  • An island getaway from the city life of the islands

    "If you're looking for a quaint secluded getaway from city life of the this is it! Just back from a weekend stay at Raymond's place, and I'm ready to go back :). The amenities were second to none....the hospitality of Raymond and his wife were even better! We enjoy every minute of our stay...from the tours of the cays (those owned by the rich and famous and those owned the the iguanas and to the day spent on the cay's best beaches..with just the sound of the waves and the cool ocean breeze. Thanks Raymond and Ulrisa... and your family for a wonderful weekend!"

  • True Paradise!!!!

    "I don't know where to begin on our two week trip to Black Point Cay. I started researching places to stay in the Exumas about a year ago. I came across this home on the water and couldn't believe the photos. I decided this was the place and made contact with the owner. Henry was extremely accommodating and gave us all the details with regards to the property and will work with your budget. The next thing you know we arrived on June 18th 2014 and immediately was greeted at the airport and escorted to the property. I can surely tell anyone the property photos do not do it justice. When you step foot on the property it will take your breath away. You have two oceans within a one minute walk. I couldn't decided on what side I was going to have my coffee in the morning. The locals are very helpful when you are looking for something or may need to make dinner reservation, which I highly recommend. Deshamon's was a great restaurant with great Bahamian food. I think we ate there every night. Scorpio's has a great Happy Hour and both places will accept Visa. Lorraine's Café has bread to die for, but if you can't get it there Deshamon's (Dianne's mom) can facilitate the request as well. Henry's place has a boat for rent and I highly recommend you take advantage of it. A guide upon request would also be helpful (Extra cost for guide but worth every penny) since they know the hidden spots. I recommend DJ who was our guide and the kids loved him. Henry really makes this a truly relaxing vacation. If you are looking for complete R&R and just want to get away from it all then just email Henry and make it happen. A few extras that you need to know before coming, I recommend you send a list of groceries you would want waiting for you and don't wait last minute. This way you have all your basics there because getting groceries on the island can be slow since most of it comes by boat once a week. Henry can surely help with this before you arrive but make the arrangements. The other thing is bring enough cash, although there are two places to pay for dinner, all your groceries would be cash. I cant recommend how much, but food and drinks can be a bit more than what you are used to in the US. I can truly say that nobody could walk away after staying here without being taken away. The houses are exceptionally maintained and extra linens for extended stays. There is a washer and dryer for guest use along with detergent. BEST PLACE EVER! We will be back in 2016!!"

  • Perfect for us

    "My family and I stayed for a week in October and The Beach Shack didn't disappoint. The location is perfect with a stunning sunset view. The cottage was very clean and was fully equipped. Anytime we looked for a kitchen item or bar utensil, we found it. We had no complaints for our entire week! There were four of us and it was the perfect size. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. It is exactly what it's called, a Beach Shack. It's not new and fancy but if you are looking for a comfortable, affordable place to stay on Staniel, you won't be disappointed. The owner just added a new charcoal grill and since it was off-season and the yacht club was closed for renovation (except the bar), we cooked most of our own meals. The views from the cottage were stunning where you could watch the sunsets, the boats going by or nurse sharks and stingrays swimming by your door. The outdoor space was large with a gazebo, comfortable furniture and a hammock. We found Staniel Cay a couple of years ago and plan to go back at least once a year and we definitely will stay at the Beach Shack again. My only suggestion would be to add some solar outdoor lighting, there were rope lights but we didn't find an extension cord to plug them in. Thank you to the owner for allowing us to use her property."

  • I love Ida

    "I've been here twice already (once in a group of 9 we booked 3 cottages and once 3 of us slept in one of the 2 bedroom cottages). I'm going again in February with my family. Ida is amazing and her cottages are beautiful. They are overlooking the most amazing beach and bay which has to be seen to be believed. Inside they are done up so nicely and have everything you need. The golf carts that come with the cottages are so handy, Ida picks you up from the airport in her big car, and arranges for you to rent a boat (they have different sizes) for the day. It's close enough to see the swimming pigs, iguana beach, the sharks at compass cay, thunderball grotto and Staniel cay yacht club. I've recommended for so many people to go here, it is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. The cottages are right above the beach so you can pop up and down all day. She has sunloungers on the beach and a new gazebo for some shade. I can't recommend this place or Ida herself more. I can't wait to go back again!"
