"This was our first trip to Great Exuma and it was truly amazing. I cannot say enough great things about the people, the island, the gorgeous scenery and this amazing house on the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous. The owner was a pleasure to work with and the house lived up to all our expectations. Can't wait to go back again."

"Beautiful & relaxing while at Exuma, Bahamas. One of the only vacations I have come home from relaxed physically & mentally. We had to 2 families in this particular condo (4 adults & 5 kids ages 5 years - 15 years old). The condo is very equipped with everything you will need & very updated. The grounds are clean & well cared for. There is a friendly property manager on site, which is great if you run into any problems. The view is absolutely breathtaking & the location is great. There are 2 king beds, 1 queen bed & 2 twin beds, so it was challenging to sleep 9 people (we had to sleep the youngest with the adults). The ocean water was a little chilly during March but we were able to still swim. Some days the waves were much stronger then others. But, luckily you have a beautiful pool & hot tub to enjoy also. Food was VERY expensive & not many options (example: box of Frosted Flakes-$9.00, Ritz crackers-$8.00). No fine dining on this island. My advice is to bring as much non perishable items you can. Others had stated they froze & shipped their meals/meats. I can understand why since the meat market did not have much of a selection (this includes fish). I recommend renting a car if you plan to leave the condo to even make grocery store visits, since nothing is really close. The grocery store is around 15-20 minutes drive one way. If you are planning to go to Little Exuma/Tropic of Cancer it is around a 45 - 1 hour drive one way."

"The home is fantastic, and the location is ideal for a quiet and relaxing stay. The beach, which is steps from the deck/pool area was mostly deserted. The gazebo was perfect for meals outdoors overlooking the beautiful ocean and the pool. An added benefit was the hot tub and comfortable lounge chairs. The house was well appointed and each of the four bedrooms was spacious, comfortable with large bathrooms, ideal for our family with adult children, although the lay-out and beach location would also be great for families with small children. We will definitely be back."

"Our multi generation family has recently returned from holidaying in beautiful Exuma. We have rented world wide and staying at Mermaid House was one of our best experiences. The pictures do not do it justice..The house is situated on the best part of Tar Bay. Fabulous white sand with not a stone to be found on the ocean floor. Gorgeous sunrises from the deck (or your bed if you have one of the two front bedrooms. )Kitchen has enough cutlery/dishes/glasses for the entire island. There is Apple Tv, DVD's and Wii to play. (our 5 yr old grandson had to bowl every night before dinner!). The Annex is newer and is clean and bright (altho no ocean views). The top deck provides gorgeous views (at this time of yr best at sunset as too hot during the day!). The teak outside furniture is plentiful on the deck and there are loungers and beach chairs for the beach. Tons of beach toys for kids (as well kiddie bed/high chairs/pottie if needed). A highlight for our family was the outdoor shower. Never used the indoor! Jeniece is there to help with any needs and local stores have more than enough supplies. We enjoyed Prime Island Meats which is 4 mins down the road and will take Credit card with no surcharge.
But it is the water...that glorious blue water and the miles of beach to walk which is the main draw. Go to Exuma and enjoy Mermaid House. You won't be disappointed"
