another perfect week
Stayed here again this year. Place is wonderful and Ida always great and helpful. Definitely need to rent a boat for at least a few days to explore. If her son is around he is a great captain. If there during lobster season must ask to go out with Captan Ran (aka conch guy).
Views are amazing. IDA was helpful and friendly. we had a wonderful time.
The cottage was perfect. Had everything that we needed. The sunset views were amazing. Ida is a wonderful host. Definitely do a day excursion to see the swimming pigs, sharks and iguanas.
Black point is peaceful and serene the people are very friendly. We had an amazing week.
Thank you Ida.
Gorgeous location, quiet and private
It was a bit of a culture shock when we first arrived at Blackpoint (some crumbling houses among nicer ones, tiny grocery stores, no bank/ATM, credit cards not accepted everywhere, and restaurants needing reservations for breakfast and dinner). One day the power went out 3 times on the island, but apparently that is not uncommon, and it returns within 1/2 an hour. Running water also ceases during outages, so have bottled available. Despite all of this, we fell in love with the place and would not hesitate to return. The people are so friendly! Once we figured out how everything worked, we were quite comfortable. Ida's cottage was very clean and comfortable, and nicely decorated. Everything worked, except for the wifi. It was broken, but the repairman was on vacation, so we had to go to Lorraine's Cafe for internet all week. (Not a bad thing. Lorraine's is a terrific place! And it forced us to stay off our phones and enjoy the surroundings) The views were absolutely stunning! The beach on the Caribbean Sea side was a short walk down steps (not suitable for those with mobility problems). The water was warm and clear and usually very calm. When the tide goes out, you do have to walk out a bit to reach the water, but the sand is so soft and beautiful! The beach on the Atlantic side was a rougher walk, but very interesting to explore. You will want to rent a golf cart to go into town or explore the island as these cottages are a bit farther from town, which is why they are so quiet and private. In fact, we never had to share a beach with any other people the entire week we were there! If you arrive with an open mind and friendly attitude, you will love your time here! Be sure to take one of the private guided boat tours as well. They are worth every penny!
PARADISE AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
From the moment I booked the cottage Ida Patton was so responsive and so sweet in making sure to meet our expectations. When we arrived Ida greeted us with open arms and we felt like family the rest of our stay. The cottage could not be in a more picturesque surrounding. You have the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic on the other, what else could you ask for in a vacation cottage!! We had everything we could possibly need in our cottage. It was not only neat as a pin but decorated beautifully. We wanted to fish, snorkel and explore the islands while we were there so the first day Ida set us up with her son. He was the perfect guide/captain/gentleman! He took us to all of the Islands that had something unique to offer. We were going to rent a boat ourselves but not knowing the area, we thought it best to hire a captain. Ida recommended Captain Ron. He was one of the best captains I have ever seen! We had more lobster, conch, stone crab and a variety of fish than we could possibly eat! In fact, we gave most of it away. I cannot say enough good things about our stay in Black Point!! I have traveled the Bahamas and the Caribbean for many years and this by far is at the top of our list!! Everyone on the Island were fantastic and truly grateful that we were there. We are already planning another trip in a few months. We cannot stay away!!!! Thank you to all the wonderful people on Black Point and especially to Ida Patton for making everything perfect!!! We love you all!!!
