For those not picky about room furnishings, Paraquet (pronounced "parakeet") provides a centrally located, motel-like, no-frills stay. Accomodations are simple, clean, and unadorned. The biggest draw is, at its price, proximity to Elbow Beach, one of the prettiest beaches on the island—a mere five-minute walk away! The Paraquet Restaurant is reasonably priced and—surprise!—is an American-style diner, with milk shakes, straws in old jars, and low counter stools. You
can also walk to the nearby supermarket and cook your own meals in one of nine rooms with kitchenettes.
