About Mavis Hall

My name is Mavis Hall. I was born in Herefordshire, England and now live near Manchester.

Mavis Hall purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Mavis Hall chose Exuma

I first visited the island in 2007 with my husband and we enjoyed it so much we bought a property there. The white, sandy, almost deserted beaches were something we had never experienced before. We fell in love with the easy going, laid back lifestyle of the island and the friendliness of the Bahamian people.

What makes this townhome unique

We chose this property because it had been just completed to a high standard. The rooms were spacious and airy and well appointed. The villa is next to the beach with spectacular panoramic views from the balcony. It is only one mile from Georgetown where groceries etc can be purchased.

We just returned from a two week vacation at Mavis's villa. There was 4 adults and one child, plenty room for all. The villa layout is great with the bedrooms on the ground floor and main living on the second floor. It was very clean and furnished beautifully. Kingsley was a great help, arranging a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us back for our return. The internet was very hit and miss during the two weeks, but the whole island was having problems. we made use of the kitchen facilities, although dishes and utensils are a little sparse, could really use a re-stock. Mavis was excellent to book with, gave us lots of tips about the island. The only major complaint we had was booking through Bahamasair for our connecting flight, delays, delays, delays. We were told by some locals they are famous for that. We planned to spend the day in Nassau and show our grandson the sights, but due to last minute delays, we were not able to go into Nassau before our flight home. We were all VERY DISAPOINTED😢� We certainly would return, but maybe only for one week. Jolly beach was our favourite, pretty much just our party and maybe one or two couples on the beach the whole time. This beach takes your breath away when you climb the little hill and cross the road and see it for the first time! We would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and for drawing attention to the depletion of the kitchen equipment. I will certainly ask my property manager to check this and replace items where necessary. It is important that guests who are in a self catering villa have the necessary equipment. I am sorry that the Internet reception was not good. Exuma does have problems with the Internet. Normally our wifi reception is excellent. I'm glad you enjoyed Jolly Hall beach. It is a beautiful beach and is only a five minute walk from our villa if you approach it along Palm Bay beach and then another beach. It is just one of many beautiful beaches on the island. We would be very happy for you to stay in our villa again.

Clean, comfortable Villa on the most beautiful island ever.

  • 5 of 5

Mavis was great in assisting with planning, coordinating, and in giving advice and tips.

The villa is nothing fancy but has everything you need--some minor things were not working (one of the showers light went out, shower curtain rod fell off it's holder) but absolutely nothing that would deter from a great trip. Kingsley gave us a tour at check in and we didn't need him after that. Was pleasantly surprised at having beach toys (floats, noodles) and towels and whatnot.

The property itself is in such a convenient location- 5 min to Georgetown, free shuttle, access to the pool, restaurant, and watersports. I didn't originally want to stay on a resort in Exuma but this is the best of both worlds with having a private villa with the amenities of the Hideaways.

Overall, it's everything one wants for a vacation. Would definitely recommend and I hope to return to this most beautiful island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. The villa is ideally situated. It is close to Georgetown and the shops but also just steps from the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean from the first floor balcony. I am glad you enjoyed your vacation and we would be very glad to have you back to stay.

Property was OK

  • 4 of 5

Property was OK but needs some maintenance. Propane grill would not be used by anyone in their right mind. It should be thrown out. Also electric can opener is broken and downstairs toilet seat broken. Could have had toilet seat fixed but did not want to wait around. Did have a wonderful time in Bahamas and hope to Come again

Owner's Response: I apologise for the state of the grill and thank you for informing me. I think the cleaner must have forgotten to clean it after the last guests. In any case I have asked my property manager to replace it with a new one. He has already secured the toilet seat . He will remove the electric can opener to avoid confusion. It has never worked properly and we replaced it with an ordinary can opener. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Exuma and we would welcome you back.

Very large and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in Villa 38. Mavis was great from start to finish. She was quick to respond and provided a ton of information before we arrived. My only complaints are that Kinglsey the property manager was to have a taxi waiting for us at the airport. The taxi driver left and drove someone else so we had to find another ride. Not a big deal. Kingsley was also supposed to have our fridge stocked with some basic items and he did not. He did drive my husband to town to go to the store. The villa is large and was perfect for the 4 of us. The upstairs balcony is great for watching the sun rise and set. Our friends were in the villa next door so it was fun sitting on the porch with them. I will say that the villa could use some sprucing up. Walls were dirty and many light bulbs were out. Fan remotes didn't have batteries, a few towel bars had been ripped from the wall and the master shower door is missing. We really only were there to sleep though! Hideaways was great, very low key. NOT a fancy resort so be prepared for that. Splash bar food was good and the wait wasn't too long. The resort was not crowded at all and we always had the beach to ourselves. It was very windy when we were there so didn't take advantage of paddle boards, kayaks, etc...Definitely walk the 5 minutes to Jolly Hall Beach. So gorgeous! Unless you have a car, there are limited places to eat. We ate at Lattitudes a few doors down, the fish frys, which is a long walk on a dark main road, and Splash bar. That is all within walking distance. Stocking Island was our favorite day there! Take the ferry from Georgetown and spend the day. The food is incredible and the beach and water is gorgeous! We also chartered a tour boat for a full day thru Coastline Adventures. Jeddy was an amazing host and made us fresh conch salad on the boat and took us to many different islands. We had 9 teenagers with us and they loved it! Overall a great vacation. Not a TON to do there but we were looking for just that. We loved relaxing on the beach and by the pool. Would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you had some problems and that the taxi driver did not collect you at the airport. That was the fault of the taxi driver. Thank you for your comments. I have spoken to Kingsley and all the points you mentioned are being addressed. The view of the sunrise from our balcony is amazing although you have to be early risers to see it. It is a vacation for relaxing and enjoying the island's beauty and what it has to offer. It is not for those who like the night life. I am glad that you had a good time and would welcome you back.

Large comfortable condo with easy walk to quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great size condo with balcony views of the water. Hideaways is a nice resort, not new or upscale but everything you need is there and people are helpful and friendly there and throughout the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you found the villa comfortable. It is one of the largest in the resort which gives you plenty of space. I hope you witnessed the sun rising over the ocean at 6.30am which is stunning. The Bahamians are very friendly and their warmth adds to the enjoyment of your holiday.

Everyone should spend time on Exuma

  • 5 of 5

Villa 38 at Palm Bay Beach Club was in the perfect location for our trip to Exuma, it was clean, comfortable and everyone was so helpful. We had a wonderful time exploring the island, we hired a car for most of the time which was so easy as the office is right across the street from Palm Bay.

We went on trips to visit the swimming pigs and Iguanas, hired a boat and explored the bay, stopped off at Stocking Island for drinks and took our lunch out to an island that had the most amazing beach and no one else in sight!

The water and sand are amazing, i have never seen such crystal clear water. I'm not a big fan of the sea (too many fish!!) but even i spent most of the holiday in the water.

Splash Bar was great, my son and husband spent a lot of time playing pool. The food was good and the staff were all lovely and welcoming and so helpful.

There is not one thing i would change about our time on Exuma and Mavis, the owner of Villa 38, was great. She answered all my questions and made sure we had everything we needed.

We hope to be back this year but if not then for sure we'll be back next year.

Thanks Mavis and thanks Exuma

Great Exuma is situated in the Carribean and is part of the Exuma Islands which are north of Cuba.It is renouned for its beautiful, white, sandy beaches and awesome views over the sea.

Relax, enjoying the laid back atmosphere or explore the island to discover its tropical beauty. Car rental is avaiable at Thompson's just across the road from our villa or you can rent a boat from Minn's Water Sports in Georgetown.

Explore the out islands and the almost deserted sandy beaches by boat.Take a ten minute trip by water taxi to Stocking Island to visit its beautiful beaches and nature trail. Enjoy the pig roast at Chat and Chill or the delicious food at Big Dee's.

Another must for dining is The Fish Fry just ten minutes walk down the road. Here you can meet friendy Bahamian people and sample fresh Bahamian cooking.

Exuma has one of the most beautiful fish flats in the world where you can go bone fishing. Other pastimes include snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking.

If you want to relax in a little corner of paradise this is the holiday for you!
