What other information should I know?
Like many locations, and all over the Bahamas, we do have no-seums (very tiny mosquito like bugs). They come out at dusk and linger till dawn. We suggest you bring lightweight long sleeve shirts and pants for the evening if you plan to sit outdoors. You can also bring bug repellant if desired, but most find it not necessary. If you stay in the breeze and wear clothing that covers your skin, most people have no issue whatsoever. We also advise keeping any windows and doors that don't have screens closed so they don't get into the house.
We have 2 very adorable and very friendly dogs that live on the property. They belong to us and are taken care of by our staff. They shouldn't get in your way and if anything will only make your stay more fun!
