Here's what our guests have to say about the Lower Level:

  "My wife and I stayed at Stonegarden Cottage, in the lower level for a week. The cottage came as advertised and met my expectations based on the reviews and the pictures. Everything was professionally handled by the owner and the manager both of whom were responsive to our questions and needs. Though, we did not have many needs as everything we needed was provided including a grill with new utensils, a kitchen with everything we needed to cook, and a well appointed bed and bathroom that included a nice shower. They also had good towels and chairs for the beach.
The cottage was perfect for two people. There are two patio areas and a walking path through the gardens. It felt very private and there was a nice breeze so air conditioning was not needed.
The best thing though were the views! What a great site to see every morning and again when we came home later in the day. Stunning! The location above Coral Bay was ideal for us. I would return for another visit and recommend Stonegarden to any couple wanting to stay on the quiet side of the island."

The view from the Lower Level of Stonegarden Cottage is one of the best on the island.  You will see the sky change to soft pastel pink at dusk, and watch the silver moon rise over the harbor.
