About Jacquie Phillips
Jacquie and Sandra Phillips enjoying a mango daquiri on the deck of Santana's. A five minute drive from their cottage tranquility. Jacquie and Sandra were both born in Jamaica and have enjoyed island living for decades. After moving away 20 years ago they wanted to connect back with their island roots. Tranquility offers a taste of an unspoiled lifestyle.
Jacquie Phillips purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Jacquie Phillips chose Exuma
A direct flight from Atlanta and Toronto and a hop over from Florida makes Exuma easily accessible. The cottage is a two minute walk from the pristine Tropic of Cancer Beach. A slice of Heaven, here on earth.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage offers a wrap around deck and nine sets of sliding glass doors which gives a panoramic view from every room.

Absolutely wonderful property. Great location; very short walk to a fabulous beach (you can see some ocean from the porch), neighborhood felt safe. Kayaks were a lot of fun and there was a lot of ocean life to see snorkeling out front. Property manager was easy and pleasant to deal with and very prompt to reply. Five gallon water dispenser came in very handy! We would definitely stay here again.
The most Beautiful beach in the Bahamas! Tropic of Cancer.
Great access to the beach!
This was a very quaint beach cottage that we definitely enjoyed. The owners were VERY GOOD about communications and told us the washing machine was not working in advance and also let us know that they could have someone take care of our laundry for free if necessary. I even had to call because internet access did not allow for me to see the lockbox code when I arrived and they answered on the first call. Tropic of Cancer Beach is only a two minute walk and can be seen from the deck. The property itself was recently updated and it looked great. The two bedrooms and three beds worked out perfectly for our family of four. The only reason that it was not five stars was the kitchen does not have a true oven and stovetop. There is a two burner hotplate and a countertop oven along with a small gas grill on the deck which worked out for us but it is something that others might have issues with. We would definitely stay in this home again.
Wonderful house off the beaten path
A lovely two minute walk from Tropic of Cancer beach, this house is perfect for anyone who wants a quieter vacation away from some of the more bustling parts of Great Exuma. While it's a bit far to get to some amenities (probably a 30 minute drive to get to some of the convenience stores/groceries), the trade off is that you get to walk to one of the best and quietest beaches on the island. Jacquie and Sandra were super communicative and helpful when we needed them as well. Would highly recommend!
