j’ai passé une semaine à « le mandarin » à Hartswell , EXUMA en Avril 2017

L’emplacement est parfait, pas loin de Georgetown (environ 15mn en voiture) et assez proche de « little Exuma » pour permettre de découvrir les splendides plages et les bons restaurants de plage comme le fameux « SANTANA » où a été tourné le film PIRATES DES CARAIBES .

Vous pouvez sentir l’atmosphere du film même voir les photos de Jonnhy Depp et de son équipe attablés au restaurant .

Pour revenir au « MANDARIN « la propriété est construite sur les rochers surplombant la mer et les magnifiques plages désertes de MORIAH HARBOUR sont accessibles par bateau à moteur en 5 mn.

Bien qu’il n’y ait pas de plage juste devant la maison vous pouvez vous y baigner grâce au ponton tout neuf où le propriétaire amarre son bateau.

"LE MANDARIN » se compose de deux bâtiments séparés par une belle piscine surplombant la mer.

J’ai séjourné dans la partie toute neuve équipée d’une cuisine moderne toute neuve, avec salle de bains et toilettes neuves et pratiques également .

La décoration de la maison et du jardin a été très bien pensée par Jill, et Michael a étudié et fait poser une installation électrique haut de gamme, sécurisée par panneaux solaires , batteries, et générateur pour se mettre à l'abri des coupures de courant du réseau , assez fréquentes.

L’eau douce est également fournie par un énorme réservoir d’eau de pluie sous la terrasse .

« LE MANDARIN « est totalement indépendant des services publics en eau et électricité.

Les propriétaires sont très aimables, serviables et ont pris grand soin de moi.

Je recommande volontiers cet endroit pour ceux qui veulent profiter de la paix et de la nature Bahaméenne.

It was AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly dreamy. Gorgeous location. The view was breathtaking. Swimming right off the dock boasted many run ins with local marine life. Snorkeling was super fun. Not to mention the neighboring cays with their many sand bars were other worldly showcasing turquoise and white like something from a post card. This place is the perfect island setting. Immaculate digs as well. The owners were lovely hosts. I would highly recommend this property and hope to stay there again when we revisit Exuma.
