Thanks to the help from the owner (Gabriel), it has been a wonderful stay. All his recommendations were right on.
My husband and I felt right at home at Gabe and Judy's lovely Casita. They were always available to help answer any of our questions. The tropical gardens adorning the property and the inviting pool made coming home from the beach a welcoming pleasure. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the tropical splendor was so relaxing. The turquoise ocean and pristine private beach was just a short walk down a sandy path. Truly spectacular!
The best place to stay on the island, close to the beach and excellent restaurants close by. We love the room upstairs and the pool is a nice way to cool off. Gave and Judith help you in anyway to give you tips for restaurants and places to visit. Plus we loved the two dogs , friendly
this place was all and more. the privacy was incredible and the hospitality when needed was perfect. the beach was as remembered from 30 years ago, but more hotels on beach than then. I did find a place I went to 30 years ago at that time called LeDeck, now it is the Bay Bistro. we walked the beach for close to 4 miles and came upon it to my delight. went there many times during our stay.
Judita and Gabriel are the best hosts and I would recommend anyone to visit them. This year was a big milestone birthday gift for me thanks to my partner Joe, best gift ever.
This was our fourth trip to TCI and we love staying in Leeward. The house we previously stayed in for three visits was not available, so we found La Casita and we loved it. Judy and Gabriel could not have been more helpful.
The room is an efficiency, with a well appointed (beautiful, actually) bathroom and a little refrigerator behind a screen with a basket of dishes and glasses and a rack for silverware. There is a very large amoire by the door. The California king size bed was very comfortable, and we slept well. There is a very efficient air conditioner, but we only needed it a couple of times to cool the room down. At bedtime, we could leave the windows open and enjoy the tropical breezes. Downstairs there is a lovely covered patio with a wet bar and a large gas grill (cooked steaks one night). The pool is lovely and was nice to relax by after a day at the beach. There is a short path to the beach, which is our favorite. There is ample parking. There are two friendly dogs,Lennie and Bebe who enjoyed walking the beach with us.
Grocery shopping is no problem as Graceway Gourmet supermarket is a short drive. Also, there is a wonderful French bakery nearby. Plenty of great restaurants nearby, but Graceway has great take away meals and a wonderful selection of wines.
What else can we say? This is a wonderful place to stay.
Judy and Gabe were the most thoughtful hosts and made our stay simply wonderful. We celebrated our 30th anniversary while we were there and they were very accommodating and helpful. The walk to the beach was just as they say in the description, 3-5 minutes. Some construction was going on in between the house and the beach but honestly, the construction workers were all just as pleasant and smile-filled as everybody else we met on the island, so no problems there. The beach we walked to each day is one that is rated in the top 5 of all the things to do on the whole island : Leeward Beach. I definitely would recommend renting a car just to be able to go exploring on the island, plus there is not a grocery store of any size within walking distance. (We found Quality Food Centre & Wholesale on Leeward Highway to be relatively reasonable with grocery prices, btw.) If we are able to get back to TCI, we will stay here again, as well as recommend it to family and friends. It exceeded our expectations by a long shot.
My wife and I had a lovely vacation while staying at La Casita. 2nd floor room was clean and well kept. Judy and Gabriel were great and very accommodating. My personal favorites are the two dogs Lenny and BeBe. Always happy to great you and playful. Supplied beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and coolers for the short well marked walking path to the ocean was appreciated. Never made it into the pool but it is surrounded by beautiful lush gardens. Nice sitting area under the 2nd story deck with nice spiral staircase. All in all a great stay and would recommend to anyone looking to get away from the resorts.
