That includes Karakter, Mary's boon and El Zafiro. They can be enjoyed right on the beach. The building itself was finished in 2014. It was courageously designed and built by doctor who owned the property. The building is so well made that even with hurricane Irma we had minimal damage, although all the roof of our neighbors ended up on this building. We had lots of decorative damages but luckily nothing major. Simpson Bay Area is becoming very popular. There are few reasons why: There are only 2 beaches on this island that are great for long relaxing walks, and this is one of them. People do not need a car here to be able to get to places and good restaurants. They do not feel isolated here. And also because Simpson Bay is a nice combination of touristic and local culture. It used to be a fisherman's village and it still holds some of that charm. This combination makes this area safer as well as less crowded.

Thank you Chidera for your beautiful review and your kind words. Also your feedback on the cleaning service is highly appreciated because this is clearly not the way we want to have it done. It was a great pleasure having you as guests. Thank you.
