About the property

Sleeps 12 - 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms On Its Own Private Beach!

This 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Villa has beautiful oceanfront views and a private beach. You will enjoy beautifully appointed bathrooms with tile showers, separate tubs and double vanities that have been completely renovated in 2016. There is a very large fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dining area with seating for 12. You can also choose to eat outdoors at the table on the covered porch.

Relax with family and friends in the large den with comfortable seating while admiring the ocean views. Watch TV if you find time away from the water. Wifi, Netflix, Apple TV are also included. Rest assured with the recent addition of a second air conditioning unit you will be very comfortable in every room of the house. A full house automatic generator is our newest addition to offset those unexpected island power outages. You won't even know the power went out.

Wash the salt away after relaxing on your beach with water from our brand new state of the art fresh water system. The system provides pure drinking and bathing water throughout the property. (not something you always find in island locations). Enjoy the large covered patio while relaxing on chaise lounges or rocking chairs.

What sets The Cut Pearl apart is the spacious luxury and views. This is the most relaxing place in the world free from crowds and distractions. The beach fluctuates according to the tides and the winds.

4 Kayaks are provided with snorkel gear and life jackets. Spend your day fishing, diving, snorkeling, boating, hiking or just exploring the most incredible beaches you will ever see. If you weren't able to book activities in advance our property manager can assist you to make your stay the most memorable one. They can help you book various excursions you will never forget!

The manager can also arrange onsite Bahamian prepared meals in the villa. Menu available upon request.

You can pre-order groceries with a $100 stocking fee. (advisable as grocery and liquor store hours can be limiting).

A Beautiful Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a friend getting married at one of the houses close to the Cut Pearl so we rented the house for a week and had an amazing time. The house is as advertised amazing views and has everything you need including kayaks which we took to some of near-by islands. The team that supports the house did a great job taking car of us as well arringing rides, boat outings and a lovely dinner for our friends. Thanks for everything!

True rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious home with excellent amenities (all the usual ones plus 2 washers/dryers, swim noodles, beach chairs) and a gorgeous, wide view. Be sure to walk over at low tide to the beach just north of the one behind the house. It is larger and more secluded. Communication and coordination with Andy and Winky were seamless. Thank you!

Wonderful home & location

  • 5 of 5

The Cut Pearl was one of the nicest homes we have rented, ever. We stayed there mid March, 2017. The furnishings were top notch, the layout of the home is so nice and perfect for 4 couples to have plenty of privacy, the kitchen had everything we needed and more, the outside furniture was great, and we loved the beach and quiet area. I really can't say enough good things, it really was awesome. We didn't use the kayaks, but did use the snorkel gear and one of their 3 nice sized coolers on our Minn's boat day (saw starfish, sand dollars, conch shells, queen conch, fish, etc.). Winky stopped by a couple of times to check on us, and we met his son Theo (Teo?) who was set to captain our Minn's boat for us, but because the boat we rented had a max capacity of 8, that fell through. He gave us some good tips though and helped us find the right day to rent a boat (it was pretty windy most of our 5 days on the island). I would stay in this house again if we have the opportunity. It's in an area of maybe 5 homes right on the beach. The views are amazing, and the water was wonderful for swimming. The kitchen is very large and accommodated several of us working in there at the same time. We had no wifi - no fault to the owner as it was out pretty much all over the island. We did have a generator kick in several times while the neighbors lost power. A/C and ceiling fans kept the house plenty cool, beds comfortable, huge closets with plenty of hangers, bathrooms gorgeous, beautifully decorated, etc. Thanks much Andy & Loren, it was above and beyond WONDERFUL!

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.

Exceeded all of our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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 Forbes Hill

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.
