I often stay at hiil-top Sky Cottage because l love the high ceilings with the breeze and sun flowing through and the view over the blooming garden to Elizabeth Harbour, where boats criss-cross the varying blues and greens of the Bahamian waters. Has all the mod-cons - fully equipped kichen, spacious bathroom, and bedroom and siiting/ dining area cooled by fans and air ionditioning when needed. Plus of course ample terrace to have tea while watching the ever-changing couds and sunset. Shops and restaurants of George Town, capital of the Exumas, just down the road, and beach at foot of the hill. Genial owner lives in nearby main house, ready with her advice.
Love to come back next year for longer relaxation and swim in the pristine waters near the cottage.
We fell in love with this place on the first day and did not want to leave. Well thought out , high quality furnishings, appointments and most accommodating. You will not have to bring anything.
What's best is the owner and how her treats his guests. Rosemary, she really goes above and beyond to make the place you stay feel like home. She like an old friend you have known for years but haven't caught up with for a while who just wants to make sure everything is right. The cottage is very close to town and we walked for our grocery's and to several beaches near and restaurants
Free wireless usage, spices and oil in the kitchen (along with full cooking gear), and a newly build place with that certainly a pleasure to cook and enjoy the wonderful views of Elizabeth harbor
We really feel like we lucked out with this place!
The accommodation was the perfect fit for a first time visitor. The owner, Rosemary, was very informative in advising us on where to go, what to do, and how to get there. The balcony has a breathtaking view of Elizabeth Harbour and Rosemary has manicured gardens surrounding the entire property. The price is very reasonable and has a great location with an easy walk to downtown. I highly recommend this unit to any type of traveler and I will definitely be back.
I'm not even sure where to start with this review. I emailed back and forth with Rosemary, the owner, several times before I arrived. She instantly warmed my heart and I knew this would be an amazing solo experience. Besides the amazing person she is and the wonderful talks we had over the 3.5 weeks I stayed here, the house is just perfect. It had everything I needed and more. Be sure to get an idea of what she has before you pack because it can save you some room. The unit was spotless, decorated beautifully, and in the PERFECT location. I had reservations about staying too close to Georgetown as I wanted to be a bit isolated but now I regret ever thinking that. You don't need a car if you stay at this apartment. You can walk to the Fish Fry, the local hotels bar/restaurants, Georgetown, water taxi, etc very easily. I would, however, recommend renting a car for at least a day or two to see all the sights and beaches. It has a full kitchen with all the pots, pans, spices, etc that you need. It's like moving into someone's house. My favorite spot is of course, the porch. I spent many hours on that porch and on Rosemary's porch overlooking Elizabeth Harbour. It never gets old and she'll make you appreciate all of the reasons to sit on that porch. There is a beach right across the street from the house that is a perfect launching point for a kayak (from Out Island Explorers). It also has a great snorkeling reef just 100 yards off the sand. I can't say enough about my stay or my experience in Exuma. I left my heart there and I can't wait to get back very soon.
