Nice place and terrific location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Great Exuma and the people are super friendly. I really liked them, and so helpful. This home is nice, clean, and right on the beach. The owners were very nice to work with and Frederika, the caretaker was very sweet, and helpful, but not intrusive. I would certainly love to come back here.

They Don't Call it Paradise Point for Nothing!

  • 4 of 5

I am a returner 'offender' as I have been to this rental property and Great Exuma several times. I will warn those who are looking for the Ritz or an all inclusive -- you've come to the wrong place!

This is a wonderful island and a wonderful house. It sits up overlooking an almost private beach -- saw one other person while we were there -- and a bluer-than-blue ocean view. The house is open and bright with the main living room big enough for four of us to relax comfortably when we were there. The kitchen was showing some salt/sand wear and tear but we were told by the owner that the kitchen remodeling would be done this fall to include new cabinets, countertops and appliances!

If you are looking for a affordable retreat away from a typical touristy beach, this island and this home is definitely the place for you. Unlike other resort islands, vacationers have the opportunity to absorb the culture and interact with the locals -- Sunday pig roast on Stocking Island is a must!

PS the owner and caretaker were very friendly and took care of us and any requests we had... and coming from a busy city like Washington, DC the traffic (an occasional car) I saw someone else comment about -- was definitely not worth noting!

It's just right

  • 4 of 5

You arrive to the property, at the back of the house, which is probably not it's best feature; but then you walk up this stone path which curves around the side of the house, and then you start to feel the breeze from the ocean and see that turquoise blue water. You know you are officially on vacation. The house is right on the ocean, with a big deck around the back . The living/dining/kitchen/ are one big open room, very spacious, so you never feel like you are stumbling over each other. For me, most importantly, is that it is very clean. They have a caretaker , Freddie, who is very nice and a wealth of information if you need anything. We went to Chat n' chills one day, Chartered a boat that took us to snorkle, swim with turtles, visit isolated cays, and lunch at a great resort on the water. It was a great day. I think paradise point is a great value for the money. I see on the site they are doing some upgrades, new kitchen, deck, etc, which will be really nice. I would recommend staying here.

Just OK but works for what you need it for

  • 3 of 5

I think this is definitely on the lower end of the rental range as far as quality. The pictures are pretty outdated. The house could definitely use some TLC but works for what we needed it for. The water in the shower was hot, the kitchen was fine, the deck had a nice view. The things I would complain about would be the bed. There was a huge sag in the middle of the mattress. We were so happy to come home to our own bed! But I can understand how it would be hard to replace those kind of things. Everything has to be shipped in so fixing up a house would be quite the task. The other main thing that annoyed me was a palm tree that was outside the bedroom window had a branch hanging over the roof. It was very windy when we were there so every night you could hear the thump thump thump of the branch against the roof. Kind of annoying! You do hear the cars on the road from the bedroom as a previous review stated but we just closed the windows on that side and turned on the A/C. That managed to drown out the noise. The last con about the place was the driveway. We had a sketchy rental vehicle to begin with but the driveway was pretty rocky and torn up. Thankfully we did not have a flat! The driveway is a U shape and very run down. I think the best thing that made this worth the money, which I think is a little overpriced, was the view. The beach is awesome and we did some snorkeling out front. That said, I don't know if we would choose this rental again. There are quite a few rentals close by and they seemed to be well kept.

Paradise Pointe

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed there from 11/20/11 to 11/30/11. The view from the back

porch was amazing, even though it was too rough to swim there because of a weather

front. It was great having a full kitchen. We brought most of our meat with us, and cooked out on the grill almost every night. My husband really enjoyed the WiFi, and

was glad that he brought his computer with him. Freddie the caretaker was available on the premises, and gave us her cell phone number when she was not. Since there is a washing machine and clothes line, we packed lightly, and washed halfway through our trip.I can not think of anything that we needed, that was not supplied in the house. If

available, we plan on staying there again in the Spring when we return.

Paradise Point Was Exactly That- A Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Paradise Point for a week in July. The house was absolutely perfect. The view from the living room and the deck seemed surreal. The few palm trees blowing in the wind and the white sand beach are now my screen saver. People cannot believe that the picture was actually taken by me. The house is very clean and has everything you need to relax, cook and just chill. The beach is very private. You can swim right out front and take walks without hardly seeing anyone. One of the best things about Paradise Point is the on-site caretaker, Fredricka. She has a knack for answering any questions you have and helping to take care of all of your needs yet you have the feeling that you are are completely alone on your vacation.

The island of Great Exuma has much to offer. We loved hanging out at the local places to eat. You can meet other tourists and get to know the locals. The food was delicious everywhere we went. The atmosphere is extremely laid back. No one is in a hurry and life in Great Exuma feels completely stress free.

One of the highlights of our trip was renting our own boat. We went snorkeling and saw amazing coral, starfish and other colorful marine life. The water is crystal clear and clean. Afterward we went to the "Chat and Chill" for lunch and a few rum drinks. That was a day we will always remember.

We would highly recommend a stay at Paradise Point. It was a much needed reprieve from the stresses of our daily lives. We cannot wait to go back again. We have told all of our friends it is a must for their next vacation!
