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.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The house is large and comfortable - the pictures on the website are accurate. Everything works (apart from the Wi-Fi on our visit - but we were the first visitors after the hurricane). Its a short walk down decking to the beach. The beach is beautiful white sand, and the house is on the best part of the beach. We had a great time swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, wave diving/surfing, fishing - and lazing about! The house is a little isolated and you do need a car - but you have the beach to yourselves, and the house has everything that you need. Stock up in food and drinks in Georgetown - its 20/25 minutes away. The kitchen is large, well equipped, and unusually has a fair supply of herbs, spices, salt, pepper, oil, vinegar etc. - so you can actually cook a decent meal! We had some lovely meals and some pretty mean cocktails. "Tropic Breezes" in Williamstown (about 5/10 minutes away) is a great place for food and drinks if you need a break from cooking. Christie (the owner) is warm and cheerful - in contrast to the reception that you will get at "Chat N' Chill". We hired a boat one day out of Georgetown, and that was great fun - the lady in charge showed us how to use the boat and recommended spots around the area - we just managed not to 'beach' on the sandbar. Nice snorkelling and a fun way to spend a day - we took beers and a picnic. No complaints - it was a lovely place to stay and we had a very happy holiday.
