We loved the location of the Sunset Cottage. It was literally right on the water and the view of Hooper's Bay was spectacular. We spent many hours on the porch enjoying the view and watching the sea turtles. The cottage was perfect for a couple and had everything we needed. We also enjoyed walking along the beach of Hooper's Bay. The road back to the cottage was a bit rough but other than that it was a great experience!
This place is unreal. It is paradise and much better than in pictures. Peter is the best host we ever met. We invited him to dinner and had a wonderful local food. I highly recommend this place to anyone that want to visit Exuma and get apart from the stressful and crazy world. We will come for sure many more times.
Cottage is as advertised, right next to the ocean. During the king tide you were practically in the ocean. Very simple charming place, Nice amenities, grill to cook out. Had all kitchen necessities but needed more ice cube trays. Beautiful sunsets and sea turtles, very private. You will get the occasional visit from the friendly neighborhood dogs. Peter even let us use his car a couple times to run to get supplies. Food and beer is very expensive. A case of beer is $50, bottles of liquor are roughly the same as the states. It's almost cheaper to go out for food all week if you have a car. We rented a car for a couple days but options we're limited as it was a slow time of the year beginning of October. Santanas in little Exuma was excellent, food and view. We spent multiple hours sitting on the porch looking out over the beautiful blue waters. However, the no see ums we're terrible. Bring the strongest bug spray you can! Overall we enjoyed Exuma it's a beautiful island.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Sunset Cottage! We were right on the water with our own private beach! Peter was great in helping us get settled in as he ordered our taxis to and from the airport and personally drove us to get groceries and took us out to dinner! I'd highly recommend spending your vacation here!
The view was amazing from the cottage. You are not close to water..the porch is virtually in the water during high tide. Awesome! Communication was a bit sketchy pre-trip, but it got better when Peter's son helped out. Don't expect a 5 star resort. It's a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage. We went in knowing that and we left thinking it was far better than what we had expected. There was plenty of room to move around and sleeping time was quiet. We had pretty much a private beach along with paddle boards, kayaks, and huge blow up island. Rachel (caretaker) is great. She is there to tend to any needs. This was our first trip to an island, so we were newbies. We didn't have "an address". Note: most of the places on the island don't have addresses. I guess that's why there is no mail truck. We used Sunset Cottages/Hooper's Bay as the addy to get through customs. They knew where it was. It's a small island. Plenty of supplies, bottled water, towels, paper towels, toilet paper, etc...are supplied. Peter, even had some suntan lotion and bug spray there. We had brought our own though. We would rent again from Peter. We got a great value and we have some unbelievable memories from Exuma. Loved the entire stay! Side note: I thought the panhandle of Florida was beautiful, and it is, but Exuma is that beauty x100.
Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. It is truly a little piece of heaven on earth. The location was wonderful. It was close to many markets at which you could buy food and other necessities. The setting of the house is gorgeous. It is located at Hooper's Bay which is a very quiet serene place. The water is beautiful as it is anywhere on the island. We were able to walk or swim depending on the tides. We were also able to go kayaking as one was provided to occupants of Sunset Cottage. The house was very clean and well equipped. It had everything anyone would need for a perfect stay. There were also plenty of amenities. Peter had even included towels which were meant for use on the beach. Peter was the perfect host. He was always available to answer our questions, but was wonderful concerning our privacy. Peter also took us by boat on a wonderful tour of the area. We were able to see many places that we had read about but could only be seen by boat. We will be back to Exuma and when we return we will stay at Sunset Cottage again
