Overview

About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

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 Great Exuma

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.

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.

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

Great low key getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Swam or snorkeled most every day. Kayaked several times including out to Jolly Hall beach. Several visits to Stocking Island. Rented car for several days to get to Tropic of Cancer Beach, Santana's and ultimately back to airport. Several nights of rake and scrape music, appreciated that could find good food and music early as we are early to bed early to rise types. The day long excursion was well worth it. The owner, George was a pleasure to deal with. Unit was comfortable had everything we needed. Other than sleeping spent most of our time there drinking coffee on porch to watch the sunrise, or unwinding at the end of the day with a little Bahamian rum. Hideaways was very low key clean and friendly resort. There a three resorts in this little cove each with a restraunt and bar, so you can literally walk down the beach for dinner. We were also able to arrange for the water taxi to pick us up several times from the dock several hundred yards down the beach.
