Absolutely fantastic place. My husband and I just came back from a week's stay at Shanna's. It was our first time to the Bahamas and certainly won't be our last. Frank and Gabi and all the employees are all hospitable. The bungalow was very clean and spacious. The bed could be better, but I found it easy to sleep with the relaxing sounds of the crashing waves. Relaxing on the beach can be tiring business! Speaking of the beaches, I have never seen cleaner sand and water. You can see the ocean floor far out into the water. The most people we saw on the mile+ beach was 8, but most days we were the only ones. We canoed one day. Hiked to the Atlantic side one day (where you really won't see another soul). Snorkeled (now that was tiring work!) We left the beach one day and rented a car to see the rest of the island. The only attraction is the Hermitage, which is much smaller in real life but worth the drive. You can see the Caribbean and Atlantic at the same time from up there. If stopping for a meal somewhere, be sure to call ahead as many places are closed or just not cooking that day. You won't want to skip too many meals at Shannas though. The breakfast is fantastic (get them to make you pancakes, so light and fluffy). Everything at lunch is great, but the pizzas, oh the pizzas, especially the white shrimp pizza. Be advised that one is more than enough for two people. The dinner is five star all the way. We did have fish 3 nights of our stay. My husband doesn't like fish. He took a cautious first bite and proceeded to inhale it. He's going to be spoiled now. Such a fresh clean taste. Other nights included veal tenderloin, duck breast, and even a pig roast. They will make substitutions for picky eaters though.The drinks are great, but they make them strong. Very strong.
