One word...Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenage daughters have stayed at Poco A Poco two spring breaks in a row and each trip was absolutely perfect!!

I'll keep this simple:

1. The home is exquisite, well appointed, and beautiful! The wrap around porch, hamocks/hamocks/hamocks!! dock area, and private beach are incomparable! The kitchen is extremely modern and has everything you could possibly imagine. The master suite on the top floor is enormous with spectacular views, couch and sitting area, king sized bed and an incredible shower!

It is truly a breath taking home and location!

2. The views are extraordinary, and access to the nearby cays is walkable at low tide. Awesome for exploring!

3. The home site offers incredible solitude in an incredibly beautiful area.

4. I am an avid bonefisherman and DIY bonefishing is right out your back door on the Airport Flats, which are known as one of the top bonefishing destinations in the world! I bring an 8 weight and have had great luck!

5. The owner Eric is wonderful to work with and the house manager Kay is very responsive and wonderful to work with as well!!

6. Close to downtown Georgetown yet far enough to feel out peace and solitude.

We've made incredible family memories ad Poco A Poco and I look forward to returning often!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

The home was immaculate -- VERY clean and beautifully maintained. The décor and the furnishings were very tasteful and high-quality, and the house was well-stocked with all of the necessities. The beds and the furniture were very comfortable, and there was ample seating for lounging and for and dining -- both inside and outside. Clearly the owners are serious about guests enjoying their experience – it’s evident they are serious about, and have a talent for hospitality.

There is a reason you hear about a “Bahama Breeze” (we stayed at Poco in July, the height of the summer). The lovely 24/7 breeze made being out on the deck delightful -- whether sitting around, or in a hammock, day or night. The 180-degree view of the water from most rooms in the house was unbelievable.

We pretty much followed the “what to do” suggestions in the Poco guest packet to a tee, and the kids had a blast. They have a huge supply of good masks and fins and snorkels (for all ages). We also snorkeled along the rocks right out from the house and it was great – there were a ton of small colorful fish and my kids loved that. My kids also fished off the dock and caught a bunch of small fish (we bought bait at the marina up the street).

While it was great to eat the local fare at many of the places recommended (the food was excellent and we never had a disappointing meal), there are several grocery stores to “stock up” and we ended up cooking several meals at the house – and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals

Our stay at Poco, because of how lovely the house and the setting is, but also because of all of the fun things we got to do as a family, made this one of my family’s most memorable trips ever. We’d go back in a heartbeat!

We Had a Wonderful Family Trip to Poco a Poco

  • 5 of 5

I took five teenagers with me to stay at Poco a Poco for ten days in August of this summer. We had a truly amazing time, and built memories that will last a lifetime. The home was actually better than the photos, the place was very clean and well designed, and the house manager, Kay, couldn't have been nicer.

We had a wonderful time exploring the many exciting destinations in the area, and I highly suggest that you rent a small boat and hire a local as your guide for a few hours one day to show you the hidden spots where you can swim with sea turtles, rays, and other beautiful animals in the wild.

Poco a Poco is a very special place, and I look forward to taking my family and good friends back to see the blue water and enjoy the culture of this unique location.

Sincerely,

Vince Marotta

"Solitude and Beauty"

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of five, found "Poco a Poco" perfect for all aspects of our vacation wants and needs. From the beginning, Owner Eric was very responsive to all of our questions and pre-trip planning. His attention to detail in an information book he provided, guided us throughout our week.

Upon our arrival at George Town Airport on a direct flight from Charlotte NC, which was a nice surprise, we picked up our rental van across the street at Thompson's Rental cars. Family and luggage loaded, headed to the Exuma Market to meet Kay, the property manager. Communicating with the "WhatsApp" app, Kay was waiting to escort us to the house when we arrived.

Completing a short drive, our breath was taken away when the trees parted to reveal the amazing property.

The description and pictures are accurate, if not understated. The interior of the house was extremely clean and well appointed. The Kitchen lacked nothing we needed throughout the week, as we cooked or ate in daily. We found the Exuma Market and the Butcher shop above Fish Fry had all the fixings for great lunches and dinners.

Local restaurants and snacks are a bit unpredictable, so we found "carryout" worked perfect. The view from table on the wrap around porch was the best on the island. Several evenings, we brought in dinner from the Da Out Deck and Shirley's at Fish Fry. These local Chef's are great cooks and very personable.

Through Eric's assistance and recommendations, we booked scuba dives and a boat rental to explore the Elizabeth Harbor snorkeling spots and Chat n Chill. The property has good quality snorkel gear and cooler to enhance a day on a boat. Make sure to snorkel and explore the rock sea wall in front of the house. It is loaded with marine life. We saw Turtles, Stingrays, and tons of tropical fish steps off the beach.

A special treat was exploring the island about a mile in front of the house. We Kayaked over and around the island at "High Tide" to find an amazing sand beach and crystal clear water. At "Low Tide" we Kayaked to the exposed sandbar and walked to the island. Just reference the local tide charts before striking out.

In summary, if you desire a private property with an easily navigated local experience... "Poco a Poco" is the hidden gem you have been looking for.

Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience! Sometimes pictures can capture an image in a way that is better than reality but with this house reality far exceeded our expectations. The house is perfect for a quiet get away or entertaining a group. The water is absolutely amazing and the people of the Bahamas are so nice and inviting. You can paddle board, kayak, or snorkel right from the house or explore the island for a beautiful adventure. This trip was nothing short of amazing and that started with finding this house. Eric was great and the house manager Kay was very helpful as well. My best advice is if there is availability for your trip book it now. I promise you will be happy you did!
