Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and our trip. This house fit us perfect. We are already ready to go back! The salt water showers weren't that bad. Skin felt amazing. Most roads out there are dirt so you get use to the dirt roads too. Hope everyone enjoys this as much as we did! Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!

Breath Taking Views with Secluded Feeling

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of three couples from the states and stayed at the Three Little Birds for a week. The views are indescribable and the access to the beach is the best around the neighborhood. Funny thing, we didn't know there was a third bathroom until the last day as we think the cleaning person accidentally locked the door. There are only a couple of things on why we didn't give it a full 5 star and I have listed the Pros and Cons below. Overall I must say, it is a great home and has everything one needs to stay in a tropical paradise! Feel free to reach out for any specific questions!

Pros:

- Views - Roomy - Linens Provided

- Remote - Kitchen Estentials - Outdoor Seating - Outdoor BBQ - Kayaks

- AC

Cons:

- Salt Water Showers: after a week, it can get a bit 'salty' lol but we did use some fresh water for our hair. It is listed and I wouldn't call it a full Con, if one isn't used to it then it can be

- Wifi: It didn't work at all. We did message but to be honest we were kind of glad that it didn't. Our neighbors to the left (when looking at the house) said that it is really spotty and that is just the island. Again if one is open minded, then no biggy!

- Bugs: This isn't something particularly the owner can handle but be prepared. We did find two baby scorpions in one of the showers. They are harmless but just be mindful there are critters in the humidity. ALSO LOTS of mosquitos at night!

These are some things that would be better for your overall experience while in Exuma and while staying at the Three Little Birds 😊�

- Deet Bug Spray

- Sunblock

- Rent a Car: we used Berlie's

- Bring Cash: some places only take it

- Outlets are ok so no adapter needed

- Be prepared to drive on the other side of the road but also the roads are a little rough. Directions to the house were easy so no worries!

Have fun and enjoy your time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review , very pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday. One point regards the sand fly's ( no see ums) , use a lot of baby oil it stops the no see ums and is good for the skin. Thanks again Tony.

Great Stay At Three Little Birds

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Three Little Birds from May 23rd to May 31st 2017 and we enjoyed our stay very much. We were 4 adults from the US and have all traveled a fair amount over the years but this was our first time renting a house. We rented a house as opposed to staying at a hotel because we wanted the experience to feel more like we lived there. We had a few questions before our stay and Tony was always quick with a kind and helpful response. The location of the house is just beautiful and really peaceful but it IS a little bit of a distance from George Town.That was OK with us because we rented a car and wanted to do some driving to explore the island while there. The roads in Exuma are a little challenging but if you’re careful, you’ll be fine. We rented our car from Thompson’s car rental and they were great too. The house was spacious and had what we needed for the week. There were a few minor things that were not perfect but once you stay in these conditions (salt air, salt water and sand) for a few days you realize how difficult it is to keep things up so ultimately it wasn’t an issue for us and the good far outweighs those minor things. We knew about the bore hole causing the house water to be salty before we came and during our stay none of us found that to be an issue but some people may. We never had any unpleasant smells in the showers or anything of that nature.

We enjoyed sitting on the deck and exploring the water and sand bar right from our own back yard. The views we had during morning coffee on the deck is one of the best vacation memories I’ve ever had. The water is so pretty. We also got a kick out of the neighborhood dogs that would come by to visit from time to time.

I find myself somewhat reluctant to tell people how much I loved Exuma because I want to keep it all to myself. The people are so nice. Everywhere we went, people were genuinely kind and friendly. During our entire stay, we always felt safe which is important when you are on vacation. The food was also really great. There are so many things I could recommend but go to Tropic of cancer beach, Santana’s and the bakery next door. The bakery makes the best rum cake and the gals there are so sweet. The water and the beaches here are amazingly gorgeous but the sand flees are prevalent and their bites are very itchy for several days so take precautions not to get bit. WE ALL LOVED OUR TIME IN EXUMA. We will be back and we would stay at Three Little Birds again too.

House is to far from civilization and pure salt water comes out the faucet!!

  • 1 of 5

The road is horrible to get there. There is no wifi. Salt water comes out of the faucets we could not even get out towels to soapy. It's wayyyyyyy in the back of nowhere uphills down hills and will break up your rental.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you thought the house was not close enough to George Town, the roads were not good and the well water was saline. I would like to take the opportunity to point out that the house position is shown on the map and I do mention in the details that George Town is about a 10 minute drive and the well water is rather salty.(the house is priced to account for the water , Town water is about to be connected). Other than The Queens Highway all the roads are unmade,Its unfortunate you found the roads a problem not every body does. .

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

  • 1 of 5

We are 3 Adult couples, all over 60 y/o stayed here from March 9 - 18 2017...The location is what has been described , tough roads getting there but nice spot to travel from and enjoy the great views . We got to the house at approx 330 pm. People wanted to use the bathrooms-NO TOILET PAPER. 3 BATHROOMS-NO TOILET PAPER. In my room, closest to the well pump the shower was heavily dripping water and no lights were working via the switch-had to use one of the table lamps and put it on the flush to use the bathroom ...My wife looked in the refrigerator and worked for approx 20 - 30 minutes looking for cleaner and attempting to clean the refrigerator, especially the freezer ...We find out the next day that 2 of the 3 showers did not work--we saw a man in the street with a dog and asked are you MICK, he said yes, and we explained about the showers and he sent a man over with 2 handfuls of tools and he repaired both - clogged up showerheads with salt ..and he showed me that the shower would not drip if I kept the handle at 6 oclock position rather than the tight position - it worked !! He asked for $50.00 and we said, see Mick .. The 3rd shower in the hallway pumped out great water BUT, due to someone not wanting to fix it properly they circumvented the mixing valve for an on/off valve at the showerhead--so my friend tried it and it came out great, except for the scalding hot temperature..The other ensuite bedroom bathroom had a septic odor after you used it - both people who used it complained about it ..Back to the kitchen >>I never saw it, but my friends described the oven as being very dirty ..The cabinets were very dirty inside and the silverware as you can imagine with salt water in the plumbing pipes were very rusty ...The cooking pans were scratched and chipped- teflon type .. The cabinets were hand made crudely..A lady from down the street came over, and she could not believe what we told her and she saw the condition of the cabinets and showers and especially the non toilet paper...She even told us the minimum toilet paper for renters is 2 rolls per bathroom ..I wrote to the owner, he was very apologetic and explained he rented the house to non VRBO people who were carpenters and they were supposed to set up the house for us ...THEN, he talks to those same people and they denied everything ..Of course they did ! I have rented 2 other times through VRBO and we were delighted with both. I have pics of all our concerns. Choose another place.

Owner's Response: This review comes a little after we refused your groups request for $1200 it is very unfortunate that you waited until you returned home after your 10 day holiday and then waited a further 2 weeks , perhaps the deposit refunds spurred you to contact us. Regards to how you say you found the property these items could have been easily verified and rectified replacing light bulbs and wiping a shower head and cupboards etc - would only have only taken a few minutes and would have been no problem at all ,if you had informed us, for instance the renters immediately after you contacted me as they had a burst pipe, Lawrence was there within half an hour and the pipe was fixed,I do not understand why you did not contact us? I am pleased that you managed to switch the showers on and off they have not been a problem before I note that you have not brought up some of your other concerns in your emails to me such as, the steps down to the sea not being to USA construction code, the cutlery draw not the average size and that the pump on the water dispenser bottle provided for you could have been removed and something put in by previous renters ? - very pleased to hear that that was not the case and you are all alive and well. I guess you got the information locally that the previous renters before you were carpenters as I never mentioned that, I hope you did not mean this in a derogatory way as i work in a similar business and by the way Jesus was one. I took up the case that the previous renters house keeper did not leave the house in good order as you say they refuted this and provided two references from their last rentals one of which they are now staying in again and happens to be one of the most high end properties on Sea Breeze Drive. As can be seen from my reviews I have never had such a review as yours. Admittedly the bore hole water is not helpful but the property is priced to take this into account and is stated in the details but I am very pleased to say that as we speak town water is at last being laid on.

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Perfect location to fish the flats and if you just want to hang out infront of the water. The house is on the leeward side of the island which is protected from the brutal winds at time. The house has everything you need kitchen wise. The tv has 4 stations and we brought tons of DVDs to watch at night. Bring bug spray as the bugs are bad in winter. I had stayed in Exuma before so I never ventured out. We took cabs instead of renting a car as the roads are quite bad. It was much much cheaper option. 35.00 with Venice Balsound(new Yukon xl cab) from the airport and 40.00 USD for a round trip to town.

When I return to exuma I will most definitely recommend this place.

Cheers to Tony and Jane!
