Property description

Mayaguana House offers you peace and tranquility amidst tropical gardens and turquoise waters. We are located in a private compound called Old Hooper's Bay. Old Hooper's is a 30 acre site running from one of the few hills in Exuma to the sea, with 10 homes and lots of green space. Situated on two acres well off the Queen's Highway, the main house sits by the sea overlooking our landscaped gardens, Hooper's Bay, and the Atlantic beyond. Three lovely bedrooms and 3 full baths with one additional guest bath accommodate up to 9 people. Mayaguana House has two bedrooms. The Tree House, located on the hill above Mayaguana House on a separate parcel of land, holds the 3rd bedroom. Both Mayaguana House and The Tree House is available for separate rental and is fully described below. Mayaguana House alone sleeps up to 7 persons in two bedrooms each with private bath. The Tree House sleeps a maximum of 2 persons. A discount is given when renting both Mayaguana House and the Tree House concurrently.

We have a private beach, Old Hooper's Bay Beach Park, shared by the compound and Mayaguana House is blessed to have it's own private beach, called Granddaughter's Beach, just 50 feet from the main house. Both are perfect for quick dips on the ocean, snorkeling our beautiful reefs, lazy beach lounging, or creating magical sand castles. The Old Hooper's Bay Beach Park has a hammock and tree swing and is just a short distance beyond Granddaughter's Beach. Native stone walkways wind throughout our Mayaguana gardens leading to several small patios where you can enjoy quiet morning meditation or evening sunsets.

Features include cathedral ceilings, gourmet kitchen with beautiful sea views, and a 22-foot expanse of glass in the open-concept living and dining area looking out to the sea and Simon's Point in the distance. A large, seaside terrace of imported tropical Ipe hardwood is partially shaded by a traditional Bahamian hip roof provides the perfect spot for watching boats sail by enroute to Elizabeth Harbor. Outdoor dining will be one of your favorite activities, either at the Ipe dining table or around the Ipe coffee table. Then move over to the terrace hammock with a good book or head for the beach!

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, sea view and large ensuite bath with walk-in shower and two basins and private WC, detailed with imported Mexican tile. Our second bedroom, which has a garden view, is located in the adjacent guest house and features a king-size bed and a bunk bed with a queen and upper twin in a spacious room, with private bath.

The Tree House cottage holds the 3rd bedroom with a queen bed, kitchen facilities and living area. which is a 4 minute walk from the Tree House along the internal Old Hooper's road. The beach is lovely, with sandy beach into the sea, reef along the rocky shoreline and also just off shore, plus a park area with hammock and picnic space. We are very blessed! The Tree House is perfect for one couple. It is the upper story of a two story structure, with a balcony across the front which looks to Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond. The cottage is fully equipped with satellite TV, DVD, CD player, WiFi, phone. Kitchen has microwave, small stove/oven, refrigerator and all the equipment. The bedroom has a queen bed. You can see the sea from your pillow tops! The bath includes a walk in shower and also has a stack laundry unit. We have a small BBQ, beach chairs, cooler. The cottage is air-conditioned. Please see our separate VBRO listing for more about The Tree House.

Not surprisingly, life on Exuma centers around the beautiful turquoise seas. Whether it is exciting water sports or quiet moments just listening to the cresting waves, Exuma will fulfill your desires. Renown for world-class bone fishing, the island has many local fishing guides. In addition, you can enjoy deep-sea fishing, boating, picnics, and reef snorkeling along the many small cays surrounding Elizabeth Harbour. Car and outboard rentals are available.

Our list of restaurants continues to grow, with fresh-cracked conch and Bahamian spiny lobsters at the top of the menu. Enjoy Exuma nightlife which includes the local Rake and Scrape Band at Eddie's Edgewater, then return home to Mayaguana House to count the endless array of stars dotting the black velvet sky overhead.

Exuma, Mayaguana House and the Tree House cottage offer you an unforgettable experience. You and your guests will awaken to the chirping of banana birds and fall asleep to the sound of gentle waves. Come and enjoy our little piece of paradise!
