Well, all I can say is that Belle Mer Cottage was a fabulous home, even more beautiful than the pictures on VRBO. We arrived in the evening and were delighted to walk along the sandy beach, steps from the back door. In the morning we awoke to sunshine and the sounds of the waves lapping at the shore. Went on a day trip with Four C`s, swimming with the pigs, sharks and saw iguanas and starfish. Swam into the Thunderball grotto where 007 movie was filmed and would recommend that trip to all. The owners of Bell Mer were very accommodating and Cynthia, from housekeeping was also helpful with our questions about places to eat and supplies. All in all, a memorable place to visit and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a private vacation paradise.
Family vacation
We were very pleased with our stay here! The views are so majestic, and beautiful!!!!! We had 2 families with a total of 10. The bedrooms worked out great, adults in masters downstairs, girls in master upstairs, and boys in the garage apartment. (plus the bedding was super comfortable) The furnishings were nice, and had more than enough room to move around without being on top of each other. The memories made are priceless~take the adventure tour to the cays if you can get it booked. We had booked a trip with Coastline Adventures and Bob Smith was our captain. Due to the weather conditions other outfits did not choose to go out for the day. Which was to our favor. We were able to see all the sites without a crowd of people or boats. During our trip we were able to stop off at Little Farmers Cay to have the best cracked conch I've ever had. And to top it off we got to see Tim McGraw and Faith Hill with their family leaving the island to fly back to the states!!!!! I would definately do this adverture to this island again and again!!!! Thanks to Belle Mer Cottage for helping us make great family memories!
Best House! Best Beach! Loved our stay!
Oh my. This house is wonderful! Just reviewing the pictures of this great place brings a smile to my face. We were a party of 9 meeting here from Texas, NYC, and from aboard a sailboat cruising the Bahamas. This house will not disappoint! It was roomy for all of us and the beach can't be beat! The kitchen was fabulous, down to all the darling beach themed serving pieces. A fabulous time was had by all! Thanks so much for sharing your sweet property!
Exuma in May
We had a fabulous vacation in Exuma this past week and being able to stay at Belle Mer was a joy! We have two children under 5 and when we arrived they were exhausted from the trip. Being able to arrive at Belle Mer allowed the children to enjoy the beach effortlessly, being that it's only steps away from the back door. And the house is a joy for children - between the games, play do, Wii and beach toys. It is really a fabulous house either for a family with children or adults. The kitchen is amazing and begs you to stock the double refrigerator and wine frig with goodies. We loved being able to enjoy breakfasts at the house, packed lunches for the boat/beach days and then we went out in the evenings to enjoy the fabulous bahamian fare. I grew up spending my summers in Georgetown, specifically on Tar Bay. If you ask the locals they'll tell you Tar Bay is THE BEST BEACH on Exuma. Add the best beach and a truly amazing house and it makes for a perfect vacation. You will not be disappointed if you book Belle Mer Cottage!
Excellent Home
Our family of five along with my mother and grandmother all stayed for a week in this lovely home. The location is fantastic - just a few miles from the airport and a short drive from Georgetown. The best part was how close we were to the beach and the incredible views that the home afforded us. We did contact the owners about a few very minor things we had questions about upon arrival and they were incredibly responsive and helpful, as was the caretaker there on the island. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Exuma is a beautiful place and this home and these owners were absolutely wonderful to work with. As a bonus, they had a ton of kid toys for the beach available and lots of beach towels as well. We have very fond memories that we will always cherish.
All of the luxuries of home on a spectacular beach
This is a great house on a superb child friendly beach with all of the comforts of home, and more!. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and appliances and the double refridgerators provide all the space we need for drinks and food for our 2 families. We have visited several times to Exuma and this house is so conveniently located to the airport and nearby Georgetown that it makes our vacation really relaxing and easy. We love Exuma!, The people are among the friendliest we have met and we feel safe and comfortable on our visits.The beach is long and provides good walking. The direct Air Canada Flight from Toronto is a bonus, making our vacation even easier. We rented a boat from Minn's and had 2 great days of snorkelling and discovering the Cays around Elizabeth Harbour. There is great snorkelling at Guana Cay and Fowl Cay. If you can believe, it we also encountered 2 wild dolphins and swam with them!. The swam, within 2 feet of our reach, for at least 10 minutes. They were jumping out of the water - like at marineland! The kids were thrilled....and so were the adults! The grocery and liquor stores are well stocked on Exuma, but make sure you visit the day after the supply boat comes in as the selection is best. The restaurants we visited - Pallappa, St. Francis and Chat and Chill always provide good eats. Fresh fish can be ordered if you just ask the locals in town.
