Just got back from a multi-island tour of the Bahamas by private plane. We spent one night at this wonderful hotel. The owners (Marty & Angie) were superb. Great rooms, great cocktails at the pool overlooking the ocean and Marty is one hell of a chef! One of our party had a birthday and Angie baked chocolate chip cupcakes that were out of this world! The beach was devine and saw no other folks on the several mile long beach all day. You have to go to shell beach a couple of miles away. The hotel has a nice golf cart you can use for free or you can walk it if you like a leasurely stroll. The beach is to die for! At low tide you can walk out on a sand back at least 1/4 mile out and collect shells, see starfish, live conch and a host of other animal life. We've been to many islands in the Bahamas but if you are looking for that special get away place this is it. We may go back in June and have contacted the seaplane company in Ft Lauderdale listed in a previous posting. Even though many of us are pilots none of us have experienced the adventure of seaplane travel.
