Overview

About the property

Spacious villa in one of the most spectacular locations on Earth

If you're traveling in a larger group and want to visit the true Bahamas, to see its true beauty, our villa is the prime destination. It's rare that you find a house so impeccably maintained, it's even rarer that the house in question has easy access to and panoramic views of the ocean and the ocean banks and can host a big family or a large group of people while keeping rental prices really competitive. Such is the newly built (2012) Black Point Ocean Villa. There's a lot to like about it. The house itself is built to the latest standards, is very clean and neat with a lot of space and comfortable modern amenities at your service. Step outside and you'll see a porch that offers amazing views of the deep blue ocean to the east and the bright shallow azure waters to the west where you can watch the sun rise and set in the water - a truly marvelous experience that you won't find in a hotel. Relax and sunbathe on a private beach just a few steps away with a gazebo where the water is shallow and safe. Or go the ocean side beach for magnificent views of the waves. And it's only the beginning - you're welcome to explore the nearby quiet and welcoming settlement of Black Point where you'll find a nice restaurant, a bar and a cafe and a few stores, go sunfish sailing, rent a boat with a guide to see all the beauty the Exumas have to offer, go fishing or jet skiing, kayaking or shelling, have a picnic on an uninhabited island - the world is yours to explore and we certainly will help. So whether you want to be active and do everything or maybe instead need the world to be quiet and relax completely from the noise and the fast pace of the big cities - it's all there. We heartily welcome you to our villa and the Bahamas.

Why The Owner chose Exuma

It has panoramic views of the ocean and the shallow banks, it is in excellent condition and located in one of the most clean and pristine places on Earth. It has all the modern amenities and services available, is very roomy and enjoyable both inside and out. There's easy access to a secluded and safe private beach and the beach on the ocean side - literally just a few yards away. It can host a large group of people and won't feel crowded - it's the way your vacation in the Bahamas should be - happy and joyful yet not noisy or busy as can be in bigger towns.

Beautiful location with easy access to all sites

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family. Easy stroll to the ocean on both sides of the island. Rent a boat to visit all the sites nearby. We grilled the fish we caught for dinner one night.

Christmas in Black Point

  • 5 of 5

My family spent ten days over Christmas in Henry's home. The house was perfectly suited for the five of us - two adults and three teenagers. The view was breathtaking off the deck. I loved that we had direct access to two very different beaches - calm and serene vs. strong crashing waves of energy. We rented the boat and the golf cart for the whole time we were there and made great use of them everyday. Henry stocked our fridge and kitchen with the groceries we ordered ahead of time. The items we ran out of we picked up in the stores in Black Point or on Staniel Cay. (Being Christmas time, many people were away for their holidays so it was tricky to find when the stores in Black Point were open, but the locals made efforts to get us what we needed each time we asked!)

We spent our days travelling amongst all the islands and yachts finding beaches to stop and picnic on. We stopped to visit the pigs and iguanas and spent lots of time snorkelling - especially at the sand bar.

We ate our fill of fresh bread made by Lorraine's mom, ate at Lorraine's and DeShamon's restaurants as well as Staniel Cay when we stopped to fuel up the boat.

Each day we went down to the dock, Magic (or Marco) had prepped our boat and had everything ready to go.

It was one of our favourite family holidays and everyone came home with many adventures to share! We send a big thank you to Henry and all the locals that went out of their way to provide us with a fabulous holiday.

A Little Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We arrived last Saturday (3/26) and the house appeared to be just like the pictures with the exception of the laundry. It does have laundry, but it is in a separate building and shared with the duplex Henry owns next door. Not a big deal, but should be in description - it had an electric shock when touched so we didn't use it. Saturday night we lost power at the house and I called Santo. He came right away w/ electrician and after temp fix that night, we lost power again Sunday morn. early. No power, phone and no charge for golf cart. We left early Mon. expecting to have power when we returned. No power at 4:00 when we returned. Finally after several attempts, electrician was able to get us power around 7:00. We lost all the groceries we paid Henry to purchase and stock. He did offer to replace them, but after smelling the spoiled food, all we wanted was the milk for my kids cereal, etc. Later in the week the golf cart wouldn't charge and we had no phone service.

The beach and ocean are amazing! I've been all over Caribbean and Hawaii and this is by far the most beautiful water I've seen. Renting a boat is must. Not only was the boat fun, we were able to meet the owner of boat rental service Bread Boy. Such a great and friendly guy! Explained the area and got us a guide for 1/2 day to show us around. Magic was awesome also. Took his time showing us around and made sure we would not get lost. Saw him everyday and he always made the point to talk to all of us. You have to meet Bread Boy because you will literally see him everywhere. Bread Boy was so nice, he offered to give us a 2 bedroom unit for free Monday night if we didn't have power!!! Ran ( a local guide) took my son(15) and myself fishing. Another good time and exceptional young man. Helped for a wonderful experience and even used his own vegetables to make my family a fresh conch salad when we returned.

People, KIDS, boat and outdoor adventure is great. Don't go expecting resort atmosphere and make sure you have groceries. Dining is an issue at restaurants but manageable.

Many thanks to Santo for all the work and even going out of his way to see us at Staniel.

My kids 15 and 13 are already looking for pictures of the awesome kids they met at the dock and basketball court.

Owner's Response: the power and the phone company has not been that great, and yes the power was off and we did everything in our power to make sure this was fixed, the day this happen all the place to buy the part was closed, we even try home depot but they did not carry the part, on a holiday monday we found a place open in Nassau that had the part and i sent it on the plane, that same day. i was told only the milk and the power would go off and on , i am happy that from that day for the rest of their stay, there was no power problem so yes the golf cart was not able to charge, please remember these things can happen that is out of my controle BUT i will try my best to make your vacation enjoyable.

Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house was perfect for us and our family. Marco helped us with the boat and everything! The views from the front and back porches were priceless. Nice ocean breezes and water was drinkable. Island is so quiet and peaceful! Taking the boat to go snorkeling and to find private beaches to hang out on was our favorite part. We are already talking about when we can go back!

What a great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family used all 7 bedrooms of both villas and the location between the rough Atlantic and

calm Caribbean was perfect, especially for our 2 and 4 year old children who could safely enjoy the shallow

calm waters of the Caribbean. Being able to experience the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from our

villas was amazing.

We spent a whole day with Marco as our boat guide checking out the iguanas, swimming pigs,

sharks at Compass Cay, lunch at Staniel Cay Yacht Club, amazing sand bar at Twin Cays,

and snorkeling at Thunderball Grotto. Renting a boat to see the other Exuma cays is a must.

Henry was a wonderful host and Marco, his caretaker, promptly responded to our needs or any issues that

came up. Note that the phone and internet service is not reliable, but so what, we were on vacation.

Highly recommend that you arrange to have your food and supplies purchased on Nassau by Henry, who then

ships them by airplane at a very reasonable price and has them delivered to your villa for your arrival.

Black Point is a small quiet island with very friendly people and not much to do except enjoy the

natural beauty and peacefulness. Being able to travel around the island in golf carts was loads of fun.

You will not believe the many shades of blues and greens the waters

of the Exumas offer...simply spectacular!

Make sure you spend a day at the gorgeous beach at Great Guana Cay on the southern end of the island...we

spent 2 days there and had the whole beach to ourselves.

Marco rocks!
