My fiancee and I stayed at Shanna's Cove for five days in July 2010. We stayed with his family, who had also stayed there before. His family had mentioned previously what a gem this place was and how lovely the owners Frank and Gabi were but nothing prepared us for the warm welcome and hospitality we received.
The resort is in a beautiful, peaceful and tranquil part of the island; there are just five cottages all with lovely sea views. Waking up each morning and seeing the sea from the bed was amazing. They are modern and tastefully decorated with excellent facilities. We had the resort to ourselves which was lovely, this made it an excellent choice for a family getaway.
Gabi is a fantastic cook; every night dinner was a delicious delight. We feasted on red snapper, lobster, steak, amazing greek salad and her homemade pizzas are to die for! The huge 'home cooked all you can eat' breakfast was served each morning on the restaurant balcony overlooking the sea and was a perfect start to each day. The personal service we received from Frank and Gabi made everything a real family affair. They ask YOU what YOU want to eat for dinner and what time you want to eat - can you believe it?
Frank was an attentive host, nothing was too much trouble; he went out of his way to accomodate us with boat trips, fishing trips, aqua glide and even taking us to another nearby island. They really are excellent hosts, instantly you forget you are a guest and they feel like one of the family.
Anybody thinking of visiting Cat Island, stay at Shannas Cove with Frank and Gabi; you will not be disappointed. On second thought perhaps you shouldn't, we don't want our secret getting out!
