About Mike McNamara

Here is the three kids enjoying another boring day in Exuma. They couldn't bring the family dog, so they had to settle for the swimming pigs.

Mike McNamara purchased this villa in 2008

Why Mike McNamara chose Great Exuma

Very private and secluded, yet can easily access all of the island amenities.

Awesome Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 10 who went down to spend our birthdays. We saw the photos on line and knew we needed 4 bed/4bath for easy operation. When we arrived the door was open and whispered "come hither". It beckoned to an awesome view of the beach and gorgeous blue waters that Exuma is known for. We only had a weekend which was just too short but this home was the best way for us to spend it. With 10 people no one was under foot and everything we needed was there, including games and movies, in case we were not worn out after a fab day in and on the water. For couples or families we highly recommend this home. The owner, Mike will provide you with all the details you need when it comes to things to do or places to go. Enjoy!!!

Pictures Don't Do This Property Justice!

  • 5 of 5

Took family of eight, aging from 4 to 60. We have used Home Away for about 12 years now and this was by far the best place we have ever chose. Pictures don't do it justice, it is so much better. If you are checking out different units in this complex, this is the best. Four bedrooms and four full baths were perfect for our family. We watched the sunrise on one side and could watch the sunset from back balcony. Ocean as clear as the pool. Nothing to do here except relax (which is what we did with kids and grandchildren), Rented a boat from Minns for the day (if you want to be on your own to snorkel or do whatever you want, totally recommend instead of a charter). Renting a car is a must, we rented two and glad we did. A day of Scuba and a visit to Tropic of Cancer Beach. Restaurants are shacks but they are the best. Take a lot of cash as most restaurants don't take credit cards. Take Off or another brand for the sand fleas (no see-ums) make sure you USE it. Check what is in the cupboards before you go shopping as many people have left certain items. I actually packed a huge suitcase full of toilet paper, soap, snacks, paper towels, dawn, I even made up a container of laundry pods and one of dishwashing pods - my bag was free but even if you have to pay $25 for a bag it is so worth it. I didn't have to buy any of that stuff while there. Exuma Market it s 20 minute drive and Island Prime Meat is halfway in between. Meat is best bought there, much fresher and super great to work with. Their salads are expensive but worth it. We had a few minor issues, they have a manager on site that dealt with things right away and Mike was always in the loop. Mike, thank you for allowing our family to enjoy your home!

Most Beautiful Beach!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW! This place has the most breath taking beaches on the island. It has a great Pool and Hot Tub and the condo is very comfy. I needed a major dose of Vitimin D and I got it at this place.You will love it. Great place to relax and enjoy some family time which is what we went for. Husband is already talking to buddies about getting a couples trip together. We will be back!

Awesome experience for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic all around. Had a very windy week, but made the best of it. We tend to stay at high end properties and we will not hesitate to return to this one. Excellent amenities in the house, beautifully appointed, plenty of dishes/glasses/cokware/spices. Our family of 5, kids ages 15,11,9 and my parents stayed very comfortably. I would rate this as the best family vacation we have had. Mike's recommendations ahead of time made the planning simple.

Must do restaurants: La Fourchette, Latitudes, Chat n chill, Big D's Conch shack, Shirley's at the fish fry (Charlie's was always closed.) We missed out on Tropic Breeze and Santanas due to not being open every day.

Rent a boat from Minn's and hire Brian to guide you- turtles at Crab Cay, lunch at St. Frances on Stocking island, private beach hopping, trek up to the Salt beacon. Great time.

Sugar with Sugar Adventures is a must. He visited us the night before to pre-plan, had a rainout day, but he still got in many fun adventures before the storm hit, then brought us lobster tails the next day!

Pack toilet paper. It is $18 for 12 rolls at the store. A $25 suitcase charge roundtrip is a steal if you can pack in crackers, snacks, detergent,toilet paper, etc. The house had dish detergent and some small soaps to start you off, but needed to buy the other basics. We ended up leaving extras, I am sure others do, so supplies likely vary.

Opened the doors every morning for an unforgettable week of beautiful sunrises. Pictures do not do this place justice. Do not hesitate to book this property.

A 'Super-Vacation'

  • 5 of 5

Let's be real here - the photos/description do absolutely no justice to the place! This place is amazing. We had the fortune of traveling with a family of 20, including 8 children and staying in two of the homes in the development. Mike made it easy and helped with accommodations for the additional home, being just a few houses over. Our family dubbed it the 'Super-Vacation' and continue to talk about it - a month later. Plans are already in the works to try to come back in 2015.

The house is amazing. the living room easily accommodated the entire family for meals and to chill. There was no shortage of views of the amazing water, from the house, the outdoor furniture and around the pool chairs. Not just the home itself, but the entire property was maintained extremely well, thanks to Norman and the team! The beach is private and I'd rank it one of the best on all of Grand Exuma. The pool is an added bonus when it got late in the day for the kids.

The whole experience was great. Mike was extremely hospitable, even with all the emails and phone calls we made, he helped make the trip memorable. With all of his advice, we were prepared with all the things needed to make the trip memorable before we even step foot on the island. day trips, car rentals, bakery/store information, what to bring etc.

I'd recommend this place to anyone. Can't forget - loved being able to open up the NanaWall System completely during the day, and having the nice view when closed.

So much to talk about, so much to praise, but you can't get truly appreciate it from a review or any pictures, you have to be there to experience it.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for spring break 2014 with another family. Exactly - if not better than described. 4 bedrooms(2 masters) worked out great! This home has all the amenities you would expect from your own home. Pool and hot tub right out front. 2 minutes from airport. 15 minutes to the boat rental place. The owner is so responsive and helped us with restaurant recommendations as well as car and boat rental. Thanks so much for an amazing vacation!
