Amazing vacation; beautiful home and private beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wendy's property with two other couples for a 40th birthday celebration. Before arrival, Wendy was very helpful and informative and gave us ideas on what to do, where to eat, etc. The home is very close to the airport; less than five minutes, which is very convenient. We were greeted at the home by Desereen, who was so sweet and showed us around. The home was just perfect; very nice and clean; beautiful views and private beach. The water truly is spectacular and the most people we saw on the beach was 4 people! Very private. The house was stocked with the basics, which was very nice: coffee, sugar, spices, shampoo, soap, conditioner, toilet tissue, paper towels, dish and laundry detergent, etc . She also provides beach towels, chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards and kayaks. The guys took the kayak to an island across from the house (about a 25 minute paddle each way). The house has Netflix and internet, but it's slow. I think that's an island wide issue, not specific to Wendy's home. No big deal. There is a land line with free calls to the US.

We did the Coastline excursion, on Wendy's recommendation. It was probably the highlight of our trip. It's expensive but worth it. We took a water taxi to Stocking Island and ate at Chat and Chill. Very cool atmosphere and good food. We spent several hours over there. You can also feed the stingrays there. The other days we lounged on our private beach. The water was rough/windy the first few days, but calm the other days. We ate at Shirley's fish fry, which was good, and went to Da New Eddie's Edgewater MOnday night, which has live music on Mondays. It was fun!

We rented a car, which I recommend. I highly recommend bringing as many groceries (at least dry goods) as possible. We filled our carry-on bag with snacks/groceries. We even checked a small soft cooler of lunch meat. The grocery stores are very expensive (like $6.50 for a bag of chips) and don't have a great selection. Remember to bring your own beer koozies/huggies (we forgot ours). We bought liquor at the Duty Free store at the airport in Atlanta. There is a meat market/small grocery pretty close to the house - La Familia market. We got steak and lobsters one night and grilled them at home.

I highly recommend this property. Wendy, Desereen, and Norman (the property mgr that lives next door) were all very attentive and helpful. We all agreed that the Exumas are some of the prettiest beaches we've ever seen. We hope to return!

Amazing Beachfront House and Vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time my family has visited Exuma, and we were not disappointed. Our rental home exceeded our expectations and was the nicest we have ever stayed in. The lay out of the house was great, 3 private bedrooms with their own bathrooms, and a central living and gathering area. Beautifully decorated home with original artwork. Quality linens and comfortable beds. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking and grilling, with extra amenities, coffee, tea, sugars, and much more all included. We sat in the screened porch nightly, and used the covered deck and sunbathing patio daily. But, the most amazing thing about this house is the breathtaking views of the turquoise ocean through the windows and doors across the back of the house. Unbelievable !! We have travelled the Caribbean, but no other island compares to the white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters of Exuma. The kids enjoyed using the boogie boards and kayaks. Wendy was great to work with and helped us plan our trip from start to finish stress free. Her recommendations for car rental, Cays tour with Coastline, and restaurants were invaluable. Thank you for sharing your spectacular house with us. We will definitely be back next year.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the first week of January 2017. Before we came, Wendy the owner was extremely helpful with suggestions on excursions and restaurants. She also had her housekeeper meet us at the airport which was very handy as although we rented a minivan we didn't realize the luggage would not fit so having vehicle to carry the luggage was very helpful as it was dark when we arrived. When we left we made 2 trips easily to the airport as the house is only 5 minutes away.

The house has nice art and is truly spectacular. 3 bedrooms with comfy mattresses & ensuite washrooms

Large tv, great fully stocked kitchen with coffee maker, dishes and cooking utensils. I brought food like oatmeal, spices and maple syrup on Wendy's advice as the Exuma Market or Smitty's may not have everything. It was so nice to cook breakfast there and barbeque hamburgers i made from scratch with the sound of the ocean waves breaking in the background.

In the mornings my wife and I walked the gorgeous beach which goes for 8 miles and each day we swam in the ocean with our 5 yr old son. The air temperature was 80F and just right. The water was cool only until you got in after that it was fine. The beach has nice sand and there were no rocks under the water.

Wendy recommended Santana's restaurant which is a 30 mile drive to Tropic of Cancer beach. They had the best lobster i have ever had and the lunch price was great at $25 including gratuity. (Note every other restaurant adds 15% gratuity + 7.5% tax to every bill) We enjoyed it so much we went back on the Saturday before we left but at 5pm. Be aware that after 4:30 the price jumps to $35 and the sand flies, gnats or noseesums were very bad at the restaurant. So i would recommend going for lunch vs dinner.

We drove around the whole island. Sandals Emerald Bay is a few miles north but you cant get in. Right next door is Grand Isle Resort if you want to drive some where for lunch or view the marina right beside it. You can golf too.

I would recommend an excursion to see the friendly swimming pigs and sharks at Compass Cay. Wendy recommended Coastline Adventures who have a 35 ' center console boat. Note the boat has 7 seats but 14 people are on it so get there early. They took care of our parents well.

The only negative on the trip was the internet was so slow due a recent Hurricane. Hopefully this will get resolved, but not having any internet made this the best trip ever! Thank you again Wendy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. Nice to hear that you and your family had a great time in Exuma and enjoyed our home. I honestly did not even know that Santana's was open for dinner, since we always go for lunch, than to Cancer Beach, but good to know now. With Exuma being a out island of the Bahamas, the internet service on the Island is inferior to what we have here in the states, and in desperate need of upgrading, but things move slowly in the Bahamas, one of the reasons we love it there. Best, Wendy

Beautiful water. Nice safe location. Close to airport but not too close.

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean and well appointed. We stayed there for a ladies trip. The area is beautiful with both sandy beach and rock formations. Nearby island is a challenge but fun to kayak. Definitely rent a car to explore. Would be even better if it had a pool but still great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Happy to hear you and your friends had a great time in Exuma and enjoyed our home. With the most beautiful beach only 50 steps from our house, we never really considered putting in a pool. Best, Wendy

Wonderful in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

For anyone deciding whether or not to book this house.....book now! Our family just returned from a week's stay between Christmas and New Year's and had an amazing vacation. The house is perfectly situated on the pristine ocean beach - we awoke to the sun rising over the water every morning. It is beautifully decorated, spotless, and very well appointed, with every comfort of home, and then some! The water is, truly, as blue as pictured; absolutely breathtaking. Wendy was a tremendous resource. Her helpful, timely tips and advice from the day we booked until the day we left were invaluable. She is the best! Exuma itself is a very 'rural' island, with very little commercial development. We would often walk the beach and be the only people on it. There is as much, or as little, to do as you choose. My husband and son are avid fishermen, and spent their days fishing from shore and, a couple of mornings, alongside a local fisherman recommended by Wendy. My two daughters and I lounged in the sun on the patio, overlooking the ocean, and thoroughly enjoyed a half day swimming pigs tour, also recommended by Wendy. Lots of fun and adventure! The low key nature of the island also allowed us to spend precious family time together, completely stress- and worry-free. We have traveled the Caribbean and all agree that our stay at Bahama Blue was one of our best vacations ever. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity, Wendy!
