The moment my fiancee Terri and I stepped onto Eugene's property, we were enthusiastically welcomed by him and shown the grounds, which we have to say are the most unique and well thought-out of any hotel, motel, rental, or bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at...
He has a colorful garden filled with the most helpful of the bush plants, with areas off to the side to sit in the shade and relax. There's also a petting zoo filled with goats, a sheep, turkey and a wild boar (among other animals), all of which are friendly and eager to have their photo taken for tasty leaves picked up from the ground. Then there's an area to get down and party -- complete with an outdoor bar and a stage for a live band! Behind this is a space that can double as an outdoor movie theater, or place to have a family or church picnic.
In a building across from the motel is a cafe and gift-shop where you can hang out and chat with the other guests, or jam out on the instruments provided. There's always a fresh pot of coffee on tap, and a self-serve bar with rum, wine and beer. In another room is a dorm/hostel for large groups. And most notably, this building houses a theater which rivals those you would find in a city like New York. The lighting, the the sound system, the picture quality are absolutely perfect! For added effect, the smoke machine turns on and you're instantly transported away to a world of fantasy...!
The decor of the rooms is also highly creative and unique to each room. In his design, Eugene incorporates pieces of the natural environment -- driftwood and pieces of coral -- and fits that in with an artful paint job.
The beds are very comfy; the rooms and bathrooms are clean; and the A/C is strong. Cable TV with several movie stations and American channels is provided for winding down at the end of the night.
I had several nights of sound, restful sleep while here.
During our stay, we got our rental car stuck in the sand out in a secluded spot. Eugene went above and beyond as proprietor and host and came to the rescue to pull us out with his truck -- what a great guy!
I highly recommend staying at Pineville Motel when traveling to North Andros!
