I'm not even sure where to start with this review. I emailed back and forth with Rosemary, the owner, several times before I arrived. She instantly warmed my heart and I knew this would be an amazing solo experience. Besides the amazing person she is and the wonderful talks we had over the 3.5 weeks I stayed here, the house is just perfect. It had everything I needed and more. Be sure to get an idea of what she has before you pack because it can save you some room. The unit was spotless, decorated beautifully, and in the PERFECT location. I had reservations about staying too close to Georgetown as I wanted to be a bit isolated but now I regret ever thinking that. You don't need a car if you stay at this apartment. You can walk to the Fish Fry, the local hotels bar/restaurants, Georgetown, water taxi, etc very easily. I would, however, recommend renting a car for at least a day or two to see all the sights and beaches. It has a full kitchen with all the pots, pans, spices, etc that you need. It's like moving into someone's house. My favorite spot is of course, the porch. I spent many hours on that porch and on Rosemary's porch overlooking Elizabeth Harbour. It never gets old and she'll make you appreciate all of the reasons to sit on that porch. There is a beach right across the street from the house that is a perfect launching point for a kayak (from Out Island Explorers). It also has a great snorkeling reef just 100 yards off the sand. I can't say enough about my stay or my experience in Exuma. I left my heart there and I can't wait to get back very soon.
