BEAUTIFUL RELAXING SEA VIEW HOME IN TRANQUIL EXUMA, BAHAMAS.

Great Exuma Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Coconut Cottage is a beautifully furnished, recently built ocean view cottage with wrap-round porch, situated at a small, private development known as 'The Cays' at Hermitage Bay, Great Exuma Island. There is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and laundry area. There are three bedrooms, two bedrooms with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms plus a third full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and french doors leading out onto the porch. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the third has a full sized bed. All bed and bath linens are provided, including beach towels

The house is fully airconditioned throughout, plus high ceilings and ceiling fans in all rooms.

The beach and pool area are a 25 yard walk down a path, and feature a cabana with an 'honour bar', barbeque/picnic area, outside shower and rest rooms. Although it is a communal pool, all but two of the other properties are owned by absentee owners, so most of the time one has the pool and pool area to oneself. There are also fantastic, long, deserted white sand beaches just a few minutes drive away.

We are situated literally about half way between the airport and the town of George Town. There is a full supermarket in George Town which is about 10 minutes drive, or there is a small grocery store and liquor store about 5 minutes away.

There are several first class restaurants within a short drive, and one excellent one right next door. You can walk there.

One of the biggest attractions Exuma has to offer is the bonefishing. This really is bonefishermen's paradise, and there are several experienced bonefish guides. Our housekeeper/concierge can help you with making bookings. The scuba diving is also a big attraction and is absolutely spectacular.

Concierge service is available upon request, and can include airport pick-up and catering if required.

My husband and I live in Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas. WE have always enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the 'out islands', and built Coconut Cottage as a week-end escape.

BEAUTIFUL AND VERY RELAXING ISLAND GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Coconut Cottage with another couple. This was our first trip to the Bahamas and I would have to say that this was our most relaxing vacation. The water was such a beautiful blue clear water surrounding the white sand beaches and everyone we met on the island was so nice. The house was so new, beautiful, tastefully decorated with relaxing, neutral colors and furniture. Everything was just as described and pictured. All the amenities that were needed were right there. The owner Joanna was so easy to work with on booking the cottage. The property manager provided consierge service for our arrival with requested groceries and some Bahaman beer. He was always available and made sure that everything was going well and working well. He is also available to help book bonefishing, adventures and car rental. Make sure to enjoy the ocean sunset at the Gazebo bar (take your own beverages with you). We learned alot from the local property owners regarding some of the best places not to miss during this time - ie:water taxi to Stocking Island, drive to Exuma Point (read guest book). The ocean and private pool is a short walk down the path from the cottage. We also enjoyed just walking around the area as it was so peaceful with nice landscape and several beautiful homes in the area. We stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed the very nice bedrooms with private en-suite bathrooms. There were ceiling fans and individual air conditioners in each bedroom which made for a peaceful night of sleep. There was such a nice breeze while we were there and we enjoyed spending the mornings and evenings on the wrap around porch. Some of the most enjoyable meals were off the gas grill on the deck. There were several local cafe's and restaurants with such delicious fish. We recommend the drive down to Santana's in Little Exuma as the seafood was out of this world. Shirley's was just a short drive up the road and also one of the best places to eat fish or take out. And Catch a Fire is just a short walk from the cottage with a band on every Wednesday and Saturday. It was very convenient being halfway between the airport and Georgetown. This is such a safe place to vacation as you didn't really hear anything about crime on the island from the locals or returning vacationers. We would definitely recommend you bring bug spray for the beach and less breezy evenings. Since we enjoyed ourselves so much on this vacation, we are already thinking of who we can bring when we return.

HONEYMOONERS!!

  • 5 of 5
I could not have asked for a better place to spend my honeymoon. The house was AMAZING and beautiful and had all the necessary ammenities needed for a comfortable stay. We spent lots of time on the wrap around porch enjoying the breeze and the views. The bedrooms and bathrooms are so big it would be great for large groups to stay. Just a short way down the road there are many restaurants and grocery store. We were so comfortable in the house and its surroundings and took many walks down to the community pool with breath-taking views. Traveled into town and took the water taxi to Stocking Island and enjoyed the day with great food, music and drinks. Also very convient to go out on fishing and diving trips- and WOW what an unforgettable trip with the amazing scenery, and though my fishing skills are not good the guides were so helpful and I had an amazing time. Also downtown are really cute shops with lots of local flavor and everyone on the Island was so friendly. We plan on going back every year for our anniversary, I absoluetly could never get enough of this place!!!!

PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Coconut Cottage with friends, once at Christmas and once at Easter. Both vacations were phenomenal. The cottage itself is pristine, with brand new furniture and very tasteful decor. It's spacious and has everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The location of the cottage is a one minute walk away from either the beach or pool, which I often had to myself whilst the others chose to try their luck with a fishing rod off the dock! The resort was so tranquil and peaceful, it's perfect if you want a quiet, undisturbed getaway from the hustle and bustle of real life. The sunsets are out of this world and on our second visit a restaurant opened in the next resort along, so that you can walk along the shoreline to enjoy a meal or just a drink at the bar. However, if you want to drive into Georgetown to eat there, that's very close too and easy to get to. There are places to visit, there is a small ferry from Georgetown to take you to Stocking Island, a great beach bar and restaurant, where you are guaranteed to see one of the friendly rays swimming in the water. Or you can just drive along the long coast line and find your own secluded beach - there are plenty! We loved it and hope to return there again this year.
