Property description

Our Private, Secluded, Beach house - Jericho House - is a wonderful 1 1/2 acre private, accessible, secluded beachfront property on the small island of Great Exuma, for you to enjoy! Its private +-200 foot direct ocean frontage on a beautiful white sandy beach is immediately off the deck, while the whole property is covered in palm trees and a wonderful manicured garden with fruit trees. The house is a single level elevated beach house, all living & bed rooms have windows facing the ocean & dedicated split unit Air conditioning. outside you will find a screened lanai, multiple decks & a BBQ facing the ocean, perfect for kicking back and sun soaking at the beach or relaxing in the back looking at the palm tree covered manicured garden

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, around midway of the length of the Great Exuma island making getting around a breeze. It is private & secluded with plants and lots of massive palm trees, obscuring the house from the roadway, and the neighbors are barely visible. The property has a large number of mature coconut palms creating shadow canopies and fruit trees giving the home a very tropical feel. When you walk through the door, look out the picture window in the lounge you will so appreciate why you spend the time traveling. The ocean is front & center through the picture window and is the first sight you see when you open the front door.

Relax, you have arrived!

Now stretch those glorious days - enjoying the beauty of the Exumas from sunrise to sunset and late into the moonlit evenings! Please enjoy the fruit & coconuts anytime!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are currently living in Toronto Canada, with frigid winters and short summers, Exuma is our recharging pad and soothes our souls, we dread leaving this place every time we visit and experience this slice of paradise. We love to share it with people of the same mindset & life attitude!

Why the Owner Chose George Town:
We are warm blooded and need some Vitamin D regularly - thought this place to be the closest thing to paradise we could find anywhere! It calms the soul, it is natural and extremely beautiful, the Friendly Exuma People are just the best! The whole island experience is so much more than we ever imagined it to be - back when we started looking for something special & unique! We found this after spending days looking at many other islands and could no resist Jericho (It was incidentally the first & last property we viewed!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Jericho is close to everything on the Great Exuma Island, around midway of the length of the island, thus close to everything and not remote, but extremely private, secluded and natural. Jericho is also well known thus getting directions back is just easy! Most of all its on a glorious private super calm and safe beach, with snorkelling in our back yard!
