George Town Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Neatly tucked on one of the most beautiful and extensive beaches in Exuma, our quaint cottage is the perfect “get away from it all” retreat. Conveniently located roughly three miles east of Exuma International airport and some four miles from George Town, the house lies totally secluded and intimate. The cottage is approximately 1000 square feet with a full wrap around covered deck usable in any weather. We have totally renovated and provide everything we would want in the story book perfect beach cottage. We have chosen colors and furnishings which we feel give our cottage Bahamian style island charm. The theme of Casuarina House is peace, serenity, and privacy. We are not posh nor elegant but we do provide all the amenities needed for a beautiful unforgettable vacation . This has been attested to over and over as shown by the glowing happy comments in our guest book by over 60 satisfied visitors.

So put your feet up, grab a book, and sit on the deck to enjoy the sounds of the waves.

The wrap around veranda allows you to enjoy the fabulous scenery and turquoise waters regardless of weather. There is enjoyment for persons of all ages. The beach is exceptional for young children and for long walks. The white, sandy beach is approximately 3 miles long and for the most part deserted.

Solitude in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from 10 WONDERFUL days at Casuarina House. Ashley makes it so easy to rent this beautiful villa - very friendly and responsive. The Villa is exceptionally clean and well appointed - we could not have asked for a better vacation home. Comfortable beds, great water pressure, beach chairs and plenty of towels, good wifi and the washer & dryer was nice to have. The wrap around porch allows you to simply relax and stare at the tranquil water. We spent a lot of time on the covered porch - even if a rain shower was passing by. The Beach is breathtaking and nearly private - we only saw a handful of people and they were just walking by. The water is so calm (we took floats) and so many beautiful shades of blue - absolutely mesmerizing! The Beach gets great sun all day long! We have stayed at many villas in the Caribbean and this is hands down, our favorite!!! You cannot beat the location and the incredible view - I was speechless when we arrived. I strongly suggest renting a car (Thompson's car rental) so you can explore the Island. However, it is tempting to just spend all the time at the house & beach relaxing and doing nothing - isn't that what a vacation is all about... Must do's: Santana's in Little Exuma (worth the drive), Big D's for the BEST conch salad on the Island, all day Boat Trip (we used Coastline), Daytrip to Stocking Island - Chat n' Chill for Lunch, and Shirley's at the Fish Fry. The Exuma Market is a great grocery store (huge selection of products) with a liquor store right next door. We cooked in several nights. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a great meal. Great selection of meat and side dishes at Prime Island Meats too. Thank you to Ashley for sharing this delightful villa with us for 10 days....I am already looking at when we can return. I wish I was back there now! This private, quiet and peaceful villa truly allows you to relax and unwind - it's a gem in paradise!

Easiest, most relaxing vacation ever. Ashley made booking this beautiful rental a breeze - we spent a week, mostly at the completely deserted beach right in front of the house. You definitely will want to rent a car to explore the Island - Tropic of Cancer beach is worth the trip down to Little Exuma and the public beach by Sandals was also amazing - the water was as calm and blue as a swimming pool. Don't miss the Fish Fry - Charlie's is great - and Big D's for conch salad. The house was well stocked and very comfortable - especially loved the wrap around veranda to sit and read and listen to the ocean. Already thinking about returning to this idyllic spot!!

Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week. Had the beach all to ourselves with the exception of 1 day and only ran the A/C one night. Perfect for a couple or a small family. Everything you need is at hand. Rent a car, take an excursion or two and take in the out islands- or simply hang at the house. You will leave trying to figure out a way to come back ... or stay!

A quiet paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 awesome days at the Casurina house this winter. We loved the private location and gorgeous beach and view from the wrap around porch. I think we saw about one person a day on the beach in front of us and they were just walking or jogging by. The blue water, white, soft sand and clear bottom are great for swimming, heck, you can even skinny dip, there is no one around! Location is great, close to the airport and also to Georgetown. This is not a party island so if you are looking for a wild time, don't come here, go elsewhere so we can keep the island peaceful and uncrowded :)

We rented a car so we could explore, also rented a boat for a day from Minns and cruised around the harbor. There are some excursions to do but you can also just hang out and enjoy the solitude.

The house is comfortably appointed, we did a lot of cooking ( great fresh meat and seafood at the deli down the road), beach chairs, towels and a lot of just sitting on the porch chairs looking at the water. Ashley is also great to work with.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 children (ages 11, 12, 19) plus a friend (age 19) spent 12 days at Casuarina House. The pics on VRBO of the beach just don't do it justice! We were all amazed at how perfect the beach was... EVERY DAY! The water is like a neon turquoise with sand incredibly soft. On the days with no wind, it looked like an infinity pool! We brought floats with us and used them every day. Unlike other reviews, we did have people everyday on either side of the property line at beach. Usually around 10 a day.. Maybe the time of year? Still not "crowded" by any means. The pics of the house are very accurate. Nice and accommodating. Everything we needed was provided other than beach towels. The beds and furniture are comfortable. AC works well too! When wind is down and sun beginning to set, the mosquitoes come out, big time! Bring bug spray! (We left a bottle there). We left details in the guest book of where to shop and which tours we took. Highly recommend Captain Jerry tours! We rented a car from Thompson's and explored every part of Great and Little Exuma. Definitely get a rental! If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with, in my opinion, the very best beach on Great Exuma, then this is the place! We are already planning our return!

My husband and I spent 10 wonderful days here to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was the most peaceful, relaxing vacation we have ever had. The house is not fancy, but it is clean and well cared for. We had everything we needed to eat in if we chose to. The view from the porch is INCREDIBLE! We were alone on the beach for most of our stay. We rented a car as you really need one to get around the island. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all. Ashley was great to deal with and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We will definitely return!
