My family and I live on Long Island in New York and get to Exuma as often as possible.

Kimberley M. Barnes purchased this house in 2005

My parents had been traveling to Exuma since the early 1970s and I vacationed there very often as a child and young adult.

If you go to Exuma, you want to be on the water (there is no sense traveling there and not having immediate, regular beach access). That is the best part of Calypso, it is beach front, and the beach is quiet, nearly secluded, which is merely steps out the back door. That beach, and the 16 foot square deck perched about 20 feet above the ocean the coral bluff, are the perfect way to spend a day or a week on Exuma.

Great Home! Very large with a total of 5 bedrooms. We had a great time! The home is nicely equipped with all the comforts of home, including a well stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture inside and outside, and they even supply beach towels (many beach homes require renters to bring their own.)

But the most amazing part of this home is the beach! When we walked into the living area and saw the three sets of glass doors we were overtaken by the most amazing view we've ever seen? Paradise! The water is that gorgeous Caribbean blue color. The photos do not do this beach justice!

The hosts, Kim and Leo are very personable and professional. It's apparent that they have anticipated all of your needs while you are renting their home. They also have a hard working, dedicated staff to take care of anything that happens while you are there. They'll also serve as your tour guide and they'll even prepare you a wonderful meal! I would not hesitate to rent this home again.

We had a very pleasant stay at your Calypso Beach House and exploring your beautiful Island was a great joy. Thanks for your Guest Info Packet, it helped a lot to figure out what to visit on our, unfortunately, too short stay!

I just wanted to write and let you know that we had a really phenomenal week at Calypso house and we didn't want to leave! Thank you for all your recommendations. We loved Sand Dollar Beach and went there twice. Catch a Fire was a great time too. We hired Four Cs and Captain Andrew took us out for the day and we had a fabulous day on the water. When we returned home, our friends saw the pictures and heard about our experience and all want to go now too! So I wouldn't be surprised if you get some referrals too.

We had an excellent time! Best vacation ever. The kids really enjoyed the beach. I have already suggested your house to 2 of my friends. They should get in touch with you soon. By the way, Pat [of Exuma Water Tours] was really amazing with us and the kids.
