We knew we would have an enjoyable holiday from the moment Kathy met us at the airport. It was just like meeting an old friend! We stayed in Tarpon (bungalow 3) which had the deepest and longest spa bath you could imagine - perfect for relaxing after a long day's walking. The rooms were all very spacious; the bedroom had a very comfortable queen bed; the lounge had two 2-seaters that you could really stretch out on. The kitchen area had all the appliances and equipment you could want. There was even a washing machine and clothesline which some may appreciate due to the 14 kg baggage limit on the flight over. The owners also own one of the better restaurants on the island, Humpty Mick's, where on several occasions we enjoyed food equal to anything found in the major cities. Kathy telephones around 6pm each evening to ask if you require a lift to any of the restaurants, and the restaurant provides transport home. What a great service! We found a newly opened restaurant within 5 minutes walk called Greenback Eatery that serves the freshest seafood meals at a very reasonable price. The airconditioning was also a blessing as some of the evenings were quite cool. The only drawback was the location at the top of a hill on Anderson Road. All in all, Earl's Anchorage is a wonderful place to stay.
