re: DIY Bahamas
By mixed use I mean a place that strictly not a bonefish lodge and might have kayaks for rent. Again, something that might be compatible for a non-fishing girlfriend. I know that's tough.
Ideally I'd like to not need to rent a car but would if necessary. In lieu of that a place that has flats within a 20 minute walk or bike ride would be fine.
Lastly I'm not looking for an active night life. Just a place that has some options perhaps or interesting people to meet. After 6 hours of wading, maybe some snorkling and a good meal I consider that a full day.
I've been researching Seascape Inn, Small Hope Bay Lodge on Andros but I also like the looks of Eleuthera, Exumas and Acklins.
