Recent Staniel Cay reviews

  • We loved every day we spent there.

    "My husband and I had a blast in Ida and Terrance cottage. It was our first time on Bahamas and we wanted to get as local as possible. From the first minute of our arrival we realized that it was a right choice: 15 minutes boat ride to the cottage from Staniel Island, turquoise water, warm greeting by our hosts made us happy end excited. The cottage is smartly decorated with conditioner and ceiling fan. Very comfortable bathroom with a spacious shower stall, fully equipped kitchen and complimentary water. Upon arrival we have to do food shopping: convenience store was 20 minutes walk and a short distance to the dock across the bay. First time in our lives we used kayak to "go" to the grocery store. This chore turned out to be a fun kayak trip to the local food store and a bar where we found everything we needed: beer, rum, gin, tonic, and wine. We are not picky so eggs, milk, serial, canned food, and freshly baked coconut bread were sufficient for our breakfasts and lunches. Several nights we enjoyed delicious suppers in the local restaurants. And a couple of nights we cooked the fish that my husband caught in the ocean right from the beach 200 feet away from the cottage. Hiking, swimming, kayaking occupied us all week long and if we could we would stay there forever. Ida and Terrance checked on us almost daily and were very responsive to our needs. My husband brought all fishing gears but forgot fishing poll at home. Ida and Terrance brought us several polls the same night that made my husband very happy. We highly recommend this cottage to all people who prefer to stay off beaten tourists tracks and go with the flow. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Ida and Terrance."

  • Home away from home

    "In addition to being a lovely house, it is perfectly appointed with all the comforts of home. The rooms were all spacious with cozy beds and a/c units to keep us cool. The living area was spacious and the kitchen had every imaginable gadget and pan for cooking. The porches were screened and breezy too. The location is close to the few destinations you will want to access: the market, the airport and the yacht club. They are walking distance (15 min to yacht club) but a golf cart is highly recommended (4-5 min on cart.). Rum Punch was wonderful!"

  • Great location for an Exumas adventure

    "We had a great time in the Exumas and the duplex was a great place to stay for us. We rented both sides of the duplex and were very comfortable staying there. The amenities are as advertised and the beauty of the Exumas is amazing. The property itself is a bit weathered, but overall clean. Most of our time was spent on or at the water. Henry was great to work with and helped set up the private plane from Nassau to Black Point and back. He also met us at the Nassau airport the first day and gave us a tour of Nassau and took us shopping for groceries (highly recommended to do in Nassau) - above and beyond any other property owner I've worked with in the past. Every night Santos would stop by the house to check in and see if anything was needed. We rented a small boat to explore the Cays and went out almost everyday exploring. Black Point is a great launching place to do this, as the moorings and public dock are accessible and everyone in Black Point is super friendly and helpful with anything you need. Black Point itself is laid back and simple with Lorraine's, Deshemond's, and Scorpio's as the main places to grab lunch or dinner and a few grocery stores (with limited stock) should you run out of something. We found ourselves up at Stainel Cay Yacht Club for a couple meals as well during our stay, but the easy going style of Black Point suited us great for a place to be based out of and we are already discussing going back next year. As the Bahamian immigration officer said when we told him we were going to the Exumas - "OK, I'll see you again next year""

  • Tough to get to but worth the trip

    "The Exumas are a hidden gem for those who have never been. If you seek nightlife, this is not your spot but those who love the outdoors, boating and sandy beaches, this is a place for you. The Island has everything you need. Kayaks, paddle boards, snorkelling right off of the house. Gage was a great host and guide. He will help you set up anything you need. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and the like. Clearly, entertaining in the home is the norm. The only negative I would say is that the Wifi is spotty but I understand this is something they are working on. We went in July and it was HOT!"
