Great views and Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained cottage and property. Close to everything. We enjoyed the views of Stocking Island from the screened porch. Having the ability to grill out was an added perk! Esther the manager was

always available before and during our vacation to answer questions and provide information. Wonderful stay.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as pictured! Esther was very thorough and communicative before our arrival and easily accessible during our stay. The cottage is in a great location near Georgetown and the Fish Fry! I recommend renting a car if you want to see the many beautiful areas and beaches. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We were fortunate to meet 2 of the Minn brothers, very friendly and hospitable as are all of the Bahamian people! I would definitely recommend this place!

Nice and relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Buttercup Cottage. It was very clean and the view of the amazingly blue water every morning was incredible. We were able to snorkel right across the street. It is just a 5 minute walk to downtown where there are some great places to eat local fare. The food is really good. Esther and Travis were very helpful with suggestions of were to go and things to do. The people of Exuma are so warm and welcoming. We would definitely go back.

Quiet and lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented the Plumbago Cottage for 10 days, and were pleasantly surprised by it. It is quite big for two people, extremely clean and it has a very nice veranda where it is possible to sit and chat, without being disturbed by bugs (all the windows are indeed sealed by mosquito nets). Esther and her assistant Travis were very kind and used to come by every couple of days to check if we needed anything or simply advice on restaurants/activities. Air conditioning was definitely appreciated and needed, due to the very warm and humid climate. The cottage is in a wonferful and strategic position in Exuma, less than 5 minutes from Georgetown (where supermarkets, gas station, gift shops and the harbour are located) and the main restaurants. There is a small beach across the street, but I suggest you go to Jolly Hall bay or to Hooper's bay, which are also closeby. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you might need (pots, cutlery...) and the same is true for the bathroom (all kind of towel sets). We would definitely go back if we had the chance!

Only negative point (if we have to find one) is that Wi-Fi connection was to slow and we were unable to stream movies. In that week unfortunately the TV was not working due to some connection troubles, but the last two days of our stay it was fixed. Certainly you may not find it the cheapest apartment, but Exuma is a very expensive island and this is a normal price.

Thanks again for the lovely stay, Esther!

Minn's "escape" cottages

  • 5 of 5

My husband surprised me for my 60th birthday with a trip to Georgetown, Exuma. Our daughter in law made all of the arrangements including our stay at Minn's. It was perfect! We stayed in the Ixora East and it had all that we needed. It was clean, quiet and stocked with all that one could want. We were fortunate to be the first to use the new "king" size bed, it was a dream to sleep in! Esther the caretaker, and Travis, were so great. Whatever I needed Esther was there to help us with it. We would certainly hope to return to Georgetown and would definately stay at Minn's next time.

Relaxation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Buttercup villa and it was spectacular. The villa was beautiful, spacious, and had everything I could need. The view of the bay was breathtaking every morning and all day. The beach right across the road was clear blue water with excellent snorkeling right off the sand. I would recommend this cottage to anyone interested in staying in Great Exuma.
