“Very Good...but”

This retreat was quite nice. It was small, but very luxurious and Bianca was a good host! She attended to most (I'll explain the exception below) of our needs and was very kind. The kitchen was fully equipped, but could use some updated pots and pans. The room did not have much of an ocean view, however, just a few steps away to the shared porch, we had fantastic views. The outdoor furniture was also very nice including umbrellas. Also, the beach was a very short walk (about a minute) and was quite convenient. They provided chairs and umbrellas for the beach that was also quite nice. We used the gas grill, but it could use some repair, as it easily burned the food due to some worn out parts.

This retreat provided a certificate for free whale watching for two. This was close to a $100 value and was a great addition to our stay. Thanks for that! Also, the coffee was fabulous!

Although this was a great stay, we had one major complaint. When booking the villa, I specifically asked the owner if the fire pit worked, as this was a major reason why we booked this villa. He assured me that it did, however, when I arrived, it was not in working order. I complained about this to Bianca, however, it was blown off as if it was not a big deal and no one took any action to repair it during our entire 3-night stay. At the least, the owner should have called with an apology. This was quite disappointing, especially due to my daughter really looking forward to having discussions near the fire pit and this being one of the main reasons why we rented this villa.

With that said, the bed was very comfortable and the appliances were top notch. The only downside to the bedroom, was the fact that there was an outside light shining through the window directly above the bed. This caused the room to be lit up at night, making it difficult to sleep. When it went off, it was quite pleasant. Also, a simple but annoying issue, was that you could not run the bathtub water without water also coming from the shower. Again, no big deal, just a little annoying. We did not bring it up during our stay, but seems like a simple fix.

Overall, we really enjoyed the villa. Just wish we would not have been misinformed about the fire pit.
