Three couples stayed here last week and had a great time. I was wondering if I'd be wishing we'd stayed ON Grace Bay Beach instead but I never felt that way. On the contrary, I think that Leeward Beach is just as beautiful and the fact that it is not even remotely crowded was such a bonus. We spent time on a few beaches and the only one I'd say beat Leeward Beach was Taylor Bay-recommend if you have the time but keep in mind it's a smaller, quieter beach that is very family friendly.
Barefoot Palms is very well stocked and the house is so clean. The pool is wonderful and fun to seating outside. The property management company is amazing. We emailed a couple of times for very minor things and the response from Simone was instant. Just a note, the power and water went out for a short time period (power once, water twice). Not an issue at all, it was back on within an hour, however if we'd known we wouldn't have called the first time after 20 minutes or so. I am guessing it's just intermittent outages from service on the island. Anyway, can't say enough good things about the house, the owner, the management company.
We ate out a few nights and our favorite restaurant was Coyaba. It's close to the house, the atmosphere is beautiful, but it was really the food that stood out the most. Amazing. Coco Bistro was excellent and Mango Reef has a view that can't be beat.
If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful, getaway location with pool/beach, privacy, safety etc., this is the place. Definitely rent a car.
