I really like Frank and Gabbi.
As an American traveling to the Bahamas, I was surprised to have German hosts. But I would say afterwards, they are more Gerhamian. Everybody on the island knows them, this is a good thing.
Frank picked us up from the airstrip. He knew we were coming because you can see the small planes from the hotel.
Frank was there the day before because I accidentally gave wrong arrival information. I was in Atlanta at work when I get an email saying where are you? I replied that we were arriving tomorrow, then realized my mistake. Frank fixed everything through Sky Bahamas and said no problem. He was there the next day to pick us up. No problem. Thank you Frank.
We arrived at Shannas Cove after a beautiful drive. Frank helped us acquire some things we desired. We met some very nice people that we would see again . It was about a 30 minute trip.
Enter Gabbi. Frank and Gabbi have a dynamic relationship that inspires me to this day. You know immediately who wears the pants. But it takes two to tango, and they make it work beautifully.
Gabbi does not mess around, nor mince words. You will know what it is expected of you. And how not to behave. I learned this within 5 minutes. At first, I was a slightly put off, but I came to appreciate straight talk. Only later would I discover Gabbi's fun side. Quite an incredible woman.
We were shown our room and given instructions. We were in shock. This place is better than it looks in photographs.
There are about 10 or so rooms/cabins/bungalows. We got Turtle, best of the best. Highly recommended.
We lost ourselves literally and figuratively.
First night after dinner we accidentally went to the wrong cabin. Somehow we spent about 10 minutes in a different house. There was no luggage, no sign of occupancy. This is what tipped us off to the fact that we had stumbled into the wrong abode. Slightly imbibed, we noticed our mistake. We made our way 30 steps down to Turtle. Oops. Our first night here, we already violated the rules.
No problem the next morning, but we were called out on our mistake. Someone flushed a toilet in an unoccupied room, Frank said. Yes, it was us. Our bad. No problem, Frank said, remember you're in Turtle. Please don't let Gabbi find out about this I was thinking.
