Guestbook comments from the owner

I had an absolutely beautiful time at Villa Marjorie. It is Gods little treasure in Exuma. My favourite part was the swing in the tree and picking grapes in the garden each day.

The water was warm and inviting. I am sad to go but delighted by the idea of returning very soon.

By the way I wish I could pack the bed and pillows and take them home with me. I LOVE THIS PLACE.....

Villa Marjorie- Tar Bay

  • 4 of 5

This is a small 2 bedroom home RIGHT on the gorgeous beach of Tar Bay. The outside of this home needs a lot of work. Broken chairs and picnic table make this home look somewhat dumpy from the outside.

The inside is nice but not glamorous. Both bedrooms have king beds with sliding doors to the back porch. The living room also has sliding door to back porch. However, make sure you or someone with you has the strength to open any of them. They barley budge! You certainly get a work out in just by opening & closing any of the 3 sliders. Was a tad inconvenient but not enough to cause us any trouble. Also, the back porch furniture could be upgraded to something other than plastic chairs/tables. Now, that being said, this home DID have a decent kitchen with granite counters & stainless steel appliances as well as washer/dryer that worked great. 2 bathrooms done nicely with tile and master bath with jacuzzi tub. Central air was necessary and worked very well! This is a small home that needs some improvement but the location is pristine! The sunrise CANNOT be beat! The price of this rental is appropriate for what you get. This home was just right for our family of 4. We LOVED our stay and again, some minor improvements could add to this perfect location but we did just fine. We write of the improvements we "think" would add to this perfect location, but as stated, we LOVED our stay, we LOVED the beach just yards away from the back porch and we LOVED Exuma!

Fantastic stay on a fantastic island!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this place is. We loved our 10 days there and wished we could have stayed longer. Great house, literally right on the beach! Thank goodness for air condition! Sitting on the patio, just watching the colors of the water was mesmerizing. Drove all over the island for all kinds of activities. Highly recommend Cocoplum beach, a boat rental at Minn's in Georgetown, a visit to Chat'n'Chill, Mom's Bakery, the butcher right down the street (excellent steaks), 4 C's Adventures for a tour (including swimming pigs, Thunderball Grotto, Iguanas, private islands (who needs 11 cays???), sandbar etc.). We did a JetSki tour, but it was just OK. So yes, you need a car. Nice to have OK internet, so we could stay in touch with civilization. :) (If internet goes down, just reset the router in the smaller bedroom.) (Don't leave any food out in the kitchen, btw.) There are TV's, but we never turned them on. :) (We were only able to open the living room patio door, not the ones in the bedrooms, but no biggie.)

Hopefully we'll be back soon!

House was okay but service was not

  • 2 of 5

The house was just okay - beautiful location and nice furnishings but there were a few issues as well - all patio doors were really hard to open, there was a mouse and a few lizards in the kitchen, and we were hurried out of the house an hour early for guests arriving after us that were coming in early. Additionally, we have been in communication with the owner/property manager multiple times in an effort to try to get the security deposit back. It has been a month since checkout and the security deposit still has not been returned - despite multiple communications and excuses up to this point.

Owner's Response: Hello Jessica, We are sadden that you would write such a review. Villa Marjorie is very modern, highly maintained and exterminated regularly, and never had any guest experience mouse or lizards. We have asked our exterminator to do an extra stay after your review, and there is and has always been a note in the bloom closet to all guest, to take trash out nighty. Our patio doors are hurricane impact, which shuts tight with a suction because we are on the beach. The property manger is asked to show all guest the correct way in opening the doors, we will follow up to be sure to have that done during orientation. I am sure, that you are in receipt of your security deposit, and be reminded your contract did state the time in which it is returned and your request for it. Again thank you for staying at villa Marjorie.

Perfect spot to get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an absolute blast at Villa Marjorie. It's right in the middle of Exuma, and is a reasonable drive from everything. We highly recommend the Exuma Water Sports tour. The Lightbourn family is fantastic and they know all of the best spots.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marjorie was a great home away from home (January 14 - January 21, 2017). We were greater at the airport by Cleo who helped get us settled at the house. She even followed up a day or so later to see if there was anything we needed. Everything is as nice as it is represented in the listing. We had a wonderful vacation and really enjoyed relaxing on the porch looking out on the water and listening to the surf. Everyone we encountered on the island was great and the locals really put forth the effort to make you feel at home in Exuma. There are many beautiful beaches, great excursions, and fantastic restaurants. If you're looking for a laid back stay at a great beach house this is a great choice.
