  • 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)"

  • Outstanding vacation!

    "My family of four stayed at the Belle Mer cottage the first week of August and we had an amazing week. It was more space than we needed but Belle Mer was just too perfect of a spot to pass up when we found it on VRBO. The pictures online are a good representation of how it actually looks. The beach at the house is awesome and Belle Mer is perfectly located....close to George Town, about 5 minutes from the airport, and a reasonable drive to some incredible beaches. I found The owner, Samantha to be really great to work with leading up to our vacation. She was very quick to respond to our questions and very accommodating."

  • 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."

    "Wonderful site with beach out front. Owner provides fully equipped, including kayaks. Get Bahamas sim card for phone internet on island, and house. No safe on site and, as of our visit, many windows wouldn't lock. Many sliding doors won't open. Owner very responsive and helpful getting us settled there. Recommend."
