This is how you are treated on this island, like royalty. You are picked up at the dock and your baggage is loaded and unloaded to your room. You are met at the island dock and given a very short overview of all the island has to offer. We arrived on the 4:30 pm boat . We stayed in the Cedar House in the back left room and what a great view. The room was very spacious and the bed was so comfortable. Hors d'oeuvres are served at 6 pm and then supper is at 7 pm. The meals are 5 star and the chefs will accommodate if you have a different preference. You are free to explore on your own or go on guided trips. There is bird watching, surf fishing, fishing from skiffs or kayaks, swimming pool, nature walks and your own unpopulated beach. You can have a picnic lunch prepared and enjoy the whole day on the beach. I enjoyed the screened porch during a rain storm. Can not say enough about the staff and look to return again, only at a different time of year. To many mosquitos for me.
