From the time we stepped onto the dock at Eldred’s Marina until we stepped back on the water taxi one week later every burden, care and worry were left behind. The island is a super quiet oasis. It is like you are by yourself in a tropical paradise. The people we did meet were very friendly and welcoming. The house, Casa Contenta, was perfect. Just the right size for the four of us adults. I love sitting on the screened back porch with the fans going and a book in hand (until I took my daily siesta, of course). The beds were super comfy. The baths spacious and clean. The overall flow of the house was light and breezy. The kitchen was well laid out, furnished and made it easy to prepare meals. From the upstairs deck you could see over the treetops from the bay to the beach, like a birds-eye view of the island. We also enjoyed our multiple quick strolls to the beach every day for our swims and shark hunting. And coming back to a nice hot shower outdoors was just the best. We loved that there are NO CARS! And although the house has a tv we never turned it on. If you are looking for peace, quiet, solitude, this is the place for you. We are coming back this fall and can’t wait!
