We felt very fortunate to have such a wonderful villa. Our dive group of 4 couples travel together once every year and this year it was The Bright Idea Villa.It was our first visit to the island and Basia, the property manager, gave us so much information in advance, it made planning a trip the piece of cake! The home is just as the pictures show, spacious and beautifully decorated. The layout is perfect for families as well as traveling couples, as everyone was able to have either a wonderful upstairs room, or pool cabana, all with their own bathrooms! The quality of linens, pillows, cushions and other décor are all wonderful and add to the ambience. We had plenty of space to hang out either together or privately. The living room is cozy with the built in couch – brilliant! – and you could always find one of us hanging out there reading or getting on the internet.Basia’s staff are all wonderful, very polite, Mi-Tuh was always checking on us and making sure we had anything we needed. We had a slight snafu with the new alarm system, and Basia went over and above in making sure we were not inconvenienced in any way (it was really no problem!). Thank you for the many evenings we had enjoying the pool, beach and bbq while staring out at the gorgeous Chalk Sound. Yes, the property is outside of town – we wanted it that way! Just make sure you have a car so you can head into town for activities (Basia recommended Grace Bay Car Rentals and they were excellent).We typically ate one meal at home and one meal out every day, either in Grace Bay, or nearby Las Brisas restaurant. We also used Flamingo Divers and felt they were our favorite dive operations ever – that is saying a lot since our group consists of very experienced divers including two instructors.No negatives here, just go and enjoy the lovely villa!
