ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A VACATION IN PARADISE? You won't find commercialized venues (i.e. McDonalds, nightclubs, etc.) but you will find incredible local cuisine that is caught fresh and can't be beat. There is no one here to hound you about buying a timeshare, braiding your hair or making the deal of the day. The property is minutes away from Georgetown Airport.
The views are absolutely breathtaking. Looking out at the infinity pool and ocean seems as if the water never ends. The beach sand is white like powder sugar. There is always a warm comfortable breeze to keep you relaxed.
One of the most amazing attributes of the Exumas is the beautiful pristine turquoise water. The night sky without all the city lights is endless. This property is very family friendly. There is a Greg Norman Golf course just a few miles down the road at the Sandals Resort.
The local Bahamians are kind and courteous. You don't have to worry about drinking the water or eating certain foods. Great Exuma Island is about 150 miles from Nassau. It is about a 45 minute plane ride from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami International.

We are Tom and Nan Russell, Co-owners with John and JoAnn Hillen.
Tom and Nan Russell, John and JoAnn Hillen purchased this condo in 2014
The incredible ocean views out your front door and just a short 3 min. drive to the airport make our home as convenient as it is breath taking. Fish, snorkel, or simply relax by the pool. Your days will melt away. The only question you will ask yourself is, 'Where did the week go?'
Stayed for spring break with wife and three fids as well as brother, sis in law and their two kids. Plenty of room in this large condo. Clean and everything worked except ice maker but there were ice trays so no worries. Plenty of pots , pans, and utensils including three can openers. Thank you to the previous renter who left coconut rum and we made sure to pay it forward when we left.
The condo opens to the pool which is heated to nice level where it is comfortable but not hot. Hot tub was nice and toasty. The onsite property manager and maintenance guy were helpful. The beach is clean and not crowded. I really didn't need to leave the condo all week as it was just perfect.
Tips....bring snacks from home. Box of cheese nips was almost $9.00. There is a small meat market called Island Meats.....it is the cheapest place for meats and basic items. You will need a rental car to get around. I would not recommend Airport Rental Cars based on our experience with them and misleading website with add on fees when you pick up vehicle that appeared to be included on website. Bring some Tide pods as there is a washer and dryer and was nice to not have to pack a lot.
Bottom line...this is a well taken care of unit and the property is well managed and maintained. Not crowded and clean in a good location and would recommend without hesitation.
Beautiful & relaxing while at Exuma, Bahamas. One of the only vacations I have come home from relaxed physically & mentally. We had to 2 families in this particular condo (4 adults & 5 kids ages 5 years - 15 years old). The condo is very equipped with everything you will need & very updated. The grounds are clean & well cared for. There is a friendly property manager on site, which is great if you run into any problems. The view is absolutely breathtaking & the location is great. There are 2 king beds, 1 queen bed & 2 twin beds, so it was challenging to sleep 9 people (we had to sleep the youngest with the adults). The ocean water was a little chilly during March but we were able to still swim. Some days the waves were much stronger then others. But, luckily you have a beautiful pool & hot tub to enjoy also. Food was VERY expensive & not many options (example: box of Frosted Flakes-$9.00, Ritz crackers-$8.00). No fine dining on this island. My advice is to bring as much non perishable items you can. Others had stated they froze & shipped their meals/meats. I can understand why since the meat market did not have much of a selection (this includes fish). I recommend renting a car if you plan to leave the condo to even make grocery store visits, since nothing is really close. The grocery store is around 15-20 minutes drive one way. If you are planning to go to Little Exuma/Tropic of Cancer it is around a 45 - 1 hour drive one way.
WOW! Exuma is truly an island that took my breath away. The color of the ocean was AMAZING! Arriving at the villa was exciting, and was everything I thought it would be and more, and walking into the villa and seeing the incredible view of the water...brought tears to our eyes--awesome feeling!! The villa is spacious, clean, and decorated beautifully. We were 4 adult women celebrating my 40th birthday, and each of us had our own bedroom and PLENTY of space. Tom (the new owner as of the beginning of this year) was very prompt at answering emails and getting back to me with questions or concerns. We were fortunate to meet other owners of another villa in the complex and they were very friendly and helped us this questions. The villa sits on a well landscaped piece of property and offered peace and tranquility. All the locals we met on the island, treated us like family! We did a boat excursion with Four C's Advertures the day of my birthday and it was all I could of asked for--Captain Andrew and Yellow were awesome, and I loved the swimming pigs, iguanna's and sharks! We enjoyed the pig roast at Chat N Chill on Sunday, live music at Catch a Fire on Wednesday, very tasty lunch and wonderful people at Santana's on Little Exuma and took pics with Denise--best food I had on the trip, then spent the afternoon at Tropic of Cancer beach. I fell in love with the island, it truly was like a piece of heaven right here on earth! I cannot wait to return!!!
We had a wonderful vacation in Exuma and we felt very comfortable in this condo. The views here are absolutely breathtaking! The pictures on this site do not do justice to this beautiful location. The infinity pool overlooks a sugar white beach and a true Bahamas colors sea. This condo is very spacious, comfortable and clean; we found everything that we needed: extra sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, kitchen has lots of cooking utensils, pans, etc. We were 4 adults and 4 children ages 2-9 and we appreciated having a washer and dryer. Beds were comfortable and all the furniture felt comfortable as well. Two upstairs bedrooms share a large terrace overlooking the pool, beach and beautiful sea beyond. We could not help but notice that the landscaping is well designed and well maintained. The condo is well built and it features a folding glass wall on the ground floor that can be opened entirely to (again!) the beautiful views! and a spacious patio a few steps from the hot tub and pool. There are stores within 5 minutes by car, a butcher shop and fish market, a supermarket in Georgetown, and lots of places to eat out. All the locals we met were very friendly and helpful! For 10 wonderful days we explored Great and Little Exumas by car and lots of cays and Stocking Island by boat! We found very few beaches where we were not alone. What a heavenly piece of Earth! Thank you!
We had a great time in Exuma celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had 2 homes in this complex and everything was great.
Rich & Shelby provided a great deal of information and were very helpful!! Marco went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed while we on site. The property is very well maintained, centrally located and has the best views of the Caribbean,. Loved it and will be back!!
This is our second visit to Paradise. We bring our family (two young children), another family (one young child) and two babysitters when we come. Both visits have been perfectly relaxing vacations. The privacy and home-like feel make it ideal for families so that you don't have to stress about which child in the sea of children is yours. The owners gave us a plethora of information about what to bring before we visited (bring your own meat for sure!) so that we were well prepared for our stay. The person who visited in January 2014 who mentioned the doors not locking just didn't know how to lock the doors (lift up on the handle of the right-hand door while turning the lock - this is not uncommon). Also they have plenty of kitchenware (including two can openers...), and a working grill - all of which were there on our visit in 2013 as well. The fact that you provide your own toilet paper and soap is really not a big deal, in my opinion. I have recommended this vacation condo to many and will continue to do so in addition to visiting every couple of years with my family and friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us; it is truly Paradise.
We are located 1 mile from the airport on the beach about 11 miles north of Georgetown. We have spectacular views of the ocean and access to white sand beaches from our villa.
Exuma is a haven for fishing, snorkeling, boating, sight seeing and scuba diving. Some of the best bone fishing flats in the world are minutes from our resort.
We are located near a Greg Norman golf course and there are many tour guides for you to use to explore the islands and water as you desire
There are no fast food restaurants, beach vendors or big box departments store, just a beautiful island, beautiful water and beautiful people.
As we say in Exuma, 'There is nothing to do and no time to get it done.' Come enjoy an unspoiled part of the Caribbean.
