I guess there's not a whole lot I can say about Valerie's place that hasn't been said already. We had a wonderful stay and everything was just as advertised (and as we'd hoped). The location is quite a ways from George Town (the center of "action" on Great Exuma) but I'd hardly recommend using that as a consideration. Basically, on...

I can't really add anything to the other reviews, just endorse them. What you see in the ad is what you get. The situation is idyllic, 300 feet from the water, with a veiw across to the cays. The accommodation is fairly small & basic, (but you won't be inside much) and very clean, with everything that you're likely to...

My sister and I travelled from Australia and it was well and truly worth the trip! Exuma itself is stunning and I would highly recommend Valerie's cottages as an excellent spot from which to base your exploration of the islands. From the moment I first contacted Valerie prior to our arrival to our 5 am departure 9 days later (Valerie...

This is the place if you are looking for a laid back place to stay away from any crowd. Valerie is a fantastic host. She picked up groceries for us prior to our arrival. The best beaches are a 10 minute kayak away. Little exuma also has great beaches. Great place for fisherman.

These cabins are not on the beach, but don't let that discourage you from staying here. We had the most incredible time and really appreciated having a quiet, out of the way location to escape to after a long day on the water or in the town of George Town, just a short drive away. You can take the kayaks...

We just returned from a trip to Exuma, staying at Vaction Cottages in Hartswell. Val is a wonderful host with answers and suggestions that made our vacation fun. The cottage is a nice size and has most everything we needed. I loved the dock and the kayak, a number of times I walked down and saw bonefish cruising the area....

Spent a week there. Valerie is very helpful--and genuinely wants her guests to enjoy themselves. The place is well located, about 9 miles drive from Georgetown--close to the water (beautiful views), nearby beaches, and a few local restaurants. Santana's serves the best grouper : ) The pool area is peaceful. The whole place is extremely clean. Highly recommended if you...

We stayed at Valerie's cottages during our honeymoon, and we had an amazing time! Valerie is very helpful and knowledgeable, and she went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The cottages are lovely - the one we stayed in had a view of the sea, and her property has a dock nearby, which was...

It is with great hesitation that I write this review about this wonderful location. I only hesitate as I don't want the secret to get out as to how beautiful and relaxing the cottages are because everyone will want to go there. This was a surprise trip for my wife encompassing our anniversary, her birthday and my birthday so we...

Our trip was about a week and we wanted to stay somewhere secluded and quiet. After reading many positive reviews of Valerie's, we were excited to stay in her cottage. As many people described, Valerie was very helpful, friendly, and respectful. She is very easy to talk to and knowledgeable about everything regarding Exuma. Her cottages were clean, homey and...
