Seven days was actually a bit short. Why? If you like to be on your own, kayaking to nearby islands like Mariah Cay and just enjoy the majestic beaches, and exploring Little Exuma, Williams Town - just do it! At Valerie's cottages you have what you need, a very hospitable owner, and wonderful dogs. It is not extravagant - and... More

For our family of four this was perfect! The cottage was very comfortable, nice kitchen where we cooked our meals, nice living room where we relaxed in the evenings. Good access to fishing and swimming. Valerie is a very hospitable host.... I echo all the excellent reviews here!

We went back to Valerie's cottage again this year... this time for 10 days! Last year, 7 days at the cottage was a little short since there is so much to do! We discovered new spots on Moriah Harbor where we could fish and we were again amazed by the wildlife in the harbor. As always, Valerie made us feel... More

A big part of why we ended up loving Exuma is because of Valerie's hospitality and her wonderful property. You instantly feel at ease around her and it was always a joy to talk to her about her life experiences. And her potcake puppies Bridge-it and Casper will keep you company as well! Valerie's property consists of 3 rental cottages,... More

My wife and I just returned from staying for 8 nights in one of these cottages. We had an absolutely increadable time, fishing, kayaking and going to the beach on Moriah Cay. Valerie provides exceptional hospitality and excellent service. She has lived on the island for many years and is a very good source for information ranging from fishing to... More

We rented one cottage while our friends and 2 boys were in another. I echo all of the positive comments from the other reviewers! Valerie helped us out with so many things, I won't list them all to prevent her from being overloaded!!! The pool is a fabulous way to wind down after a busy day, the 2 person ocean... More

We have just returned from a week at Exuma Vacation Cottages with Valerie and it was amazing! We had fabulous weather, a wonderful host and lots of discoveries. The cottage is rustic, very clean and has all the basics one would need for an amazing week at the cottage by the ocean. The pool is refreshing after a long day... More

We rented a two-bedroom cottage for ~$130/night, with air conditioning and its own kitchen. The cottages come with access to kayaks and a pool in back as well as access to the ocean a 3-minute walk down the hill. Valerie, the owner, is a wonderful lady who made us feel welcome and offered to pick up groceries for us before... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. This self-catering cottage in a quiet location was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation. We really needed some downtime and like to spend time on the water so this fit the bill perfectly. The property is as advertised and reviewed by others so there were no surprises. The owner, Valerie (who... More

I guess there's not a whole lot I can say about Valerie's place that hasn't been said already. We had a wonderful stay and everything was just as advertised (and as we'd hoped). The location is quite a ways from George Town (the center of "action" on Great Exuma) but I'd hardly recommend using that as a consideration. Basically, on... More
