Guestbook comments from the owner

Thevine House is better than advertised! The home is new, well decorated, clean, organized and exceeded our expectations. It is in a beautiful location overlooking Moriah Harbour Cay with wrap around decks on two levels to enjoy the view. The grounds were nicely landscaped and the pool was always kept clean and inviting. The kitchen has high end appliances and every kind of cookware and utensil you could need, along with many spices. We ate most breakfasts and dinners at the house, often utilizing the large Weber grill to cook steaks, burgers, etc. We have two young children and one of our favorite activities was taking the kayaks to Moriah Harbour Cay. The beaches were stunning without another person in sight. At low tide, we encountered all kinds of sea life (sea stars, crabs, etc.). In addition, we saw a sea turtle and two dolphins swimming right in front of the house. It is a short drive to George Town with its restaurants and activities, yet far enough away to feel peaceful and secluded. Desreen (housekeeper/contact person) and Willie (pool maintenance and groundkeeper) were always friendly and helpful if we had any questions or requests. We highly recommend Thevine House for your next vacation and are looking forward to returning in the not too distant future!!

Our own private resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at The Vine House. We have rented many homes throughout the years through VRBO and HomeAway, and this one was by far the best!! First of all the location of the home can't be beat. The views are incredible from the home, and being able to kayak and paddle board right from the house was so much fun!

The home was immaculate and so well stocked. Nathalie thought of everything that a vacationer would need for a vacation. And I so appreciated how everything was labeled. That made it so easy to find and put away things. I also appreciated how nice the towels were. Often times vacation rentals have shabby towels or not enough towels. There were plenty of beach towels for our family of 5.

Outside the home was landscaped so beautifully. We felt like we were staying on a resort. There was so much for our family to do...from swimming in the warm pool, swimming and fishing off the dock, and sitting at the outdoor bar. It truly was a dream vacation.

We look forward to returning soon!!

fabulous property on the best spot in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at The Vine house. We simply fell in love with this house. It is absolutely gorgeous, well designed and has breath taking views. It has everything you could need, from beach coolers to kayaking equipment. From the moment we arrived we felt at home once again. The house is even more breath taking than on the pictures. It is very well maintained and sits on the best spot on Exuma island. Nathalie went out of her way to make it possible that we could stay at her house once again and everything was incredibly smooth; from the first email communication all the way to the check out. This house is great with children as there is lots to do around the house but equally well positioned to venture out to different beaches or to Little Exuma. We highly recommend staying at The Vine house and we hope to return once again. Nathalie- many thanks for everything!

We just returned home from 10 days at Thevine house and it was amazing! The house could not have been nicer! We were blown away when we stepped out back and saw the view! The house was absolutely immaculate and had everything we needed! We did do some exploring while on the island but mostly enjoyed our time relaxing at the house! We spent our days in the pool, snorkeling or kayaking! We saw nurse sharks, dolphins, turtles, lobsters, a puffer fish and lion fish all right in our "backyard'! The owners were extremely helpful when booking and were very quick to answer all our questions! We can't say enough good things about Thevine house and highly recommend!!

WOW!!! Totalement parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine absolument magnifique. Nous savions que ce serait beau mais c`était bien plus encore. Nous avons complètement tombé sous le charme de cette parfaite propriété. Tout est tellement bien pensé; espace, confort, équipements & intimité.... Excursions en bateau, pêche, baignades, kayaks, des bonnes bouffes et quelques fois une chef à la maison ont pour nous été des vacances parfaites ... Le ciel tellement étoilé, des dégradés de bleu-turquoise, soleil et temperature idéale WOW ... Nous gardons de surberbes souvenirs. Merci Yvon et Nathalie d`avoir partagé votre paradis et bravo pour ce que vous avez réussi à créer... Nous espérons sincèrement y retourner... Karine, Éric & Iris Québec Canada.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Exuma several times over the last fifteen years and have always had a great time! We have had quite a few different Hosts and houses but none yet compare to the well thought out accommodations, the reception from Nathalie, support from her staff at the house and the sheer beauty of the surroundings, simply gorgeous!! We reluctantly give this review for fear that it may not be available when we return. This was by far and away our best Exuma experience and would encourage you to check out this little piece of paradise. Pete and Becky Greenwood.

das schönste Haus in ganz Great Exuma

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften eine Woche in diesem wunderschönen Haus in Hartswell verbringen und waren absolut begeistert. Die Lage direkt am Wasser mit einem atemberaubenden Ausblick über türkisblaues Wasser, der tolle Pool mit dem kleinen privaten Sandstrand dabei, die Kajaks, das kleine Ruderboot und das Stand-up-Paddleboard machen dieses Anwesen zu einem Urlaubsparadies. Die Betreuung und stetige Hilfsbereitschaft bei allen Fragen rund um das Haus und Aktivitäten auf den Exumas durch die Eigentümerin Nathalie war hervorragend. Auch die Verwalterin Desreen vor Ort war immer erreichbar und stets hilfsbereit. Wir waren kurz nach Hurrikan Matthew dort und der Strom fiel fast täglich für ein paar Stunden aus, was aber dank eines hauseigenen Generators kein Problem war. Alles in allem können wir nur betonen, dass der Aufenthalt im Vinehouse und die Rundumbetreuung durch die Besitzerin perfekt waren und wir, wenn irgendwie möglich, wieder kommen werden.

Als Tipp sei noch erwähnt: unbedingt Mückenspray für die Abendstunden mitbringen!
