“The most luxurious, fun and relaxing vacations ever!”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

Scott and Karla with their excellent crew of helpers ensured that we have a wonderful experience in the amazing setting of Bougainvillea House. The place was perfectly kept and of top-notch quality, everything was beautiful, clean and tidy. Matched the amazing beauty of the beach. High quality entertainment, from hobby cat sailing, paddle surf, or just floating mats to relax and sunbathe inside the water, complemented the opportunity to take walks along the beach or just relax with cocktails in the deck while watching the clear starry sky. Scott took us to sand banks and was always offering different activities to satisfy our entertainment preferences. We were a family of 20 with ages ranging from 82 to 5, and there were fun opportunities for all. Even large TVs for rainy afternoons. Scott took the youngsters water skiing, tubbing, and showed us around the island. Nola, Wanda, Velma, Shariqua and Deena provided excellent cooking and relieved us from having to attend to house chores so we could just focus on relaxing and having fun. Our standards for vacations bar was risen so high with this experience that we will find it hard to beat by any other vacationing option! We are considering coming back next year!

You are close to airport and not far from Georgetown and there are some houses on the beach left and right of you, but...the experience is just like the picture suggests. Wonderful, Private, Comfortable, Great! The beach is like a swimming pool with 4-5 foot water a ways out into the bay and warm and clear and Yummy!

“A breath taking location at a top notch, spectacular home!!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

This house and location are superb. If you are looking to relax and be pampered with something for everyone, this house is just right. First I'd like to mention that upon getting to the Island we were greeted and picked up by the owner who kindly drove us to the location, which is only five minutes from the airport. He then proceeded to inform us of all the things to do on the island and gave us a list of hot spots and must dos. The house is in pristine condition. It is directly on the ocean and has a wrap around veranda with beautiful large hammocks to enjoy the sea breeze. The rooms are all very spacious and beautifully decorated. During our stay, the pantry and fridge were fully stocked at all times. We enjoyed the best meals breakfast, lunch and dinner from Chef Nola. Our children are still asking when Nola will cook for them again. For the older folks in our party the indoor spaces made it feel like home and the hammocks gave them nice place to take in the ocean breeze. The kids had a large variety of beach toys, games and videos to keep them happily entertained. We enjoyed the variety of activities readily available as we stepped onto the beach from the house; as well as, the boat trips to the sand banks, underwater caves and swimming with sharks and pigs, to name a few. Owner Scott also took us boating to a nice spot for some downtime and lunch. The house is spectacular, the location like no other but the most impressive was the attentiveness of owners Scott and Karla. Their attention to detail and service were truly top notch. To them I'd like to say thank you for a fabulous vacation. Oh yes, and the fireworks display were spectacular!!

“Unforgettable Family Vacation”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

Just returned from a great one week stay at the Bougainvillea House. We were there Memorial Day week for the sole reason of taking advantage of a holiday weekend from a work perspective but being able to escape the crowds of the Gulf Coast and that we did! At Bougainvillea House you never worry about having beach chairs set up in rows next to yours. You can worry your chidren, not other children throwing sand and distracting the peace. The sport amenities that owner Scott and Karla have on site at no extra charge are memorable for family trips. Sail boat, paddleboards, three kayaks, a large float that can be anchored that holds 4-6 people, beach balls, volleyballs/nets, sand toys, and snorkeling gear, wow...must I go on. Even coolers provided in the house and extra beach towels for day trips. Fully stocked kitchen and a washer and dryer on site. All you need to pack is a couple of swimsuits and set your mind to island formal restaurants on the island. Recommendations for the trip: bring cash...extra charge across the island of 5% for credit cards, bone fish with J.J., take a day trip with Bob Smith on his Donze up to Stanley where you swim with the sharks and snorkel the grotto with 007! Buy specialty meats and great steaks at a new meat market on the way into Georgetown. No need to bring your own. Come with the mindset of a fabulous white sand beach getaway with open decks and porches to relax with friends and family. The house couldn't have been more comfortable. The Loden's are coming back!!!

“Paradise Found”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

Bougainvillea house is a real find! It is very private, we felt as if we had the beach all to ourselves. The house is ideal for families with plenty of beach toys and gear for all ages. Our hosts, Scott and Karla went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They even brought rainy day toys and activities for the kids! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We'll be back !i We would also recommend a day trip with coastline adventures to snorkel the famous 007 grotto, swim with the sharks and pigs. It was an amazing experience. Overall we had a fabulous trip and are anxious to return ,

We would like to thank Scott and Carla for an absolutely fantastic time at their house! It truly is heaven on earth! Not only did they take us on amazing trips up the Cays but we also got to use their kayaks, stand up paddle boards and Scott took us on his hobie. He also taught us the basics to Kite Surf as well. Definite place to stay if visiting the Bahamas... I know we will on our next visit. Miss you guys already! Rainie and Doug

“Blown away...”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

We had the great fortune to spend time at Bougainvillea House. First is probably one of the prettiest locations in the islands. Frontside beach and ocean views. The house is spacious and tremendously comfortable while affording all of the modern conveniences one could ask for. The owners are amazing and will spare no effort to ensure their guests have an amazing time. Always available with immediate suggestions with things to do. If you get the opportunity, take the trip through the Exuma Keys with them...its an unforgettable experience! Truly an amazing place run by amazing people. I don't usually rate any establishment five stars across the board, but, this place is the exception.

“Relaxing, yet celebratory!”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

Wow, what an incredible time! We were a group of 8 adults and our hosts, Scott & Karla, took care of us with grace and class. They took us to Staniel Cay on their boat for the day where we played on a sandbank, which only appears at low tide; fed the big iguanas; fed the swimming pigs; snorkeled into Thunderball cave to swim with the many fish; and swam with nurse sharks, very, very closely! The amenities on site are plentiful for whatever the water and wind conditions are for the day. On windy days, Scott took us out on the Hobie Cat in front of the house or kiteboarding on a separate beach. On calmer days, we kayaked, stand-up-paddleboarded or swam in the ocean. It's the perfect arrangement for a group, allowing each person to do their own thing, but still feel together as a party. Speaking of party, the various balconies and decks on every floor are enough to party it up in a different area each night! Relaxing, yet celebratory, is the sense that you get at Bougainvillea House. Thank you, Karla & Scott

“Just amazing!”

Reviewed 25 May 2013

The Bougainvillea House Villa is a true gem to be treasured! I do not often go on vacations, so when I do, I'm very selective. I am so glad that I spent my time here in the Bahamas with Scott and Karla. I can truly say that this was the best vacation I ever had! They were very hospitable hosts. Within moments of meeting them, I felt relaxed and like part of the family. The house is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable, but hanging out with the hosts themselves was the real treat. It was my first time snorkeling and sailing, but Scott and Karla put me at ease and made sure that I was comfortable. The highlight of the entire trip was the day we spent sightseeing around Staniel Kay on their boat. First time swimming with sharks and first time snorkeling in Thunderball Grotto are memories that I will cherish forever. I also went sailing for the first time on their sailboat. Although I was initially anxious about trying these activities, they guided me every step of the way and put my worries to rest. I feel so rejuvenated and energized after this vacation. Thank you for the wonderful time and I cannot wait to go back again!
