This is an absolutely superb property in a truly excellent location. Our family of 4 (2 boys ages 17 and 13) had an incredible week exploring Deshaies and Basse-Terre with this house as our base. The house is a great size - large master suite and living room on entry level floor, and on the lower level, an adequate bedroom with en-suite (accessible from the outside to shower before entry into the house), a suitable well equipped kitchen, large/incredible outdoor living space, outdoor dining area, large deck and pool. Everything was accurately represented in all the pictures and property description, but hard to appreciate the amazing views and great character of the place until you are there. Deshaies is walkable (about 5 minutes), but windy road with not much shoulder in spots, so we drove down mostly (tons of parking). Deshaies has bakery, grocery store, pharmacy (can be very important when traveling as a family), gas station, some souvenir shops, small markets, and several restaurants. We explored the island during the day - by car, beach Grande-Anse 5 minutes, beach de la Perle 10 minutes (our favorite), beach Leroux 15-20 minutes, beach Petite Anse 20-25 minutes). One day we drove all the way to the marina Rivière-Sens for a sailing trip to Iles Des Saintes, which took about an hour and 15 minutes. In the evening, we would return and either make dinner at the house or dine in Deshaies - Kawan and La Savane (emailed both for reservations), Mahina and La Kaz du Douanier (walked up to make reservations) - highly recommended all four.
This was a fantastic vacation and it all comes back to a superb property in a fantastic location. I should also mention the ease of arrival and departure and the great and timely communication with Cannelle. If you are thinking of a trip here, you should consider this home.
