Our stay at Udensville Exuma

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a ten night stay at this villa we have spent the last six years holidaying in Exuma usually twice a year. This is the first time we have stayed at Udensville and it is by far the most superior accommadation we have stayed in. The owners Larraine & Brian are really friendly and helpful but not invasive. The spacious apartment is very comfortable, clean and beautifully presented as well as being ideally located on a gorgeous beach. I would have no doubts about staying at this property again, if you are looking for a holiday in paradise then this is it. Sheree & Martin February 2009

AMAZING View, Location and accomodations!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Exumas, so we really didn't know where the best location to stay would be. We are so very thankful we chose Udensville!! It is truly the best location on the entire Island. The water is absolutely breathtaking right out the back door, about 25 steps away! This is a large 2 bedroom house with tons of room for unpacking your suitcase and making it feel like home. The glass bottom kayaks are very fun, and right there for you to use. We rented a car through Don's car rentals, and traveled from the far South tip of the Island, to the far North tip. We visited several beaches, including Three Sisters & Tropic of Cancer.... while they are no doubt, beautiful..... the beach right out the back door of Udensville was the prettiest! Larraine was super easy to work with while booking, and answered all questions we had prior to arrival within a few hours via email. We ate out several times, but our two favorite places were Shirley's in the Fish Fry area, and Big D's..... up the road past Sandals. Big D's had the BEST fresh Conch salad! Lobster at Shirley's was super delicious! We are already looking at our calendar to re-book Udensville.

There were plenty of towels, beach towels, linens, pool toys, floats, umbrellas, pots and pans, etc! Larraine and Brian seriously thought of everything!!

The one thing we forgot was bug spray. There are little pesky flying critters that bite like mosquitos, but they are not mosquitos. They came out after dark.... all over the Island.

Do yourself a favor and book the full day boat tour while in the Exumas! We booked through Sugars and it was great..... although I hear they are all good! It was $$$ well spent! Swimming Pigs, Thunderball Grotto, Staniele Cay, etc!

Thank you again Larraine and Brian! We had the time of our life there.....

Best Rental so far

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th time in Exuma and every time I have rented a different house. The reviews on this place are 100% accurate. I first want to thank Larraine as she was informative and responded in a timely manner making booking very easy. Next, unlike some of the other homes I have rented, the AC always worked and worked well, the internet was fast and the house was literally spotless. We did not have a problem with any of the appliances and nor were there any mildew or mold issues. To top it off, the beach is gorgeous and the outdoor deck made the whole thing worthwhile. I give Udensville a 10 and would recommend it to anyone coming to Exuma. Thanks Larraine!!!

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Beachfront Property is an appropriate name for this listing. We were delighted to have been able to stay at Udensville for one week, with another couple. The apartment was well represented in the online pictures as it is well maintained and very clean.

Brian and Larraine were wonderful hosts, available when we needed them, otherwise not the least bit bothersome. Brian arranged a car rental for us for a couple of days and was very helpful in providing tips on locations to visit.

The kitchen was well stocked with all necessary cooking materials. The apartment is very spacious and truly within a few feet of the beach. We enjoyed the deck overlooking the water and did use the kayaks one day. We truly recommend a stay at this lovely home.

Brian & Larraine, thank you for your hospitality and a wonderful stay on your property.

Regards,

The Allains & the Whites,

Sun, Sand and a WONDERFUL time!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to stay at Udensville, but not our first time to Tar Bay and the Exumas. We think Tar Bay is the best beach on the island and Udensville WAS BY FAR THE BEST SPOT ON THE BEACH. Lorraine and Brian are extraordinary hostess and host. They make your stay is unforgettable and we had the opportunity of making new friends with them. They offer you your complete privacy, but are always there if you need them. The house is very comfortable, exceptionally clean and suited all our purposes. We especially enjoyed the sun deck and gazebo and used them every day! We will definitely go back to Udensville.!! Can't wait to see Lorraine and Brian again - they are wonderful people.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled all over the world, and usually stay in small inns or villas. This was by far the most perfect accommodation ever! The pictures on the website don't do it justice. The location is incredible....on a pristine stretch of absolutely perfect beach. The house is spotless. Brian and Larraine are dream hosts...there when you need anything, but completely respectful of your privacy. Can't say enough good things...go, go!
