My kids (ages 7 and 10) and I were here in April 2013 and had a truly wonderful experience. The place is warm and inviting. The staff took great care to make sure we were comfortable and well cared for. My kids especially loved the owner "Auntie Cathy" who played with them at the pool and watched them occasionally so I could get a little "vacation" time. Her husband is a steel drum player who patiently taught the kids how to play a few songs on the extra pans he had for guest lessons. They offered day trip excursions to the beach where the kids actually ate shark sandwiches. We also went to see the scarlet ibis birds congregate at sunset. Our little apt. had a kitchen so we could save money eating in or have food, family style at the inn. We were shown how to get fresh fruit and vegies at the market or get just caught fish down by the docks. This was not only relaxing but truly an education, an introduction to culture different than our own. Of course, the fact that there was cable TV and free computer use, books and games made this an ideal holiday. We left feeling that we had a new extended family. The kids were not the only ones shedding a tear when we had to leave. A very special thanks to Cathy, Clyde and Baby. We miss you.
