  • A relaxing and beautiful place

    "We stayed in the separate house which is comfortable and clean and has a relaxed vibe. It is not high end and modern and is not trying to be. It is more like a beach house or large family cabin. The screened in veranda kept bugs to a minimum which was nice at night. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. We have generally stayed at beach front houses in the past not far from grocery stores and shops. This is different as you have to get a water taxi or have access to a boat to go across the harbour to shop. Planning is needed. When we booked I was not sure about not being right on the beach. Once there you realize how unique this place is. The island is thin and you have access to both sides. On one side is the clear calm inner harbour (holes) with lovely snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Paddle to chat and chill! On the other side 2 min away is a wonderful long beach that only seemed to have our family on it most of the day. The small pools that formed between the stromatolites at the end of the day were perfect to relax in. We did not have very small kids but they would be perfect even for small kids to enjoy. As others have said sitting at the pavilions with the 360 views is wonderful. One thing to remember is that this is off the grid so conservation of water and energy is important. You need to be careful with water usage and remember to switch off lights. It provides a reminder of how much we all may be wasting back at our homes. Good learning opportunity for every one especially kids. Bob is a wonderful host. He made sure we had everything we needed and provided lots of information and facts about the island. He even gave me a boat lesson on the way over to pick up a rental boat. The cost is reasonable compared to many other places we have stayed in. Overall it was a great experience and vacation. Would go back."

  • Wow!

    "My husband and I just stayed at the amazing Yellow Bird house for 10 days. We walked in the house and all our cares and worries just melted away! Each bedroom is so beautiful with doors leading to the patio and comfortable beds! The bathrooms were perfect and the living area was spacious! I know people have complained about the kitchen, but to be honest, we thought it was lovely and fit the "beach house" feel. The house is decorated very sweet with cute artwork. The AC units are perfect and the house felt so good to come back to after a long day of adventure! Exuma is a magical island with views around every turn and the loveliest people you will meet! So many fun things to do, but the one nice constant was being able to return to the Yellow Bird house at the end of the day. Greg was lovely to work with as well and answered all my emails gave us great tips! We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Already planning our return!"

  • 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)"

  • Perfect trip !

    "Thank you to Denise & Phil for their incredible house in paradise. Since our first contact until our last day in their house, they were the perfect hosts. The house is just perfect. We enjoyed taking our breakfast outside every morning. The beach club at the resort was awesome. The pool was amazing. It was the low season so we had the pool for ourselves everyday. Thank you again Denise & Phil for great vacations !"
