We stayed in this AMAZING home for our second family vacation in beautiful Exuma. We had visited the Tropic of Cancer beach during our first Exuma vacation 3 years ago and we thought it was the most beautiful beach we had ever walked on. The house was perfect for our family of 10. It was clean and cool and nicely decorated. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The dining table is big enough for everyone to eat and perfect for card games too. The rooms are spacious and all have their own bathrooms. The deck was perfect for hanging out and the view every morning will take your breath away. We felt like we had our own private little piece of paradise. Just the beach and us! We explored the beach, water and rocks just a short walk to the right and to the left. We kayaked to the small island just a short distance from the house. We loved the big brown butterflies, lizards and tiny hermit crabs that greeted us every morning on the back porch. The house keeper, Wade was wonderful. I can not say enough about how nice it was to have him for questions and suggestions. Santanas and Tropic Breeze are just a short drive down the beach for some of the best food and company you can find on the island! I'm not kidding! We LOVE these 2 restaurants! Chat n Chill is a must on Sunday. Just take the short boat ride "Elvis Water Taxi" from the Georgetown marina for $12 per person round trip. Plan to stay for the day! So much fun! Don't miss Coco Plum Beach. It's the only sandbar you can reach without a boat. It is unbelievable! You will feel like you are walking on water I promise!

Our trip would not be complete without spending a day with Ray and Justin at Exuma Water Sports. Swimming pigs, grape eating iguanas, gentle nurse sharks and amazing snorkeling experiences are just some of the things you will talk about forever. Look them up and schedule a tour before you get to Exuma. We loved our stay in this beautiful island home and enjoyed exploring Exuma! Already dreaming about returning!

Hint: Order Avon's Skin So Soft from Amazon before you come to Exuma. The mosquitos are crazy! Even the locals recommend Skin So Soft. We tested it and IT WORKS!

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Fantastic.

Beautiful home, cute and comfy cottage. Amazing views and vistas from enormous balcony.

Creamy white sand that never gets hot. Mile long beach is a fabulous walk for me.

Great snorkeling off the many close Cays. The cave on Pelican Cay is really cool.

Daughters loved it here. Neat places near by to explore.

Private, quite, tranquil, calming - priceless...

Nicest beach house I have ever stayed at ... will truly miss this place.

Girls are already asking when we can come back.

Having a car helped. All of the pictures are accurate. Owners were great.

Great place to unplug, unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and homey. The premises was just as pictured and actually rooms were surprisingly larger than they appear in the pictures. The owner was fair and accomodating.

The house is well maintained and there are activities available in town such as scuba excursions and leisure boat rentals.

The house and cottage are relatively remote so you will need a car or, you can walk up the road to Santana's for an impromptu drink and bite to eat!

Visit Peace and Plenty bar or Two Turtles for after dinner drinks and dancing al fresco.

I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends looking for a low key, relaxing beach vacation. A great place to unplug and fall off the grid!

We have stayed at this amazing home for tthe las

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this amazing home for the last four years always in April. The home has all that you could possibly ask for. The breath taking view is spectacular and beautiful blue colors of the water are mesmerizing. You can walk the beach for hours and feel the peacefulness of the Island. Santana"s is a must just a short distance from the house. You will enjoy the Bahamians at their best. It was a pleasure to work with the owners as they are very accommodating. We highly recommend this home for a family get a way.

Stunning beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

This home is located right on the beautiful and peaceful Tropic of Cancer beach. It's the most amazing beach I've ever seen. The house has a private walk to the beach which is only steps away. Every room has breathtaking views of the clear blue waters.

It was extremely clean and has everything you would need for a comfortable and fun vacation. We kayaked to a near by cave and played a family game of volleyball right on the beach in front of the house.

Santana's is a great place to grab drinks and local food. It's also located right on the beach with amazing views and it's just down the road.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway on the beach!

Car: recommended

In Little Exuma, The Lignum Vitae Property sits on the beautiful crescent beach, Tropic of Cancer. Probably the most gorgeous beach in the Exumas, it is frequented by modeling agencies and magazines in search of pristine, isolated, natural settings.
