Amazing blue-green water, soft white sand, and great bonefishing

Had a fabulous week.
While the villa is new, beautiful, spacious, comfortable and clean, with everything you need, the star attraction is the natural outdoors. The water is an incredible blue-green, and easily accessible. The entire Elizabeth Harbour is sheltered and calm, which makes boating and exploring relatively easy. We rented a boat with a twin V hull and an outboard motor from nearby Mims Watersports, and explored the harbour and Stocking Island. Enjoyed walking deserted beaches and sandbars with no footprints other than our own. The Chat-and-Chill on Stocking Island is a fun place to drink and play volleyball with the numerous "boat people" from all over the world who anchor nearby for months on end.
Went flyfishing with a guide (exumabonefish.com) for bonefish, all day fishing from a flats boat or walking the enormous shallow, sandy flats, hunting the elusive bonefish. $400 for 2 fishermen, all day. Very challenging, but great fun!
Played on nice tennis courts at the entrance to the villas, and even better was to jump in the cool infinity pool at the edge of the bay to cool off.
The restaurant at the marina, less than a three minute walk from the villa, was quiet and never crowded for dinner, but had an amazing setting right on the water, with candlelight and moonlight, and served surprisingly excellent meals. Our waiter, Snake, was friendly and memorable. It was the best food we had in Exuma, but it was also fun to explore the local places in George Town, and eat fresh conch and fish, and fried plantains. The locals were very friendly and we were welcomed everywhere we wandered. With no panhandeling.
Highly recommended for a relaxing but active getaway.
