Beautiful place with some shortcomings
Submitted: April 27, 2013
Stayed: April 2013
We stayed at Harbour view in April and were well received by its owners, Don and Gail. The house has 2 floors and they rent the top. The house has a good location and it's 15 minutes from George Town way to Little Exuma (definitely we recommend a car for getting around the island). Harbour View is also close to 2 of the best beaches in the exumas, Tropic of Cancer Beach and Pretty Molly Bay. The space they rent of the house consists of a spacious bedroom with a queen size bed and English style furniture, and has a window overlooking the sea and the cays, but does not have any kind of curtain, something really unexplainable, the sun makes you wake up at 6 AM. Also the room has a large and well decorated bathroom, air conditioning which makes noise and it's a bit annoying to sleep at night. There is a another room that can be a dining room with a kitchen in which we find a refrigerator, a microwave and electric oven, but no stove making it difficult to prepare several meals. Also in the room is a small TV and small dining table 90 x 45 cms. approx. with 3 chairs, there is another bathroom attached to this room. You can also find a bookcase with several books and the owners have prepared a folder with everything you can do on the island.
The house has a terrace which can be used by the guests with breathtaking open views of the sea and the cays, really spectacular. You can also use the kayak and reach Moriah Cay and Man o War Cay which are just meters from the house, we recommend the beaches and one can be truly alone (use sunscreen 30 or 50 because the sun is terrible there).
The negative aspects were: the lack of curtains in the bedroom, the lack of stove in the kitchen, lack of washing and drying machines, the lack of a telephone for local calls and air conditioning noise in the bedroom.
Don and Gail are kind people, they like to talk and try to advise the best possible, they should try to correct these points to enhance the stay of the guests.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation. With regard to your negative aspects I would point out that our property description clearly states that we do not provide a stove, a washing machine or a dryer. Our air conditioning does have a "sleep" setting which reduces the sound for peaceful sleep, maybe you missed it.
