Typical bedroom

Vacation Rental Property

Great Expectations has 4 spacious air-conditioned bedrooms each with a King bed (convertible to 2 twins) located in 2 pavilions separated by a Great Room with a large living room, gourmet kitchen, and indoor and outdoor dining areas. A nearby 2 bedroom air-conditioned Guest House with its own living room and kitchen, occupied by the owners who serve as the property managers when on island, is also available at certain times of the year for rent for larger groups. There is also a 7th bedroom, The Club Room, available.

All the openings (sliding doors, windows and transoms) are fully-screened. Italian tile adorns the floors and kitchen and bathroom counters. Native stone work laced with local coral and shells frames the Villa entrance and is used around the site to highlight the lush landscaping of beautiful, colored bougainvillea, hibiscus, croton, wild orchids and, and our favorite, frangipani. A number of significant palm trees as well as banana trees complement the beauty of the site. A variety of birds frequent the immediate area which, depending upon the season, may include magnificent pelicans, frigate birds, soaring osprey, nesting hawks, great blue herons, the largest hummingbirds you have ever seen and our popular native bird, the little, but gorgeous, banaquit. The Villa itself is furnished with custom-made teak furniture and carvings from Bali and, we think, very tastefully decorated with original paintings, sculptures, sconces and even a native mural which was written-up in the local papers. Great Expectations does not pretend to be fancy, just very, very special!
