We had a great time we did a lot of fishing and relaxing on the houseboat. It was like camping out but with comfort. The property manager, Bob, went out of his way to make sure we had a good time.
Really Great Get away!

We had a great time. The island is as beautiful as its photos. The houseboat is a little "rustic," but it is hard to keep something in good shape with the weather. One lesson we learned was to take supplies to the island/boat - as we got "stuck" on the mainland for 2 days when the weather/seas got rough and the small boat wasn't safe to travel in.
Overall, the trip was a wonderful get-a-way - close enough to civilization to run in for lunch, but far enough away to feel alone. The snorkling was great at the island, too!
Pam and the staff were wonderful - very helpful and worked with us closely to be sure we had everything planned that was necessary. We do plan to go again!
