The bath has a toilet, a sink in a vanity with four drawers and a double sized drawer (lots of storage), and an oversized bath tub with shower. The wall above the vanity is a mirror and the rest of the walls and floor are marble.
The kitchen has a GE Advantium microwave, a four burner stove, a large stainless sink, a dishwasher (new in 2013), an oversize refrigerator with chilled water in the door, and a granite work surface and counter top. It is fully equipped with utensils including a blender, toaster, coffee maker, and mixer. There are four stools that can be pulled up to the counter top for dining inside, but we always dine on the back balcony.
Sliding pocket doors retract to allow full views from the one end of the apartment to the other, but close to allow privacy for guests using the foldout couch in the living room.
The living room has an entertainment console for the TV with satelite service, DVD player, and VCR. There are two chairs and a coffee table in front of the foldout couch and two nightstands on either side with a bit of storage.
The balcony off the living room has views over the gardens, pool, and bar/restaurant to the Caribbean. Usually you can see Saba 26 miles out and on good days Statia (the first country to salute the new American Republic in 1776, 35 miles out). On really clear days St Kitts, the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton, 50 miles away) pops out of the ocean and very rarely Nevis (about 90 miles) is behind St Kitts. There is a table and four chairs for dining in the fresh air.
The furniture is all white-washed rattan with a colorful yellow blue pattern with matching drapes. The drapes were changed in 2004 and the upholstery was redone in 2009. All the floors are tile. We have put up island/seascape paintings to complete the caribbean theme. There are hot spots on the floor plan that will transfer you to photos of the various rooms or views.
