About the Property
2BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Staniel Cay, Bahamas
The house is located on Staniel Cay, an island with a very small population, right on Exuma Sound. It sits on a private, sandy beach with calm, shallow swimming in the crystal-clear water.
Great sunsets can be viewed from the screened-in porch. The house has two bedrooms and a bath. A large common room contains a living area with three day bed/couches, a dining/game table that comfortably seats ten, and a complete kitchen. There are some additional air mattresses. This common room has sliding doors, and can open almost completely to a 40' x 12' screened-in porch.
The house is equipped with overhead fans -- over the beds and the dining room table. There are also some additional floor fans. A ship-to-shore radio is provided for communicating with boats, other homes, and restaurants. There's usually a daily broadcast of local activities and weather.
Additional amenities include a radio with CD and tape, and assorted games and books on the shelves.
The island is small (2.5 by .5 miles) and 'town' is a 15-minute walk away. Four bikes come with the house, and others are available to rent in town.
Berkie and Vivian Rolle manage our house, and will see that you are met at the plane and taken to the house. They operate 'I'sle General Store' -- one of three grocery stores on the island. They can also rent you a boat.
Nearby attractions include 'Thunderball Grotto' a great place to dive and site of the James Bond Movie 'Thunderball'.
Also nearby are The Tast'n Sea-- for drinking and dining and The Staniel Cay Yacht Club -- for drinking and dining.
There are hundreds of deserted beaches, and two pristine ocean beaches. Island activities include bone fishing, snorkeling, diving, conch collecting, and relaxing. Lobster coral reefs and deep-sea fishing are within one-half mile of land.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Our house in the Bahamas is located on Staniel Cay which is a small island in the Exuma's. The Exuma's are a chain of islands that run from south of Nassau for about 150 miles to Georgetown. Staniel Cay is located about in the middle. I can send you a Google earth placement if you contact me.
Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Bill & Nancy Nightingale We live in Vermont and have always enjoyed privacy and places off the beaten path.
Why the Owner Chose Exuma, Bahamas:
Descovered it in 1985 and fell in love with the Island and people immediately. This was available - we had a young family - and very little resources - no time to build - so we purchased this house located on a beautiful beach. Our goal was to be able to enjoy the island, the beautiful water and beautiful people with our kids and eventually our grand children.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is very simple. We have tried to keep it that way. It is a place for the family to gather and not be interrupted by TV etc. The boating is fantastic (diving, fishing, exploring etc.). The Island has alot to offer. Three restaurants and bars, periodic island picnics, and great beaches.. There are many near islands and reefs to explore and bone and deep sea fishing.
