A wonderful experience in the tropics

We are still impressed with the beautiful island of Exuma where we spent a week. Local people are very, very friendly and the beaches the most secluded we have ever seen. We really have no words to explain what a wonderful experience we had and how sad we felt when we left Gail at her… Read more “A wonderful experience in the tropics”

Harbour View is the place to go!”

Our stay at Harbour View was quiet and relaxing. Our room was very clean and extremely spacious. Fly fishing and exploring the beautiful Moriah Harbour Cay by kayak was fantastic! The total seclusion of having your own private island to fish and have a beach lunch was so special. After a long day of fly… Read more “Harbour View is the place to go!””

Breath Taking !!

We have made many trips to Exuma but the accommodation and spectacular views from Harbour View far exceed any other property we have stayed at. The hosts were most helpful without being intrusive, and the nearby deserted islands are amazing. We will return.

Look no further.

This is it! The PERFECT Bahama vacation! We have been visiting the out islands, and bonefishing, for the past 15 years and have never experienced such an ideal location. Moriah Harbour has it all – scenery, solitude, and beautiful white sand beaches. Opportunities to swim, kayak, and bonefish abound. Numerous tailing bones are on the… Read more “Look no further.”

Intimate Beach Cottage

We rented this beach cottage not only because it was a cute little cottage but because it had a private kayak for two at its disposal; we could walk over to the harbour, jump into our kayak and peddle to one of the many deserted/private islands across the bay to have a picknick brunch… the… Read more “Intimate Beach Cottage”

Perfect !

My husband and I rented this house for one week while vacationing in Exuma. I was hesitant at first to rent a house but we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Great for bonefishermen

We had a great stay with Don and Gail at Harbor View. The view and location were fabulous. We had plenty of privacy in the upstairs (separate entrance) unit, but Don and Gail were extremely helpful when we needed them — like when we needed some butter and sugar! We enjoyed using their kayak to… Read more “Great for bonefishermen”

Top Choice !

We stayed in three different places in Exuma which were all very special and beautiful (Regatta Point, Coral Sands and Harbour View) and came to the conclusion that this is the best accommodation in Exuma with the best price performance ratio. By visiting the website we only had a vague idea but after being there… Read more “Top Choice !”

Fantastic setting with Direct access to Bonefish flats

We chose to rent “Harbour View” from Don and Gail because of the incredible value and the access to the bonefish flats. They are right off the balcony!! I was able to fish while my girlfriend tanned. We had an excellent time, and Gail and Don were instrumental in making the stay most-memorable. They would… Read more “Fantastic setting with Direct access to Bonefish flats”

Bonefish Heaven

Anything I needed, they took it upon themselves to help me. They even got me some supplies ahead of my arrival, saving me a trip to the store. The view is fantastic from their deck and from the master bedroom of their guest accomodation. For Kayakers, this is the place to stay, as they provide… Read more “Bonefish Heaven”

Wanted a place to get away from it all. Turned off our cell phones, ignored the internet and immersed ourselves in the quiet beauty of Exuma.

How IT Should Be

“The Exumas are wonderful. Spectacular waters and empty white sand beaches… truly what i had hoped the out islands would be. Don’t expect casinos, cruise ships, starbucks, nightlife etc…if that’s what you’re after, best to go elsewhere. Harbourview is a really nice spot with wonderful views of close cays – you will need to rent… Read more “How IT Should Be”
