Recent Renovation: Note that in 2012, all five bedrooms of the house were completely renovated in two phases.

At first, the free standing pod, which contains two bedrooms and one shared bathroom, was gutted from floor to ceiling. The newly constructed unit now contains two newly constricted 13 x 13 bedrooms and one new, oversized shared bathroom. Each bedroom has a queen bed. Please see our main website at www.exumabeachrental.com for the latest info on the house and Exuma generally.

In December 2012 we likewise completed the renovation of the three bedrooms on the main section of the house. The Master Bedroom and Bathroom were completely gutted and are new from floor to ceiling: new imported tile floors with high-end custom woodwork wainscoting and crown moldings. The oversized en-suite Master Bathroom is likewise new, with an oversized walk-in shower, free standing double vanities and a separate toilet room.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: My family and I live on Long Island in New York and get to Exuma as often as possible.

                              Why the Owner Chose Mt. Thompson:
                              My parents had been traveling to Exuma since the early 1970s and I vacationed there very often as a child and young adult.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              If you go to Exuma, you want to be on the water (there is no sense traveling there and not having immediate, regular beach access). That is the best part of Calypso, it is beach front, and the beach is quiet, nearly secluded, which is merely steps out the back door. That beach, and the 16 foot square deck perched about 20 feet above the ocean the coral bluff, are the perfect way to spend a day or a week on Exuma.
