Exuma House Rental Photos and Description

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Amazingly relaxing and serene

  • 5 of 5

Let me start this review with the fact that my family and I just went to Tahiti for what was supposed to be a two week vacation. I am here to say Tahiti has NOTHING on the Exumas. I would recommend the Bahamas over Tahiti any day.

We have been to the Exumas many times. Each time it seems to get better. This trip was for the sole purpose of relaxation and visiting friends who live among the other islands. We could not have picked a better spot. I have not felt that stress free in over a year.

The care taker, Gage, met us at Staniel and picked us up by boat. I knew the island was nice as I have been near it but never on it. It exceeded my expectations on so many levels. First, the island has so many hidden treasures and beaches. The beach that the house sits on is one of the prettiest and secluded. There is a sea-glass beach, a treasure beach(lots of interesting things wash ashore), sunset beach and the dock area. Atop a hill a short walk from the house you can sit in the gazebo contemplating life all day long.

The house had 4 spacious bedrooms that had great beds. A/C in all of the rooms (a requirement for my hubby) and ocean breeze through the main part of the house. The kitchen was very well appointed. We did a lot of cooking and entertaining. I have a 5 year old who thought that it was better than Disney World being there. Never a dull moment. There is wifi however we all UNPLUGGED from social media and work in general naturally.

The house is simple but beyond perfect and we did NOT want to leave!!!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of enjoying five days of bliss on Little Majors Spot in the company of both friends and clients. We were each impressed with the cleanliness of the beach house and the quality of the bedding and overwhelmed by the surrounding beauty and beaches. The views from the back deck looking out over Love Beach are one of a kind. We were an eclectic group each with different needs and somehow Little Majors managed to fulfill all of them. The local guides made sure we caught more than enough fish and we were provided a great balance of care and privacy throughout our stay. I will return and my client booked his family for the following month. This is a true slice of heaven as anyone would imagine heaven to be.

Owner's Response: Thank you D for your very generous remarks and, as for our discussion regarding a fish cleaning table, plans are in the works. Bone Fish Slick will be pleased no doubt. We loved having you here and look forward to welcoming you ashore again next year. Until then, enjoy Gage

Left the world behind and found paradise

  • 5 of 5

There may be no greater spot in all of the world to escape from the crazy world and find true happiness! My kids unplugged their phone and picked up a book. Instead of driving to sporting events, we enjoyed the majestic beauty of the Exumas and snorkeled among the most amazing sea life I have ever seen. The house was perfect...simple yet elegant. The area of the Exumas, including the neighboring islands of Staniel Cay, enabled us to meet some of the kindest and light hearted people in the world. Gage Parrot, as our tour guide and the host on the island is one of a kind and made the trip one that we will remember forever. A most do for families or just a group of friends

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.
