Guestbook comments from the manager

"Our 5-day stay at Minns' Cottages was fantastic! The location allowed full use of all of George Town's resources on foot, yet, at the same time, we felt secluded and restful in the quaint cottages and their lush sub-tropical surroundings.



"Mr. Godfrey Minns from the start was gracious, accommodating, and quite helpful. His advice on places to go and what to see helped us have the experience we were hoping for and much, much more.



"Our itinerary:



- Day 1: Arrive mid-day, check out George Town, go to bed early.

- Day 2: Rent mopeds 1/2 day, see east end of island and Little Exuma.

- Day 3: Mopeds to west side of island (1/2 day), ferry to Stocking Island.

-Day 4: Rent boat at Minns' Water Sports, snorkeled all day.

- Day 5: Relax, snorkel with guide from Peace & Plenty



"Note: (1) we cooked our own meals 3 times. Allow at least same to sample all local food.

(2) We only rented scooters for 24 hours and felt satisfied."

Perfect cottage near the beach and town

  • 3 of 5

The cottage (Plumbago) looks exactly as the pictures.

Clean and with great service from Ester Butler or Travis if you have any questions. Also great to have your own house so can cook if you want to.

Was there with my 7 year old so brilliant that there's a small beach just opposite the road.

Takes less than 10 minutes to walk to town or to the Fish Fry shacks.

I can certainly recommend Exuma! Great to go to Stocking Islands and feed the stingrays or go on a boattrip and see e.g. the turtles, iguanes and swimming pigs. Ofcourse if you go without children there's beautiful scuba diving.

Bahamas dream vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our 7 year anniversary in the Bahamas (Exuma).at the Minn's Cottages. What a beautiful place!! The cottage was very clean and had a full kitchen, which we really appreciate. We had a screened in porch on our unit which had a spectacular view of the Exuma costline. At night we would walk out by the water, beautiful!!! Exuma has a great little village with lots of shops. My wife really enjoyed browsing . You can rent a boat if you like and there were qaint restaurants scattered around town. One main grocery store where you can find what you need. The Minn's family are wonderful people, very cordial and accomidating. We had a great time and highly recommend the Minn's Cottages. We will be back!!

It was the perfect get away for our anniversary

  • 5 of 5

The property is located across the street from the ocean. The rooms were well appointed. You are walking distance from town and restaurants. The Exuma market had a great selection of items so we could cook at the house. Make sure and try the Kalik beer. We also rented a boat and went to the island visible from the house. I would highly recommend staying here. We will be back!

Can't wait to go back! Superb vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation! Exuma is paradise and the cottages were perfect, fully furnished down to the linens, hairdryers, silverware and pots and pans. Right across the street from the beach and minutes from downtown. Excellent place for a family reunion with several families. You have your own family compound but separate cottages to provide privacy or even quiet time for little ones to sleep. Screened porches are magnificent!
