo with a partial view of the ocean obscured with another building more close to the ocean. The continuous rough water waves and edgy high coast-reef makes this place a dangerous one for even well trained athletes.
A very good beach is within 5 min drive plus 5 min walk - the Cemetery Beach - which is pleasant for swimming and snorkeling too. Clean warm water, great sand, and a lot of shades to find under the trees.
A good supermarket is on the main road between the condo and the Cemetery Beach (2-3 min drive). There are many other beaches down the same West Bay road, and at many other locations. But after visiting them, you'll find the Cemetery Beach that is not far from the condo being the best. If you rent a car - it's a very good place to stay.
