Aqua Villa's House on the Hill has a spectacular, secluded, and quiet location, with glorious 180 degree ocean views on a slight hillside. Sit on the private deck and enjoy the breeze, watch sunrise and sunset. Relish the tranquility- all you can hear is the sound of the sea and the wind. Starry nights are spectacular, you may even see shooting stars.
House on the Hill is 1200 sq feet, has Master bedroom with King size bed, Guest room with queen size bed and kids room with full and single beds. 2 full Bathrooms and outdoor shower. A large comfortable great room with open kitchen and vaulted wooden ceilings. Barbecue on the deck. It is fully air- conditioned. All rooms have a great view of the Ocean. Washer and Dryer. WIFI Internet. We can arrange private chef, massage, and boat tours.
We just spent four nights at this place and I left wishing I had planned to stay longer. The house is perfectly kept, equipped with A/C, Wi-FI and all the kitchenware you need, has good ventilation -since it's above the tree line- and has an absolutely gorgeous view which left us stunned as we were welcomed in. A few yards away is the owner's waterfront vacation home, which has a huge dock and a small private beach that we highly enjoyed, as that house was alone. We were allowed to use a paddle-board and a kayak for an additional fee. The experience though would have been considerably different had we not been allowed to use the waterfront access. In this case, I imagine you'd have to plan to spend more time out of the house.
Worth mentioning that Mr Newman - manager- behaved very well and made sure we were picked up in time and brought up to the house. Kay, who keeps the house, was also very nice and showed us a bit around.
A few tips for your trip:
- There's beautiful beaches to visit and if your objective is to visit them, bring your equipment: a good umbrella & chairs. You could even use the umbrella in the house's private beach.
- The place is about a mile and a half from the main artery, connected by a dirt road. I would highly recommend you rent a car, unless your objective is to remain in the house for most of your stay.
- Try bringing some food along. Grocery stores are small, expensive and not stocked as you'd wish. I was told you can bring meats from the US, but not vegetables nor fruits. Maybe you can do groceries in Nassau and fill a cooler? I saw a few locals flying with coolers.
- Bring plenty of cash- I withdrew cash in Exuma and fees are outrageous.
- Be aware Exuma is not Nassau nor Cancun. There are no big hotels, no discos and restaurant variety is not extensive. This is a laid back experience to enjoy nature and nice beaches.
- The house in is the south side of the island, which is like the back country of Florida: very wild and lonely. Worth exploring if you're curious and find the means to but don't go at it alone!
We just got back from staying a week at this lovely vacation home. The house was very clean! Awesome views and access to a nice beach/dock! I recommend renting a car to get around the island! Kay was so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed! I already have friends asking for the information to this home! I will be coming back! Thank you so much Eric for letting us stay at your beautiful house!
First of all, I would like to thank Eric for allowing us to stay in his wonderful home on Exuma. It is obvious that this is not just a rental but his personal vacation home as well and the home is appointed as such.
The best things: The view, the amazing property he is building down the hill with a dock and private beach for use by both homes, the bed, the stars. A vacation can be ruined for me by a bad bed and all of the beds in this house are comfortable but the master is VERY comfortable. The porch offers an amazing view. The new home that is being built and should be ready for rent in about a month is SPECTACULAR! The breezes are amazing on that porch and the dock and beach outside it's doors is absolutely perfect. The stars are really not Eric's doing so I can't give him credit but OMG!
A few tips if you are staying here for the 1st time: 1. Snorkel the dock and at least the area up and down the coast there at least a few hundred feet. We saw a ton of great fish and creatures. Lots of upside-down Jellyfish. 2. Stop at Prime Island Meats and Deli and get some of their tuna salad and chicken salad. Both are fabulous and we ate them for at least one meal every day! They will even have everything ready for you to pick up on your way in from the airport if you contact them in advance. firstname.lastname@example.org. 3. Rent a boat from Minns in Georgetown and snorkel the Blue Hole and the reef off of Foul Cay. DONT KICK UP THE REEF THOUGH! It is spectacular and we saw at least 5 turtles there. 4. Chat and Chill is a given.
This property, Eric and Kay (site manager) were wonderful and it was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. I hope you all love it as much as we did!
Great vacation home. Very comfortable and clean. Great views. We all loved and are planning our next stay.
The house was the cleanest and best layout we have stayed at while on Exuma. It was in a great location and had a very nice beach access. The proximity to the airport flats was awesome and the bonefishing, while challenging, was great. We saw hundreds of fish every day and managed to catch a few. Town was close by and the outdoor lighting and elevated balcony made us feel very safe. The property caretaker and owner was easy to contact and the home is filled with nice amenities. We will stay there again.
We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into this beautiful home. It was just me and my husband, but the floor plan would be wonderful for a large family. The decor, which is important to me, is beautiful. I love the hard wood floors and the wooden ceiling in the family room. The kitchen had all the items necessary to cook meals if that is your desire. Beds were comfy! The view from the back deck is so pretty, perfect to watch sunsets! I love the fact that it was just a few miles from George Town. The owner has a book that gives you all the information needed to make your stay comfortable including restaurant, fishing, boating,etc. ideas. We will definitely be back to this wonderful home!
