Spacious, Affordable but too far from Beach

We stayed at Casa Bonita Feb 6 – 21, 2014. I have to agree with many of the previous comments...although the house was large and, generally, clean there were some things that we found to be frustrating. The pantry was not well stocked. I did not expect a huge variety of things – but there wasn’t even any salt and pepper. (I asked the manager if she provided S&P, and she told me that we had to buy our own!) Those visitors who came after us benefitted from our grocery shopping for many basic items! Having only one small bowl to cook with was also inadequate. The description stated that there was a grill. We expected a propane outdoor bar bq...what we got was a bar bq that required charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid. Once again, I asked Lionella if briquettes and fluid were provided – she said “no”. We had to purchase our own (but, again, left some for the next visitors!) which was not as easy as it sounded – it took us 3 stops at 3 different grocery stores before we found lighter fluid and briquettes.
All of the above things were annoying and frustrating, but the one thing which determines why we will not return to Casa Bonita is the location. We have been to Exuma several times before this trip so we were aware of the general location of the house. We knew we would need a car to get around so that was not the issue. The issue is that the location is pinned incorrectly in the listing. This house is nowhere near the beach. The “oceanfront view” is from the corner of one of the upper windows. The location of the house should be pinned next to the highway, not one block in just off the beach. The walk to the beach is AT LEAST 5-7 minutes – about 3-4 city blocks and then down the rocky path. The price was reasonable – but, you get what you pay for. If you want to be near the beach, this house is not for you.
Owner's Response: Yes, the house is brand new and has a very spacious rooms in it. It is very reasonable for the location, Sandal's Resort is just around the conner. The house is one of the few private homes with the swimming-pool on the island. It is located 3-5 min. walk from the most private beach.
The Queen's Hwy is the main paved road on the island. It lays along the beach through the whole island. When you drive on it to George Town you see the ocean almost the whole time, that is where all the expensive houses located along the beach. So you do want to be close to the main road and the beach.
The house has a balcony and it has a view of the ocean. You can watch the sunrise over the water and sunsets from the balcony. We don't have a lot of houses in our beach community, which it makes more quiet and private.
In all the years of the rental services, we never provided food to the guests. The house is a turn-key house but without food. We do provide food shopping service by request.
We personally prefer charcole BBQ, since the gas one doesn't give a good taste to the food.
If you are lacking on any kind of dishes, then you can always call our manager, which is available 24/7 just a call away to get the necessary things for the house.

Great for large family getaway

The house was easy to find and clean upon arrival, true to the online pictures. What we liked the most was how spacious it is to accomodate a large group (we were seven). Towels and sheets were plenty, the suite bathroom is nicely done.
The good:
1) the grocery store is close to the house, which was comforting especially because there are only a few on the island. Prices are double or triple than back home. If you can, bring as many of your own necessities as possible.
2) the pool is great, especially to enjoy the afternoon sun with some cold beer, outside music and the quiet surroundings. The lounge chairs had new cushions and were well kept.
3) the beach is close and absolutely gorgeous. It's really a good 5 min walk. We barely saw anyone else during our stay. There are some rocks in the water, so wear booties.
4) we appreciated the wifi, especially because the TV had just a few air channels with little to watch. The quality was good, the kids were able to watch online movies
5) the airconditioning at the house was a blessing as it would sometimes get quite hot during the day
Some recommendations (and what we didn't like as much):
1) the kitchen was not well stocked, at least not for a large crowd. For example, there was only one large pot, four bowls and coffeecups, two small spoons, one wineglass, well you get the message. Lionella (the house keeper) was very nice and brought over a second pot and saladbowl, but we did have some trouble making dinner upon our arrival. Also, the fridge leaked all the time. Elena, if you please have it fixed and invest in some new kitchenware.
2) access to the beach may be difficult for older parents. The road is gravel and uneven going down to the beach. I had to hold my mom's hand close and all the time.
3) a car is a must if you don't want to feel isolated. Georgetown is 20 min away by car. Except for the beach, there's really nothing else close to the house.
4) there was no trash pickup during the entire week we were there. The trashbin outside accumulated ours as well as from prior stays and overflowed when we left, with flies and the smell telling us that most likely there hadn't been a pickup in weeks.

Overall, our vacation was one of the best. Casa Bonita was its price worth, so I would certainly recommend.

Great vacation

We stayed 8 nights at this property and were overall very happy with our experience. The owners from the first point of contact were very responsive and great to work with. We appreciated the FAQ and map to the house they sent prior to arrival. When we had a few minor issues upon our arrival including only finding three beach towels and the fridge leaking, after an email, the owners responded right away and the following day we found a lot more towels and the leak was a bit better. The house was clean on arrival and although we did encounter a few ants and cockroaches, we felt that this was to be expected. For the owners, we are not sure if there is any way to clean under the glass of the dining room table but there were a few dead bugs stuck there. The kitchen was fairly well stocked with utensils, pans etc. The grill outside was really nice to have and was how we cooked most of our meals. We would highly recommend going to Prime Island meats for a great selection and reasonable prices. The house was very spacious and it was nice to have the balcony and the outdoor seating areas. The master bathroom was great. There was plenty of space for clothes and suitcases. The beach nearby was very private as advertised though it did have more trash laying around than the other beaches we went to on the island. We timed the walk to the beach as 5 mins 30 sec to get there. If you have a lot of stuff such as beach umbrella, chairs, cooler etc, it is possible to drive closer and walk about a minute. The house came with two beach chairs which we really appreciated.

You definitely need a car on the island. The house is quite well located, close to Sandals and about a 20 min drive to Georgetown and a 10 minute drive to the airport. If you are driving to Georgetown or Little Exuma almost every day it can seem a bit far but it worked out pretty well for us as we enjoy the beaches on the north side of island as well.

Overall, this was a great rental property. Great owners, nice inside and out and a great price.

Beautiful home, amazing setting = memories

Olena the owner has stayed in contact with us since first making arrangements for staying at Casa Bonita. The price is far more affordable then any resort. The house was incredibly clean and organized upon our arrival. The house has everything you can need. The house is furnished with a modern sensibility and is very spacious. Even though it was just myself and my husband, a larger party would be very comfortable here. The pathway to the beach may be a little rugged for some, but the pay off is the most beautiful beach you may ever see. We spent most days at the beach and returned for late afternoon swims at the house. We did rent a car to fully enjoy the island. if you want to explore the issuanc island, I recommend a car. If you are looking for pure quiet and relaxation, this is the home for you. We were so comfortable here and look forward to another visit. This is a beautiful home in a beautiful location. This was our first true vacation as a married couple and I will treasure every moment of it thanks to the amazing setting. We are so lucky to have found Casa Bonita!
Owner's Response: Lydia,

Thank you for staying at Casa Bonita. We are looking forward seeing you again next year...

Great vacation away from cold!

We are a retired couple from Canada, and just stayed at Casa Bonita to get away from the cold in December. We had a great time on the island! The house was comfortable, clean and having a pool just to ourselves was a big plus. The area is very quiet and the short walk to the beach was very adventurous through the pass down the hill. The whole time during the week, we had nobody at the beach, which was nice to have our privacy and only listen to the sound of the waves.
We recommend to eat at “Big D’s”, short drive to the restaurant. The sea food was very fresh. Try fresh conch salad and cracked lobster dinner.
Pleasantly surprised we were with the “Catch-A-Fire” restaurant. They are located on the bay side of the island, so they had the most beautiful sunsets over the water. Live Bahamian music, dancing, good food was a big plus for the place. We are planing on our trip again.
Definitely recommend to others to stay at Casa Bonita, especially if you have a big family, it’s a very big house.
Owner's Response: So glad to hear you had a great time. Thank you for the good tips for the future guests about places to visit. Looking forward seeing you again.
Olena and Allen Webb.
