Testimonials

“Amazing Experience in Abaco” We were matched with Mrs. Glender Knowles. Her knowledge of the island, friendliness and willingness to help with anything we had questions about was astounding. She also helped organize a traditional Bahamian dinner that was simply out of this world. This was a once in a lifetime experience that my family and I will treasure forever!


“Absolutely wonderful! Do it!” Trina Lloyd-Cooper & her husband were absolute gems. I miss them terribly, they are now our family. A couple that's been married for over 20 years, their love for one another resonates in everything they do. They are such sweet spirits with hearts of gold. On our last two days, they even cooked dinner for us! And not just any dinner, but a Bahamian dinner!! We ate conch fritters, cracked conch, fried chicken & cracked lobster, veggies & Bahamian potato salad. It was all so GOOD! I truly love these guys, they treated us like family & we still keep in touch to this day. – Bryon & Jeannine


“A great experience!” Our first family trip to the Bahamas was enriched beyond measure by our gracious P2P hosts, Mahalia and Graham. From the moment we touched down, Mahalia called to check in on us and provided helpful tips. The next day, they met us and ensured we had everything we needed. They were lovely with our children and provided us a guided island tour, including helping us get a golf cart and bicycles. We enjoyed an amazing Easter lunch with Mahilia’s family and had some big adventures on the high seas visiting Green Turtle Cay. Our trip would not have been the same without them. We feel we made great friends who we are certain we'll see again soon.
