About Rick and Jodi Hughes
We are a family of 5 from Chicago and LOVE our piece of paradise and hope you will also.
Rick and Jodi Hughes purchased this House in 2017
Why Rick and Jodi Hughes chose George Town
Blue Hues offers one of the "best locations" on the Island and is close to everything the island has to offer.We are tucked away in a very private secluded community off the main road away from traffic noise.The home and guest cottage are on a slightly elevated hill that offers fantastic water views and ocean breezes.The beach is only steps from the home and offers very calm waters ideal for children.We are close to Prime Island Meats, Smittys Convenient Store and a short drive to Georgetown and only 15 minutes from the Airport. *Both the Main House and Guest House are supplied with automatic back up generator in the event of any power outage.
What makes this House unique
A true gem with over an acre of native gardens and stonework a slight elevation for amazing views and a rarely occupied calm beach with a pool in the middle.Very private and quiet except for the sounds of the ocean waves and soft Island breezes...PARADISE!

Best Beach- looks like a movie setting
I have been traveling the Caribbean- Atlantic like Bahamas and Hawai’i.
I AM A BEACH SNOB.
This is the best beach I have ever stayed on in 33 years of traveling and searching for THIS BEACH. A short walk down the hill (oh the hill that allows views from all the way around with expansive ocean views. The water changes all of the colors of turquoise, blue, and teal that you can possibly imagine.
The house- lovely, very well equipped. A great grocery store 1.5 miles away that has deli prime meats and cheeses. Another half mile to another grocery store and liquor store. I have been to Great Exuma 7 times now. I will only stay at THIS house. The owners are amazing and incredibly well like in the neighborhood. They give back to the community and are truly loved. Best check in experience ever, again I do a lot of house renting. I can’t say enough good things. Best rental ever and I know it can’t be beat.
Thanks for taking the time for a review and letting us know how much you enjoyed our place and the island! We really appreciate it.

We could not have asked for anything better! Our Christmas gift to our 2 children and their spouses was a trip to Exuma. So, I went in search of a place to stay and found Blue Hues. Not knowing anything about the Exumas I was able to talk with the owner Rick a couple of times before making the decision - he was SO informative. When we arrived at the house it felt familiar - Blue Hues is exactly as it appears in the photos online, but to be there and experience the beauty is a must! The house had everything we needed. I did have questions about things we should bring or what would be available at the local markets and Rick was very helpful. We also took his recommendations and booked a trip with Sugar Adventure Tours...SO worth it, and rented a boat for one day at Minn's and had a blast over at Chat n Chill and hanging on the sand bars at Sand Dollar Key. Chef Gavin cooked dinner one night for us - the best!
I cannot say enough about this place. The home is lovely, clean and felt like our private resort. The people in The Exumas are so friendly. The ocean & beaches are so beautiful...the most beautiful place we've ever been!! We can't wait to go back!
Lanae,I'm so glad you all enjoyed the place and want to thank you for the detailed review about our Island,the people and the services you enjoyed....everyone including us really appreciate it!
Thank you for joining us!

Awesome property and spectacular views of Old Hoopers Bay. This is perfect for families.
Rick was awesome in planning our arrival and helped with many details. He went above and beyond what I would say normal homeowners would provide. The home was immaculate and exceeded our expectations. Amazing views and the private beach was special form our family. Thank you Rick and Jodi for sharing your home.
Mike,Thanks for the kind words and taking time for a review.Our boss lady Michelle really takes pride in her job and appreciates when guests take notice of her attention to detail.
All the best to you and your family.

Amazing property! Best kept secret on the island!
Wow! Just wow!
From our first communication with Rick, this family vacation was all that we hoped it would be. Rick shared island tips with us so that prior to arriving, we already had reservations for island adventures. He also emailed step by step directions to getting to Blue Hues from the airport (maybe 10 minutes tops). A car rental is a must, BTW. While there are taxis, the only way to explore the island is with your own car.
Once you make the final turn off of the private driveway in Old Hoopers Bay, your eyes see the beautiful beach and crystal clear water.
The house is everything and more! The view from the den/great room looks out over the water. Such tranquility! The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. There is no problem staying cool with the AC and the overhead fans. The TVs had Netflix so the children could watch their shows at night.
It is a short walk to your own private beach or you can relax by the pool (a pool was a must when we were researching homes).
The kitchen is perfect for preparing meals. We went to Exuma Market (10 minutes away in George Town) on the first day and filled up the fridge. We stopped at Smitty's for adult beverages (impressive wine selection for islanders) and then Prime Island Meats where Ron has a great selection of deli meats, chicken salad, steaks (all priced comparable to USA).
Blue Hues is ideally located almost in the middle of Greater Exuma. From there, it is about a 30-40 minute drive up to the government dock to take the boat tour to see the famous swimming pigs at Musha Cay, swim with the sharks at Compass Cay and explore the grottos and see the iguanas.
Coco Plum Beach, where the iconic swings in the surf are the only remnants from the infamous Fyre Festival, is near the northern end as well. To the south, a similar drive puts you at the Tropic of Cancer beach (just beautiful), Santanna's Bar and grill and the must stop destination of Momma's where Momma herself makes rum cake and banana bread daily. She is a delight and she will take pictures with you and give advice. We will always include her on future trips.
The Famous Chat-n-Chill bar and grill is a short boat ride across the harbor to Stocking Island from the dock in George Town. My children loved the gear from the gift shop to bring back home.
This family vacation was perfect. Throughout, Rick was always easily reachable. Blue Hues will be our go to vacation house in Exuma and it should be yours, too!
Gordon/Molly .. Thank you so much for taking the time for such a thorough review of our place and all the must do things on Island .... we and our future guests appreciate it :) All the best ! Rick and Jodi
Absolutely stunning & breathtaking!!
This is by far the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. Everything about this home, the owner & the experience is perfection. Rick is so generous, helpful and kind and will have as little or as much contact as you want. The property is by far one of the most beautiful on the island. The landscaping is lush and beautiful & Amos is amazing. The beach is your own piece of heaven. They have literally thought of everything and you should not need a thing while here. We brought our 10 month old and they even had a Pack & Play & a high chair, which was so helpful. The air conditioner and fans work wonderfully, & the water pressure is great. It felt like home to us (sadly it’s not) and we were sad to leave. We are already planning our next visit! We have traveled to allot of islands in the Caribbean etc...and this has been our favorite place yet!!! I highly suggest you rent a car from the airport and explore this beautiful island! Every person we encountered here is wonderful and it’s a VERY safe island. They are very accommodating and family friendly. If you don’t stay here you are missing out on what will be your best vacation stay ever. Thank you again Rick & Jodi for sharing your exquisite vacation home with our little family of 3, we have been touched and blessed by your place. We will be back soon!!! Cheers!
Stephani,I'm so glad you all enjoyed our home and Island! Amos is our Gardner guru ;) Hope to hear from you again.. It was a pleasure!
