Kind owners & fun frequent visitors are a great perk to the beautiful cottages tucked away. Rooms are comfy & clean...bar & grill is a good, low-key time. Got to our other destinations with ease. Close to town & the fish fry. Wonderful time!

It's an overdue review as we stayed in spring of 2016, but I feel I owe it to nice people who work at the Hideaways at Palm Bay, who gave us a very hospitable stay. We picked a ocean front cottage (they have some on the hill side cheaper but we wanted to stay on the water). The beach is...

We were so happy with the accommodations. The breakfast is delicious and the staff is so friendly. The only downside is the shuttle to town. Doesn't run often enough so be prepared to take other means home or keep yourself busy in a very little little town. Walking distance to many of the fun night spots and eateries .

These little apartments are adorable! We rented 2 -2 bedroom oceanfront Villas. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Prior to arrival We had many questions and they were very responsive and helped us coordinate are time on the island. Right down to a taxi pick up from the airport. This is more of a time share so it does...

Just got back from a week in Exuma with my grandkids. We stayed in a hillside villa that was perfect for our needs and a very good value. The unit was immaculate, the beds were comfortable and the appliances worked well. There are a lot of stairs but that gave us a nice view of the sea and it took...

My family and I stayed here during February vacation and once we got there we felt right at home. Everyone who you meet is super nice and consistently ask you how you are and if you need anything! They cleaned our villa and remade the beds almost everyday, which was very nice to come back to after exploring the islands...

I stayed in a gardenview cottage which was just perfect. Large, spacious, comfortable and the sea in sight. It was my first time at Hideaways, but I felt like I was with family. You couldn't get a more relaxed vibe and Ron and his team are incredibly accommodating and welcoming. No need to take anything but shorts and a t-shirt....

We got here on Feb. 12 2017. Unfortunately we arrived after dark because we took a wrong turn and got lost. Driving on the other side of the road doesn't help either. Regardless we got checked in and felt right at home. The next morning we awoken to a picturesque aqua water with white sand beach right in front of...

We stayed at the Hideaways under an inexpensive exchange through our timeshare provider. Through our research, we had appropriately minimized our expectations prior to arrival. This place is NOT Sandals, but is actually a decent middle of the road property. Our exchange put us in a unit on the hillside away from the beach, but the accommodations were fine. Nothing...

“Ocean front cottages and villas are right on the water. Hillside are across the road up in the hill, nice view, but a walk to the water.”
