Guestbook comments from the owner

I had an absolutely beautiful time at Villa Marjorie. It is Gods little treasure in Exuma. My favourite part was the swing in the tree and picking grapes in the garden each day.

The water was warm and inviting. I am sad to go but delighted by the idea of returning very soon.

By the way I wish I could pack the bed and pillows and take them home with me. I LOVE THIS PLACE.....

Exactly as pictured

  • 4 of 5

We loved Villa Margorie! We have been to Exuma, so we knew we wanted to be on Tar Bay. This villa is exactly as pictured, with all amenities. We did have an issue with the sliding glass door. They are Hurricane doors so it is extremely heavy, we yanked on that thing all week! So much so, that our arms were sore! It sounds like a small issue, but you are constantly in and out, so it became quite the hassle. We Contacted the house keeper who sent out the maintenence guy to fix it. But it will need new wheels and a solid handle. Besides that, the villa is prestine, extremely clean, and beautiful! Well equipped with everything you would need for a small family. High end everything from the furniture to the towels! I will say that I have stayed at other places in Exuma, and this villa is very close to the main road, you do hear cars passing. We are very greatful to have stayed at Villa Margorie and do recommend staying here!

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marjorie is centrally located on the island and close to Georgetown and Smittys grocery store. The beach is right out your back door! We would definitely rent from Jena again. Cleo was terrific, attentive and a joy to meet.

AMAZING Family Vacation at Villa Marjorie

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a 7 day vacation to Exuma, and it was hands down the best family vacation we have ever had. We are a family of four with two daughters (ages 14 and 7). The accommodations at Villa Marjorie are exactly as pictured in this listing. The kitchen was well equipped and all appliances were in good working order. The living area was a perfect size for our family even though we did not spend much time there. The bedrooms (both king) were good size and both had perfect views of the amazing beach and turquoise waters. Both bathrooms were as pictured and were great. There is also a nice storage closet in the master where we found a few floats and a rolling cooler. The porch along the back of the home was awesome. It provided shade all day and the view was breathtaking. The beach was pristine, white powder and was virtually private. It was wonderful for swimming for the adults and kids. There is a rustic table and shaded child's swing which provided hours of entertainment for our 7 year old. The gentle slope to the beach has some coral beneath the sand, but it was easy to find a smooth path to the water's edge. We enjoyed floating, swimming, fishing and exploring the beach. Overall, this property met our expectations and we loved it!

There are a few minor things that I feel would have made this home a five star experience. We would have loved a few beach chairs for seating on the beach. The rolling cooler was great for our days on the boat, but should probably be replaced as the handle was detached on one side. The outdoor furniture was adequate and had comfortable cushions, but was not the best quality. We would love to see upgraded furniture. The outdoor shower was pure heaven, but the broken handle necessitated using a wrench to turn on and off. All are simple improvements to this already amazing property.

We will absolutely return to Villa Marjorie and Tar Beach! There are no words for the beauty of this spot, and the tranquility and relaxation we experienced at this property will not soon be forgotten. The kids are already asking when we can return.

heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our stay on Tar Bay! The home was clean and well appointed. The view from the back deck was spectacular and the sounds of the ocean waves crashing lulled me to sleep every night! It was exactly what I was looking for! The property manager Cleo was also very gracious and met us at the airport in order to help us locate the property upon our arrival. She also made sure we had everything we needed and answered any questions we had. We had a lovely time and will be back again!
