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.
We had a perfect week in the cottage. Less than 100 mt from the sea. Up on the hill, just outside George town. All the conforts are included in the cottage. Rosemary is a perfect guest, full of info and very keen.
Thanks a lot!
We chose to spend our honeymoon at Halcyon & Exuma and we couldn't have picked a better place. The garden cottage is just perfect, plenty of space, light, clean and the views are amazing. We loved spending time relaxing on the outdoor porch, it's nicely sheltered and a great spot to watch the changing blues of the sea with views across to Stocking island. The gardens are beautiful, full of tropical flowers, colours and a great place to spot the tiny hummingbirds! There is a small beach just at the bottom of the hill which we had to ourselves each time we went. Rosemary was a wonderful host, she gave us a little tour of the island and helped us get our heavy shopping on our first day, very friendly and welcoming and we knew she would always be there to help us if we needed. We even had fresh baked cake which went down really well! Exuma is such a beautiful and friendly island, the sea is so clear and blue it barely seems real! We had some great local food during our stay, we would recommend a visit to the fish fry just a few minutes down the road. The house is just outside George town itself so very peaceful but was walking distance- although we seemed to be the only people walking anywhere- we kept getting offered lifts from passing traffic (as I said, very friendly people!). Make a visit to stocking island, we had a great afternoon there, chat n chill was fun. We enjoyed the wildlife, it was amazing seeing turtles swimming around! We also made a visit to the famous swimming pigs which was great trip and was great to see the cays.
Overall our trip was amazing, it was the perfect place to relax, the cottage had everything we could of needed, Rosemary is lovely and I would highly recommend a stay at Halcyon to anyone, we really hope that we can come back soon.
I can't say enough about the Garden Cottage at Halcyon. Rosemary is the best hostess you could ask for and the pride she has in her home, her island, and her guests radiate through her smiling face. The cottage is simply perfect for a couple. The location to Georgetown is ideal and just a five minute walk. The beach across the street is gorgeous at low tide and you'll be the only one there. She's already thought about everything you will need (beach towels, chairs, bug spray, etc). Worried about privacy? Don't be. You likely won't ever see her or the other guests, however, I WOULD recommend sipping on some tea and chatting with her. She has a lot to say and it will stick with you for a lifetime. Did I mention the view from the porch? Unreal.
I stayed in the sky cottage on my last trip and had just as wonderful an experience. I miss the Exumas and Rosemary already but know I will back in short time.
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.
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.
