About Kathy and Fred Helfrick

Our family made annual escapes from the frozen north for several years and we now make the beautiful island of Great Exuma our regular destination. Settling in and enjoying the simple life couldn't be easier. Even as they've grown and are making the trip by themselves, our kids spend hours beachcombing as the tide reveals it's treasures. Traveling with friends has been made easy as our villa easily accommodates all of us. Room to relax, nature's beauty to enjoy and time to take it all in is why we love it. We hope you will too!

Kathy and Fred Helfrick purchased this villa in 2005

Why Kathy and Fred Helfrick chose Exuma

Our family made many trips to all inclusive sunny locations and took advantage of all they had to offer. Our one complaint was always the crowds of people and schedules to adhere to- we wanted to leave all of that at home. Our first trip to Exuma took us back in time and into the holiday postcard beaches, unspoiled and pristine. When we found a spot that offered all the comforts we enjoy as well as easy access to beaches and a slower way of life we couldn't help but jump in.

What makes this villa unique

Location - prime beachfront location within the resort and central on the island for amenities and touring. Villa 30 is especially comfortable as it is set up as our holiday home with all the comforts and conveniences.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just never tire of the beauty and Villa 30 is very well supplied and and great place on the beach for us to relax. We always meet interesting people and the locals are truly wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

A Beautiful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at villa 30 was simply amazing. We felt right at home due to the hospitality of the owners (Kathy and Fred) and the ocean views were breathtaking! We would return in a heartbeat!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Exuma. The villa was perfect for our needs. It is well furnished and close to several good restaurants. The shuttle service to town was a nice extra. We couldn't get enough of Jolly Hall beach...truly a gem of the island. We are already thinking ahead to our next trip.

Gotta love it!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable fully equipped one bedroom two bathroom unit fronting Elizabeth Harbour - could sit on the deck and view the bay, walk 15 steps and go for a swim, walk 5 minutes to beautiful Jolly Hall Beach or just go use the resort pool and kayaks - what a choice. Although part of the resort it was quite private. Unit was clean, had good air-conditioning and the start up kit provided by the owners was very generous and excellent. The location of the unit is very good, about 10mins drive from Georgetown and good food choices close by. We enjoyed it ....

Perfect, as always

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this villa and it was perfect, as always. Everything you need is there, including snorkeling gear, a fully stocked kitchen, coolers, beach towels and the beach right outside your door. Favorite bonus is the washer/dryer. It allows you to pack light. The villa is clean and more than enough room for two people. Taxis on the island are expensive. We always rent both a jeep (from the airport) and a boat (from Minn's) and I highly recommend both. There is so much of the island to explore and this is the best way to be sure to see as much as you can. The boat allows you to hit every beach in the harbor (always empty, you'll have the whole beach to yourselves) and to jump in and snorkel at your leisure. However, if you don't get the boat there is Ernie's water taxi and if you don't get the jeep, there is the free shuttle available right from Palm Bay and walkable beaches and restaurants. Our favorite places to eat, hands down, are Catch a Fire for dinner and Santana's for lunch. Groceries are expensive, so my travelers tip as someone who is a repeat visitor, is to pack a check-in suitcase full of cereal, protein bars, pringles, snack foods etc... and bring a weeks worth of Tide pods with you for the washer, you can easily save yourself over $100 by doing so. Don't hesitate to rent this villa ~ it really is perfect.
