Recent Exuma reviews

  • Totally relaxing!

    "We spent a delightful week in Johanna's guest cottage being thoroughly entertained by her wonderful dogs, Lucky and Sophie. The cottage was everything described and more. We spent every morning and evening on the upper deck just relaxing and gazing at the beautiful view. Johanna's recommendations for restaurants and things to do were spot on. She was helpful in every way (she helped by making phone calls when my luggage didn't arrive) and yet was totally unobtrusive. All the beaches on Exuma are lovely, but we especially enjoyed Forbes Hill and Tropic of Cancer. Our favorite restaurants were Tropic Breeze and Santana's. When visiting Santana's, make sure to stop at Mom's Bakery right next door and across the road at the yellow shack for delicious conch fritters. We also saw a lovely sunset at a restaurant called Catch a Fire (a little pricey, but worth the view). Our first night Johanna sent us down the road (after first calling to make sure they would stay open to serve us) to Turquoise Cay. It is a nice boutique hotel and restaurant. They could not have been nicer to us. All in all, we would highly recommend Sweet Ting, and Exuma in general, to anyone who is looking for a quiet, off the beaten track vacation. We definitely hope to return! Thank you, Johanna for a great week."

  • A wonderful week of sun

    "We rented both sides of Henry's vill (6 adults) for the week. The villa was well set up, clean and comfortable. The views from both sides of the porch were amazing and the gazebo at the beach was a great spot for both yoga and happy hour. The people in Blackpoint were very friendly and helpful. A wonderful day of snorkeling, lunch at the Staniel Cay yahct club, sand bars, and more.. A great reprieve from a long winter."

  • our second home

    "This was our 2nd year visiting Seastar. We were there 2 weeks and took a vacation within our vacation by flying to Eleuthera for a couple days. As always, we loved our stay at Seastar. Chat n chill is a great place to visit on Sunday, as that is the pig roast day! We rented a boat this time and explored the waterways and did some great snorkeling. I am sure I am addicted to cracked chicken from Charlie's at fish fry too. Plenty to do in the off season If you are adventurous. We are just glad the weather held out again in the peak of hurricane season!"

  • Another Great Stay!

    "This was our second stay at Paradise Palm and it was as comfortable and well-matched for us as we remembered. The cottage is nicely located at the edge of the resort, a short walk to Jolly Hall and with a great view of the harbor (like that the bushes in front have been trimmed back . .. good for view and breeze) It was well stocked with everything we needed to make breakfasts and several dinners at home and was very clean when we checked in (also well cleaned mid-stay) We will return to Great Exuma and to Paradise Palm . . . Thanks Rachel for sharing your little piece of paradise!"

Exuma Travel Tips

Discover Paradise in Exumas Vacation Rentals

From the capital of George Town to the tiny uninhabited cays, Exumas is a joy to discover. The capital was founded in 1783 by American Loyalists, fleeing the New Republic. It has a fascinating history, full of 17th-century pirates, plantations and its links to both the British and U.S. Navies during World War II and much more. The Tropic of Cancer runs through the city. The chain of cays making up Exumas extends some 130 miles long. Exumas travel could not be easier. To find this delightful area, fly to Exuma International Airport. Famous for its year-round great weather, the Exumas resorts are a perfect escape at any time of year.

Much More Than Just a Beach Vacation

On the main island of Great Exuma, visitors will find the delightful pink and white government building, inspired by buildings on Nassau. This quaint town has gift shops, just two grocery stores and a great straw market, where visitors can buy local handicrafts. There are also excellent pubs and plenty of evening activities. Visitors will find the area around Government Wharf is where the locals head.

Outside of the main town, there are plenty of opportunities to explore. Head to Three Sister Rock where, legend has it, three sisters drowned trying to swim out to meet their lovers. Nearby is a wonderful beach, perfect for some snorkeling. The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is a protected environment, and unique for its incredible marine habitat with tropical fish and lobsters. Here, there are several public cays to explore, some of which are only reachable by boat.

A point of interest for many visitors are the stromatolites--a reef-forming algae, and some of the rarest living creatures on earth. Some are thought to be in excess of 2,000 years old and fossils of stromatolites dating back some 3.5 billion years have been found here. Also, at Allan’s Cay visitors will enjoy spotting the iguanas. The Hermitage is the remains of a short-lived cotton plantation, with the remains of the original house and graves dating from the 1700s. A unique experience at Major Cay is swimming with the local pigs. It is also a great place for snorkeling. And a visit to Thunderball Grotto is a must. The Grotto was featured in two James Bond films. This is a great spot for divers as the pristine waters reflect the sun’s rays to give incredible views of the fish beneath. Golf lovers choosing Exumas vacation rentals will enjoy the course designed by Greg Norman at Emerald Bay.

Ideal for Divers and Snorkelers

Exumas resorts are, naturally, ideal for watersports and activities. Visitors can rent a boat or take a charter out to fish or explore the dive sites. There are several caves, such as those at Angelfish Blue Hole or Exuma Land and Sea Park. There are a variety of reefs to explore, such as those at Exuma Land and Sea Park, Pagoda Reef, and Sting Ray Reef, an ideal place to observe a wide range of fish. The list of snorkeling sites is impressive and includes Harbour Buoy, Loaded Barrel Reef, Jolly Hall, Duck Cays, and Bird Cay.

Perfect Properties on Paradise

Exumas vacation rentals offer an incredible array of properties, many just steps from the crystal-clear waters. With exceptional properties, in glorious locations, on a variety of cays, there is the perfect property for everyone. Each comes fully equipped with everything to make a vacation property feel like home. Many come with luxury extras such as cable and satellite TV, CD/DVD players with film and music libraries, BBQs, decks, outdoor showers and even beach towels! Many of these perfect homes also provide a warm welcome for pets.
