Our trip was perfect, primarily because of the FANTASTIC location of this house. It is situated on the stunning Exuma blue/turquoise waters of Hoopers Bay. We visited during mid February when it can be windy on Exuma, though still warm and sunny ( High 70's to 80 F for our entire week), but since we were bringing our 3 year old we wanted to avoid large waves so we could play in the water as a family. Hoopers Bay turned out to be the perfect refuge, and we played in the water without fear of being knocked over while trying to teach our son to enjoy swimming. We also took turns snorkeling just a small walk down the beach to try to swim with the green turtles who make the calm waters of the bay their home. Though we saw them everyday, it wasn't until our final day that we were able to actually get a chance to swim among them. We were in the water with them for over an hour, and they let us interact by swimming near us, and coming to inspect us up close. They actually seemed to want to play! Without this location we would have never been able to have this experience. It took quite a few tries and it would not have been practical to keep returning to this spot in hopes of catching them. Also, the cottage was literally just steps to the beach, and waking up and having to just put on a swimsuit to go sit on the beach without having to pack everything and the kitchen sink was bliss. You know what I'm talking about if you have ever traveled with a toddler. The cottage itself was comfortable and clean. It had everything you would need for a short stay. It had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, an efficiency kitchen and a small supply of kitchen essentials. This too was so helpful. We were able to keep our sons breakfast/lunch and nap routine because we didn't have to go in search of a restaurant for every meal. We brought a few non perishable items from home in the way of snacks and basics because the prices on the island are so high. We supplemented with things purchased at the local markets. We ate over half our meals at the cute and private outdoor dining area attached to our little cottage. Betty and Peter had everything perfectly organized and were amazing hosts. Their responses to all inquiries were prompt and very helpful. Peter was charming and a wonderful wealth of info for the island, as well as just a nice guy. We also rented their car for the week, which I recommend to be able to see the rest of the beautiful island. Already looking at next year!!
