    What’s the deal with this place? Can we fly in just to grab lunch? Comments on FF indicate it may be private, yet it appears it may be do-able on other sites. Thoughts?

    That’s the plan tonight. Was hoping to hit F47 tomorrow before heading home.

    I found out the deal with this airport. It is a public airport. The runway, taxiways, and ramp are all public areas. Unfortunately you can not access the rest of the island (from the airport) without permission from the HOA or a valid rental agreement in hand. PS...T & G's are frowned upon.

    Unfortunately is was disappointing. We sat at the bar for 15 minutes with no service. We ended up at a place called "Up the Stairs." Excellent food and service.

    Sorry to hear that... it’s been a while since last time for me, will still give it a try next time down in the area.
