Testimonial: Overlooking Paradise
Updated: Aug 14
Andante is beautifully located at the top of Iguana Rd/Hawk Hill which overlooks 2 beautiful bays. It's a short ride (about 10 min) from Cruz Bay and only about 5 min from the local grocery. We took a trip as 2 couples and stayed for a week in this lovely villa. The gorgeous entry is lined with tropical plants and beautiful stone, well lit for evening/night returns.
The kitchen is well stocked with anything you may need for your stay. The outside decks get a great breeze to allow you to relax a little longer in the island sun and soak up the unobstructed views. On the second tier deck the pool has shaded areas for the loungers and the night hot tub under the stars is an experience that shouldn't be missed. The owners provide 2 portable bluetooth speakers, pool towels, and floats for a great hang by the pool after a day at the beach or you can sneak down to the quiet lower level for a shaded nap in the hammock that's big enough for 2.
The ONLY thing we would change is renting a jeep next time, Marilyn recommended it but we love the taxi experience so much we opted out. She was right in her recommendation and we would have been able to explore more had we had our own vehicle. It's also a must as the dumpsters are not "across the street", they're across from the grocery as you head into town.
The property owners are so kind and knowledgeable and have really thought of everything. The local property management company they use is also committed to providing a great vacation with the right touch of service without too much during your stay. We notified them of a concern about a jet in the hot tub around 7pm and a repair person was there in less than 24 hours to fix it!
Read the book and read it again if you stay as we found more interesting info about halfway through, the fans, the laundry, the games and so much more. The skylights allow so much beautiful sunlight in the home during the day we rarely used any lights and found ourselves turning off switches that weren't on because it was so well lit.
