Frequently Asked Questions

To get in to Staniel Cay you can either fly in from Nassau via Flamingo Air or fly in from Staniel Cay via Watermakers Air. Both airlines have flights 2x per day.

Staniel Cay is about 1 x 2 miles long with a population of a little over 100. The island is a quaint and cute village where everyone knows each other and we’re all really friendly!

 It is deceptively difficult (and expensive) to get to Staniel Cay from Georgetown. Though we are both technically in Exuma, there are no daily flights or other transportation between the islands. The only option would be to charter a flight or maybe catch a ride on a tour boat from Exuma. You can ask us for help to arrange this!

Yes, we can get you here from anywhere in the world. Just send us your departing airport and dates and we’ll be able to get the best available quote for you.

a. Yes we offer several tours able to fit every need. We have all inclusive tours to feed the swimming pigs, swim with sharks at Compass Cay, snorkel in the Thunderball Grotto, visiting the gorgeous sandbar in the ocean, going to see the indigenous iguanas on Iguana Cay and also to Farmer’s Cay to feed the turtles. We have everything from group tours to private tours and even a la carte if there is just one or two things you want to see. Visit our sister site 3N’s Vacation Services for more information

Yes, We provide airport transfer for all of our guests, please just send us your flight and time details before you arrive. If you’re arriving by boat please call VHF CH16 “3Ns” and we’ll come and get you from your docking place.

We rent golf carts! You can let us know in advance and we can add one to your reservation for you.

There are only a few restaurants on the island. The Staniel Cay Yacht Club serves breakfast or you can check Big Dog’s for Carol’s daily special. For lunch and dinner you have a choice of the Taste & Sea Café or the Staniel Cay Yacht Club. For Taste & Sea be sure to place your order by 11:30am as the food tends to sell out quickly. It’s local and DELICIOUS!

Yes, we have 3 grocery stores on the island. The closest one to us is the Isles General Store which is right across the airport and a 5 minute walk away. Other stores on the island are The Pink Store and the Blue store, owned by two brothers and located side by side in the central area of Staniel Cay.

Yes, we can provide provisioning as little or as much as you need. Whether it’s just a few fruits and bread or a whole list including meat and special coffee we can do it for you. The charge is 35% of the total price which includes all shipping and handling fees.

Yes, credit cards are accepted island wide, but there is an additional 5% charge. I would suggest to bring cash instead as there are also no ATMs in Staniel Cay.

The swimming pigs are just a 5 minute boat ride away!

No, our property is not beach front, we are located near to the airport. For this reason we try to make up for it in our personalized service to our guests.

You can check out our reviews on Trip Advisor  where we are rated #1!

Yes, we do offer complimentary early check in for our guest when their villa is available.

Yes, we have one accessible room which includes a ramp, grab bars and other accessible features. It is our Mayaguana villa.

Of course! We’ve been in the business of wedding planning for over 15 years and have been blessed to help countless happy couples say I do in the Exuma Cays. Just send us an email and we will help you to create your dream wedding experience!

Well it really depends what you’re looking for. Our peak times are Christmas, New Years, Spring Break, American & Bahamian Independence Day and the first week in August. Otherwise June and July are our High Season. Low season in the cays is usually mid-August to mid-November. So that’s a good time to avoid the crowds, but it can also be a rainy season as well.

 It’s not that we’re awesome, it’s that we’re passionate! We are passionate hoteliers and islanders who love to create wonderful experiences for our guests!
