We had a wonderful time on the island. The setting is absolutely ideal if you like privacy, seclusion, amazing views, watching sunrises and sunsets relaxing with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine depending on the time of day! What makes the place unique is how accommodating the owner is to his guests. Any other island we looked up suggested that we use a water taxi to get there. John took us to the island himself, and generously provided another boat ride back and forth during our stay to accommodate our plans, despite the fact that we came back late at night.
