About Vladimir

I have been allover the world to more than 150 countries but when I discovered the beautiful waters, pristine beaches and friendly people on Exuma 4 years ago I knew I wanted to build a unique house for myself and for my family. The Villa at Casa del Mar has fulfilled my dream.


Vladimir purchased this villa in 2015

What makes this villa unique

One of the best beaches in Exumas.

Modern style, privacy, flexibility for large or multiple families, hotel's amenities and...much more as we create more services for our guests!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Henry and I have both fallen absolutely in love with Exuma and Casa Del Mar. The house is beautiful and is simply a great space to be in. The main dining area was by far our favorite part of the house. We spent 99% of our time there and frequently wished the pullout couch was there and not downstairs! The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and really helped us feel like we were truly at home.

Unbelievably Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of couples looking for a house (this ended up working better) as it was 2 villas with the pool/grill in between. It was perfect. Everything from booking the house, to the decor, architecturly beautiful, immaculate not a bug or a spec of dust anywhere. We have stayed in very nice properties and can't say they were spotless. They were very accommodating and the beach was within walking distance. The views from upstairs where the (gourmet) kitchen and living area with an outdoor sitting area where spectacular! We had the house provisioned and arranged for a chef for our first night there and it was the way to go. They had some kayaks and snorkel gear there. Oh and the guys loved the basketball goal in the pool. It was our first trip to there and we will not only be coming back to the Exumas, we will definitely rent this property again. The natives are the friendliest and most honest we have every encountered on any vacations. As it is not as commercialized as some of the other islands, I just hope rude tourists don't ruin it for the rest of us. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!

Unbelievable views and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The houses at Casa deal Mar are great! Our boys loved the pool in the middle and used it every afternoon.

We rented the whole complex and we had enough space so everyone was comfortable.

If there was one complaint is that upon arrival the washing machine was not functioning nor 1 upstairs AC unit in one of the houses. For the money, this needs to be fixed.

Overall, the staff and renting process was great.

Heaven has Competition!

  • 5 of 5

If you are hunting for a secluded island getaway, one that rivals the glimmer of heaven itself, then look no further.................Casa Del Mar! My family and I put a lot of effort into seeking out a remote, yet luxurious condo, capable of accommodating an intimate family retreat. Our primary focus was along the islands of the Exuma Cays (which if you'e reading this review, you have done your research as I, and you must already know that these islands are the most beautiful in all of the Caribbean). When we heard through a few good friends that a new spread of condos designed by architect Jeffrey Silberstein had just gone up on the beach of Great Exuma, we had to jump at the opportunity. Offering pairs of condos that are rented together, joined by a private pool, Casa Del Mar was exactly what we were looking for. Once we disembarked off our small prop plane and arrived at the door step of Casa Del Mar, we were blown away by the condo's architectural pizzazz, style, and lavished amenities. Complimenting the island's natural grandeur, Casa Del Mar is a logical match, however, after touring the island for a full week I can say that nothing else on the island even comes close to this tasteful gem. Truly a remarkable find for us. Words cannot begin to describe the design, decoration, and planning of this five star boutique resort. We are sure that Casa Del Mar is the hidden treasure of the Exumas.

Spectacular 50th Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Casa del Mar! We were a party of 3 couples celebrating life and we had ample room (and one spare bedroom). The décor of the villa is beautiful. The ensuite bedrooms are lavish and luxurious, each having sliding doors into the courtyard/pool area. Each wing has its own stackable washer/dryer, so don't bring too many clothes - Exuma is very casual. The kitchen/dining/living room and balcony are upstairs. The contemporary style gives such a resort feel. We enjoyed the pool area when coming off the beach and the sitting area around the pool after dinner. The outdoor grilling area with refrigerator was perfect.

The beach was almost private, because we did not see many people. It is simply beautiful. We enjoyed kayaking and paddleboarding. We even caught a good sized grouper one day and had delicious grouper bites that evening. We rented a car for the whole week, which was good because there was nothing within walking distance other than the beach.

Esther and Travis took great care of us. We were glad that we asked for provisions in the house because on Sunday's, most groceries and restaurants close on the island. Esther and Travis periodically checked in and handled any of our requests. The midweek cleaning was such a treat! We splurged and had Shariqua Morgan Smith of Customized Catering& Chef Services prepare our first meal and my 50th birthday celebratory meal at the villa. Shariqua is a fabulous chef (her conch fritters are the best we've had) and she is quite entertaining! If you want a fun night, call Shariqua! Our guests enjoyed her so much, they booked her the next night for a dinner party on their yacht.

We spent two days with Sugar Adventures. We highly recommend seeing all the sights and Sugar & Ophelia will take great care of you! We went north up to Compass Cay one day (pigs, iguanas, sharks, grotto) and south to Little Exuma & Sandy Point. You will see some of the most amazing natural beauty on these trips - we highly recommend!

Our favorite restaurant was Tropic Breeze (Little Exuma). Chat n Chill is a must! Exuma is not a commercialized island. It is a place of amazing natural beauty and kind locals who are eager to please you. We cannot wait to return to Exuma!

Thanks Vladi!

Review of Casa del Mar in Exumas, Bahamas

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from vacation and had a lovely stay at Casa del Mar. We shared the house with one other family. The property has two completely separate units with their own bedrooms and living room/kitchen areas, which works out well when you are sharing with another family, because everyone had their own spaces. The houses are new and modern with good-quality amenities including nice sheets, towels, pillows. The kitchen is extremely well-stocked with lots of good quality appliances (blender, coffee machine), lots of glasses and dishes. Everything is clean, new and of good quality. The pool is on the smaller side but the kids didn't care, and there were lots of seating areas around the pool. The house sits on the most magnificent beach just a few steps away. Tar Bay is truly beautiful, and our kids would spend several hours walking down the beach, exploring and playing on the rocks close to the entrance to the beach. They had fun in the waves, and there was a kayak at the house which the kids loved.

A few quibbles - we were under the impression the house was a four bedrooms with two convertible family room/bedrooms. This is a bit of a misnomer. The family rooms can not be considered bedrooms. They had no privacy doors and there was a small uncomfortable futon in the room, and nowhere to put away anything. Two of our kids slept there, but to access the upstairs dining room/kitchen you had to walk right by the sleeping bed since there were no doors. You can't really consider them bedrooms. Also the kitchen/living room area upstairs was a real pain. I am guessing it was done for the view, but it's not worth the inconvenience of having to cart all groceries upstairs, and then all food and dishes downstairs through the bedrooms if you want to eat a meal outside, and then back upstairs for washing. It would make much, much more sense to have the living areas on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs.

We had a few issues with the internet - it didn't work for three days, but the owner was professional and offered to reimburse us data roaming charges we had incurred since we did not have roaming plans as we assumed we had internet. The island internet is very unreliable so don't count on WIFI and buy a plan.

All in all though we really had a lovely stay at Casa del Mar. I love how clean and modern everything was, although it would be better if the house design were inversed and the bedrooms had closed doors. I would return happily here.

Casa del Mar is located directly on a spectacular stretch of beach that is centrally located on the Island just 5 minutes from the International Airport (GGT) yet has remained relatively undiscovered and unspoiled.

Guests at Casa del Mar have the privilege of residing on one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the Caribbean on an Island that is unique for its clear, warm turquoise waters, untouched beaches, friendly people and casual lifestyle. Exuma has easy access to the US and Canada, yet is far away from the crowds of tourists and overly commercial development found elsewhere in the Bahamas and other Caribbean Islands.
