About Samantha Monson
The Applebys and Monsons have been best of friends for over 35 years in Vail, Colorado. Our children, who are now adults, grew up together. We now have a great home on the most beautiful beach in the world - a place to enjoy family get togethers completely different from the Rocky Mountains.
Samantha Monson purchased this House in 2008
Why Samantha Monson chose George Town
The first time we came to Exuma was in 1995 to invest in a resort with a golf course, marina, hotel, and homesites. The developer went belly-up, however, another developer came in and built the Four Seasons Resort and Greg Norman golf course on this property. We fell in love with the Island and its people. So in 2000 we were able to purchase our lot on Tar Bay, which is the longest sandy beach in Exuma some 2 miles of white sand and aqua crystal clear water. The beach is protected from the Exuma Sound and the Atlantic Ocean by barrier reefs and barrier Cays. We hired a Nassau architectural firm and drew up three different plans over a 4 year period. Finally, we came up with the perfect plan and built our beautiful beach house taking two years of construction. Building on the island was very arduous and time consuming since everything must be shipped via a container boat from Miami. We also had to deal with customs agents and island natives as builders. All in all it was worth it since we love 'Belle Mer Cottage.' Many of our international neighbors on Exuma consider our home the most beautiful on Tar Bay.
What makes this House unique
The beach house has two identical master suites for the two owners. We also have two additional master suites upstairs and an overflow bedroom above the garage. Each suite has a flat screen TV and king bed with wonderful bedding. The great room has a 58 inch smart HD television capable of accessing your own internet-based accounts (e.g., Netflix and Amazon Prime), Blu-ray, Nintendo Wii, iPod docking station, and WiFi. The kitchen is all stainless steel appliances with dishwasher, double refrigerators/freezers, beverage center, oven range, microwave and all small appliances (e.g., coffee maker). We love to cook and grill at the house since we have what we consider the best view on the island. Our veranda has large comfortable soft seating with the beautiful white sand and lapping aqua water within 40 feet from the steps. The outside shower is a real treat after spending time in the ocean. Belle Mer Cottage is only 3 miles from Georgetown International Airport, 4 miles from GeorgeTown with great local restaurants and island bars, and 5 miles from the Sandals Resort with a golf course and casino. Belle Mer is paradise on the friendliest Island in the Bahamas. Come join us and leave your worries at home. Welcome to Great Exuma! Your Hosts, The Applebys and Monsons
