My friends and I had a fabulous time at the Water's Edge! Everyone was impressed with the house and the incredible VIEW. The kitchen is laid out a little funny, but it's spacious and stocked with everything we needed. Even jugs of water.
My only disappointment was that the private chef-prepared (Chef Maria) dinner I had scheduled for my birthday was canceled at the last minute. We were told she was sick and forgot about us! We had confirmed with the caretaker Edvin that morning that she was coming and what time. We all came home from a day at the Secret Beach and started showering and getting ready, thinking dinner would be ready around 6, but she never showed! Luckily Edvin saved the day and ordered pizza delivery for us "on the house". We were very grateful to him for that. We could've gone to any number of restaurants of course, but we were all starving and wanted to eat right away. Plus, he knew how disappointed we were and wanted to make up for that.
Also, we picked a week that had abnormally windy weather, causing rough sea and currents, which made snorkeling difficult but still fun. Unfortunately, all scuba trips were cancelled, so another birthday disappointment for me! The whole reason I booked this trip was to dive for my 50th bday. However, there's no one to blame but Mother Nature. And, I still had a fantastic time.
The property manager arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, and our golf carts for the week were waiting for us at the house. Definitely need those to get around! Although there are restaurants within walking distance too. Rojo is most definitely recommended! Get the conch fritters!!
We all loved the pool, the private pier/palapa and large veranda. Had a great time at Rum Dog, Truck Stop, Bamboo Fence Swing Bar (Secret Beach) and the most amazing dinner at Aji...just to name a few.
