OUR BEST OUT ISLAND TRIP EVER!

  • 5 of 5
If you’re reading this, you probably understand the realities of Out Island life: food stocks are hit & miss, restaurants & stores are sometimes open & often closed for no known reason, & you can’t equate spectacular natural beauty with luxury living at this price point. Nonetheless, we’re delighted to recommend Raymond & Ulrisa’s rentals in Black Point, Exuma. You can watch the sun rise from the hammock on your front porch – & see it set from your back porch. That alone makes this wonderful home worth the price of admission!

Though Raymond was very busy with his businesses, he was always accessible to answer questions & point us in the right direction. He got us a great guide, Ralph, though we would have enjoyed having Raymond’s hands-on touch as some of the other reviewers did. Ulrisa made us a lovely dinner one night & we ended our week with a visit to their home on our final evening in Black Point.

We had a boat for the week – a great idea if you like to explore. We brought a small GPS loaded with Bahamas charts, had an orientation trip with Ralph to mark key waypoints like the swimming pigs, Thunderball Grotto, & the Exuma Land & Sea Park, and afterward we had the confidence to push our limits & explore 3 hours north & enjoy some of the uninhabited beaches nearby.

The house was clean & well-appointed. Raymond & Ulrisa kept our golf cart charged & ready to go. Everything in the house was in good working order. The beach out back was a great place to float the hours away & there were several vantage points nearby to enjoy superb sunsets. The star shows were spectacular, with the Milky Way clearly visible overhead. The small bluff brought constant nighttime breezes, so bugs weren’t a problem.

The settlement of Black Point, 5 minutes away, was charming & welcoming, so long as you don’t expect air conditioned restaurants or stocked supermarkets. The government dock is a great place to just hang out.

There were a few things that we would be willing to pay more for on a subsequent visit: A decent night’s sleep was hard to come by on the hard bed, the dive ladder on the boat was a challenge, & access to the laundry facilities was limited to when the larger rental house was vacant. But NONE of that took away from one of the best vacations ever.

If you want a vacation where the occasional comprise yields priceless memories & spectacular scenery, rent from Raymond & Ulrisa and adopt Black Point, Exuma as your island home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to right this review. It was a pleasure meeting such beautiful people. We are pleased to know the good and not so good pinpoints on your vacation. In regards to the laundry facilities, a new washer and dryer was already purchased for the new wash room in order for all guests to have access to them. Although this will be the first complaint about the softness of the bed mattress, new mattresses or soft comfortable padding will be purchased as well in order to try to get the bed as comfortable as possible. All of the restaurants have airconditioning but am guessing that they prefer to use the fresh island breeze :) Take care and we do wish to have you return in the future :) God bless.

BEST BEACH EVER! Most beautiful water, coolest islands, nicest people, the perfect holiday adventure

  • 5 of 5
BOOK IT!
You have found it! This is the lost paradise you have been looking for! The worlds coolest beach in front of perfect accommodations hosted by the most beautiful helpful people (Raymond and Ulrisa will become your new best friends!) in the heart of a remote stretch of volcanic and white sand islands, set in the most amazingly clear neon blue water. We have been searching for the perfect vacation for most of our lives. The 6 of us, ages 2 to 70, have all found it, here!

Our 2 year old daughter just learning to swim wanted to live day and night on this perfect beach. A huge area of soft white coral sand scattered with shallow puddles of hot water during low tide, and bathtub warm water up to her shoulders during high tide. It is the most perfectly safe fun relaxing place to be with a toddler. Mom did yoga every day either on the beach or on one of the beautiful stand up paddle boards Raymond and Ulrisa provide along with 3 kayaks skim boards and floating loungers. Grandma explored played swam read paddled tanned and loved every minute of it.

On the opposite end of the adventure scale, my dad and I had the time of our lives! Yes the beach is the most awesome of all the beaches we have ever seen, but the adventure we found on the other islands and out on the water was equally as perfect. We rented a boat from Raymond (Breadboy, the most wonderful helpful friend you will ever meet) and we used it for fishing, snorkelling/diving, spear fishing, exploring and sightseeing. David (Fatcat) who like Raymond grew up here and is the nicest man you will ever meet, guided us on so many perfect adventures in the boat I can't remember them all. He taught us how to run the shallow waters, fish, hunt conch, explore and sightsee.
My dad, 69, loves to fish, and we were never skunked! Whether we were catching bone fish right in front of our beach (we call it our beach cuz we were the only ones on it) or hooking big game fish from the boat in the Atlantic, we were always having the time of our lives.

My 18 year old daughter had so much fun joining all of us in everything from yoga and sandcastles to fishing and diving she didn't even notice she was the only teen.

We can't say enough good about this place or the hosts to explain the wonder and beauty it has, or the fun and happiness it provided for us all.
Thank you again Raymond and Ulrisa, we will never forget you...
cause we're coming back forever!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I own a timeshare in Aruba that we vacation every other year. On the years we don't go to Aruba, we like to travel other places. This was one of those years. Of all places, I found Exuma Cayes on Twitter. I googled it and one of the sites was this ad. We read all of the reviews and based on that we booked it. I am SO glad we did! Of all of the places we've traveled (Turks, Cayman, Maui, Cozumel) including Aruba, this was and is THE best place we've been!! It is a perfect place to unhook, unwind, and disconnect. We stayed in the green house and it fit 5 people (one of the sons had to sleep on the couch though). We spent our time reading on the upper deck chairs facing the bay. When the tide went out, we packed a cooler, took the floaties that were provided, and had the biggest beach all to ourselves. One of the days, Breadboy took us on a grand tour of all of the sights and locations. The trip was great. We did everything that everyone else has mentioned and experienced the same great hospitality they did. One of the days, we took the golf cart to King's Beach. We had the entire beach to ourselves; not another soul to be seen. The beach was like flour, the water was warm and absolutely beautiful. Breadboy was a great host, tour guide, and neighbor (he lives right next door). He goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need, are enjoying your trip, and to see if there is anything he can do. His quote to me, which depicts the type of person and service he provides: "Mike, your stress is my stress. Don't worry about it; I will take care of everything" and he did. As with the previous few posters, we didn't get a chance to meet Ulrisa; she was still in Nassau. I've spoken to her on the phone and by email. She was just as helpful and am sure she would have been even more if she was there. She took care of all of the groceries, the rentals, etc. You are in great hands with these two people. The only other regret is that we were not able to properly say good-bye to our new friend Breadboy. While waiting for the plane, he ran back to the house to get business cards but didn't make it back before we took off. Breadboy and Ulrisa - thanks for all that you did for us to make it the perfect vacation. This island is a hidden gem! I know that Breadboy would like to see more tourists but, selfishly, I don't want that to happen. I want to keep this secret all to ourselves. Next year is our Aruba vacation but will definitely be back in 2016!

A Perfect Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
I promised my wife(who is South American) that if she agreed to live in the Midwest with me, I would be sure to take her to the Caribbean once a year. So, we've been to Aruba, Barbados, Costa Rica, St. Thomas/St. John's and the Cayman Islands over the years. This year we went to Exuma and it's the best place we've found yet….in fact, it's difficult to imagine any place topping it! We were able to completely decompress and relax. The local folks are very friendly, the island very safe and quiet(some days we were the only foreigners on the island). Breadboy took us on a grand tour one day where our kids enjoyed snorkeling at "the aquarium"(more tropical fish than we saw in Maui by-far!), waded among 15-20 nurse sharks(don't worry, they're not interested in humans!), saw the Sperm Whale skeleton and snorkeled in the James Bond Thunderball grotto, as well as numerous other great reef locations. We enjoyed the cool breezes and shade of the front porch, perfect for reading, playing cards and dominoes or relaxing in the hammock…while listening to the beautiful sound of the Atlantic waves less than 100 yards away. In the back is a great bayside deck where we watched our kids kayak and search for shells….the water never deeper than 3 feet at high tide. Our only regret is that we weren't able to meet Ulrisa(who is recovering from having a baby recently), she certainly has a fine husband and sons, who we consider to be heart-felt friends.

Exceptional Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in Raymond and Risa's yellow cottage, and I can't say enough how wonderful our vacation was! We came with our 12 and 15 year old girls, and really had no idea what it would be like. We were speechless when we arrived and saw how beautiful the location of these cottages is. The girls spent every morning in the water and running around the sand of this magical harbor. Afternoons were spent with Raymond or David on the boat until we were confident enough to take one of the Boston Whalers out on our own (which we did for the remainder of our trip). Raymond and Risa took care of everything for us, and answered every question we had. We were happy we had ordered water, beer and gatorade through them, and also glad we took their advice to fill a cooler up with food in Nassau (things that the local grocery store wouldn't have, like fresh fruit/veg and meat). We loved eating out in the village, and purchasing bread daily from Lorraine's mother. Every person we met in town was so friendly and welcoming. The unbelievable natural beauty of this area and the warmth of the people here made this vacation one of a kind. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you Raymond and Risa!!

This Vacation Rental is situated in the small, quiet, peaceful community of Black Point, Exuma Cays, Bahamas. Five miles south of Staniel Cay, Exuma.

Surrounded by clear, tranquil, aquamarine waters and beautiful untouched beaches, we offer you a much slower pace from the everyday hectic lifestyle of the city. You can enjoy nature to its fullest. You can book a boat tour from us, to visit the Exuma Land and sea park, swim with nurse sharks, see the Iguanas or the swimming pigs, swim in the world famous Thunder Ball Gratto or go to a place where the fish can eat right out your hands. You can even rent a boat or Jet Ski's and just go out for a romantic lunch on one of the many pristine untouched beaches or sand bars through out the surrounding Cays. If you choose to just do absolutely nothing, you can lay back and enjoy the sun rise and set over the crystal clear waters from the privacy of your bungalow.

There are local restaurants where you can take a short golf cart ride down the street to enjoy some native Bahamian dishes. If you choose to eat in, you can make it special with your very own fresh catch of snapper, grouper (seasonal), lobster (seasonal) etc from an exciting fishing trip. Also there are a few small local stores where you can pick up a few basic items. If you have a large order just send your grocery list and we'll do the shopping for you. It is recommend that you bring your favorite 'must have along with you. So come on down and enjoy all that we have to offer!
