Hibiscus is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The villa is in the rear of the owners home and is air conditioned with a complete kitchen and washer and dryer. The villa is spotless. Immediately outside the villa is a small swimming pool. There is also a picnic table and barbecue and bar, all covered to provide shade. The wife is most accommodating and even drove out to find me when I was lost driving in the area.
The pool and partially covered deck made a great living room. We used the gas grill and the kitchen to prepare a number of meals and enjoyed eating outside. In a quiet residential area near beaches and tennis court, we felt completely at home. The owners are caring, quick to respond, but never intrusive.
This is a place for couples who need seclusion. The owners are great, kind caring people. For a single like myself, it was a great place to unwind.. Otherwise, it is not located next to much but a beach and a few restaurants that I didn't even get to try because of the incliment weather. A car is a must for this place, as the buses don't run around here like they should, especially on Sundays and taxis charge what they want. Maybe due to the bad weather or the fact that I didn't take the little garbage I had out on a daily basis, bugs were an issue. Come here when it's drier weather. Never been here before, so not used to these things.
HIBISCUS was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation, The area was quiet and the walls were high enough. The ultimate couple's treat,
Inae was very helpful and her husband gave us great direction for fun times out.
Best for last, the pool was beautiful. The filter didn't seem to be strong enough though.
But we swam in it nearly every one of the days we stayed on the West Coral side of the island.
Suggestions - my husband and I are tall, 'a higher porcelain throne' would have been so nice.
Hope to be back soon
I am delighted to extend my gratitude to Inae & her husband for a very relaxing stay. This property is very near to the Coral Harbor shopping center which has a small food store and some take out options which made staying here very convenient. We had a car so we were able to navigate from the airport easily and get around to visiting the beach and friends. I also want to highlight that I was able to cook Xmas eve dinner as the kitchen had all the basic tools to prepare food. So just as others have pointed out, this place is away from the busy downtown areas near the Wharf, Fish Fry etc. and is really a place to slow down, kick back, relax and enjoy the nice weather.
My husband and I stayed here for 10 days and we really enjoyed ourselves! The owners were very nice and friendly! The house was just the right size for the two of us and everything we needed was on site.the house was very clean.
Our only complaints were that the pool could of been cleaned better, and we didn't realize that the owners home was on the property.
If you like peace and quiet this is the place for you! But if u want to be near the action this place is a little bit of a drive from downtown so maybe not the place for you.
I would definitely recommend this villa!

We stayed at the Hibiscus for one night before catching a flight. Even though it was a short stay, I would definitely recommend this house. After a few days in cat island and having stayed other places beforehand, it was extremely handy having the washing machine and dryer in the house so we could have clean clothes for the next leg of our journey.
The house itself is very cute, clean and the bed was super comfy!
Special thanks to Inae for being so lovely and helpful. She dropped off a bag with some bottles of water and soft drinks for us, and then arranged a taxi for the following morning to get us to the airport. When they couldn't get one by the morning on short notice, her husband drove us to the airport. They were very nice and thoughtful people, as are most Bahamians!
