Recent Little Exuma reviews

  • 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 low key getaway

    "This was the perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Swam or snorkeled most every day. Kayaked several times including out to Jolly Hall beach. Several visits to Stocking Island. Rented car for several days to get to Tropic of Cancer Beach, Santana's and ultimately back to airport. Several nights of rake and scrape music, appreciated that could find good food and music early as we are early to bed early to rise types. The day long excursion was well worth it. The owner, George was a pleasure to deal with. Unit was comfortable had everything we needed. Other than sleeping spent most of our time there drinking coffee on porch to watch the sunrise, or unwinding at the end of the day with a little Bahamian rum. Hideaways was very low key clean and friendly resort. There a three resorts in this little cove each with a restraunt and bar, so you can literally walk down the beach for dinner. We were also able to arrange for the water taxi to pick us up several times from the dock several hundred yards down the beach."

  • 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""
