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.

Wonderful stay in Exuma's best location-Tar Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down best location on Exuma. Close to the airport, close to town but beautiful, private beach setting.

Great natural beauty. The expanse of the geography made much of it virtually private.

  • 4 of 5

Yellow bird house is ideally suited on a beautiful private beach. Wonderful experience.

STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

As you have read before the views are even better than the pictures. The house was perfect. It was well stocked with most things you need. In fact I would check the house before you went grocery shopping to get exactly what you need. The views were stunning, Shayvonne was very nice and helpful. I would certainly recommend staying here. There were several beach chairs and floats. A few notes that may be helpful away from the home: almost everything in Georgetown closes around 5:00ish. There is no store I would consider within walking distance to the house. If you are renting a boat it must be back by 5:00, if you do not rent a vehicle, cab rides for family of 4 are $30-$40 each time you get in. I would highly recommend the Coastline Excursion to see pigs, iguanas, etc. It completed the entire trip with the excitement and beauty. And thank you to Greg for sharing your home with my family.

My Blue Heaven was PERFECT 😍?! It was as close to Heaven as possible!

  • 5 of 5

My Blue Heaven was right on the beach. It was only three steps down onto the 2 mile beach, Tar Bay~what could be better and what an amazing beach! The Villa has everything one could possibly dream of. It was very hard leaving My Blue Heaven and Exuma 😓? We hope to come back soon 💗?

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get, but the pictures tell only part of the story. While the house and surroundings are impeccable, the location of the property is an added bonus, especially if you want to explore more of Great Exuma and Little Exuma. It won't take half your day to travel to the south end or the north end and Georgetown is only 10 minutes away.

We enjoyed every aspect of staying at My Blue Heaven (Yellow Bird House). You can tell the owner cares very much for the property and makes sure your stay will be a great experience. The caretaker, Shayvonne, was a pleasure to deal with and did everything and more to make us feel comfortable.

A big thank you to both of you!

The yellow bird is definitely heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at the house. We went once with adults and once with our children. It is simply perfect. The house has everything you need and the beach cannot be topped. It is stunning. We love the location. We will be back again!
