"We booked one of the 2 bedroom beach apartments for 6 weeks, the whole booking process was very straight forward and easy, Trevor (the owner) had plenty of patience for the numerous questions sent his way! The apartment was exactly as described and was extremely clean. Trevor’s sister Princess and her husband Mario were on hand for any help and advice, they are lovely people and really do want you to feel comfortable and most of all to enjoy your holiday – customer service like this is extremely thin on the ground these days…
Davis Creek is a wonderful place to stay, it’s out of the main village of Fresh Creek and is quiet and relaxed with amazing beaches right in front of the apartment. We were lucky enough to see dolphins swim by as well as a mah-mahi which was a little off course but a real treat to see from the end of the dock, I could go on and on about the turtles, manta rays, ospreys etc, there is wild life in abundance and it’s just perfect for bird watching, fishing, kayaking, exploring and diving or just lazing with a good book and a cool drink by your hand.
The bonefishing is excellent and so easily available especially for DIY fishermen, if you are fishing for bonefish I would recommend that you get an ‘Explorer Chartbook’ (near Bahamas) as it’s impossible to get decent maps for fishing and the ‘Explorer Chartbook’ details all the low water and tide tables, we also cross reference with ‘google earth’ as it shows all the tracks. If the weather is against you there are some very good guides who will always be able to find you a good sheltered spot for fishing and usually some nice big bonefish. Try Tommy Kee for Fresh Creek and Red Bays and Mark Bastian for fishing the Bights. If you fancy a day out reef fishing for mahi-mahi, wahoo, mackerel, ‘cuda, snapper, grouper etc, try Tanno, you can get hold of him at ‘Mables Store’ just north of Fresh Creek between the liquor store and the bank.
For people wishing to dive, Small Hope Resort is the next bay south of Davis Creek and it’s possible to book some diving/snorkelling with them if they are not fully booked.
Coffee drinkers make sure to take plenty of your favourite coffee with you as there is very little choice in the local stores. Kenya's Bakery in Fresh Creek makes the most delicious coconut bread!
Be sure to pack some good bug repellent, when the sea breeze drops you may need it.
We had a really great holiday and will definitely return to this beautiful rustic little island."
