“Your Own Little Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 26 April 2011 for a stay in April 2011

My husband and I had a wonderful one week stay at Big Rock in April 2011. The weather was beautiful, nice and windy to keep the sand flies away :) We really enjoyed hanging out with Rusty and Hans, who definitely made us their number one priority. I am a nervous scuba diver and Hans had me completely at ease the whole time. If you are sick of the big, cattle-like dive boats, this is for you. We felt like we were able to see more secluded things than some larger operations and had a lot more flexibility. Rusty was a great boat captain, regaling us with stories of his adventures. They also did a great job of exposing us to the island, from lunch in the Cayes to beers in town. The rest of the time we enjoyed the amazing view on the hammocks and the even more breathtaking view scubaing and snorkeling the house reef.

A few thoughts/tips:
- Be sure to have some extra money for lunch, buying fish, etc.
- Bug spray and sun screen are muy importante - if you diligently apply both you should escape with a nice tan and only a few bug bites
- When you make your provisioning list, try to think of some recipes before you go. Some nights, in a very small kitchen and with limited supplies, we were struggling to come up with something yummy
- If your only goal is to see a whale shark, this may not be the best option. Rusty is more than willing to drive you around all day but with gas prices on the rise and no one else to split them with, this could cost you hundreds of extra dollars.

If you are looking for a 5-star resort, this is not the place. There are bugs, you cook all your own meals, there is nothing else really around. But if you are looking for peace and quiet, a place to really get away from everything, Big Rick is perfect.

Reviewed 4 December 2010 for a stay in January 2010

Trey - sorry for the delay in conveying our comments - but Big Rock was a great vacation spot - from being entertained and ferried around the ocean with Captain Rusty -fish sandwiches and beer over on Diamond Cay - to enjoying ourselves at your lovely cabin on the ocean. Being able to dive from the dock on our own time is the only way to dive. Your place was absolutly perfect for the two of us to relax and enjoy the secluded island life - a great place -hope to return one day.
