  • 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."

  • 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."

  • our second home

    "This was our 2nd year visiting Seastar. We were there 2 weeks and took a vacation within our vacation by flying to Eleuthera for a couple days. As always, we loved our stay at Seastar. Chat n chill is a great place to visit on Sunday, as that is the pig roast day! We rented a boat this time and explored the waterways and did some great snorkeling. I am sure I am addicted to cracked chicken from Charlie's at fish fry too. Plenty to do in the off season If you are adventurous. We are just glad the weather held out again in the peak of hurricane season!"

  • It really doesn't get any better!

    "We had the privilege of staying at Jericho House for the second time. We are already scheming about how we can get back there ASAP! About the house: The house itself has everything. It's very clean, amply supplied with water, towels, etc. The kitchen has a blender, microwave, dishes, pots, pans, spices, - everything needed to cook your own food. The beds are comfy. There's in room air conditioning (we didn't use them much - preferring to open the window and fall asleep to the sound of gentle waves) There's cable TV and Wife for a media fix. And the two screen doors are fantastic - we had them open all day long to let the breeze blow through the place. The surroundings: The real charm of Jericho house, at least for us, is the incredible thing that happens when you walk through the front door. You are immediately confronted with a HUGE window that looks out on the deck and ocean. Its an irresistible invitation to head outside. Once out there, well, Jericho House really begins to show its beauty. The deck - HUGE. The view - incredible! The chairs - plentiful. The ocean - spectacular. Just a few steps from the deck and you are walking on the beach. When we were there we had a nice combination of days with a bit of wave action - and days where the water was completely flat. On the flat days, we snorkelled out by the rocks. Every day we ended up strolling up and down the beach. It is magical! I think that over the course of the week we were there we saw a total of 11 people walking on the beach - it was wonderfully secluded! I should add that the grounds around Jericho House are beautifully kept with coconut trees and other vegetation. We even found a few papayas - but they weren't ripe yet. About Exuma: I can't write the review without also mentioning the charm of the island itself. This island, it's people, its laid back sense of things - all fantastic. While this is a review of Jericho House we have loved: Cocoplum beach at low tide, Tropic of Cancer beach, Santannas, the Fish Fry (on Fridays for sure), Chat 'n Chill, swimming with pigs/ sharks/ sting rays, sand bars in the middle of the ocean, feeding the Iguanas, boat tours of the Cays, a Kalik or two, Staniel Cay, wave surfing on the Atlantic side of Stocking Island, Starfish bay, exploring, the kindness of the Bahamian people, the incredible beaches everywhere, the warm ocean, fish, lobster, - everything! The problem with this review is you might want to go to JH - and take a week we want!"
