My wife and I stayed in the Master Suite at Atlantis House for five nights in early October. I can’t say enough nice things about the place.
Our first indication that we were in for something special was the courtesy call we received from Kayla ensuring we had the address, directions, etc. We were greeted by both Steve and Kayla (and Nemo, the canine good will ambassador) when we arrived. They took the time to find out what our plans were and gave us recommendations for places to eat, attractions to see, and overall advice on how to make the most of our stay.
Then on to the Master Suite where we were shown all of the amenities…and there are many. I can honestly say that I’ve never felt as comfortable and at home while on vacation before. The room is quiet, intimate and beautifully decorated. The bathroom is amazing…like having your own personal spa. The Jacuzzi tub was a nice way to end each day.
Steve & Kayla (our hosts) made sure we had everything we needed. They were friendly and open, and were happy to chat and share their experiences living in Paradise. We took their recommendations on attractions and several restaurants. Their advice was spot on.
I was fortunate to be able to book a fishing trip on Steve’s boat. Coming from the west coast, I was interested in seeing how my Atlantic brethren do it. Steve was a gracious and patient teacher. Under his guidance I hooked many, lost many (my fault), landed some, and kept a few. It was great fun, and a memory I won’t soon forget.
The capper to our trip was the dinner we had with Steve and Kayla. This was gourmet cooking to be sure (and all locally caught). Lobster appetizers and a black grouper main course followed up by an amazing, home made, key lime pie. The food, drink and conversation made for a fantastic evening.
We will definitely be back!
