Beautiful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing, we enjoyed our own private beach and the water was beautiful! There were paddle boards, kayaks and bikes available for our use. Peter took us on a fantastic island tour of the Exumas, it was the best tour I have ever done! Peter and Rita were great hosts and we would be happy to return.

Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem! The pictures do not do it justice. It is literally oceanfront! The cottage is quaint and has a subtle charm. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was our dream vacation. Watching the sunrise every morning was breathtaking and we kayaked every night at sunset. You have pretty much your own private beach. When the tide is low the beach gets a lot bigger. The sand is a powder white and the water is warm and bright blue. We saw turtles every day. There were also beach dogs that would come say hello, they were pretty friendly.

Peter was very nice and very informative. He told us the places to go for fun and good food. He was extremely responsive and helpful. The internet was down because of a storm but he got it fixed rather quickly. He also called and checked on us also which was very hospitable. We cooked breakfast every day and went out for lunch and dinner. We also barbecued and everything we need was already there. It was like a home away from home. There are a lot of fun place to eat nearby. You must go to Shirley’s at the fish fry!

There were only a couple of things we did not like. There are people that may come and try to access the private beach to see the turtles. We didn’t mind that. But we were a little bother by a crew that came to do a swimsuit photoshoot. They were there for quite a while and were getting nude. We just left and by the time we came back they were gone. Also, some of the furniture could be upgraded, particularly the couch. Nevertheless, we had an amazing time!

We will be back one day!

Wonderful Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom cottage was a home in paradise! Peter is a wonderful man and made sure my vacation and stay was great. Being able to walk out to the Ocean and see turtles a lot was amazing. The sunsets were breath taking. I definitely will be back to stay at this property and will be telling all my friends and family about it. Thanks again Peter!

Absolutely breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

No matter how good of a review I write it will not give this place justice. As the locals Told us, you are on the best beach on the island, with an amazing view! At high tide the water is crashing into the porch, that is how close you will be to the water. We were provided with paddle boards, snorkeling gear, and a single and double kayak. The best part of this beach was how close the turtles swim up! You will be seeing a lot of turtles in the water during your stay. I think the most important thing to add is this place did not seem unsafe in the least! The owner and his family own all the surrounding property and there are no cars that drive up and down the drive.

The island does not feel "touristy" at all. All the locals were extremely friendly and helpful. It had a very laid back vide.

Now let's talk about the owner of the property! Peter surpassed all expectations. Peter will ensure you have the time of your life on this trip! He took interest in getting to know us, and the things we liked to do so he could recommend things on the island to check out. He pointed us in the direction of many great times! He took us on two tours that were by far the best tours we have been on.

All in all, we travel a lot and this was by far our best/favorite vacation yet! We will definitely be returning!

You'll need to pinch yourself daily

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Sunset Cottage for a week and I literally had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Located on Hooper's Bay, the water is so blue and so clear. The cottage is perfect for a couple. Had everything you needed for cooking meals, just had to run down the road to Smitty's to get food! There were towels available as well as a washer and dryer. Also provided was a kayak which was amazing to go out into the bay with. Sea turtles swim by all day, everyday and are so fun to watch! Peter was always available when we had questions, and was there to greet us on our first day. He helped us find somewhere to eat since we had arrived on a Sunday. We felt incredibly safe and comfortable the whole time we were there. Thank you Peter for sharing this beautiful cottage with us and we look forward to coming back again!
