Guestbook comments from the manager
Holiday Affair is a beautifully decorated house located on a semi private beach. When you are on the beach it almost feels as if you have the island to yourself. The sunrise as you walk down the beach is breath talking, for me it was the best part of the day. The people we met as we walked the beach were more than friendly and had lots of tips to ensure or stay on the island was a pleasure. The house is large enough to be extremely comfortable for 4 adults, large modern kitchen with a great dinning room overlooking the ocean.

The house is centrally located on the island and you are minutes away from George Town one of the larger towns on the island. To make your trip more enjoyable plan on renting a car this way you can explore every nook and cranny of the island at your leisure. Remember this island saying while driving " left is best" as they drive on the left side of the road which takes no time at all to get used to.

While staying at Holiday Affair I am sure you say to yourself as my wife and I did many times over " this is a lifestyle I can get used to" . The island is as laidback or exciting as you choose to make it. Had we known what a gem Exuma is and what a beautiful relaxing atmosphere that Holiday Affair was our one week trip would of definitely been two.

Currently live in Los Angeles but originally from Canada. Family was one of the original families that emigrated to this Island from Scotland in the early 1700's- (before the American Revolution) We have a long history on this Island and much love for it and it's people! This is one of a few homes we have on the Island and we spend all of our available vacation time there.

Nancy Smith purchased this house in 2004

It is absolutely beautiful! The view is one of the best on the Island. It's peaceful, serene vibe and close proximity to Georgetown makes it as close to perfect as you can get.

Best Views Ever

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the photos on the website do not do it justice. The beach access & views are stunning, both from the sand and the large deck. No houses on either side & limited development up & down the coast mean that you rarely see any one else.

You can walk over a mile up & down the beach in either direction on the sparkling white sands to enjoy some of the best aquamarine colors we have seen anywhere in the world.

The house has full-length sliding glass doors along the ocean side making the view from within as good as from the outside. No problems with the furnishings, appliances or facilities. Jenny (property manager) was always a quick phone call away if we needed anything. She met us at the airport so we wouldn't have to find our own way & showed us the entire house & its workings upon our arrival.

If you only need two bedrooms, this is the villa for you. We don't normally return to the same places as this is a great big world to see - but this is one that we could come back to. If it was big enough for our extended family, we would already be making arrangements to bring them here.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The Holiday House was just lovely and tastefully decorated. I appreciated all of the comfortable beading, pillows and beach towels. It was perfect for the 3 of us. I really like Hoopers Bay, the location of the house. The house was on a great beach and located close to Georgetown and shopping. There were a few minor problems (refrigerator never worked…but a small one in the laundry room outside did, so we made do) and the air conditioner in the main sitting room didn't put out any cool air. But that kind of mechanical malfunctions are expected in a house by the sea. The salt air gets into everything! The internet didn't work for the first few days but eventually someone came out and actually repaired it! (I get the feeling its almost a miracle to get anyone to actually get a job done on the island!) But these things are typical in the Caribbean. I was happy that the showers had a good flow of hot water! (another thing that I find is hard to come by in the Caribbean). I would love to come back to this house. It was so very comfortable. Absolutely Lovely.

Owner's Response: Hi the house is not on Hoopers Bay it is on Tar Bay! Completely different beach and much nicer!!!! The fridge broke and I was assured by the island repair man it was fixed. It broke again so I purchased a full size fridge the day before to make sure they had one. It has since been replaced by a new stainless steel professional fridge like the one that was destroyed by a power surge. My house manager was informed about the AC but told not to bother right now as they didn't need it and when she was told about the internet going down which
occurs on the island someone was sent as soon as possible.
