Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the stay in Exuma. We have been travelling around all oceansbut this island has really a particular geographic position - only 300 miles from USA but you feel like in a castaway island. Thanks for hospitality, we hope one day to come back and see you again.



In French for Bill: Un endroit et des geus merveilleux. Super.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our relaxing vacation at Bill & Judy's. They were very hospitable! The apartment was impeccable! Very clean and organized! We were met at the airport and escorted to our home for the week. The location of the apartment couldn't have been better! Just minutes from the airport and just a short drive to town and local restaurants. Muffin & Lady were great too!

What an amazing place to visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to the Dilly Crab Ranch in August with our 3 children. (25, 22 ,18) We loved Exuma and Dilly Crab. We have been to Abaco and Paradise Island and wanted to see a new island this time. The water is beautiful here. The house is clean and so well equipped. We loved the pool and the area all around it. The beach is so close and so beautiful. The water is clear and calm and the sand is lovely. There was no one on the beach the whole time we were there. It is like you are on a private island. We did the boat tour with 4 C's and it was amazing. Andrew the captain was so informative and so fun. We saw so many of the other Cays. The water is just so beautiful out there. It was really helpful to have Judy next door. She gave us great recommendations for dinner and tours. We went to Santanas one day and that was fun too. The lobsters were fresh and huge. The game room is a great feature at this house and she has a lot of work out equipment. There are about 100 DVD's to choose from also. There were some board games too. There are beach chairs and some pool toys. The one thing we needed were rafts for the pool. There are blow dryers in both bathrooms and lots of towels. The people on the island are so friendly and helpful. We also went to the straw market one day and the fish fry. It is a beautiful island to visit with stuff to do and plenty of restaurants to eat at . I would highly recommend Judy's place because it is on a great stretch of beach and the pool is fabulous. :) Hope to get back here someday. !!! Thanks for all of your help.

Sincerely,

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. It gives us a lot of pleasure to know that our guests have enjoyed the island as much as we do. We apologize for the lack of pool rafts during your stay. We usually have some but they get damaged so easily and we have to ship them in from the States which takes time but we have them now. We hope you come again soon. Bill and Judy

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The Dilly Crab Ranch was the perfect place for our first ever island Christmas. My husband and I were finally able to pull off an island holiday with our two boys and a girlfriend (ages 24, 25, 27). We all had a blast. The house is perfectly centrally located... five minutes from the airport which came in handy b/c one son came in the day after us so picking him up was a cinch. 3-mile beach is a simple 1 minute walk away and it is absolutely stunning with the most gorgeous turquoise water I've ever seen and we've been all over the place! I didn't think the house or Judy and Bill could be any more charming but then we met Lady and Muffin...their two dogs. What an added bonus for any animal lover.

We were arriving on Boxing Day which meant that most everything would be closed so Judy made arrangements to make a trip to the store to have drinks and snacks at the house when we arrived. She is incredibly accommodating and has thought of everything for an incredible stay at the "crab". She even made a trip to the liquor store! We spent many nights playing pool, wii and ping pong with our boys. One son is a personal trainer so he was excited to see all of the workout gear she had.

As adorable as the house is, we did manage to leave it and take a few excursions. Mom's Bakery and lunch at Santannas on Little Exuma are definite must do's. If momma is taking bread out of the oven buy it right then b/c it will not be there after lunch! Take a water taxi over to Stocking Island for lunch at the Chat and Chill. We also planned swimming with the pigs with Exuma Water Sports...awesome!

All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "crab" and would very much like to return. Judy and Bill seem like family to us (sorry Judy you're stuck with us!) even after only one stay. Super sweet, charming folks.

Thank you Judy and Bill for making our Christmas 2012 so incredibly awesome!

We will definitely be back.

Warm regards,

Joy & David Haycox & Family
