We stayed at Exuma Vacation Cottages for 5 nights. Valerie went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. As we were flying in on Easter weekend, and no stores would be open, she asked us for a grocery list and shopped in advance for us. She located everything on our list, including fresh vegetables. Although...

Perfect location in the south of exuma island. The owner Valerie is extremely kind and helpful. She wrote us clear indications and it was very easy to reach her house.

Amazing. Plain and Simple. As others have said, I kinda want to keep this place a secret, but I told Valerie I would post a review. When we were first planning a trip, we were trying to decide between going on an all inclusive or doing something a little "off the beaten path". We travelled as 2 couples (friends from...

Another fantastic stay at Valerie's fantastic place! Really recommendable if you're not dependent on a servant and a menu. The freedom to do exactly what, where and when you want and the cabins offer all you need. A hint if you're a fan of rum cake: Mum's Bakery, Williams Town, is not far away, next to Santannas.

I’m not even sure where to start, Valerie’s cottages were wonderful!!! First off, cottage was clean, simple and had everything we needed. Beach towels, cooler, A/C, utensils, full size fridge, games and even a TV (6 basic channels) but gave us some entertainment at the end of the night when we were tired and winding down. Only plus would have...

In a nutshell, Valerie's Cottages are simple, clean, and well stocked. She provides towels, sheets, cooking utensils, and all the basic necessities. Even though there are several cottages on the property in close proximity, we always felt we had plenty of privacy. Valerie is a lovely host and we enjoyed talking with her and the other guests very much. Her...

Just to be fair if you don't like dogs this is not the place for you ( there are 4 onsite) and if you need wifi it is sporadic ( the cottage is remote and service provider is yucky NOT Valerie's fault!). But neither of those things were important to us at all!!! IT IS A GREAT place to stay!...

We had an amazing stay in Hartswell, fishing, kayaking, beaches, swimming with a wild dolphin, and more! Valerie was awesome to provide anything that could help make our stay better, from doing groceries prior to our arrival, to helping us find fishing guides or spots. We used her pool extensively, it was always clean and warm, and a great plus...
