Jericho House is a secluded property on the small island of Great Exuma. Houses on the island have names rather than addresses. Ours is no exception. Jericho House is named after a pond that has since then been filled but the name remains. The house is a simple single-story beach house designed for kicking back at the beach. If solitude and beautiful views are your idea of paradise, you will love Exuma. Exuma's appeal is that it is not filled with tourist traps and fancy hotels and restaurants, but rather that it a place of serenity where walks on sparsely populated beaches and boating or diving in pristine turquoise blue waters bring peace to even the most stressed-out travelers.
Jericho House is located less than five miles from the airport. It is difficult to see from highway, and the neighbors are barely visible as well. The property has a large number of mature coconut palms giving the home a very tropical feel. When you walk through the door, you will remember why you spent a difficult day traveling. The ocean is visible through the picture window and is the first sight you see when you open the front door.
My husband, two daughters and I stayed at Jericho for a week and had a wonderful getaway in a perfect vacation home. Jericho has a spectacular view and sits on one of the prettiest beaches in the world. The sand is like powder and the water is pristine. The home is well outfitted with all necessary supplies. We enjoyed the snorkeling right off the beach daily. Location is convenient to the airport and Georgetown and to many good restaurants. We enjoyed the boat tour with Exuma Water Sports and Justin. Swimming with the pigs and playing with the iguanas was fun! We also rented a boat from Mims for three days and enjoyed time on Stocking Island, especially Chat n Chill and feeding the sting rays. Santana's on Little Exuma was a neat spot as well and delicious food. I would highly recommend visiting Exuma and staying at Jericho.
My husband and I rented Jericho house for a week to get away from it all and have a week of relaxation and we were able to achieve that two fold! If you're looking for a beautiful setting right on the ocean, privacy and love listening to the sound of the ocean then jericho house is the place for you. We enjoyed hanging our on the beach, playing in the waves and walking the miles of abandoned beach. It always felt like you had it all to yourself! We were already talking about coming back when we were there and the owners made it so easy to book and were great help when we had any questions/ concerns:) thanks again and we can t wait to come back to this little peice of paradise!!!
We had a wonderful 10 day stay at Jericho House. The house is right on the beach. There was always a breeze to keep the bugs away. The house is well decorated, and with all amenities, including WiFi. The beach is at least a mile long and you hardly ever see anyone on it. If you feel like cooking in, get some fresh fish from Trish's beauty salon(yes) in George Town, or a steak or rotissiere chicken from the Butcher Shop. We chose this house over all the other home rentals on Exuma, and we absolutely recommend Jericho to anyone.
My husband and I spent a week at the Jericho House. We had a wonderful time. This is a perfect place for rest and relaxation. The view was beautiful as soon as you came through the door! White sand at your back door and great local food close by. We experienced the entire island visiting many local places and meeting many people. The owners provided us with all we needed. Fresh fish was available for quiet dinners at home listening to the surf day and night. We really enjoyed our time and will definately be back! Exuma was a great experience and the Jericho house was private cottage that allowed us to enjoy a much needed vacation!
Jericho House is a great place for families/couples who want to relax in a peaceful, beautiful setting. The house is on a quiet beach that you'll have to yourselves. Jericho House is clean and comfortable, and well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms, and for activities such as board games and reading. The owners are incredibly responsive and helpful in their suggestions for your stay on the island. Georgetown is a short drive away. I would definitely recommend Jericho House for a relaxing and memorable vacation.
We are very enchanted with our stay at Jericho house last march 2012. The house is well located on the great Tar beach. Great view. We enjoyed the secluded, the outdoor kitchen, the separeted area between the bedroom and the living area. The owners had furnished the pantry and fridge which was very appreciated because our flight was late. We found the house clean with simple but cute deco. We had relaxing and fun vacation. Exuma is a wonderfull retreat and the Jericho house is perfect. We recommend it and give the location a 5 stars. Les Rimouskois. Quebec. Canada.
