Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed the stay in Exuma. We have been travelling around all oceansbut this island has really a particular geographic position - only 300 miles from USA but you feel like in a castaway island. Thanks for hospitality, we hope one day to come back and see you again.



In French for Bill: Un endroit et des geus merveilleux. Super.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our relaxing vacation at Bill & Judy's. They were very hospitable! The apartment was impeccable! Very clean and organized! We were met at the airport and escorted to our home for the week. The location of the apartment couldn't have been better! Just minutes from the airport and just a short drive to town and local restaurants. Muffin & Lady were great too!

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

The Dilly Crab Ranch was the perfect place for our first ever island Christmas. My husband and I were finally able to pull off an island holiday with our two boys and a girlfriend (ages 24, 25, 27). We all had a blast. The house is perfectly centrally located... five minutes from the airport which came in handy b/c one son came in the day after us so picking him up was a cinch. 3-mile beach is a simple 1 minute walk away and it is absolutely stunning with the most gorgeous turquoise water I've ever seen and we've been all over the place! I didn't think the house or Judy and Bill could be any more charming but then we met Lady and Muffin...their two dogs. What an added bonus for any animal lover.

We were arriving on Boxing Day which meant that most everything would be closed so Judy made arrangements to make a trip to the store to have drinks and snacks at the house when we arrived. She is incredibly accommodating and has thought of everything for an incredible stay at the "crab". She even made a trip to the liquor store! We spent many nights playing pool, wii and ping pong with our boys. One son is a personal trainer so he was excited to see all of the workout gear she had.

As adorable as the house is, we did manage to leave it and take a few excursions. Mom's Bakery and lunch at Santannas on Little Exuma are definite must do's. If momma is taking bread out of the oven buy it right then b/c it will not be there after lunch! Take a water taxi over to Stocking Island for lunch at the Chat and Chill. We also planned swimming with the pigs with Exuma Water Sports...awesome!

All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "crab" and would very much like to return. Judy and Bill seem like family to us (sorry Judy you're stuck with us!) even after only one stay. Super sweet, charming folks.

Thank you Judy and Bill for making our Christmas 2012 so incredibly awesome!
We will definitely be back.

Warm regards,
Joy & David Haycox & Family

PERFECT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Dillycrab Ranch is as perfect as the pictures appear. 4 of us spent a wonderful week relaxing and enjoying Great Exuma. From fluffy bath towels, to plenty of beach towels, anything you could want was provided. Didn't think we would use the game room on the lower level, but it turned out to be a lot of fun in the evening.

Bill and Judy are great hosts and had answers to any questions we asked. We also enjoyed their 2 dogs, Lady and Muffin, who joined us for walks on the beach and would appear for a morning snack. Speaking of walks on the beach, every morning we walked, there was only one other person on the whole 3 miles. Pretty amazing having all that beach with so few people.

We enjoyed the location of the house. It wasn't too far to town and it was very close to the airport. Loved being able to relax on the deck the morning we left, knowing we only had a 5 minute drive to the airport.

If we find our way back to Exuma, Dillycrab will be the first thing we book!

WISH I WAS THERE NOW!

Sorry for the delayed review, but it seems like the last time we relaxed was August in Exuma. I can't say enough great things about Dillycrab Ranch and Exuma. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4, and Judy and Bill were great making sure everything was just so for us. We have traveled to several spots in the Caribbean, but this certainly ranks at the very top. The beach seems endless in both directions, the water is warm and clear, and the pool and downstairs game room is great for kids. The islanders are welcoming, and there is more than enough to do in a week. Take the boat ride up the chain if you can, it is a once in a lifetime experience, and spend some time at Tropic of Cancer Beach...amazing.

Thanks again to Judy and Bill. Hopefully we'll visit again one day!

HOPE TO COME BACK SOMEDAY

  • 5 of 5
Today is the last day of year 2012. The great opportunity for summaries. Together with my husband we discuss about the last 12 months, best moments, biggest challenges and achievements. We travel a lot so we also think about the places we visited. The best and the worst. We both think that the best place in 2012 was Dillycrab Ranch. It is a piece of paradise. Beautifull house on the marvelous white sandy beach. Ranch is owned and managed by very nice couple Judy and Bill. They're always ready to help you and do their best to make your vacation unforgettable. The area is quiet and conducive to relaxation, but there are also lots of attractions for families with kids. We have two boys and we've asked them where they want to go for holidays next year. Guess what they said.....

Dear Judy and Bill,

Serdecznie dzi?kujemy za cudowne wakacje i ?yczymy Wam szcz??liwego Nowego Roku 2013! Do zobaczenia na Great Exuma - kiedys na pewno (thank you once again for great vacations and we wish you Happy New Year 2013! Hope to meet you again at Great Exuma - someday for sure :)

A PIECE OF PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5
I don't usually write reviews after my vacations but having stayed at Dilly Crab Ranch it just wouldn't be fair not to share with others just how absolutely wonderful this guest house is. Judy and Bill go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is comfortable and memorable. All aspects of the vacation exeeded our expectations by providing us with all the comforts of home from the delicious linens to the well stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed using the pool and ping pong table at night in the downstairs game room.The pool was wonderful for lounging but walk two minutes up the driveway and you are on one of the most gorgeous not to mention secluded beaches in the world! Even though Bill and Judy are next door you have total privacy and they are around as resources should you need them.
When we arrived Judy was kind enough to meet us at the airport to help with some luggage and point us in the direction of our rental car. Dilly Crab is close to the airport so we were on the beach within a half hour of clearing customs....Heaven! The decor is tasteful and beachy and things like beach chairs, coolers and even an umbrella are all there for your convenience.
I hope to return again to the Exumas and I would not stay anywhere but Dilly Crab Ranch. It was clean, comfortable and so peaceful. There is also a liquor store and grocery store about a five minute drive away. If you are a dog lover Muffin and Lady are a welcome addition to morning walks on the beach or evening visits up on the porch.

Thanks again Bill and Judy for making our vacation so perfect!!!
