  • My wife and i tied the knot in the gazebo!

    "This property is sensational! We met the owner while having breakfast at the Abaco Inn. Upon finding out we planned a beach wedding on Elbow Cay he graciously offered his house and property, attended our wedding and threw a party for us! Very cool person!!!!!!"

  • Excellent Value

    "After staying in this unit a number of times over the last several years, I am making sure everyone who is considering renting this unit do. The unit is clean, very bright and roomy. Coral Beach is an excellent facility, safe and with easy access to the beach, Port Lucaya Market, and shopping. The Coral Reef beach bar has fantastic food, and the staff are very friendly. The owner provides a great orientation package and are great to work with. It is very hard to leave this unit when your vacation time is up. Enjoy"

  • Totally relaxing!

    "We spent a delightful week in Johanna's guest cottage being thoroughly entertained by her wonderful dogs, Lucky and Sophie. The cottage was everything described and more. We spent every morning and evening on the upper deck just relaxing and gazing at the beautiful view. Johanna's recommendations for restaurants and things to do were spot on. She was helpful in every way (she helped by making phone calls when my luggage didn't arrive) and yet was totally unobtrusive. All the beaches on Exuma are lovely, but we especially enjoyed Forbes Hill and Tropic of Cancer. Our favorite restaurants were Tropic Breeze and Santana's. When visiting Santana's, make sure to stop at Mom's Bakery right next door and across the road at the yellow shack for delicious conch fritters. We also saw a lovely sunset at a restaurant called Catch a Fire (a little pricey, but worth the view). Our first night Johanna sent us down the road (after first calling to make sure they would stay open to serve us) to Turquoise Cay. It is a nice boutique hotel and restaurant. They could not have been nicer to us. All in all, we would highly recommend Sweet Ting, and Exuma in general, to anyone who is looking for a quiet, off the beaten track vacation. We definitely hope to return! Thank you, Johanna for a great week."

Berry Islands Travel Tips

Getting to Berry Islands Vacation Rentals

The Berry Islands are a group of about 30 islands which form the far northern part of the Bahama’s outer islands. The largest and most northerly island is Great Harbour Cay. This island is the main access point. The airport receives twice daily flights from Nassau on regional domestic airlines. A second airport on Chub Cay has twice weekly flights to the island. International travelers will need to route via Nassau in order to get a flight connection to the Berry Islands. Nassau has daily flight connections with major United States cities such as Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Washington DC and New York City. It is important to check the domestic flight schedule so you can coordinate same day flight connections. If this is not possible then you may need to stay overnight in Nassau. There are many private air charter companies that will operate private flights to the Berry Islands, weather permitting. An alternate way to get there is on the weekly ferry that operates from Nassau.

Berry Islands Travel Attractions

Main attractions of the islands are their seclusion and privacy which explains why it is a popular destination for celebrities. Many of the islands are uninhabited or privately owned. This means that you can cruise around to the different cays and enjoy a private picnic on a deserted beach. There are some great reefs for diving and snorkeling, and charters can be arranged from Great Harbour Cay. One of the more popular sites is the Mama Rhoda Rock which is a shallow spiky coral reef, home to abundant reef fish and a number of resident moray eels. On Great Stirrup Cay, you can visit a lighthouse that dates back to 1863. Deep sea fishing is one of the popular pastimes and professional deep sea charter companies provide excursions from Great Harbour Cay upon request. If you enjoy sailing or cruising, you can also charter a boat to take you to explore many of the nearby uninhabited cays. Take along your sunhat and snorkeling gear so you can explore some of the shallow reefs.

Luxurious Style at Berry Islands Resorts

The Berry Islands are a typical tropical paradise. With its beautiful white beaches, calm turquoise waters and tall flowing palm trees, it is no wonder that it has become a favorite travel destination for the rich and famous. The resorts cater for the up-market traveler and many of the vacation homes reflect an elegant style that these types of travelers are used to. Many of the homes are elegantly appointed with sweeping views over private stretches of beach. In general, the vacation apartments and villas are large, spacious and furnished with stylish furniture and a host of modern appliances. Many of the homes are fully serviced, and private chefs can often be arranged upon request so you do not need to hassle with preparing meals.

Bahamas Vacation Rentals in Berry Islands

Because of their location in the Caribbean, the Bahamas enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate. The only travel caution is that the islands do fall within the hurricane belt. Tropical storms occur in the late summer months and this is viewed as the low tourist season. Seasonal rain showers do also occur through the summer months. The winter months are typically drier and often the preferred season to visit. For the Berry Islands, this is usually the peak season. Between December and April, many visitors travel to the islands to escape from colder northern climates and enjoy some relaxation in the sun.
