Island View Guesthouse Review

Perched 545 feet up the face of Crown Mountain, this small, homey inn has hands-on owners who can book tours or offer tips about the best sightseeing spots. Rooms range from a suite with a kitchenette that's perfect for families to simply furnished verandah rooms. The two verandah rooms and six poolside rooms have no air-conditioning, but at this altitude there's always a breeze. Six of the rooms have kitchenettes, so you wouldn't have to eat out for every meal. There's an honor bar for drinks and snacks and a communal verandah where guests congregate for Continental breakfasts.

    fun and clean

    Ron and Beth make you feel at home. There's an honor bar and they'll fix you something to eat in the evenings if you're hungry. Free contintal breakfast in the morning. Great view. Great place.

    Best Secret on the Island!!

    Wow! Ron and Beth (new owners) and staff have made this a fantastic guest house - a true home-away-from-home. Absolutely no complaints. The honor bar is a nice touch and Josh & Ron cooked a killer ribeye. Ron and Beth took a bunch of us snorkeling -- sea turtles up close -- on their boat, as well as a Christmas Day brunch. We will be back!
