The Best Vacation Spot In The World
Ida is super nice she picked us up from airport took us to her beautiful cottage. Heaven on earth!! Best Hospitality! She was on point with timing and everything!! Hope to come back soon!! Love & Blessings!!
We absolutely loved our stay in the cottage and on black point! Ida is a wonderful host and Perry is an absolute must tour guide to the iguanas, pigs & sharks. Would definitely come again!
Great Island, Great Cottage
My family of three stayed for a week and loved everything. The beach and bay is amazing, and Ida organized a boat and captain for us one day that took us to see the Iguanas, Pigs, nurse sharks, Thunderball Grotto and a few other areas. We can not wait to visit again!
Black Point was the best part of our vacation in the Bahamas
Ida was a perfect host who turned our vacation into a worry free stay in paradise. This island is off the beaten path and we took a Flamingo Air flight from Nassau to get there. Nearby Staniel Cay was nice when we had lunch there one day but not nearly the island vibe Black Point has.
Ida had met us at the “airport” (more like an airstrip) on black point and took us to our cottage and made sure we had all we needed (including golf cart rental and boat/guide rental one of the days). This island is small and with limited eating selections but call ahead or “reservations” which is more like letting them know your coming for dinner. Everyone on the island was friendly and genuinely so. The cottage was clean and well air conditioned with decent WiFi and had a blender (get your rum in the duty free shop in Nassau). The beach on the east side of the island is an absolute must. I’ve never been to such a pristine white sand beach without a soul in sight. So glad we did this, best way to see the neighboring islands including pig beach. Our other stay in Nassau’s Atlantis was posh but was far too crowded and touristy for my likes. Black Point however is a gem - go before it gets commercialized.

Great vacation and would love to return.
June 2018. This cottage is on a remote island; but, it is just a short 10-15 min. boat ride to Staniel Cay. If you want truly private beaches and down time this is the place for you. I was on this trip with my husband and 18 yr. old daughter. We rented a golf cart for our entire stay and is all you need to get around the island. There are only 3 named roads and some "paths" accessible by golf cart to private beaches. There are 4 restaurants and 4 very small grocery stores. We were able to get everything we needed there, although prices are high as everything has to be shipped to the island. We rented a boat and guide one day and paid attention, as we planned to rent just a boat another day. Cottages are clean and well kept, and if you have a problem, Ida will handle it. She was able to provide us with a marine radio and navigation charts the day we took the boat out alone. I loved learning about daily life on the island and everyone was welcoming and willing to share their stories. We never felt unsafe on the island.
If I could do it again the only thing I would change is 1. bringing our own snorkel gear or renting from Ida for our entire stay- we missed out on this our first day; 2. GoPro or waterproof camera is a must! 3. Visit the open "aquarium" at the national park - I learned of this too late to get there. 4. snorkel at the plane crash site 5. visit sandbars-this can only been done at low tide so we missed timing due to other activities.
Things we did do: swim with pigs, feed iguanas, swim with sharks, snorkel at Thunderball gratto, hangout on private beaches, kayak, collect shells & sand dollars, learn about island life.
