Great place for the price!

We really enjoyed our stay. It felt like a private jungle. We did have a very hard time finding the place but we drove ourselves, maybe with a taxi it would have been easier. The property manager, Sue, is the nicest woman you will ever meet!

Avoid Periwinkle cottage!!
Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2014
It was terrible! Dogs barking all night long and no internet connection when they said there would be. Avoid it.

Property Manager Response:
Response from HG Christie Ltd
After so many happy stays, we are truly sorry to learn that you weren't pleased with yours. It is genuinely our hope that all of our guests enjoy their stay. Thank you for your feedback, we will share with all relative individuals. The collective opinion previously has been that Periwinkle Cottage is a pleasant place to stay for great value while enjoying the breathtaking vistas of Great Exuma.

With regards to the barking dogs: As confirmed with you prior to arrival, the owner of this home does have two dogs on her property. There have not been previous reports of dogs barking through the night and we are sorry this was your experience. Unfortunately, we were not aware this was an issue during your stay. We always seek to address and resolve arising matters ASAP, as we did with the internet issue. Yet, if we are being honest, the bark of a dog falls into the category of 'things which we have no control.' but, we will certainly mention to the homeowner.

Ahhh? internet on an island :) This house does indeed have internet, however, the internet issue was an island wide problem during your stay. It was our pleasure however, to jump in and immediately assist with identifying the problem. We were even happier - as we are sure you were - when it came back the next day.

Island life can often be unpredictable - throw in technology challenges with some canine freewill - stir vigorously with gorgeous beaches, white sand, endless blue skies, turquoise seas - serve with a side of 'laissez faire' - and this could perfectly sum up the quirky appeal of an island escape. :)

We genuinely want all of our clients to have a great holiday experience and wanted this for you also. We would love to share other vacation home rental options we have throughout The Bahamas and sincerely hope to be of service again in the future in arranging your stay perfect! Remaining available and grateful to you - Your Friends at HG Christie Vacation Rentals.

Periwinkle Cottage a True Cultural Experience
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2013
After spending 10 days aboard our bareboat sailboat charter it was nice to get our land legs back. The 4 nights we stayed at Periwinkle were unforgettable, a fair distance from Georgetown kept the evenings quiet and still within walking distance. Very close to well stocked grocery convenience and liquor store made it easy for us to carry our food back to the cottage.HG Christie and "Lovie" were very accommodating to our changing schedule and we very much appreciated it. Thank you all.

Everything went like clockwork, which is rare in the Bahamas! Great Agent, Charming Landlady couldn't have been any better. Close to Georgetown and Fish Fry, but you do need a car or scooter to make this charming & peaceful cottage accessable. Definately will be going back agian soon.

Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012
This property is one of my favorites..have been coming ot Exuma for 5 years! The owner is very sweet and friendly and very informative! You are only a short drive or walk to a grocery store or liquor store. Anywhere on exuma is not form the beach! on this property you are protected from the wind and noise of traffic. The outside porch is like being in a tree top! the little birds in the morning wait for their sugar treat on the rail. Wonderfully lanscaped!Inside is just like a little beach house! Nice bedding and decor! Don't pass this one up!!!

Quaint place in paradise
Jill G. from St Catherines, Ontario recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in January, 2012
We have visited Exuma very often! Our recent stay was in this absolutely sweet quaint apartment/cottage.The lady that owns it is very friendly and helpful! She was kind to have left a few groceries for us to start our morning. The colors in the apartment were so pretty and the wood pane patio dorrs with the sheers that led us out to the tree top garden was just gorgeous!Being a frequent visitor to Exuma we loved the the end of the road is the grocery store, liquor store and just a short walk or drive is the downtown!The porch which is outside both bedrooms was a great start to the morning..with little birds and hummingbirds. No beach is too far away on Exuma wherever you stay. We have stayed many times on the ocean but this was much more peaceful here and less windy!Would we recommend this property or stay again!..a big YES. thankyou!

Unique Island experience
Barry C. from Taylor, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 21 days in February, 2011
Periwinkle Cottage is tucked away in a residential area with an easy walk to a very beautiful beach. If you like living among the locals and get a connection with the community this is for you. The landlady is very friendly and helpful and everyone is trying to make you feel right at home. The cottage has a secluded shaded back porch which allows for privacy and rest during the hot parts of the day. We truly enjoyed our Island stay at Periwinkle cottage.

Quentin S. from Owen Sound, Ontario does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 28 days in January, 2011
The owner was a charming lady and the place was clean and pleasantly decorated but there were many negatives.- noisy with the owner and two dogs on the floor above.- no sitting area except outside. What to do especially when we had guests and it was too buggy or cool to be outside.- kitchen difficult to work in - counter space.- dangerous driveway, sewer smells, no view.- neigbour's dog bit my wife - not a relaxing road to walk or bike on.- overpriced - we found much superior accommodation near the water at a lower price where we hope to book next year

Wondeful time in the Exumas
Kenneth S. from Gainesville, Florida recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010
If your idea of a vacation includes a low-key setting where you can fall asleep to ocean breezes and the sounds of the surf, waking up to wild finches outside your door, close proximity to several restaurants, shopping, and beaches, all at an affordable price, then the Periwinkle Cottage may just be the place you're looking for.My wife and I recently stayed at the Periwinkle Cottage for a week long stay, and without a doubt it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The Periwinkle Cottage was perfect by being close enough to Georgetown that we had easy access to the Fish Fry, Minns Water Sports, The Augusta Bay Club, and many excellent beaches. However, the location was serene and peaceful enough that we also spent plenty of time just relaxing on the back porch (or the sun deck), reading books, watching the finches, and enjoying the ocean breezes. Additionally, the management staff are some of the nicest people you're bound to meet and took very good care of us.Some tips on visiting the Exumas: 1. Rent a boat from Minns Water Sports and go on a snorkeling adventure in the harbour. Stop for lunch at the Chat and Chill. Wear sun screen.2. RELAX.3. Have at least one dinner at the Fish Fry.4. RELAX.5. Visit many of the nice public beaches in the area.6. RELAX.7. Enjoy a dinner at the Augusta Bay Club.8. RELAX.9. Do one of the all day adventure boat tours; we used Four C's, which was a bit expensive, but it was worth every penny.10. RELAX.11. Take a trek down to Williamstown on Little Exuma.12. RELAX.13. Take a nap on the back porch at the Periwinkle Cottage so that you can...14. RELAX.Enjoy yourselves!10. Enjoy a Bahama Mama and a Kalik.
