Shades has 2 apartments blocks overlooking the pool and the beautiful gardens provide lots of screening and shade.The peace and tranquility here were just what we needed. Jacqui...

We only stayed at Shades for 1 day, prior to our villa being vacated. Jackie was extremely welcoming, and made us feel like old friends. Th e room was perfect for our needs, and Shades is well located, close to Sandy Lane.

This is our second visit to Shades and we are so glad we came back. We were in a different apartment (number 1 on the ground floor of the two-story block) and it was superb. Having a living room, bedroom and kitchen area is very convenient and we spent most of our 9 days on site. The apartment has pretty...
