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!!

A beautiful house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

We did a girls trip to the Exumas and we were lucky to be able to stay in TheVine House. There were 6 of us ranging in age from 37 to 87 and the house accommodated us perfectly. Nathalie and her co-owner thought of everything when they stocked the house. The way things are organized and labeled made getting around in the kitchen so easy. We ate in every night for supper and enjoyed playing games at the large dinner table. The views from every room is so pretty and we enjoyed using the telescope to view boats out in the Atlantic. We enjoyed the pool and kayaks as well as snorkeling in front of the house. We took advantage of what the island had to offer and had lunch at Cheaters, Tropical Breeze and twice at Santana's - our favorite. Our favorite day was the private boat trip we took with Johnson's Getaway with Captain AJ and mate Ryan. We fed the pigs, iguanas and a turtle then did some snorkeling. They picked us up at the house and we had a blast...make sure you give him a call to see what all the Exumas have to offer. You also need to make sure you stop at the Tropic of Cancer beach on your way to Santana's. Desreen met us at the airport and helped us so much during our stay. If you are lucky enough to visit the Exumas make sure you book TheVine house.

Nathalie thanks so much for you help with everything I asked before our trip and letting us stay in your wonderful house. I only wish I could return next year!

What's Not To Love About The Vine House?

  • 5 of 5

Imagine renting your dream house on the water overlooking incredible natural beauty. Now multiply by that ten or even twenty times. That is "The Vine House".

Nathalie (co-owner) made the rental transaction process a breeze even though it was our first time renting on Exuma. Desreen, who is the property manager was wonderful to work with, too. She met us at the house right on time. If we had wanted she would have even met us at the airport. How nice is that? Ivon, (co-owner) was in town the day we arrived. He took the four of us out for a cruise on his boat after we settled in. He was so wonderful. We could see why he loves Exuma so much.

The Vine House was built with a high degree of craftsmanship and loving care. It shows in the overall detail in the design of the home and its functionality. Who would have thought on a sleepy little island in the Bahamas like Exuma you could find such a gem? Open floor plan? Check. Beautiful custom chef's kitchen with high-end appliances? Check. Great views from living room, dining room and kitchen? Check, check, check! Privacy? Check. Tasteful interior design? Absolutely, check! Wrap around decks on multiple levels? Check!

The only thing nicer than the view inside the house is the view outside the house. It is breathtaking. We loved the infinity pool and swam in it everyday after our daily excursions. We used the kayaks, too. The cay across the bay is so pristine. We are so glad we ventured out to it.

The location is south of Georgetown (about a half-hour drive but I drove a bit slow) and closer actually to Little Exuma.

We recommend renting a car. We'd also recommend shopping for food at Exuma Market in downtown Georgetown (especially for Breakfast items). They had the largest selection of food. There's a very nice liquor store about 100 feet from Exuma Market. It is right next to a gas station. Prime Island Meats a little further north from Georgetown was small in size but large in friendliness and quality. We recommend going there, too.

The kitchen is incredible at The Vine House supplied with all the utensils you would need. We also used their outdoor Weber gas grill a few times, too! We very much enjoyed eating several meals at home.

The natural beauty surrounding Exuma is extraordinary. When we return to Exuma we'll be staying at The Vine House.

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!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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.
