We just returned from our second visit with Gabi, Frank and the Shannas family - we truly feel like it is our second home. All of the accolades stated here are true - it IS a hidden slice of paradise; one you want to keep a private secret, but that would be unfair to all involved. A couple we met...

Visited Shannas Cove with my wife to celebrate Valentine's day. Been to beaches around the world, and this has to be one of the most beautiful one. Powder white sand to go with clear turquoise water. Most of the times we were the only ones on the beach. Breakfast starts with a beautiful plate of cut fruits, followed by a...

WOW, how do I begin. We returned to this wonderful place after two years and it just seems to get better and better. The rooms are still small but totaly roomy and very comfortable with a beautiful terrace overlooking the ocean. There are only five cabins but they are completely sold out through August. The food is exceptional and the...

I could easily echo all of the accolades of the 150+ reviews on this site. As I read the other reviews, I am hard-pressed to provide new adjectives or additional tributes not previously addressed by others at length. In our case, my wife and I were looking for a quiet place to retreat from the cold climate and hectic pace...

Let me start by saying, I am regretfully posting this review, because I am concerned the resort calendar will be filled after more people find out how great Shanna's Cove is. Nevertheless, I must say that our honeymoon on Cat Island was spectacular. Frank and Gabi were excellent hosts; they were relaxed, informative, and they met the needs/requests of their...

Thank you trip advisor (and of course all the guests who have posted their experiences) for bringing to light what a true gem Shanna's Cove really is. We just arrived home from a 5 night stay and couldn't have asked for a more secluded/romantic time in the Bahamas. Thank you Frank and Gabi for everything, a return trip is a...

Four days are not enough and five stars are not enough! We have traveled many places, including many Caribbean Islands. Shanna’s Cove is a unique private little slice of paradise and is a must go place. If you are looking to be alone and away from it all, this is the place. Limited to 10 guests, privacy is easy to...

An absolutely wonderful long weekend at Shannas Cove. My wife and I wanted a break from the loud and over crowded resorts, and we found an absolute tranquil paradise. Simply put we loved the villas, beach, food, staff, drinks and company. A wonderful opportunity to unplug from the world, and enjoy stunning blue water while relaxing on multiple empty beaches....

I had my first visit to Shannas Cove last summer and have been thinking about it ever since. I agree with basically everything that has been said in the other reviews about the beautiful beach, incredible food and very comfortable rooms of Shannas Cove. However, for me the real reason that I can't wait to go back to Shannas Cove...

Absolute best place in the world. It will be the most amazing trip ever, guaranteed! The view is perfect, the rooms are spotless (stripped and bleached top to bottom each year), the food is delightful, and best of all, the company (owners) is par non. Stop looking and book this trip now, you can thank me later.
