  • 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."

  • A True GEM!

    ""This 'Ill Do" is the absolute BEST Bahamian location we have been to! We have rented homes on several islands, but this lovely, comfortable home is the ONLY one we would come back to again and again! PERFECT! The view and the beach are without a doubt SPECTACULAR!"

  • Smiles All Around

    "My husband and I just thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day vacation at Jericho House...we truly were grinning from ear to ear the whole time. The house is quaint and well outfitted with all you will need, even beach towels! We were joined by friends for 7 days and we still found the space of the house to be just great. The view and beach are just as you see in the photos...amazing. We rented a car for three days, poked around the island, explored a few beaches. The surf on the far side of Stocking Island was huge while we were there and we enjoyed playing in that for quite a while. Our time of just resting while at the house was just that...restful. Thanks Pierre and Sanet...we will be back!"

  • Spectacular Estate!

    "Don't pass up a vacation at this breathtaking property! As other guests have reviewed, the pictures of the property are great, but the experience of how wonderful it is cannot be captured with a camera. There is a main house, separate kitchen/dining villa, screened outdoor dining/lounging area and a second villa; all are beautifully decorated and accommodating to everything one may need. The water is crystal clear, no seaweed or seagrass. The beaches are soft, white sand and very private. We never saw any other people. There are TWO private cabanas nestled on rocky outlooks, perched at the ocean's edge. The natural vegetation between the main house and the ocean have multiple sand trails and offer a pleasant canopy of native foliage. We had plenty of areas to explore up and down this private beach. We even snorkeled and explored an area that is similar to a cove close to the property, seeing a lot of conch shells, starfish and other sea life. The owners employ some wonderful people that will take care of anything you may need or any questions you may have about the island. We had the most amazing vacation, thanks to the owners for making it so easy to orchestrate. They were very attentive and checked in with us frequently before arrival and after. We are very thankful that these fabulous property owners have shared their beautiful slice of paradise with the rest of us!"
