My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Leeward Isle. The loft apartment was very well equipped, tastefully decorated, cosy and comfortable. It's location on the beautiful Thesen Island marina is also perfect and close to many of the best restaurants and attractions.

The room was very clean, neat and tidy. Very comfortable, just a pity that there was no view.
