Property type villa

Overview

About the property

Villa, 1 + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4), futon in living room

Wake up to a stunning sunrise over the gorgeous sparkling waters of the Elizabeth Harbour! When you are ready to hit the beach, you can literally jump from your doorstep into the soft white Caribbean sand! Not only is the water calm and clear, but the view includes beautiful Stocking Island. As this villa is part of Palm Bay Beach Club, you also have the option of swimming in a pool, also with a view of the ocean, just steps away from the villa. The beach club’s indoor/outdoor restaurant/bar, Splash, is just steps way as well.

The beach is quiet and secluded; however, if you prefer an even more private spot- just keep walking north, and in about 3-5 minutes you will hit 2 other beaches, both gorgeous and serene (see photos).

The villa is fully furnished in a tropical decor, with a full service kitchen, an eating area, living room, 1 large bedroom, and 2 full baths. There is also a table and chairs on the covered front porch, which is perfect for any outdoor meal (pick up some take-out from Splash if you don’t feel like cooking!). Several restaurants, including the local fish fry (a great place to try authentic conch salad!), are in walking distance.

The Beach Club provides a free shuttle bus into George Town, where you can stock up on food, visit the straw market & shops, or take a water taxi to Stocking Island. The Beach Club also offers (free) the use of sea kayaks. When you are ready to go exploring- there are several half-day/all-day boating excursions available that will take you to visit numerous other islands, including the swimming pigs, iguana island, and many other beautiful uninhabited islands that make up the 365 islands of the Exuma Islands.

Come relax- and enjoy this secret paradise!!

About George Needham

I love to travel to islands and beaches with my wife and two daughters. We enjoy a safe and secluded environment for our vacations. Exuma met all of our requirements and absolutely blew us away.

George Needham purchased this villa in 2007

Why George Needham chose George Town

My wife and I took our girls to Exuma for the first time when they were around the ages of 9 and 12. We have been in love with it ever since and we would like to share its beauty. It is safe and small, like a secret, secluded island.

Great place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay mid August 2017.

Staff was great, Splash Bar and grill was tasty, handy and fun.

Jolly Hall beach a quick walk up the beach was amazing.

We had a car so didn't use the shuttle but saw many who did.

AC in the room cranked!

We felt our 3 and 6 year old boys were always in a safe setting.

Pool was perfect temp.

Beach and water in front of the room was blissful.

We looked around the island at other ideas for future places to stay and decided we had lucked out on our first trip.

We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice words about Exuma and our resort and villa. Exuma is a special place for our family as well. Our grown daughters have been visiting there since childhood. We have many friends on the island and keep in touch through social media. We are fortunate to have guests like your family that appreciate the wonders of the Exumas. We love to share our villa with the many nice people we have met through VRBO and Homeaways! We're it not for our guests, we would not have our little piece of paradise. Please tell your friends. However, until they have been there, they just won't understand! Thanks again and hope you will return soon. Regards, George

We swam with the pigs and nurse sharks then snorkels through a small cave, after that saw iguanas!

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely wonderful!! People were great and we felt very safe here. I am already saving for next year! It is a little pricy so you just have to plan for it.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this unit. Right on the water. The unit was clean and spacious. The grounds were well maintained. You can even call Elvis' Water Taxi and they will pick you up right in front. George was always friendly and quick to respond when we were booking. We really liked staying at Hideaways. The neighbors were nice but you really didn't see each other very often. The walk to Jolly Hall was easy and worth it. The snorkeling right out front around the little island was fun. Not about the unit but about Hideaways, if you like to grill be aware they charge for grills. If you want clean towels, just ask they will give them to you. Don't hesitate, book. It is a great unit in a great location.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this unit. The location could not be more perfect with Jolly Hall Beach just a short walk away and lots of great places to eat within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Spent hours sitting on the porch watching the turtles and rays in the bay. Used the kayaks and spent a morning out on the water. We had a car and it is just a short distance into town for the grocery store, liquor store and the bank. We will definitely be back.

We strongly recommend staying at the Diamond Palm Villa at the Hideaways Palm Bay, Exuma, Bahamas!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travelled to George Town in Great Exuma, Bahamas and stayed in the Diamond Palm Villa for 7 nights on our one-year anniversary, honeymoon, but please know this secret gem of the Caribbean should be frequented for any occasion. Please allow me to send an enormous amount of thanks, gratitude, and sincere appreciation to the owner for allowing us to rent Diamond Palm for 7 nights, for all of the pre-arrival/itinerary local recommendations of eats, activities, must-do's, etc. and most of all for him being so cool and accommodating and easy to reach and work with even after having to push the trip back 5 weeks because of Hurricane Matthew. The George Town, Hideaways, and entire Exuma community are just fantastic. We could not have had more of a memorable, pleasurable, fulfilling honeymoon/one-year anniversary anywhere else! Everything he told us was spot on including how much happier we will be staying here and experiencing the entire island of Great Exuma instead of just staying at Sandals Emerald Bay.

Wake up to a stunning sunrise over the gorgeous sparkling waters of the Elizabeth Harbour! When you are ready to hit the beach, you can literally jump from your doorstep into the soft white Caribbean sand! Not only is the water calm and clear, but the view includes beautiful Stocking Island. As this villa is part of Palm Bay Beach Club, you also have the option of swimming in a pool, also with a view of the ocean, just steps away from the villa. The beach club’s indoor/outdoor restaurant/bar, Splash, is just steps way as well.

The beach is quiet and secluded; however, if you prefer an even more private spot- just keep walking north, and in about 3-5 minutes you will hit 2 other beaches, both gorgeous and serene (see photos).

Several restaurants, including the local fish fry (a great place to try authentic conch salad!), are in walking distance.

The Hideaways at Palm Bay provides a free shuttle that runs into George Town every 2 hours from 9 am to 5 pm

The safeness, family-oriented, lifestyle of the Exuma community is what has me missing it right now and wishing to return to sooner than later - Casey McCarthy
