My place is close to restaurants and dining, the beach, family-friendly activities, nightlife, and public transport. You’ll love my place because of the location, the people, the ambiance, the outdoors space, and the neighborhood. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.
Discounts with a local spa and restaurant, beach stuff provided (inc. snorkel/masks and lots more).
Living area is open plan (typical for the island) kitchen/dining/lounge, leads to the screened patio. Wall to wall windows allows for a great view throughout the living area.
Master bedroom door opens onto a beach/sea view. Another door to the patio and then literally 3 steps to the world famous Seven Mile Beach.
The beach is a private beach (down to the high water mark) and the location is relatively inaccessible to the public, so very few people on the beach. Loungers, umbrellas provided.
We have a shade tree right by the apartment, great to sit beneath and enjoy the gentle sound of the surf while staying out of the intense sun.
There is a beautiful tiny cove, protecting a natural shallow area, perfect for the young and cautious. The beach is mainly sand with a few areas of rocks to give some easy snorkelling adventures without having to swim more than a few yards (or even just walk along with your head in the water).
Walking along the beach affords the opportunity to watch a variety of local birdlife during the appropriate seasons (Frigate birds, pelicans, egrets, herons, sandpipers, bananaquits and more). Several of the shade trees on the beach are seagrape trees and the fruit is edible (slightly salty/sweet).
The resort has a great pool, figure 8 with a bridge across, plus a jacuzzi. A gazebo and/or umbrellas with lounge chairs affords for a relaxing time. Lots of well grassed areas for the young (and young at heart) to play on.
BBQ close to hand so you can enjoy the outdoor life in your shorts and hot weather clothes all night long all through the year.
For vacations over the Xmas/New Year, to maximise our occupancy during the peak season we prefer bookings that cover one week incorporating Xmas and a second week incorporating New Year. Xmas up to 29th Dec, New Year from 27th Dec onwards.
You have access to 600 feet of private beach. Large open grassed areas to play on, or just to squeeze the cool grass beneath your toes. BBQ nearby to enjoy the evenings with. Tennis court for resident/guest use if you want to stretch out a little. (There is a World Gym close to hand, with reasonable daily/weekly rates).
Interaction with guests
Our property manager is happy to help where he can (rarely off island) and if he is not available, he can find someone who can help in most situations (flying to the moon is a little too much, but let us know for anything a bit easier :) ). The humour comes for free.
Other things to note
We are always looking at improving your experience. let us know if there is something you want and we shall see what we can do.
We have a waterproof camera (down to 50', so great for snorkelling, not for scuba) that we lend out when available (no charge, just take care of it).
We also offer discounts at our spa (Touch of Thai, (URL HIDDEN) - 20%) and our restaurant (Thai Orchid, (URL HIDDEN) - 10%). Great way to add to the luxury of your vacation.
Snorkelling - check out Testudos blog. Lots of locations with descriptions. Our personal favourite is Smith Cove. Some great coral outcrops very close to the surface (arms length deep). Keep swimming south and there are small areas of coral for the next several hundred yards - a long way to swim and it's all close to the rocky shoreline and shallow.
For the owners legal purposes it should be noted that the cost of the apartment is based on a non-inclusive basis. That is, the limitations of the listing site prevent the breakdown of the overall cost in a non-inclusive manner as intended by the owner.
Nothing else to pay on the above quote however. This is just clarification for the tax purposes.
The presented rate should properly be broken down into the following categories: -
Nightly rental rate - seasonal
Utilities/operating costs and resort fee ($55pn),
General maintenance daily/short term (5%),
Listing site service charge to owner (3%)
Property management service charge (20%)
Statutory Government Tax on nightly rental (13%)
There is also the service charge to the guest as applied by the listing site.
We offer respect and we like it when respect is returned. If we can help in any way, ask and we shall do our best for you.
No pets, no smoking (extra cleaning charges would be made). A couple of extra guests for entertaining are fine, but the house limit is 10 people (no extra guests over night).

I love to cook and was a professional pastry chef for a top chef. I also love to paint and I am fortunate that my paintings have decorated many a home on the islands. Several restaurants and business also sport my frescoes all across their walls. I have many other passions in my life and providing top service is one of them.
