Why Wendy and Frank chose Exuma

We traveled all over the Caribbean, and Central

America looking for the perfect place to build our

dream home. When we saw the beautiful waters of Exuma, we know immediately this is where we wanted to be.

Perfect Beach Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located on a very quiet, beautiful beach and the color of the water is absolutely stunning. The property is very well equipped and perfectly decorated. Wendy, the owner, is very responsive and provides tips even the most seasoned traveler would not think to ask. We would definitely recommend this property!

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children - ages 15 & 9) just returned from our absolutely amazing vacation. Wendy is so great to work with and provided all of the information we needed to make our vacation AMAZING!! Their house is beautifully decorated and was extremely clean! The beds were very comfortable and the overall lay out is perfect! Waking up every morning and seeing the beautiful ocean and beach outside was just perfect! You are literally on the beach - just open the sliding glass door and there you are! We were the only ones on the beach 98% of the time we were there. Seriously - no one else on the beach, just us! It was perfect! We took the kayaks out one of the days - the water was so calm and so beautiful! We did the Exuma Water Sports Pig Tour. Well worth it! Being able to see and swim in some of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen and snorkeling in crystal clear water was just awesome! You have to go to Prime Deli & Meat. The owner is soooooooooo nice and so helpful!! We will definitely be returning to Great Exuma and we will definitely be renting from Wendy again! We have been to many many many different beaches (Hawaii, Aruba, Cancun, Destin, etc..) and we have never seen water as beautiful and clear as it is in Great Exuma!! We definitely didn't want to leave and we can't wait to go back! Thank You Wendy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!! We can't wait to come back next summer!!

Perfect Setting In Great Exuma!!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home from an 8-day stay at Bahama Breeze in Great Exuma and I cannot say enough great things about the property! The house is extremely clean, plenty of room for our 6 family members, it is decorated wonderfully and the linens and beds provided great nights of sleep while we were there. And even though the interior of the house is so fantastic, it does pale in comparison to the beach and the view of the water from almost everywhere in the house! The beach is literally out your back door! The water and the sand is the prettiest we have ever seen!! I think I could have stayed another week and still wanted more of that view! Wendy was extremely helpful when it came to recommendations of things to do and places to eat. She helped us all the way from getting the rental car set up to the excursions we went on the see the pigs, iguanas, and remote beaches that looked like you were on the set of a movie! The location of the house is fantastic! It's set back off the main road enough that you do not hear any road noise, though central enough on the island that you can access just about everything with ease. When we return to Great Exuma, which we certainly will, we will stay here again!

Absolutely gorgeous-- even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation ever. We have been to many islands and the water around Great Exuma is hands down the most beautiful water you will ever see. The property was just as described and the views from the house are amazing. Loved the screened porch in the mornings and evenings. It's located on a beautiful and very private beach. Location was perfect to go to either end of the island. Proximity to the airport is wonderful. Wendy was fantastic to work with and we can't wait to plan our next stay at this house.

BEST Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

FIVE out of five stars, without questions.

We had an absolutely wonderful, relaxing vacation at Wendy's and Frank's beautiful, beach-front villa on Great Exuma. Driving around the island, as we did, we think this is the absolute best that Exuma has to offer, in terms to proximity to the airport, the beach, the cleanliness, the security; etc.

It is even better than the photos allow...This beautiful villa is right on a most stunning, almost secluded, beach; and it boasts a large, beautiful, back porch to enjoy your morning coffee, or perhaps bbq some local Grouper!

The very clean home is designed around a wonderful, central floor plan, and each of the three bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom, which we found very nice.

The home itself is not only clean, and well maintained, but it has everything that one could possible need while on vacation - From linens and beach towels, to a full kitchen. I must add that it is very tastefully decorated.

If you've never been to the Exumas before, the first thing you'll notice is the beautiful "Exuma blue" waters....just stunning, and perfect for snorkeling.

We certainly enjoyed using the kayaks provided, to enjoy this all the more.

The other thing you'll notice is that the people of Exuma are warm, and welcoming. We first noticed this with communications with Wendy, but we also experienced the fact that all of the local business owners that Wendy recommended were equally lovely.

Wendy recommended day trips that we thoroughly enjoyed (especially to Tropic of Cancer Beach, with lunch at Santanna's - I cannot say enough about the lovely ladies at Santanna's!).

We had a fabulous vacation, and can't wait to go back!

Thank you Wendy and Frank, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa!!!

it was perfect--perfect location-perfect kitchen and bathrooms and comfortable bed

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our house on vacation--the location was perfect for us to travel in either direction/ we also found our beach with our house was our favorite. I can't say enough about the house as the pictures were beautiful but the house itself was breathtaking when you were in it. For two couples it was perfect.

My husband was up every morning for the sun rises---we never got tired of the pictures he took. Everyone on the island couldn't be any nicer or more helpful. We have been to the island of Eleuthera and loved that--but if you want beautiful beaches-great restaurants--Great Exuma is the place to go.We are planing to come back again for sure/ we didn't get to go see the pigs -but that is first on our list our next time visiting. We went to Chat and Chill twice and will never tire of going there--food was great and everyone that went there were wonderful too.

Catch a Fire was a lot of fun too--and they make sure everyone is having a nice time--and the sunsets are beautiful. The Splash restaurant was fun too with the swings at the bar--there wasn't anywhere we went that we didn't enjoy/ right down the street Housemans was an excellent restaurant and fun eating and looking at the water.

We are looking forward to coming back next year--and Wendy and was very nice working with you! We did check out a couple of houses--we are still up in the air about buying or just renting for like 3 months during the winter when we retire. I still have to convince myself that i can enjoy staying home and not working--it's a bad habit right now still ha ha---but it think i am getting ready sooner than later

Thank you for being patient with all my questions---and i'm not fooling when i say your house has been our best rental yet--and we thought we have rented some pretty nice ones. Thank you for sharing it with us

hope to be back next year!
