Concierge.com's insider take:

Off the northeast coast of Andros, the biggest (though paradoxically most unspoiled) Bahamian island, is this idyllic 96-acre private island, which has been made into one of the most laid-back resorts in the entire Caribbean by its Jamaican owners, Brian and Jennifer Hew. Rooms, mostly huge, are in a collection of 19 villas and cottages scattered among the sea grapes and palms. Some are beachfront, others set back a ways, and all have verandas, fans, AC, and CD players. Decor ranges from soaring wooden cathedral ceilings, exposed stone walls, and Turkish rugs in some rooms to all boudoir white in others; the biggest have kitchenettes—though these seem de trop if you choose the "Guest of House" option, in which all food and drink (apart from Champagne) is included. Everyone gets free use of kayaks, Windsurfers, snorkeling gear, bicycles, and tennis equipment. Dinners can be served à deux on the beach; lunches on an uninhabited islet; and, though there's a spa, a massage will come to you if requested. Cookies, still warm from the oven, are left in your room every afternoon—one of the small things that make people remember this place most fondly. That and the Saturday night jump-up barbecue.
