FABULOUS 'SEA OF ABACO' VIEW AND THE HOUSE WAS PERFECT FOR US!
"We have stayed at Driftaway before and are always impressed when we arrive to find it so clean, well maintained and stocked with everything we need to have another amazing holiday. This time was our 20th anniversary so this was a very special vacation. With the north facing front porch and the south facing deck we enjoyed them both as we got ready for our day, enjoyed our breakfast and then later in the day for sunning and relaxing some more.
We spent almost every day this trip on the beach (Tahiti Beach and Nipper's by boat and in the water just in front of the house.) We visited the bay just across the way at Matt Lowe’s Cay to visit the many turtles that appear to call that area home.
We love how quiet the area is. We never once heard the neighbors during our 7 night stay. We had everything we needed right there; snorkeling, swimming and relaxing. Being inside the gated community at the end of Eastern Shores Point makes this a quiet, calm and private place to stay. Not like a resort with activities and lots of people. This is a total get away and we will be back to this house again! It was comfortable, clean, well appointed, we cannot say enough about it! Thank you! We will definitely return and we highly recommend Driftaway to families and couples. Thanks again Bob and Linda!"

"And what a paradise Michelle and Joy have put together at the Nutty Mermaid! This was a great find and we will definitely visit again. Each day started on the patio with all five in our party watching the sun rise. No alarms were set; the sun rise there was that amazing! The remainder of our days were spent snorkeling around the coral outcroppings just off the beach in front of the house, paddle boarding, sailing, and relaxing in the amazing water. We also rented a boat from Rainbow rentals in Marsh Harbour and toured Hopetown and snorkeled Mermaid Reef just off the coast of Marsh Harbour. (I highly recommend visiting this reef if you have young children or first-time visitors to the Bahamas! It is 6-8 feet deep in crystal clear water and loaded with amazing fish!)
The house has all the comforts of home including a great kitchen with a gas stove and oven as well as a gas grill on the patio for grilling, satellite TV, WiFi. We took advantage of the grill nightly and enjoyed dinners on the patio. The TV and WiFi were great amenities, but we did not use them. It honestly felt like we were walking into our own home situated in paradise and not a rental property. Great job, Michelle and Joy! See you again soon."

"A spring break to remember! We got a taxi from the airport to the grocery store, stocked up and taxied to Blue Wave boat rental. We are in our 60's with a 14 yr old granddaughter. My husband had not driven a boat since 1968, but all went well. The cottage was perfect for us and location is superb!!! Our granddaughter had so much fun on the private beaches looking for shells and swimming. We went to different Cays for lunch. Loved the privacy of the cottage! Would love to return."

"We had a great time at Villa Tatutina and used this location as a home base. It's the perfect 'home" destination and then every day we ventured out to a different destination. It's big enough where everyone can have their own space to do what they want. The grounds were beautiful and the owner was very accommodating. The pool area was inviting and fun. The kitchens are great and we took full advantage of having them. We also felt safe and would not hesitate to return."
