Lovely villa in a quiet location
Six of us enjoyed our stay at the Caribbean Colors in October 2016. The house is located in a quiet area, and roughly less than ten minutes from town. It is a great location, close to beach, grocery, car rental. Interior and exterior furniture is very appealing; the kids loved the pool, and I enjoyed the hot tub at night. Huge deck and great outdoor furniture made for some fun times poolside. The kitchen was awesome for our group cooking parties. We walked a couple of times to Nettle Bay beach, but later on took the car and headed for Mullet and the quiet beaches of the French Lowlands. There is more to explore on the island. We plan to be back and definitely will stay again at the Colors. Sonia was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for a wonderful time!
