Private quiet area in the south area. I would recommend golf cart. Had everything we needed at the house and a killer view! Property management communication could improve before arrival. Would rent again!
The perfect spot on Staniel Cay
This was our second time staying at the Beach Cottage, and it was just as great the second time. It is right on the beach, with a dock, kayaks, and everything you need. We rented a boat that was delivered to the house for us. Each evening, we biked to the yacht club for dinner, therefore we did not rent a golf cart. There are few street lights though, so we brought 2 cheap head lamp lights, and that did the trick to get us there and back!
For breakfast and lunch we cooked with the provisions we ordered in advance. The kitchen has all the basic things you need, but I would suggest bringing things like salt, pepper, cooking spray, etc. in your checked luggage! We also brought our own snacks, coffee, etc.
The cottage stays nice and cool with the A/C and hot water is always there. The WiFi did not work for us during our stay, but it’s an island so that is of course to be expected, and who needs the internet when you’re in paradise!
We were fortunate enough to see sting rays, nurse sharks, and turtles right off the dock.
Do not hesitate! This is the best place to stay in the Bahamas!
We are so glad you once again had a wonderful stay at the Beach Cottage on Staniel Cay. We try to make possible a unique experience for our guests. It's obvious from your comments you understand the real Bahamian out island life and enjoy the benefits. The island hopes to see you again soon.
Best regards, Bob and Gary
Perfect spot for a quiet honeymoon getaway!
Property was perfect for our recent honeymoon. Plenty of privacy at the Beach Cottage, and a short golf-cart ride away from great food and drinks in town.
All around great spot!
Perfect couples get away
What a great cottage in a perfect location. This was our first vrbo and on an out island at that so we were cautiously optimistic. The cottage is exactly as described, spotless, well appointed and right on the water. 3Ns, Nikki and Dexi managed the rental for us, provided a golf cart and arranged a few boat tours with a Captain Canton all at a fair price. We are very active folks but I think a cart is needed here, nights are dark and can get buggy if the breeze dies down and you will want to head into "town" periodically for food, drinks etc. The location is on the opposite side of the island as the yacht club about a 5 min cart ride. If you are looking for a very nice place to relax and unplug this is it, quiet, clean, safe and very friendly locals. If you must work or check in the cell service works reasonably well, BTC is the carrier and we roamed with Verizon and ATT successfully. We would definately like to return the Staniel and to this cottage specifically the whole 3Ns team were great hosts!
Joe, thank you for the review of your stay with us at the Beach Cottage on Staniel Cay. You were well versed on being on an "out island" and all that goes with it...something special with a slower pace and an occasional power surprise. But as you know the unspoiled waters and casual living make for a truly special time. Again, thank you and hope to see you again.
Amazing Time, but some issues...
We had an amazing time at the property and loved having the dock for our boat, and had a great time overall, however the property manager was not a good communicator and told us we were booked to leave the island at the end of our stay but in the end no reservation was ever made and they never even responded when we asked, had to book a private boat last minute and luckily it worked out fine, but lack of communication was disappointing. Part is this is just “island life” which we love but when you are counting on getting to your next destination you can’t really risk these things.
Golf carts all broken at PM, and bicycles were about 50 years passed their useful life and they broke as well so we had a little hard time getting around. Having our own boat while on the island which the PM did book for us was awesome and this part was very smooth.
Property itself was great and right on the ocean.
One thing to keep in mind if you book this, the owner of the rental lives right next door, he’s very nice, but a bit intrusive and would question us on why we we’re bringing our own rental boat back to the dock after dark and suggested we anchor the boat and not use the dock due to wind. What’s the point of a dock that is advertised if we can’t use it?
Overall it’s hard not to have an amazing time after all you are in one of the most amazing places on earth, but next time we would stay at the yacht club, which is amazing.
The Beach Cottage is located on the south eastern side of Staniel Cay, Exuma. It sits about 30 feet from the waters edge, overlooking a spectacular protected bay with waters of every color blue known. Beach comb, swim, snorkel, fish, etc., right out the door. The Cottage is approx 1 kilometer from a small island 'village' where dining and activities can be had, making it very quiet and private.
Other Activities: totally relaxing or swiming and kayaking around the bay, dive thunderball cave, swim with pigs or turtles, learn to spearfish with locals.
