She is an absolute Gem
met us at ferry dock
so Blanca was a huge help to us getting our essentials
From the moment I met her at the ferry dock where she had a taxi waiting to take us "home" to the moment I said goodbye at the house where she'd come with a taxi to take me to the airport at 7
Plus Blanca met us at the airport and Bodden
It's just far enough off the main strip that it's quiet but still within easy walking/cycling distance Vicki and Blanca
so it felt secluded but close enough to easily get to dive shops and restaurants
The island has great food stores bakeries and a few good restaurants
Aeroporto including a prompt transport into town (with a quick stop at the local grocery store (Bush's) for a few items) before delivery to the Coral Ridge House and what a house
The villa is a nice compromise of being out in the quieter Trade Winds subdivision but only a 10 min walk to the start of the "town" area
