While check-in is at 3 – we arrived on Wednesday around 11ish and were immediately greeted by Lee and shown around the property. Lee and her husband Jack have an assortment of rooms offering different views and options. Some have AC, some have TVs, some are large and some are small. We decided on number 5 which had Sky satellite TV and 2 bedrooms – we slept in the back bedroom overlooking the street without AC. Living in Northern Colombia (Santa Marta) we thought we could handle the heat – after around 7 or so at night there was a breeze and listening to the ocean below our room (the waves) made the night quite enjoyable.
Lee and Jack have been on the island for 8 years and are a vast resource of knowledge. If you need to know anything they are the people to ask. Jack made the breakfast – both days we had a selection of fresh fruits and had a breakfast sandwich this morning – yesterday we had French toast.
The views from the property are beautiful – the houses are built on stilts out and over the water. The back of the property is over water of maybe 2 meters deep and absolutely crystal clear. You can see all kinds of fish including rays from the back of the house it’s pier.
To be honest, I had no idea when we arrived it was a B&B. We never stayed at a B&B before and it was a pleasant surprise.
The walk into town is around 2.5km and safe. We ate at various restaurants and checked out various bars some good and cheap and others were twice as much with frozen seafood from the Pricesmart (Costco).
The location while 2.5km from town might be negative but on the positive it’s very quiet and if you don’t want to walk at taxi is only 2 dollars.
