Stunning Views, Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting the Bahamas Out Islands for around 15 years, but this the first time we actually stayed in Exuma. We love the uncrowded, less touristy aspects of the Out Islands. Exuma didn't disappoint! We stayed for a week with our two college age daughters and had a great time. The house is positioned with a stunning view of Jolly Hall Beach. The patio and upper deck are perfect vantage points for gazing out at the gorgeous water. The home was clean, and very well appointed. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens and towels. We cooked in about half the the time, using the gas grill. The grill and appliances all worked perfectly and there were plenty of dishes and utensils. The dock had been damaged from last year's storms, but was completly usable. A beautiful place to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the stingrays and bonefish glide by.

During our stay, we rented kayaks for the week from www.outislandexplorers.com. Dallas and Tamara (owners) have lots of great intel and advice on places nearby to explore. We also rented a boat from Minn's to explore Stocking Island and do some snorkeling. In Georgetown, there are plenty of restaurants and local joints to check out. Talk to the locals to find out what is going on and where. If you love rake and scrape music, find out when the band is playing at Edgewater, which has great food, too. Shirley's, a fish shack on the water, is also one of our favorites. Go to Catch a Fire Bar and Grill to watch spectacular sunsets.

A couple of pointers...the house is hard to find. If getting or giving directions, locals know the house as "the white house on Jolly Hall." Also, the house didn't come equipped with dishwasher soap, laundry soap & only one roll of paper towels. Plan on buying or bringing. Also bring along beach towels. There are no beach chairs. There was not Internet during our stay, but that wasn't the owner's fault--there was an outage which is common in the Islands. (Owner gave us consideration for the inconvenience.) Cell service is good (albeit slow for data). Also, most restaurants have WiFi, and we went into town to use. TV worked fine, although we didn't use it but once. Any issues we experienced, the local contact for the house addressed right away.

Finally, bring cash. Most businesses in the islands are "mom and pop" types & don't take plastic.

Overall, it was a wonderful week and we hope to be back!

Perfect location! Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

The location couldn't be better-not too far from the airport (took us 15-20 min to get to there), about 5 minutes from Georgetown, grocery and restaurants were easy to get to. Easy getting around, which is great if it's your first time driving on the left side of the road! One tip for finding the house-not exactly across from AID, it's just after you pass AID (we made the mistake of pulling into the drive right across but quickly realized we were in the wrong place). Willy greeted us and checked up on us through the week- very nice and helpful! The view was amazing, the beach was private, sometimes we were completely alone, never more than 10 people on the beach at once. Good length of beach for walking/playing in the sand, perfect water for swimming or kayaks, etc and some sea grass which made it great for watching fish, turtles and rays. The dock was damaged from a hurricane, but was still safe. The house was clean, there were a few things in need of repair, but nothing that impacted our stay. We saw a snake on the sidewalk one night - to be expected with all the landscaping but watch your step! If you are heading to Exuma with the intention of spending your days at the beach, this is the place! This would not be the best house if you are planning to be indoors a lot- living space is small, but watching tv was not on out itenerary ;). That said, plenty of tvs in the house. Kitchen worked for small family, but wouldn't want to cook a big meal for a large group- fine for us, as we planned on eating dinners out. As other reviews said, the picnic table area is a bit removed from the house- in a great spot for a view, but because we ate dinners out we never used it. May have been a pain to move food out there (especially w wind), but I still thought it was a lovely space and cool feature of the house. Power went out, but that happens in Exuma. There were issues w wifi- but we didn't care- we were trying to disconnect for the week (I'd advise pre planning exclusions and restaurants ahead of time due to lack of internet once you arrive). House could use more outdoor seating and beach towels, we got by and never asked for any add'l, but seeing the house accommodates 6 more would be nice. The only things keeping house from 5 stars- needs minor wear/tear maintenance, more and/or upgraded furniture, improved beach access (didn't like walking through trees after seeing the snake), and water equipment (kayaks, etc). Overall, loved it!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Jolly Hall. The beaches and water are amazing. It was our second trip to Georgetown, but first stay at this home. We were not disappointed! View is amazing and the house is beautifully decorated. Owner was very easy to work with, as well as the care taker on the island. We loved sitting on the dock watching turtles and sting rays swim by! The pavilion at the top of the property was perfect for morning coffee and evening wine with a view! We will be back!

Great location but the property is tired and in desperate need of an upgrade.

  • 2 of 5

The location of the property is great with a quiet sandy beach. Exuma and the local islands are beautiful with many attractions and the local people were very friendly and helpful. The house is nice but dated and in need of repair and refurbishing. It has two very nice decks looking out to the ocean but did not have the proper furniture to sit out and enjoy the view or sunbathe. It has a dock that is very useful if you have a boat but was completely unusable and unsafe because of damage sustained in the last hurricane. Additionally, we were also disappointed in overall cleanliness of the house itself. But our biggest disappointment was that the internet did NOT work throughout our entire stay. I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the location, the view, and the beautiful sandy beach steps from our house. It seems your main frustration, which affected your overall experience, was the issue we had with the local internet company, which we worked to resolve and even provided you with a credit for the inconvenience. In any event, this should not be a problem going forward. While it is true the dock did sustain hurricane damage, it was still usable and is being repaired. I’m not sure what to make of your remaining concerns - had you brought anything specific to my attention, I would have been happy to try to address during your stay. To set the record straight, there is quite a lot of deck furniture, the decor is very modern and was installed in the last few years, and the house is professionally cleaned before every stay. We completely agree that Exuma and the Bahamian people are incredible, and hope you continue to enjoy the island no matter where you stay in the future.

Great property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great holiday in Exuma and the property was perfect for us. Would have given five stars if was not for the difficulty of finding the property. There is no signs on the road and there is a new set of villas just before the property that have a jolly hall sign on the street. Our difficulties were also encountered by the tour operator we used to visit the cays.
