OK - so the real deal is: Island House is amazing. The staff is friendly to a point where you'd think even as a first-time houseguest that you were long-lost relatives. The food was good (I won't go so far as some of the other reviewers - but it was good) and the facility was CLEAN. We had a 2BR apartment that was DELIGHTFUL - great appointments, clean (did I mention CLEAN). The beds were phenominal. The other guests were a great cross-section of the real world. It wasn't just twinks, it wasn't just daddies - it was everything - and we all created a very cool environment that most of us would agree should have come back home to our "real" communities. If you've ever done an AIDS ride and marveled at how well people got along - it's just like that, except you're not exhausted.
Come ready to have fun, drink a little, (ok, a lot in some cases) and laugh a lot. I'll be back for SURE.
