About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

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

Rayann's Beach House @ Three Sisters' Rocks, located five minutes drive from Exumas international airport and 15 minutes drive 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 bathroom apartments. One unit is called 'Ray' and the other unit is named 'Ann'. Both Ray and Ann upper level houses 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Each bedroom has a balcony. The master bedroom has a panoramic view of the sea. downstairs is the kitchen, a half bathroom, and a dining and lounge area. A double French door opens onto a private veranda with a breathtaking view of the ocean. There are ceiling fans in every room and central air conditioning.

The Sandals Resort (formerly Four Seasons) Greg Norman Golf Course and Marina can be reached in 8 minutes by car. A convenience store is in walking distance. Larger grocery stores, a health facility, banks with ATM's are found in George Town.

A boat tour to the northern Exuma Cays would be most exciting to see the swimming pigs, the iguanas, and the famous James Bond Thunderball Grotto Cave.

Local restaurants, and other places of interest may be found in the information booklet provided at the beach house.

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 tranquility.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2012

Why The Owner chose Moss Town

This property has sentimental value for my family because it was passed down through the generations. The property can not be sold and may be 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 onto the beach!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week stay in "Ray". The property is a duplex and the other side is named Ann. We did have a couple staying next to us during the week, but rarely saw or heard them. The home was very clean and well equipped with all the comforts of home. The unit has two bedrooms upstairs (with balconies), two full baths (one with a shower and one with a tub). One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two twins. The staircase going to the downstairs area has low head clearance and creaks loudly. Downstairs, there is a den area, a half bath (with a stackable washer and dryer) and a full kitchen that faces the front of the unit. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed. However, there is no dishwasher. The den area has a couch (does not fold out into a bed), a small glass dining table with four chairs, and one other chair for sitting. There are tv's in the two bedrooms and the den. The home has wi-fi and we had spotty service at times, but overall it was not an issue. Exit the french doors off the den (back of home) and walk onto a small covered patio and then onto a wooden deck. There is a picnic table on the deck and outdoor furniture. From the deck, there is a fairly steep set of maybe eight stairs that lead you directly onto an amazing, beautiful beach! Three sisters beach is beautiful and we rarely saw any other people all week. If you like to snorkel, there is an amazing reef in between the beach and the three large rocks straight out from the home. The home is centrally located on the island and very close to the airport. There are a couple of small convenience stores and liquor stores close by. The owners of this unit are available at all times and very kind and helpful. We had an amazing time staying here and look forward to returning as soon as possible. Enjoy!!!

It is all about the location

  • 5 of 5

You are literally 20 steps from the beach. Out through the back porch over the stairs into the ocean. You can't go wrong with that location especially with at least 1 mile of beach to walk without seeing anyone. 5 stars are a must with this set-up.

You do have neighbors , if the other unit is rented at the same time, but we didn't hear / feel ours at all.

The detailed descriptions of the unit itself in other reviews are still accurate.We found all we needed and had some beers , soft drinks and fresh bread waiting for us upon arrival.

Finding the unit at night is a challenge as there are no street lights. After a few times it got better so.

When you go to Exuma, you have to be able to let go off high-speed internet, (wifi/4G) or having a grocery store like the one at home. My family spent all day long on the beach reading books or take long walks.

Both Mildred and Isadora were very helpful. I hope , we can come back some day.

This was our second visit to Rayann's and we had a wonderful stay. Mildred and Isadora are the perfect hosts and make sure that your stay is perfect in every way. We will most definitely stay there again on our next visit which we hope will be soon!

The best spot in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

I did quite a bit of research on where to stay in Exuma. Since it is such a small island I actually saw most of the other places I checked out and I am convinced this is the absolute best place to stay on the Island. The condo was extremely clean when we arrived and had all the comforts of home including a washer and dryer. On tripadvisor the “Three Sisters Beach” is one of the top three things to do on the island. It’s literally at your front door every morning. It is just beautiful light blue and turquoise water as far as the eye can see.

On top of the great centralized location and condo, Isadora and Mildred were amazing to work with and gave us their phone number and told us to call anytime we had questions about the island. I had told them this was our honeymoon and they had champagne and flower petals throughout the condo. I felt a warm and inviting feeling from them and most of the folks I dealt with on this island.

I can’t recommend this place enough. We are already looking at flight prices for next year to come back and visit. Thank you again Isadora and Mildred for such an amazing experience.

Incredible vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? Mildred and Isadora could not have been more responsive and informative throughout this process. Not to mention, the house was exactly what we had hoped for. The unit was immaculately clean and had everything we needed (beach towels, snorkel gear, a well-stocked kitchen, etc…). The beach and water throughout the Exumas is the best I have even seen (better than the BVI’s, Jamaica, Cozumel, DR).

Three sisters rocks beach right in front of Rayann’s is absolutely stunning. We spent plenty of time enjoying our own private beach. We also explored the island which I highly recommend. Highlights for us were visiting Coco Plum beach, Chat n Chill, Exuma Point, and taking the full day excursion with Four C’s (swim with the pigs, snorkeling Thunderball Grotto etc…).

We will definitely visit Exuma again and when we do we will stay at Rayanns!

Amazing house & Perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further for another home away from home! Rayann's exceeded our expectations. The views are gorgeous and the home was very clean. You have everything that you will need for your stay. These wonderful ladies have thought of it all and made sure we were comfortable. I highly recommend renting a car like we did so you can explore the entire island. There are so many places to see and enjoy! If you like adventure, you must take an all day boat tour to see the pigs and swim with sharks. We had a blast with Coastline but there are other companies as well. You'll want to take a ferry to Stocking Island so you can hang out at Chat N Chill and swim/feed sting rays. We also bought a day pass to Sandals Resort that allows you access to their property and amenities as well as unlimited drinks & food for the entire day (10am-6pm). I can't stress enough that Rayann's beach house is a gem! The views were breathtaking. It was like our own private beach. We miss it already and are planning our next trip back soon! We like to travel and I can honestly say that Exuma and Rayann's was our best trip yet! To top off an already perfect vacation, we got engaged while there too!! Isadora, Mildred & Annie, you have a wonderful home and were so helpful. Thank you for being so sweet and accommodating! We can't wait to stay again very soon!

The property is ideally located to enjoy all that Great Exuma Island has to offer. Building is new and very homely. It is indeed a home-away-from home. Step right out of the door onto Three Sisters' beach!
