Private view

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing, very calm 3 days at Upper James Bay in this generously sized apartment looking across a shady garden to the beach and sea beyond.

A very private and quiet apartment, sitting well back from the road, so the only sounds are those of the waves and the insects/frogs at night, the flat is generally well equipped and all rooms are spacious.

The verandah occupies the full width of the apartment allowing plenty of space for four to eat breakfast in comfort or to relax in easy chairs with a drink while watching the sun set ... or at the other end there's the hammock...

And the beach, which we only shared with the one or two families occupying other apartments in James Bay (and then only from time to time), is beautiful, sandy, shaded if you want it, and with plenty to see for these who snorkel - including the occasional turtle if you're lucky.

We would recommend renting a car as the nearest places to shop or eat are quite a walk.

The property and surrounding scenery is spectacular

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at James Bay. It was relaxing and the scenery is beautiful. One suggestion would be to have information within the condo of local telephone numbers , recommended restaurants , taxi companies etc.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.
