  • A Piece of Paradise

    "My husband and I are so glad we chose to stay at Ida's place! She was very helpful from booking our reservations, upon arrival and throughout our stay. Her cottages are truly a piece of paradise and I highly recommend staying here-you will not be disappointed! The views are amazing, the cottage is very comfortable and includes all the necessities of being at home. The golf cart was great for navigating the island and we rented her boat for a day which was loads of fun! Definitely a must! We drove out to Staniel Cay and Big Majors to see the swimming pigs. So much fun! While in Black Point, we ate at DeShamond's for every meal! The food was delicious and prepared fresh. You should definitely order a loaf of homemade coconut bread while on the island, amazing! My husband and I are in love with the Bahamas and the beauty of this secluded island. The water is clear and blue-all seen from your front porch at Ida's beachfront cottages. We truly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to go back!"

  • Love Swept Away!

    "We had some challenges getting to Staniel Cay. Our flight was delayed out of Newark to Nassau due to plane maintenance issue and we missed our connection flight to Staniel Cay. We ended up spending a night in Nassau. Barry, thank you for going the extra mile helping us get to Staniel Cay! You checked in with us as we arrived, making sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our vacation. Milly (housekeeper) is very sweet. She picked us up at the airport, showed us how to get around town and everything else we needed during our stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and letting us use your golf cart! We love the décor of the house. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and just admiring the beauty of the island. Your Swept Away home is the perfect location on the island. Very close to stores, restaurants and quiet beaches. We loved the beach closest to the Swept Away home. It’s always quiet there and made us feel like we have the whole island to ourselves. People on the island are very friendly. We enjoyed eating local foods and buying fresh homemade bread from Emil’s. The beaches here have the most pristine water we’ve ever seen. We loved visiting the pig beach. We will be back for sure to create new memories!"

  • 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!!"

  • AN OUT ISLAND EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER

    "If you’re reading this, you probably understand the realities of Out Island life: food stocks are hit & miss, restaurants & stores are sometimes open & often closed for no known reason, & you can’t equate spectacular natural beauty with luxury living at this price point. Nonetheless, we’re delighted to recommend Raymond & Ulrisa’s rentals in Black Point, Exuma. You can watch the sun rise from the hammock on your front porch & see it set from your back porch. That alone makes this wonderful home worth the price of admission! Though Raymond was very busy with his businesses, he was always accessible to answer questions & point us in the right direction. He got us a great guide, Ralph, though we would have enjoyed having Raymond’s hands-on touch as some of the other reviewers did. Ulrisa made us a lovely dinner one night & we ended our week with a visit to their home on our final evening in Black Point. We had a boat for the week – a great idea if you like to explore. We brought a small GPS loaded with Bahamas charts, had an orientation trip with Ralph to mark key waypoints like the swimming pigs, Thunderball Grotto, & the Exuma Land & Sea Park, and afterward we had the confidence to push our limits & explore 3 hours north & enjoy some of the uninhabited beaches nearby. The house was clean & well-appointed. Raymond & Ulrisa kept our golf cart charged & ready to go. Everything in the house was in good working order. The beach out back was a great place to float the hours away & there were several vantage points nearby to enjoy superb sunsets. The star shows were spectacular, with the Milky Way clearly visible overhead. The small bluff brought constant nighttime breezes, so bugs weren’t a problem. The settlement of Black Point, 5 minutes away, was charming & welcoming, so long as you don’t expect air conditioned restaurants or stocked supermarkets. The government dock is a great place to just hang out. There were a few things that we would be willing to pay more for on a subsequent visit: A decent night’s sleep was hard to come by on the hard bed, the dive ladder on the boat was a challenge, & access to the laundry facilities was limited to when the larger rental house was vacant. But NONE of that took away from one of the best vacations ever. If you want a vacation where the occasional comprise yields priceless memories & spectacular scenery, rent from Raymond & Ulrisa and adopt Black Point, Exuma as your island home."
