Also on this floor you have a bedroom with a king bed and a full bathroom. You'll spend most of your time outside on the wrap around verandas, relaxing in a hammock, swing or just lounging in a chair that overlooks the Blue Lagoon and the Caribbean Sea, The breeze is intoxicating!!! Fill the hummingbird feeder and try and count how many show up for a free meal.
The kitchen is fully equipped with up to date appliances, an island for prep work, breakfast bar, and a great conversation area.

Step out the door from either the master bedroom or main bathroom onto the wrap around veranda and relax by the infinity edge pool looking out at the blue waters. The washer and dryer are located on this floor. All bedrooms are equipped with air conditioners and the main floor is central air, however with the breezes, you'll rarely need to use the A/C, but it is a great comfort on those few breeze-less days!
Find your way through the gardens to the overlook bench or step down to the private beach and dock where you can swim, kayak, snorkel, or fish. An outside shower is there to wash the saltwater off. There is a large sundeck where you can either sun bath or stargaze, looking up at night, you can't help but see the Milky Way.
Call for a water taxi and Martin might be the one to pick you up at the dock to show you around. Want to go diving? East End Divers will pick you up at the dock too and take you to the most magnificent dive sites. Experience the drop off as never before and try a drift dive. No experience, No problem, they are authorized certified trainers.
