Jimmy Hill Townhome Rental Photos and Description

The astronauts looking down from space identified the Exumas in the Bahamas as having the most exquisite waters (a million shade of blue, aquamarine, greens, clear white) in the universe!

Rayann's Beach House @ Three Sisters' Rocks, located 5 minutes drive from the airport, and 15 minutes from George Town, the main town of Great Exuma Island, is a 2-story town house that has two x 2 bedrooms, 2 and a half bathrooms apartments. For each unit, the upper level houses 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Each bedroom has a private balcony. The master bedroom has a panoramic view of the sea. Downstairs is the kitchen area, a half bathroom, and an open area with a dining and a lounge area. A double French door leads to a private verandah with a breathtaking view of the ocean. There are ceiling fans in every room and central airconditioning for when the island breezes are not cool enough.

The Sandals Resort (formerly Four seasons)Greg Norman Golf Course and Marina can be reached in 8 minutes by car. Grocery stores, a health facility, and banks are found in George Town. Local restaurants and other places of interest can be found in the information booklet provided at the beach house.

Swimming with the pigs/feeding the sharks is a must do boat tour to the Exuma Cays!

About The Owner

I am a retired teacher/librarian. I grew up in a small town on this island, which is where I now live. I choose to live in Exuma because of the natural beauty, the peace and tranquillity

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2012

Why The Owner chose Exuma

This property has sentimental value for my family because it was passed down through the generations. The property can not be sold and maybe this is the reason why I can own a beach house.

What makes this townhome unique

The sea view from this property is breathtaking! You step out of the French doors right on to the beach!

Can't Wait to Return!!

  • 5 of 5

We can hardly wait to return to Rayann's!! That should tell you what we felt about this rental. It was immaculate and exactly as advertised. The owners, Isadora and Mildred, were very kind, communicative and quick to answer every question. Prior to our arrival, they helped us get a rental car at a discounted rate (from Sure and Shore rental). They also coached us through our concerns as a tropical storm was threatening just before our trip. Their sister, Annie, who met us upon arrival with fresh bread, homemade jams, and cold beverages in the fridge, was friendly and thorough in helping us get settled.

We felt the location of Rayann's was ideal. It is a little north of Georgetown, and being near the middle of the island makes access to just about everything very easy. And it is RIGHT ON the water!! You walk a few steps off the back deck and across the white powder-sand beach, and your toes are in the water.

There is a folder in the house with lots of good information and suggestions of places to visit. We recommend snorkelling with turtles at Hooper's Bay and walking out on the sandbar at Coco Plum Beach. Coco Plum and the Tropic of Cancer Beach are both stunning. We've never seen water so clear and beautiful.

If you are looking for a nice home on the water where you have the option of preparing your own meals and going at an easy, relaxing pace, you will not be disappointed at Rayann's.

All Time Favorite!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Rayann's in February 2016. We had both sides of the house, with 4 couples. My first impression was the absolute beauty of Exuma. Rayann's was perfect! Extremely clean, well maintained, with a spectacular view. The house had everything you could possibly want to make it comfortable, from quality towels to snorkel equipment. It was like arriving at our own private oasis. "The Sisters" are wonderful and reflect the overall attitude and demeanor of the island. Friendly, gracious, welcoming and helpful. This is truly an amazing place. We loved it and have already booked our trip for next year. Looking forward to spending another week in paradise next year. :)

So perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here...the view was even more spectacular in person!! . Mildred and Isadora were so welcoming and attended to our every need. The location was perfect for wherever we wanted to go - not too far from either end of the island. Everything you need is there at the house. They even recommended a great car rental place (Sure to Shore) that we had a great experience with. We never once saw anyone else in front of our house on the beach!!

The snorkeling in front of the beach was awesome. There is a small reef near to shore directly in front of the house. But the snorkeling near the rocks was amazing!!! Some of the best I've seen so far! Saw huge lobsters, fish every color of the rainbow, crabs, sea urchins, etc. I found the most beautiful conch shell I've ever seen (almost bigger than my head.)

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at Rayanns Beach House (Ann). Mildred and Isadora met us with big Bahamian hugs and a very warm welcome to this beautiful island. The house was spotless, and the view breathtaking...Just perfect! These lovely ladies even supplied beers and water in fridge, fresh warm bread and other goodies, a very kind gesture.

Without doubt, this was the best vacation rental we've ever stayed in, a real credit to Mildred and Isadora, can't wait to return!

One of my favorite places on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful rental just As the pictures show and in the best location in great exuma. Right on the beach and an incredible deal. Blue waters and powdery sand. Stayed here with 2 couples (4 ppl) and one side of the duplex was the perfect size. Owners were very kinda, prompt, and easy to communicate with. Paying for the rental upon arrival was a breeze. There was homemade bread and jams as well as beverages and a few beers when we arrived. Storage room had snorkel and fins as well as a picnics blanket and a few beach toys. We stayed here in February and I daily think about returning! Do not hesitate to book this rental. You cannot be disappointed. Truly a wonderful place on earth. Great exuma is a must see place because it does not disappoint in cannot possibly believe it until you see it for yourself! I cannot wait to return and this is exactly where I'll stay.

Wonderful relaxing time at Rayanns Villa

  • 5 of 5

The good reviews already said it all, but I would like to thank Isadora and Mildred for the amazing vacation we had in Exuma. Check in and check out was a breeze. All communications with the owners were timely, helpful and informative. They arranged for kayaks to be delivered to our villa at a very reasonable price. Snorkeling sets, a beach umbrella and a small cooler were provided, very handy for beach hopping. We rented a vehicle through Sure to Shore Rental as they were recommended by the owners, and again we had the best price and a very friendly service. All the beaches are beautiful, clear turquoise waters and powdery white sand, trully a paradise! The villa is a short drive from the airport and well located to explore the island. Do not hesitate to book at Rayanns for a wonderful stress free vacation!
