At the beginning of September, I was taken to the most stunning location. My husband had planned a last minute surprise honeymoon for us, and I had no idea what to expect.... but it certainly wasn't this place. It's been almost 2 weeks since we left and I'm still blown away and scrambling to find the words to describe our time away. I knew places like this existed, but I never thought I'd see one. And now that we have, I just want us to go back.
The 3 hosts we were greeted by are super friendly and inviting and they let us know all the things to do and see. The house is beautiful and each detail inside and out is fantastic. Going to bed and waking up listening to waves and the sight just from our bed, had us waking with smiles on our faces.... But that front Deck! When we weren't out and about on the island snorkeling or kayaking right around the island, we were out there,right on the water-Day and night, taking in that amazing view and watching Whales! 2 days in a row we spotted a couple of whales all from our doorstep. The pool that is carved into the rock and filled from the ocean is awesome.
This was exactly what we needed. A chance to unwind, relax and just be with each other. We have incredible and special memories from our honeymoon at East Bedarra Island. I hope we return here one day, because it was just that perfect!
I could go on and on and still never feel like I've done this place justice. You really should experience this place.
