Overview

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!

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!

Incredible beach house

  • 5 of 5

Dearest Isadora and Mildred,

WOW! We are speechless at how amazing our stay was.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your stunning, well-kept, clean, comfortable, beautiful beach house!

We were absolutely in love with the location and peacefulness and serenity of it all.

Brooke and I love to immerse ourselves in the culture, speak to the locals and try all local foods and drinks. We explored as much of the island as we could in those 5 super fast days, which is NEVER long enough.

We will definitely be visiting again!

My friend Alana Kaye (aka Lani) asked me where I stayed and she might get in touch at some stage, also her friend Luke is looking for a place and I highly recommend Rayann's to them!

I wanted to leave you a little note to say thank you, but I ran out of time making sure we got one last ocean dip in before we left!

Oh and we called Patrick the taxi driver to take us to the airport, he called the radio station and we got a shout out on the radio!!! So cool!!!!!!

When we come back, we will be staying with you again!

Lots of love,

Carla and Brooke xxx

Great vacation rental right on a prestine white sand beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and was constantly in awe how beautiful and secluded the beach is. Isodora and Mildred are fantastic hosts and super responsive. They even provided a local cell phone for us to use which came in handy a few times when you are calling local restaurants for reservations.

If you are looking for seclusion this is the place for you. You can BBQ outside and not leave the apartment most of the time. The washer and dryer albeit small were very convenient to have. The AC in the apartment worked extremely well as well.

The only drawback was wifi is spotty at times so if you need constant connectivity this would be a watch out. Also be sure to put on bug repellent if you are going to walk on the beach at dusk and dawn. We got eaten alive by the sand fleas on our first night there strolling on the beach.

And a rental car is a must have. If you are coming from US they do drive on the opposite side in Bahamas so it takes some getting used to.

I absolutely love this place! My second time booking.

  • 5 of 5

The place is clean, and has absolutely everything you need. Mildred and Isadora couldn't be more accommodating to our needs. Quick to reply with any questions.

The pictures don't do justice on how beautiful it is inside, and out.

Thanks so much for your hospitality.
