3 Little Birds was AMAZING!!! August 3-10 2018

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! It was simply paradise, the house was perfect for our group of 6, very clean and quiet location. We loved walking to the island directly across from the house and kayaking. This was our first trip to the Bahamas and it was so beautiful and peaceful. We have been to Hawaii a few times and I honestly loved this more than Hawaii. My family and I are hoping to come back next year and stay for 2 weeks! I highly recommend this house 5 STARS!!!

Also loved having the dogs Scooby and Bandit visit us everyday they were an added bonus, we were sad to leave them!

An amazing, quiet property on one of the best sides of Exuma!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved our stay at Three Little Birds on the Bonefish Flats. We were greeted every morning and evening with a beautiful sunrise and sunset, along with three different neighborhood dogs that loved to soak up the sun with us! From reading the reviews, I knew one dog was named Scoobie, but when two more showed up later in the week, we named them Big Scoobie, and Scoobette, since we didn't know which was which! The kayaks included in the property were a great addition. We used them every day. The outdoor shower for rinsing off the seawater made it so easy to rinse off the salt and sand before going inside, and was very relaxing! The property also has a few blow-up rafts that were great to float on.

To speak to some previous concerns about getting to the property and what type of car you may need - we were just fine with our basic economy car from Berlie's Car Rental. You certainly don't need a 4x4 to access the property, but you do just need to go slow and be patient on some of the bigger bumps. It takes a few tries to memorize the best route to get to the house, since there are so many roads that lead down from the highway.

My only suggestions for room to improve: Most of the pans in the kitchen were extremely flimsy and deformed, making it a little hard to cook food evenly on the stove. Also, the shower in the hallway bathroom was hard to use because there was no contained tub. The water would spill out under the sink and in front of the toilet and was not able to be drained from those locations...so we just ended up using the back bedroom bathrooms to avoid that situation. No problem, though.

One side note about traveling to Exuma. We booked a flight through american carriers to get to NAS, then booked a separate ticket on Bahamasair to fly from NAS to Georgetown, Exuma. If you're willing to go through the hassle of booking separate tickets its certainly worth the money saved. BUT, the late evening flights on Bahamasair are almost ALWAYS delayed by at least 1.5 hours (ours was delayed by 3!!!). Choose Sky Bahamas instead! Morning flights on Bahamasair are fine for returning to NAS, their delays don't back up until later in the day.

Finally, thank you, Tony for listing your property and allowing travelers like us to enjoy a taste of living on Exuma. Should we return in the future, we will certainly be staying at Three Little Birds. Cheers!

Needed peace, quite & tranquility & that's what we got !

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, view incredible, night time stars unreal, & the water just 19 steps from front door, warm crystal clear & only 5 feet deep at high tide ! It IS remote & down a mile long rough dirt road but thats part of the fun so try to call ahead @ "Thompsons" or "Don's" rentals at airport & get a tahoe or Suburban. We did have an a/c unit go down the first day but a call to Lawrence the prop. Mgr., & he was out the next day to install a new split-unit ! That is UNBELIEVABLE service in such a remote local with no big supply stores ! The only suggestion i have is that its time for new set of kitchen silverware, pots, pans, knives etc. ,the salt & humidity takes a toll & we do cook a lot of meals at the house as the availability of fresh seafood is fantastic ! & brought right to the house ! I'm sure some folks could spend the whole time at the house just relaxing & swimming but there is so much to see & explore on the Island & it is perfectly safe to wander around. This was my 16th visit & one of the best !

Heavenly views!

  • 5 of 5

The three little birds house was absolutely breathtaking. The house was very clean, and well-kept. It was everything we could have asked for. My husband, and our friend traveled out to the island in front of the house. It took them 45 minutes by snorkel and foot. They stated it was the best snorkeling they had seen all around the island. While my friend and I were floating in front of the house, we were fortunate to see a stingray. There is a cooler in the water tank room, as well as some rafts that we left for the next visitors. We also left a pair of flippers for anybody wanting to Adventure out. We were fortunate to have a little visitor. He was a sweet little dog, which we called lucky. He ended up visiting us every single day. This was my second time on Great Exuma. Cocoplum Beach was absolutely stunning. You definitely have to travel to Tropic of Cancer. Chat 'N' Chill is a must. We rented a boat through Minns water sports. You are able to take a water taxi to the island as well. The Stingrays swim right up to you and you're able to feed them. We ended up purchasing sardines from the Exuma Market in town. We ended up renting a car through Thompson's rental which was great. They're located right at the airport when you arrive. While there we ended up doing an Excursion through 4 C's to see the pigs, iguanas, and ThunderBall Grotto. This was our second trip with that company. If heading on an Excursion to see the pigs, I suggest running to Exuma market and picking up some bread and carrots for the pigs, and cabbage for the iguanas. We were very fortunate to not have a problem with the noseeums. Will definitely be renting again from Tony next year. My friend and I are so much in love with Great Exuma, that we're heading back in 2 months to stay in the house next door. I've been fortunate to travel all around the world, and have never seen a more beautiful place than the Exuma Cays. I would definitely give three little birds a 5-star rating.

Island Time

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 6 night stay at Three Little Birds with family and friends. Location was ideal, views were incredible, water was perfect as we relaxed on Island time. We had a Ford Explore which handled off main road commute to house and beaches. Kayaking daily brought home new sights and adventure stories. Walking to near by islands at low tide found beauty and water aerobics worth the burn. Exploring south found The Salt Marker and beauty of Tropic of Cancer Beach.

Must take items,

sunscreen, beach towels, bug spay, pack dry good foods, coffee, creamer, crackers, power bars, gatorade, soaps, shampoos, best grocery on the hill, great meats a deli near airport, best restaurants north of town by Shirley's shack. Bring all cash for ease and no extra charges. All casual clothes for this island. You will wear yourself out doing day activities so nightlife is a time of rest and reflection. We are coming back!
