Recommended by our bartender at Stonecliff, we were extremely happy with the food, service (ask for Michael), and pricing. After the Cudahy House, and considering the food and service, this was a deal

how close is it to Mission Point?

Response from GHKellie | Property representative |
Woods is not near Mission Point at a;;. We are located more toward the center of the island near the airport and Stonecliff.
How do customers hail the taxi for The Woods, and where does this taxi pick up? Are strollers (folded up) permitted on the taxi?
