    Honestly, never been on a secluded Island before, nor the Bahamas, and didn't really know what to expect. From the beginning thou, I knew we were in good hands with very clear and organized instructions, guidance and planning from our host, Gage. We stayed there for a month, as a sabbatical of sorts, and at first were a little concerned about becoming stir crazy, but that couldn't have been further from our experience. This was was more than a vacation, it was an opportunity to spend QUALITY time as a family. Everything from reading, paddle boarding, kayaking, cooking, baking, visiting close in and remote Islands to discover all the riches and beauty of the Exumas (fish, reef, turtles, shells, sandbars, pigs, Iguana's, local coconut bread, etc). We travelled as three adults and two toddlers and had family members in and out on the weekends. The house is extremely cozy and the Island has several beaches that each provide their own unique and interesting qualities. We really got into the spirit of the Island by following the moon phases, tide schedules, and mindful consumption of electricity and water as an Islander would/should. With that said, we had every convenience (if we chose it use it) from nonstop water and electricity, A/C, Wi-Fi, VHF, Satellite Radio, blenders, grill, TV, huge collection of games and books, etc. Although our best memories are the peaceful quiet moments . . . Few recommendations from Gage that I'm thankful we followed. 1) We rented a boat, with zero boating experience, and within a few days we were Island hopping with ease. 2) We brought our dog, highly encouraged by Gage, and it really enriched our experience. To sum up our experience and to the homeowner and host's credit, we never actually felt like we were renting a home, but rather joining an extended family.
