          Dear Mandy, we don’t have shuttle per se. If available I sometimes pick guests from the airport ($10). Otherwise, we can organize one of our regular taxis to do that, same fare. Kind regards, Laurent

          The above answer is correct in every detail! Ocean Basket is OK but there are far more interesting places to eat fish. The Indian Restaurant, Golden Leaf is one of the best Indian's we ever had outside of South London!
