We are committed to providing positive experiences and are very pleased that our guests are enjoying themselves so much.

Of course, living on a beautiful gulf island doesn’t hurt!  Many guests have been impressed with the beauty of the area, with island living, and with the friendly community.

The place is lovely and your warm hospitality is greatly appreciated. It was a really nice island getaway for us. We loved the tranquility of Protection Island!!

Being a longtime host and traveler with airbnb we feel we have enough experience to have a rating system. The Ahoy Guesthouse gets 10/10 in our books. . . Wendy & Cory were kind, helpful, friendly yet never in our faces. . . The accommodations are perfect. Most importantly the bed is excellent. We love the spacious accommodation where we can spread ourselves out without feeling cramped.  Everything is here to make it a home not just a hotel room. Even the coffee, tea, fruit and food essentials were a most thoughtful touch.

I loved the sea and your dog Libby.  Your bed was cozy and your swings and toys were awesome.

We had such a relaxing weekend … filled with new family memories. Protection Island is the first Gulf Island we visited. I think it has spoiled us for all the others!

Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail and recommendations for the area really made our stay a special one. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thank you for your hospitality.  The fruit bowl and the stocked fridge were much appreciated.  The “gold doubloons” were a big hit with the kids.  They loved “Pirate Island”.  We enjoyed swimming at 3 different beaches in one day!  Water shoes and kid toys made life much easier for us!

C’est l’endroit idéal pour revenir à l’essentiel. La nature et les sourires des insulaires nous ont fait le plus grand bien. Home away vous avez rendu notre séjour confortable, simple, et ô combien agréable.

The warmth and openness of everyone we met has shown us the true meaning of community. It was clear from our first meeting that you love P.I. and its people, and that love has rubbed off on us.

Everywhere we look there is a little something special . . . you all are interested in what we were up to and that makes it even more homey.
