Overview

Bahamas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, on upper floor of two story building, sleeps 2.

The Tree House is located in Old Hooper's Bay, a secluded private development on Great Exuma. This small neighborhood has it's own private beach, a few minutes walk from the cottage, with great snorkeling just off shore.

The Tree House is air-conditioned, has one bedroom with queen-bed and sea view, fully-equipped kitchen, bath with walk-in shower, and laundry facilities. The living area leads to a lovely balcony, with a fabulous view of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond. The Tree House is the upper floor of a two story building (the lower floor is our own personal storage space) and thus has a stunning view of Hooper's Bay. Perfect for one couple, this cottage is available for rental separately, or in conjunction with Mayaguana House for larger groups. (See Mayaguana House listing on VBRO.)

If you would like the vacation of a lifetime, check our 'Tree House' out, you will not be disappointed!

About Pam

I have been coming to Exuma since 1969. It is still the wonderful island that I discovererd that year. Sure, a few things have changed. Instead of drinking Tang like the astronauts, we can now buy orange juice. Instead of driving to George Town to make a phone call, we now have land line phones, cell phones and internet! But the charm of the island remains the same. The water is still turquoise, the beaches still pristine, the Exumians still friendly and kind hearted. Am I biased? Probably! Do I love it? Yes! And you will, too, after spending time here.

Why Pam chose Bahamas

Whereas many of the homes are located right on the Queen's Highway, which runs along the island on the east side, our home is located in Old Hooper's Bay. Old Hooper's Bay is conveniently situated just 5 miles from George Town, BUT it is a 30 acre compound reached by our private road from the highway. You must drive in, up and over a significant verdant hill to reach the main section of the compound. This 1/4 mile distance provides a luxurious insulator from the traffic on the Queen's Highway. Plus our views of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond are spectacular! The private road deters wanderers. The Old Hooper's Beach Park is shared by the 9 homes in the compound. No worries about over-crowding! We are very blessed!

Highly Recommend The Tree House

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Pam or The Tree House. Pam responded to all my inquiries very quickly, and had pages upon pages of helpful information available that we used to do the majority of planning for our week in the Exumas. The house is located extremely centrally - its just a short drive from the airport, to grocery and liquor stores, and George Town. Wake up every morning to see the Caribbean sunrise over the sea, and then spend the day at the (VERY private) Old Hoopers Bay beach, where you will likely not see another person, and the snorkeling is absolutely fantastic.

The Tree House has everything you need and more - washer/dryer, every kitchen accoutrement you can think of, coffee pot, fantastic balcony, AC, fans, and wi-fi. It was perfectly clean when we arrived. We were very comfortable and would highly recommend this property - we're so grateful that we found it and were able to stay here. Thank you Pam - we hope to come back one day.

Exuma is the real deal - stunning, stunning water, islands, and cays. Just be sure to bring Off! repellent everywhere you go (mosquitoes are bad but Deet works immediately), more sunscreen than you think you'll need, and plan for lotssss of time between flight connections to and from the island :)

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent nine days at the Tree House. If you are looking for a place to completely relax, chill-out, and just "watch the flowers grow" then Exuma, and especially the Tree House, is the place for you. Simple, but very comfortable accommodation with everything that you will need, and just a few minutes walk to a virtually private sandy beach. Local shopping for all the essentials is nearby, but you will need a car - we used Berlies, and they were fine. I can only say ....... we plan to go again!!

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and beautiful place. About 2 minute walk to perfect, secluded beach. Lovely place - just like on VRBO photos.

Air conditioned. And Pam with her husband are very friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed. Nothing more to say. Paradise.

Beautiful house, quiet relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Tree House, it was exactly what my wife and I needed. The photos accurately portray the property as a quiet, lovely structure perfect for a secluded getaway for two. While its quite possible to just wile away your time doing nothing other than reading a book and admiring the view from the balcony, exploring Exuma is highly recommended and for that a rental car is needed. We recommend Thompson's who we've used on numerous occasions and have never let us down. Are they cheap? No, but that's the way things are on the island (gas is $4.50 a gallon!). There are many beaches to choose from ranging from having just a few people on them to being completely deserted but all are beautiful! take your pick! The Tree House is high on the convenience factor being close to Georgetown so supplies are easy to come by but being tucked away down a private road you feel so far away from it all. Great communication from Pam, the property was immaculately clean, I'd have absolutely no hesitation in returning or recommending it to a couple wanting quiet relaxing seclusion.

A True Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at the Tree House. We loved it and felt truly disconnected from our daily stress. The house provides everything you could possibly need. It is obvious Pam set the house up to be a true home away. Thank you. Each detail was greatly appreciated.

The island of Exuma is incredible. We felt safe during the day and night. The people are friendly and very helpful. Always a smile. A week simply isn't enough.

We will be returning. A year is so long to wait!

Tree House, Exuma - Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in Feb 2016. I found the owner to be very friendly and accommodating. The house was exactly what we hoped it would be. Small 1 bedroom / bath with laundry and kitchen & AC if you want it. The best part about the house was the location. You are close to amenities but just outside the traffic in Old Hoopers Bay. The property is tucked in away from others so there is no traffic by the house and built into a hill. The small association has a private beach with a couple coral heads out front if you just want to walk down and hang out, we never saw anyone else. The majority of the ocean facing side is windows or sliding doors so with an elevated deck you woke up to the sunrise over the ocean every morning surrounded by lush trees and flowering vines. A few resident peacocks were also fun to see daily. We ate breakfast on the deck every morning where the only sound you heard was birds, ocean, and breeze with the occasional plane of course. The house was clean and comfortable. Zero bugs or other creatures living with you, which is no big deal but is common on other islands. Did have Direct TV if you get the odd rainy evening. The internet was typical island style, it works when it wants too, but more often than not it worked just fine not that I really wanted to check a few emails anyway. Working house phone and the owners were nice enough to leave a local cell phone if you wanted to use it. We felt right at home, I really can't say enough good things about it and I suspect we will be back in the future.

Our idea of a good vacation is typically an island where we can explore by boat, bike, foot, or car and find small beaches where we are likely the only people we see all day and easy access to snorkeling (where I could spend days on end). We normally couldn't care less if there are restaurants, prefer to avoid hotels etc. Naturally, the out islands are a good place for us. We found Exuma to be a great mix of convenience (good airport, grocery access, car, restaurants, relatively inexpensive gas etc), social activity if you want a few boat tours or you are a resort type, and if you want to disappear on the beach or do your own thing you can easily do that too. Boat rentals at Minn' in town is a great convenience, they are in great condition (which is usually rare on the outer islands) and give you access to the barrier islands to hang on the beach, snorkel, or hit the Chat N Chill if you want.
