Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Guests staying at My Blue Heaven (known previously as Yellow Bird House) are only steps away from some of the most beautiful secluded beaches and crystal clear water found anywhere in the world! The beach is very quiet and family friendly. Our home is conveniently located to all the restaurants, bars, grocery and liquor stores. My Blue Heaven is only 5 minutes from the airport and less than 10 minutes from Georgetown. It is perfectly located for those who enjoy getting out and enjoying the island or those wanting to relax at the house and enjoy the miles of pristine beaches.

The house is fully appointed with linens and towels for guests. Each bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bathroom. There is a full AeroBed for additional guests. The home has a fully stocked kitchen for those meals that you are wanting to eat at home, sit back and enjoy the beautiful view. Wanting to grill the fresh fish you just caught? Feel free to use the gas grill on the back veranda.

The home also has a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

Things to do: If you are feeling adventurous and would like to explore the beautiful turquoise waters you can rent kayaks, jet skis or Boston Whalers to explore on your own. Or if you would like to have friendly local guides show you an amazing day you can contact Island Boy Adventures. You can call Elvis to take a water taxi to Chat n Chill for lunch and a local favorite: The Goombay Smash. If you are into bone fishing, Exuma has some of the best in the world.

While the waters are absolutely amazing, there is a lot to do on land. The local residents are amazing. With their beautiful smiles and happy go lucky attitudes they will graciously welcome you to their island. There is very little crime on the island, so you can feel safe exploring and enjoying all of the charming restaurants and stores on the island. Be sure to visit the famous straw market where the local merchants sell their goods.

We have additional photos and would be happy to email them upon request.

About Greg Haus

My Blue Heaven (previously known as Yellow Bird House) was built in 1993 by Charles Lamb for he and his family to enjoy this beautiful piece of paradise. My wife and I recently purchased the home from this lovely family. We have been coming to Exuma for over 15 years. We are hoping to share this amazing island and My Blue Heaven with you. We have two young children that absolutely love coming to Exuma. We are sure you will enjoy this beautiful place as much as we do.

Greg Haus purchased this house in 2016

Why Greg Haus chose Bahamas

Silver Beach on Tar Bay is the best beach with the most beautiful water in all the the Bahamas... according to the Bahamians! We cannot disagree :) The crystal blue waters of the ocean are just steps away. The beach in front of the home is absolutely amazing. The beach is very quiet and there is a very good chance you will have the whole beach to yourself!

What makes this house unique

The location of the house is perfect. You are right on the most beautiful beach and you are very close to everything. You are only five minutes from the airport and about ten minutes to town. The grocery store, liquor store and bank are all within a ten minute drive. My Blue Heaven is truly a great place to escape to and relax. Even after many trips, the beach and water just outside our back door still takes our breath away.

Great house in a stunning beach location.

  • 5 of 5

My Blue Heaven is a great house, on a stunning beach, in a beautiful location.

We had a fantastic time on Exuma, the beach at Silver Beach,Tar Bay is so quiet and peaceful, the water is so blue and the sand is almost white.

The house had all the facilities required for a relaxing holiday, its location meant it was easy to explore the island. As a family we loved the fact that we could walk out of the house, straight into the sea, then just sit around chilling out.

Greg was easy to deal with and most accommodating with our requests, Shayvonne the housekeeper was so helpful in sorting out trips to the Cays, advice and local restaurants to try.

The restaurants were great and the people of Exuma were so warm and welcoming, with nothing being too much trouble.

We would recommend boat trips to the many Cays off Exuma, we particularly enjoyed Chat `N`Chill on Stocking Island, with the most enjoyable taxi ride, we have ever taken!

We will definitely return to My Blue Heaven.

A blue slice of heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at this house. Exuma is a place like no other. The island is small enough to feel like you are away from it all and yet big enough that you can eat at different restaurants and buy groceries at a few different markets. There is so much to do or you can do nothing at all. We did both! The house was well appointed and the beach out front was perfect. We went to almost a dozen different beaches all over the Exumas and always ended up remarking that they were beautiful but no better than the one directly in front of our house. My wife and I came with another couple and the house was perfect. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house separated by a living room and kitchen which gave us ample privacy. Overall, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Beautiful beach and house!

  • 5 of 5

The beach here was absolutely gorgeous! It is a beautiful location and the views from the house were wonderful! The house was very lovely and very well appointed. Very comfortable too. We loved it. It had everything one needs. Loved everything about the house, the location and the stunning beach. There is a little grocery store and liquor store very close to the house. The main town is not far away. We really enjoyed Shirley's Fish Fry which was not far and also enjoyed 'Catch A fire', also close to the house. We explored down to the south and to the north on the island. Going down to Little Exuma and the Tropic of Cancer beach is a must. The owner was great and easy to work with. We had such a fantastic time and a thank you to the owner for sharing this amazing house and most amazing beach and fantastic location! This was my 2nd time to Exuma and 1st time at this house. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and stay here again!

Beautiful Peacefulness

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week long stay at MY BLUE HEAVEN in Great Exuma. This was an absolutely great little place on the beach! Quiet and Private. Would definitely recommend this to any of our friends. Very nice that many kitchen items were available. Everything you could possibly need; its there in the house, to include snorkels masks and fins.

Right on the Beach!!! Excellent location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 couples which truly enjoyed our stay at the "Bird". When we walked in, saw the house and the beach we all went Wow!!!. Exactly what we needed to relax for a week. The accommodations were very good and the location was excellent on one of the most beautiful beaches we saw all week. Greg was helpful and provided good communication to any question. The new blue color will make the home look even nicer.

The home was clean and fully met our expectations. New appliances, fully stocked with towels, beach chairs, beach "toys" etc. Very comfortable for our week stay. The location to the beach is amazing. So close its just a few steps from the house to sand.

Tar Bay is simply an amazing beach. There were days we saw no one and I think the most we saw was 4 people on this beach. Off season or not, it was hard to believe. We rented a boat from Minn's Boat Rental for two days and still did not see everything in Elizabeth Harbor. From Starfish beach to Fowl Cay there is so much to see and have fun experiencing. This was our first time in Great Exuma and we will definitely be back.
