Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Livingroom/Kitchen, 1 Play/TV room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come relax and play on the balcony, dock, small beach or on one of the patios of this beautiful, home at waters edge with amazing panorama views and fabulous sunset. Overlooking the cays, bonefish flats and sandbars of Great Exuma, offering swimming, fishing, and kayaking etc.

It has huge dock with steps down to the white sand bottom and fantastic turquoise waters. It also has several sitting areas both at the house and down at the waters edge with a screened in Gazebo with a thatch roof for shade, It has a barbecue grill and an big open fire place with a thatched shade where you can enjoy eating and cooking the catch of the day when the sun sets. You can sit and read or layout on the patio, dock or in the white sand on the small “beach” directly in front of the home at the waters edge. There is great swimming right off the patio with a crystal clear sand bottom.

This villa is not rented out much, only few weeks a year and mostly to family friends and guest to the owner.We prefer to "lend out" our home.

This villa is very close to the bonefish flats, reefs and beautiful cays, which means a lot of fishing, diving, kayaking and swimming just outside the premises. It also has no drop offs, very little undertow, just enough waters. The water is from approximately 2 feet to only 5 feet deep at it's deepest far out from the dock. It is always deep enough for boat at the dock. You can take your family out on our kayak (built big enough for two adults) for an adventure and explore the island cays that are part of your view, or bring your fishing pole in the worlds best bone fishing waters that are your front yard.

DoubleW villa is wonderfully secluded and quiet, with the ocean breezes and waves being all that you hear.

The location is perfect. Not far from the airport and close to Georgetown, restaurants, market and little Exuma with all its world famous beaches. The house is less than 10 minutes drive to Georgetown where you can find all the restaurants, stores and activities you could want. You can eat at the local restaurants, only 5 (Cheaters) to 10 (Coral lounge etc) minutes away, go grocery and souvenir shopping in Georgetown less than 10 minutes away or drive to little Exuma which is only 20 minutes drive away to explore the many world class beautiful beaches, including Tar Bay, Hoopers Bay and Cocoplum Beach (great Exuma) or Love Beach (La Shante), Jolly Hall, Sand Dollar Beach and Tropic of Cancer (Little Exuma) etc., all amazing beaches.

You can also take Elvis’ water taxi at the Government dock over to Stocking Island and visit the beach on the Atlantic side which is a an epic beach. You can have a great lunch at the Chat N’ Chill on Stocking Island and swim with the ray’s and even dolphin’s if you are lucky.

Also highly recommend is a visit with to Shant’e or Santana’s on Little Exuma. Where Dee cook extremely great sea food and Dee’s mother has a little bakery next door with fresh bread and excellent rum cake. You can also eat the very best Conch Fritters at the Arawac bar close to Dee’s place.

Villa Double W is one of the most relaxing, beautiful and quite place you can experience and many says it one of the best spots in Exuma with the clearest waters of the whole Bahamas and with a never ending nice breeze. You can sit in the Gazeebo with shade, on the balcony, small beach or on the patio areas. It's amazingly beautiful – and escape to the paradise and a slice of heaven. You never get bored of just sitting out on the dock or in the screened in Gazebo, just relax and looking on the turquoise waters with breathtaking views all around. This side of the island is very quiet and the lea side protected from the winds providing a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy the day in the sea in front of the house, or venturing out across Exuma to explore its many treasured beaches.

The house is fully equipped, clean, very comfortable and private. The home has all the modern conveniences you require, from air conditioning to washer and dryer to a nice outdoor barbecue and a open fire at the water edge for those evenings you would like to stay home. It also has two outside showers, one at the house and one at the dock. There are also two showers inside the house. The grounds are very well kept, natural with a variety of tropical plants and trees to provide a lush green environment.

From the master bedroom which is upstairs, you wake up in the morning to the gentle sound of the sea and from bed overlook the flats that extend for miles through the patio doors and the gorgeous turquoise waters. Upstairs you also have a bath room and game/ reading room, a very quiet spot to enjoy a good book or play X-box or other games if you prefer that.

In the evening you can sit on the patio by the waters and watch natures magic as the sun extinguished it self in the western sea. In the evening you can head into town (only 10 minutes) and visit whichever restaurant was featuring entertainment that night. Pretty much every evening one of the restaurants or bars would have live entertainment to enjoy.

You can take an adventure tour one day with the property manager’s brother Bob or Pat to swim with the sharks or if you prefer that with the swimming pigs and see the famous underwater Thunderball caves made popular in one of the bond movies. You can also rent a boat for a few days to explore the beaches of Stocking Island or the cays in front of the house (it’s a lot of cays just in front of the house and quite far out) and enjoy the snorkeling on the many reefs around the cays. You can treat yourself to a guided bone fishing trip or ask Ray for a real heavy fishing tour for a day hooking up several and landing a lot fishes on the flyrod or by diving. You will get more fish than you need and it will be a great experience you never will forget.

Customer service from the property manager Ray is top notch. He can help you with almost all needs and will do the best to make the stay very smooth and comfortable. Ray knows the island top to bottom. He'll tell you everything you need to know from the best places to shop and eat, to the best beaches and snorkel spots. He is a builder and one of the island best fishermen.

He will take care of you when you arrive and if you have any requests please let him know (e.g., at your request, a bottle of whine and a package of lobster tails will be waiting for you in the refrigerator when you arrive-:). He is determined to assist in making your stay delightful and comfortable. He is serving as a care-taker for the house as well as a liaison for any house-guests. He would stop by the property when it is needed without disturbing your privacy. He will also make sure the house is clean before you arrive.

About Anders

My name is Anders and the house was finished 2008. I am the owner of the house and Ray Smith is the property manager. Can fix everything. I am a consultant working with management teams.

Anders purchased this house in 2008

Why Anders chose Bahamas

It's the best spot on the island and Exuma is the best island with the clearest water in Bahamas. My father bought lots here in the 60s.

What makes this house unique

Bonefish flats just in front of the property, a lot of virgin and secluded beaches in the area, perfect location less than 10 mins from Georgetown but very private where the house is located. Spectacular view with fantastic sunrise and sunset every day. A patio and beach area with a grill pitt at the ocean. Very romantic in the evenings.

A perfect paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 11 wonderful days here. We had a wonderful time, the house was perfect for us! My boys 14 and 7 both enjoyed being able to walk out the front door and snorkel with the little fish around the dock. The seclusion of the house is absolutely amazing, we are still amazed that such a beautiful place is not overrun with tourists.

The house had plenty of room for the 4 of us with room to spare. The kitchen is nicely equipped and the waterfront grill was great for cooking fresh fish. It's not far to Georgetown and the markets making it easy to get what you need.

The hummingbirds and bananaquits are a treat to watch and the lizards and tree frogs provided us with some good entertainment as well.

My 14 year old and I enjoyed paddling around in the kayak and exploring the closest cays. While my husband and I enjoyed sitting in the cabana in the evening drinking a cold kalik.

We hope to return as this was one of the best vacations for relaxing and being together as a family. Thanks so much For the use of your beautiful home, I really can't say enough to describe how much we enjoyed it.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week at this home in Exuma. It was way too short of a time for this place. We loved every minute of it. The caretaker,Ray, was great and helped when needed and left us alone otherwise. The location is ideal for those who want a quiet spot on the flats side of the island. The Kayak was great for splash and paddle days on the water. The house is roomy and well maintained with all that you need to cook and an excellent music collection heavy on the R and B and blues. I spent the week with my wife and adult daughter and we all want to come back soon. Anders was great to work with front side getting things arranged for our stay.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a picture perfect 2 weeks at this home in Exuma. It was very clean, comfortable, and private, with breathtaking views all around. The location was perfect. Not far from the airport, close to Georgetown, restaurants, market, etc., and not far from beautiful Little Exuma and its beaches. The caretaker Ray, was also very helpful and informative. He aided us in renting a boat, and was always available for any questions we might have. We have rented numerous homes through Homeaway and VRBO, & I can easily say this was one of the most positive experiences we've ever had in regards to the people we dealt with. I would highly reccomend this home & its owners to anyone looking to escape to the paradise of Great Exuma! I know we'll be back!

A little slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a couple of weeks on Exuma Island, had such an incredible time and loved this villa, a true little slice of Heaven! A really beautiful home at waters edge, with amazing views, incredible dock, swimming, water fun, and the most relaxing spot I ever visited. The house was fully equipped, everything worked as it should and it was very comfortable. Large kitchen, large living area, and large bedrooms. Really enjoyed the huge private dock with steps down to the white sand turquoise waters, beautifully finished with barbecue grill and furniture to relax and eat while enjoying the beautiful view and breezes.

Used the 2 man-kayak to explore the uninhabited cays not far from the house, amazing sandy beaches! It was also only 8 minutes drive to Georgetown with restaurants, stores and all activities you could want.

One of my most favourite places in the world , sitting on the deck, looking out onto some of the bluest waters you'll see in your life….Highly recommended!

private sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I along with our 2 daughters and son in law just returned after 2 great weeks on Great Exuma staying on the lee side of the island This side of the island is very quiet and protected from the winds providing a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy the day in the Sea in front of the house, or as we often did venturing out accross Exuma to explore its many treasured beaches. The home was a great fit for our group with room to spare. It had all the modern convieniences you require, from air conditioning to washer and dryer to a nice outdoor barbecue for those evenings you would like to stay home. Home was spotless upon our arrival and the house keeper Janiece was always helpful and looked after any needs or questions we had. The property is less than a 10 minute drive to Georgetown and having a rental car is a must to truly enjoy and explore the island. The grounds are very well kept with a variety of topical plants and trees to provide a lush green enviroment.

We made good use tof the kayak and been on the lee side of the island wind was never a problem on the water. There was great swimmining right off the padio with a crystal clear sand bottom.

From the master bedroom which is upstairs, you wake up in the morning to the gentle sound of the sea and from bed overlook the flats that extend for miles through the padio doors and the georgeous turquoise waters. In the evening we would sit on the patio by the water and watch natures magic as the sun extinquished it self in the western sea. around 8:00 in the evening we would head into town and visit whichever resturant was featuring entertainment that night. Pretty much every evening one of the resturants or bars would have live entertainment to enjoy.

The kids had a great time taking an adventure tour one day to swim with the sharks and see the famous underwater caves made popular in the jsmes bond movies. We rented a boat from Minns for a few days to eplore the beaches of stocking island and we all really enjoyed the snorkling on the many reefs around stocking Island. My daughter and I even tried some fishing of those reefs and had a blast catching a number of diffrent types of reef fish. I treated myself to a guided bonefishing trip for Dads day out had a great day hooking up several and landing a few on the flyrod. What a great experience. Overall I'd rate the rate our trip a very solid 9 out of 10. What would have made it a 10/10

well thats easy , another week on island tim
