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!!

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!

Second stay for us at Thevine House, this year for three weeks - wonderful as always, everything we loved about the house during our first stay, we simply enjoyed it for a longer span of time. It is hard to think of new superlatives with which to describe our stay, other than to say it was everything we had hoped for - and the weather was even better than last year! The staff are tremendous, friendly and supportive. Any time we had questions or concerns, they had answers, and they had them fast. Nathalie, as always, is an absolute pleasure to work with. We have rented vacation homes several times in the past, and Thevine House is by far the best experience we have had - the views are astounding, the vibe is chill, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Exploring Great Exuma via The Vine House

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay at The Vine House was absolutely wonderful! This was our second time to Great Exuma but our first time renting a house, and it definitely exceeded all of our expectations.

About The Vine House: We loved that the pictures were true to form as far as the layout and décor of the home. When you walk into the house, you are greeted by breathtaking views! The open living/dining room is awesome for enjoying a nice cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine after dinner in the evening. The kitchen literally had every utensil you could need which made cooking meals so enjoyable.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were also just as pictured and very comfortable for our group! We loved that there were plenty of games down stairs, and the pool table was also a hit. The porches are incredible, and we enjoyed stargazing at night from the top deck.

Our favorite part about The Vine House had to be the outdoor amenities. We rented a boat from Elvis per Nathalie’s suggestion, and it was extremely convenient to be able to leave the boat at our dock for the week. We took the boat out every day for the five days we rented it, and this was our favorite part of the trip! Being able to explore the surrounding area was simply stunning. If you enjoy exploring and traveling to deserted sandbars and islands, we highly recommend the boat rental. Also, after being on the boat all day and finally returning to The Vine House, we loved being able to watch the sunset from the pool. In addition, the kayaks and paddle boards were an awesome treat as well! It was amazing to be able to see all kinds of marine life from turtles, numerous fish, and even giant starfish right out in front of the house.

Lastly, I cannot rave enough about the ease of setting up this trip through the owner, Nathalie. She had packets of information already put together with any and every recommendation in regards to dining, fishing, boating, and even spa info just to name a few. She was very helpful with any questions we had, and she really made the experience of us renting a home for the week so incredibly easy.

Overall, we absolutely loved our stay at The Vine House and highly recommend you book your trip immediately! Staying here for the week really was Heaven on Earth! Thanks Nathalie, we hope to visit again, soon!
