We had a wonderful, relaxing and luxurious honeymoon at The Boathouse. We were tucked away in a very peaceful and picturesque part of the island, but were close enough to town and the airport that the Boathouse was very easy to access. It was an absolute pleasure cooking on the beach barbecue, launching the kayaks from our private beach, and wiling away the hours reading in the hammock and chaises longues. Marie was gorgeous -...

Great sausages and fish available from local supermarket. Meat very reasonably priced. We had no desire to venture out to restaurants The...

We had a wonderful time in the boathouse. You were right we didn’t want to leave, food became an issue, we tried not eating but hunger finally motivated us to leave. We learned several local customs, like how one asked permission to cross their land and what happens when the local children stand on the fence line make loud noises and wave to you. Then how to get them to go home. Marie and Albert...
