Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the stay in Exuma. We have been travelling around all oceansbut this island has really a particular geographic position - only 300 miles from USA but you feel like in a castaway island. Thanks for hospitality, we hope one day to come back and see you again.

In French for Bill: Un endroit et des geus merveilleux. Super.

We loved our relaxing vacation at Bill & Judy's. They were very hospitable! The apartment was impeccable! Very clean and organized! We were met at the airport and escorted to our home for the week. The location of the apartment couldn't have been better! Just minutes from the airport and just a short drive to town and local restaurants. Muffin & Lady were great too!

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Bahamas for our summer family vacation and then I started researching various accommodations. Beachside and having a pool were on the wish list as well as at least 3 bedrooms and hopefully a games room with a ping pong table. I must have looked at hundreds of accommodations before I found Dillycrab Beach House on the island of Great Exuma. It was exactly what I had hoped to find. I have described it as the quintessential Beach House vacation property. The pictures show the reason that everyone comes to the Bahamas - that extraordinary turquoise water, and I have to say the beach in front of Dillycrab was the most beautiful I have ever seen. It was really our own private beach as we saw maybe 3 people the whole 10 days we were there. The manager, Judy, was great. She bought some groceries for us because we arrived rather late on our first day. She was waiting for us at the airport, took our luggage and answered every question. She was around if we needed her but not at all obtrusive.

One of the reasons we wanted to come to Exuma was the famous Pig Beach. On a full day excursion we went to their island, which was an absolute highlight of our trip. Snorkelling in the Thunderbolt grotto, seeing the iguanas, sharks and sand bars and famous people's islands/villas was a whole day of fun. We also visited Stocking Island and Santana's restaurant. I have to admit that Santana's was a big disappointment. However we really enjoyed the food at La Fourchette and Grand Isle Resort. We cooked at home as well and bought groceries in Georgetown. Everything is pretty expensive.

Everything at Dillycrab showed a thoughtfulness for guests. Instructions were clear but not overwhelming and everything from bedding to beach and bath towels to dish ware was top quality. There were soaps, shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms (2 bathrooms which was great with 2 teens), essentials in the kitchen, DVDs and books, really cool low beach chairs and of course the water sports toys- paddle boards and kayaks. Our favourite part of the house was the huge outdoor living room/terrace and hammock (which we all took turns on). It seemed that the owners really thought of everything a guest might ask or need and it was all available in the Information binder.

We really had an absolutely fantastic time and would love to come back again. Dillycrab was luxurious but at the some time casual and relaxed. We would recommend Dillycrab to others.

What an amazing place to visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to the Dilly Crab Ranch in August with our 3 children. (25, 22 ,18) We loved Exuma and Dilly Crab. We have been to Abaco and Paradise Island and wanted to see a new island this time. The water is beautiful here. The house is clean and so well equipped. We loved the pool and the area all around it. The beach is so close and so beautiful. The water is clear and calm and the sand is lovely. There was no one on the beach the whole time we were there. It is like you are on a private island. We did the boat tour with 4 C's and it was amazing. Andrew the captain was so informative and so fun. We saw so many of the other Cays. The water is just so beautiful out there. It was really helpful to have Judy next door. She gave us great recommendations for dinner and tours. We went to Santanas one day and that was fun too. The lobsters were fresh and huge. The game room is a great feature at this house and she has a lot of work out equipment. There are about 100 DVD's to choose from also. There were some board games too. There are beach chairs and some pool toys. The one thing we needed were rafts for the pool. There are blow dryers in both bathrooms and lots of towels. The people on the island are so friendly and helpful. We also went to the straw market one day and the fish fry. It is a beautiful island to visit with stuff to do and plenty of restaurants to eat at . I would highly recommend Judy's place because it is on a great stretch of beach and the pool is fabulous. :) Hope to get back here someday. !!! Thanks for all of your help.
