“Beautiful place with some shortcomings”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Harbour view in April and were well received by its owners, Don and Gail. The house has 2 floors and they rent the top. The house has a good location and it's 15 minutes from George Town way to Little Exuma (definitely we recommend a car for getting around the island). Harbour View is also close to 2 of the best beaches in the exumas, Tropic of Cancer Beach and Pretty Molly Bay. The space they rent of the house consists of a spacious bedroom with a queen size bed and English style furniture, and has a window overlooking the sea and the cays, but does not have any kind of curtain, something really unexplainable, the sun makes you wake up at 6 AM. Also the room has a large and well decorated bathroom, air conditioning which makes noise and it's a bit annoying to sleep at night. There is a another room that can be a dining room with a kitchen in which we find a refrigerator, a microwave and electric oven, but no stove making it difficult to prepare several meals. Also in the room is a small TV and small dining table 90 x 45 cms. approx. with 3 chairs, there is another bathroom attached to this room. You can also find a bookcase with several books and the owners have prepared a folder with everything you can do on the island.
The house has a terrace which can be used by the guests with breathtaking open views of the sea and the cays, really spectacular. You can also use the kayak and reach Moriah Cay and Man o War Cay which are just meters from the house, we recommend the beaches and one can be truly alone (use sunscreen 30 or 50 because the sun is terrible there).
The negative aspects were: the lack of curtains in the bedroom, the lack of stove in the kitchen, lack of washing and drying machines, the lack of a telephone for local calls and air conditioning noise in the bedroom.
Don and Gail are kind people, they like to talk and try to advise the best possible, they should try to correct these points to enhance the stay of the guests.

Thank you for your review.
We have since had the air conditioner serviced and it is now whisper quiet. We have also decided as a result of your comment, to fit curtains at the window. Thank you for helping us in our efforts to ensure guests have a vacation filled with good memories.

“Awesome views and best deal on the Island!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This house was exactly what we were looking for. It was a great location, well furnished, very clean, and had an awesome view. It is probably one of the best deals on the Island. We paddled over to Moriah Cay for half the days and had a wonderful time kayaking, exploring, fishing, shelling and swimming. We spent the other half of our time exploring the Island. Our hosts, Don and Gail never intruded on us but were always there to answer any questions including calling local restaurants to assure they were open. We have stayed at another house on the Island a few years back but the lack of any on site support left us always wondering about things. Not so with the owners just downstairs - it was a huge plus! We will be back. We have been travelling to the Exumas for the last 25 years and this was one of the best trips we had and by far the most economical. We are already planning next years trip. I cannot say enough positive things about staying at this location. Truly an awesome experience.

“Feels like Paradies”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This was our first time in the Bahamas. We choose the Exumas for their great nature and their beautiful lonely beaches.
When we decide to plan the trip on our own, we start our search after a nice accommodation to stay. We decide to spend our vacation at *harbour view vacation rental*
It's an amazing place to stay, Don & Gail are gorgeous, they invite us in there home with a very warm welcome. They were always there to give us good advices or making a phone call or a reservation. We enjoy the little chats and the BBQ (thanks to Don) so much.
When you lay in bed or had a little break on gallery you had a wonderful view of the ocean and mariah harbour. Near to the house are wonderful beaches to relax and snorkel. Some of them are not easy to find, but Don & Gail write a manual to their guest. There you can find turn-by-turn directions. You can also find restaurants, maps and other good informations in it. Another feature is Don's Kayak, which is allowed to use to explore mariah harbour. There you can find amazing sand beaches where your footprint is the only one for the day. We enjoy this kayak trips a lot.
When you go there make sure you made a car rental. This is the easiest way to explore the whole island, get provisions or to go out for diner.

We spend a perfect vacation in the Exumas, we love to come back some day.
