Indeed, ."Swaying Palms Studio" is a very apt name for this little slice of paradise. From the secluded porch of our efficiency, we luxuriated in a panoramic view of palms, birds, fruits, ocean views and yes, delicious balmy ocean breezes. Best of all - no tourists, no traffic jams, no hassle on this part of the island. Exactly the way a vacation in paradise is meant to be.
Our one room hideaway was completely functional with a comfortable king size bed, small kitchen area, room to eat and lots of storage area for clothes, cameras, etc. Hosts Anjali and Ken are attentive to detail and happy to help with directions, supplies, recommendations and even wireless internet access. My husband and I would (and hope to) return in a minute. Well, a minute's probably a bit unrealistic, but you get the idea.
Cell phone service is spotty, so don't expect to be in constant touch with the mainland. Just escape!
