10* would be more accurate!
Fina's slice of paradise is better than advertised! We travel quite a bit and it's amazing when you find something that exceeds your expectations. The view is even better in person and the pictures are older & improvements have been made (if that was possible)! The deck is larger than the main photo - the interior design is beautiful & cottage styled & makes you feel like you are at home. The kitchen & home have everything you could ever imagine. The two of us stayed 4 days & found it incredibly hard to leave.
There are ample cooking supplies, bathing towels, beach towels. bedding, etc.
There are snorkles to use, coolers, even extra sun hats that came in handy on the kayaks.
Bugspray - the "no-see-ums" are mosquito like little bugs that come out at night.
Water shoes- they came in very handy for me when we walked across at low tide.
We arrived on a Sunday - stores do close earlier but we stopped by Smitty's which is 10min or so from the airport --- there is a liquor store next door as well.
We rented a suzuki swift & handled the very bumpy roads like a champ! Follow Fina's recommendations for food/drink & you will NOT be disappointed. We loved every spot!
Just before Santana's is another bar Tropic Breeze Beach Bar & Grill... they have a beach down below the patio, walk around the rock and it is all yours! It was incredible & we had lunch/drinks after our swim!
-Some roads may be intimidating but just take your time! We made it & did not get a flat!
-Use one of the coolers and throw some ice & drinks in the back of your trunk...when you get to a beach or find and incredible spot, you will want one and to save a few $.
-Water is highest at Fina's early am.... make sure you get out and snorkle with the fish pets :)
Tropic of Cancer was breathtaking but there is another smaller beach near Forbes Hill that we stopped at ...here we had the beach all to ourselves and swam with hundreds of beautiful fish.
Every person we encountered was incredibly friendly and very helpful! Her house across the street looks beautiful as well and would be a great spot to share with friends or family.
***flight home with Delta.
We were scheduled 1:15pm departue
Delta ap advised that check-in was at 12:15 we arrived at 12:10 to no staff at booth & could not board - not enough room to explain what happened but arrive 2 hrs before your flight to be safe. 7 ppl were denied boarding and the plane left 20min early.
Thank you for such an incredible review! Wow, can’t believe that about your flight home, sorry to hear! Hope you come back again, the fish and sunsets will be waiting! 🌞🇧🇸🌴
After a week in paradise it would tough to come back to the real world today... This island is awesome, locals are as kind as anything I have ever been to in the last 20 years. Food, fishing, beaches and the WATER will rock your socks!
Fina's house is the perfect location you can be to the North side and south side in 30 mins from the house. House was great plenty of space for the kids next time, the dock was our morning sitting spot for breakfast everyday. We went to the island across the water and it was so cool to be at a spot were no one else would bother you. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to come here, you may find houses that are cheaper but watch out, cheaper is not always worth the savings in Exuma. Value wise you will not get anything better!
Beautiful vacation week
Home is as it appears and is very comfortable. It sits on bonefish flats and we walked and kayaked to island out front. The road in is bumpy but well worth the bumps.We didn't have trouble with bugs. We really liked the visits from Scoobie, he's very well behaved. We would definitely come back. Thanks Fina
Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We certainly hope you come back again. Hugs from Seabiscuit and family
A great location for a couple to rest by the sea and flats.
Pictures cannot do it justice. It is a place to rest, recover and rejuvenate.
My wife and I stayed at Seabiscuit for our anniversary. The house was just as described and had everything we needed. The views from the deck are nothing short of spectacular. Fina was very helpful in providing information about the house, activities on the island, restaurants and places to visit both prior to arrival, and during our trip. She was quick to respond to any question or need. I cannot say enough about her hospitality and beautiful property. This was our first time to Exuma and will not be our last. Thank you Fina for allowing us to enjoy your piece of paradise!
Oh I'm so glad you had such a wonderful stay and we hope you come back again soon! We're always happy to help!
Fantastic Home, everything you could need
My family and I had the most amazing time at Seabiscuit. It was our first trip to Exuma, and while there is much to see and explore on the island we would've been content to never leave home. We snorkeled out back as much as we could. So much fun exploring and watching the many fish. Kayak at low tide out to the island and explore! Fina, you are a wonderful hostess. I only wish we could've met in person. You were so patient and quick to answer all of my questions. We made so many great memories. Seabiscuit has many amenities, we were set in case we forgot something! I can't forget the view, stunning!! It was very difficult to leave but we we'll be back one day.
Awwwww thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you back soon!
