Palmetto Place is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home located in Masters Harbour, Bahama Sound 11 West. It sits on a small hillside providing beautiful ocean views of Elizabeth Harbour and Crab Cay. Catch the stunning sunrise over the harbour from your front deck each morning and see the beautiful hues of the sky at sunset. The house is fully furnished and includes all the amenities to make it your home away from home.
The central location makes it a perfect place from which to explore the island!
Head west to George Town, the Capital of Exuma, where you will find everything you need for your stay. Groceries, restaurants, cafes, liquor store, bars, water taxis, bank machines, a gas station and local souvenirs at the straw market. Continue further west to the fish fry and try some local Bahamian cuisine. Just west of the fish fry is the hotel area where you will find various events from local bands, dancing, casual and fine dining or just a nice, quiet place to relax over a few cold drinks. Just past the hotel area are some of the islands most spectacular beaches including Jolly Hall and Three Sisters. Watch for the beach access signs – most of which you park near and walk in to the beach. Continue west and you will pass the International Airport, Sandals Emerald Bay Resort and The Emerald Bay Golf Course (designed by Greg Norman). At the very western tips of the island you will find Exuma Point and Barraterre.
Head east and cross over The Ferry (bridge) to Little Exuma where you will find even more spectacular beaches and some hidden restaurant gems. Stop by Tropic Breeze for stunning views while having a world class lunch or hit up Santanna’s for some cracked lobster. Spend the afternoon at the world famous Tropic of Cancer beach. For the more adventurous beach goers, check out Google Satellite to find unmarked beaches. These don’t have signs and may have rough roads requiring a careful drive or a brief walk from the road – but trust us on this – they will be spectacular! Visit the Salt Marker in Williams Town and the Rolle Town Tombs – so much island history to learn and appreciate.
Want to go off-island? Take a water taxi to Stocking Island and relax at the Chat N’ Chill. Pet the stingrays or swim with the sharks. Book an adventure to see the swimming pigs, iguanas, snorkel in underwater caves at Thunderball Grotto, bonefish or have a romantic beach picnic on a private island. Rent a boat, kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling or scuba gear and head off on your own. You can even hop on a plane and visit one of the other family islands for the day.
After your adventurous day, come home and relax on the 900 sq. ft. of deck offering ocean views from three sides of the house. Cook in the completely outfitted kitchen or grill on the BBQ in the 250 sq. ft. screened in porch and eating area. You can arrange for Bahamian fare to be delivered or prepared in your kitchen by a local chef and be sure to check out some of the world class restaurants for dinner. You will also want to spend at least one night at Catch-A-Fire to see one of the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen.
