Exuma House Rental Photos and Description

Centrally located 3 bedroom, 2 bath hillside home with beautiful ocean views!

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 north to George Town, the Capitol 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 north to the fish fry and try some local Bahamian cuisine. Just north 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 north and you will pass the International Airport, Sandals Emerald Bay Resort and The Emerald Bay Golf Course (designed by Greg Norman). At the very northern tips of the island you will find Exuma Point or Barraterre.

Head south 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.

About Marj & Don

We are retired and live in the Marmora, Ontario, Canada area. When we are not in Canada, we are enjoying the beautiful island of Exuma. We are avid beach goers and find somewhere or something new and interesting each time we visit the island.

Marj & Don purchased this house in 2014

Why Marj & Don chose Bahamas

We had been vacationing in the Bahamas for several years and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the ocean and the local people the first time we stayed in Exuma. There is a reason why they are called 'family islands' and it's because that is how they make you feel - like family. We chose this property because of the beautiful ocean views, the central location and the fact we are only 5 minutes from the water on both sides of the island.

What makes this house unique

Exuma is a place where you can relax, explore the beauty of the island and the stunning beaches at your own pace or ramp up the adventure - whichever you prefer. There is no traffic, no crowds and the beaches are almost always deserted. It truly is paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time on Exuma. Cottage was great, it has a lovely airy open feel and super beds.

I Really enjoyed the hummingbird, I have always wanted to see them so the feeders were greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your tips and beach suggestions. We had a great time finding your suggested beautiful beaches :), a hog roast on Stocking Island and a great night out.



Thanks for sharing your home from home

Amazing!

My girlfriend and I spent 8 wonderful days at Palmetto Place and we did not want to leave! The pictures really do not do justice to how wonderful the property and view is. Marj was a wonderful host and assisted us tremendously. She gave us helpful info on places to go, places to see and we truly got the full Exuma experience. We WILL be coming back to Palmetto Place!!

Comfortable place to stay with very helpful owner to guide your activity

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week's stay at Palmetto Place, which was well equipped and spacious place for four adults and our granddaughter. It has all the comforts of home, including much-needed air conditioning. Marj also provided us with more information than any other VRBO owner has ever provided. She emailed suggestions for places to eat, the rental car company to use. She also emailed written directions from the airport, since GPS devices do not really work there. We found the people to be friendly, and one of the caretakers even let us snorkel at a beach just down the street. The flowers around the house were beautiful. We found that you could let go of the attachments to constant technology (Our personal Comcast Xfinity did not work there), but hey, the Wi-Fi worked for email, and I found out that you can really get by without CNN for a whole week. It was a clean place to stay, and we would recommend it to any one planning a getaway visit to Exuma.

Palmetto Place - Exuma - It's a Bit of Alright!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to get away for a bit and certainly wanted to head south. I had heard and read some very good reviews about Palmetto Place so I decided to join the owners for a little island tour. The accommodations at Palmetto are very spacious and comfortable. With a full kitchen and appliances, you could simply get groceries at a local store and spend your nights eating in, or travel out to any one of a dozen great food places. Shirlies and Tropic Beach to name 2. The seafood is amazing!!

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and again very spacious. The temperatures were great and when it got too hot, well take a dip in the colourful waters to cool off. The people are extremely friendly and very hospitable.

I would certainly recommend this place (and have done so) to my friends.

Comfortable space and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight nights at Palmetto Place last month and did not want to leave! Flo had our groceries all set upon arrival, and the house was in perfect condition with plenty of space and everything we needed. The location is perfect for exploring all of Exuma; we drove north and south on different days checking out all of the beautiful beaches. Flo recommended a company to do the full-day tour including swimming with pigs, and we enjoyed seeing the different islands and getting out on the water. We were able to go for walks and jogs in the neighborhood to the other side of the island (not a long distance) -- with great views along the way and friendly neighbors. Although there were other houses not too far away, we felt like we had plenty of privacy and were very safe. Marj was super helpful in advance of our trip with recommendations for logistics and sightseeing. We certainly left our hearts in Exuma and hope to return soon!
