About Analia Whitehead
We are a Bahamian family! We built the Marina House as a way to enjoy this spectacular place and have never regretted our decision for one second. All our guests love the spot from the moment the enter the house.
Analia Whitehead purchased this House in 2015
Why Analia Whitehead chose Hartswell
Its part of a fabulous development, Foster Hill, where Exuma can be enjoyed how it should be, in comfort but close to nature.
What makes this House unique
Its closeness to the water, its privacy, its quietness. Marina House encompasses luxury and comfort, while still embracing the laid back lifestyle of Exuma, napping on the deck watching friends and family jumping of the dock, hand-line fishing, paddle boarding or snorkeling, at night being able to whip up a gourmet style meal in the fully loaded kitchen.

Unforgettable week+ in Exuma
We had an amazing time at the Marina House. The house is beautiful, clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We kayaked and paddle boarded to the islands and snorkeled around the Marina. The greatest abundance of fish were right under the docks in front of the house. The resident puffer fish was there during the snorkel adventures.
We spent many evenings watching the sunset on the beach. The trees on the path have been perfectly lit to add to the surreal experience.
We visited the Tropic of Cancer Beach, Santana’s and Mama’s Bakery, which is all very close to the house. Spent two days on Stocking Island - with high praise for the Conch salad.
Roberts Adventures took us to many of the local attractions including the Pigs, Iguanas, Sharks, Grotto and an amazing lunch buffet on an island.
Our stay was so incredible we added two days.
Thanks to Martin for the grocery shopping before we arrived. This helped us settle in quickly.
If you’re looking for a place to relish the beauty and solitude of Exuma, look no further!
The property was beautiful
The property is very well thought out and gorgeous. The kitchen well appointed and furnishings very comfortable; the property was everything we expected. I loved how those who stayed up late or woke up early did not hear the commotion outside or even inside.... house built very well.
Martin brought us water each day for drinking and made sure we were comfortable; he was fabulous. You will be charged if you go through more than two containers of water.
I felt the following could be improved:
1. Prior to renting the owners boat for a minimum of 4 days, it would have been appropriate to warn us of the shallow waters and, even as boat captains, who know how to read charts etc, there was not many places to take the boat.
2. Albeit the property was private and beautiful, anytime the group of 6-10 went out, it was $100-$130 for round trip. (we all enjoy cocktails so a rental car would not have sufficed)
3. The two bedrooms on the west side of the house share an air conditioner, the hall was very cold, the bedroom on the left was comfortable but the two queen room was always hot.
4. We were there wednesday to Wednesday; mid week clean was performed on Monday.... probably shouldve been saturday or Sunday.
5. Albeit we had bug spray, many in our group were severely affected by the "no-see-ums"
Marina House - Exuma
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay
1-25-2020 thru 2-1-2020. The Marina House was absolutely fabulous. Everything exceeded our expectations. The owners , Sandra & Peter Whitehead were very gracious in working with us during the deposits and final payments via VRBO and Pay Pal so we could use our credit card and gave us a comfort level as we had not been here before. Our concerns were quickly removed once we started communicating with Sandra via e-mails. She sent us information on the property, the town, transportation, shopping, restaurants and things to do. Everything she described and told us was spot on.
The boat rental was easy to handle but has to be in cash or wire transfer, again it was seamless.
The property manager, Martine, was awesome, and handled literally anything we needed, from our pre-arrival grocery shopping, fuel ,water, minor repairs , whatever we needed.
Sandra recommended an local lady to come and cook for us if desired, Nola Adderly . What a treat . We her to come in on (2) evenings .
We discussed the menu and she gave us a price per person and she did all of the shopping and brought the support staff and handled everything, even went to a bakery and had a Birthday - Carrot Cake made for our daughter’s
40th birthday. We had a group of (12) and it was amazing to be able to all eat at one time and never have to leave the house. The home is set up to handle (12) easily with the (2) guest suites.
The property, facilities, private beach, kayaks, paddle boards, personal boat and Martine were truly spectacular. The trips to Chat and Chill via Elvis’ Water Taxi, to Little Exuma to Mama’s Bakery and Santana’s Restaurant , BLU’s Restaraunt (Owner - Samantha Wong ) were so special - each provided their own special memories. Words cannot do this justice.
The people here are truly genuine. Peter,
I am a commercial general contractor and I understand you and your sons are also. Your expertise , quality and eye for details is impeccable and it truly shows here!!
Sandra and Peter, thank you so much , we will definitely return soon.
Great place to stay!
We had a great time, Exuma’s is a beautiful place. This is a nice property laid out well. The only downside is that the boat is overpriced and has not been taken care of well.
The property was amazing. Everything in the house was clean and comfortable. The construction on the house next door was a bit of a bother a couple of days, but we were warned of this ahead of time. We thoroughly enjoyed using the boat and exploring the cays near the house. We found a new secluded beach every day, as well as some great snorkeling. I would absolutely go back to this house. Great setup and great location.
Chat 'n' Chill is a must see, take Elvis water taxi over to Stocking Island and go for lunch and to see the tame manta rays. Take a day trip up to Staniel Cay to see the swimming pigs. Drive down to Tropic of Cancer to beach to see something extraordinary. Go snorkeling, diving, swim in the harbour you might even bump into a dolphin. Try Regatta season where you will see the handcrafted sloops in action. Or just sit in the warm wind under the gazebo and enjoy the scenery!!
