House was as described. Everything was clean and Monica was more than willing to help in any of our needs. Kayak and beach accessories were nice to have been provided. We will be back.
Top quality cottages and people
Over two weeks, I stayed in three of Minns cottages. Each was remarkably well stocked, clean, attractive, and functional. Communication with Monica was exceptional: all questions addressed promptly, special needs met with dispatch, and extra help instantly available. The "local feel" and location were exactly what I value. This is not a "resort," but a wonderful place to live well on the island, and a perfect place from which to explore. The only negative, as is obvious, is its location near to the highway. But proximity to the nearby beach more than offsets that negative. The beach is quite nice, safe, friendly and fun to snorkel nearby. Easily worth the price, and actually a great bargain when compared to anything else in the area.
Beautiful view and close to town
This was our first stay at the Buttercup and we will definitely be back. The cottage was very clean and we loved the screened in porch. Monica was wonderful and always available when we had questions.
Great location, well equipped and attentive property owner!
My family of 4 stayed in Buttercup cottage. Monica was very accommodating and responded to all my questions and requests. The cottage has most everything you need! My only suggestion is to provide 4 beach towels instead of 3 for a family of 4. We made it work because there were plenty of bath towels!
Location is good and very close to the center of town. We were still thankful for our rental car that enabled exploration of the island. The beaches and water in Exuma are indescribably beautiful. So much to see and do. Monica provides some basic info sheets that are helpful. You can find more info elsewhere as well.
It would have been helpful for us to have received an email prior to arrival that contained info on page one in binder at cottage....things more beneficial to know prior to arrival versus once there!
So as far as improvements I think a few more details and updates to your info sheets would be super appreciated and helpful. The rest is all good and I would not hesitate to stay at Minns Cottages again!
Thank you so much for the feed back. I will make sure that every guests gets the information sheets in an email before arrival. The new beach towels was ordered on the 5 December and will be here on Thursday next week. We hope to see you in Exuma again.
All the best
Minn's Cottages are a perfect location on Great Exuma. We stayed in the Ixora east cottage, which was very clean, roomy, and had all of the required amenities, and then some. The cottage is sufficiently private, and has a large screened in patio facing Elizabeth Harbor which provides for spectacular views all day long. So clean, fresh and comfortable, felt like home. Georgetown is a hop-and-a-skip to numerous restaurants, bars and markets where one can pick up all kinds of provisions required for a comfortable stay. The property manager, Esther, with whom we were in frequent contact, from our early planning stages to our departure, was top notch in taking care of us. She was always readily available and truly a pleasure to chat with. The cottages are also a short and pleasant walking distance to beautiful beaches and Fish Fry eateries. We can't say enough about the locals. Always friendly, smiling, and chockful of interesting stories. Renting a runabout boat from Minn's Water Sports is very, very highly recommended. There’s no better way to explore some of the most beautiful secluded beaches in Elizabeth Harbor, experiencing the blinding emerald blue waters, snorkeling thru numerous coral reefs and hanging out at Chatχll’s on Stocking Island. We highly recommend Minn's cottages, and want to thank you, Esther, for enhancing our stay and ensuring our comfort. We will be back, but this time with family members & friends in tow...

Total Relaxation did not want to leave
We loved the place it was perfect for what we needed. We stayed in the Plumbago cabin. Screened in porch for relaxing evening out of the bugs, beach access across the street, friendly people every where and very safe. Great food and did the best snorkeling was across the street on our beach. Had massages, rented a boat and ex[plored at our own pace. The most amazing waters and beaches every where. Cant really say there was a down side to anything, all we could have used was a little better stove and a few better pots and pans.
YOU ARE VERY CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN NO RENTAL CAR NEEDED.
THE COTTAGES ARE LOCATED IN A PRIVATE ESTATE AND THE BEACH IS JUST 50 FEET AWAY.
