Overview

Bahamas House Rental Photos and Description

2 dbl bedrooms, 1 bath/shower rm 1 x lounge/diner, 1 x Kitchen and Wi-Fi

3.5 miles from George Town, off the beaten track on the South, lee side, of the island facing the sun all day long. The water is only 5 feet deep for 1.5 miles (yes, one and a half miles) to the outer cays, at high tide, and ankle deep at low tide. You've never experience this magic until you visited and have walked out to the cays into the sea and looked back at the island. You can spend your days without seeing another soul in the 1 acre property and indulge in the beauty of the view, be it cooling off in the sea, barbecuing on the decking, or lying in the hammock in the shade with a cocktail.

Why Michael Druitt chose Bahamas

This is our family holiday home in the sun. We rent the house when not visiting the island, as the house is completely separated between the upper and lower levels and both self contained. We rent out the upstairs for couples as Seabreeze Point is on a secluded plot of land with no direct neighbour, so seclusion is guaranteed during your vacation.

Paradise from your own private deck!

  • 4 of 5

If your looking for fantastic ocean views, gorgeous sunsets and sunrises and spectacular star shows right from your private deck along with easy access to the water for swimming and floating at high tide and walking the sand bars at low tide, this is the place for you. The house itself is a secluded, laid back, bare bones beach house without a lot of amenities but it feels like your living on your own private island. We found it clean and comfortable but not luxurious.

In addition to its secluded location, it is relatively close to the 2 best beaches (Tropic of Cancer and Forbes Hill) and 2 of the best restaurants (Santana's and Tropic Breeze) on Little Exuma. When visiting Santana's, Mom's Bakery right next door and the little yellow conch fritter shack across the road are a must for homemade Bahamian treats and some of the best conch fritters on the island. You're also only 3 1/2 miles from Georgetown if you feel the need for a "little" civilization.

Freddie, the caretaker was very responsive to our needs and added to the pleasure of our visit. He was a great source of information about the island. He was able to get us grouper (which he filleted for us) and fresh lobster tails at a very reasonable price and gave us instructions on how to cook on the outdoor wood burning grill.

We very much enjoyed our visit and hope to return.

We LOVE this house! Thank you Michael!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for our honeymoon and LOVED it so much! It has the most incredible view, the water is warm and the most beautiful shade of turquoise blue with white sand. Just breathtakingly beautiful. There is a hammock out front that my husband relaxed in everyday - he said he didn't even want to leave because we were already here - in paradise. It is our favorite place to stay and to visit. We would like to make this an annual vacation and hope that Michael will welcome us again in his beautiful home. We had very comfortable, clean beds and an open kitchen with ocean views. My cell phone worked fine and I was able to work remotely for the brief periods of time that I needed to. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. It's beautiful and the location is the best around! Enjoy.

Beautiful place, but not the house...

  • 2 of 5

We were at seabreeze point in February 2012. Just arrived we entered the apartment on the ground floor and found quite a dead rat on the floor. We climb to the first floor where there are our rooms. The house was dirty and smelled stuffy, the kitchen was in poor condition totally encrusted with limescale, dirty dishes, shower was completely encrusted with limescale, the water that came out was brown and smelled of sewage, the rooms were small and thin. The interior walls did not reach the ceiling as a result there was no privacy (we were two couples ...). There is no tv no internet connection there. We had to clean everything and only thanks to the kindness of neighbors (Mike & Angie) after three days we had clean water. Pretty much the house was closed from December 2011!

Too bad because the house would have cared if it was beautiful.

Excuse my English, I used Google.

Owner's Response: Hmmm, this is interesting. I have received this response 6 months after the guests’ vacation! But nothing had been communicated to me in the meantime. The people referred to as (Mick & Angie), whom complimentary remarks have been made, are the same people who look after, clean and prepare the house prior to guests arriving. Therefore we find it is rather surprising and difficult to believe, that a dead rat was there to greet the guests upon arrival. Having not been there in person upon their arrival, and no previous complaints of the house being 'dirty' as Mick & Angie clean the house prior to any rental, would suggest questioning the expectation and definition of cleanliness. The thickness of the walls and the design of the interior, upper level, walls not reaching the ceiling (because of the building design) are remarks that I find difficult to comprehend as an issue, because the whole house was available and one couple could use the downstairs bedroom, (3 double bedrooms in total) to ensure 'increased privacy' for both couples. The water supplied to the house is from a well that is cut from lime stone, and yes we do get lime scale deposits building up, but these are treated regularly, therefore the remark 'encrusted' in my view is an exaggeration. The smell that has been referred to is the smell of the very low level of sulphur (from the well water), and once the water has been running through taps and toilet used for a very short period upon initial use/arrival, it dissipates quickly, as the well water is supplemented with rainwater captured from the rain harvester. However, the point is noted and the on-going challenge of keeping a home in the tropics continues with joy and a smile. I am very glad that they found the location, place, and house beautiful, as everyone does, and that issues referred to about cleanliness are noted. However, It is a shame that the guest did not contact me directly to discuss this, opposed to posting their review 6 months after their vacation.
