Recent visitors to Adagio told us that even though they only had 5 days to spend with us, they felt renewed because they quickly calmed down, relaxed & thoroughly enjoyed the therapeutic surroundings.
A perfect getaway
My husband and I stayed for a wonderful week at Adagio Cottage. It exceeded our expectations. The cottage is beautiful and well-maintained. The beds and furniture are very comfortable. The owners are also very warm, gracious and helpful. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back and enjoy the crystal clear water and soft sugary sand of the deserted beach. If you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy your significant other, this is it. You can grill a wonderful meal and enjoy it on the porch with a beautiful ocean view and no one to bother you. The half-hour drive into town isn't that bad, but staying in is so much better.

Seclusion with luxury
Wow, what can I say? Over delivered on every front. Air conditioned beach house 200 feet from the water, telephone, internet and satellite TV. Fully featured kitchen and fantastic master en-suite. Nearest supermarket 20 miles away, but nearest beach diner/bars a mere 2/3 miles away. A car a must have. The owners are next door and offer just the right amount of help and advice. They even let me put ham radio antennas and wires up with encouragement and support. Saw few other people on the beach. I will be back!!!

Our last stay was just as amazing as our first. My wife and I were engaged in the Bahamas 3 years ago and while we have stayed at various places we continue to come back to the paradise that is Adagio. We love the world’s best beach that runs for miles. Being to various places in the world I have never seen a beach and sandbar as amazing as it is at Adagio. If you love getting away for a romantic getaway or just to relax and get your mind reset to a more manageable pace this is definitely the place. Dell and Bill thank you very much for another amazing stay in Paradise and congratulations on the renovations the place is looking better than ever. Until next time.

A great place!
We got to spend a week of relaxation and fun! I got to spend a week playing radio! This house is perfect for a long getaway and a place to unwind. Over the week we stayed at the house, we encountered four people on the beach. Most days it was miles of virgin beach and solitude. On a clear night, the star gazing is amazing! You are about 25 miles from the big towns, and that suited us just fine. There is a gas station (with some food items) if you forget something. The cracked conch and cracked lobster at Bishops (five miles away) is incredible! I got to play ham radio and the location is amazing. Very quiet and secluded. Lots of good signals! I left an HF6V vertical for others to use. Enjoy and take care of the antenna for future visitors. I'd recommend Del and Bill's place to anyone who'd like to totally get away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Enjoy some quiet time on the beach and relax in this beautiful cottage!

Wow! The perfect vacation - didn't want to leave. We loved being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of "touristy" areas and just listen to the gentle ocean waves. I pinched myself every single time I went out to the beach to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Stunning clear/turquoise water, white sand and absolutely no one around on the beach. Like having our own paradise. Very nice to have a king sized bed, comfy pillows, in-house laundry, internet and fully equipped kitchen and bbq. The grocery stores in town have everything you need (and very well-priced liquor) and the Bahamian people are friendly and helpful. Bahama John's beachside grill is a short 15-minute drive away if you don't feel like cooking, and he boasts the best ribs on the island. A gas station 3 minutes away carries any items you forgot at the grocery store and while we didn't sample it, the food in their little "restaurant" smelled delicious too. Adagio's large screened porch provides the perfect place to enjoy your meals while looking out over the lovely yard and out into the ocean. The ocean is full of treasures to be seen and enjoyed - we saw several manta rays, a seahorse, a barracuda and crabs galore. The yacht club is about 20 minutes away if you want to look at gorgeous boats and enjoy lunch. At the other end of the island, Paradise Cove has beautiful snorkeling along a coral reef - worth the drive but on our last day a local told us that the reef just down the beach from Adagio is the same if not better. All the comforts of home with beautiful private beach just steps away... we loved Adagio!!

Best vacation ever!
We were looking for a romantic and relaxing vacation to escape the horrible Canadian winter and that is exactly what we were treated with. We enjoyed the private white sand beach and walking out at low tide and snorkeling in the coral reef just off shore. The cottage was very well kept and outfitted with everything we needed. Del and Bill were amazing hosts and Adagio is so much more fun and has so many more benefits than staying at a resort. Waking up every morning to the ocean breeze and amazing sunrises was something we will remember forever. I recommend getting a car to explore the island like we did. We found all the locals to be very nice and we felt quite comfortable, safe, and relaxed everywhere we went. The Grand Bahama Island life is something special! G

We had a wonderful relaxing week at Adagio. The cottage is perfect and extremely comfortable. Del and Bill are superb hosts and made us feel very, very welcome. Highly recommend Adagio to all and especially those who are looking for a relaxing and restorative vacation.

The cottage is fabulous, worth every penny and ten times better than any hotel room you could stay in. We wanted a secluded beautiful get away and that’s what Adagio gave us. The beach is fantastic, the water and surroundings pristine, and the atmosphere tranquil. I have already recommended to all my friends and we hope to be back someday. A special vacation spot.

We had a wonderful honeymoon week at Adagio Cottage. The house is lovely and cozy, the beach and water spectacular and all the locals friendly. Go to Diamond Sunrise and have conch fritters. Ask Doris about events on the island and where to find the best local food. Have a Bahama Mama while you chat. We recommend the day trip to Peterson's Cay for kayaking and snorkeling. Chad is a great guide if you can get him. Best of all is the restful, quiet and beautiful Adagio and all that comes with it. Thanks to Del and Bill for warm hospitality, a bottle of champagne and a special sand dollar. We're taking back fond memories as well as a suitcase full of beach treasures.
