Recent Great Exuma reviews

  • Great rental- At a casual, laid-back island resort

    "We enjoyed a lovely week in this spacious and super comfortable rental. It was very roomy for our family of four and super clean, with a pleasant living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining room space. The bedrooms were very nice with kind/queen beds (great linens), and newly renovated bathrooms (very modern and attractive and the showers had great water pressure!) I will say that towels provided by the resort were thin, but the owners had nice beach towels available, and other beach amenities (beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, etc.) Although we are not big TV people on vacation, our kids loved the fact that there were flat screen TVs with cable in every room and library of DVDs. We also enjoyed great air conditioning and ceiling fans. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped. The front porch has a nice ocean view, but direct beach access is blocked by a walkway and large planting area. It is a two minute walk to the beach, but the view is partially blocked due to vegetation. Yet you can easily hear the waves and enjoy spectacular morning sunrises! Sadly, no chaise lounges-- not enough room. The patio has a round table and 4 chairs, so nice for breakfast or dinner. The swimming pool is very nice but modest by big-resort standards. But, the spectacular, Jolly Holl beach, is 10 minute walk!---Don't miss it!!. Absolutely beautiful beach!! Forget the pool, go to the beach! The staff was super friendly and helpful! The only caveat I have is that while this is a pleasant, comfortable, laid-back resort that has everything you MIGHT want (and they will try to meet all your needs), it is NOT an ultra-LUXE resort with gift shop, coffee bar, spa, etc. (You need to go to Sandals for that…). Nonetheless, we had a wonderful week. This place fit our casual needs perfectly. The restaurant/bar (complete with swinging rope chairs by the bar) is fine for tasty, basic, well-prepared beach fare (fried conch, grilled fish, burgers, salads, fries, etc). But don't expert a gourmet experience. Perfect beach/bar fare. --Not great for discriminating foodies. (We ate there twice--fine for our family, but I would have been disappointed if I had been seeking a romantic, gourmet dinner for two...). Our stay was great overall. We appreciated the spectacular beach and ocean, the super friendly and helpful staff, and the casual, low-key, laid-back experience."

  • Awesome~

    "We (two couples) stayed here for x7 days and it was everything we thought it would be and more. We had way more than enough space to spread out. The outside facilities are wonderful and the beach is fantastic. Our contact with the owners was all good-providing us w/good info about what to expect and what we might need and/or enjoy. Definitely need to rent a car as everything is spread out on the island-nice and secluded. We loved it all!"

  • Great Vacation Value

    "We have been to the Exumas a dozen times. We believe Hideaway at Palm Bay is the best value on the island. This VRBO is the best value at Palm Bay. (By best value I mean its not the Ritz but it is very, very nice for the price.) The owner is very friendly and knowlegeable about the island. Nice guy to rent from. Villa fronts to the beach and is close to pool and restaurant. The beach is okay (good for fishing and boating). There is a beautiful beach (Jolly Hall) a few hundred yards away. Several restaurants in walking distance. Rent a boat from Minns to tour the harbor. Bring snorkel gear."

  • Beautiful Island - Beautiful Island Home!

    "We couldn’t have been more pleased with our rental of Mayaguana House on our recent visit to the Exumas. It is just such a wonderful property with everything we were looking for. The 180 degree turquoise water views from the house are mesmerizing. The shaded terrace with a variety of very comfortable furnishings for snoozing, lounging or dining were ideal for morning coffee and refreshing after a busy day exploring the island. The abundant and well-kept gardens with meandering paths leading to secluded sitting areas or water access made it feel like you were at a resort. The private beach less than 2 minutes walk down a flower lined path was delightful, and just 50 ft further a private beach park all to ourselves! The great location off the Queen’s Highway in the middle of the island, close to Georgetown makes it an ideal base to explore the island. As beautiful as the outside spaces were, the inside spaces were just as nice with high quality, comfortable furnishings, great beds with good linens, A/C throughout the house which only was needed at night to cool down as the breezes coming off the water help cool the house. The house is tastefully decorated with unique island art and Caribbean sea theme. The kitchen is so well-equipped and stocked and all appliances in working order made dining in feel like you were at your own home! We didn’t want for any item, it was all there. Wireless Internet, Satellite TV and an In-House + Terrace music system all nice additions in perfect working order to keep in touch back home and add an entertainment option when desired. When venturing out to explore the beautiful island we had everything we needed, all provided by Mayaguana; beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, picnic basket, multiple coolers of various sizes, beer coozies for your Kalik! We rented a boat for two days from Minns and having all these items made it so easy to boat to our own private island and be fully comfortable and equipped! Pam, the owner, was very easy to work with; very responsive and made the rental and arrival process a breeze! We have been renting island properties for the last 10 years on our travels across the Caribbean and Mayaguana is truly one of the best we have stayed at. Highly Recommended!"
