Recent Exuma reviews

  • location location location!

    "my husband and i just returned from a week at Seastar and cannot say enough about the house, the location, and the experience! the house is welcoming, expansive, and comfortable. Only about a 12 minute drive from the airport, yet when you get inside the house and out to the deck, you feel like a world away! Sunrises and the water view are simply spectacular and the design of the house is brilliant. we loved being able to walk 20 feet into the crystal clear water right off the deck whenever we desired. house has full A/C for your comfort which was lovely. kayaks were a joy to use right out the back, and it was great to have snorkeling equipment to take with us to various other locations. As mentioned, the house is close to airport (not close enough to hear any planes) and also a 2 minute drive from shops, banks, ferry to Stocking Island, and lots of other amenities. we felt safe, our privacy was undisturbed, and everything was just great. wish list ~ would love to have the sliders function better and have screens so we could enjoy more of the ocean breezes inside the house. thank you David, for sharing your beautiful home and property with us! well-equipped and highly recommended!"

  • Fantastic beachfront vacation home

    "I've wanted to go to Exuma for years, having heard rave reviews of its beaches, above all Tropic of Cancer Beach, so I was excited when I found the Pines in my research and saw the opportunity to actually live on the beach during my Exuma vacation with two other friends. The house is amazing. The balcony affords beautiful views of the beach and a cool spot to remain during the hottest part of the day, but one can sun oneself on the deck below on on the sunchairs by the steps that lead down on the beach. There are two ensuite bedrooms of comfortable size facing the beach with airconditioning and an airconditioner in the living room/dining/kitchen areas, which is open plan. The house is decorated nicely. All appliances worked efficiently and the kitchen is well stocked with kitchenware. There's a flatscreen television with Direct TV. Melanie was easy to contact, provided clear instructions and advice about how to get to the house and how to enjoy our stay, including tour and restuarant tips. She conducted business efficiently and professionally, promptly refunding our safety deposit and thoughtfully arranged a gift of sparkling wine for us in the refrigerator. I strongly recommend the Pines for a laid back vacation getaway. The property is not in the middle of the main town, George Town, so one has to drive 30 - 40 minutes there. Some may find this a deterrent, but if your main wish is to relax by the beach, outside of what little action one can find in "town", the Pines is perfect. If you want to drink and party in town, the curves of Exumas roads and the largely unlit sections outside of the main settlements may be unsettling for the first time visitor/driver at night--you may not want to drive back and forth in the evening. Luckily, Santana's and some other establishments are close in WilliamsTown (5 -10 minutes ). The only minor complaints one can have about tThe Pines come with the realities of vacationing in a rural, developing setting: the road leading to the house is VERY bad. drive slow and spare your tires. 2)as night falls, mosquitoes and sandflies (no seeums) emerge. keep the doors closed and keep Off handy. 3)the house is on well water, which can often stink because of sulfur content. 4) power may periodically go for short periods. This is common in Bahamas in the summer, and happened twice while we were there, but it came on quickly. I'd definitely return and recommend to others."

  • Great Place

    "Our recent stay in Exuma was our third in the last six years and Belle Mer Cottage was by far the best house on the nicest beach on the island we have stayed in during our time in Exuma, one of the most beautiful places on earth in our opinion. The house was more than big enough for 7 adults and the spacious kitchen/dining/living room was great for cooking,eating and hanging out.The owner was great and easy to work with and I sure we will return to Belle Mer Cottage again."

  • A Memory To Cherish

    "This beautiful guest cottage is the subject of many wholly complimentary reviews which, without exception, extol its many virtues, together with those of the astonishingly beautiful surroundings within which it is set and, of course too, of Johanna, its owner who, without qualification, it was a privilege to meet. Without reservation, our entire stay was a joy and perfect in every respect and it is easy to endorse fully all of the treats that await you should you visit, that have been detailed in other reviews. What I would like to emphasise personally is the immediate and sustained feeling of friendship and welcome that we experienced from Johanna from the first hugs of greeting as we parked in the drive to the sad time of our departure two weeks later. This was wholly genuine. We were not simply tenants. We were more than guests even. We were made to feel wholeheartedly welcome, that our being there was a true pleasure for Johanna herself and, as such, that we were very much part of the "family". These personal qualities seemed to spread out around us, extend into the fabric of the property and its unique setting, and they gave us a holiday experience full of memories to cherish. Will be be back? No contest. Yes please! Terry & Georgia Cook (Isle of Wight, England)"
