Property description

Sports Illustrated chose Bougainvillea House Villa as their location to shoot the cover photo of the 2016 Swimsuit Edition featuring Ronda Rousey in body paint as their model.

Billionaires, and Hollywood celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, ronda Rousey, Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Glenn Close, David James Elliot, Nanci Chambers, Maury Povich, Connie Chung; and others have chosen Bougainvillea House Villa for their relaxed ocean front vacations; because of the beautiful beaches, deluxe services, and uncluttered privacy. Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, and a ten passenger power boat are included.

We require a 7 day minimum stay throughout the year; except over the winter holiday period, when there is a 14 day minimum stay. We include an initial premium grocery and premium liquor order for 8-10 adults, and daily housekeeping. Local cooks are available for $300 per day and private chefs are available for an additional $600 per day.

The west wing, east wing, and garden cottage combined sleep 12-18 adults and feature seven bedrooms with private baths, two sofa-beds, nine bathrooms, two kitchens; and is offered at $28,000 per week. The west wing and east wing combined sleep 10-14 adults and feature six bedrooms with private baths, one sofa-bed, two kitchens; and is offered at $24,500 per week. The west wing only sleeps 8-10 adults and features four bedrooms with private baths, one sofa-bed, one kitchen; and is offered at $17,500 per week. Additional accommodation for up to 20 more adults is available by adding beachfront rental homes that are within easy walking distance.

We include the use of a 26’ foot Twin Vee Catamaran Power Boat, including a captain, for one day at no charge (fuel extra). The boat is available for additional days for $300 per day.

The 'Swimming Pigs Tour' is popular with many of our guests and is managed by local tour operators. It starts at 8:00 am and runs a full day up into the 'Out Islands' and includes Nicolas Cage's Iguana Island, the Pirates of the Caribbean sandbar, the swimming pigs at Staniel Cay, the Shark feeding at Compass Cay, snorkeling at the Thunderball 007 grotto; with a final stop for lunch and refreshments at the Staniel Cay yacht club. The cost is about $175 per person for the day.

Bougainvillea House is top rated and is featured in Elite Traveler, Gulfstream Jet magazine, Bombardier Jet magazine, Ocean Home magazine, Air Canada Enroute magazine, and Cathay Pacific magazine.

Car: Recommended

Billionaires like Ricardo Cisneros and Hollywood celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Glenn Close, David James Elliot, Nanci Chambers, Maury Povich, Connie Chung; and others have chosen Bougainvillea House Villa for their relaxed ocean front vacations; because of the beautiful beaches, deluxe services, and uncluttered privacy.

Bougainvillea House is located on the pristine, untouched, and untraveled beach of Hoopers Bay; and it is unlikely that you will see anyone on the beach in front of the house during your stay.

The Villa is five minutes from George Town Airport; which features daily International Jet service from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Toronto, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. Five minutes away on the only road on the island is Smittys Groceries and Liquor store.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1998

About: Scott and Karla McMullen are your hosts and are also owners of the property. Scott is a retired Air Canada Boeing 767 Captain, while Karla was formerly in the corporate financial world in Mexico City.

Why Exuma, Bahamas:
We chose this island because of its small town atmosphere with only 2,000 residents; its pristine gin clear waters that are perfect for first time boaters; its laid back atmosphere; and its warm, tropical climate that is consistently warmer than Nassau or Florida. We chose this property because it has the oldest grove of coconut trees on the Island, more than 70 years old; and because the Villas sit directly on a white sand beach with no public access.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Hammocks are the main order of the day; with relaxing beach time a close second. Three independent wi-fi systems, Cable TV, and a 10 passenger boat are included. Daily concierge services ensure that you take full advantage of all that the Island has to offer. Private chefs are available to add to the local tropical experience.
