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!!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Thevine House 6/23/18-6/30/18, and the house is stunning from the moment you walk through the front door. Mrs. Burrows, the house caretaker, greeted us upon our arrival to give us a tour of the property, and was very gracious the entire visit. The layout of the house was perfect for our needs, as the upstairs bedroom allowed my parents their space, and the 2 downstairs bedrooms perfectly accommodated my self, wife, and 2 children. This house has everything you could need during your stay, from the well stocked kitchen, to beach toys, and kayaks/paddleboards. The pool was the perfect location to wind down after a long day on the beaches or being out on the boat. The private boat dock was also a huge bonus, as we were able to rent a boat from Mrs Burrows husband, and keep the boat at the house overnight for use in both Elizabeth and Moriah Harbours. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this house, and hope to return again next summer.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at quite a few vacation rentals and Thevine House is by far the nicest so far. It's a beautiful, well built home furnished with anything you may need. The grounds and pool are immaculately kept by Willie. And Desreen, the caretaker, is very friendly and quick to respond to anything we needed. Nathalie was very nice talking to and emailing with when renting and very helpful with information about the island and renting a boat to use and keep at the house. The only thing we didn't like about our stay was having to leave.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I read reviews. I read lots and lots of reviews before we travel, and we travel often. When I read the reviews for Thevine house I was hopeful 68 reviews couldn't be wrong. As soon as we arrived I knew they weren't!

We traveled with our two year old with plans to cook in, rent a boat, explore, relax, enjoy the marine life and nature, and enjoy the property's amenities. If that sounds good to you, this is your place!

The kitchen was perfect for someone who likes to cook! The water is filtered, the appliances were great, and we found every possible kitchen utensil we could have asked for, down to a salad spinner and cookie sheets. The knives were even sharp (this means something when you cook in most nights)! It was great having a grill, and the dining table and view were perfect!

Compared to other properties we looked into, we liked that Thevine house had a boat dock we were able to use for the week. It was super convenient and offered us another option each day on things to do and a different way to explore! We used the kayaks and the paddle board a little- they were another nice touch that gave our family options! The property has a small man made beach our daughter could play in to dig in the sand, and chairs for lounging. Nathalie emailed before our arrival asking if we needed anything, and additionally supplied more sand and pool toys than you can imagine! There are also plenty of life jackets, folding chairs for use, beach towels, and snorkeling gear. The pool is beautiful and clean, with an amazing view! We loved being able to switch from the boat or beach to the pool in the afternoons! It was also nice I could start dinner and still have an option for outdoor play for our daughter!

The natural setting was beyond explaining! From the property we saw nurse sharks, sting rays, fish, turtles, and even little reef fish in the shade in the boat slip. Moriah Key was our favorite daily exclusion! When the tide went out we could beach comb and relax in super shallow water with our little one for hours! We found beautiful shells, sand dollars, and starfish! The beauty is indescribable! We kept talking about how you see pictures of places like that and believe they're enhanced or in some remote place no one ever really gets to go to, only you're actually looking at that place yourself!

The house was clean and comfortable. The property was breathtaking! Nathalie and her team were a dream! We cannot wait to return!

Secluded Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location is AMAZING! Far better than expected. We had five adults and a 14 mo old. We had everything we needed. There are a lot of steps to take into account but we did a great job of barricading. The water and location are great. Plan on cooking though because the restaurants in the area are hit or miss for being open and the only highway on the island is pothole paradise. The owners are fantastic to work with as well!! We will be back!!!

Amazing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

As all the reviewers have said, the Vinehouse is amazing. The location is quiet and beautiful. The house is like living in the lap of luxury. What a design. Hats off to whoever designed it. The outdoor spaces are plentiful and beautiful. The house was so comfortable for us and our three teens. The house is incredibly well stocked. We didn’t need a thing. Desreen and Willie and all the other workers keep the house and grounds in tip-top shape. If you need them, they come quick. We used the kayaks daily until we rented a boat from Drex. Then we had a lot of fun zipping around this area (sometimes getting out and pulling the boat across small low spots too). That can’t be helped if you want to go out to the other side of Moriah Cay where the most beautiful beaches are. We hiked to the abandoned house on Man o War Cay that you can see in the telescope. Beautiful views but wear good shoes for glass and nails. This pool is perfect for family games of volleyball. (Bring or buy the small plastic 6-8”’ balls). We played almost every day. It’s great fun in the early evenings if the sun has warmed the pool. We did Sugar Adventures full day tour. I highly recommend it. We also rented a boat one day from Minn’s when it was a strong north wind and a bit too windy for us to use Drex’s boat here. Tooling around Elizabeth Harbor was fun. We climbed to the stone marker for amazing views. Lunch at St. Francis was excellent and service was fast. So thank you to Nathalie and family for making our vacation so memorable with the use of this beautiful house. The only problem I see is this house has spoiled us for all future rentals. I’m sure we will always compare every house we rent to this one.

Perfect week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Vine House was truly a dream vacation - it is the best vacation property we have every stayed at!

Working with Nathalie leading up to our trip was so easy - she was always responsive and accommodating and made sure everything was set up before our trip. Desreen and Willie made sure we were well taken care of during the week, and promptly addressed a power outage we had mid-week. Desreen also helped us to pre-stock with a few necessities and Kaliks as everything is closed on the island on Sunday. We also met Yvon later in the week, who generously took us out on his boat. It was an amazing day - you can see why he loves Exuma so much!

The house is in immaculate condition, with so much room for everyone to have their own space, and equipped with everything you might possibly need - snorkelling equipment, BBQ, coolers, kayaks, paddle board, loungers, everything you need in the kitchen to make meals..The only thing nicer than the house is the incredible view that can be seen from every angle out the windows and on the multiple wrap-around decks! The sandy "beach" and pool were cherries on top. We spent every day out on the water exploring Moriah and MOW cays - just a few minutes by kayak. We saw sharks, stingrays, turtles and fish every day (from both the house and out on the water).

Easy to get to Georgetown from the house for groceries, and a short drive to Little Exuma and Tropic Breeze (one of our favorite restaurants on the island!). Prime Island Meats is another favorite - a little further north of Georgetown but a must visit, especially if you plan to cook some meals at home.

This was our third trip to Exuma (the couple with us was visiting for the first time) - we can say without a doubt that we will be back next year and we can't wait to stay at the Vine House again!
