Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
One of the most beautiful places on earth! My husband and I have both been to different spots in the Caribbean and none of them come close to this place. The pictures do not do it justice. Henry's house sits on the most amazing bay (I don't really know what to call it) I have ever seen. At high tide it's a gigantic wading pool that feels like a spa. We brought floats and would relax in our giant "spa" for hours on end, admiring the beauty around us. We never got used to the view. Every morning my husband and I would wake up, look out of our bedroom door, and then at each other with a "Is this place for real?" look on our faces. It is breathtaking.

The house itself is immaculate as well. We stayed our first night in the Bahamas at a big resort in Nassau. Henry's place made the resort look like a dump. Henry did an excellent job with the finishes and decorations in the house. Everything we needed was already there and the house was impeccably clean.

Even though Henry was in Nassau for our stay, he was a wonderful host. He called every day to check in, and if we needed anything he would put us in touch with his assistant Santos, or his son, who were both on the island. Everyone bent over backwards to help us. Henry was also great about answering any questions we had in the planing stages of our vacation.

We rented a boat from Henry for the entire week we were there, something I would highly recommend. There is so much to see at the neighboring cays. We visited the iguanas, fed and swam with the pigs, swam with the sharks, went to the Land and Sea Park (what has to be some of the best snorkeling in the world), snorkeled at a sunken drug plane, held starfish, and visited a breathtaking sand bar. We had a guide take us out on the boat three days we were there, something I would also highly recommend. We tried to take the boat out ourselves one day, but the water is so clear it really messed with our depth perception. We couldn't tell if we were in water three feet deep or fifteen feet deep. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen. The guides will teach you how to "read the water" and also the best route to take through the cays.

In summary, this was by far the best vacation ever! I've wanted to visit places in the South Pacific for the longest time, but no more. I can't imagine them being anymore beautiful than the Exumas. Not to mention there is so much to do and see! I think I could've stayed a year and not seen everything the Exumas have to offer!

Taking a break from the big city

This is the second time we have stayed in Black Point at Henry's and loved it!! We love his new house and the porch overlooking the Carribean is perfect. Aside from the standard amenities (i.e stove) the house comes with the golf cart, has a phone line in the bedroom to call back to the states., Wifi, a wasther/dryer, grill and kayak. Our little toddler (21 months old) loved the house and enjoyed running around the porch. What sets the Exumas apart from Nassau is that the Exumas are very safe, everyone is super friendly the customs stop was only 20 minutes long and there is so much to see in the Exumas. We flew via Watermakers (which we love) , Raymond "Bread Boy" picked us up at Staniel to take us over to Black Point (10 minute boat ride) and then we used Rayomond for two half days to show us around the Exumas. The Carribbean ocean in this area is very safe and shallow for little ones. We brought a floatie with a cover for our little one and she had a good time relaxing in the water!! We did bring food with us and picked up some extra snacks, ice cream and sodas at Adderly's. Everyone is so nice on the island and so accomadating. Every body knows everybody on the island and it was so nice to get away from the busy life in the states.
