Thank you Frank & Gabi for sharing your piece of Heaven with us. We are not sure when we first "tried" to get a reservation at Shanna's Cove (or even how we found it on TripAdvisor). We say tried, because Shanna's Cove STAYS full. We booked our vacation in February for November 5-12, 2014 when they just get back from... More

Well, second time just as great as the first, will be going back a third time in 2015. Same great food, same great service, great beaches, everything. Frank and Gabbi were the same gracious and fun hosts as last time. Met another group of really nice people that were guests as well as locals. Had a fun time playing some... More

Fantastic beaches, food, and more are included in my review of Shannas Cove. The 5 two-person bungalows sit above miles of walkable sand beaches. Clear, shallow water offers swimming, wading, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, plus Frank can take you diving on his boat or arrange for fishing--bone, reef, or trolling. Frank, Gabi, and their staff are all friendly and helpful. The... More

You may run into Dennis Haysbert while you're there. Frank and Gabbi are really fun to hang out with. You basically have a private beach, and the water is amazing. Pack a cooler for you're trip and bring some kaliks down to the beach.

We spent 3 nights w/ my wife and everything was perfect. A restful and peaceful place where Gabi and Frank do their best for their guests. Beautiful beach, very nice restaurant... So nice ! If you want to spend some time in Cat Island... just go to Shannas Cove.

There are many nice beaches all over the world --and the beach at Shanna's Cove is one of the best. With its kilometres of secluded white sands and stunningly clear blue ocean, Shanna's Cove is a hit based on the beach alone. But what really makes this resort unique are Gabby and Frank, the owners. They are wonderful! I have... More

My dad and I stayed at Shannas Cove for about a week in August and we had a wonderful trip. The beaches were beautiful and the water was crystal clear. There isn't much to see when you are snorkeling, but if you go farther out on a boat there are some nice reefs not too far away. We loved how... More

Arriving at Cat Island, slightly bog eyed and jet lagged, Frank picked us up and immediately we felt at ease and comfortable. On arriving at the resort we were made to feel at home and welcome - Frank and Gabi are excellent hosts, friendly, a great sense of humour and helpful, working extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure that...

I have been to many places in the Caribbean and many islands, but nothing compares to Shannas Cove. Frank and his wife Gabby are great hosts and real nice/cool people. This is not like other island experiences.. It lacks tourists and touristy things to do. It is a true island experience. Quiet, secluded, tranquil... if you are looking for peace,... More

We visited this beautiful property in July 2012 (a little late in my review) Everything in all of the great reviews are true. We had the bungalow closest to the water, wonderful view. The beach and water are wonderful, crystal clear blue calm water. Rarely was there anyone else on the beach with us. The restaurant and food was great,... More
