The house had overall very positive things!
The location is perfect, near to georgetown (center) and right over the sea!
Is a very big house with comfortable sitting, dinning ans sleeping location. We were 8 adults.
It has air conditioner so the house was cool.
Everything in the kitchen worked well.
The only big problem that the water is really salt water, so we could not remove the salt after the beach. We had to buy many gallons of water to bathe with jugs. Tony should really adress this issue by placing some tanks to collect rain water as every house nearby has. For us this was a really big problem.
Besides this the house was great!
We loved our stay at 3 little birds. The view is even better than the pictures. House was very comfortable for 6 of us and that gave the kids their own beds so it could easily have a party of 8 to 10 without trouble.
Island food was unbelievably expensive so having a kitchen helped because we took a whole suitcase of food. There are pots and pans but we also built fires in the outdoor grill. Mosquitoes are bad though and we were glad we brought spray and coils to burn out there.
The guestbook in the house is very helpful. Read it when you arrive.
As mentioned shower is saltwater. Be aware. It helps to rinse with a bottle of fresh but still you want to know that going in.
Overall loved the stay and would return. :)
Our stay at Three Little Birds was wonderful. We spent most of our time reading and sun bathing on the incredible porch overlooking the Bone Fish Flats, and kayaking around to the deserted islands. We had one fisherman in our group who managed to catch a few different types of fish, including a 30lb barracuda, right off of our dock . The house was conveniently located just a short distance from downtown George Town for supplies, and only a 20 minute drive from the unbelievably beautiful Tropic of Cancer Beach. Tony left lots of useful information at the house on where to go for food / entertainment. The water in the house is saltwater, but you get used to it. I really hope we get to Exuma and to Three Little Birds again!
This is our ninth trip to Exuma. If you have never stayed on the flats side of the island it is a different experience. You owe it to yourself to try it. The house is very new in construction was 99.9% completed during our visit. We had six adults in our party and never felt like we were tripping over each other. The bedrooms are large. The common area is large, open and bright just what you would expect for a waterfront home. The kitchen has what you need to fix breakfast and simple meals, it all works nothing fancy. The porch area is large and useable, the lower deck area is great for all day sun, very nice. So, the "rough edges" as the owner clearly states the hot and cold water is brackish, it did not really create an issue for us by it is not something you experience in the States. The house is not handicap friendly, again the owner is upfront with this so don't expect it not to be so. The caretaker Mike told us the owner is going to address the water issue. That could be months, this is the Family Islands after all. Mike is a great resource, if you have a question or issue ask him. We learned a lot just talking with him. We experienced great communication with the owner Tony. He is prompt, and professional and has provided a great vacation house to enjoy.
A final thought, if you come to Exuma and expect to get a drink when you raise your flag or run to McDonalds at any time for munchies, do yourself and us a favor. Stay in Nassau or Sandals. If however you don't mind some potholes in the road and making do with what you can find here you'll have a great experience.
After a week staying at Tony's beautiful home on Exuma, we didn't want to leave our newly found piece of paradise! With it being our first time using HomeAway and our first trip to the Bahamas we were a bit apprehensive but from our first inquiry, Tony was quick to respond and gave helpful suggestions to make our trip more enjoyable. The home was well cared for and a perfect location - we could fish on the flats right off the back sunporch, quick drive into Georgetown, and it was an ideal spot for watching sunsets or just lounging by the water. The home's caretaker lived just around the corner and was available for anything that came up. The kayaks were a great added bonus for exploring the flats and deserted islands across from the home! Absolutely great trip! Thanks Tony and Mike :)
