We wanted a quiet place on the ocean in a tropical setting and that is what we got. Caryn and Brian were excellent hosts, very considerate and kind. If you are expecting 5 star accomodations then stay somewhere else and pay the price. We enjoyed the simple setting, the constant ocean breeze and the ocean at our doorstep. When they advertise you are "on the beach", you really are so there will be salt spray and salty air. Salt corrodes metal so expect that.
We particularly enjoyed the fresh fish at the market Caryn recommended. A pan fry lunch every day with fish fresh from the ocean. The Saturday market is a delight, with interesting foods available throughout the week at the same location. Delightful island meal and show at the staircase Thursday night- ask Caryn what to do and where to go.
Some of the reviews are not kind, so I should point out that besides taking care of the cottages, Caryn helps a sick friend run their store. She is intense and talks sort of fast, but she is the kind of person I would like as a friend. She does enough work for 3 people every day, but always finds time to help out if you need it.
