Guestbook comments from the manager

"Our 5-day stay at Minns' Cottages was fantastic! The location allowed full use of all of George Town's resources on foot, yet, at the same time, we felt secluded and restful in the quaint cottages and their lush sub-tropical surroundings.

"Mr. Godfrey Minns from the start was gracious, accommodating, and quite helpful. His advice on places to go and what to see helped us have the experience we were hoping for and much, much more.

"Our itinerary:

- Day 1: Arrive mid-day, check out George Town, go to bed early.

- Day 2: Rent mopeds 1/2 day, see east end of island and Little Exuma.

- Day 3: Mopeds to west side of island (1/2 day), ferry to Stocking Island.

-Day 4: Rent boat at Minns' Water Sports, snorkeled all day.

- Day 5: Relax, snorkel with guide from Peace & Plenty

"Note: (1) we cooked our own meals 3 times. Allow at least same to sample all local food.

(2) We only rented scooters for 24 hours and felt satisfied."

Wonderful cottage in great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in one of the Ixora cottages and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The apartment has everything you need for cooking and just relaxing on the porch and reading a good book. Something I spent a lot of time doing.

There is a small beach just across the road from the cottages. It is wonderful and we were always there on our own.

Esther and Travis were wonderful to us when we arrived and throughout our stay. I couldn't have asked for more from them.

The location is great with a short walk into town where there are shops and restaurants with everything you need. The people of Exuma are absolutely wonderful and I'll be back again. Hopefully next time with more people to rent the adjoining cottage.

I felt so safe and loved my vacation in Exuma.

I'd recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. Only thing I can say negative is the kitchen sink water pressure isn't great but if you use the handheld sprayer instead of the tap it works just fine! My boyfriend didn't like the bed. I had no issues but I think he likes a firmer mattress.

Thanks Esther for all your help!

Clean and Comfy in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Minn's Cottages are a perfect location on Great Exuma. We stayed in the Ixora east cottage, which was very clean, roomy, and had all of the required amenities, and then some. The cottage is sufficiently private, and has a large screened in patio facing Elizabeth Harbor which provides for spectacular views all day long. So clean, fresh and comfortable, felt like home. Georgetown is a hop-and-a-skip to numerous restaurants, bars and markets where one can pick up all kinds of provisions required for a comfortable stay. The property manager, Esther, with whom we were in frequent contact, from our early planning stages to our departure, was top notch in taking care of us. She was always readily available and truly a pleasure to chat with. The cottages are also a short and pleasant walking distance to beautiful beaches and Fish Fry eateries. We can't say enough about the locals. Always friendly, smiling, and chockful of interesting stories. Renting a runabout boat from Minn's Water Sports is very, very highly recommended. There’s no better way to explore some of the most beautiful secluded beaches in Elizabeth Harbor, experiencing the blinding emerald blue waters, snorkeling thru numerous coral reefs and hanging out at Chatχll’s on Stocking Island. We highly recommend Minns cottages, and want to thank you, Esther, for enhancing our stay and ensuring our comfort. We will be back, but this time with family members & friends in tow...

blissful paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at this perfect couples hideaway. first time on the Island and cant wait to come Back. we've been to many Islands, thou none as friendly as this. the cottage is perfect for a couple. the main living area is open concept with high ceilings. Nice size bathroom and the bed was super comfy. lots of towels and sheets. my favorite was the screen porch. different comfortable chairs to sit and watch the waves roll right in front of you. did i mention the color of the water?? outstanding!!Thank you Esther and Travis who were so helpful and friendly. even before arriving Esther filled me in on restaurants, beaches and tours to keep us busy. we always felt safe and enjoyed going to the fishfry, driving to Little Exuma where we went to Tropic of Cancer beach, ate at Santana's and Mom's bakery. Had a drink at Wayside liquors. cant beat the price of this home. we carefully compared prices and locations. Thank you again for the trip of a lifetime!

Tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time on the Island. The house is just perfect for two. So nice having your own space compared to a hotel. Very comfortable and a general good feeling. The screen porch was used every night. Very close to the market, fish fry and anything else you may need. It was nice to BBQ at home a couple of times. when they say you may only see two other people on the beach, they actually meant it. Thank you to Esther and Travis. They we're amazing from start to finish. Emails before we arrived. What to expect, places to check out. Courteous friendly people. Tropic of Cancer Beach and Santana's beach restaurant is a must. The30-40 drive is well worth it. I would recommend renting a car. Thank you again!! XO

Perfect cottage near the beach and town

  • 3 of 5

The cottage (Plumbago) looks exactly as the pictures.

Clean and with great service from Ester Butler or Travis if you have any questions. Also great to have your own house so can cook if you want to.

Was there with my 7 year old so brilliant that there's a small beach just opposite the road.

Takes less than 10 minutes to walk to town or to the Fish Fry shacks.

I can certainly recommend Exuma! Great to go to Stocking Islands and feed the stingrays or go on a boattrip and see e.g. the turtles, iguanes and swimming pigs. Ofcourse if you go without children there's beautiful scuba diving.

Bahamas dream vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our 7 year anniversary in the Bahamas (Exuma).at the Minn's Cottages. What a beautiful place!! The cottage was very clean and had a full kitchen, which we really appreciate. We had a screened in porch on our unit which had a spectacular view of the Exuma costline. At night we would walk out by the water, beautiful!!! Exuma has a great little village with lots of shops. My wife really enjoyed browsing . You can rent a boat if you like and there were qaint restaurants scattered around town. One main grocery store where you can find what you need. The Minn's family are wonderful people, very cordial and accomidating. We had a great time and highly recommend the Minn's Cottages. We will be back!!
