After all the emails back and forth, I was worried you were a pampered resort type guest not ready for a vacation home. Yes there is poverty here as on all Caribbean islands, but since our home is not a resort we don’t have a wall and keep you sheltered inside from seeing it, same with the horse guy – sorry he entered our gate calling out for you, he’s really a nice guy. Also of course in the Caribbean, there are palmetto bugs that will come in the house when you leave the doors open, we poison around the house often, but it’s not possible to rid them completely. Same with the tiny sugar ants if you leave sweets out overnight. The beach bar down the way does play music and if you cup your ears you can usually make out what the song is, hardly “blasting”. On the random days they are open for about 6 hours, most of our guests wander down there, have drinks, and enjoy it. Sorry it wasn’t your cup of tea. Lastly, our island is VERY ARID and hardly ever has mosquitoes, certainly not like many other Caribbean islands. Occasionally we will have a rain and a week later we will see some mosquitoes at dusk only. Stay inside for that hour and you’ll be fine. The big island of Providenciales where you first fly in to has double the rainfall we do and does have a fair bit of mosquito activity. IF she actually got Zika, it would have been there, our mosquitoes die off for weeks at a time between rainstorms and wouldn’t carry the virus. So glad you had a great time otherwise, and yes the SCUBA diving here is ranked some of the best in the world.
