Expert Review

If you can do without phone and TV (or pool and restaurant), this cozy find is like staying at your favorite aunt’s 1950s beachfront compound. Owner Betty Vaughan hails from Maine but is a font of local lore and info. The building itself was originally built for a former island governor. All eight spotless units have full kitchens, private bath, Wi-Fi, and smashing sea views (especially from the second floor or adjacent sunny octagonal round house). Repeat guests cherish the camaraderie (frequent spur-of-the-moment beach barbecues) and quiet (save the occasional jets whooshing to and from the nearby airport).
