Many direct flights from Toronto (3.5hrs), Miami (1 hour), Atlanta ( 2 hrs) and Nassau (35min)serve this carefree, casual and quaint island.

Exuma provides a perfect balance of simplicity and amenities for families, executives, couples and friends wanting to escape the stresses of work and everyday life. If you love white sand, pristine waters, surfing, snorkeling, golfing, fishing, scuba diving, boating, fresh fish and friendly people...then you will fall in love with Great Exuma.

The new house offers a 1100 square foot Great Room with lounging, media and dining areas. There are four-500 square foot, King-size master suites with ensuites that include walk in showers, soaking tubs and private toileting areas . The gourmet kitchen offers solid surface counters, double refrigerators, dishwasher, induction cooktop and everything needed for preparing great meals. Nearby restaurants and in-house chef services are also available.

A 1000 square foot wrap around porch, overlooking the beach, provides outdoor living areas next to the sparkling, warm waters of Exuma. This is one of the best beaches in Exuma. No hotels or public beach access permitted along our beach. You are often the only people on the beach but it is central to all island amenities making this location the most convenient on all of Great Exuma.

Within eight minutes of leaving the airport you will be sipping a cool drink on the white sand beach beside the emerald waters of Tar Bay. The bay is protected by a reef a mile away and the sandy bottom and shallow waters are safe for kids. The crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkeling and on a calm day- kayaking is a must. The summer water temperature is 85 degrees.

A short 8 minute drive east you will find the charming and friendly town of Georgetown, capital of this island archipelago of 3800 permanent residents. You will find everything you need for meal and drink preparation, satisfy your urge to shop at the straw market and boutiques and visit interesting historic sites. Order up some fresh Lobster, Grouper, Tuna or Mahi Mahi from the local fisherman and they will deliver it to the house.

This is a low key, laid back island with none of the hustle and bustle of tourist destinations- perfect for a relaxing vacation - Don't expect casinos, fast food restaurants and designer shopping here. The Exumas will offer a vacation where you reconnect with yourself and your family and friends.

Rent a boat, or hire an experienced captain from Minn's boat rentals to explore the clear, calm waters of Elizabeth Harbour. Don't forget to see the crustaceans at Starfish Beach and visit Sand Dollar beach to hunt for these treasures. A freshly made conch salad and cold Kalik beer at or Big D's or Chat and Chill on Stocking Island is a necessity for this boat trip. If boat rental is not an option for you then a water taxi will get you to Stocking island where you can partake in the fun with other sailors, visitors and locals. Have fun with a game of beach volleyball on the sand court , sip an icy Bahama Mama cocktail on a beach chair or feed the domesticated stingrays that hang out looking for food and a stroke on the back.

The love of water is probably the greatest attraction to Exuma. Here you can take your pick of Scubadiving (Dive Exuma), Parasurfing, snorkelling and even surfing on the ocean side of Stocking Island.

Bone-fishing enthusiasts know that Exuma is top-ranked for this sport. There are many charter companies available for hire for deep sea fishing too..

Exuma is like home. Friendly, relaxing and inviting.

About Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc.

Our family fell head over heels in love for the Exumas because it provided a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Exuma offers friendly people and quaint lifestyle that lets you 'chill out'. There are no shopping malls, fast food chains, cruise ships, or stop lights. Exuma has the perfect balance of things to do and see, restaurants, gift shops, sports and an abundance of times when you will feel like doing nothing. Our first vacation to Exuma was the best vacation we had ever had. We returned refreshed and rejuvenated. We feel fortunate that we can offer guests this wonderful island home.

Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. purchased this House in 2012

Why Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. chose Exuma

This property has a perfect location because it is only 8 minutes from the airport. After the stress of flying you breeze through the Georgetown airport, walk 50 paces to pick up your rental car and within an 8 minute drive you are relaxing on the porch, with a cold drink. Don't worry the airplanes are not a disturbance as there are only a handful of flights per day. The 3 hour flight from Toronto is non-stop with Air Canada (search "Air Canada Vacations" for flights) on Sundays and Thursdays (Winter). There are direct flights also from Atlanta (Delta), Nassau and Miami. The house is centrally located on the island, close to shopping in Georgetown, restaurants and Sandals golf course. Did we mention that it is on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach you will ever encounter. With water so clear and warm and of the colour blue that you will never forget.

That the house is so well laid out and has a true chefs kitchen filled with top notch pots, pans, utensils, knives, and spices, plus such a vast assortment of dinner ware and glass ware, made the experience that much more enjoyable! Thank you, Luc and Cindy, for sharing your corner of paradise with us.

The private, quiet beach stretches for miles and the water is that aqua colour that you never get tired of viewing. Our family had a wonderful time together here and for sure we will be back!

                                                                  Our favourite place in the Bahamas!

A fabulous kitchen worked into an amazing living space. There was every kitchen tool imaginable and everything was delightfully organized. The porch and view was unparalleled in setting the scene for a relaxing Exuma getaway. The arrival was seamless and we felt welcomed and very fortunate to be somewhere so special and comfortable. We are already planning our return!

It had all the comforts you would expect in a luxury vacation home. Nothing was overlooked. We would highly recommend this home. Beautifully designed.

Our stay at Nemo House was very relaxing, and we enjoyed the sun, the beach, and the amazing water every day. Can't wait to go back!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Our family enjoyed a fabulous vacation on the beach staying at Nemo House. The house is beautiful, comfortable and clean, with all of the amenities you could ask for. The beach - just steps from the back porch - is absolutely picturesque and we enjoyed many hours of building sand castles and swimming in the crystal-clear water. Finally, our day trip with snorkeling, swimming with many water creatures, and touring other islands was a blast. We can't wait to go back!

                                                                  Location

                                                                  Great Exuma is an island of simplicity and solitude and the colour of the water around this picturesque Bahamian island is unlike any other. Your stay at Nemo house in Great Exuma will be a relaxing one. You can watch the kids play on the child safe beach while you enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch. In the evenings enjoy the calming sound of the surf nearby while you enjoy a freshly caught lobster dinner, or go to a local restaurant 'Rake and Scrape' or the Fish Fry for some local food, music and entertainment. The clear, warm waters provide excellent fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. On a calm day you can wade into the shallow, white sand bottom waters and on a windy day the waves are high enough for surfing off Stocking island. Nearby Georgetown offers boat rentals, boat guides, grocery and liquor stores as well as restaurants and shops. A short 15 minute drive west to Sandals Emerald Bay resort will bring you to the Spa at Sandals and the Greg Norman designed golf course. Georgetown International Airport welcomes many direct flights from Toronto (3 hours), Nassau (35Min), Miami (1 hour) and Atlanta (2 hours)
