we were able to go last year with my father whom is 70 years old and had never been out of the country. we all grew up in southern california so we all share the love for the beach, the sun and the ocean. the house sits on the most peaceful waterways, the kids swam and we walked all over. the main street is just enough for a little shopping experience. kaye and henry are the perfect hosts- we enjoyed yacht rides to tiki tours around the island. our favorite were the hot springs and of course the mud baths. the house is pure luxury.....i didnt want to leave.
