Me and my husband are both 75+ and spent a great time at villa Brillante. The villa had everything that we could wish for and was perfectly clean. We spent hours sitting under the palapa on the wonderful terrace and were watching the sunset every evening. For us it was the ultimate place to relax, one of the most beautiful places that we have ever visited. The only negative experience was that my husband fell when he tried to get out of the sea and we had to visit a doctor who was a 15 minutes drive away. In the end it wasn't so bad because the terrace was great place to recover.

Wow, where do I even begin. My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here in January for our honeymoon and the entire experience was just divine, perfect, everything you want a honeymoon to be. The villa is just as it is photographed. The furnishings are not some cheap flea market finds, this property is well taken care of and it shows. Brigitte met us at the rental (I do recommend getting the GPS to find your way here), she gave us the quick rundown on everything. About 2 minutes after she left we were in the pool. It's a nice size plunge pool, about 15' by 20' and about 4.5 feet deep. Perfect for us. The house is secluded on both sides, you can hear a little from the neighbors but not a lot and you cannot see anything. The breeze from the ocean kept the mosquitos away, the view was beautiful. We had breakfast and lunch outside most days. It normally takes me 2-3 days to transition to vacation mode and I was there in about 2 hours. We had two small hiccups. First there are cats on the island, do not feed them. The couples that had stayed there the week before were putting out dishes of milk, when we elected not to feed them one took it upon itself to come into the kitchen while we were in the bedroom and try and claw it's way into a bag of food sitting on the counter. The second issue was the blender had been used improperly by a guest and the metal piece on the bottom was stripped out. We mentioned it to Don, it was no biggie just wanted him to be aware, but in 24 hours he came by with the owner and they dropped off a new one. There is a small lizard that hung out on the deck with us most every day, we jokingly named him Tom. Brigitte swung by on Wednesday to clean and swap out towels, she is so sweet. Gave us pointers on where to get groceries and the beaches where locals go. The unit is in a high-end community that has private security access, very secure. I felt completely safe and at ease.
This villa is really very beautiful, for both the looks and the feelings. The swimmingpool is great, the beds are super and the terras too. Lovely to have different terrasses, the kitchen had everything you might need. We loved the icecubemachine! Brigitte was very friendly and made our stay really relaxed, from start until the end.
