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 Exuma

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!

Exuma Greatness

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are particular about our vacation time off and value when we find greatness in a vacation. 2016 was our first trip to Georgetown, Exuma and this year we continue to experience more than just a relaxing vacation with beautiful beaches but the people are like our family. Everywhere you go this experience can be found in Georgetown, Exuma. Isadora and Mildred are unlike any hosts we have met anywhere in the world we have traveled. We can truly call them our island sisters. My wife and I are committed to making RayAnn our annual vacation spot and we are blessed to experience this each and every year.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent 10 wonderful days here and it was a dream vacation for sure! Mildred & Isadora were so welcoming when we arrived. They provided us with information to make sure we had a wonderful vacation. The house is very clean and couldn't be in a better location. We saw maybe 5 people on "our private beach" the whole time. A car rental is a must as there is lots to explore. Some of the highlights of our trip was: Chat n Chill (visited there 3 times), rented a boat from Minn's, day trip with Four C's, went to a different beach nearly every day, snorkeling right in our back yard at Three Sisters Beach. The list goes on & on. I cannot describe in words how beautiful this island is. The icing on the cake was the hospitality shown to us by Mildred & Isadora. We cannot wait to return!

First class!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous rental! Hard to put into words how impressed we were with the overall Rayann's experience..... It was love at first sight! Mildred and Isadora are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. The property has the perfect location, beautifully decorated and spotless. The crisp white bedsheets and endless supply of fluffy bath and beach towels, the fully equipped kitchen, the goodies in the fridge...... even a birthday cake for me! We have been renting properties on various Bahamian islands over the last ten years, without doubt, this is the best! We arrived as clients, and I am proud to say, we left as family........ That's me in the photos!

Owner's Response: Thank you too for your fabulous review! It is so gratifying to have clients like you who eventually become family. Thank you for all of the compliments and we are so happy that you found your experience with us a lasting one. You did take some of the sand from our backyard in your shoes :-). We do look forward to having you visit again!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I absolutely loved RayAnn's and everything about Exuma! I have never seen more beautiful water... Photos could never do it justice! The house was perfect for our stay. Isadora and Mildred met us there when we arrived and gave us tons of information about the island. They left us some cold beverages in the fridge, fresh bread, and some fruit! The house had a cooler, beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, and more! The beach was essentially private... We saw maybe 4 or 5 people over our entire stay. Highly recommend renting a car. We used Sure to Shore... The car was waiting on us at the airport and Janese was a pleasure to deal with! We loved visiting Coco Plum and the Tropic of Cancer. Both beaches are stunningly beautiful! Had a blast going over to Stocking Island on the water taxi- Chat & Chill was one of our favorite spots for sure! Enjoyed delicious food at Big D's and saw a gorgeous sunset at Catch a Fire. Loved our half day excursion- 4Cs Adventures picked us up at the house and we saw pigs/iguanas/Blowhole Beach/starfish/snorkeled. We will most certainly visit Exuma again! Thank you so much, ladies. Our stay was perfect.

Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

We took our girls down for the first time, from planning the trip to leaving I can not express enough how amazingly helpful and sweet Isadora was throughout the entire process. We did not want to leave, the condo was so clean and the beach was spectacular. We usually stay at Sandals on the Exumas, honestly the view and beach on this condo was better than the Sandals. We will be returning again soon.!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

I don't have much to add to the glowing reviews, but to concur that everything about the place and the owners was superb! Communication prior to our trip was excellent; they helped us with car rental ( Sure to Shore) and excursion ( 4 C's). We arrived quite late on a blustery day, but were warmly welcomed with great information as well as snacks and drinks! Everyone knows Mildred and Isadora; they taught school for years and are respected business women. There is no question they cannot answer!

Our remote broke on the second day, it was replaced immediately. Other than that, everything was in perfect working order and the unit was very comfortable. It was nice chilling on the couch, watching TV, listening to the surf, drinking a Kalik and having a half bath downstairs!! We had 2 couples in the unit next door, but we never heard them and later shared a drink on the patio. The closest unit is far enough away that you never see or hear anyone. However, the very central location is perfect for visiting all island locations.

One favorite stop was Santana's with the best lobster on the island. Next door, Mama makes the best rum cakes you've ever tasted, drenched with special sauce before your eyes. And the drinks were the best, too! We also loved Catch a Fire with the most beautiful water and sunset. Reservation recommended! Driving wasn't too bad, there is really only one main road and drivers are courteous. Bring lots of cash, the ATMs are tricky at times and bank hours are spotty.

The people on this island are the real treasure. I felt so welcome everywhere, and staying away from big resorts gave us a chance to have a more authentic experience.
