Sundowner House sits with an unparalleled view of the beautiful light blue sea. You can watch fish swim past from the patio– ideally done at “sundowner” time! The house sits 35 ft. above the sea and 25 yd from it, with beach frontage and safe swimming. Hoopers Bay is one of the most beautiful on the island, and extremely quiet. The house has three bedrooms, 2 doubles and one with twin beds. There is a mooring in front of the house. All living rooms have fans, air conditioning and a full unobstructed sea view. In response to comments made by one tenant, we took on board what was said, and decided to give Sundowner a facelift, and the following renovations were carried out in late 2013. The kitchen units, sink and bar were all replaced, and a new refrigerator/freezer bought. For the dining area, a new dining table with 6 chairs provided. All cracked ceramic floor tiles in the house were replaced. The master bedroom has a newly tiled floor, whilst it's shower room has been completely renovated. It now has a walk in shower. Not to end there, the bedsit has a new electric cooker and a new love seat. The patio has 4 new sunbeds.
Two paths lead from the house, which join up then take you to some steps onto the beautiful beach. Exuma is one to the best bone fishing areas in the world, and it has some of the clearest and cleanest seas to swim, snorkel or dive in. Facilities are available in George Town to do all these things, and also hiring boats. Brochures have been placed in the house to help you in this matter. The house has WIFI. 2 outdoor showers.
With effect from January 1st 2013, the Bahamian Government is imposing a 10% tax on all new bookings of holiday homes. This new tax IS reflected in the rates you see quoted.

Closeness to the main town, and the airport.
