Private heaven - the name itself describes best what we experienced, and that was from the very beginning of the communication / pick-up until the drop-off.
After picking us up with his truck, we went to the grocery and he supported us and provided us with insights what to buy, what is still on the island, which beer :-) - and for the fruits, we even went to a small local shop as the quality is just better there. He then put everything on the boat and you drive for 20 min (took a bit longer as we stopped for Dolphins!) and then went to our private heaven for 4 nights. Gigi and his buddy were so helpful in carrying our stuff up there and he then showed us around, explained everything, super friendly and helpful.
And 5 minutes later, the island was ours. There are 2 bedrooms (we only used the king bed room, super comfy!), a big bathroom even with rain shower, and a fully equipped kitchen (big oven, huge fridge, nice bbq grill outside) and a big living room. All the amenities were in great conditions, everything working (even WiFi!!!!!) but we spent of course the majority of the time outside. The terrace is huge, still nicely protected by the roof and there is also this big deck, partially with a thatched roof. Nice reef in front of the deck, great for snorkeling and using the kayaks.
Gigi even went for us to Seahorse divers in Placencia and he arranged with the captain, that we were picked up at 6am in front of the deck (with a 100 yard swim to the diving boat), and they also dropped us of again. This is just 1 of 100 things, Gigi organized and took care for us while we were staying there (e.g. the neighbor came buy with 3 freshly caught fish and when asking about the price, he just said: "it's free, Gigi gave me 2 chicken yesterday" - that was the best and freshest fish ever!)
At the end of our stay, Gigi even chauffeured us to our next stop (Naia) which is 20 min away from Placencia harbor - of course with no extra cost.
So if you look for something special with an excellent host with also a great sense for details and if you don't want to abandon all amenities and want to have your "one house-one island", private heaven is a must!!!!!!
At the end, we just can say: Thank you, thank you, thank you Gigi for making this experience one of a kind! It was our private heaven for 5 days!
