Exuma Blue is comfortable, convenient, and so romantic!
We arrived on the evening flight to find a car and driver waiting to welcome us. A short drive brought us to a beautiful cottage, warmed by candlelight, where the property manager (and concierge), Delwood, made us feel even more welcome.
The views of Elizabeth Harbor from the bedroom, great room, and deck were spectacular, even at night, as crystal clear stars, visiting yachts, and nearby Stocking Island, helped light that breathtaking sea.
After settling in, a short walk brought us to a cluster of small, open-air restaurants, featuring fresh seafood and friendly locals. The weather was deliciously warm and balmy. (No sweaters needed, even in December.)
We awoke the next morning, in the most comfortable bed, to an even more spectacular view of the sea. From Exuma Blue, the kaleidoscope of aqua and turquoise, just beyond the shore, is even more beautiful than it appears in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.
When we were ready to explore, Delwood brought us a rental car that, like the cottage, was very clean and comfortable (and the best value on the island). He introduced us to George Town (which is within walking distance), showing us where to find everything from groceries and restaurants, to banks and ATM's, to hand-woven straw and other local art.
Delwood also provided us with detailed information on all the different water taxis and tours (which are also all a short walk from Exuma Blue), so if you don't have time to plan excursions before you leave home, don't worry.
In the following days, we had so much fun enjoying the beaches on Great Exuma (and the water toys provided by Exuma Blue - we loved the sea propellers!) we didn't have time to take any of the outer island tours, so try to stay more than a week, if you can.
And be ready to feel completely at home. The cottage has a large kitchen, with all the conveniences, including an outdoor grill. The great room has very comfortable furniture, Wi-Fi, and satellite TV. The gentle trade winds temper the tropical heat, but ceiling fans and AC are available, if needed. And the bed is the bed you would want to fall into after a long flight, or a day in the sun.
But what makes Exuma Blue exceptional, is the concierge service provided by Delwood. He was available, whenever we needed him, and gave us complete privacy the rest of the time. And all of his recommendations were excellent. We now think of Delwood as a trusted friend and Exuma Blue as our second home ... in paradise!
