We stayed for one week in the cottage on the beach in July 2014. We have been to Exuma several times, having stayed at Grand Isle on Emerald Bay. This is the first time we have rented from a private owner and, after this fantastic experience, we plan to return again and again! Juan, the owner, was incredibly responsive and very informative. He was more than willing to address any question we had prior to and during our trip. The cottage itself was simply adorable and all the conveniences one would need to enjoy a week in paradise were at hand. The cottage was well appointed with a good dose of charm throughout, quaint and comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms with large showers, an efficiency kitchen with a good size mini-fridge, and a living/dining area that easily met our needs. The patio off the front doors was nice and the pergola was wonderful for eating outside overlooking the crystal clear water. There were beach chairs and snorkeling gear available and the cottage is also about two doors down from the FP pool. This was fantastic for a dip after a day spent on the water! We rented a boat from Minn's (a must to tour the Harbor - don't miss Chat n' Chill - and find a private beach) and we docked it at the FP marina. This is a very important point as Minn's does allow you to dock your boat there...when we stayed at Grand Isle we had to drop the boat off every night at 5pm, drive nearly 30 minutes to Grand Isle, then get up and drive 30 minutes back to Minn's each morning. The convenience of docking your boat near your property cannot be overstated. We appreciated it immensely and the dock is a short walk from the cottage. We didn't even rent a car this time. We were disappointed that the FP restaurant was not nearly as good as when we were there two years prior. Sarah, the manager, was great. However, there has been a change in management and we can only hope that things will improve with time. I mention this because the previous meal we had there was superb and there was a significant difference in the quality of food and service. We have traveled a great deal, both domestically and internationally and Exuma ranks in our top 5 destinations. I would highly recommend this property if you are considering a trip to Exuma. We really enjoyed the cottage for our small party, but the house would be excellent for a larger group. Thank you, Juan, for offering such a wonderful place to escape to nothing short of paradise!
