About the property

Disconnect then reconnect with family and friends on your own private island

Little Majors Spot is a 100 acre private cay situated in the magical, world renowned waters of the Exumas. The white sand grains of her three secluded and serene beaches host tidal waters that are a gift to the mind and body.

The Great House is located above the dunes of Love Beach, a perfectly sculpted horseshoe beach that stretches 240 meters. Elevated four meters above sea level, guests are afforded 360⁰ views and island breezes that pour through open windows from any direction. The four bedroom two bath home is cozy enough for two and grand enough for up to eight family members or friends. The great room offers eight person dining, a breakfast bar, full kitchen and a four meter sliding door showcasing one of the most spectacular views in all the Bahamas. Powered by the sun and hydrated by the rains Little Majors is a true ecological get away spot but with all the comforts of home. The two gazebos, multiple foot paths and her covered dock, create room for everyone to disconnect in their own space or, gather together and reconnect.

From Little Majors you can get This Way in less than six minutes and That Way in just five. Enjoy her surrounding reefs, go wade with the swimming pigs or dive in Thunder Ball Grotto, all just over four minutes away. For dinner, stay at home or enjoy fine Dining at Fowl Cay Resort or Staniel Cay Yacht Club and great local fare at Taste and Sea, each of which are just five minutes away. It is just five minutes to anywhere but you may just wish to go nowhere after setting foot on Little Majors Spot.

Arrive in your boat or let us source one for you. Our dock offers shallow water drafts up to 1 meter. Provisioning, culinary services, housekeeping, massage and fishing guides are just a few of the additional services we can arrange for you. We look forward to having you.

About Gage Parrot

Little Majors Spot is owned and loved by a woman. She is a matriarch within her family which includes fifteen grand children and, to the community, whom have nicknamed her, Gutsy Lady. For over twenty years the family has visited here to connect with one another and the locals they have come to love. To disconnect with the world and explore all that the Exumas has to offer. To reignite the adventurer within or settle back into the quietude of a private island.

Why Gage Parrot chose Bahamas

Why a private island?

Dance on edges. Stretch. Listen in on shells. Put living things back. Cultivate quiet. Boogie. Practice simplicity. Sugar yourself with sand. Float. Carry a bucket. Go with the wind. Walk tender. Respect. Leave no wake. Tune up your senses. Build castles and leave them for the moon to find. Run with waves. Discover treasure. Remember yourself. Keep off the rocks. Ebb and flow. Laugh like a gull. Thank. *Gingras.

Paradise Awaits

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, never been on a secluded Island before, nor the Bahamas, and didn't really know what to expect. From the beginning thou, I knew we were in good hands with very clear and organized instructions, guidance and planning from our host, Gage. We stayed there for a month, as a sabbatical of sorts, and at first were a little concerned about becoming stir crazy, but that couldn't have been further from our experience.

This was was more than a vacation, it was an opportunity to spend QUALITY time as a family. Everything from reading, paddle boarding, kayaking, cooking, baking, visiting close in and remote Islands to discover all the riches and beauty of the Exumas (fish, reef, turtles, shells, sandbars, pigs, Iguana's, local coconut bread, etc).

We travelled as three adults and two toddlers and had family members in and out on the weekends. The house is extremely cozy and the Island has several beaches that each provide their own unique and interesting qualities. We really got into the spirit of the Island by following the moon phases, tide schedules, and mindful consumption of electricity and water as an Islander would/should. With that said, we had every convenience (if we chose it use it) from nonstop water and electricity, A/C, Wi-Fi, VHF, Satellite Radio, blenders, grill, TV, huge collection of games and books, etc. Although our best memories are the peaceful quiet moments . . .

Few recommendations from Gage that I'm thankful we followed. 1) We rented a boat, with zero boating experience, and within a few days we were Island hopping with ease. 2) We brought our dog, highly encouraged by Gage, and it really enriched our experience.

To sum up our experience and to the homeowner and host's credit, we never actually felt like we were renting a home, but rather joining an extended family.

Owner's Response: Justin we couldn't have been happier to have you with us for an extended visit and now, as extended family. We have been fortunate to have so many of our guests connect with our hideaway amongst hideaways and your clan settled in and connected with the culture and environment here like no other. We encourage this above all and find it very satisfying when people know they have all the immediate comforts of home at their disposal yet step out of their mental comfort zones and learn just how rewarding it can be to live conservatively. We wish you the best and look forward to seeing you and yours and of course Moby, again very soon. Thank you

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

For our 25th anniversary, we wanted to do something different. We decided to find a deserted island in paradise. Little did we know that we'd actually discover exactly that!

The house was beautiful, relaxing, well-stocked and lacking nothing. The beach is beyond beautiful and we could have simply sat on that back porch or in the living room for hours just staring at the view. There was always so much to do, that we could have stayed another week and still not seen all of it.

But the most important part of the entire vacation, which made it wonderful, was Gage the caretaker of the home. He was always readily available to help explain things, always ready with a smile and a kind word, and had the best advice for local guides and sites to see. He even went out of his way to help when we had some issues with a boat we had rented, and was kind enough to take us to a snorkel spot we had missed on our last day. We can't say enough about him and this wonderful place.

Finally, as we began our flight home, I knew it had been a success when my wife quietly cried for half the flight as she was sad to be leaving. Having vacationed in many countries and different places, I've NEVER seen her actually cry from not wanting to leave.

This was the first time on a vacation when we didn't say "I can't wait to get home".

Suffice to say, we WILL be back many more times to refresh ourselves and our busy lives.

Thanks for having us Gage!

Tough to get to but worth the trip

  • 5 of 5

The Exumas are a hidden gem for those who have never been. If you seek nightlife, this is not your spot but those who love the outdoors, boating and sandy beaches, this is a place for you. The Island has everything you need. Kayaks, paddle boards, snorkelling right off of the house. Gage was a great host and guide. He will help you set up anything you need. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and the like. Clearly, entertaining in the home is the norm. The only negative I would say is that the Wifi is spotty but I understand this is something they are working on. We went in July and it was HOT!

Best Family Vacation EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this family vacation was not the spectacularly clear warm water, nor the stunningly beautiful deserted beaches, nor the boating that made me feel like a teenager again. Nor was it swimming with dozens of tame nurse sharks a short boat ride away, nor the enormous but friendly wild pigs on the next island over. It was the feeling of seclusion and privacy with just my whole family, kids, grandchildren and partners/spouses, to connect in an authentic magical setting. Gage, our "host" is somewhere between an adventure guide, a concierge, a magician and friend.

This home and island was way above my normal budget, but totally worth it on many levels, and we will definitely return!

fabulous family time

  • 5 of 5

A great time, completely away from the busy business life in the states, and anybody else for that matter. Island is secluded enough to really spend some quality family time whether that is exploring, kayaking, boating, collecting shells, reading, or just lying on one of your own private beaches. House provides all the needed amenities without going overboard on frivolous luxuries. Caretaker on island is great, close enough when you need him but far enough away to feel like there is nobody else around. Fairly easy to make travel arrangements into Nassau and then to the island with only about four hours from the time we left the snow in Philadelphia until we were on the beach in front of the house. Much easier and quieter than our trip last year to St. John in the USVI. Will definitely be back to the Bahamas again.
