Clean, Airy and Roomy

  • 4 of 5

We had 8 people for 5 nights and found that there was plenty of room for everyone. With 2 screened in decks and one sun deck all were used at one time or another. The outdoor shower was also used a lot, especially after coming back from snorkeling. The provisioning was very good and plenty of ice in the refrigerator. The only problem that we had was that we popped the circuit breaker for the outlet by the garage when we were charging 2 golf carts and we did not have (nor did the caretaker have) the combination the the lock to reset it.

Rum Punch is Practically Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rum Punch 4/2017. Was 5 men celebrating my Dad's 81st B-day. Plenty of room with the 4 bedrooms and 3 baths . Extra beds went unused for our party. Could accomodate many more. The layout is excellent. Porches allow for sunrise and sunset views. Kitchen utensils, appliances, and other amenities are all there. Furniture and furnishings are very nice. Outdoor shower is the way to go!

Good location in the island as well.

The owners are very friendly and easy to deal with. Recommend highly!

Family trip to Staniel

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with more than enough space for my family of 6! The owners were nice and made sure we connected with the caretakers who were very helpful! I suggest renting a golf cart if you plan to spend a lot of time at the Yacht Club.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

In addition to being a lovely house, it is perfectly appointed with all the comforts of home. The rooms were all spacious with cozy beds and a/c units to keep us cool. The living area was spacious and the kitchen had every imaginable gadget and pan for cooking. The porches were screened and breezy too.

The location is close to the few destinations you will want to access: the market, the airport and the yacht club. They are walking distance (15 min to yacht club) but a golf cart is highly recommended (4-5 min on cart.). Rum Punch was wonderful!

Magical Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rum Punch for a weekend in March 2014 and loved it. The house is set up high so you have a beautiful view and can catch the island breeze whichever side it's coming from. It has all the modern conveniences you would expect, including fast Internet for the online junkies out there (one of the people in our group needed to make a conference call on the arrival day and it worked well). We brought our own food along and either cooked in the fully stocked kitchen or used the BBQ outside.

It's a short walk to the closest beach, the airport and to the general store. About 12 or 15 minutes to the yacht club, depending which way you go, if you want to go for drinks or a meal.

We hired a motorboat from the general store to see the swimming pigs and to Thunderball grotto, both were amazing! Then we putted around some other islands for the rest of the day and found deserted beaches to chill on.

The caretakers, Mr and Mrs Rolle were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall a very relaxing time in a stunning environment, I would definitely recommend it
