Rebecca – Massachusetts Winter 2007

Villa de Palma

“Our vacation was extraordinary.

First of all – your beautiful, spacious, comfortable home. From the lovely terra cotta floors to the tile details to the generously stocked kitchen and refrigerator – it was wonderful. We came in thirsty and tired and immediately got refreshed and were off and running within an hour. It was so kind of you to let us have access to your supply closet. It was such a treat not to have to run out to the grocery immediately and be able to find a snack for everyone. We replenished it with great joy and thanks.

Secondly – the setting is a vacationer’s paradise. We had a early dinner at the Cerromar timeshares the first day in the open air restaurant right off of the beach. What an introduction to this beautiful island. Our college kids checked out the resort and decided it was a definite for the next day. So, late morning Thursday they saunter over to the beach with their $25 each to be told ‘No – no need to pay – come and enjoy’ – which they did every day. Endless hours on the lazy river, battles on the courts (beach volleyball, pool volleyball), daily comparisons of the best hot tub experience, and of course the beautiful beach and the warm waters of the Caribbean. It couldn’t have been better. (Dan and I proffered that since three of the four college students were ‘bathing beauties’ – and the person taking the money a male – they were given the VIP treatment.)

Thirdly – the Villa itself – the wonderful porch; the fountain with the constant soothing sound of water; the pool; the pool house with ping pong; the putting green and gorgeous tennis courts – all used daily by the Raibley Bryden entourage.

And all of this….and we were seemingly the only ones there – hardly ever saw anyone except the grounds people and security. What a great place – we LOVED it.

Fourthly – Hector – what a gem of a person. He was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the Villa as well as a wonderful day in the rain forest. He was kind, caring and very willing to share his local knowledge and information with all of our curious guests. Thanks so much for putting us in contact with him. He loves you guys. He said he has never met such sweet, nice people. We all concurred.

Thank you is so inadequate to express what a wonderful seven days we had. We are rested, relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you for a life time of wonderful memories.”
