I traveled with a group of friends and stayed at the Beachcomber, which is next door to Hobbie's Hideaway. The place was great. Wonderful patio looking out to the ocean. Rooms were minimalist, but that was exactly what we were looking for. Located in Sandy Bay, we were away from the hustle and bustle of West End and Coxen Hole, but close enough to take Microbuses into either town. We were able to snorkel right off the beach from the house.
We spent alot of our time next door at the Sunshine Cafe and Bar. John and Sue are the most gracious hosts. They were attentive to all our needs and were full of great information as far as things to do. Kathy cooks wonderful food and Dinora is a fabulous bartender. By the end of the week, we had eaten almost everything the menu had to offer...and it was all great and great prices too. Don't miss the Friday Night All-You-Can-Eat Fish and Shrimp.
Of course, like any vacation, we were all sad to leave...but I think even more so because John and Sue (and the rowdy gang of regulars) quickly became friends!
