We absolutely loved our vacation in Coconut Bay. Claire and her family were wonderful and very helpful in welcoming our family to this spot. Here are some of the specifics you might want to know about this spot: 1. It is very quiet and has a family feel. A couple of nights we walked the 100 or so steps to the beach to watch the sunset and many of the other families were out as well. It was a cool feel unlike one you would find at a regular hotel. 2. The restaurant in the cove is great! It is basically a huge patio and the servers were wonderful. It is a western food place so it's not the spot for amazing Thai food, but everything we had there was consistently great! 3. As for the home itself, the beds are very firm. I say this because we are used to much softer mattresses and had trouble sleeping on them. If you are used to firm mattresses, you'll love them! The shower was tricky in that we had a hard time getting the water to "warm". This wasn't much of an issue since the "cold" water wasn't that cold in the warm climate, but my wife struggled with the temperature and often had to get in and get out as soon as she could because of the water. There are lots of ants around so you have to be very thorough when cleaning up after yourself in the kitchen. They kept appearing even after several attempts at deep cleaning. The Air conditioners are wonderful and cooled down the house and individual bedrooms very quickly. 4. The pool is a nice size and often times it was just our family there relaxing. Many of the other homes there have private pools so the shared one isn't that busy. We were out there every day! 5. There are a few delivery options to the home if you don't feel like walking, or are stuck with a napping child. They were fast and delicious. Did I mention Thai food is amazing?? I can't say enough about how great this trip was for us because of Claire and her family. Claire was so gracious to lend us a baby crib and some toys for our 5 month old. It made the trip possible. This was my first attempt at airbnb and because of this experience, I will always go through airbnb first.
Our arrival at night was no problem for the owners of this exceptional luxury 2 bed apartment. From the word go we were made to feel right at home in this beautiful spacious accommodation. The bedrooms with attached ensuite bathrooms are well appointed, comfortable and tastefully decorated with all of our needs anticipated. The airy living room and open plan kitchen was perfect for our group to catch up over drinks and the well equipped kitchen made it a pleasure to prepare dinner, which we enjoyed several evenings outside on the verandah. A privately owned enclave, the setting is quiet and peaceful with its very own private beach and pool in a lush tropical garden. We couldn't believe our luck that an on-premise restaurant had just opened and was the perfect spot for sun-downers, a spot of lunch or dinner. We always received such a warm welcome from their lovely staff and they even had a delivery service ! Coconut Bay couldn't be better positioned on the island. It is literally a short drive to many of the islands spectacular beaches, casual dining eateries or five star hotels. All of the other Coconut Bay guests we met were lwarm and welcoming and it is without hesitation that I recommend this superb apartment.
