Myself, my husband and our two adult daughters spent 5 days here and had one of those vacations that are importantly wonderful. This was the first time we had traveled instead of celebrating the holidays at home and this was definitely the place to which to go . (It's hard not to use cliches when writing but i'm going to plow ahead and use them anyway). The rooms (and beds) were very comfortable and warmly furnished. The view from our windows was spectacular and each morning we woke up to a different kind of weather. (each day was a kind of weather montage - from hot sun to tropical downpour - never lasting long enough to be anything but exhilarating.) Bill and Laurie are wonderfully welcoming hosts and extremely knowledgeble about both the Island, its culture, and had lots of suggestions about things to do and places to see. (they also seemed to be very astute at suggesting things that very much matched our family's interests-) My suggestion for active people is to do anything Shane has to offer. We went on a walk through the rainforest up to waterfalls that was completely exhilerating and challenging enough so that we (the older generation) could feel very proud of ourselves. We also went on bikes to a beach that was great as well. Since I somehow missed the Breakfast part of the Inn's description, the elegantly served repast came as a complete and wonderful surprise that first morning.The breakfasts Laurie makes are completely out of this world - and more importantly- wildly superior to any breakfast that I have ever made for my family.
So clearly I recommend this place highly - we're looking forward to going back.
