George Town house description

Jericho House is a secluded property on the small island of Great Exuma. Houses on the island have names rather than addresses. Ours is no exception. Jericho House is named after a pond that has since then been filled but the name remains. The house is a simple single-story beach house designed for kicking back at the beach.

If solitude and beautiful views are your idea of paradise, you will love Exuma. Exuma's appeal is that it is not filled with tourist traps and fancy hotels and restaurants, but rather that it a place of serenity where walks on sparsely populated beaches and boating or diving in pristine turquoise blue waters bring peace to even the most stressed-out travelers.

Jericho House is located less than five miles from the airport. It is difficult to see from highway, and the neighbors are barely visible as well. The property has a large number of mature coconut palms giving the home a very tropical feel. When you walk through the door, you will remember why you spend a difficult day traveling. The ocean is visible through the picture window and is the first sight you see when you open the front door.
