Excursions with Pat (on his boat -- The4Cs): There are a host of excursions available during your stay. Captain Pat Smith is a fisherman and has a boat for tours and various excursions. He is a life-long Exuma resident and a great resource for all things regarding Exuma. He has a 30 foot boat and can plan a day (or half-day) for your group to head out by boat to the various Cays; to the Exuma Land & Sea Park; fishing, conch and/or lobster gathering; a trip to Staniel Cay (also the home of Thunder-ball Grotto (extraordinary caves for exploration, etc., where the James Bond movie “Thunderball” was filmed)); Sampson Cay (home of the swimming pigs); Iguana Cay (these iguanas are more like small dinosaurs); Sandy Cay (where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed) as well as a tours of the islands and cays owned by various celebrities (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill; David Copperfield; Johnny Depp; Nicholas Cage, etc.). There are many more things to see and do and you should speak with Pat well before your arrival.
Recent Renovation: Note that in 2012, all five bedrooms of the house were completely renovated in two phases.
At first, the free standing pod, which contains two bedrooms and one shared bathroom, was gutted from floor to ceiling. The newly constructed unit now contains two newly constricted 13 x 13 bedrooms and one new, oversized shared bathroom. Each bedroom has a queen bed.
In December 2012 we likewise completed the renovation of the three bedrooms on the main section of the house. The Master Bedroom and Bathroom were completely gutted and are new from floor to ceiling: new imported tile floors with high-end custom woodwork wainscoting and crown moldings. The oversized en-suite Master Bathroom is likewise new, with an oversized walk-in shower, free standing double vanities and a separate toilet room. The Master Bedroom is also flanked by a walk-in closet.
Bedrooms two and three were likewise renovated, with newly finished walls, custom bead-board wood working and crown moldings.

The Exuma Beach House is located 3 miles from the Airport and only 2.5 miles from the Sandals Emerald Bay Resort , Spa, Golf Club, and Marina and the Grand Isle Resort. Several new restaurants, the Greg Norman Golf Course, a large Marina and a new Spa and moments away from Calypso, The Exuma Beach House.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My family and I live on Long Island in New York and get to Exuma as often as possible.
Why the Owner Chose Farmer's Hill, The Bahamas:
My parents had been traveling to Exuma since the early 1970s and I vacationed there very often as a child and young adult.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you go to Exuma, you want to be on the water (there is no sense traveling there and not having immediate, regular beach access). That is the best part of Calypso, it is beach front, and the beach is quiet, nearly secluded, which is merely steps out the back door. That beach, and the 16 foot square deck perched about 20 feet above the ocean the coral bluff, are the perfect way to spend a day or a week on Exuma.
