'Sweet Ting' is a lovely guest cottage, situated on a 2 1/2 acre waterfront, called Done Reach Villa, located in Hartswell, Exuma. The studio style cottage has a private entrance and parking area along with wrap around decking. The loft cottage, which is tiled throughout, has 15' high peaked cypress ceilings The kitchen, dining and living spaces are separated by a movable privacy screen. You have a choice of using the air-conditioning, and/or ceiling fans or opening up to the lovely island breezes.
At the water's edge, you will find the pristine blue-green gin-clear waters which have made Exuma the yachting capitol of the Western hemisphere. KAYAKS are available for guests, allowing exploration of sand banks of the Bahamas National Trust park at Moriah Harbour Cay which is located directly across from the property Whether you are fishing from the dock or bone-fishing on the flats, snorkeling , or swimming , it is all available by lovely meandering paths from the cottage and through the villa gardens.
The property location is directly across from the eastern end of Moriah Harbor Cay, accessible in minutes by kayaks or the 11' Boston Whaler. The bonefish flats are directly opposite the property and a few minutes more of paddling brings you to the most beautiful, pristine and quite often deserted beach for walking, running or swimming You can also grab the umbrella and some lunch and just spend the day, imagining you are on a deserted island with not a care in the world - your private oasis.
Swimming, snorkelling and fishing are just a few of the things that can be done right from the private dock of 'Done Reach'. From the hilltop deck, you can view those who enjoy bonefishing, kiteboarding or kayaking. There are two single kayaks and one double kayak available for the guests' use. Arrangements can be made for bonefish guides or kiteboard lessons. If you choose not to participate but to be a spectator,
pull up a deck chair and just enjoy the spectacular view.
The owner of the property welcomes any questions and is happy to be of assistance.
Will be happy to provide French or Italian speaking person with any detailed questions.

It was during my very first visit to Exuma in 1983 that I realized this was one very sweet place. Coming from a very different environment in the northeast of U.S., it seemed such a breath of fresh air. Each year, I returned, staying longer, meeting new friends, until finally, the decision was made to build a home. The beauty of the island never ceases to amaze me, even after all these years.
Why Johanna chose George Town
After exploring different areas of the island, this was the location that appealed to me most. There was initially just acres of thick bush and a path had to be made to ascend to the ridge. Climbing a tree was the best way to see what the view had in store for us from the 52' elevation. From the water's edge it was beautiful - from the ridge, where the house would be situated, it was breathtaking!

Pictures were not doing this property justice. Absolutely amazing views!!!!!!
Tremendously tranquil property with breathtaking views. Could not have been happier with our experience. No issues whatsoever with our stay, and Johanna was readily available and willing to assist with anything if necessary. Definitely planning on a return visit!
Thank you so much for your 5 star review. It was a pleasure having you stay at “Sweet Ting” Guest Cottage. You were definitely 5 star guests ! Will look forward to your return visit.
Sweet Ting is a beautiful getaway. The cottage is in a great location, not far from Georgetown, and not far from the "big beach" (tropic of Cancer), and just a short paddle from Moriah Cay. My wife and I paddled over to Moriah Cay most days, and loved the deserted beach - fantastic. Johanna (and Lucky, the dog) welcomed us, and gave good advice re: supplies, places to eat (really enjoyed Santanas and Shirley's), and so on. Cottage has all the essentials from beach towels, to large fridge, good bathroom, sat TV (if you need it), wifi and so on. There are two decks - one on the cottage, and one that looks over Moriah Key. Also a dock this great for an evening relax. The over all property is large, private, well maintained. Beautiful.
Adorable cottage with beautiful views!
My husband and I stayed at Sweet Ting for a long weekend and it had everything we needed. This was our third trip to the island so we wanted something a little more out of the tourist area. Quick & easy 15-20 minute drive to town or to Tropic of Cancer/Santana's. The views overlooking Moriah Harbor are amazing, especially at low tide. We will most definitely consider staying here again. Thank you Johanna!
Loved the property--the deck with its views, the hammock near the water, and the private dock to lounge on. The cottage was great--not too small, not to big, and very clean. We used the kayak to get to the sandbar across the way. And best of all we made friends with the dog Lucky! He was the perfect companion!
Look no further... this is paradise!
My wife and I couldn't have asked for anything better. Johanna was a great host, made sure we had all we needed, and was very accommodating. The cottage itself was spacious, clean and charming. The location was peaceful, only a 15 minute drive from Georgetown and has fantastic views (especially from the upper deck - great spot for breakfast!). Best food we had on the island was at Santana's, which is a 15 min drive from the cottage. Our most memorable time in Exuma was spent kayaking from the cottage over across the bay to explore the pristine beaches and sandbars at low tide - that was just amazing! Johanna's beautiful dog (Lucky) will be the first to greet you on arrival! Extremely friendly and quiet dog who would sit outside the cottage door waiting for us to let him in! (his favourite spot is on the couch!). We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Exuma. Wished we stayed longer, would love to return one day! Thank you Johanna!
Thank you so much for the great review. It is wonderful that you traveled such s long distance to share our "paradise". Moriah Harbor Cay is exquisite natural beauty just a few minutes paddle away, and of course, Santana's is definitely island fare with special attention from owner, Dee. There is more to experience, so hope to see you again.
Bonefishing, snorkeling, kayaking and birdwatching are activiites that can be done right from the property. Kiteboarding is enjoyed within minutes on Moriah Harbor Cay - directly across from the property. From GeorgeTown (9 miles), you can rent a boat which will allow you to explore beautiful Elizabeth Harbor - a must see is Stocking Island, Chat n Chill and also there are some lovely reefs you will want to see.A most memorable day trip is traveling through the Exuma chain of islands on a chartered boat. It is a fantastic day trip where you will see the swimming pigs and iguanas, swim with the sharks, snorkel Thunderball Cave and enjoy seeing the homes of the rich and famous. While there are all these various activities, some days are just made for lounging on the cottage deck,the hilltop deck, or take the path to the water's edge, where you can fish from the dock or take a snooze in the hammock. It is all available when you stay at 'Sweet Ting' Guest Cottage.
