Main House: 2 Bedrooms each with attached bathroom and King Size Tempur-pedic Bed
Club House: 3 Bedrooms each with attached bathroom and King Size Tempur-pedic Bed (the Garden Suite on the lower level of the Club House also has a full bunk bed).
Any room on property can additionally fit the Queen Framed Aero Bed and we have 2 cribs available for guests' use with advance request.
We rent to only one client at a time but can split the property to accommodate groups of 2-16 people. The Main House can be rented alone for groups up to 6 when using the Queen Aero Bed and Club House bedrooms can be added to the rental accommodating nearly 16 people if 2 of those are young children.
The kitchen of the Main House was fully remodeled in 2011 updating the counter tops to granite, appliances to state of the art and servicing or replacing all of the amenities within. The deluxe refrigerator with water and ice machine can hold a full Christmas Dinner for 20. we know because we've done it! The newly upgraded dishwasher can hold all of the dishes from the dinner and is energy efficient. The kitchen also comes with a multi-level microwave, coffee maker, blender, oven/stove top, pots, pans, serving platters and even a separate industrial grade ice machine for blended drinks! Other items like griddle, panini press and fondue pot also make the occasional rounds as family bring down their most recently purchased and gifted items. Please contact us with questions on specific utilities needed. If we don't have it we may be able to get it with enough advance notice.
The Kitchenette of the Club House comes with a half fridge/freezer, micro-wave, coffee maker and blender as well as cabinetry items for continental breakfast service and easy pool side snack preparation. It is convenient and functional for a group staying on the lower level that may prefer added privacy from the hustle and bustle of the main kitchen.
The Garden Suite offers a mini-fridge, micro-wave and coffee maker as well, allowing guests to have an even deeper level of privacy and giving adequate space for even the slowest riser to greet the day with his morning beverage in hand in the luxury of the gardens. The Banana Trees offer added comfort upon exiting the Garden Room and we have found many guests lingering by the gardens outside the door with drink in hand before checking in on the main level.
Our Pool which is a large concrete in-ground pool with cistern beneath is filtered without harsh chemicals where natural salt is added instead of chlorine to keep the fresh water clear for guests to enjoy. It is maintained weekly and a common visit from our crew can be seen early Monday mornings, though you will not likely hear them as they delicately go about their business. The pool's temperature, due to sun exposure, ranges between 78-88 degrees year round and is a perfect way to end a day at the beach or simply lounge by it all morning.
Main House - 2 Beds 2 Baths
The Main House on property is the heart of the Villa. It is where the most living takes place with its ample kitchen, lanai, porches and living areas. The Master Bedroom with private 2 sink bathroom, is located to the left of the living room upon entering. Decorated in hand carved wood, paintings of local animals and scenery the dcor is best described as Tropical Colonial Fusion that highlights a bygone era while inviting in more modern perks. The Turtle Room, located to the right upon entering the Main House, is adorned in warm tones and views face South East allowing the morning sun to lure you on island adventures. Each bedroom also has an attached bathroom, AC and WiFi. The living area is home to the only TV on property and while we do offer cable the draw is usually to the extensive Video collection on hand as well as the audio system setup to work with your iPod or iPhone.
The Main House provides a phone for local use and AT&T and Verizon clients can find a house signal in the Master Bedroom, driveway and occasionally by the pool The house WiFi reaches all but the Garden Suite room and the password will be provided during your check-in. A safe is also provided for guest use during the stay.
The owner's great loves include beach lounging, gardening, cooking, literature and movies. Kamabesu Villa features multiple amenities for these hobbies from the extensive Library of Books to the Catalogs of Music, DVDs, Games and Videos as well as all the tools a pampered chef could desire.
Movie classics such as Bridge over the River Kwai, Rear Window, The Godfather I-III, Braveheart and Moulin Rouge are just highlights in the collection. Surround sound from speakers mounted on the ceiling transforms the living room into your own viewing theater and the rustling of the Caribbean winds only enhances the experience. WiFi internet available on entire property. Have to work while on vacation? Do it at the pool!
Lush gardens with Orchids, Oleander, Hibiscus, Bougainvillea and Fan Palms border the driveway providing privacy and improving the views through the eyes and nose. Fruit trees like mango, papaya, coconut, lime and genip (a local fruit) produce seasonally on the property. Vegetable gardens grow a variety of edibles seasonally including beets, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, Swiss chard, eggplant, green beans, scallions and more.
Beach lounging should be treated like an art form, or so believe the sisters of Kamabesu. The house has beach chairs, coolers, rafts, noodles, snorkeling gear, beach towels and ice packs all which are essential for a day at the shore. The outdoor shower, located to the right of the entry, is powerful enough to scrub sandy feet clean but also soothing as it washes away the saltwater from threaded locks.
While the kitchen is complete with salad spinner to crepe pan and everything in between and the gas grill boasts a side burner, making dinner and clean up an easy feat, the welcome book also lists multiple restaurants and delivery options so even Mom can have the vacation she deserves! So whether you're making French Gourmet, grilled catch of the day or reservations, Kamabesu has everything you need.

Store your beverages and snacks in the mini-fridge and wake with a cup of coffee by the pool or under the gazebo enjoying the island breezes before heading up to the main house for breakfast.
The Club House is only available as an add on to the Kamabesu Villa and does NOT rent separately. There is never more than one rental party on property at any time. The Club House is located on the pool level, 2 stories beneath the Main House. The pathway leading to the Main House is for the private use of the guests in The Club House and Kamabesu Villa. Caretakers respect the space of the renters and are discreet in their presence using the lower driveway for parking and entry to their own apartment. Extensive plantings have been added to the property to ensure the utmost privacy while bathing by the pool, using the out-door shower, traveling between buildings and wandering the gardens. We value the security and privacy of our guests and work diligently to ensure it with regular improvements and property care.
