Ike Siu makes it almost too easy for you to come to this island and just let your former life melt away into sheer memories (at least until you unfortunately have to return). You are treated somewhere between a long lost cousin and an honored guest by both Ike, as well as Eva, who's way around a kitchen in enviable. There are few small pleasures equal to sitting in the covered patio in the morning with a pitcher of coffee that Ike's placed on your table, and either read a book or open your laptop with the free wifi that he offers as the "winds from the north" consistently blow a gentle breeze. Even though there are great water activities available and some great pristine crystal beaches around every corners from his place, some of my most memorable time on the island were the mornings spent on the patio.
With only 4 rooms, you're bound to feel an intimacy of the place, and if there is anything of the island that Ike cannot offer you himself, just give him one or two phone calls and consider it done (but don't be surprised when the conversations fluctuate between English, Spanish, and the local Creole - a Corn Island special)
A true host, a local son, and a world traveller with the knowledge of a visitor's needs is who you will find in Ike when you stay at his place, Vientos del Norte.
