Whenever I read these reviews, I realize that every individual alive experiences places and situations differently, and we're probably all "right." That said, however, I feel I must step up to say that There Are No Two People Nicer Than John And Winnie Murdock, and Shining Sails is never "dirty", or "dingy". It is certainly true that when they are busy running their businesses they are not chatty, and they tend to talk more with people they know than with people they don't know. Don't we all? Having spent a fair amount of time on the island, I have experienced the aforementioned aloofness among residents, but after a while you realize that they're working while you're vacationing, and they're just getting it done amidst constant distractions. I find MYSELF not wanting to smile at every stranger I see on the road while I'm there for one week out of every year. Often I just want to be alone with myself and my thoughts...and Shining Sails fits the bill. It's immaculate, charming, fully furnished and equipped with everything we need, quiet, homey and comfortable. A wonderful place to stay. Simply wonderful.
