We actually stayed in December of 2011, just before the Christmas holiday. We had the place to ourselves. A highlight for the kids was when John chopped a banana tree down. The location was perfect and we spent hours at Magic Sands beach. i also snorkeled in the bay next to it - a bit tricky to enter the water but lots of good fish to see.
Now when we ask our 8 year old where he wants to live, he always says, The Sugar Shack!
