The house is beautiful. It has an excellent view and the accommodations are very comfortable. We did not have to go out at all. We spent our days just relaxing by the pool or the terrace, reading, sunbathing or just gazing out to the view of the sea and the neighboring islands. We would definitely repeat our visit again and again.
The Reed Family Reunion 2010 ... once we and our baggage all got there ... was a huge success. Storms, re-routings, delays on the way were overcome by the warm waters and brilliant sunsets of Devers Bay. We have frequently rented smaller places on this corner of the island, but Sunset Beach was perfect for our whole family (6 adults, 4 children). We especially liked the "big main room" -- ideal for meals and other togetherness times. The pool was better than we imagined. Someone was always in it. Having upper and lower decks kept us spread out ... but nearby for "own thing" doings. Around the point at Devers Bay is still some of the best snorkeling on the island ... and, even though we share this very private beach with a half-dozen other households, Sunset Beach was up, out of the way, and secluded. Thanks for really good wi-fi connections (but,not good cell phone reception), lots of tv channels, an unable-to-figure-out stereo system for CD's (next time we'll be sure to ask how), attractive bedrooms (except for the upper king which is probably on the way to being redecorated), neat outdoor showers for most of the individual bathrooms, a magnificent outdoor gas grill, more than enough kitchen appliances, dishware, pots, and pans, plenty of chaise lounges, pool floats, beach chairs, coolers, and -- of course -- all the iguanas.
We have now stayed in approximately 8 Villas and Sunset Beach did not disappoint. The views are incredible and our kids loved the fact that we had our own beach right in front of the house. The layout of the home was very conducive to a large group, or two families. The only negative I can think of was that neither of our cell phones had any reception while on the property. A small inconvenience for such a fabulous home!
We can't think of one single complaint, everything was perfect, starting with the greeting we received upon arrival on St. Johns. The villa was stocked as we had requested, everything inside was clean and fresh, including flowers in the vases. It looked exactly as we had anticipated from the pictures. The rooms worked great for our party of 7. The resident iguana, Claude, was charming and very entertaining. WE will certainly return to Sunset Beach in the future! All of my children thought it would be the perfect villa to own! Thank you for your through service and accessibility during our before and during our stay.
