If you'd like to step away from resorts,casinos,hoards of tourists,cruise ships, and REALLY live in a Bahamian neighborhood for a week or two, you couldnt do ANY better than this sweet cottage,on the most beautiful,isolated beach I've EVER seen-and I've seen MANY Caribbean beaches.First of all the owner is wonderful to deal with,and he has furnished his cottage with everthing you could want. You DEFINITELY need a car-there's just SO much to see and explore,and he'll give you the name of an excellent car rental agency,who will meet you at the airport with your car.And the locals...What can I say except they are the nicest,funniest people I've ever met. You'll HAVE to meet LIGHTY who's the island historian and can tell you ANYTHING you might want to know about the island and it's people.The resturants were great-lots of conch and fresh fish,and there's a phone in the house to call ahead and order what you'd like later in the day.NO Wendys or Micky D'S here. Our favorites were EZRENAS(Driggs Hill),SKIPPERS(KEMPS BAY) and JEFFS(Congo Town).The owners all take GREAT pride in their food and it shows.The snorkling was excellent-and it's only a short swim straight out in front of the house.M and M grocery store(The Bluff) had good steaks,good cheese and YUMMY Rum Raisin ice cream.There was plenty of hot water for the shower, and we took a length of rope, that we strung up between two coconut trees,and washed clothes in the tub,and dried our clothes-Bahamian style-on the clothes line. There was always a good breeze so it took only a short time to dry.We only left South Andros a few days ago, and we're ALREADY plotting how to get back as soon as possible.It's really hard to imagine a place-and people like these-exsisting in our fast paced world.Also, there's two nice mountain bikes for a bit of exercise-IF you can tear yourself away from that beach.Thanks Greg,for such an INCREDIBLE experience.Gloria and John,S.Carolina
