About the Property

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

'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.

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.


Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose George Town, Bahamas:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
"Done Reach Villa" is the 2 1/2 acre property on which "Sweet Ting" Guest Cottage is located. It is a peaceful oasis in a world that quite often seems chaotic. It is quiet yet offers fun and excitement. Located only 9 miles from GeorgeTown, "Sweet Ting" Guest Cottage has become a five star favorite with the many guests who have visited.
