I stayed in the Oleander Cottage at Turtle Dove Lodge the last week of March 2004. It was Heaven! The cottage is adorable with a mind boggling view. The walk down the hill to Long Bay and to Apple Bay was very steep but well worth it. I was a little intimidated by the roads, so I chose not to rent a car. I had no problem walking to four different restaurants in the area. All of them were good! Carol, the owner, was a great help with assisting me to get around the island. One night we went to dinner at one of her favorite restaurants named the Roadhouse.
The food was excellent and the cats were a amusing addition to a great evening. I would recommend the Turtle Dove Lodge Cottages to anyone who is looking for a lovely accomodation with minimal frills and a spectacular view that I won't forget for a long time!
