Coconut Cottage is a beautifully furnished, recently built ocean view cottage with wrap-round porch, situated at a small, private development known as 'The Cays' at Hermitage Bay, Great Exuma Island. There is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and laundry area. There are three bedrooms, two bedrooms with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms plus a third full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and french doors leading out onto the porch. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the third has a full sized bed. All bed and bath linens are provided, including beach towels
The house is fully airconditioned throughout, plus high ceilings and ceiling fans in all rooms.
The beach and pool area are a 25 yard walk down a path, and feature a cabana with an 'honour bar', barbeque/picnic area, outside shower and rest rooms. Although it is a communal pool, all but two of the other properties are owned by absentee owners, so most of the time one has the pool and pool area to oneself. There are also fantastic, long, deserted white sand beaches just a few minutes drive away.
We are situated literally about half way between the airport and the town of George Town. There is a full supermarket in George Town which is about 10 minutes drive, or there is a small grocery store and liquor store about 5 minutes away.
There are several first class restaurants within a short drive, and one excellent one right next door. You can walk there.
One of the biggest attractions Exuma has to offer is the bonefishing. This really is bonefishermen's paradise, and there are several experienced bonefish guides. Our housekeeper/concierge can help you with making bookings. The scuba diving is also a big attraction and is absolutely spectacular.
Concierge service is available upon request, and can include airport pick-up and catering if required.
My husband and I live in Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas. WE have always enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the 'out islands', and built Coconut Cottage as a week-end escape.
