Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

This beautiful, two story townhouse unit, built in 2007, is just steps from the white sand beach of Elizabeth Harbour. Professionally decorated in upscale island charm Unit 37 offers a spacious fully equipped and well appointed home with stunning views of tropical islands & crystal Caribbean waters. The thoughtfully designed main level is comprised of guest storage, a library & 2 bedrooms, each with their own private bath. The open & inviting upper level offers a full sized kitchen, dining & living areas, computer station, a half bath, & balcony access. Let your cares melt away as you enjoy the the sun rises over Lee Stocking Island and Elizabeth Harbour. Walk the tranquil & pristine Sandy Beach of Palm Bay & just around the corner, Jolly Hall Beach. Snorkel the azur Bahamian waters just steps from your villa and be awed by the reefs & abundance of sea life. Whatever dreams you have for your Island experience, opportunities are endless...

Great Exuma is a small, but inviting island with endless opportunities to experience the Bahamian way. A short trip to Georgetown allows you to visit local restaurants, buy groceries and gas, get your hair done, or order fresh caught fish. A visit to the local 'Straw Market' is a great way to pick up a few trinkets and t-shirts and watch local ladies weave straw baskets. You may even be lucky enough to pick up some fresh local veggies for supper. Fishing supplies and boat and fishing guide rentals are available. A pedestrian ferry, also located in Georgetown carries folks over to Stocking Island, a barrier island just off the east coast of central Exuma. Experience the unforgettable, traditional 'pig roast' at The Chat & Chill , get closeup and personal with huge rays or be really adventuresome and taste a local special 'conch salad'! Do some sail boat watching, snorkeling and exploring, which might even lead you to the other side of the island, open seas and great beach combing.

If you're more inclined to a driving adventure, there is a car rental agency 2 minutes walk from your vacation home. Drive up or down island to experience historic sites, amazing tropical scenery and more public and sometimes not so accessible beaches. Shoot a round at the fabulous Greg Norman Signature Golf Course, at Sandals Resort, just 15 minutes drive north of Palm Bay Resort.

And don't miss the evening 'Fish Fry'! Whether you're into the fresh caught fish of the day, prepared in any of many Bahamian ways or chicken and ribs over a huge drum barbeque, be sure to wander down the Queen's Highway about a half mile to a collection of kiosks and picnic tables called 'Fish Fry'! Yum!

Scuba diving adventures are amazing as the out islands provide opportunities for a variety of diving skills. Bring your gear or rent, and guides on the island will ensure you have a great day!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location, such a beautiful spacious condo, two sisters couldn't ask for anything more! This well equipped place held hidden secrets, a cubby with water toys, float rafts, noodles, even grass skirts if you want to hula!! Just a short jaunt along the most beautiful beach line brought us to the most pristine, gorgeous beach that you really don't want to leave. Paradise. No words describe the emerald water, the shades of blue, the powder white sand. We met first timers that could not believe the beauty, the absolute serenity of the island, the graciousness and the kindness of the local people. Having travelled quite a lot, my sister and I agree this island is one of the last surviving islands where you don't have to worry about getting robbed, harassed or intimidated when you venture out. Do rent a car and see what the island offers, and come back to your home away from home. This unit could easily house two couples, the rooms are large, the bathrooms well appointed and the kitchen well stocked with the essentials. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Sandi for a wonderful stay!!

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had been to the Exumas before, but wanted to take our girls (13 and 16). We knew we had to have a place with a pool, beach and a restaurant. This unit was perfect. We rented a car and got groceries in town for breakfast and lunches. We ate dinner out each night, mostly at Splash, which is the restaurant on the property. I have no complaints about this unit at all. Now, my kids will complain about the sketchy wi-fi, but we didn't mind it! Highly recommend this VRBO member!

The best option at Palm Bay and in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other Hideaways at Palm Bay rentals before and this was by far the best. The town home was spacious, clean, and well stocked. A great feature of this two story town home is the deck on the second level. Compared to the single story cottages, it was wonderful to be able to sit on the second story deck, enjoy the breeze and view, and not get eaten up by no see-ums. We brought a suitcase full of food and were able to cook all our meals in the well stocked kitchen. We made smoothies in the blender, baked in the oven and were able to prepare everything we desired. The furniture was comfortable as well as the beds. The AC worked well and the cable and wifi service was great. We have stayed all over the world and are used to budget accommodations, however we felt this was a luxury stay and a great value. We used the resorts paddle boards and kayaks and walked to a beautiful secluded beach just around the corner from the condo on days we weren't on our boat. Most days we rented a boat and explored the islands. Rides into town to shop or retrieve the boat were simple and timely with the resort's free shuttle service. To top it off, the owners were lovely to work with, very accommodating, and informative. If you're going to stay in Exuma this is the place to get!

Second stay in the fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this fabulous villa. It really is the perfect place to call home while in Exuma. It has everything you need for your stay. Having a washer and dryer is an added bonus, means you get to pack less! The location is very convenient, about 15 minutes from the airport and even less time to downtown where the grocery and marina and multiple restaurants are located. Palm Bay offers a shuttle service to town for no charge! We will definitely be staying here again in the future, hopefully sooner than later! Be sure to rent a boat from Minns so you can get out and explore the wonderful Elizabeth Harbor. So much to see, beautiful secluded beaches, wild life in its natural habitat, sand banks that will blow your mind with their beauty and Chat N Chill beach bar just to name a few. Thanks Mike and Sandi for your hospitality! We will be in touch again soon.
