We just returned from an amazing stay on Palm Island! The villa came as advertised, as did the views...
Anne Claire was extremely responsive and helpful prior to our trip in answering questions and providing all necessary information regarding travel, the island, and the house.
There is a housekeeper available to open and close the villa, and will check in daily. She is available to prepare meals at an additional fee if of interest.
This is the first vacation where we didn't eat out once...we obtained groceries and drinking/cooking water on nearby Union Island prepared simple meals daily at the house. Selection is very limited at the local market, and groceries can be delivered (depending on day of the week) from St. Vincent.
The only thing to mention regarding the listing is that the villa is rustic in every sense of the word...which was what we happened to be looking for. If you are seeking modern amenities, you may want to search for other properties. For us, we found the escape and tranquility that we were looking for and enjoyed the charm of staying in an open villa.
Snorkeling in Tobago Cays is a must. There are several other day trips that are accessible either on Palm or Union Island.
We purchased an international plan for our U.S. based phone, but were not able to receive any service (which was not a huge problem anyhow).
Weather systems seem to move in and out quickly. We experienced quite a bit of wind, but likely helped keeping the sand flies and mosquitos away.
Our only complaint is that we didn't have more time...thanks again to Anne Claire!
Anne-Claire's house is a unique place. Imagine: the sounds of the waves wakes you up. You have a coffee in front of the see, under the coconut trees. You live barefoot. While you go for a walk, you cross the other islanders : turtles, iguana, hummingbirds...You have a tipunch on your private beach, you swim in a cristal clear water...We had a great time here, thank you Anne-Claire for this amazing experience!
