Beautiful!

The house and grounds were everything as pictured and located on a beautiful private white sand beach. The view was beautiful and the location (close to the airport) was a great advantage. The sunrise was well worth getting up early in the morning for! We had perfect weather for the sun seekers and wind for the kiteboarders. It was a perfect weather mix for both.

Disappointing Cabin by the beach

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My husband and I researched many properties before settling on Sea Garden for a vacation with our adult daughter and her boyfriend. We read the reviews, and weren't too leery of the bugs nor the potential construction noise. From afar, it oozed with Bahamian charm, and the owner was quick to reply to the questions we had. As an example, we learned that a new "privacy" fence had been placed between the cottage and the construction area directly next to it by reading the owners response to a negative review. We also believed the construction would be wrapped up by the end of 2013. When we arrived, we saw that the 'fence' was actually a few large blue tarps that were completely shredded by the elements. There was zero privacy from the construction area. Our daughter was whistled at by the workers as she walked out of the cottage and onto the beach. One afternoon I was relaxing on the lanai when I spotted a man standing in front of me. He said he'd been sent by the owner to measure the exterior windows, but we had not been alerted, so we weren't sure what his true intentions were. The noise of the construction was annoying, particularly since nail pounding began close to 8am every day of our stay. When we attempted to take out the sea kayaks we quickly saw that one of the oars was broken and unusable. My husband took a photo of it (and the 'fence') and sent it to the owner by email, which she did not respond to. I never saw a single bug inside the house, or a lizard. The cottage was well equipped, apart from soap, paper towels and toilet paper. The laundry room was very handy too. On the day of our departure, I began to strip the sheets from the bed my husband and I'd been sleeping in for the previous six days, and was horrified. The mattress pad was filthy, complete with yellow stains. It was clearly evident that it had not been laundered before our arrival. I took a second shower because the sight made me feel like I'd been sleeping in flop house bed. There are plenty of lovely cottages for rent along the same stretch of beach, and elsewhere, so keep looking if you want to enjoy the beauty of this lovely island. We were mislead by the construction and the complete lack of privacy and can't recommend this to anyone in good conscience.

Construction Continues

We stayed at Sea Garden for a week in March, 2014. The house itself is fine, right on a beautiful beach with a nice wrap-around porch and plenty of furniture. The location on the beach is spectacular.

However, the owner mislead us about the construction next door, claiming it would be completed by Christmas, 2013. Although she was told at some point in the past that the work would be done by Christmas 2013, she certainly knew at Thanksgiving 2013 (when we booked) that this information was incorrect due to the fact that even today, the home is nowhere near complete. Now her claim is that the construction will be done by the end of March, but this is impossible given the large amount of work that still needs to be done. The main part of the home still does not have walls.

There is a torn up tarp stapled to some posts that is generously being called a "privacy wall", which provides neither privacy nor noise reduction. We were there during an unusually windy week, and despite the rough surf, the surf in no way drowned out the construction noise, as is claimed.

If you don't mind the sound of construction starting at 7:00 a.m. every day but Sunday, and continuing all day until 3:00 or 4:00 p.m., this might be a good house for you. We were woken every day by loud boom boxes, and then started the hammering, circular saws, orbital sanders, compressors, workers yelling, etc. all day long. But, if you like to get up early and go out exploring the island every day, this really would not impact you that much.

The house is not well equipped for cooking - no bowl for mixing anything or serving salad, no wine opener, no tongs, not even salt and pepper. There are plastic wine glasses, juice glasses, salad/lunch plates, etc. for 4 people, not 6. The kitchen is very dark, almost dangerous to cook in at night, and we had to move a floor lamp over so we could see to cook.

As for the positives, the owner was very nice to work with on the rental (of course excluding the misrepresented construction), the washer and dryer worked great, the house was convenient to George Town, the beach was perfect, and the layout of the house is nice. Bedrooms are not private because instead of proper doors, louvered closet doors that do not meet in the middle were used. This helps with air circulation, but makes the rooms noisy - if someone stays up to watch TV or listen to music, the sound is heard throughout the house. The website accurately represents the beach and home.
Owner's Response: Yes, the house is beautiful and has the best location on the island.
Sorry for the construction site, it's out of our hands. The owner of that house promised us to be done by Christmas, so when I took down the bookings in August for the following March, of course I told the guests exactly what I was told by the neighbors. But as we see now the construction took longer then expected. It will be done by the June, 2014.
As far as cooking ware, we always replace it with the new one, since guests break it and it gets less of it. We have a 24/7 manager that is available just a phone call away. If the house is lacking something, just call her and ask for the things you need. I always tell that to guests, that things go wrong at any house and any time, and it all fixable. We are in business for 17 years with the house and have a lot of returning guests year after year and have a very good reputation on the island.
Thank you and we would love you to stay at our beautiful house on the beach!!!

Excellent Location and Beautiful

My family and I enjoyed a fantastic week staying at this home. There were six of us and there was plenty of room. We rented a boat from Mimms in Georgtown and drove the boat on the water back to the house to pick up the rest of the family, right on the beach. There is construction next door, but a privacy fence separates the property and you hardly noticed the construction. We barbecued at night and saw more stars than one could imagine. It was truly a spectacular vacation and I would not hesitate recommending this property. AMR

Construction next door, owner unconcerned

  • Submitted: May 23, 2013

My wife and I long awaited this vacation and the first thing we saw when we pulled up was a full construction site just feet from the house. On the beach we were in clear view of the construction workers and we were bombarded by constant noise from circular saws and the bobcat being used to move earth. We were not able to use the home at all during the day from Monday-Saturday because of the noise. The owners offered us no warning of this construction and when asked for a partial refund they refused. They did offer a discount on a future stay but I am not the type of person who can afford to travel to the Caribbean often (especially with my young child), this was a once in a lifetime trip! I asked the foreman and he had told me they had been there for over a month. I find it hard to believe I was the first person to bring this to the owner’s attention. Very unprofessional and I would not recommend renting this home simply due to their lack of concern that their customer enjoy their stay. The ipod dock on the stereo did not work and the kitchen was dirty when we arrived (dirty bacon plate in the microwave and greasy fingerprints all over the refrigerator). The house also lacked certain items I would expect to be provided with a rental like a cutting board for preparing meals or a sponge for washing dishes. Pluses of the home were that the kayaks were a fun addition and the washer/dryer came in real handy. The bedroom/bathroom was comfortable and clean. Overall I saw the house as below average and is not a place I would vacation again. If you seek privacy I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere. The new construction is just feet away and is a huge 4 condo building. I expect more on vacation and the owner’s lack of compassion and concern is extremely disturbing.
Owner's Response: Due to the fact that we just learnt the construction of the one-story house and not a condominium, just began, we had no time to inform our last guest. The owner of the new house just completed a 12ft. high wall, that separates our house and the construction and gives complete privacy. You can see a picture of the fence on the website. The ocean is louder then the workers.

Because we gave a large discount due to the construction we felt it's unnecessary to give even more of a discount. For the same price you can rent one room at 2-star motel in South Florida. Sea Garden is a beachfront 3 bedroom private house. We have been in business for 15 years, and by looking at past reviews, anyone can see that guests have being very happy with the condition of Sea Garden. It is one of the most well liked homes on one of the most popular beaches in Exuma-Tar Bay. Because of the work being done next door, we are offering a great discount for this beautiful beachfront property. The house being built will be completed by Christmas.
