"We had four adults and four children (7, 14, 15 & 17 all boys) in our recent stay at Bananaquit. Our family does VRBO about 4 to 7 times a year and as mentioned in earlier reviews, this is one of the most well stocked homes we have rented (beach towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, spices and condiments, etc). We thoroughly enjoyed being able to snorkel right out in Bita Bay where we saw many different kinds of fish, a sting ray and even some coral (too bad it wasn't lobster season as we saw three HUGE lobsters every day down in one of the crevices right in front of the house!) And even though we swam in Bita Bay every day, we also swam in the pool every day, especially our kids...it was nice to have that option too! As others have mentioned, the central location was nice, however we didn't fully appreciate it until later in our stay as we discovered just how far some of the other properties are from town. Our favorite meals were at the Green Turtle Club, Ballyhoo's and Macintosh. Most of the other places we ate at had good food, but it took a really long time (3 hours at Pineapple's) to get it. We rented a boat from Donny's for the week and had great fun exploring the other islands (swam with sting rays and sharks on Manjack, fed the pigs on No-Name, swam in the amazing turquoise water at Treasure Cay and the highlight, was snorkeling off Pelican Cay which Donny showed us where to anchor!)
I want to extend extra praise for both the owners and the management of Bananaquit. Mary, the owner, continually answered all my emails and questions leading up to our stay and gave out helpful information regarding the property as well as the island. Julie, the manager was waiting for us at the ferry dock before we even arrived. She responded to all our questions and was available by cell phone for questions that came up during our stay. Upon departure, she again showed up right on time to help us get back to the ferry and waited with us until we boarded. Once we got back to Treasure Cay and were headed to the airport, we realized a cell phone had been left at the ferry dock. Our taxi driver called the management company, and they located Julie, who found the cell phone and then made sure it got put on the next ferry! Then the taxi driver picked it up and brought it to the airport!!!! AMAZING! Talk about customer service! They all went above and beyond!! Thank you for a wonderful stay on Green Turtle Cay!"
