Amazing location, perfect for adults and the best beach on the island for kids
My wife and I have been to the island 5 other times staying at various locations in Governor's Harbor, Harbour Island and Gregory Town. Moonflower was terrific, we went with our three kids ages 1-5 and my wife's best friend and her husband and 8 month old. The location was our favorite, steps to the beach, 3 minute walk to the end of the driveway for gumbay smash drinks and yummy food at Daddy Joe's which is basically part of the house based on how close it is and they treat you like family. We worked with the homeowner ahead of time and she assisted so when we arrived the house was stocked with food, drinks and cocktails we requested.
Their are a few houses along the beach but it was super quite, the neighbor next to Moonflower was great, every day he and his wife would come down at sunset for a swim and we would share a few drinks watching the best sunsets we have ever experienced.
The house was much larger then what the pictures appear, the TV/Great room is huge with views to the water and ever room and bathroom was the perfect size and had all of the necessities to allow us to enjoy our vacation. They even had two kayaks, surfboard and other fun beach/water toys setup when we arrived. All of our kids loved it, the water is astonishing as it's knee deep 100 yards from the beach which makes it very safe for kids to play in all day. We said multiple times, we basically had a 1/2 oversized pool to play in every day.
I would highly recommend Moonflower to anyone looking for a getaway and to enjoy the island life. The house if plenty large for 2-3 families, couples etc.
The location is the best
- 20 minute drive to ELH airport (we did a day trip to Harbour Island)
- 3 minute walk to a bar/rest. Daddy Joes'
-10 min drive to Ocean Tally - this was the best hidden gem we found, a new small hotel that has an amazing small rest. and incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean
-5 minute drive to Gregory Town (we purchased a 15lb grouper right off the boat ramp)
3- min drive to Laughing Lizard, great lunch spot
-5 minute walk to the Queen's Bath and a short ride to
