GREAT

  • 5 out of 5
What GREAT time we had at Jolly Turtle hose. The house was clean and neat. Perfect for the five Stewart cousins and spouses. Thanks for the condiments, spices and coffee that were stocked for us. The views were amazing. We wanted to just sit forever and look out at the beautiful water. What a treat for us that there was a regatta going on that week. We saw some beautiful boats every morning!! There were a couple of issues but a quick call to Steve and all was fixed. Sorry for the middle of the night call...too many Goombay Smashes! Our stay was wonderful; thanks to Patrick our taxi man, Bob with the Exuma Cays Adventure and Dallas with the fishing charter. Stocking Island and Chat 'N Chill were lots of fun. We even joined in the tournament fun with coconut challenge, beach golf and bocce ball. Won a couple of awards too! Have already recommended you, Steve, to friends who are looking for a great place. Thank you again for a wonderful time and hopefully the Stewarts will return soon!!!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 out of 5
The house was perfect. The view is amazing and the house has a very airy feel to it. We rent lots of houses all over and really appreciated that someone was thinking when they designed this house. The bathrooms and bedrooms were well planned. The necessary conveniences are in the kitchen and laundry and we really loved the solid clear railing which doesnt seem like a big deal until you are on the deck during a high wind. Also, it was fantastic to have a pool for swimming at night. Rent a boat at Minns and hire Bob at exumaseatours.com to take you to Staniel Cay for the day to swim with pigs and dive the gratto. Enjoy.

DISAPPOINTED

  • 3 out of 5
We read all the reviews on the web page and our expectation level was high. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary with our children and grandchildren.
On a positive note, the setting was perfect as was the pool which was cleaned during our stay and the beach and the beautiful water were all as described. The owner did respond to emails.
For us the issue was cleanliness, furniture and equipment.
The fridge and cupboards were dirty and disorganized with left over food from previous renters. We spent the first 3 hours cleaning and vacuuming with a wet/dry vac.
The beds had not been changed - there were sheets with hairs and beds with ants. I washed all the sheets which are of very poor quality - NOT cotton. The cleaning service did come round and give me detergent. It would have been nice to have had all the polythene off the beds and bed skirts put on.
A number of the dining room chairs had broken backs and the leather settees had cracked and split which made sitting very uncomfortable. The sofas had been covered with ill-fitting stretchy covers. To be fair, the handyman came immediately and repaired the chairs for us. The sofas need replaced.
The TV in the lounge worked for a few minutes then lost the picture - the tv in the bedroom did not work. We complained about this, BUT it was the holidays so nothing of substance could be done.
There were not enough unbroken glasses for us to sit at dinner and each have a wine glass.
We cook and the utensils for doing so were limited. No blender for drinks, no measuring cups, no wooden spoons - very few basics. And all in disarray.
Sadly we could not recommend this property to our friends, (unless there were upgrades) and were told by all the folks who came to help us that there have been a number of complaints regarding the sheets and the furniture and the equipment. These folks were great, but losing heart with this situation.
Exuma beach resort was great for dinner and lunch - walkable but also a taxi ride for the way home. The beach just down the road was also lovely and we took it in turns to swim there and walk back. The wee market is very close - shuts early on a Sunday which was unexpected for our arrival - we should have done more homework. The islanders are wonderful about offering lifts when one has 2 wee ones in tow. We did hire a car for part of our stay and visited other beaches and Georgetown.

Owner's Response: Very sorry to read this review, particularly after we responded immediately to your concerns and also being Christmas, pleased that everyone looking after the house were able to come round and fix all of the small items you mentioned .
The sheets are of reasonable quality some brand new cotton and some with cotton mix to avoid crumples. Two seats out of the twelve seats had merely worked loose, which were also fixed immediately. The cleaning lady came back immediately to rectify the few areas you were concerned about.
There seems to be a large degree of exaggeration going on here as there is a blender and sufficient glasses and crockery for 12 people in the house we bought just before your arrival. She had left food and various items ourt of kindness in the cupboards thinking you would be grateful for that, instead of complaining they were there. We have two very expensive satelite televisions and immediately fixed those, and indeed now replaced again after only one year with brand new televisions to avoid any issues like this happening again. We are glad that, as you say, the house and pool were acceptable to you.

WONDERFUL STAY AT JOLLY TURTLE

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great, large house in a fantastic location. It is close to several beautiful beaches and George Town, while at the same time seeming very private. The house was extremely comfortable, well appointed, and clean. It had amazing views of the ocean, which is mere steps away from the front balcony where we spent the vast majority of our time while at the house! The water right in front of the house, while not a wide sandy stretch, was perfect for short swims at the beginning and end of each day.

Steven was a pleasure to work with and was always quick to respond to any questions whatsoever when we were planning our trip.

In all, Jolly Turtle and Great Exuma are both definitely recommended. While we didn't get to to make it to the Land and Sea Park (that's for next time), our trips to Stocking Island and Chat n Chill, which are visible front the house, were both outstanding - the Sunday pig roast is highly recommended.

GREAT VACATION

  • 4 out of 5
We just returned from an amazing stay at the Jolly Turtle House. 10 of my family members were very happy with the accommodations this house offered. The beach in front of the house was beautiful and perfect for snorkeling. The beach was wonderful for our kids and the water was shallow enough for us to feel very safe with our children. The pool was a wonderful amenity to have at the house also. The location of the home was very close to Georgetown and with in walking distance to a grocery store. The home felt very private and the view of the water was unbeatable! The owner of the home was easy to work with and always was quick with a response to any question I had. Thanks so much for a great stay!

JOLLY TURTLE FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at the Jolly Turtle at the end of March. We had a fantastic experience! The home itself was perfect for our 2 families. The deck looking out to the ocean was amazing. My son found a large star fish while snorkeling right off our beach. The kids had fun playing pool games in the pool. Also, the location of the home is great. It is walking distance to Smitty's convenience store where we bought groceries, beverages, ice, and supplies. We also walked to the Jolly Hall Beach (a beautiful long beach on the island) almost every day about 1/2 mile up the road. From there, we would often walk up to the Splash Restaurant which has great food and a casual atmosphere. The taxi service on the island was wonderful. We developed a relationship with 2 drivers that were always available when needed. The island people are very friendly. We always felt safe in town and on our tours. We had a wonderful experience on an all day charter with 4 C's Adventures. We loved everything about our time on the Island of Exuma and our stay at the Jolly Turtle. We plan to return as soon as possible. So, based on our great experience, we very highly recommend the Jolly Turtle..it was the perfect place to stay!
