The best value on Exuma!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a dream. It's a real standout on the island, and what a value! Many tourists we met were paying as much or more for small hotel rooms or bungalows. We loved coming home each night to a spacious, well-appointed house. Nancy was prompt to respond to our every message, the showers provide ample hot water, the internet is strong enough to stream netflix, the AC units work great! There's a view of the ocean from the front deck (and even from the shower), a beautiful beach in walking distance, as well as the market and liquor stores, and some restaurants (we loved Shirleys at Fish Fry just up the road!). We never rented a car because everything we needed was close and the locals are quick to offer you a ride if you need it (usually you don't even have to stick out a thumb, they just pull over and offer). The kitchen is great, and has a gas range, and has most of what you need if you love to cook. The master bedroom has a gorgeous tiled shower, and the house sits up on a hill which makes the sounds of the road very muted. We would certainly rent this house again!

Bahamas are best!

Very comfortable and well appointed home.

  • 5 of 5

Shutters was an excellent destination for a relaxing holiday. A short walk to a nice little beach or stay on one of two decks to catch some sun. It is convenient to a grocery and liquor store, but plan to have a vehicle on hand for travelling to town and to the spectacular beaches found elsewhere on the island.

The house is very comfortable for four guests. Air conditioning works well on those warm days or just open the windows and let the tropical breeze flow through the house. The kitchen is well supplied with everything needed for cooking in and entertaining.

We would certainly return to Shutters by the Shore!

My First Trip to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing!!! It is surrounded by gorgeous landscape. The fruit trees were my favorite. The ocean is just a walk across the street which you can also view from the front porch. The beach across the street has beautiful white sand and the clearest blue water.There is also a back porch where you can enjoy trees, flowers and BBQ. This house is very clean, comfortable and bright. The kitchen is fully stocked with cutlery, cookware and dinnerware. You have your choice of eating in the kitchen or dining room. The living room is bright and beautifully decorated. Two spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds and AC. The two bathrooms both have showers. The grocery, food, beverage and pharmacy are very close...within walking distance! If your thinking of going to the Bahamas definitely stay here, the peace, beauty and house will take your breath away.

Its Better in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

we love this house. incredibly clean great view with a nice breeze. All full amenities plenty dinnerware & cutlery and cookware. BBQ .clean comfortable beds & bathrooms 2 showers Its close to food & beverage/pharmacy , all walking distance yet very private up on the hill. The front and back deck have equal eye candy with the tropical fruit trees..papaya orange and sapadilly to name a few. and Elizabeth harbor out the front. There is a nice little white sand beach across the road , just pack a picnic basket and a towel its a sweet little walk. Truly a great value for the accomadation & location.

We'll be back.Guaranteed.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptionally well-appointed villa, which you can tell was decorated with care. The beach across the street was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, with pink and blonde sand. The sunsets were also amazing and beautiful to remember. I would definitely recommend this lovely cottage.
