We had a lovely time at the Tamarind Tree cottage. It was extremely clean and well-appointed. One could really want for nothing at this lovely spot. The greatest thing was the feeling of the cottage being very private but enclosed on a wonderful little property with many flowers, pool, and a view of the cove. It was a very relaxing place to come "home" to after our adventures. The hosts, Kim and Terry were quite nice and always available to answer questions about the island. The cottage far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.

A well maintained, pristine cottage on the turquoise cove of Gregory Town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our honeymoon at the Tamarind Tree Cottage and are already scheming about when our next visit will be! Kimy and Terry (and Morocco!) could not have been more welcoming! They are so helpful with helping you navigate the Island—from best beaches to tastiest dinners out. Your day can be spent poolside or adventuring to one of the many secluded beaches the island has to offer. Their property is meticulously maintained and the cottage was delightful. My husband and I enjoyed having breakfast—eggs, toast and coffee—on the porch every morning. The full kitchen in the cottage allows you to stay home for meals if that’s what you’d like.

We loved staying at Edge of the World Properties and know you will too! Thanks so much, Johnson family!

I stayed at the Tamarind and I had a really great time among the local Bahamian locals in the village and also with Kimy and Terry. My cottage was clean and airy! When I first arrived I was very hesitant to rent a car, driving on the "wrong" side of the road. I wasted two days not having wheels but I really have no regrets about it. It gave me the opportunity to walk around the village and get to know locals. Gregory Town is awesome, the people are honest and sincere. I am 54 yr old woman and for the first time in my life I hitchhiked! And, YES, it is a safe thing to do on the island.

I received the most special care by a local Bahamian, Ern and Kimy who saved my life - literally. While visiting I had an issue with my blood sugar. I was limp and just wanted to sleep. I was in touch over text with my Mom who asked if I wanted her to get in touch with Kimy to check on me later and I agreed. Kimy did not wait. She rushed right over and found me very lethargic and lost for words. I was so weak. Kimy rushed to get her phone and called the nurse down the road. She wanted me to go to the clinic. From that moment-on Kimy rallied every resource she had, including Ern. Ern is Kimy and Terry's friend but also a Bahamian man that is basically there for them and their visitors whenever needed - for anything! Ern came immediately after Kimy called for him and the rest is a story for a book. Ern stayed with me as we traveled to two clinics, the second having a doctor. The decision - I had to get off the island to an acute care hospital in Nassau. I used Ern's phone to call Kimy to ask if she would pack up my stuff and Ern would go and get it. She swiftly packed up a heavy suitcase with all my things so it was ready when Ern returned for everything. This man made two long round-trips from clinics to Kimy's cottages to ensure I got to where I needed to be for care. At the second clinic the nurse pricked my finger and my blood sugar went from 60 to 36! It was now a serious emergency. The nurse shouted out to Ern that we needed OJ, sweets, anything to help me recover the low blood sugar. The store WAS NOT next door by any means. But, Ern was back in lightening time with a bag full of all the right stuff to help reverse my acute condition. Longer story short I was medflighted off the island in tears. I wanted to stay and do some things I hadn't gotten in yet, i.e. snorkeling at gorgeous Gaulding Cay. I'm going back ASAP to see my friends!! Best vaca spot everrr!!

Wonderful cottage for couples

  • 5 of 5

The property sat on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay in Gregory town. Kimi and Terry were friendly and hilarious. They were available for anything you could possibly need on the island and therefore making the experience all the more enjoyable. We will definitely be back one day.

Would go back in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, this trip was paradise. The property is a small community that affords as much interaction or privacy as you prefer and the hosts, Kimy and Terry, have an amazing talent for making you feel at home and welcome right out of the gate. I woke up the first morning and thought I heard the roar of air conditioners but no, it was the roar of ocean hitting rock. This sound will stay with us until we return. One other note: photos are exact - not misleading at all as they are with some properties. Everything is kept sparkling clean. Thank you Kimy, Terry and Morocco for a memorable time. Thoughts of this place will keep us warm in the cold winter months to come!

The real Bahamas

My wife and I were incredibly lucky to find this property. It's clean, peaceful, relaxing and owed by two wonderful people.

Kimy and Terry are fantastic representatives of the Bahamas. There was truly no need for travel guides. They were able and willing to answer all our questions and guide use to beautiful and interesting locations.

True "Local Knowledge".

I have no doubt we will be back and bringing friends.
