Michele De'Ath purchased this House in 2013
Why Michele De'Ath chose Moss Town
From a blind date to a 20 year journey, Howard and I have survived many ups and downs. We are best friends and this has carried us through parenthood and life as entrepreneurs. Having a Beach House in Exuma has been a dream come true! It took many years of hard work and still more hard work to come. We wanted to have a place where all of our kids and grandkids would be happy to play and create wonderful memories.
What makes this House unique
Dillycrab magic happened! The first time we were just renting like you. I woke up to the sunrise spreading its glory over the ocean without even lifting my head off the pillow. With coffee in hand, I lay in the hammock on the porch and watched the ocean in every shade of blue and turquoise while little birds in the palm trees were singing away, a dove cooing in the nearby tree, the gentle warm salt air caressing my skin..I was in Love. I was in Paradise! There are 65 palm trees that create an island oasis.( Love the sound of palm fronds rustling in the breeze.. and the oceans music from every room in the house.) Right in front of the property is a beautiful island you can paddle out to, sailboats in the distance. It is like a picture book. I have travelled to a lot of Caribbean islands but I have never experienced such turquoise water and such white soft sand. I also have never experience what it is like to have a 3km Beach to wander, lucky to see another soul.. never hassled and feeling safe as a woman to walk alone....This made me fall deeper in love.. I can not even tell you about how much fun and family bonding time we have experience sipping cool drinks floating in the pool..I never thought before Exuma that that would become one of my favourite things to do! There is sun as well as shade from palms on the pool deck for all day pleasure. What is great with a family at Dillycrab are fun spots and quiet spots and spots to feel alone with a good book and spots to play together.. it is like your own mini resort, lots to do or nothing to do. As you can see we LOVE Dillycrab.

Loved it! The house is great!! Views are beautiful! It rained an entire day we were there, we could sit on the covered upper deck watch the storm roll in and hear the ocean waves! It was 2 days before we saw another person on the beach. Michele was great to work with.
What an absolutely breathtaking piece of property you have. It was everything we expected. The home was beautiful and cozy. We had two families. 4 adults and 4 kids from 7-13. The house was perfect size.The pool was perfect and the ocean view and beach was amazing. Desereen did our grocery shopping before we got there since we would be in after the stores closed. She was very helpful. Michele was amazing from the day I booked the trip. Answered any questions, had many great suggestions for us to make the vacation more fun. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was one we will always remember.

Very Happy you had a great time here in Exuma and ESPECIALLY happy to hear you loved staying at Dillycrab. I hope the extra room worked out well, you were a big group. The Kids must have loved the pool!!! Please come back and stay with us again!!! AND YES WHAT AN AMAZING BEACH WE ARE ON!!!
*VOTED BEST BEACH!
Thank you Mother Nature for coming up with the colour Turquoise!!!!!
Wonderful place, felt like staying with family!
We LOVED Michele and the Dillycrab House! They went above and beyond to make the stay as comfortable as possible with everything from stocking our fridge with grocery items before we got there, to giving us lots of great advice for things to see, to providing an amazing house for us! They thought of everything, even chip clips and coffee grinder and coolers and beach chairs! View from the deck was amazing, and we really enjoyed the morning sunrise view from the Master Bedroom. Location was great, we loved hanging at the beach and also loved the pool, which was protected from the wind. Overall great experience, can't recommend enough!
Loved that you Loved Dillycrab. It really is a great family cottage to run away too...3 lonely socks waiting for your return!! Ha ha..love you to visit us again...
All the best to you and your Family...and the rabbit back home! I think there is more than one rabbit in your family ....Hmmmm...
Good time—lovely place to stay. Pleasant and helpful owner who knows the island very well and who shares this knowledge with renters
I think, considering you are two older gentlemen in your late 70’s who really just wanted a lovely spot to read, may not have enjoyed the games room with PING PONG and POOL TABLE or EXCERCISE EQUIPMENT very much and I understand you did not use the SWIMMING POOL at all or the 3 KAYAKS, body boards or 100’s of dvd’s since you unplugged wifi and Direct TV ..so maybe a much SIMPLER accommodation would have suited you both much better.
Also having the main living area on the second floor gave you stairs to climb but this house design gives the best vantage point for a FANTASTIC OCEAN VIEW.
We are geared for FAMILIES and or agile COUPLES who will utilize ALL we have to offer...
Perfect Place to Reconnect
From the moment we arrived, it was clear we had made the right choice for a much needed family vacation. This is a beach HOME and not just another beach house rental. The beautiful grounds scream "welcome". Inside decor is so charming and every need has been contemplated by the owner including the downstairs game room which provided for hours of "friendly" competition at the billiards table. View of the water from the upper level is to die for. The beach that is within steps of the home can only be described as glorious and there are no words that could ever accurately describe the beautiful water colors. Outside the home we found the people of Exuma to be very inviting, friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the boat tour for snorkeling and swimming with the sharks and pigs and making the trip over to the Chat and Chill for the pig roast on Sundays...so yummy! Also, we really enjoyed the trip to little Exuma to see the Tropic of Cancer beach (amazingly beautiful) and sample Mom's bakery treats. Michele was terrific to work with and leaves you knowing that she genuinely wants you to have the best travel experience possible. Thank you so much for sharing Dillycrab with us!
Ahhh thanks for the lovely words!!! We Loved having you in our Home...
We are not purpose built as a rental with a stark hotel atmosphere, when we rent Dillycrab, we ARE renting our HOME that is full of Love and Joy and wonderful shared memories..I personally get a great feeling of happiness when I can share that experience with another family or a family of friends. As soon as you arrive I want you to feel you are home TOO....
Love to have you back again..please think of us if you visit Exuma again!
Exuma & Dillycrab LOVE
From the moment I started communicating with Michele, the home owner, it could not have been better experience. You can tell her passion for this place immediately and she is beyond helpful and thorough – any question I had, she would answer quickly. My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend 9 nights at Dillycrab and the house was absolutely amazing - outfitted with everything you could possibly think of. The kitchen has every dish, cup (plastic and glass), cooking utensil, & pots/pans you could ever need. They provided filtered water which is such a great touch. The linens are so yummy (sheets, pillow cases, towels- beach & bathroom) - pillows and mattress SUPER comfy. The pool is absolutely wonderful and the way they've planted vegetation creates this lovely, tropical oasis. You can lay by the pool with a cocktail, totally private and listen to waves crash. There is a terrific game room downstairs where we played ping pong.
Now let's discuss the BEACH in front of Dillycrab - unbelievable!!!! The beach is so beautiful and expansive – you can walk left or right and it is a wonderful walking beach. We felt TOTALLY safe and were normally the only ones on the entire beach. The views of the beach/ocean from the home literally take your breath away over and over. The deck, which is off of the living room was using morning/noon and night by us. It’s covered (shaded) and the views & sounds of the ocean from there are spectacular. We loved this island and home SO incredibly much that we’ve booked again in April for my birthday and our wedding anniversary. Thank you, Michele for everything!!!
Loved having you stay in our home. You were fantastic guests 5 STARS back at you!
Loved your stainless steel drinking straws in the picture on Instagram, drinking from the coconuts our pool guy opened for you. Great not to put more plastic in our world that ends up in the Ocean! I have ordered some for Dillycrab ..thanks for the idea..I am sure guests will love them.
..and yes I also think we have the BEST beach in Exuma!!!
So Glad you had a great time!
Dillycrab is 15 min away from groceries and restaurants. We are on a quiet beach with few tourists. Locals are very friendly and will never hassle you. Very respectful and welcoming.
Exuma is for those who love exploring. Lots of secluded beaches and interesting things to do.
A favorite is ChatnChill by local water taxi. There you can have great BBQ food, play a game of beach volley ball and pet and feed the Sting Ray, like puppies of the sea. You can also rent a boat from Minns Marina and head out to sand bars and great snorkeling spots and swim with turtles. Take a bigger day trip with Sugar Adventures and see the swimming pigs famous around the word. Check them out on the internet. This is a full day adventure up the Cays...spectacular.. good for ages 5-85
