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!

Perfect weather, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! Perfect little cottage for a couple. It has everything you need to cook your own meals and unpack your suitcases. Peter the owner is helpful and generous (the conch and lobster salads were delightful)! The cottage is conveniently located between the airport and Georgetown. We had a rental car for the 2 weeks we were here and it made everything easier.

Hi Peter!!! We did make it home safe!! We miss you and the Bahamas already!!! I will make those rev

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay at Sunset Cottage for one week. We picked this place based on the positive reviews that we read and we are so glad we did. We had the best time ever! The location of the house is great! We loved waking up to the ocean at our feet and hearing the waves at night. There is enough of beach to have a great time. There is a kayak to go out on. Hoopers Bay is gorgeous! The sunsets are fabulous. The water is so clear and there are so many friendly turtles. The house is only a short drive into town (5-10 mins). As amazing as the house and location is, our favorite part of the trip was Peter!!! He helped us get pizza the first night because most places were closed due to the holiday. We booked a tour with him and he took us to all of the best spots! (swimming pigs, dive sites, iguana island, etc.). It was such an amazing tour and great time. We got to hang out with Peter a few times and he told us all about the island. If you visit get to know him because he's a great fun guy!

I have nothing negative to say about sunset cottage. We will definitely be coming back and staying here again!

Map

Car: necessary

Directions to house. Travel south from round about at airport which will be a right turn, you follow road pass a nice strip of beach

With nice homes along the way for about 5 miles or so. You will pass a tennis court on a curve and go up a hill where you see the ocean once on top of the hill about a half mile from this point you will pass The Bank of The Bahamas on your right will be 2 big blue buildings which is a plaza on the right. About a 1/2 mile from here on your right you will see the sign Sunset Cottages take that left and follow the signs. Peter's cell is 357-0390. If you see a Grocery Store, Smitty's that mean you pass the turn and then need to go back a few hundred feet then the turn will be on your right. Hope this is clear!
