Dear esteemed guests, It was indeed a pleasure to host you and to get to spend time with you, hiking, conversing, showing you around and hopefully sending you off to interesting, less well-known spots on this precious island. We are glad you felt so comfortable and able to relax from your busy lives. We can't wait to have you back!

There's a 200 character minimum? That won't be hard to accomplish. This place is little known gem. Great hosts, super views, surrounded by nature.

“Cell phones don't have service/wifi in the rooms, which was perfect for us! It truly allows you to connect with nature and not just sit on your phone. There is service and wifi in the lodge, if you need to work! ”
