Perfect, Quiet Oceanfront condo in Hamilton Cove

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend in this lovely, well appointed condo overlooking the crystal blue sea this past weekend. We chose this particular unit because of it's views and close proximity to the street (very few stairs). It did not disappoint. It was very clean with lovely decor that I was told was new as of October 2015. There were five of us and it was a perfect size. On one colder evening we warmed ourselves by the fireplace which was very cozy. The condo enjoys direct sun in the morning and it is lovely to have you breakfast on the balcony while overlooking the sea. The unit was very quiet and we had the pool all to ourselves one day. I have no substantial complaints other than while cooking we could not find any oven mitts but we easily located all other utensils and flatware needed for a dinner in. The water pressure was not as strong in the shower as we were all accustomed to but it was fine and we all adjusted. It is lovely to have all doors and windows open and hear / feel the ocean breezes and lazily watch the passing boats and kayakers. Highly recommend this unit!

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the island in th past month. What an amazing place to relax and enjoy the scenery, the view from the conde is breathtaking #milliondollarview. Love the detail and taste It was decorated with and how easy it was to drive around the island from Hamilton Cove Villa since the rental includes a golf cart, which is super convenient. There are also plenty of water sports available downtown. My stayed was such a delight! 100% satisfied.

What a way to spend some time off! The condo was beautifully decorated, lots of space and an amazing view. Breakfast on the balcony over the water is a great way to start the day. The pool, gym and beach keep you at the villa but the golf cart that is included makes it easy to hit all the tourist attractions, the main beach, sightseeing and the restaurants.
