About Dave

The owners are the founder and the principal of Venta Prep School in Carp, Ontario. One of the owners will celebrate her 104nd birthday soon. Then she'll be coming to Exuma to get away from the cold for a couple of weeks herself.

Dave purchased this house in 1995

Why Dave chose Bahamas

I've been a regular visitor to Little Exuma for over 52 years.

What makes this house unique

This home has a unique location. This is one of the very few Exuma rentals located on a paved road. Easily accessible, but still very private, right on the shore with views over the harbor and ocean clear to the horizon. From the Deck you will see some of the most spectacular sunsets imaginable. Many of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world are nearby, as close as 1/2 mile away.

A "Booking dot Yeah!" Moment!

  • 5 of 5

The moment kids walked in and said "Wow! Cool! Awesome!" I know I made a right choice! It was a "Booking dot Yeah!" moment!! We had two families, total 3 adults and 4 kids. All loved it.

The pictures hardly do the justice. The center large open area is intimately inviting. The rooms separates to two sides wings for easy access and privacy. Decorations are heart felt. The kitchen is FULLY stocked. We planned to cook in, and had no problem with the inventory they have (but I do recommend bringing a good larger cutting knife).

The host couple is as local as you will get. Over 50 years in Bahamas, and they've got tons of scary and funny stories that got the kids eyes popping. Extremely nice people and make every effort to make our stay comfortable - they even delivered toilet papers during the first nigh as the market have closed already. They've also prepared three 5 gallons of drinking water ready before we arrived.

The location is great also. 15-20 min drive to Georgetown, but not too far with little planning of in-town activities and and market shopping times. There are fishermen selling their daily catch around 4pm at the bridge dock, which is walk-able or 1-2 min drive. Fresh fish, conch, etc. Within short drive further down, you will reach couple secluded beach locations. Oh, yeah, there is a little local bar with pool table just across the street.

Overall, it was a great choice and a great value for the price. Thanks you, Mr. and Mrs. D. for the wonderful time!!

Lastly, you will need to be conscious in using water as it is precious.

A Great Location for Chilling and Relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Ferry Side Villa was the perfect accommodation for our first visit to Little Exuma. It has a very airy open feeling, and the full windows in the great room provide an amazing view. Very spacious. Dave and Lorraine were very accommodating and provided us with lots of information to make our vacation a memorable experience. Renting a car allows easy access to great beaches, restaurants, and site seeing. Highly recommend a day out on the waters with Theo Gray. The highlight was having a family of dolphins playing right beside our boat! Little Exumas is marked on our travel calendar for next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your terrific review. You were great guests, and the house was in terrific shape when you checked out. I noted that you gave us four stars rather than the five that your review implies. Is there something you think we could have done to improve that rating?

A Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family of eight rented this house for 8 nights and it was fantastic! So bright and airy with an amazing view. Dave the manager couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We've rented many houses over the years but this one was special and they supplied us with all water we needed! No lugging heavy water containers!

What I would add to the house would be a washer and dryer which I understand is coming, and beach chairs. Thanks Dave, Tammy

Owner's Response: Thank you Tammy, we enjoyed having your family as our guests. You might like to know that the washer and dryer arrived on the island during your visit and will be installed as soon as the house is vacant. Thanks for the suggestion for beach chairs. We're looking into that. Dave

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house and it was truly like being at home. We lacked nothing. We met amazing people and were able to see and experience things you just wouldn't get at a resort. The house was truly beautiful and the view at sunrise doesn't get much better. The property manager is truly amazing going far beyond any expectation we had to make our trip special as it was our long overdue honeymoon. We explored many of the beaches on Great Exuma - the best ones were all on Little Exuma, and very close this this house. It is a bit of a drive from restaurants and the market, but we were more than happy to drive it often as it is a beautiful drive. The locals were all amazing, and the weather couldn't be beat. Remember to bring the cutter backwoods insect repellent with deet. We we'rent bothered by the no-see-ums with repellent on, but I wouldn't recommend hanging around outside at night without a good breeze.

Overall fantastic, unforgettable trip, and hope there are more in the future.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect house this was! We had a family trip, and the 4 bedrooms worked out perfectly (we had 2 couples and 2 singles). While Little Exumas is a bit far from the main drag, it is worth the drive. The house was well set up with pots/pans/dishes. We cooked quite a few meals and never felt like we were missing any essentials. The managers were super helpful and stopped by on our arrival to welcome us and give us some tips on things to do/places to go. They even stopped by with some tea when I had a bad case of bites from the nasty little no-seeum's out there.

The deck is perfect for sitting out and relaxing with a drink. Take the steps down to their little private cove - although I don't recommend swimming, my husband and his friend discovered lots of little stinging jelly fish type things when they tried that!

Make sure you take a walk back towards the bridge and and have some fresh conch salad from the stand on the side of the road. Best on the island!

I'm not sure if we'll make it back to Exumas soon but I would definitely stay here again!

Some of the prettiest beaches in the world are located right on Little Exuma. It's very possible to spend all day on any of several gorgeous white sand beaches within a five minute drive of the Ferry and not see another person all day. Launch a kayak or start your bonefishing adventure at the edge of the lawn. Nightlife is as close as a 1/2 mile away, or the clubs in George Town are only a 10 mile drive. The new Tropical Breeze restaurant (Great reviews) and the famous Santanna's (legendary gathering place) are just a short drive to the East.
