"We are a couple in our late sixties who spent three weeks in March at this charming and comfortable house, and had a truly wonderful vacation. The weather was perfect, with temperatures in the 80s and only two rainy days. The friendly caretaker met us at the airport and was extremely attentive to our every request, especially when it came to acquiring fresh seafood from her extensive network of family and friends on the small island. We loved the deserted beach just outside our back door, and watched glorious sunsets from the house's upper deck. We snorkeled almost every morning from the various beaches, returning to the wonderful outdoor shower on the house's lower deck. We had two snorkel trips further out in deep water, one from a local resort's dive boat (we purchased a day-pass) and one, arranged by our caretaker, with a professional spear fisherman who taught us how to find and open conch and provided us with huge lobsters. Because we love to cook, we purchased fresh veggies, dairy products and staples from the local grocery stores. Most of what we needed in the way of spices and cooking utensils were provided by the house owners, and we brought some dehydrated foods with us (mushrooms, tomatoes, etc). We purchased "cracked conch" from a take-out shack across from the airport, but soon learned how to make our own at the house. This is a very quiet island which suited us well. We spent our evenings reading, playing cards or watching DVDs we had brought with us. We attended a big public "Fish Fry," only to discover that that title doesn't necessarily mean there will be fish -- think chicken -- but the entry fee went to a good cause. We attended a Sunday service at one of the many churches, and I was invited back one evening to take part in a Ladies' Fellowship event that was great fun. The pastor surprised us one night by bringing us a hot and exquisitely cooked dinner which we three shared on the deck. We rented the homeowners' car, and consider it a necessity. Two bicycles were provided, but we New Englanders found it too hot for getting around that way. Our only real complaint was that the phone and internet kept going out. But this wasn't a tragedy for us because we are retired and were on vacation!
We hope to return to this house in the future as we returned to Maine happy and refreshed. Highly recommend you try it!"

"We booked this amazing placed house to celebrate our weeding and one more house to receive all our family.
Coming direct flight from Paris and Us everything was perfect.
Since the arrival to the departure we received an amazing assistance by the manager of the house Jackson Everette always available and helpful.
The house is right to an amazing beach. We feel very comfortable with all facilities and furnitures.
We are lucky thanks to our relationship in the island with the charming locals and club med we had everything to celebrate our weeding like a real star with all our family and friends in this paradise. We feel alone and very secured.
All of us are in love of this island and plan to come back again to find peace in this paradise island so beautiful most amazing beach in the world.
We fall in love in this island and get maried here.
Thank you mr Northrup your house is just charming and full of stories."

the day started with a swim in the ocean, right by the house
"Started every day with a swim in the Ocean
We were looking for a place to go for the Easter school Holiday with our daughter and I found the listings on the Web for the Bahamas, that we thought would by far go beyond our limit for a 1 week vacation, but could not be more thrilled what we found on here. We were looking for a family get away to just relax and enjoy the blue water. The house was perfect for us. Plenty of space and just a short walk to the beach. And the beach - it was like our own private island. We loved it.
Since I had never been to the Bahamas before I was a bit apprehensive, about staying on an island that has no Highway or any high rise Hotels.
A friendly "Local" was waiting for us after arrival at the airport to get us to the Vacation Home we rented in an easy 15 minute drive. Mr Walker was waiting for us and he also offered us a rental car for the week of our stay, that was a great way to get around on the island and see it all!
All without any hassle and on our flight out, he drove us to the Airport again, after the days on the Island we knew what it means to have some days in a relaxed life.
We had a terrific week there and not any of the many places we have ever been to before! I have told everyone I know that it is my new favorite place to go. I feel like I have made new friends on that Island, everybody greets you when driving by in the car or the only neighbor of that house is so friendly, that we had a nice BBQ together one evening.
This was for sure the BEST vacation home we ever stayed at and the location was at first a concern but after getting there and seeing it in real, we could not believe how beautiful it is. Every morning that beautiful water of the ocean (just as the owner shows on his pictures, actually 1 is from us that we sent as a thank you to them, nice to see this on your listing here now :-) brings back memories).
Thanks again Larry&Erika for letting us rent your perfect vacation home at this perfect place, we all returned home totally relaxed and recharged from a perfect weeks stay at your house by the most beautiful and private beach we ever saw anywhere!"
