Outer islands Bahamas - advice please :)

Jump to last reply

We (myself , my husband, 3 daughters ages 8, 13, 15) would like to travel to Outer Islands first 9-10 days of Nov. 2013. I am wondering if staying in a VRBO (which we have done before in other places) is less $$ than staying in a hotel?




This is what we are hoping for :


1. We love to venture out and explore...car or golf cart


2. We love boating, so we would like to be on an island where we can rent a boat to go to other close by islands without hitting dangerous water


3. We are looking to maybe split up our stay on 2 different islands ...thoughts??


4. Groceries, wine/drinks not too far off...kids eat all day lol


5. Would love for the kids to experience something unique such as swimming pigs...cultural experiences...maybe snorkling


6. My husband has been to Eleuthera and Harbour island...and loved it




Looking forward to ideas...thanks :)
