We had a wonderful vacation in Guadaloupe. The house was small, but clean, comfortable, well arranged and the grounds were beautiful. There is a spectacular view of the ocean from the front patio and the back patio opens on a beautiful garden where we saw lots of birds including humming birds, sugar birds and parrots. A short but steep walk takes you down to a beautiful cove with a sandy beach which is excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Also at the bottom of the road are two nice restaurants, one open just for lunch while the other opens early and serves fresh baked goods, baguettes, food, and excellent coffee. The hosts were wonderful and extremely helpful. Even though they didn’t speak much English, and we spoke little French, they were masters with google translate and we were able to communicate well and had long conversations. Several times we needed help; rental car troubles and problems making reservations for things to do and without their help it would have been much more difficult to take care of things.
