Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Gary and Vee’s place on Great Exuma last week. Prior to the trip, they were always available to answer questions about logistics, places to eat and grocery shop, and things to do on the island. They had very clear documentation to support it with contact information and names; this removed a lot of anxiety as this was our first time on the island. Upon arrival, we were able to immediately get in touch with our local contact on the island who met us on the main road and took us directly to the cottage. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed. Note: If Gary and Vee tell you something, you can take it to the bank – everything was coordinated as they had communicated during the booking process. The home is right down the street from access to Three Sisters Beach; I saw one person on this beach the entire time we were there and that was at sunrise when I was having coffee and the other person was out for a walk. If you want a beautiful setting to get away, this is your place. After a long day at Three Sisters or any other local beach, we typically relaxed in the front yard or on the back porch and watched the sunset; a sight to behold every day. The recommendations for dining were all great from various perspectives; service, scenery, food, and atmosphere. Needless to say, this trip was a success – Gary and Vee, thank you so much for you clear communication, availability, and sharing your place with us! – Kevin and Caroline Stone

Beautiful Vacay Home!

  • 5 of 5

Five of my friends and I stayed in the home just last week and it was perfect!

Upon arrival, Reagan (the manager) was waiting for me. He showed me around the house, walked me down to the beach, and then even shared his drinks with me while I waited on the rest of the gang to arrive. We only had one issue the whole time, and that was a hot water non-problem....I say non-problem because turns out, the handles were simply backwards! However, I called Reagan and he was at our rescue within 20-30 minutes!

As for the condition of the home, it was clean, well kept, and super cute! The now bright green door gave it some extra happiness before walking in. There were the 2 full beds and 2 twin beds as stated, all of the towels and linens were clean and folded nicely, and the a/c was on keeping the place nice and chilled. The beach was about a 2 minute walk down a pathway by the house across the way. The best part? We never saw a single person on the beach besides us!! Who doesn't want a private beach??

While we weren't actually in the home often, it was the perfect place to lay our heads down and relax!

Amazing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in this vacation home in Exuma, Bahamas more than exceeded our expectations! With all the comforts and amenities of home, we quickly fell in love with this residence. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The customer service from both the owner Gary and Flo (the contact on Exuma for HomeAway) was prompt and exceptional. It was obvious that they cared very much and it was important to them that we had a wonderful experience and vacation.

Our vacation was fantastic! The closest beach is directly across the street and is very private with beautiful powdery sand and lovely scenery, we never saw anyone else there. There are many highlights of our experience on Exuma. As we were there for two weeks, we were able to see and do everything we had hoped to do. Our favourite meals were at the Grand Isle Resort, Agusta Bay, Frankie Bananas (all you can eat on Fridays) and The Hideaway at Palm Bay. We enjoyed Catch a Fire but found it the most expensive. If you plan on going on any excursions, we felt the best one was the day long trip that included swimming with pigs, visiting Stocking Island where the famous Chat & Chill is, snorkeling in caves and visiting celebrity homes. There are a few different Charters that do these excursions. We visited many different beaches that can be located on a map, Tropic of Cancer was well worth the drive. You can pick up all the pamphlets at the airport. We visited Grand Isle Resort several times, it is about 7 minutes away from this home. It was very reasonable ($30 per day pass) and we had access to all their facilities: a beautiful pool, towels, lovely beach on Emerald Bay and water sports. The restaurant there had lots of variety and was priced well. We felt it was was well worth the money. A car is recommended to fully enjoy this amazing island. The dry food and Crystal Light concentrate/powdered drinks that we brought in our suitcase were a great idea and helped keep the costs down.

Our overall experience at this residence and our experience on the island was superb!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in May and were very happy with everything. They house was exactly as advertised, clean, and well kept. Beach was fantastic. Gary, the owner, was very helpfull and quick to answer all questions. Ms Johnson, the property manager, is a jewel and very nice and helpful. We're talking about returning sometime and this house will always be our first choice in Exuma

Very relaxing, good location

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed except for a beach umbrella, which we were able to purchase at the local hardware store (AID).We really liked the location and the proximity to the beach. There is a property to the west which is very close to this one, but the people there were quiet so it wasn't an issue. The owner, Gary, is very friendly and responsive. He helped ease some of our concerns before we left for the island. The property manager (Flo) showed up on time and was very pleasant, however don't expect her to call you back during your stay if you leave a message on her phone. We tried a couple of times with no response. Maybe cell service is really expensive there? The beach was very close and we only saw a handful of people on it the entire week. It definitely helps to have a car as there was only one restaurant within easy walking distance, although you can get to it by walking down the beach, which is nice. We didn't eat there so don't know how the food is. There are no grocery stores within easy walking distance. The road does not have much of a shoulder so it's not really conducive to bike riding. The island is a great getaway if you prefer to be off the beaten path.We only detracted one star due to the lack of responsiveness by the property manager. We would definitely go back and rent this cottage again.
