THE KIDS CLUB
A favorite destination for the kids where arts, crafts, games and educational activities are happening daily. A great way for the children to spend time making new friends while parents enjoy some quiet time. The Rec Room also features a flat screen television for rainy day family movie time or checking in with daily news.
There are three separate coves with stretches of white powder sand, coral rock outcroppings for unbelievable snorkeling right off the beach and all of the privacy you could ask for. Finding another's footprints would be a challenge. These beaches are virtually untouched. Because of this we are able to embrace the natural beauty of this spectacular location and offer through our resort the opportunity to share it with others.
We also offer a fun selection of water activities. Take a single or tandem kayak or stand up paddle board for a spin up the nearby creek. Explore the extensive mangrove lined waterways, see sting ray, sea turtles, and schools of brilliant tropical fish. We also have a super fun 10' water trampoline right off the beach. Pick up a set of snorkeling gear and head out for a leisure snorkel dive right around Pompey Rock. We can arrange for diving excursions as well.
The Resort Property
Situated on nearly 10 acres just minutes south of The Arthur's Town Airport, HHVR is on the northernmost end of Bennett's Harbour. On the other end of the Harbour is a small dock, a perfect safe harbour for cruisers (sailing boats). The beaches of the property and those close by are extraordinary - unmatched by any other in the world! You will believe it when you see it. A still pond rests on the back side of the inland property. There is a lot of room to explore and to relax.
Other property features: Swimming Pool ( which is currently being used as a turtle habitat by our children), local restaurants within walking distance.
