5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location Beautiful people
I am a discriminating traveler. Would recommend this to anyone seeking the real Bahamas and all that it truly means with all the comforts of home as lagniappe.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay
House was as described. Everything was clean and Monica was more than willing to help in any of our needs. Kayak and beach accessories were nice to have been provided. We will be back.

5/5 Excellent

Top quality cottages and people
Over two weeks, I stayed in three of Minns cottages. Each was remarkably well stocked, clean, attractive, and functional. Communication with Monica was exceptional: all questions addressed promptly, special needs met with dispatch, and extra help instantly available. The "local feel" and location were exactly what I value. This is not a "resort," but a wonderful place to live well on the island, and a perfect place from which to explore. The only negative, as is obvious, is its location near to the highway. But proximity to the nearby beach more than offsets that negative. The beach is quite nice, safe, friendly and fun to snorkel nearby. Easily worth the price, and actually a great bargain when compared to anything else in the area.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful view and close to town
This was our first stay at the Buttercup and we will definitely be back. The cottage was very clean and we loved the screened in porch. Monica was wonderful and always available when we had questions.

5/5 Excellent

Great location, well equipped and attentive property owner!
My family of 4 stayed in Buttercup cottage. Monica was very accommodating and responded to all my questions and requests. The cottage has most everything you need! My only suggestion is to provide 4 beach towels instead of 3 for a family of 4. We made it work because there were plenty of bath towels! Location is good and very close to the center of town. We were still thankful for our rental car that enabled exploration of the island. The beaches and water in Exuma are indescribably beautiful. So much to see and do. Monica provides some basic info sheets that are helpful. You can find more info elsewhere as well. It would have been helpful for us to have received an email prior to arrival that contained info on page one in binder at cottage....things more beneficial to know prior to arrival versus once there! So as far as improvements I think a few more details and updates to your info sheets would be super appreciated and helpful. The rest is all good and I would not hesitate to stay at Minns Cottages again!
