About the property

About Andy and Loren Kern

Loren and I fell in love with Exuma during our first visit in 2012. After 5 visits we decided we had truly found our favorite vacation spot. The Cut Pearl found us and we decided we wanted to share this piece of heaven with others.

Andy and Loren Kern purchased this villa in 2015

Why Andy and Loren Kern chose Bahamas

The Cut Pearl in Little Exuma is a hidden jewel. The property sits on the most secluded and beautiful ocean spot we have ever seen. The waters of the Bahamas are so clear and beautiful in every shade of blue. The people of Exuma are so hospitable and gracious. They host people from all over the world and no one is a stranger.

What makes this villa unique

The beach location is secluded and very private. The most beautiful beaches in the world are found in the Exumas. This beach is amazing and diverse with the softest sand and beautiful rock formations. The aqua blue waters will devour your thoughts and make you smile.

The property manager can arrange a private chef to prepare meals at the villa.

"The Cut Pearl" - Stunning Private Beachfront/Oceanfront Villa On Little Exuma
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned yesterday and we are already looking to see when we can return. The house was perfect for our two families. We had 11 guests and we were all very comfortable.

House was clean and Judy was very accommodating. Also, Theo winkie son also was amazing as well. Took us out to sandy cay and made fresh amazing couch salad! The lazy river was one of the prettiest place we have seen.

Definitely rent a car and if possible a jeep to help get you down some remote beach access roads. Definitely worth exploring all the small access roads. There always seemed to be another gorgeous beach at the end of the road. All and all the trip was amazing and the house was perfect for our two families.

What a wonderful home! Our time at the Cut Pearl was absolutely amazing! It was well equipped for fun and the view is spectacular! Winky and Judy were always available to answer any questions , help arrange activities, or even cook. And boy can Judy and crew cook!! The food was wonderful and everyone on the island was incredibly nice! This was a great place to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery! We have such great memories from our stay at Cut Pearl! Can't wait to get back there!! There will be many more family vacations spent on Exuma at the Cut Pearl!!

Gorgeous views...wonderful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home in many ways.

Starting with the view. Unobstructed views very close to the water and a sun deck just above the waves. We spent a lot of time on it.

Privacy is very important to us and there is plenty of that. There is no neighboring house on the right And the unit on the left is situated closer to the road. Very private!

The home itself is immaculate. It has all the finishes you would expect in an upscale home.

New appliances (2 washers and dryers), new dishware, new or newer furniture (indoor and outdoor). And most importantly a clean clean clean home!!!!

My wife and I stayed here by ourselves for a week for our anniversary. This home can easily accommodate 10 adults @ minimum. There are 2 master bedrooms. The bonus room on third floor with balcony was a nice surprise.

We saved lots of money on little things we didn't need to purchase since they were already there. Things like the toiletries that were supplied, skin so soft (for the no-seeums), ziplock bags, Paper towels, etc.

We've stayed in many VRBO properties, so these little things matter to us.

Out of all the beach properties we've stayed at, we've never seen a better supply and condition of kayaks, life jackets and snorkel gear. Unfortunately it was too windy to use, but it was refreshing to see!

We'd definitely stay here again.

There is no better house on this island than The Cut Pearl! The house is tip top shape, extremely clean, well equipped with washer/dryers (2), 4 newly renovated bathrooms each with full showers and baths. Views are stunning at their house! The Kerns are so accommodating and great to work with; great hosts! Restaurants in area are plentiful and people could not be friendlier!

Great Family Vacation at The Cut Pearl

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Cut Pearl for a week getaway with a large group of family totaling 7 adults and 2 kids. The house had ample room for everyone, it was very well equipped (much more so than other houses I've rented in the Bahamas) and we had a great time. It was both described accurately and well represented by the pictures in the ad, and was also clean and well maintained. In fact, the caretaker's sister came to clean the entire house midweek.

The owner Andy, was very communicative and friendly regarding the property, and a couple very minor plumbing issues we had during our stay were handled with startling speed via the caretaker Winky. I'm sure that between Andy and Winky, any problem a guest could have with the Cut Pearl, would be handled very quickly if our experience was any indication.

I would recommend this property to anyone with a large group, looking to getaway to a very picturesque, quiet stretch of beach with a new and well equipped house. The only advice I would give to customers of the Cut Pearl would be to talk to Winky regarding their excursions before booking with people on the island. He has much more local knowledge than most of the people offering fishing, spearing, island trips, groceries (which can be challenging to get everything on your list) etc in the area and was a great resource for our entire stay.

Make sure you check out Santana's, Tropic of Cancer Beach, and if you like conch salad, we got lucky with a local at the fish fry named "Steve" who has a waitlist of weeks sometimes, even with the locals.

The Cut Pearl was our dream come true! Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The house was clean and spacious. Everything we needed was there. Winkie was amazing along with his sister, Judy and her staff. They quickly became part of our family and made sure our stay was comfortable and attended to our every need immediately. Judy, Ann, and their family laughed and danced with us, made a bonfire on the beach for us one night, played with and loved on our children...they made our week PERFECT and we miss them already! The island was exactly what we wanted. We were away from it all and had the entire beach to ourselves everyday. The beach was AMAZING. White sand and clear turquoise water as far as the eye could see! Our excursions were the best as well. Stop by Turquoise Cay and Santana's for fresh seafood. You MUST visit Sandy Cay, The Exuma Sandbars, Chat N Chill on Stocking Island, Staniel Cay, Iguana Cay, and Thunderball Grotto. I could go on and on about how wonderful it was...thanks to Dean, Andy, Winkie, Judy and the rest of their family for making our dream vacation become reality! We will never forget our experience at The Cut Pear!!! Looking forward to our next visit to Little Exuma!!!
