“Fantastic holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010 for a stay in May 2010

"It was just what we wanted - the door opens right onto the beach, the sand was white, the water was warm and blue, snorkeling was great, as were beach walks to bays of the clearest water and the cleanest sand, and the boating was easy to numerous secluded beaches. Evenings on our patio in the warm air with the waves lapping and the warm breeze in the palms, a barbeque going and a cold blender drink. Or a stop by the pool side resaurant for an easy dinner, or perhaps a walk to the local fish fry.
The resort was clean and friendly and our room was large and well cared for. We had everything we needed right there with lots of comfortable space inside and everything we wanted right out the door. The owners gave us great tips on what to see and do - where to snorkel the reefs, or feed the stingrays or find giant starfish in the bluest water and walk on pure white sand beaches. We had a fridge full of cold drinks and good food and had many great evenings on our patio, and slept to the sound of the palms and the waves. The resort was quiet and not too big - we played with the kayaks and sailed the bay on one of the catamarans, and had a cool dip in the pool first and last thing of each day.
Georgetown itself is small and quaint and very friendly - everyone greets you on the street and there are shops and boat rentals all in a little town circle, as well as fresh fish to be bought right on the dock and grilled back at the condo - nothing so good as a thick filet of grouper sizzling with lime juice and coconut rum on the barbeque - eat while still in bathing suits and served with a mango blender drink - delicious!
A great place, and we would highly recommend it to all!

avevo letto altre recensioni in merito a questo cottage sul mare e non posso fare altro che sottolineare i commenti positivi degli altri turisti (peraltro tutti stranieri, questa pare sia la prima recensione in italiano). Siamo ad Exuma, un'isola delle Bahamas a 50 minuti di volo da Nassau (o con volo diretto da Miami a GeorgeTown). Vi scrivo dal patio fronte mare (sono a circa 10 metri dal bagnasciuga) e sono le ore 18 di un lunedì di agosto. Il sole è ancora alto ed abbiamo passato dieci giorni molto belli. Il cottage affittabile direttamente dalla proprietaria canadese o tramite Homeaway.com ha una camera doppia, due bagni con doccia, un'ampio living con cucina attrezzatissima di ogni elettrodomestico (.....ma manca purtroppo la lavastoviglie) in compenso sul retro c'è un enorme lavatrice-asciugatrice); dicevo che il living ha un divano letto per i figli; l'unico rumore che sento è lo sciabordìo costante (sembra di essere su una barca); per ogni evenienza c'è una signora che si occupa della gestione sul posto, sempre disponibile. la casetta fa parte di un gruppo di quattro a schiera all'interno di un resort del quale si possono usare i servizi quali canoa, piscina, sdraio, ristorante e bar, un servizio navetta ci porta a George Town in pochi minuti. Appena fuori il resort c'è un rent-a-car che con 70 usd affitta al giorno un suv honda. Appena arrivati dal volo la spiaggia fronte casa sembra meravigliosa......ma senza sminuirla troppo, a 10 minuti a piedi verso sinistra si arriva alla Jolly beach ...un vero paradiso. Lascio a voi la scoperta di altre spiagge sul quest'isola veramente bella..
Non aspettatevi però vita notturna, locali, qui non siamo ad Ibiza! alcuni ristorantini a 200 mt dal cottage, qualche uscita con la barca alle cays o a Stocking Island, e un' auto per visitare 80 km di spiagge tra cui la Tropico del Cancro!
