My wife and I spent an amazing two weeks at Bogles Roundhouse in late March-early April 2011. It was all we had hoped for, and more. The cottages are simple but quite adequate. We were in the Mango which is closest to the water and has a full view of the small, well kept lawn and most important of the ocean which is just a 30 second walk down a flight of concrete stairs. At the bottom of the stairs is a very nice beach which we usually had to ourselves. The water was a bit rough during our stay but the crashing waves put us to sleep at night and were fun to play in during the day. Each evening we were treated to yet another breathtaking sunset which we watched from the cottage porch. Cottages contain everything you need and include a nice little kitchen, fully stocked with cooking utensiles. On the nights when the restaurnat was closed, we cooked here and ate on the porch under the stars.
Life is very simple at the Roundhouse and definately not for those looking for a nightlife other than what is provided by fire flies and a sky full of stars accompanied by the cheeps of ghecos. We had rented a jeep for our stay but seldom used it other than to go to town for provisions and yet another bottle of rum. Why leave when what you have is already perfect. Our days fell into a natural rhythum of walking the beach, floating in the water, snoozing and of course eating.
Speaking of eating, the best part of Bogles Roundhouse is the food at the Roundhouse. Roxanne (owner) is an amazing award winning chef and each meal was better than the last. She and her staff take huge pride in what they do. On one memorable night, we had freshly caught seared yellow fin tuna served over scalloped potatoes with all the trimmings. It was easily the best meal I have ever eaten and it will never be forgotten. The Roundhouse itself is an amazing structure that oozes ambiance and deserves a visit just to experience it.
We especially enjoyed the company of the 2 huge black labs that belong to the property. Tom and Albert spent many happy hours with us on the beach or just lounging on the cool tile floors of the cottage and deck during the heat of the day.
Everyone was so nice and so helpful. Accomodation was perfect for our needs. The food was to die for and there wasn't a casino or golf course to be found on the island. For our tastes it was as close to heaven as you can get and we can't wait to go back again.
