We just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Bella with our family, including 5 small children and 5 adults. This particular house, and the owners far exceeded our expectations from the elegance and comfort of the house and view, to ensuring we had an enjoyable stay. The picture of the house are nice, but they don't do the property the appropriate justice as the rooms are far bigger than they appear in the pictures. The architecture of the house is really impressive. There were multiple areas to sit many people, including a gorgeous living room, a comfortable television room, many outdoor spaces, the infinity pool, 2 cabanas and a hot tub. There is a dock and boat out one side of the house, and a pool and private beach out to the other.
The house was maintained by Martin and another gentleman who was available any hour of the day to assist. Both Martin and the owners were quick to resolve any issues we had, which were very few if any. The boat we had was a 20ft Whaler in great condition, though the alternator had an issue while we were using it. Martin quickly arranged a pickup and replacement boat for us, which was well beyond expectations, and the original boat was repaired and back within 24hrs. We are very experienced boaters and it was amazing what they pulled off.
As far as Exuma and the surrounding area, it is one of the most beautiful places we have been to, which has been many. I highly recommend the boat, because outside of the house, the big draw is the multiple secluded beaches, coral reefs and Stocking Island you can get to by boat. You can also take a ferry in Georgetown if you don't want the boat. There is not much in terms of shopping in restaurants on Exuma, but if you look closely, the markets are well stocked and the small shops and people are wonderful to meet. There are some restaurants that aren't obvious when you first look, but they are there and quite unique (Blu, Eddies' Edgewater, Santanna's, multiple small 'shacks' north of Georgetwon). You can also choose to spend the whole time at the house and on the water and be quite happy. We didn't go to any restaurants until 10 days into our trip.
Overall, a wonderful trip we will repeat yearly. Thank you Analia, Sandra, Carolina and Martin.
