Why Gage Parrot chose Exuma
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.

Little Majors - a slice of heaven
You truly have a spectacular place here. The house looks out to what could be called one of the best views on the island. Thanks for allowing us to visit and enjoy the slice of paradise. Gage you were one hell of a host and this island is lucky to have you in its care. Thanks for being such a great host – I don’t think it would have been the same without your experienced input and suggestions! Till next time...
Dream vacation, excelent location and great attention to detail from Gage Parrot.
Amazing private island
This is the most amazing piece of paradise! Gage makes everything so easy. There are so many amazing places to see on near by islands. We can't wait to go back!!
Best vacation ever!!
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!
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.
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.
Tough to get to but worth the trip
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!
Your spot on Little Majors is located within just minutes of the now famous, swimming pigs of Pig Beach and just a five minute boat ride from Staniel Cay Airport. With daily flights from Nassau and Fort Lauderdale and multiple options to arrive via charter aircraft or boat getting here can be as easy as leaving a footprint in the sand.
