  • Wonderful!

    "Our family trip to Green Turtle Cay was excellent, and the largest part of that was our rental of the Swanson House. The location is perfect, with the beach on one side and the dock on the other. Being close enough to town to walk to restaurants and shops was ideal too. Patricia, the caretaker, and her family were so helpful during our stay. One highlight was when Patricia's son took us on his boat to visit the pigs on No Name Cay and the sharks and stingrays on Manjack Island. The house itself is a delight, not fancy and a little quirky, but completely comfortable and very roomy. Snorkeling off the beach near the cut was pretty good, although we had a little more luck up at Coco Bay. Renting a golf cart and exploring the whole island was awesome. People in town were always friendly, and we enjoyed trying different restaurants every day. We have been to several islands in the Caribbean, and Green Turtle Cay is probably our favorite in terms of overall experience. Without a doubt, staying at the Swanson House was an excellent decision."

  • It don't get better than this (Song by the Barefoot Man)

    "Swept Away could not have been better, which is more than I can say for VRBO which lost my first attempt at writing an excellent review. From the outset, it was a real pleasure working with Barry. Not only did the rental go smoothly, but he also made recommendations for travel to Staniel Cay from Nassau and boat rental. We had originally thought to go to the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, but it is always fully booked, but, having now been to Staniel Cay, renting Swept Away was a far better option. We were two couples over 70, with 3 of the 4 having lived in Nassau for a minimum of 12 years each. So we knew the Bahamas well, and consider the Exumas to be one of the best, and arguably the best, vacation spots in the whole Bahamas. The private plane from Nassau provides some exquisite views of the colors of the Exumas. Swept Away was ideal for two couples. It is bright, comfortable, and has a magnificent 360 view as it is on one of the highest points of the island (about 60'). This also means it gets the breeze, which adds to the comfort and obviates the need for the a/c for a lot of the time. The golf cart is a big plus for getting around. If you're looking for great night life, this is not the place for you. The Yacht Club is lively, but there's nothing else. The food at the Yacht Club is very good, and, given the cost of getting anything to Staniel Cay, is quite reasonable. The Taste and Sea restaurant has good Bahamian food, but they soaked us on drink prices. Big Dogs usually has Pig Feet Souse, which you should try if you want a real Bahamian specialty. If you are able to provision up before going to Staniel Cay, you should do so. The 3 grocery stores have limited selections, and, if the mail boat doesn't come in, may run out of even staples. You can't go to Exumas without going out in a boat. Barry's caretaker, Berkie Rolle, runs a store and a marina and rents out boats. The water is maybe the most beautiful in the world and there are plenty of islands with beautiful beaches close by, so you don't need to be an expert boater, just learn how to "read" the depth of the water by looking at it. If you want a (mostly) self-catering, peaceful, relaxing, reasonably priced, idyllic vacation, you would have to look hard to beat Swept Away and Staniel Cay."

  • 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 !"

  • Great location, friendly owner!

    "Great little apartment right next to "downtown." The balcony/terrace offered spectacular sunset views and the apartment had everything we needed. You will not find a friendlier or more responsive host, thanks for everything George!"
