This was the first time I ever stayed in a gay male only guesthouse, and I had a blast. The place was immaculate, and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and more than happy to provide tips on what to see and do.
The single rooms are small, but clean and very, very comfortable. The Island House has its own brand of CD's to pop in the radio, and I found the music very relaxing.
There is a good, albeit small, gym with sauna and steamroom. There are two jacuzzis on the premises as well as a large swimming pool.
The food is quite good and if a bit pricey, but more than offset by the convenience. No review would be complete without a comment on the video room...suffice to say no one who stays at the Island House need go to bed frustrated.
Once you go, you will have to go back at least two or three times a year just to re-charge among your own kind.
