About the property

3-Bedroom (Sleeps 8) With Access To The Sea And A Heated Fresh-Water Pool.

Seabreeze Lodge is located on Bonefish Flats in Great Exuma. Step into the sea from the property or use our heated, freshwater swimming pool. It is is ideal for 2 families or groups of fishermen. Located on the water of Bonefish Flats in Great Exuma, wade into the water and start fishing. We offer 5-star, luxury private accommodation in the most beautiful setting.

The Lodge has three bedrooms - two king-size beds and a room with 2 double bunks. The property is high-spec, modern and clean.

We have a permanent caretaker, Joanes, who can be at your service as often or as little as you want. He will pick you up from the airport, introduce you to the house and show you how things work. He can prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner... organise boat and car hire, fishing trips or guides. In fact anything you need, Joanes can arrange it.

About James Robertson

I'm James and this is my family - swimming 5 yards away from Seabreeze Lodge. We live in Wimbledon, England. I publish DJ Mag and Karen is a chief pharmacist. We try to visit Great Exuma at least once a year. We absolutely love it, and you will too.

James Robertson purchased this lodge in 2013

Why James Robertson chose Bahamas

My father bought a plot of land in the 1960s in Great Exuma. The plot was advertised in The Times. Until this year he had never seen his plot.

A few years ago I was in Miami at a conference with my wife, we decided it would be fun to visit this mysterious piece of land, that I had heard so much about during my childhood. When I was in Great Exuma my father rang to ask if I would also visit his cousins' plot of land south of George Town. When we got there, it was breath-taking. The plot was on the sea, the sun was setting and there was something absolutely magical about the place.

On returning back to England I made an offer to my father's cousins to buy the land. It took five years for them to agree, but in 2012 I became the proud owner of a 1/4 acre piece of land in the middle of the Caribbean.

On January 1st 2013 we started building and in August 2014 we took our first family holiday in Seabreeze Lodge. It was fabulous.

What makes this lodge unique

1. Secluded, but secure.

2. Unbelievable views.

3. Heated fresh-water pool (I don't know of any other heated pools on the Island), in Summer its not necessary, but in Winter it definitely is.

4. An emergency generator - Great Exuma, does suffer power cuts, but our generator could power a small city!

5. Excellent air-con.

6. Clear skies - not a plane in sight (or in earshot)

7. A boat ramp - to launch a boat, kayak or simply walk into the sea.

8. Wifi

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The house is gorgeous and the setting is perfect. The view from the porch is so lovely and being able to hike out to the islands in front of the house at low tide was a favorite activity. The house is very well equipped and comfortable, so much so that it was hard to pry our son away to visit different areas of the island. The sea kayak was a highlight and we made good use of it. The sound system in the house and also at the pool is a really great feature, and made spending time in the pool (which is heated!) a pleasure. Joanes, the caretaker, was a real help to us and very attentive. When we return to Exuma we would book here again without hesitation. Thanks for everything, it was better than expected!

Magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

Property is just as described. Remote enough to be private yet not feel alone. The view is spectacular from the rear of the home overlooking the majestic bay. The heated pool was ideal as we spent a few days at the Sandals resort prior to staying at Seabreeze and the unheated pool was too cold for anyone to use in January. We did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen was very well stocked with all the necessary tools. The owner has made every effort to ensure things run smoothly as we had a few power failures during very calm weather and the generator kicked in immediately. Water was never a problem as they have a well and onsite desalinization system. One small issue is that the furniture in living room is not comfortable for watching TV, that being said how much TV are you watching while in paradise.

Amazing in every way

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend. Make sure you rent a car- you'll need it get around the island. The house is in a very quiet, secluded area off the beaten track. The pool was a hit for the kids and adults. The view is amazing. I could go on and on!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Sea Breeze Lodge is awesome! Everything we had hoped for and more. On the water with a pool, our own private oasis..... Every thing in the visitors manual was spot on! We had an amazing vacation,.... hanging out at the house, venturing to Exuma Point (to swim with the pig! be sure to talk to Elvis!), boating across to Stocking Island (feeding sting-ray) and all the other places recommended. Truly the best!!!!

It's hurricane proof & amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, modern & has everything you need! We had the misfortune of being there during Hurricane Joaquin. The wind was crazy strong, and the power was on & off for days. The generator came on automatically, so we could watch TV & cook when we couldn't be outside. The house made us feel safe and sound, no matter how hard the wind blew! During the storm, the caretaker checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. When it was finally over, he came over and cleaned up all the damaged trees and such. He was really friendly and made us feel welcome! The owner of the house let us have a couple days free, since we were stuck inside during the hurricane. He's super nice! He sent us t-shirts saying "I survived Hurricane Joaquin" & a Christmas card.

All the furnishings in the house were top of the line, and you could tell it was built with a lot of love! Every person we met in Great Exuma was so warm and friendly! It's a small island with no crime and not a tourist trap. I'm so glad we picked it after we saw the swimming pigs! It's truly breathtaking! The water is shallow and so clear. We would go stand in the water and feed the fish several times a day, and the variety and colors was unbelievable! It was definitely a vacation of a lifetime! If you go, make sure you go see the pigs, iguanas & snorkel on the tour! I was a little scared to snorkel, but it truly was magical!

My husband works for an airline, so we can go almost anywhere. When we're ready to take another vacation, we want to go back to Great Exuma! You won't be disappointed! When you're there, you feel like you're in a postcard, because everything is just stunning!! I'll never forget this vacation, not just because we survived a hurricane!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a trip to Exuma, and our stay at Seabreeze Lodge. We could not have loved it more. First off, James is wonderful to deal with. He responds right back to you, and when you get to the Villa, you can see how much pride they take in their house. Everything is absolutely top notch. Joanes also is fantastic to deal with. He could not be more professional, welcoming or accommodating during your trip. This is the third villa we have rented in Exuma (in a year), yes we love it there, and it was by far our favorite. The kitchen is perfect. Well stocked, well organized. We cooked a ton. The market is well stocked and easily accessible. If you fly in on a Sunday, they have limited hours, so just be mindful of that. The bedrooms are all the same size, and even the bunk room has two huge queens. The upper patio is way bigger than it looked in pictures. We spent so much time out there shaded form the sun. There are chairs and a wonderful little couch that I could have read on all day. Many times when we have been to Exuma we have wanted to leave the house and see beaches and do so much, but we all loved the house so much, we had to make ourselves leave. The pool absolutely tops it off. It is so nice to jump in a freshwater pool. One of my favorite things about the house was the neighbor's dogs that come to visit. We were with another couple who are total animal lovers too, so we adored it, but if you don't particularly like dogs, don't worry. If you don't show them much attention, they will be off to see other people in the neighborhood. Their names are Scooby, a little Jack Russel who is 11, and Bandit, who is a boxer mix, and he is 2. They are total loves, but again if you don't care for dogs, do not feel threatened, and just don't pay them much attention. If you are, you make a friend for life. We went bone fishing and had great luck. Garth Thompson is very good. We took a water taxi over to St. Francis Hotel on stocking island and had a great lunch and went over to the Atlantic side and jumped waves. Very different than the harbour. We rented a boat from Minns, and snorkeled and went to sand bars, and saw turtles and starfish. The list is endless. I want to keep Exuma my own little secret, but it is just so fantastic I can't! Thank you again James, family, and Joanes! Hope to see you sooner rather than later!

Seabreeze Lodge is set in the most amazing setting. Isolated, but secure, the lodge is located directly on the sea front with views of the sea and cays. A boat ramp leads directly into the sea. Hunt bonefish from the lodge, or set sail from from the property.
