Amazing airbnb in a gorgeous location. We were here for Christmas and though it rained the whole time, we didn’t mind because it was so nice to look out at the beautiful views from the porch. The house is nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable, and well located near the beach and wineries. This is an incredible spot

Maggie - December 2023

Absolutely loved our stay A home away from home with everything (and more) that you needed Great location, within short walking distance of restaurants, beach, stores and bus stops (for ease of getting around the island) Definitely recommend
