George Town villa description

THERE ARE A FEW GOOD DATES REMAINING FOR YOUR WINTER 2014 VACATION. BOOKING NOW FOR SUMMER GETAWAYS TO THE TURQUOISE WATERS OF THE BAHAMAS!!

The best of Exuma is close at hand when you arrive at Villa #30, a choice location on the waterfront at the Palm Bay Beach Club. This well designed and well stocked villa faces beautiful Elizabeth Harbor and you are only a few barefoot steps to the beach and the turquoise waters of the Bahamas. This large (approx 700 sf) unit is roomy and comfortably holds 4 people.

Villa #30 has been outfitted with many extras to make you feel at home and provides a clean and comfortable setting for your holiday. Nearby Jolly Hall beach is another pristine area (5-10 min beach walk) to relax and take in the never ending views.

The convenient location is less then 2 miles into George Town for shopping, the straw market and sightseeing. An enjoyable walk, resort shuttle or quick taxi ride. Car rental is available across the road from the resort. Kayaks and a paddleboat included in rental. Boat and scooter rental available in Georgetown. The 'Fish Fry' area, famous on each of the Bahamian Islands is just a 10 minute walk and offers the catch of the day to locals and tourists alike. Savor the conch salad, grilled grouper or weekend bbq!

The unit looks towards Stocking Island - to see it 'up close' you can catch the shuttle boat nearby that will drop you off there for a day of exploring or head to Fowl Cay for outstanding snorkeling. As the bone fishing capital of the world, Exuma has many guides available to show you the best spots.

The out Islands of the Bahamas will introduce you to the wide open and unspoiled sandy beaches that dreams are made of. If you're traveling with family, young or old or looking for a peaceful get-away destination, Villa #30 at Palm Bay affords you comfort and relaxation in a safe and clean setting.

                        Our stay was truly enjoyable.It was immaculate,comfortable,and we spent most of our time sitting on the patio and enjoying the gorgeous view. The proximity to the beach was perfect..just a matter of a few steps to the sand...and we took advantage of the lovely pool area at Palm Bay as well as use of the paddle boat and other equipment which was included in the rental. We would definitely return and want to thank our terrific hostess who was extremely helpful in every way.

                        We found Villa 30 to be a perfect place to stay, ie, it is well represented in the online photos, it is clean and well stocked, and it is convenient to the best parts of the island. It is great for kids, as we had a 3 and 6 year old with us and they loved the little beach in front of the villa and the pool you see in the pics. I would recommend a rental car as the Hideaways shuttle is reliable but only runs every 2 hours on the hour, exactly when Elvis' water taxi leaves for Stocking Island. This causes lots of waiting in town for the taxi, or waiting in town after a supermarket run to get back to the villa. Jolly Hall was a 5 minute walk and beautiful. Stocking Island was great, with the Atlantic side a must with kids as it has some great dunes to climb and waves to bodysurf. One aside, beware that it may be a bit windy, as it is a sailboating destination. This can take the edge off the hotter days, so it is bittersweet.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                        Manager response: Thanks for taking the time to review villa 30 and share your experience with other guests. I hope your family memories of Christmas in Exuma will bring you back again.

                        We spent a week at Kathy and Fred's Villa in November 2013 and had a fabulous time! We went with our 11-month-old son, and the place was perfect for our little family. The condo is very well equipped - it had everything we would have had there if it was our very own place. We loved it because we were able to enjoy the spectacular view right from the front porch or even sit right on the beach while our son was napping during the day. A very short walk up the beach is another really amazing beach with perfect white sand, some trees for shade and shallow warm water - perfect for afternoons at the beach with our little guy! The folks at the front desk at the resort was very nice and the resort was clean and well-run. Just up the beach is a great restaurant/bar called Latitudes right on the water with music and dancing on Friday night - fun!!! Also, not to be missed is the delicious (albeit deep-fried!) food at the Fish Fry - a short 10 minute walk from the Villa. We had never been to the Bahamas before, and we were very happy with our choice of Exuma Island, and of this Villa. The water looks just like the postcards... gorgeous! We would highly recommend the Villa to anyone looking for a great vacation in the Bahamas!

                        This location was so perfect for us. Great service and communication from the owners, property management and hotel. They helped us with all sorts of requests, plans and recommendations. The restaurants and fish fry close by are excellent. As travelers without a car, the complimentary shuttle into town was huge. There was an amazing beach- Jolly Hall- right next to us. We loved Exuma and the condo and we will definitely be back! Perfect, relaxing vacation!

                        Our 2 week vacation in Exuma was gloriously relaxing. The cays are beautiful in themselves but to have the white powdery sand and incredible warm turquiose water only a few steps away from our patio was truly amazing! Our villa at Palm Bay was our "home away from home". Even though our hosts, Kathy and Fred were not there, we felt their welcome the moment we stepped through the door. They have made it their quest to make sure their guests are happy and comfortable. The villa is nicely appointed and well-equipped and so user-friendly - even down to the beach toys, photo albums, reading materials and tips on where to go and what to eat! It was all there to make our hiatus away from the chaos of that other world, extra special. There is so much to make us want to return and...WE WILL!

                        My wife and I had our honeymoon at Villa #30 of the Palm Bay Beach Club. I was hoping to enjoy the amenities of a resort without the crowds that are sometimes associated with the high rises. We couldn't have been more pleased with our selection. We found the resort to be extremely quiet and relaxing. Despite the nearness of others, we enjoyed great privacy at the resort and on other nearby beaches. To explore Elizabeth Harbor, we rented a 17' Boston Whaler from Minns in George Town. I don't think we could have had more fun doing so. The resort allowed us to moor overnight for a nominal fee, and the rental afforded the freedom to visit some of the better restaurants we came across. The only difficulty we had initially was tracking down food that we enjoyed, but once we had the boat, we went to Big Dee's and St. Francis Marina and Resort on Stocking Island. After that, we looked no further. All in all, our experience was excellent. Our international travel experience is limited, but we found no surprises in our visit. Kathy provided us with volumes of information prior to our visit, and she clearly bent over backwards to make sure that everything was prepared prior to our arrival. At this point, our only problem is trying to find time to get back down.

                        We had such a wonderful time adventuring all over the Island(s). From the moment we turned the corner to go to the Villa, we knew we had chosen the right place for our Vacation. We adventured out on 4 C's adventure one day, Stocking Island another, Geocaching another, golf, a couple of down days just relaxing on the beach and we didn't want to leave. Everything was communicated to us in advance which made it so much easier for us when we arrived. We felt we knew what and when to do things.. Thank You! We will be back...

                        Fantastic location right at the beach, with stunning views out to the aqua colored seas and isands. Lovely small beach right out front, or a 5 min walk to an even more beautiful undeveloped (all to ourselves at this time of year) bigger beach. The Palm Bay Beach club had all the amenities of a big resort, but was quaint and offered the home away from home feel. Love all the colorful cottages/villas. Our villa was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Customer service from the owners, managers, to local residents was top notch. Although we enjoyed the 20 min walk to town, the complimentary shuttle came in handy. Stocking Island is a piece of paradise not be be missed. Enjoy the fun loving Bahemian folk!

                        Our stay at villa #30 was just amazing.  We would like to thank you for everything! We felt so welcomed with all the preparation you and Wendy did for us (ie emails and information, bread/milk/water waiting for us, Wendy's greetings). The place was perfect for us, fantastic and clean.  We appreciated the washing machine, beach accessories and snorkeling gears which we made sure to return clean. We enjoyed the resort facilities (shuttle, pool, ping pong table, kayaks, restaurant) but our best was by far Jolly Hall Beach where we went every day.  I understand now why you call it your secret beach!!! The 3rd day, we rented a boat at Minns and spent the day visiting and chilling at Stocking Island (came back with many sand dollars!!!) We left the place on Thursday for the Emeral Bay marina where we spent the afternoon (at Grand Isle Resort) before checking in on our catamaran. The week on the catamaran was just like paradise! I guess we'll have to come back! I hope everything was fine after our departure.  We made sure to left the place as clean as it was when we took it! We are keeping your contact information for a next time. Great thanks again for having made our vacation so memorable.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: Our family made annual escapes from the frozen north for several years and we now make the beautiful island of Great Exuma our regular destination. Settling in and enjoying the simple life couldn't be easier. Even as they've grown and are making the trip by themselves, our kids spend hours beachcombing as the tide reveals it's treasures. Traveling with friends has been made easy as our villa easily accommodates all of us. Room to relax, nature's beauty to enjoy and time to take it all in is why we love it. We hope you will too!

                      Why George Town:
                      Our family had made many trips to all inclusive sunny locations and took advantage of all they had to offer. Our one complaint was always the crowds of people and schedules to adhere to- we wanted to leave all of that at home. Our first trip to Exuma took us back in time and into the holiday postcard beaches, unspoiled and pristine. When we found a spot that offered all the comforts we enjoy as well as easy access to beaches and a slower way of life we couldn't help but jump in.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Rated EXCELLENT accommodation with Tripadvisor. Award winner on flipkey.com Check out the reviews from our guests!
