Halcyon gastenverblijf is centraal gelegen, op een heuvel met een spectaculair uitzicht van Elizabeth Harbour. Het is een halve mijl van Georgetown, hotels, restaurants, supermarkten, banken, winkels, stro markt, bootverhuur, watertaxi dock. Er is een strand aan de voet van de heuvel, een minuut afstand, en anderen in de buurt.
Hoewel het in de buurt van alles, het apparaat is volledig prive, in de vrijstaande gast vleugel van Halcyon, woning van de eigenaar. Het bestaat uit 1000 vierkante voet luchtige indoor / outdoor leefruimte, volledig uitgerust en ingericht. Het heeft een eigen parkeerplaats, ingang en een eigen 300 vierkante ft overdekte veranda, waar u kunt genieten van maaltijden, het uitzicht en de kleurrijke omliggende tuin.
Hoewel volledig voorzien van airconditioning, is de unit gekoeld door winden van de oceaan en kunnen gemakkelijk zonder gebruik van airconditioning zijn. Voorzien zijn van een queen-size bed, flatscreen kabel-tv, internet, handdoeken, badlakens, beddengoed, keukenlinnen, alle potten, pannen, borden, eten en kookgerei, barbecue, wasmachine en droger.
Nieuw gebouwd in 2015 met een open concept plattegrond en comfortabel tropische interieurs, is dit een perfecte, beschutte plek om terug te trekken na een drukke dag in de boot, op het strand, bezienswaardigheden en watersport. Kick terug met een koude Kalik, het lokale bier, of kook een barbecue diner en eten op de veranda. Laat de zachte bries uw geest te kalmeren in een prachtige omgeving. Uw eigen huis nog nooit zo goed gevoeld!
Er zijn stoelen in de tuin als alles wat je wilt doen is ontspannen in de schaduw met een boek. Er is een open bovendek als je wilt luieren in de zon. Zonder op enigerlei wijze opdringerig, uw gastvrouw is naast de deur en direct beschikbaar om te helpen, dingen uit te leggen of je vertellen de geschiedenis van de eilanden.
Our stay at the Halcyon guest cottage was absolutely wonderful. I wish I was able to give more stars because 5 isn't enough. We arrived to a stunning home, breathtaking view, and warm greeting from Rosemary.
The cottage was exactly as we expected from browsing the photos and reading the description. It was very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed for the whole trip, felt like home. She even left us some Kalik's, Bahamian beer, and Rum & Coke in the fridge. The cottage is in a great location and it's very close to the beach and to town. I would still recommend getting a rental car so that you can explore the island with ease.
The only thing better than the cottage was Rosemary, she is phenomenal and was 'over the top' accommodating. Rosemary took us on a great tour around the island, while telling us about all the hot spots and a bit of the history as well. We even went into the bush, things got a little bumpy, and she showed us many beautiful beaches. One of which was a secluded gem and it happen to be one of her favorites. After the extensive tour Rosemary invited us up for drinks and snacks on her porch where the conversation continued into the night. We parted ways with lots of information about the island, which included many activities to be done and plenty of spots to visit. We also left with some bread and honey from her very own bees!
Overall this was a fantastic trip and we'll definitely be back again. If you're reading this review, then don't waste another moment and book this cottage before it's gone. You won't regret anything about your stay at Halcyon in Exuma or having Rosemary as your host. Thank you so much Rosemary!
Halcyon Garden Apartment is awesome indeed. Rosemary, the owner, lives right next door and did everything she could to make our stay pleasant. Suggestions for beaches, restaurants, or activities? Questions about Great Exuma or Bahamian history? Needing to borrow an obscure kitchen tool? Rosemary helped!
Of course, there was very little that we needed to borrow from Rosemary, because the kitchen is well-stocked. The large windows, fans, and air conditioner kept us as cool as we wanted despite a few extremely hot and muggy days. We did laundry in the adjacent laundry room, and when it was time for a picnic we grabbed coolers, towels, beach chairs, a straw bag, and a vibrant beach umbrella from our own closet.
The unit, in my opinion, is ideally located. The view from the porch is indescribably lovely. We took in Stocking Island, Elizabeth Harbor, and Rosemary’s colorful garden in one glance. Butterflies and hummingbirds flitted or zipped past, and we saw gulls, terns, an osprey, and a pelican at a slightly greater distance. Watching a rainbow-edged squall advance on our porch was magical.
We walked (in order of increasing distance) down a short hill to a beach that has a small reef just offshore, to Georgetown for shopping (Sandpiper has lots of local art) and restaurants (Peace and Plenty has a reasonably-priced Thursday-night BBQ featuring local music), to the Georgetown Government Dock to take the water taxi to Stocking Island (including Chat ‘n Chill), to the Fish Fry (a collection of small restaurant/bar shacks), and to the calm and sparsely populated Jolly Hall Beach. In the spirit of full disclosure I must add that all but the pleasant walk down the hill are along the Queen’s Highway, the main island road that has no shoulder in some spots. Remember to walk on the right!
I would recommend renting a car so that you can visit, as we did, Little Exuma (including Tropic Breeze Restaurant and Tropic of Cancer Beach) and Rolleville (eating at Big D’s Conch Grill and swimming/wading at Coco Plum Beach). We also stopped at Bahamian Heritage sites such as the Rolle Town tombs and the statues of Pompey in Steventon. If there is no breeze, be sure to take some DEET for that sightseeing. We rented a little car from Berlie’s for $63.00 a day ($60.00 if you pay in cash) and it was fine. We went very, very slowly on the Tropic of Cancer and Coco Plum Beach access roads…they were rugged. Remember to drive on the left!
My daughter and I stayed at Halcyon in late April. Rosemary, our lovely hostess, has thought of everything and then some. Rosemary greeted us and personally drove us around and gave us a tour of Georgetown and the surrounding areas pointing out everything we might need. We were also given a phone to use during our visit full of minutes and phone numbers we might need.
The apartment is beautiful, full of light and breezes and stocked with everthing you could possibly need. The view of the turquoise waters from our expansive porch was just beautiful. The gardens and singing birds added to the peacefulness. Our trip was full of both serenity and adventure thanks to Rosemary's gentle attentiveness. Halcyon is perfection and I highly recommend this lovely home away from home! Thank you Rosemary, we look forward to another visit soon.
We traveled to Exuma to stay at Halcyon Garden for a belated honeymoon. Rosemary was immediately welcoming as well as her family members who live close by. We had a wonderful time exploring the area and there are so many intriguing places of interest to find. We also spent a day and went on a tour to see the swimming pigs, thunder ball gratto, swam with sharks and enjoyed local cuisine. Rosemary also gave us great tips and we were able to enjoy some amazing lobster poppers and fish tacos on our last day before leaving the island. We also rented a boat from Minn's Boat Rental which was a "must do" in our opinion. We were able to boat over to Stocking Island and spent some time snorkeling before getting sucked in and staying way too long at the "chat and chill." There is an abundance of sea life, the people are welcoming and warm and we would consider returning in the future. We would also suggest renting a car for a couple of days, as it is easier to explore and find out what you would like to see. Also, don't forget to try Rosemary's rum punch... can't visit Exuma without it. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Hopefully we will meet again someday soon.
We always stay at VRBOs and I have to say that the Garden Cottage at Halycon has been the best we have ever rented. It was immaculately clean, well stocked from the kitchen to the bathroom, and the view from the covered porch was worth a millionaire dollars. The cottage was as described and did not disappoint. Rosemary was a charm and provided us with snacks upon our arrival as the market was closed. She showed us around town, sat and exchanged stories with us and even let me meet her cat! The cottage is walking distance to Georgetown, but to get a full appreciation for the island a car is recommended. There are several fabulous beaches to see! We will be returning but not soon enough for me! Thanks Rosemary for sharing your slice of Heaven with us.
I researched weeks for the right place to stay and am so glad we chose Rosemary's Halcyon Garden Cottage, it was so much better than we imagined! The cottage was fully stocked with everything, from the kitchen, to the beach chairs, towels, bags and even a cooler! The cottage was very cozy, clean and comfortable surrounded by beautiful gardens and a lovely breeze from the ocean. The view from the covered porch of Elizabeth harbor and Stocking Island was breathtaking! We spent many hours there enjoying the ever-changing turquoise waters of the ocean - spectacular! There is a little beach just down the hill and Georgetown is about an eight minute walk.
Our hostess Rosemary was absolutely the best! We arrived right before the Easter long weekend and Rosemary, bless her heart, had all our groceries, wine and rum waiting for us! She also had put a few bottles of Kalik beer (a favorite in the Bahamas) in the fridge for us to try. She had even checked with the owner of the Chat'n Chill and Elvis Water Taxi to see if they were operating on Easter Sunday as we had planned to visit for their famous "pig roast" (which was delicious!) and to see the rays that come into the shore to be fed. A must do experience!! We also enjoyed an Exuma Cays Adventure with 4C's, to see the "swimming pigs", which is not to be missed.
We arrived four hours late due to weather and Rosemary had a bottle of her "special" rum punch made up for us to enjoy - it was just what the doctor ordered. Once we had settled in, she invited us up to her place where we enjoyed more rum punch and getting to know her. Rosemary was not only a gracious hostess, she was also the best tour guide, who took us to numerous places of interest and some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen! Rosemary - thank you for sharing your history and your breathtaking island with us. You truly made our first visit (but not our last) the best and most enjoyable vacation we have ever had! Rosemary introduced us to her two brothers, Godfrey and Michael and made us feel like we were part of her family! Rosemary, our dear new friend - we miss you, our conversations and good laughs, our fresh bread and honey and your beautiful island! Can't wait to come back - we are already planning our return. We highly recommend Rosemary Minn's and Halcyon Garden Cottage - you won't be disappointed!
Op een heuvel met een spectaculair uitzicht op de haven, Halcyon is een elegant landhuis op een eigen landgoed, maar op loopafstand van bijna alles. Het is buiten de belangrijkste snelweg en een korte wandeling naar de stad, de lokale eten hutten, en een minuut lopen naar het dichtstbijzijnde strand. Het is centraal gelegen op het eiland en gelijke afstand van de afgelegen stranden, steden en restaurants. Huurauto wordt voorgesteld voor persoonlijke sightseeing en geïsoleerd verkennen van de stranden, maar is niet noodzakelijk voor het dagelijkse leven als u wilt lopen.
