  • Beyond Amazing!

    "This was our first trip to the Bahamas and our expectations didn't come close to the reality. The turquoise, clear water and white sand beaches were exquisite. The snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing (with Neville) were amazing. And the Kevalli House was the perfect retreat. The owner, Bob, couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful, constantly giving us the history of the area as well as recommendations for dinner, hikes and snorkeling. The guest house was clean and well stocked even with great cooking knives! The screened in porch made for some very fun ping pong tournaments and for those who are interested, Bob has a large selection of DVD's to borrow from. It was quiet and the paths down to the dock or to the ocean on the other side were well maintained. There are two pavilions to chose from if you want to read in the shade overlooking the most incredible view you could ever imagine. We rented a boat from Minn's which we highly recommend so that you can easily get from Stocking Island into town and around the area. We gave this trip 5 stars. The only disappointment is that we had to leave...but we definitely will be back!"

  • What a great way to spend the Christmas Holiday!

    "I am hesitant to add a review because I want to selfishly keep this place to as few people as possible, so when we decide to rent the house again, it's available. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone that wants to get away from your hectic life! It's the perfect secluded location. We didn't see anyone on the beach for at least 5-6 days of our trip. It's absolutely gorgeous and peaceful. The nights are so quiet and serene. We decided to wait to arrive at the island before reserving one of the island excursions. Thank goodness we didn't reserve anything because once we got to the house, we left once for groceries and once for dinner. Other than that, we didn't leave the house or beach. It was the perfect trip to recharge. Thank you so much for letting us rent your home!"

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful and very relaxing island getaway!!

    "My wife and I stayed at Coconut Cottage with another couple. This was our first trip to the Bahamas and I would have to say that this was our most relaxing vacation. The water was such a beautiful blue clear water surrounding the white sand beaches and everyone we met on the island was so nice. The house was so new, beautiful, tastefully decorated with relaxing, neutral colors and furniture. Everything was just as described and pictured. All the amenities that were needed were right there. The owner Joanna was so easy to work with on booking the cottage. The property manager provided consierge service for our arrival with requested groceries and some Bahaman beer. He was always available and made sure that everything was going well and working well. He is also available to help book bonefishing, adventures and car rental. Make sure to enjoy the ocean sunset at the Gazebo bar (take your own beverages with you). We learned alot from the local property owners regarding some of the best places not to miss during this time - ie:water taxi to Stocking Island, drive to Exuma Point (read guest book). The ocean and private pool is a short walk down the path from the cottage. We also enjoyed just walking around the area as it was so peaceful with nice landscape and several beautiful homes in the area. We stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed the very nice bedrooms with private en-suite bathrooms. There were ceiling fans and individual air conditioners in each bedroom which made for a peaceful night of sleep. There was such a nice breeze while we were there and we enjoyed spending the mornings and evenings on the wrap around porch. Some of the most enjoyable meals were off the gas grill on the deck. There were several local cafe's and restaurants with such delicious fish. We recommend the drive down to Santana's in Little Exuma as the seafood was out of this world. Shirley's was just a short drive up the road and also one of the best places to eat fish or take out. And Catch a Fire is just a short walk from the cottage with a band on every Wednesday and Saturday. It was very convenient being halfway between the airport and Georgetown. This is such a safe place to vacation as you didn't really hear anything about crime on the island from the locals or returning vacationers. We would definitely recommend you bring bug spray for the beach and less breezy evenings. Since we enjoyed ourselves so much on this vacation, we are already thinking of who we can bring when we return."

The Exumas 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.
