Don't let the logistics keep you from this wonderful place. The staff will set up a shuttle from the airport if you need it (not cheap, but the shuttle woman is gret) then the water taxi is about a 10 minute ride. We became attached to many of the warm, gracious staff. We LOVED it. Just sitting on the lanai of ANY of the bungalows will charm you. The grounds are beautiful, the food is good, hiking in the hills gave us plenty of monkey time! It was incredibly relaxing and we felt pampered the whole time. You will feel terrific from the initial sweet greeting to your sad wave goodby on the boat. negatives - few: air conditioners are super to have but we couldn't keep it from blowing on our heads all night (air deflectors needed?). Add-on activities are a bit pricey, so we only did one, but it was amazing. We seldom return to the same place twice, but are considering going back.
