"Stay In Paradise"
You cannot beat the view from this balcony. Don and Gail are minutes away from the nicest beach I've ever seen and not a soul in sight. Gail and Don were extremely helpful and informative. Their home is perfect for a couple or a small family. Exuma is as close to paradise as you will find and Harbour View is comfortable, clean and best of all has the most amazing view. We have already agreed to come back next year.
"Harbour View was in the perfect location"
"Harbour View was perfect for what we were looking for in our vacation. The owners Don & Gail were amazing! Don was a wealth of information before we got there and throughout the entire time we were there. He even offered to be our guide on a private boat we rented at Minn's, which was awesome because he knew all the great spots to visit. Everyday he would give us suggestions on where to dine & set up a couple excursions for us as well. As others mentioned even though they live in the downstairs portion of the home you don't even know their there unless you seek them out. The upstairs portion had everything you need with you own little kitchenette. We arrived on a Sunday & everything was closed so Don offered to pick up a few things for us for the first night & they were waiting in the fridge when we got there. I can't stress enough how amazing Moriah Cay is & only a short kayak ride from the house. Also, we did the all day trip excursion with 4 C's but would recommend a half day over the full day. Many thanks to Don & Gail for making our trip unforgettable and we can't wait to come back! "
"Just as great the second time"


We stayed with Don and Gail for the second time in August of 2015. My wife wrote a really long and informative review for our fist stay in 2014. All I have to say is that it was just as great the second time. The island is beautiful and the house is perfect. Don and Gail are amazing and went above and beyond for us when my wife had an allergic reaction to the sunscreen on her face. They offered her their own personal facial sunscreen (that I am sure was expensive) and saved our trip. I wanted to write this review just to say "Thank You!" to Don and Gail. We had a great time and I think you will too if you choose Harbour View.
"5 stars" Spectacular
I just don't even know where to start. The accommodations are great, quiet and peaceful. There were 3 of us, me, my husband and a great friend. With the 2 bathrooms, it work great for all of us. The little kitchen area had everything that you would need. You will spend most of your time on the patio taking in the amazing sunrise and the spectacular view. The water is the most amazing colors of aqua and is crystal clear. The homeowner Don (his wife was out of town so we did not get the pleasure of meeting her) was a wealth of information and assistance. He booked our sightseeing trips for us, gave us great recommendations on where to eat, beaches to visit, and even captained out boat rental for the day. We were able to see so many things that we would not have know about. Maybe the very best part is using his two 2-man kayaks to explore Mariah and Man of War Cays. the location of the house is about 10- 15 minutes from Little Exuma with the best beaches and restaurants around. You are also about 10- 15 minutes from Georgetown and the grocery, liquor store, boat dock to go to Stocking island (Chat n chill), and Minn's boat rental. you will want to rent a car, there is so much to see and do. Be aware, they drive on the left side of the road in Exuma! There is not much traffic, so it was not a problem. We rented from Thompson's and they treated us great. We went on the Four Cs all day tour. So much fun. The only thing I would tell you is no adult beverages are included but you can bring your own on the tour. We rented a boat for the day from Minn's and it is so worth it. it was only about $200 for a wonderful day on the water. We ate at Shirley's, Santana's and Tropic Breeze. The rest of the time we cooked our dinner's on the owner's grill. After reading other reviews, we brought a cooler bag in our luggage with some frozen steaks and chicken. Also bring snacks and coffee and such. Prices are higher on the island, beer is around $40 a case and usually $5 a bottle at a restaurant. You will not be sorry if you stay at Harbour View, Can't wait to return.
"Amazing Views & Great Hospitality" 5*
"This was my wife and I's first time traveling outside the country and not going to an all inclusive resort. So for us this was a big adventurous step. Then we actually arrived at Harbour View and that all changed. After being greeted by Don and Gail, we were able to get settled in and start enjoying our vacation and the wonderful views from their deck. Since we were not familiar in travel to foreign countries it was very helpful to have their advice from the beginning even before we booked. They also have a very helpful binder they have put together as well as being able to give advice in person when you ask for it. It is just like how the other reviews have put it and they made themselves available to answer any questions you would have and make you feel at ease. The rental itself is very nice and clean and has everything you would need for your stay. We even used their grill a couple of nights and sat on the deck to enjoy the beautiful views. We loved kayaking over to the secluded Moriah Cay and seeing all the wildlife over there as well. We highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Exuma in the future and we would love to come back again."
"Very Memorable Anniversary Trip. 5 stars" *****
“If you are looking for quiet, secluded paradise, look no further than Don and Gail's Harbour View. The house is located about half an hour down the main road from the airport. There is only one main road in Exuma, so getting lost in pretty much impossible. Don recommended renting a car so we could easily explorer the beautiful island. He was right. I'm so glad we did! We rented a small, four door car from Sure to Shore for $350 for the whole week. They were easy to work with and very professional. Harbour View sits fairly high up so you have an amazing view of the crystal blue sea. We took the kayak over to the cay just opposite the house at least three days of our one week stay. Make sure to go at low tide - it's most beautiful then. It's more work to go at low tide, but the sand bars and beaches on the Atlantic side are worth having to drag the kayak a few hundred yards. Don and Gail were extremely gracious hosts. They had so much good advice for making the most of a very short stay on the island. Here are some highlights from our trip and things you shouldn't miss: Sugar Adventure - it's pricey but worth it! Sonia's Conch Shack in Georgetown. Sonia is so sweet and makes a mean conch salad. The locals - talk to them. They are amazing and some of the warmest people we've ever encountered. The turtles under the docks at Hooper's Bay - These huge sea turtles swim right up to you. Goombay smash - local drink. So good. Chat-n-Chill on Stocking Island was a fun change of pace from the quiet of Harbour View. The Salt Marker is a beautiful view and great photo spot. Tropic Breeze Restaurant at lunch is a great spot. Awesome view and great food. If you want a quiet, relaxing visit to Exuma, stay with Don and Gail. You will not be disappointed! We weren't.

"Great rental experience" 5stars"
Harbour View was a great rental experience from the very first email to Don. Always prompt replies and really helpful, especially in arranging our car rental. Don and Gail are lovely friendly hosts with lots of local knowledge. We spent most of our time kayaking over to Moriah Cay, fabulous fun. A nice short paddle over to paradise! I have to mention the most amazingly comfortable big bed with the best view in the world! The kitchen area is compact, but very well equipped. The local restaurants are excellent and the takeout jerk chicken from town is fantastic. Happily, Harbour View is close enough to get the takeout back and still hot! We have been visiting various Bahamian islands over the last 10 years, without doubt this is the best island. The beaches are unbelievably perfect...... the shades of blue in the water will take your breath away. Most of the time you will have the beach all to yourself. Seeing only your footsteps in the sand is, for me, the ultimate experience. We cannot wait to go back!
