Beautiful location, great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

As others have written, part of me doesn't want to write this review because I want to keep this little hidden treasure to myself! My wife and I were here for just a few days this past week and loved our stay. Win has figured out the perfect balance of being available to her guests without being overbearing. As a long term resident of the island, she's got the inside track on all of the best things to do. Her property - even after the storm - exceeded my expectations! There is so much natural beauty but you can see at every turn how much she loves and cares for her slice of paradise. We didn't need to use the A/C at all while we were there and fell asleep each night to the sounds of the forest. On evenings after it rained, there were giant toads that would come out. There weren't afraid of us at all, in fact they followed us up the driveway like lost puppies! Speaking of pups, Win's dogs are awesome! I can already tell that Chase is going to be my little buddy when we come back in May - Win said he's her trail dog. Win was also able to show us the cottage where we'll be staying in May. It seems the people who stay here are the type who like to socialize with their neighbors, but the cottages are secluded enough that you have all the privacy you could ask for. Overall we were delighted with our stay and can't wait to bring our kids back for a longer visit!

Win is a wonderful lady that takes care of the place the way it should be taken care of. She cares about people and wants them to be happy. If you need anything just ask.
