I recently stayed at the Kismet for the weekend. Over the years, I have stayed there at least a dozen times. For a great dollar value, this is a great choice. Located right on the beach, Trish and Elvis will go out of their way to make you feel at home. I must add, that I usually will eat supper there at least one or two nights whenever I stay. Although the evening meal is usually not ready until 7/730, it is always worth the wait. This time I savoured fresh lobster in a hollandaise sauce, with a delicious vegie salad, home-baked wheat bread, steamed vegies and brown rice. It was wonderful... Kismet offers various accomodations - there is a private "Culture House" locacted behind the lodge, which is fully contained for cooking. In the main building, there is a large rental off of the veranda, which has 2 private bedrooms w/fans, private bathroom and another large/spacious front room with 3 single beds, table and chairs, etc. I was impressed with the great range of reading material in the room. Freshly cut flowers were also waiting for me on the table! There are also a few other private rooms on ground level, which open up onto the beach. If you are looking for great prices, great location and great food (Trish is also well-versed in vegetarian cooking), then the Kismet is the place to be! Check it out for yourself!
