Scott McMullen purchased this villa in 1998
We chose this island because of its small town atmosphere with only 2,000 residents; its pristine gin clear waters that are perfect for first time boaters; its laid back atmosphere; and its warm, tropical climate that is consistently warmer than Nassau or Florida.
We chose this property because it has the oldest grove of coconut trees on the Island, more than 70 years old; and because the Villas sit directly on a white sand beach with no public access.
Hammocks are the main order of the day; with relaxing beach time a close second. Three independent wi-fi systems, Cable TV, and a 10 passenger boat are included. Daily concierge services ensure that you take full advantage of all that the Island has to offer. Private chefs are available to add to the local tropical experience.
Wonderful private beach, beautiful sand and crystal clear blue water, Scott and his crew took such good care of myself and family from island visit to sailing to the best meals and service you could ask for. We will be back.
The house is absolutely gorgeous, the view is pure paradise, Scott and Karla are the best, very acomodating, so commuted to guest satisfaction, they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoy our stay. Looking forward to come back!!!
We loved the house and the location. Exuma is so laid back. Got to know some locals, travelled around the island and the seas. The house is perfect - despite the endless sunshine we abandoned the A/C and went old school with fans and the ample verandahs for cooling. So many places to sit and read, watch the sea, call to the kids to come in from the waves for food.
The housekeeper did a great job and the only slight maintenance issue was resolved straight away.
We enjoyed boat trips, scuba diving and a bit of local history (fascinating stuff on slave revolutions and a very traditional life until quite recently). It was easy to buy food to cook or take away. We didn't try any restaurants in the end but only because I couldn't persuade my teenagers to leave the perfectly equipped house (everything we needed from snorkel masks and inflatables to monopoly and jigsaws... and that rare thing in a holiday home, an ample supply of glasses, crockery and cutlery). Highly recommended
Words alone can not describe it, Our entire family agreed is the best vacation we have ever experienced, attention to details by both Scott and Karla was excellent, beautiful settings all around, This place is turn key with plenty of activities for both adults and children, I highly recommended, I will be delighted to return in the near future.
The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming upon our arrival! The house was fully stocked with a variety of food, snacks, and drinks. The amount of equipment (Hobie, SUP Boards, kayaks, etc) available to make our trip more enjoyable was fantastic! Food, for the most part, was on point. Would have liked some healthier choices at some parts, but overall enjoyed. Staff was friendly, sometimes a little too, but overall made our experience very enjoyable. The location of the house is the best on the island! Truly. Wouldn't have wanted to stay at the Bahamas any other way. Thank you for a wonderful stay, Scott!
The house is located ideally on the beach, with crystal clear waters right on the backyard. The house itself is very homey, and the chef's cooking is delicious. Overall, it was a fantastic and very relaxing week.
The property was great for our family of 15. Scott and Karla were gracious and fun. We used a cook for almost all days and found this made our trip truly relaxing. The food was great.
Children loved swimming pigs and swimming with the sharks. Wonderful vacation!

Bougainvillea House is located on the pristine, untouched, and untraveled beach of Hoopers Bay; and it is unlikely that you will see anyone on the beach in front of the house during your stay.
The Villa is five minutes from George Town Airport; which features daily International Jet service from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Toronto, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. Five minutes away on the only road on the island is Smittys Groceries and Liquor store.
