It's "peaceful and romantic," says one of the island owners, Kimberly. "I really wanted them to feel like they had everything they need. The fridge is fully stocked, the finest champagne, fresh fruit platter, high-tech cappuccino machine."

Still, she adds, "The Duke and Duchess are so down to earth. They haven't asked for one thing."
