Amazing House, Hosts and Location!
We had a wonderful stay here for our honeymoon. Robert and Carla were so hospitable and kind. They house is beautiful and the bed was so comfortable with very luxurious linens and pillows! The deck is huge with a great grill, lots of outdoor furniture including extremely comfortable lounge chairs and the most stunning views!
Great location!! So many beach nearby to explore! We went to a new beach every day and they were all either mostly or totally deserted.
Do not hesitate to book here. It is truly perfect! Thank you so much for hosting us Robert and Carla! We can't wait for our next trip back.
Fabulous home and location!
We had a beautiful stay in Exuma. The Turtle Bay house was the perfect location to go out and explore. We stocked up groceries at La Familia and then ventured out to the cays to visit the pigs and off to Stocking Island for the day. Each evening we cooked meals at the house and even saw an incredible rainbow off the deck. There’s a beautiful beach just down the road and we immediately got in the water. Kay was so attentive and accommodating and the owners were responsive to any needs we had. The beds were quite comfortable and the house much larger than we’d imagined. We’ll definitely be back someday. We encourage everyone to visit the natural beauty and wonderful people of Exuma and the Turtle Bay house is the perfect spot to stay while you enjoy the island.
A nice place to stay
Our group of 3 adults and 1 child spent two weeks on Great Exuma during Dec 2017. We spent our first week at this property.
The pictures accurately depict how beautiful the home is. The view was amazing. The decor is lovely, and we enjoyed the little extras such as the music/book collection.
The home was also incredibly clean. It's definitely the cleanest rental home we've ever enjoyed!
The location is hands-down the best on the island. It is RIGHT off the main road (but don't worry, you don't hear any traffic whatsoever as you're high up on a hill), so it's easy to get back on the road when you need to go places. It's also right across the street from the Prime Island Meats Deli! It was great having such quick access to fresh meat, and they also sell groceries there. Smitty's grocery store/liquor store are also very close by, and the main town is a quick drive away too.
The property manager, Kay, was amazing. She waited for us when our plane was terribly late arriving to the island. We felt horrible for being delayed, but she was so sweet and happily led us to the home when it was pitch black outside.
For the negatives...I must mention the bed in the master bedroom. I read previous reviews about it, and I have to expand upon them. The bed is beautiful, but it is like sleeping on plywood. I sleep on my back and I've never, ever had such a poor rest. The mattress is as hard as a rock, and I ended up sleeping on the couch, which is not a great way to spend a holiday.
Another issue would be with the kitchen. We cook 90% of our meals when we rent a home. We noticed that the toaster didn't work and two of the stove burners were not working. In comparison to other rental homes we've rented over the years, the kitchen was not as well equipped. Little things were missing, such as a lack of a pasta strainer, kitchen scissors, proper butcher knives/steak knives, metal utensils for the BBQ, baking sheets for the oven, etc. We noticed a large box with a blender in it, but we didn't want to open a new box, so we didn't open it and just missed out on making drinks that week. If you wish to use the BBQ/grill at this home, you will need to purchase your own metal utensils or kitchen scissors/sharp knives if you want to cut open a lobster tail or cut into a steak. You will also need to purchase charcoal. We did eventually find lighter fluid for the BBQ.
With the exception of the bed and the missing kitchen items, this was a great rental home.
Thank you for the constructive criticism which is noted. The mattress is new but firm and obviously not to every bodies liking. We will purchase a mattress topper that people can use if they choose to.
We have a toaster oven and regular toaster. The regular toaster does take a little longer than normal to toast as it is British toaster with an adapter. We will get a US toaster as well.
The stove is working fine and has never been an issue - prior and subsequent guests have not had an issue and Kay has checked. If you had difficultly working the stove Kay could easily have helped. One thing we really pride ourselves on is quickly responding to issues raised by guests. I am disappointed that you did not bring this up until after you had left.
The blender was obviously there to use. Again if you were concerned Kay is always available to ask questions.
We will purchase the appropriate extra utensils you mentioned.
Comfortable and beautiful house overlooking the water
The house was spacious for four adults. The house is listed as able to sleep four adults. The house has two bedrooms with King beds and can sleep four however, two of the adults are brother and sister. One of them had to sleep on the couch which is not comfortable (it's a three piece set that come apart when slept on). We found an air matress that we used instead of th couch.
There is also a security light outside on the house across the driveway. The light comes on at night and lighted up the our house. Kept us up some.
Overall the house is comfortable and has everything you need for a stay. Appliances are updated and everything works. There are two grocery store close by. Beach access is really close that you can walk to. The house is central all th other beaches and sites.
This was my second time to Exuma and the location was perfect. You are centrally located to go to either side of the island for different adventures. Originally it was a tough decision to stay on the beach or not but similar to before we traveld all over the island and wouldn’t have utilized the beach front location. There are so many great beaches you can drive to and explore. This house is great for couples with the two bedrooms on opposite sides of the house and the living room/kitchen in the middle. View is great and the deck has plenty of furniture to relax and enjoy the view after a long day. Kitchen had everything we needed and entire house felt updated including the bathrooms. Overall great choice for us we would stay here again and can’t beat a great house in a great spot!
Gorgeous house - well located!
The house itself is immaculate, not a single detail forgotten. It looks exactly as the pictures show. A couple of things to note that you cannot see in the pictures. 1. There are a couple of other houses on the property, but it was still very private and quiet. 2. It is an 8 minute walk to the beach. You have to walk to the main road and then down a path between two houses. 3. Robert provides a few dvds and lots of cds. We watched a movie almost every night. 4. The king bed is a little firm for my taste but I slept like a rock every night. 5. The a/c works well.
The house is situated perfectly on the island. It's about 45 minutes to drive to the northwest end and 35 minutes to drive to the southeast end of Little Exuma. It's also very close to Smitty's (the grocery store) and the liquor store as well as George Town.
Robert was great to work with. We had a death in the family the day before our trip was supposed to start and he let us reschedule to new dates.
A couple of tips for the island. Drive down to Santana's for lunch and then spend some time at Tropic of Cancer beach and Forbes Hill beach. Take a tour of the cays. Drive up to Shoreline Restaurant and Bar - eat the fish and chips - and then walk to Coco Plum beach at low tide (this is where the swing is). Take a water taxi to the Chat and Chill on Stocking Island on Sunday for the pig roast.
Located overlooking Hooper's Bay on a stunning elevated plot. The walk to the beach is a gentle 5 minute stroll.
