The team here is giving camping and outdoor life a whole new adventure the camp site is great. The food trees will feed your natural experience and satisfy your soul. The dining experience will also delight your palate. And the family and staff is kind, supportive and great with tours. Don't kiss them on your Nature Island Experience. Plenty of Tranquility and Sacred Bathing Here!

Thanks Gwen. We wished we would have been able to do more had it not been for Erika, however there is always another time.
See you on Island in the near future.
Enjoy

We stopped at Rodney's for lunch after visiting Champagne Reef and Scott's Head and it was a beautiful, quiet retreat with wonderful food.

Man, where do I begin? Coming from the U.S. where you'll lucky to see weeds with blooming flowers on them, my mind was completely blown when I stepped into this lush, Eden-like place. When you walk in, you're instantly struck by the vibrant colors and the density of the plants. You can tell a great amount of love and effort has been put into the place, yet is captures that feeling of unspoiled nature! My wife and I stayed in the Big banana campground (super romantic and rustic!), but guests can stay in the new luxury cottages, too--I'll have to check them out next time. The shower/washroom facilities are shared, but they're so secluded and the property is so large that you feel like you've got everything to yourself even if it's full of guests! Plus, Bevin and his team keep everything so clean! The outdoor shower is a must, with a mango tree shading you overhead! The food/drink at Kanawa restaurant and bar are amazing, the service great. Bevin knows the whole island up and down and gives amazing tours. If you want a change of pace from the usual overpriced resort, you MUST stay here and experience The Nature Island in one of the most authentic ways possible!

Two people, Bevin and his sister, run this place. It is a garden well cared for, with lots of love and effort. In this garden they rent individual tents with airbeds. Nice bar and restaurant. They offer good food in the evening at reasonable price. Free Wifi. Under 35 US-Dollar per night which I still felt is a bit high. But look how much work and love they put in the garden. You can also bring your own tent. Restroom and shower is clean. Very nice and relaxed hosts and guests, I loved the mix. This year (2015) they will build some bungalows for their guests.

Take a walk down to Soufriere: All the people in the village are very nice and welcoming… constantly asking to buy them a drink or give a few dollars, can you say no?
