In a nutshell, Valerie's Cottages are simple, clean, and well stocked. She provides towels, sheets, cooking utensils, and all the basic necessities. Even though there are several cottages on the property in close proximity, we always felt we had plenty of privacy. Valerie is a lovely host and we enjoyed talking with her and the other guests very much. Her... More

Just to be fair if you don't like dogs this is not the place for you ( there are 4 onsite) and if you need wifi it is sporadic ( the cottage is remote and service provider is yucky NOT Valerie's fault!). But neither of those things were important to us at all!!! IT IS A GREAT place to stay!... More

We had an amazing stay in Hartswell, fishing, kayaking, beaches, swimming with a wild dolphin, and more! Valerie was awesome to provide anything that could help make our stay better, from doing groceries prior to our arrival, to helping us find fishing guides or spots. We used her pool extensively, it was always clean and warm, and a great plus... More

Valerie's cottage definitely an excellent choice to stay while you're in Exuma. Valerie treated us as if we were family members. She is very down to earth, and made us feel like home. The cottage I stayed in have 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom. It was very clean and neat. A/C was working perfectly. Wi-Fi was fast. Valerie... More

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
