I stayed in 'Coral Cottage - Yellow' just as it was ready for rental, it was very new. The north coastal location is superb - a rural setting, about 40 minutes drive from George Town, but not far from Rum Point, the beautiful tranquil Royal Botanic Gardens, local supermarkets and restaurants, and right on the unspoilt coastline. There are two identical cottages, set side-by-side, with separate driveways and pools. All of the garden is newly planted and immature, but when it has all grown up, it will be a beautiful paradise, and the two properties will be very private. Inside there are two spacious en-suite bedrooms upstairs, with super comfortable luxury mattresses - one a king and one a queen. Ample storage cupboards and a washer dryer on the landing. The downstairs queen bedroom is compact, but has the advantage of sliders onto the pool deck. The light, airy living space comprises a sitting area with TV on the wall, a dining area and a kitchen - the whole room flows brilliantly: even washing up is a pleasure when staring straight out to sea! The views of the ocean over the gorgeous infinity pool are mesmerising - make sure to be settled down in the pool deck rockers, ready for sunset, when the sky and light can be spectacular! At every moment the sea view changes, through a pallet of blues and greens, sparkling and inviting. You can snorkel straight from the beach, but bring reef shoes, or flippers, which are essential, the coral can cut! One of the best attractions of these properties is the side gardens, which double the living space and are accessed through immense sliders, from the living rooms. Protected and mosquito netted, you can enjoy al fresco dining in an exotic garden, or sit, at peace, in the rockers with your coffee (or something stronger!) - once the garden has grown up it will be a veritable paradise! I thoroughly recommend either of these wonderful properties, on your own, or better still, book both with another family or relatives!
We had a wonderful stay at BOTH Coral Cottage Yellow and Coral Cottage Pink. We were two families travelling together and the duplex was absolutely perfect for our two families.. Lots of room for everyone to gather. Kids played in one pool, adults stayed around the other! Views were stunning and the snorkeling was excellent. We would recommend Coral Cottages to anyone with a large family and to two families travelling together.
