My husband and I t spent 8 days in March on this gorgeous Island for our 31st anniversary. We met Peter at night at a local store on the main road to help us find the cottage. Peter showed us a few things in the cottage and said he would be back in the morning to finish as it was rainy and dark. Well 8 days went by with no sight of him. We did not need him but I guess it was a good thing. The beach was completely ruined due to Hurricane Joaquin no ones fault of course. Huge slabs of cement and limestone everywhere. A large sandbag thing was in the water surrounding the area in front of the cottage doing nothing but making it impossible to enter the water. Hoopers Bay is beautiful so we just walked across the neighbors lawn to get into the water or even walk the beach. The cottage was nice but at high tide the water would slap against the cement wall of the porch and actually shake the cottage. We meet some great younger people from the larger house Peter has up the road that share our beach well what was left of it. They sat with us as the beach area was very small and in 1 area. I have a trip planned this March yes again to Hoopers Bay but in another Villa with a large beach area and where I can enter the water. Peter was not an accommodating host to us(no idea why either?) and in 15 years of renting villas this was our worst experience between the beach and the host.
Das Haus ist direkt (!) am Wasser und man hat den Strand quasi für sich allein. Wir haben in der Woche, in der wir dort waren niemand sonst gesehen! Von der Terrasse aus kann man den Schildkröten beim vorbeischwimmen zuschauen, oder man schnorchelt gleich hin und beobachtet sie aus noch größerer Nähe.
Der Strand und die Gegend sind fantastisch, einfach tolles Insel-Feeling!
Peter und seine Frau sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.
Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
This is a continuation from the previous review as it was to long for 1.
There was maybe 10 people the entire week that walked by the cottage to see what was past it but being at the end it was quite private and secluded once we rectified the villa issue.
Checkout is 1 pm as per this site, but they are in there just after 11 am and starting to clean things for the next guests so be prepared to have everything packed and out of the way for 11. We weren’t getting picked up until 1 so just started packing around 10 and then had to rush around and pack everything so they could get in. If they need longer to clean the place, then checkout should be earlier.
The place was clean when we arrived and everything worked and we had no issues with the cottage.
There is AC in the living room and bedroom and it works very well. The cottage is the perfect size and the addition of the porch on the front is great.
The sunsets were beautiful every night we were there, don’t go to Catch a Fire as you will get the same sunset there so save your money on taxis and food.
Smitty’s is about a 15 min walk or just over a km one way away. We also found Prime Island Meats and Deli which is a bit further but we found the selection and pricing much better than Smitty’s.
Swimming with the turtles 2 min from the cottage was amazing and watching them swim out front while we are relaxing was also amazing.
Georgetown is only 5 km away so a good walk or short bike ride into town.
Definitely visit the Fish Fry as you are heading towards Gerogetown, it’s about 3.5 km away. Lots of different places to try the local cuisine.
More of a note than anything, but the bugs or little sand flies around are awful and will bite your ankles like no tomorrow so make sure you bring bug spray or you will be eaten alive. Not sure if it is like this all year round or just the time we were there (beginning of April) but something to keep in mind.
Overall we had a very relaxing time and enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Cottage and would recommend it.
We booked this place to get away from it all and have a no kids vacation and it is definitely in the middle of nowhere at the end of the bay. Overall a great place to relax and visit. Here is our pros and cons from our experience:
Cons from our experience:
Don was supposed to pick us up at the airport (Peter’s preferred taxi) but he was nowhere to be found so we had to get another taxi. Not the end of the world but time wasted and when the grocery store closes at 5:30 and you arrive at 3:30 time is not in our favour but it all worked out.
The outdoor pictures are not a good representation of the property. We found out there was a big storm in October 2015 and it ruined a lot of it. The big sand bag exploded and it still laying around on the beach and depending on the waves you need to watch your footing getting in so it doesn’t catch you. The grassy area in the picture to the left of house is no longer there and there are a bunch of sand bags on the right side to prevent erosion. The beach extended a great distance to the right but all you see is limestone now because of mother nature. The beach is MUCH smaller than the pictures show so that was a bit of a surprise. It definitely didn't ruin the trip but you should be aware of it.
Peter owns a villa at the top of the hill which can been seen from the cottage and the secluded private beach that you might expect is shared with the renters from there. On our trip it was a family of 7, 2 adults and 5 kids that were renting it. When you are woken up from your nap to kids screaming (they were just being kids and having fun, nothing out of the ordinary for kids) in the water, it wasn’t the secluded we had hoped for. The villa guests had setup all their chairs and stuff no more than 20 ft from the cottage. We did mention this to Peter and he let us know that no beach was private in the Bahamas and the beach was shared with the villa which the ad doesn’t state. He does own a beach on the other side of his brother’s place (which is right beside the cottage and much closer than the pictures portray) so he had some chairs and an umbrella set up for the villa guests down there and it was much better. Here’s hoping he keeps this in place and has the villa guests use that beach and you can have the area in front of the cottage.
Review continued because it wouldn't let me post it all in one.
We went to Exuma for our ten year anniversary and wanted to rent a house right on the beach. I don't think you can find a house any closer to the beach then this cottage. Hoppers bay is beautiful and watching the sea turtles every day was a joy. We got to swim with them one day. The house was just the right size for two. We appreciated having the washer and dryer and being able to use the kayaks.
Exuma is such a wonderful island and the beaches are the best we have seen. We rented a car and it was well worth having. We traveled up and down the island finding different beaches and eateries.
Things can be hard to find as road signs are minimal, but when we arrived we met Peter and he showed us the way to the cottage and then a quick tour of the house and property. He is very nice and easy to deal with. Wish we would have been able to do a boat tour with him, but timing didn't work out.
Such a nice trip and we hope to go back one day.
We spent a wonderful week at Sunset Cottage. The house is superbly equipped, spotlessly clean, and charming. Peter is a most gracious and accommodating host. Hooper's Bay beach, right out the door, is splendid for swimming, walking, or just chilling.
The cottage is aptly named, and I stood on the porch every evening and took photos of the lovely sunsets.
But perhaps our favorite aspect of the house was being able to fall asleep to the gentle, peaceful lapping of the waves.
We had a great time!
