how close is it to Mission Point?
20 April 2017|
Response from GHKellie | Property representative |
Woods is not near Mission Point at a;;. We are located more toward the center of the island near the airport and Stonecliff.
How do customers hail the taxi for The Woods, and where does this taxi pick up? Are strollers (folded up) permitted on the taxi?
