The view from the Luna Bella condo is breathtaking. We watched the sunrise every morning while drinking coffee out on the balcony. The coffee maker however could have been in better condition. The … More
We're so glad you enjoyed the beautiful views and sunrises from our spacious balcony. It's great that you can open up the balcony doors on both sides to get those wonderful Tradewinds inside!
I'm sorry about the chipped coffee maker and blender - I could have replaced those items immediately if you had contacted me then - instead of putting it in a review 6 months later. I can't fix something if I don't know it's broken - I'm glad it was just something minor. A vacation rental gets a lot of wear & tear and we're constantly replacing dishes, glasses & linens, etc, and we just reupholstered the living room furniture and added new artwork!
Yes, we're on top of the hill for the great views and breezes, but if you don't feel like walking down to the beach, you can always drive or take the complimentary shuttle.
As for the resort next door, equivalent views would have been much more expensive - and you would only have a cramped hotel room in a high rise building - not a spacious 1 bedroom condo with a full kitchen in a unique eco-resort!
But you had a great time and your review title says it all -

It was our pleasure to host such a wonderful family. Christian Villa is our family home in paradise. Having a family that enjoyed it as a family and treated the Villa with such respect in reference to cleanliness and care was amazing. We even had a moment to talk about the wonderful time of my parents' 25th anniversary at the Villa for they were celebrating their 25th anniversary as well. We would love to have them back again and again.
