|Minimum verblijf||5 nachten|
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.
Wow, this Halcyon garden home was perfect in every way!! Super clean, great location, lovely decor & packed with extra amenities.
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.
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 one day, take the water taxi to nearby 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!!
Where do I begin? I am convinced we picked the best place for 1-2 people to stay in Exuma. It was impeccably clean, very comfortable, and the view is breathtaking. As other reviewers have said, Rosemary is THE best. She is so kind and welcoming. She will give you a short tour of the island and recommend places. One thing we look for on warm weather vacations is a covered porch with comfortable furniture. With a great view, we want to spend time outside looking at it. So we look for furniture we can sink into rather than a hard chair. Rosemary's furniture fit the bill. Furthermore, the couch inside was comfortable and the bed was comfortable--no achy back like I sometimes get on vacation. The kitchen was well-equipped. Rosemary had cold beverages and ice cubes made, which were refreshing after a long day of travel. The view and Rosemary's amazing gardens were even better in person. The beach that is within walking distance is very nice, and we were the only ones using it when we were there. We rented a car for three days, so we could get groceries and explore other beaches. There are many things you can do without a car. Boat tours and car rentals will pick up and drop off at the cottage making it very convenient. We walked to the fish fry and if you're willing to walk a little further, there are some resorts with decent food, too. We also walked into town and took the water taxi to Stocking Island where we had the pig roast at Chat n' Chill. Overall, it was one of our most relaxing vacations ever! Thank you Rosemary for your wonderful hospitality and for the careful thought you put into your amazing cottage!
A very comfortable and homey apartment with a great view of the harbour, beautiful garden and easy location to get to George Town. Lots of space for a couple with a well equipped kitchen (Le Creuset bakeware!!!). Very clean. Laundry facilities available, great for longer stays. You can walk across the road to a small beach and swim in that incredible turquoise water, then rinse off under an outdoor shower found outside your door - so convenient. There is air conditioning, but it was so nice to just keep the windows open and let the breeze flow through.
Lots of restaurants across the island to chose from, just ask Rosemary and she can provide you with the best local fare (make sure you check out Chef Ty at Blu in George Town!). Groceries at Exuma Markets, wine and beer at Marshall's are a walkable distance. There is yoga at Lumina Point across the harbour on Stocking Island Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Dive Exuma is the outfitter for SCUBA divers, but the snorkelling is very good for non-divers. You can rent a small runabout boat from Minns Watersports.
I would recommend this to a couple looking for a nice quiet getaway to a small island, and are adventurous to explore the gems of the island on their own.
A beautiful single bedroom apartment. New, very clean, well equipped and conveniently located just minutes from town. The view is gorgeous and the space was very roomy and quiet. Lovely large balcony overlooking the garden and Elizabeth Harbor...perfect place to have breakfast and coffee in the morning. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Absolutely beautiful! We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed it all. The gardens are wonderful and the view is breathtaking! If you are a clean freak don't worry. Spotless! We had everything there that we could possibly want or need. The kitchen was fully stocked, as we do like to cook and it was easy to do with everything there. Rosemary is a wonderful host and such a joy. We enjoyed our conversations with her so much. She is a native so she is very knowledgeable about the island, so listen to her. She is not imposing, but is there for good talks or just to attend to your needs. We went snorkeling at the beach, and it was amazing!! I felt like a child discovering things for the first time. As you can tell our time in Exuma was beyond words. If you are considering Halcyon for your stay here look no further. You have found it!!
I honestly don't think I've could have picked a better vacation home to stay in while in Exuma! The cottage sits on a beautiful hill with an incredible view of Rosemary's garden and the harbor. The pictures really don't do these views any justice, you really just have to go and see for yourself! The house is spotless and spacious enough for a couple. It has everything you need from kitchen utensils to beach chairs! There is even a washer/dryer room outside which came in handy. Nobody wants to bring a suitcase home full of dirty clothes. We thought staying in Georgetown was a perfect central location to everything. The cottage is very close to the fish fry (maybe a minute drive) We ate at Shirley's 4-5 times being that it was so close and convenient. Plus delicious food! I would suggest renting a car while visiting the island unless you want to stay in the immediate area of the cottage but you would be very limited on what you can see. There is a beautiful beach at the bottom of the hill with crystal clear water and good snorkeling! There are grocery stores within a 5 minute drive of the cottage. I would suggest bringing any snacks/food you like with you because food on the island is EXPENSIVE! We tried to at least make our own breakfasts at the house. Rosemary will help you with whatever you need and gives great advice on things to see and do. Don't feel funny to go over and knock on her door to say hello. She likes visitors! We spent a couple of hours with her one night and had a lovely time chatting about our lives! She also has a lovely cat named Pookie who is super friendly! We felt like we've come home with a new friend! We are already talking about visiting next year and would definitely stay at Halcyon again! No questions asked. You will not find beaches and water anywhere like in Exuma!
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.
