Caribbean Soul & Southern Hospitality
Neil and Ginny Haynes lived aboard a sailboat in the Bahamas and the Caribbean for a combined 60 years, gathering enough incredible stories to fill a book. They finally settled down on beautiful Johns island in the '90s, where they could be surrounded by nature and raise their daughter. They built a round house in the flavor of the islands where they now host weddings and receptions. You can also spot mosaics throughout the property which are the handmade works of Ginny!
