Joan and Mickey made us very welcome on Andros and at the Seascape. After a week in Nassau, with the cruise-ships and tourist traps, we felt like we'd found the real Bahamas.
Getting there from Nassau was easy, Western Air's short flight proved reliable. Booking from home wasn't possible because of their cash-only policy, but they gave us a reference and we paid at the airport.
Our cabana was bright and airy and very clean, plenty big enough for the two of us. Sitting on the deck, watching the local lizards, hummingbirds and other wildlife was very relaxing and made for some great photos.
When all that gets too much, you must get yourself a Mickey Map and explore one of the blue-holes. The free canoes make exploring the quiet sea a doodle. It's very flat and shallow and beautifully clear, which makes for some great snorkeling. Or you can jump on the bikes and head to the inland lake and maybe spot the barracuda. While you're out, don't forget to pop in at Boston's Hot Spot for some local food and a good chat with the locals over a Kalik.
After a hard day relaxing, dinner or some drinks at the bar were always interesting. We loved the hosts stories about island life and the Bahamas.
You'll have to not mind the dogs, they're playful, but kept under control and out of the guests way must of the time. The bikes might be a bit rusty and basic, but Andros is flat and not that big, so they're just the job for getting about. If you want full service or organised trips, it's probably not the place for you, but if you want to change down a few gears, it's spot on.
