We stayed at the Tip of the Tail Villa with a group of 10 adults. From the time we got there and were welcomed by the butler with cool towels and champagne, everything was perfect. The house is ultra modern and the property so unique. We lounged on the pool pad for hours everyday and swam in the beautiful pool several times a day.
The beds and bedding were top quality and the ocean view from all the room is unbelievable. The younger people with us enjoyed the downstairs bar which was equipped with fooseball, pool table and Margareita maker. They also loved the karaoke which wasn't heard from the upstairs rooms.
There is so much to do right on the property. We learned how to paddle board and kayak in the calm waters of Jumba sound. We feasted on steak and lobster, fajitas, tons of fruit, delicious barbecue, and beautiful breakfasts prepared by the skilled chef.
Our rooms were cleaned daily and our laundry done. The weather was perfect but on a few cooler nights we spent time around the huge outdoor electric fire pit.
The staff arranged transport to beautiful Grace Bay where we went for a day trip. There are lots of outing available, but we were truly happy just staying at the villa. We had such a great time that we have rebooked for a birthday celebration this April. Highly recommended for anyone looking to spend time at a unique and quality location.
We loved Tip of the Tail Villa ! Its unique location on a point means it is very private and has multiple water access points: dock,protected beach quiet enough for little kids, mangroves for kayaks and SUP. Everything was as described and perfect. The staff took care of every detail and the meals were so good that we didn't eat out once. Our group was 4 couples and 3 teenagers so the kids had the basement bedroom and rec room to themselves. This place is very spacious and would be great for any big group
Highlights for me were the local seafood dinners, the 360 sunrises and sunsets and spending time with friends !
Tip of the Tail is absolutely beautiful! Great staff, very friendly. Highly recommend this place!! We very much enjoyed our time here.
I just returned from a 6 night quick getaway with friends. This home is brand new and just started renting in about January of this year, so we didn't expect to have any problems. We rent homes all over the Caribbean at least 2x per year, and this has been the worst experience by far. One of the bedrooms smelled of sewage, so the maintenance people had to come work on the septic tanks while there. That left that bedroom unavailable. In one of the master bedrooms, the water from the sink was brown. It took some days for them to come out and work on the water filter system. We just used bottled water to brush just in case. The entire lower floor is a suite with a bedroom, sitting area and game room. The game room had broken pool cues and the darts were useless. There were signs of water damage or intrusion on the ceiling. The whole downstairs smelled of mold. There was actually black mold all over the ceilings in the bedroom and closets downstairs. We complained of this as well as one of our guests had planned to stay downstairs, and could not because of smell and the threat of mold exposure. The owner said he was not aware of it, but the staff made it clear that he had been made aware. A contractor came in to "fix" the problem and said we could use the room the next day. That was clearly not true as the room still had a hole in the ceiling and some signs of mold when we left. We could not use any of the downstairs the entire time we were there.
it is amazing that the house has so many problems this early on. The wood frames around the door are coming off and the wood outside has not be treated as it looks worn after 6 months of use. The pool is not heated, and the beach/lagoon is more like weird marsh area with slimy stuff that looks like sand.
The chef is not worth the money. Very basic cooking skills and over cooked everything. We ended up eating out more than expected as a result. One day, we had leftovers from lunch, went to the beach, and then came back for a late afternoon snack. The chef and butler had eaten the food that we paid for, and paid them to cook. Priceless.
I did let the owner know that we were absolutely disturbed by the condition of the house and that we felt it unfair that we did not have use of the entire house. There have been no offers of compensation to date. I'll keep you updated as to how that works out, but I would not recommend this house to anyone currently.
