Best vacation ever!
We had been planning this graduation vacation for my large family of 8 plus friends, making 12 total guests. The property was amazing and accommodated all of us well. The kitchen was amazing, everything you could need was there and in excellent condition.
Martin was great and communication with him and with the owner was easy.
We heard many excellent things in town about the owner, we will be back soon!!
Great place for a family reunion
We so enjoyed our stay here! Perfect for a family get together. Plenty of room to accomodate our family of 9 adults. Wish we could have stayed longer! Kitchen was large and well equipped. House was clean and well kept. Having the beach and boat dock on site was perfect for us. Enjoyed the turtle who frequents the area. So peaceful and beautiful - I would highly recommend this property!
Nice, quiet and safe location but weathered and remote
First, let me say that everything was professional by the staff that watched over the house and the boat. The house is a ways off the beach and boat dock area but it was beautiful and private. The beach was small but the water was amazing and it was a gentle slop. There was even a small turtle hanging out by the boat dock and we caught a delicious snapper right off the each. In retrospect I wish we would have made the effort to walk down and enjoy the beach better but since it was out of sight it was sort of out of mind. The bugs are relentless so bring bug repellent if you want to take in the amazing evenings. The bugs get a little more aggressive and larger as the night goes on. In hind sight I regret not spending more time in the evenings at the beach but the boys did fish down there at night. The boat was nice to have but small so we rented a larger boat to accommodate us. Driving the boat proved more difficult than we had anticipated due to low tides that made getting in and out at certain times impossible or very difficult. You had to know what you were doing and where the channels were or you would be doing a lot of walking and pulling the boat. There were also not a lot of restaurants close and the grocery stores were limited and costly. But if you are OK cooking and cleaning up there are options. If not, I would opt for the chef option.
The kitchen was very well stocked but had seen some wear and tear. The bedroom and bathroom in the main house are in need of updating. The master suit was updated and very pretty, and the kids bungalow was good. it was nice for them to have their own space and bathroom. The beaches and waters in Exuma are incredible and even in this little harbor area, the water is crystal clear. You definitely feel like you are out on a deserted isle, and if your looking for a quiet place to chill, this would be great for a few couples with kids. Don't miss Santana's and The Chat and Chill. This house would have been rated higher if not for the run down bedroom and bath in the main house and the kitchen. Also be aware that restaurants are hard to get to by land and by sea. But we did enjoy our stay.
We stayed for a week, good location near multiple beaches, private beach and docks on property, the caretaker was available and accommodating but not overbearing. Property has everything you would need for an island getaway. The property has multiple buildings which was perfect since we were staying with children but still allowed the adults to have some evening fun. Exuma is an amazing place and the property is highly recommended
Thank you. That is very kind. We are glad you enjoyed it. Hope to have you back one day down the road.
An amazing place and amazing people
This is a very unique property and we had an amazing time. To have your own beach and marina and boat really is truly amazing and this place has it all. The owner and managers were extremely responsive and we couldn't be more happy with our stay.
We were 6 adults and 7 kids and it was plenty of space. We Generally cooked for ourselves and enjoyed long lazy days boating and swimming.
Highly recommended if you are looking for something quiet, remote, and still only 15 mins drive from town.
Excellent stay !
Great villa, well equipped, good to have 3 different houses. And the view is simply incredible ! We were well received and taken care of.
All good !
Calypso Hill is situated on the shores of the Exumian waters. It is a place for families, honeymooners or solo travelers to rest, relax, and enjoy what Exuma has to offer. You can laze on the beach in the sun or take the boat out for the day to visit the surrounding cays. It is very peaceful and quiet in Exuma and that is why it is such a special Family Island. Take the water taxi to Chat N' Chill or do the full day boat tour to Staniel Cay to see the swimming pigs. You can go out on a dive with Dive Exuma or just do a two hour snorkeling trip. We do have wifi so you can still enjoy paradise while you are connected to the rest of the world. Rent a car and drive from one point of the Island to the other end while visiting all the small beaches. If you enjoy fishing, we can arrange for you to go deep sea fishing, reef fishing, or bonefishing. We recommend renting a vehicle as the shops and restaurants are a 20 minute drive from Calypso Hill. The rent a car agencies are Airport Car Rental, Berlies, or Thompsons.
