Jack picked us up from the airport and we were only a short drive away to his place (the island is small). The place was exactly as pictured and everything was very comfortable with ample space, clean sheets and towels, and a fully stocked kitchen. As my friend and I were there to dive Jack hooked us up with his partner, Wannadive, which was great, and he also arranged a car rental while we were there. Jack and Daphne were very professional and very welcoming as well. Jack and Daphne are just nice and friendly people which made staying here vs. a resort that much more enjoyable. Jack was always very responsive and knowledgeable about things diving related or otherwise. I would not hesitate to stay here.

Wow! We had a marvelous time, and Jack and Daphne were beyond welcoming. We had the two-bedroom apartment, and enjoyed the pool, watching the lizards and birds from the porch, cooking meals in the full kitchen with good kitchenware, and sleeping to the sound of the trade winds in the palm trees. On our last day, Jack tipped our vacation way over the top when he heard we hadn't seen a turtle in our seven days of snorkeling and diving trips. He packed us into his vehicle immediately, took us to the water at Salt Pier, and we found ourselves swimming beside a hawksbill turtle in less than a minute! We had a wonderful long snorkel with him, and that topped off a week of his good advice on whatever we asked about the island. One note - on the map the area looked close enough to the water to walk, but I only walked to the beach once and it was a bit long and hot. I do recommend asking Jack about rental cars - I imagine he can find a better deal than the airport. Oh, we also had a misunderstanding before arriving due to AirBnB website problems, and Jack was perfectly accommodating in calling us to clear it up and then adjusting the price. We felt wonderfully cared for overall.
