My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Hix Island House. We stayed in Loft 7 (top floor of Retangular) and could not have asked for a better experience. We loved the architecture, the freedom of indoor/outdoor living, the sounds and sites from our loft in all directions and being able to lay out on our deck and look up at the stars at night, just a few feet from our bed. Part of the architecture is designed for "getting away from it all" and having a very different experience that life in the big city. This is exactly the experience we wanted and received.
Hix Island House is not for everyone - it is very private, and there's no pampering (there's a new W hotel on the island for that), no tv, phones, etc. (although cell phones/blackberry's work perfectly). We enjoyed making our own breakfast from the fresh bread, eggs, etc provided each morning and taking a dip in the pool. We didn't take part in the yoga each morning, but it looked inviting for all levels. We felt safe and had enough access to hotel staff during the day hours if needed.
We'd recommend getting your own jeep or four wheel drive to check out beaches all over the island or to be able to go to town for dinner, etc.
