Sea Change Villas - Honeymoon Heaven

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
My wife actually cried when we left the Sea Change Villas after the first part of our Honeymoon. We absolutely loved Villa #2! It is completely private, very well layed out with king bed, double shower, full kitchen, satellite TV, private pool, and great staff with John, Nina, and Karen!! We were at Sea Change over Christmas 2011. All pictures that you will see are really representative of the quality of the location. Right on the beach of the lagoon. Great property. No where else can compare!
