George Town villa description
Mayaguana House offers you peace and tranquility amidst tropical gardens and turquoise waters. We are located in Old Hooper's Bay, a 38-acre private community about five miles from George Town. 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 holds the 3rd bedroom.
Granddaughter's Beach, our small private beach on the property, is perfect for quick dips on the ocean, snorkeling our beautiful reefs, lazy beach lounging, or creating magical sand castles. The Old Hooper's Bay common beach is just a short distance beyond Granddaughter's Beach. Native stone walkways wind throughout our gardens leading to several small patios where you can enjoy quiet morning meditation or evening sunsets.
The property was completely renovated in 2002. 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 partially shaded by a traditional Bahamian hip roof provides the perfect spot for watching boats sail by enroute to Elizabeth Harbour.
The master bedroom features a king-size bed, sea view and large ensuite bath with walk-in shower and double lavs detailed with imported Mexican tile. Our second bedroom 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 (fully described below) holds the 3rd bedroom with a queen bed, kitchen facilities and living area.
You and your guests will awaken to the chirping of banana birds and fall asleep to the sound of gentle waves. For larger groups, we now have available a second cottage , The Tree House, which has one bedroom with queen bed. Please see VBRO listing for The Tree House, located a short walk from Mayaguana House within Old Hooper's Bay.
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 the Fish Shacks, then return home to Mayaguana House to count the endless array of stars dotting the black velvet sky overhead.
Exuma and Mayaguana House and the Tree House cottage offer you an unforgettable experience. Come and enjoy our little piece of paradise!

We cannot say enough good things about our stay in Exuma. Pam and Bill provide an absolutely beautiful setting for wonderful times with our family. We took our grandsons to celebrate their sixteenth birthday....and wow did we take home some awesome memories. The house is so comfortable and wait till you see the views from the terraces. We loved the home so much that we spent the majority of our afternoons and evenings there. The kitchen had everything we needed to make great meals (the local grocery store is great) and the boys loved grilling on the back terrace overlooking the ocean. Restful nights energized us for the next adventure. And did I mention there are so many places to enjoy just around the corner. Hopefully we will return someday with more family or perhaps our friends.

Owner response: Dear Gang from Texas, So glad you enjoyed your stay at Mayaguana House. Sounds like your family really got into Bahamas Mode - a good place to be! Chillin' and grillin' on the seaside terrace is one of our favorite evening activities, too. Best wishes to your grandson for a great 16th year ahead! Pam

Mayaguana House totally exceeded expectations, even considering the beautiful pictures posted. The house itself was spacious and airy, from the large and fully-equipped kitchen to the dining room to the master bedroom and bath. The feature that was first among equals was the patio stretching the full-length of the house (and then some), overlooking the bay and perfect for playing cards, relaxing on the hammock, or chatting and enjoying a Kalick or two. Not only does the patio overlook the turquoise bay, but it overlooks the wonderful garden/backyard that even has orchids growing in the trees. I thought it was great to be able to listen to music. The speakers on the patio, in the family room, and in the bedroom could be selected/deselected separately, and we plugged in multiple iPods throughout the week so that everyone could play DJ once. My wife and I loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves. I'm almost embarrassed we took advantage of the Internet and satellite TV. The Internet in The Exumas isn't the most reliable, so email okay, video conferencing not so much. It was comforting to be able to watch the Jets lose in real-time. My sister stayed in the Guest House, which was nice and cozy, and my wife's sister stayed in the Tree House, also nice and cozy. We had some other family members staying on the island and had no problem cooking and grilling for them all. Space is not something Mayaguana House lacks. The house is only 10 minutes from the airport, and at the time of our trip, family came in direct from Atlanta and Miami, whereas we flew from Boston to Nassau and then took an inter-island flight to Exumas International. The only relative disappointment was that we arrived in the evening and had to wait until the morning light to see how truly spectacular the outside surroundings were. We also took advantage of the beach and snorkeling off of Old Hooper's Bay beach, just a few minutes' walk from Mayaguana House.

We have rented from Pam two years in a row (looking to our third next year). The house is lovely, without being fussy. And it is incredibly well-equipped. (She has more kitchen tools than we do!) We had two families and the house worked wonderfully. But nothing tops the location. Close to Georgetown with your own beach. The beach is worth the rental alone. It is spectacular. We cannot say enough positive things about Mayaguana or Pam's professionalism in working with her.
