A perfect location with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

I visited with 4 of my good friends and we enjoyed the property so much! The view and private beach are indescribably perfect. Pictures don’t do it justice. The 5 of us had plenty of room with the downstairs bedroom. There were tons of books and puzzles available for rainy nights and sufficient cooking supplies.

Most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Hurricane Irma changed our plans from Anegada to Exuma. This was our 30th wedding anniversary and we were so set on the BVI and our expectations were low since we were so disappointed. We were so surprised! WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS ISLAND!!!!!!!!!! We will be back most likely in the next 6 months! The house was great for the 2 of us. The location was perfect. High tide had water at the bottom steps. We didn't even leave the house for a few of the days! The house was everything we needed. No AC needed. Leave the windows open and let the waves put you to sleep. Never even turned on the TV! Most relaxing vacation ever! Freddie very accommodating and you only see her when you need her.

Must do's - We rented a Jeep for the entire week - go exploring!

Williamstown - visit the bar there and the bakery.

Tropic of Cancer beach.

Straw Market.

Lobster Fishing - found a local that took us out for the day. Fed us for several meals!

Coastline day tour to see the pigs, sharks, iguanas

Water taxi to Stocking Island - Chat and Chill

Can't wait to return!

Best Place Ever For A Couple

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is awesome.

Location is perfect from the airport & Georgetown. Close to groceries, gas, booze, & restaurants. The house has everything you need to accommodate a week stay or longer. I cooked a lot at the house and never needed a thing (fully furnished). You literally have your own private beach. And you can walk the beach forever - I visited in October (off season) so I literally saw people walking the beach from other houses maybe once or twice. The sand is wonderful. Nice spacious deck to sun bathe and just a few steps down to the beach. The AC units work great but I highly recommend opening the windows & turn on the ceiling fans at night to enjoy the peaceful sleep from hearing the waves crash on the shore. The only that wasn’t right for me was the bed - was super firm for my taste but I’m used to a tempur pedic bed. Would be nice if they kept a nice after market foam cover for the bed in the closet for those that need a softer bed. Cable TV works but sometimes the it’s grainy but who cares, why are you watching TV when visiting Great Exuma.

Freddie who manages the property is the best. We loved her. This was my first visit to the Bahamas. I fell in love. I have no intention of going to any other Caribbean islands in the future. I see myself going back to Paradise Point every year for the rest of my life.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised. It's less than 5 minutes from the airport by car and is right on the beach. My 23 yr old daughter and I stayed 6 nights.

The kitchen has recently been renovated and the over all feel of the place is just great. Large windows to soak in the views of sunrises and sunsets plus all the wild life.

The 2nd bedroom downstairs with 2 beds is accessed from the rear of the house with it's own entrance from the outside. All rooms have window AC units which kept the place cool.

Freddie, the house keeper, was really great. She helped us with ideas to go around town or stores to get things. She also helped out with laundry. There's a washing machine in a small building just outside the house and it also has a shower. You hang your clothes to dry. Set your alarm for 1:00 am to see more stars than you can imagine.

A couple great places: Prime Island Meats and Deli is about 5 minutes down the road towards George Town. Great meats and grocery items.

The liquor store in George Town is the best place to buy liquor and beer. The "whole sale" beer place near the airport is more expensive with a much smaller selection.

Scotia Bank and Royal Bank of Canada are in George Town. Not many places take credit cards due to the fees so bring cash or get cash in town. Usually about $4.50 fee per transaction. US dollars are used interchangeably with Bahamian currency.

Stocking Island: has a great place called Chat and Chill where you can hang a t-shirt on the ceiling as a remembrance, get a conch salad by the water and feed sting rays out of your hand. Elvis will take you in the water taxi at the government wharf for $15.

A full day boat tour of the islands that includes: views of famous people's houses/islands; swimming with the pigs; swimming with nurse sharks; feeding iguanas; viewing a sunken drug plane and swimming into Thunder Ball Grotto made famous by the 007 movie. We loved "Four C's" tours. $180/person + $10 landing fee to swim with the sharks.

Santana's restaurant is on Little Exuma which is about a 35 minute drive from the house. Much worth it and you can stop by the salt pillar that talks about the history of the salt ponds.

Shirley's Fish Fry is also on the way to George Town and has great food.

The "hotel row" has a couple good bars on the water. Exuma Beach Resort has "Latitudes" that has great dancing music Friday nights.

We will definitely come back and stay here. Just a great experience all around!

A paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks with our two children. Frederika is very helpful and explained everything very friendly and was always there immediately for our questions. The house is located directly on the beautiful beach. A dream! It's all in the house, what you need. The view from the living room to the sea is indescribably great. The bedroom outside the house is much better than described in the past reviews. It has no sea view but a window and air conditioning and fan. You need a car to get anywhere. Foods are very expensive on exuma. We would always go back to this beautiful place.

Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home, well stocked kitchen, comfy setup, and good location on the island.

We would definitely recommend the home and stay again.

Our only slight grievance is that the welcome email gave a wrong gps point, so we had some trouble finding the place, and the owner only gives a home phone number which is almost never answered and has a full answering machine. There is a sign on the home, but you cannot see it from the road, so its easy to miss. It made our arrival a bit rocky, but once we found the home, it was amazing.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about the confusion with the directions. Homeaway does not allow me to modify the location of the home on their website, which is incorrect. When communicating with renters, typically we will send very detailed directions from the airport to the home. I also have the location from Google Earth available upon request.
