It is almost as having your own private beach. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the perfect location for you and your family/loved ones.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Five Stars!!! What a wonderful beach house! The house is in great condition for a beach vacation. My husband, two kids, mother -in-law and myself stayed there for a week and absolutely loved our stay. A beautiful deck has been added onto the beach side of the house and is lovely to sit and eat meals on. The property was very clean and exactly as described - complete with beach towels, a kayak to use, and a gas grill! Hoopers Bay is a great location - very calm waters and quiet. There is a colony of sea turtles that lives steps away from this house. I hope that we are able to come back to Exuma and stay in this house again! Gary (the owner) and Flo (the care-taker) were both easy to work with and very helpful.

Ideal home....perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Bahama Breeze is everything that you could ask for! This was our second trip to Exuma, and we know for sure that Hooper's Bay is the best location. The water in front of the house is ideal for relaxing, enjoying some water play or just sitting and listening to the waves. The cottage is perfect for a couple or even a family of four. The house has two bedrooms, each with a full size bed, then upstairs in the loft, there is plenty of room for few air mattresses if you planned to bring those yourself. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, and the entire house is impeccably clean. The house manager, Flo, is wonderful and helpful - she clearly cares a great deal about upkeep and maintenance of the home. We loved the back deck and could have spent all our days out there - relaxing in the sun and using the grill. Only two very small things could have improved the stay - a new spatula for the kitchen (the one there is broken) and a clothes line outside to hang up wet suits. Literally everything else was perfect!

Thank you to Gary and Vee - this house is excellent!

Amazing Secluded Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I had a wonderful time staying here. Couldn't have asked for anything better. The home is just as described. Quite, quant, with a beautiful view of the ocean and basically a private beach. We spent almost every evening down on the sand and only saw one other family WAY off in the distance. Supposedly there are sea turtles in the area but we didn't find them. The beds were comfortable (not too firm) and the AC was a huge plus - the place will be an ice box if you want it to be. The back deck is huge and could accommodate a large family if needed. There are plenty of beach toys like snorkels, fins, and a kayak. The location is great. Just about 2 miles from George Town and not to far from the airport. There is a deli and a market a short walk down the highway which will cover all of our needs while you are there. We had initially planned on going without a car during our trip, but walking to George Town is a little far. We ended up renting a scooter ($50/day) which was a lot of fun. We also recommend renting a boat from George Town and cruising around the harbor and going over to Stocking Island. Thank you again to Gary and Vee for the accommodations. They even gave us a bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary. We look forward to our next trip to the Bahama Breeze Cottage.

Amazing spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this sweet cottage in March and were so excited when it was every bit as wonderful as described. Big deck with an amazing view. Felt roomy inside the cottage with the high ceilings. The beach was pristine and lots of accessories (inflatable tubes, kayaks, beach chairs) were put to good use. We did rent a car which was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. There was a lot of wind a few days we were there but were still able to walk the beach and go for a dip in the water. We stayed with our two kids aged 6 and 7 and it was perfect for them... Can't say enough great things. Highly recommended.

The most beautiful beach we've ever been on

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in mid-May and couldn't have been happier. The owners were great to deal with as was Flo who manages the property locally. The cottage was perfect for two people and can nicely accommodate four people as it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and the fridge is new and quickly creates ice. You can drink the water directly from the tap and you'll appreciate the air-conditioning at night. The beach front was amazing and the small hut on the beach keeps you out of the sun. We can't say enough good things about the cottage, its amenities and view. Hoopers Bay was very calm during our stay and the water was warm and flat as glass some days. Incredible swimming and the inflatable mattresses were a real bonus. Great snorkeling with the sea turtles further down the shore and we regularly walked the beach and used the kayak daily. A great find, excellent value and we'll be back.

This is our second visit to the Bahamas Breeze. We couldn't ask for a more perfect location. The home is spotless, the amenities are perfect, the location is outstanding. The huge deck on back looking at the ocean is breathtaking.

We used the gas bbq grill almost everyday. The home is close to deli's, grocery store and liquor store all in walking distance. The manager is there to address all your needs if there are any. We will be coming back again and again and each year look forward to our visit even more. Outstanding value I wish I could rate it even higher.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Bahama Breeze for the first week of our 2 week vacation on Great & Little Exuma. Gary was extremely easy to deal with and provided great directions to the house. It is an easy drive from the airport, and Flo arrived to greet us shortly after we got to the house. The house is well equipped and has pretty much everything you need, including a washer and dryer. The only issue was with the beds, which were not comfortable. As another guest mentioned, a topper would probably take care of it.

The best part is the gorgeous, white sand beach that is just steps from the back deck. We only saw a few people during the entire week we were there, and the beach was pretty much just ours. We rented a car and did explore the entire island. If you stay here, you MUST go to Island Deli & Meats. Ron has the best chicken salad and crab salad on the planet! The Hideaway restaurant is also good for pizza and wings and a fun game of pool. Another recommendation is Catch a Fire on Wednesday nights, where there is live music and a beautiful sunset. Call ahead for reservations. A day trip to Stocking Island is also worthwhile.

Thank you Gary and Vee for making our week on Great Exuma one we will never forget!

Beach Cottage is conveniently located, close to the airport (4.4 miles away), Georgetown (capital), restaurants and groceries. Ideally located on arguably the best beach on the island. The beach is calm, clear and clean. It is almost as having your own private beach. It is ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
