Stunning!

Just returned from 10 days at Into the Mystic…our first trip to our beloved Coral Bay since Irmaria. I am happy to say the villa is in pristine condition. The pictures online are completely accurate. The only difference, and Tracy was very forthcoming about this, is that the trees and plantings were hit pretty hard. But they have cleaned up and replanted and everything is looking lush and beautiful. Everything in the house is well-designed and meticulously maintained, and hot tub is pretty damn awesome. Yes, there is hurricane damage evident all around the island. You can’t escape it. But you also can’t escape an ever present feeling of the triumph of the spirit, the overpowering sense of community and the fact that nothing can diminish the breathtaking natural beauty. The beaches were all hit pretty hard but still shine as some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It was of the utmost importance to us to show our local friends that even back to back Cat 5’s can’t change the fact that Coral Bay is still and always will be our happy place.
