Had a great family vacation and this home definitely contributed!
Was wonderful that we were met at the ferry and guided to the home, we would have for sure been lost if we had to find the place on our own- but it's easy to find once your shown once.
It's an eco home with compost toilets that worked well and runs on solar power (great that we didn't lose power with the majority of the island!). The view of Coral Bay and is remarkable, and the pool overlooking the view is also wonderful.
It's a cozy home, but definitely could afford some attention and general repairs. Nothing that was too bothersome on its own, but just things that added up and made us wonder where I rent money was going if not back into the home! Broken blinds, foundation crack (!), broken screen door, broken handles to close windows, broken filter for the pool, dull knifes in the kitchen-- mostly little things that in the end just made it feel more like home.

This house has a great view of Coral Bay, is spacious and breezy, and well-stocked with all necessities. Nice pool and outdoor area and can easily accommodate 3 couples and 4 kids. You should have 4WD for the location. Composting toilets can be improved (better seat and cover system). Some screens need to be repaired to minimize the number of bugs that attack you at nights.
"The view was worth the cost of the rental and it comfortable as"

We were welcomed at the ferry by staff who also helped us manage a snag in the jeep rental. They escorted us to the Satinwood villa, which was a good fit for two couples with bedrooms split on each side of the living area. The view down into the bay was better than watching T.V. and the breezes up the hillside were cool and refreshing. The internet was disrupted several afternoons but the staff was quick to check it out.
The villa was close to hiking trails and good beaches. We rate this as one of our best vacations. Thanks for taking good care of us before and during the week.
