The quaint town of Georgetown is just minutes away from February Point where you can shop charming boutiques , marvel at talented artists at the local straw market, taste delicious Bahamian food, or explore some of the unique history of the island.

Car rentals are available at the Georgetown airport if you choose to rent one for your stay to explore the beautiful island. Consider renting a boat or water taxis to enjoy many of the local attractions and the down home hospitality the island has to offer.
A must stop is Chat and Chill on Stocking Island where one can delight in an authentic Bahamian experience. This beach bar and grill won’t disappoint you with their delicious hamburgers and fries, or their famous Conch salad made fresh daily right on the beach. Join in on a volley ball game, Stingray feeding or just relax on its sandy beach and enjoy the island music. Don’t miss out; every Sunday is their very popular pig roast.

The Exumas are ideal for fisherman of various tastes, whether you enjoy fishing in the shallow waters or trying your hand at deep sea fishing. The Flats located near Great Exuma is a perfect spot to catch an abundance of bonefish, grouper, snapper and lobster. Or if it is Marlin, Sailfish or Wahoo that you are hoping to hook the Exuma Sound is a prime location.
If golf is your sport, an 18 hole championship course awaits you at the Emerald Reef Golf Course, next to the new Sandals resort. The course was designed by golf legend Greg Norman. It offers pristine ocean side beauty along the turquoise waters.
For beach lovers, one can’t miss some of the most private beautiful beaches in the world. Hamburger Beach, the secluded Tropic of Cancer, Coco Plum, and Sand Dollar Beach are only some of the breath taking beaches Exuma has to offer. If you are a little more adventurous there are many other small hidden coves and cays that dot the island that one can merely discover. No matter what beach you find, the warm turquoise waters of the Atlantic will prove to be an unforgettable experience.
By far, one of the most exotic, natural, breath- taking experiences is visiting the sand bar that magically appears out of the ocean in Elizabeth Harbor. If you catch it just right at low tide, it is a perfect location for an island wedding or engagement, as my son and his fiancé became engaged on this very sand bar just this past December. A truly memorable moment forever!

About Allen Henn
Our family is from the state of PA. When our 3 children were young we traveled many summers to the beaches closest to our home. The dark green, grayish waters were always cold and the beaches were packed with vacationers. As the children grew older we were fortunate to travel to many places in the Caribbean. Last summer, we traveled to the island of Exuma. By far, it was the vacation of a lifetime. We fell in love with the crystal clear, 85 degree aqua water. Exuma’s countless white beaches are pristine and private. It allows our family to enjoy its beautiful climate and water all year round while having fun experiencing all of the island’s many activities including snorkeling, fishing, golfing, swimming, and shopping. Not only do we feel that Exuma is one of the prettiest places in the world, we have found it to be one of the safest. The Bahamian people are beyond doubt some of the friendliest people we have ever met. We truly have fallen in love with Exuma and hope you would like to experience it too!

Why Allen Henn chose Great Exuma
The gated February Point community speaks for itself. The pleasant smile and conversation that the guard at the front gate greets visitors is the first warm welcoming that Februray Point offers. One then travels on the road through the beautiful lush tropical vegetation to the Serenity House. February Point offers many amenities including tennis courts, a swimming pool, a marina and a gym. Overlooking the gorgeous marina, February Point offers a delightful restaurant and bar. Georgetown is a mere 5 minutes away and ocean side golf is only a 30 minute drive. We would not want to be located anywhere else on the island.
What makes this house unique
Our villa is the perfect place to create unforgettable vacation memories with family and friends. The location is ideal, right on the ocean. It can accommodate up to 9 people comfortably. The kitchen and family room areas are open which allows for plenty of gathering space. The wall of glass doors in the family room swing open to the outside furnished patio. One can fire up the barbeque grill and enjoy eating outside or just sit and relax and take in the breathtaking view of aqua blue ocean and smell of the salt air.
