Where to begin. Our stay at Ida and Terrance's cottage was amazing. Our flight from Nassau to Black Point was delayed for 4 hours the morning we were to arrive. Our phones were not working so we had no way to get in touch with Ida, so obviously we were a little worried about her picking us up from the airport once we landed. Not only was she there waiting on us when our plane arrived, but she had lunch waiting for us (chicken and rice) and it was awesome! Also, provided to us at the cottage was a case of bottle water, a freshly baked loaf of coconut bread (delicious), and a cell phone to use locally. Ida thought of everything from the restaurant menus to a map of the island. My wife had mentioned to Ida on our way to the cottage how she couldn't wait to try some conch fritters and you guessed it, by the third night Ida made her some and they were very tasty. Okay, enough about how great of a host Ida is, lets talk about the cottage and island. The 1 bedroom cottage we stayed in was more like a studio. It was perfect in size for us and very clean. We had a view of the Atlantic on the front porch and the Caribbean on the back porch. The cottage sits right on the bay, so you can take a dip whenever you want. We snorkeled around the bay and around the beach on the other side of the island (Ida can tell you how to get there), which is about a 10 minute drive in the golf cart provided. The locals are extremely friendly and are very easy to talk to and very willing to help you if you need anything. We liked hanging out at Scorpios. You can stay there and have a few drinks or buy a case of Kalik for $55.00 and take it with you. Ida also has a boat that you can rent, which we did. Its a 17' Boston Whaler (very nice), she also provided us with a tour guide upon request. The trip is a little pricey, but definitely worth it. We stopped at 3 awesome snorkeling spots, fed the pigs and iguanas, saw Johnny Depp and Tyler Perry's Islands. It was very fun! Thank you Ida for everything. We cant wait to come back and visit in the near future!

Cant say exactly how relaxing it was. I cant get the trip out of my mind. The Starfish cottages was our home away for 8 days. Everything that has already been said is true. The bread, the Beach, The people all fantastic. Relaxing beach had the whole beach to ourselves didn't even see one person all week. Rented a boat from Ida's husband Terrance that was fantastic. We have been around the Exumas a while this was the best place yet. We did take our own snacks which is a must. Snorkeling is a must. Also learned how to crack a counch at Staniel Cay. Drank so many KALIKS the bar ran out. Already putting our plans together for another trip. I will live there at least 4 months out of the year one day. Thanks to everyone on the island that kept us fed and hydrated . An to Ida an Terrance see you soon!!! Thanks for everything. Shout out to the guys at Scorpio's and Deshmons for the wonderful food. And Ida's Sunday cook Much appreciated.

Roman & Gigi's review
We had a great stay with Ida! The Starfish Cottage is fantastic, the view breath taking and Ida did everything to make us feel good. The weather was fantastic, in 7 days here we had only half of day of rain. The beach we found on the island (ask Ida how to get there) was like the ones you see in postcards: pristine white sand beach and light blue waters. We even got some nice coral fish swimming with us for a few days! :) if you want a place to get away from everything, this is the perfect spot! In case you want to see something more crowded, you can go to Stanley's Cay where you can have a nice cocktail in the Yacht Club. Also you can visit the Iguana's Cay where you get to see and feed (only veggies) the big Iguanas and a bit further in the Stanley's Cay you get to feed and swim with the pigs! :) Thanks once again for accomodating us so good and hope to be back soon! :))) Roman & Gigi

Similar to a review below, I am also hesitant to write a rave review simply because it would be my hope that this remains, for the most part, one of the undiscovered gems of the Exuma Cays. This was our first time in the Bahamas, and of all the Caribbean destinations we have traveled, this is by far the most fun we've had! Ida and Terrence are wonderful hosts; this stay will exceed your expectations in ways that cannot be put into words! The locals are all so friendly and unlike many other Caribbean islands, actually make a point of getting to know you...we even had a few of them over to our cottage for drinks one evening. We had been given nicknames by the second day of our stay Lorraine's mother makes the most amazing coconut bread--she bakes it out of her charming home kitchen behind Lorraine's cafe. If you are an experienced boater- renting a boat is a must in order to experience all the Exumas has to offer. We rented a boat from Raymond 'Breadboy', expensive but worth it. Ida and Terrence also have a very nice boat available as well. Having the golf cart included was a huge bonus- we did a lot of birdwatching and exploring on remote dirt roads and deserted beaches on Great Guana Cay. If you are looking for resort-type ammenities and lots of sightseeing and tourist attractions, this is not the place for you! But if you are looking to get away from it all and experience the 'real Bahamas', this is the place for you! I would only recommend bringing with you as much food as possible as groceries can be limited and fairly pricey. We brought pasta, rice, crackers, chips, trail mix, oatmeal, spices, etc. and ate very well. Thank you Ida, you were a wonderful host and we are looking forward to our next trip to Black Point :)

Nothing less than perfect

My three week stay in Ida's cottage was everything I hoped for. The seclusion gave me 13 hours sleep each night, The cottage was well appointed and pristine. Ida was just the right amount of attentive. The views, weather and whole Island met even my unimagined needs. I have found a home away from home and am planning my next visit to my new found forever friends. Black Point, Ida and her cottages are a big piece of Heaven on Earth.

Solitary until you want company
Solitary until you want company
I wanted to get away from it all, even hotels and resorts, to something really different, with nice and friendly people, a culture different from mine, and lots of sun and sand. I found it at Black Point in Ida's Sand Dollar cottage. There I paced from front porch overlooking the pounding Atlantic to back deck looking out over the busy bay. With my binoculars I could keep track of the guest boats and what was happening at the dock, especially when the mail boat came in on Wednesdays. That's when I know to hop on my golf cart and get myself in on the action. I watched the tide going in and the tide going out and knew when I could climb down the cliff and walk halfway across the bay on sand. I was cosseted with Lorraine's mother's wonderful coconut bread, Ida's conch fritters and trinkets -- like the papaya from her tree, so delicious with the young coconut her hired man, Delmore, got for me. I rode my golf cart into town and had lunch of fried conch at Lorraine's restaurant, and a rum drink at Scorpio's, did my laundry at Ida's laundromat and talked to tourist boaters who meet there to socialize and do their laundry. Nice people, natives AND tourists, but Ida is simply superlative. My favorite thing about the cottages? The spacious shower, the well-appointed kitchen, the comfy couch, and those two porches, front and back. And that gorgeous sandy, sunny solitude. Thanks, Ida, and Terrance, and Delmore, and Lorraine, and Lorraine's Mom and Lorraine's husband. I heartily recommend Ida's properties.

Amazing Vacation Spot!
Amazing Vacation Spot!
You can not go wrong with Ida! My husband and I were looking for something quaint, quiet and remote.....................this is definitely it! The cottage is situated on a marvelous bay with gorgeous views from both front and back of the cottage. One side faces the Atlantic with the waves crashing into the cliffs and the back side faces the beautiful bay in Black Point. The cottage is roomy, perfect for a couple. Ida also has two other cottages that would nicely fit a family. Everything you need is there at the cottage. Ida picks you up at the airport to take you the cottage where there will be a golf cart for you to use while you're on the island. You'll also find delicious, fresh baked coconut bread waiting for you! The people here were so welcoming and friendly. We spent much of our time lounging on the beach and exploring the beautiful cliffs and secluded beaches. Ida's cottage is definitely a do-over! Ida- We would like to thank you for you hospitality and friendliness! You are an amazing hostess. Hope to return soon with our two boys! Thank you!!!

Best Place in the Out Islands!
Best Place in the Out Islands!
My husband and I island hop on our Cessna in the Bahamas each winter. Our requirements for accommodations are close to an airport, easy transportation on the island, having a kitchen, being on a beach with great views, internet and tv at an affordable price. Lot to ask!!! This cottage provided all of those and more! The owner met us at the airport with a fresh loaf of wonderful coconut Bahamian bread, kept in touch to answer questions, provided us with a golf cart as part of the cottage rental...all for a very afforable price. The cottage location on a ridge between the sailboat filled bay and the Atlantic gave us spectaculor views from all windows in the cottage!! New Construction, very clean!!! Will go back every year!!!!
