“Dream Vacation, Perfect Location”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Wow, this Halcyon garden home was perfect in every way!! Super clean, great location, lovely decor & packed with extra amenities.

Location:
Absolutely perfect! Conveniently located close to the airport, Georgetown & the water taxi. Very close to Jolly Hall beach (one of the best). We loved this Central spot on the island perfect for traveling north one day & south the next to explore.

You have a perfect perch on a small hill for an astonishing ocean view from your patio and out the windows. So stunning!

The small beach at the bottom of the hill (easy walking distance with a somewhat steep hill) provided a stunning snorkeling spot. Look for the orange buoys. Those represent epic snorkeling.

You're very close to several restaurants including my favorite, Splash. The food there was really good (kinda reasonably priced considering) but it's the awesome vibe that makes this place so great. Swings at the bar, pool tables and a beach front location. 

Halcyon amenities abound...

In the kitchen: A blender, can opener, dishes for indoor and outdoor dining, sharp knives, mixing bowls, even some Tupperware we used for transporting our picnic lunch (cooler provided!)

Extras: Two sets of beach towels, lots of bath towels and wash cloths. Two folding chairs for the beach and an umbrella for use. There is also a large straw bag for transporting your beach gear. Perfect!

Lots of candles (for the occasional and short lived power outage that is part of Exuma island life) & even some special bug repelling lanterns for enjoying time on the deck.

An outdoor shower and a clothesline too for hanging your towels to dry.

Use of a full size washer and dryer with detergent provided. Yes!

A little library of books to read, two decks of playing cards, and cable tv provide late night entertainment.

Island tips:
The bugs are only bad at sunrise and sunset so either avoid the outdoors at those times or use bug spray (there's even some provided!). Otherwise you'll be fine.

If it's too windy head over to Stocking Island for gentler breezes.

Best beaches: Coco Plum, Tropic of Cancer, Jolly Hall and Powder Sand (Stocking Island).

Rosemary is a wonderful hostess but gave us total privacy until the last day when we knocked on her door to enjoy her wonderful company. So happy we did as she's a huge part of the charm at this ideal home away from home.

You'll be SO glad to book this home for your vacation. We found it to be absolutely perfect!!

Thank you for your complete review of Halcyon facilities. Owners can say a lot about their accommodations, but it takes a guest to verify high standards of cleanliness, convenience of location, and ease of living in the place. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and I'm really looking forward to a return visit. Just gotta get you back for that Rummy Kub win!
Rosemary.

“Lovely apartment with a lovely view”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This brand-new, spacious garden apartment is sparkling clean, well-equipped and tastefully furnished, with a large verandah overlooking beautiful Elizabeth Harbour. It is located at the top of a hill only minutes from town. We were welcomed by the friendly, outgoing host who helped us plan our days. We would be delighted to recommend Halcyon to our friends.
