I just got back from my second stay at Half Moon Villa. It is at such a wonderful location: up on the hill for sea breeze (no bugs), a quick drive to town (we rented a Suzuki Carry Van), a walk from the golf course and Marriott (for when you want to be pampered) and right near the unspoiled beauty of the peninsula.
Things I'll do again next time:
Spratnet - $20 US for a HUGE!!! fire roasted lobster.
Volcano Hike - nice challenge...get a guide though.
Turtle Beach - quiet beach bar at the end of the peninsula. They let us feed the monkeys and massive pig.
Blue Anchor - nice bar to hang out with Ross students.
CSR Coconut Rum - my new favorite. (mix it in the blender with ice, limeade and passion fruit or whatever you find at the market.)
Bambu's - Best Pinacoladas I have EVER had!!! (went back four times.)
Beach on end of peninsula - can't remember the name but it is calm and empty.
Snorkeling off of White House Point - AWESOME!!! There are even cannons and a huge wreck within a stones throw from the shore.
Food: I really like the "Guava Cheese" and local backed goods at the supermarket.
Shopping: I'll go back to Island Glass in Basseterre, and Caribelle Batik up on a cool plantation (first plantation, on the first island in the Western Hemisphere to free their slaves - 30 or so years before the US.)
Thanks again for the wonderful experience. I am looking forward to coming again some day. - Windsor, CT
