We are back from our annual girls trip to beautiful Harbour Island. Once again, we had a spectacular time.....with one exception. We were booked to stay at The Ocean View Club, aka Pip's Place....after spotting it on last year's visit. From the moment of our arrival, we were made to feel uncomfortable and certainly unwelcome! Pip, the women who owns & runs the place, was the most pretentious, rude and downright obnoxiuos person i have ever encountered in all of my travels. As soon as we arrived to the dock, we bumped into friends we had met the previous year who offered to take us on a short boat ride.Why not! We made a quick call to Pip's to inform them that we would be checking in a bit later. After the ride, we returned to Valentine's for a cocktail. We arrived to Pip's around 6pm only to find that they had given our cottage away (where the 3 of could stay together) and put us in 2 separate rooms. When we questioned this, we were rudely abmonished for our late arrival....with Pip actually saying ...... " I have NEVER received a phone call from the staff at Valentines about my guests. And I don't know how YOU even found out about MY property..." She went on to say that she ran a particular find of establishment that catered to a 'certain' clientele....which we were not! I could keep going but will refrain.
The next day when a friend stopped by, at our request, who was a local no less, he was told that he was not welcome on the property & asked to leave!
Needless to say, this was the last straw, and we packed up our bags and found a beautiful little cottage in town that was just perfect! (Briland Breeze) We joke now that she did us a favor!
Just an FYI for those of you whose blood does not run blue!!!!
