About the neighbourhood
Very rural and off of Route 107 with a short, easy drive to dead end road. Only 2 houses on this road and one occupied year round of which you don't see or hear. All views are National Park, quiet, 7 minute walk to beaches, with fabulous snorkeling and diving, 10-15 minutewalk to Saltpond Bay and more hiking trails. Restaurant and groceries 10 minute drive to Coral Bay.
Getting around
A car is recommended but if you are on a budget the end of the bus line is at Saltpond approximately a10-15 minute walk. I will meet you on your arrival day at the ferry dock, take you grocery shopping and drop you at the cottage. Then I suggest renting a car for the last few days of your trip to explore the island and make your departure day easier. If you don't want to rent a car be aware the buses aren't always reliable and don't run on the weekends in the off season. Also, cabs from this area of the island are $30/per person to go to and from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay.
