This Place Feels Like Home
April 15, 2015
Our stay at the Purple Parrot was the best stay we have had on the island in the six years we've been coming to AMI......it just really felt like home! The house itself was very welcoming and homey, tastefully decorated in island décor. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable leather furniture, the big screen TV, the comfortable bedrooms, the screened-in lenai and the amply supplied kitchen with its nice dishes and silverware better than we have in our home! (Oh, the little things!) Most enjoyable was the private pool area where we spent much of our mornings drinking our coffee, listening to the birds. reading our novels and reflecting on just how fortunate we are to be able to spend time in a place like this. On one afternoon when we returned home we found a bald eagle perched atop a tall pine just beyond our back yard! I should add that the availability of the bikes also added to our experience as we rode them to the city pier and back nearly everyday, and my wife and I haven't ridden bikes in about 35 years....but what fun! All-in-all, we found the Purple Parrot to be a very self-contained place to stay. This was most evident by the fact that in the entire month we were there, we only visited the ocean beach about 4 times! The PP was a very relaxing alternative to Spring Break. I might also add about our experience that we entertained several of our visiting friends at the PP while we were there, and we were proud to do so. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful place we were staying in.Lastly, in fairness, I should mention that while we were there the air conditioner stopped working and the washer broke down.......any homeowner knows how these things happen. These are not experiences you want to have happen during a stay, but if they do, you do want to have someone as responsive as Sheila to address them as quickly as she did. Both items were replaced as soon as we could expect and life at the PP went on without a hitch. Short of these two occurences, this was truly a 5-star experience for us and we would highly recommend this place to anyone.
