Cora exemplifies everything that I believe visitors to the Caribbean desire in a host! She is the epitome of hospitality, as evidenced by her greeting us like family at the airport, getting us familiarized and settled into the villa (with healthy croissant sandwiches, salad, and juices provided after a long day of travel, that were greatly appreciated), and offering to and accompanying us to two local grocery stores for necessities.
We were extremely comfortable with Cora from the very beginning, and she accompanied us to a local restaurant for delicious cuisine, as well as coordinated the VIP treatment (reserved parking at a friend's wonderful tea shop) in the chaotic downtown area. She also gave us plenty of space to explore the islands on our own, but offered the assistance of several people by phone (including herself) should we have questions about the villa, the island, etc.
The villa is nothing short of phenomenal! The views were simply breathtaking from the veranda, the terrace, even by the pool! Breakfast on the veranda each day was a real treat! You are maybe one-half to two-thirds of the way up the hillside at the villa, which allows for the benefit of cooling trade winds and a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle below.
We can honestly say that we feel not only that we experienced a wonderful stay at the villa, but that we were blessed with a new friend in Cora!
