5/5 Excellent

Wonderful experience!
We loved the ease of getting around the island. Great beaches just minutes away. Lots of wildlife. The pool was fantastic place to relax after fantastic shelling at the beach. We are already talking about next time!!!

5/5 Excellent

Island Gem
We enjoyed our time at O Sole Mio. The property was exactly as pictured. Great location on the island with the beach just a few minute bike ride from the house. The screened in back porch was a favorite place to enjoy all the birds, ghekos, iguanas and turtles that are found in the natural setting of the backyard. Having access to the pool was also nice .This rental has the potential to be a real gem if the property owners just put a little more into it- there was nothing wrong that spoiled our stay , but attention to some minor details (broken ceiling fan on the back porch, replacing the carpet in the back bedroom for example) would serve them well . The beds are also extremely uncomfortable with no box springs ,so the mattresses are very firm . We prefer staying in a rental house instead of a condo and overall this property did not disappoint.

4/5 Good

Spacious home
Great home for family, very spacious, outdoors backyard could not enjoy, too many iguanas. Also, not enough ports for lap tops and computers.

2/5 Poor

Vacation for relatives wedding
The house was as appeared in images at first glance. Although they definitely need to put some money back into this place in order to keep it running properly. The toilets were continually running even causing one to leak out the top of the toilet until we noticed. We had to continue to fix this issue for the extent of our stay. Then on saturday of our trip all electricity stop working in both bathrooms when someone in both bathrooms across the house from each other were blowing drying our hair. We reached out to the rental agent who said she would try and get someone out to fix this but we never saw anyone come out and the issue was not fixed by the time we left tuesday. The lamp in our bedrooms bulb went out also leaving us with no light in our bedroom from sunday to tuesday. Overall the location was nice to reach beaches, watch wild life in the backyard, and swim in the pool. The pool was perfectly located in front of the house and the home was just a short walk away from reasturants and bars. The house did comfortably fit three couples and the kitchen was large and supplied with all cooking and eating needs utensils wise. Make sure u stock up on spices , detergents, soaps, trash bags ect if you are planning an extended stay because you are only supplied tiny amounts of the needed essentials. Quick warning you do hear machinery and pumps running when out on the lanai as well as catch an occasional bad odor in the air from the water treatment plan behind the home. Overall this could be a nice vacation spot if the proper fixes were made to the home.

5/5 Excellent
