It's a wonderful place, Villa Marie. Peter's the ideal host. He was around whenever my gf and I needed help--including one unfortunate, early morning incident involving a locked room door, a ladder, a window, and Peter's heroics--or recommendations for restaurants, car rentals, etc. And he's always friendly, which is more than I can say about some. The accommodation is special. We stayed in the brown room. It's huge. It's warm during the day and cool at night. It's cozy, and there are a huge bathroom and closet, which we both enjoyed. Above all, it was pretty well romantic, with a view of the water from the bedroom window--one morning, we awoke to a monkey sitting by that very window!--and quite quiet. True, it doesn't have some of the amenities a hotel might, but it made no difference. We found it to be more enjoyable this way, and the sheer size of the room for the cost more than made up for any missing convenience. The internet works well, so if you miss your tv, you can just stream. The sole issue I had, which wasn't much of an issue, really, was that the lighting could've been a bit better. As a reader, it was a bit difficult at night to read downstairs without keeping a central light on, which annoyed my GF sometimes. The location is pretty ideal, as well, if you're looking for a quiet place away from the hustle and noise of tourist locations. It's not even a quarter mile from a great beach with excellent snorkeling. To get to Bridgetown or Holetown, one only has to walk to the street and get public transport, making a rental car hardly necessary. It's also easy to take cabs since everybody seems to know drivers and are more than happy to share their numbers. So, before this turns into a tome, I'll say that, overall, it's excellent for someone looking for a casual, calm, and quiet place to stay. And it's a perfect place for a romantic getaway. It was perfect for us.
