Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Coconut Cottage is a beautifully furnished, recently built ocean view cottage with wrap-round porch, situated at a small, private development known as 'The Cays' at Hermitage Bay, Great Exuma Island. There is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and laundry area. There are three bedrooms, two bedrooms with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms plus a third full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and french doors leading out onto the porch. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the third has a full sized bed. All bed and bath linens are provided, including beach towels

The house is fully airconditioned throughout, plus high ceilings and ceiling fans in all rooms.

The beach and pool area are a 25 yard walk down a path, and feature a cabana with an 'honour bar', barbeque/picnic area, outside shower and rest rooms. Although it is a communal pool, all but two of the other properties are owned by absentee owners, so most of the time one has the pool and pool area to oneself. There are also fantastic, long, deserted white sand beaches just a few minutes drive away.

We are situated literally about half way between the airport and the town of George Town. There is a full supermarket in George Town which is about 10 minutes drive, or there is a small grocery store and liquor store about 5 minutes away.

There are several first class restaurants within a short drive, and one excellent one right next door. You can walk there.

One of the biggest attractions Exuma has to offer is the bonefishing. This really is bonefishermen's paradise, and there are several experienced bonefish guides. Our property manager can help you with making bookings. The scuba diving is also a big attraction and is absolutely spectacular.

Concierge service is available upon request, and can include airport pick-up and catering if required.

Keywords: Recently built, tastefully decorated island home. Community pool and private beach with BBQ and picnic area.

One more night wouldn't be enough!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful clean home! Great porch for dinners! Awesome location both in the Cays development and on the island. Norm and Julie are the property managers that greet you. FIVE STAR would how I would rate Norm and Julie's service. They care about every aspect of your stay. They make you feel like the cottage is your home away from home. If you are blessed enough to stay at the Cays then you need to go down to Sunset Bar (development's BYOB) every night at 5pm to visit with the other guests and hear Norms stories. The beach is amazing. The sunset views are the best on the island! Such a well maintained and private place to stay. And I can't close without mentioning Norm and Julie's dogs. They bring a little more home and smiles to this amazing corner of the world.

Owner's Response: I am so very happy that you enjoyed your stay in my cottage. When one cannot be "on site" it is very gratifying to hear that everything is satisfactory and running smoothly. My thanks too to Norman and Julie, my property managers for doing such a great job.

Great Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Some coworkers and I booked the Coconut Cottage for several days. The house was great! Great location near the Catch A Fire restaurant. The property manager, Norm, was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend the Coconut Cottage on your next trip the beautiful Exuma!

Where do we begin ...... Coconut Cottage was all we had wished for and much more. Home from home, with everything you could possibly want in it. So relaxing outside sitting on the wrap around verandas, comfortable chairs and table, with a large BBQ - which we never got round to using! We were amazed at the interior of the home, lovely kitchen and anything you needed was there. Dining and living areas so comfortable, with large TV and WiFi. Three beautifully decorated bedrooms and bathrooms. Laundry room with washing machine, dryer, iron & ironing board. Large closets in all bedrooms, extra bedding, towels & beach towels .... the list is endless!

Swimming pool and beach two minutes walk from the cottage, not to mention the hammocks set amongst the coconut trees, all so peaceful and relaxing.

A short walk away is 'Catch A Fire' a lovely outdoor restaurant, delicious food and brilliant sunset.

We had a wonderful two weeks at the cottage, thankyou so much ....can't wait to go back!

First visit to Great Exuma

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I had a wonderful time on our vacation. Coconut Cottage was perfect. We had everything we needed. Very comfortable there. We will return. Being three females traveling we felt very safe on Exuma. The weather was wonderful, we had some thunder and lighting and rain showers. We could not have asked for a more perfect stay.

Another great visit to Coconut Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful 12 days at Coconut Cottage, our second trip. This time was a bit like going "home" , everything was just as we remembered it. We were greeted by the managers, Norman and Julie, who are always available to answer any questions you may have. And I think the dogs actually recognized us!

We visited all our favourite restaurants--Santanas, Tropic Breeze, Splash, Paradise Bay, Big D's to name a few. This year we also had lunch at February Point which has a lovely restaurant open the public...a lovely spot to spend the afternoon.

Also visited Mom's Bakery for our rum cake, coconut bread and hugs from Mom.

All our favourite beaches were also visited, not to be missed is Coco Plum Beach..Make sure to visit at lowtide ; you can walk out forever and it is great for sand dollars.

Coconut Cottage is a lovely home, decorated beautifully...spacious and inviting. The three bedrooms are large and well furnished, lots of room in the closets. The kitchen is well equipped; everything you need including the blender for your margaritas!

There is a basket of beach towels by the door, a large BBQ on the deck. The washer and dryer are appreciated as you can pack lightly.

The grocery stores in town and Smitty's nearby are all well equipped; there is no need to bring anything from home.

We rented a car from Janese from Sure to Shore and found she was great to deal with and the car was clean and in excellent shape. A car is necessary on the island, and they can be a little expensive, but well worth it as you can explore all parts of the island. Janese had the car waiting at the airport for us when we arrived, and we left it at the airport when we left.

Weather was wonderful, no-seeums can be bad dusk, try baby oil...it seems to help.

The Cays is a beautiful area, the pool is never busy and it is a nice place to visit late in the day and hear about other visitors adventures. Norman and/or Julie can always be found there late afternoon and the sunsets are amazing.

A great, relaxing holiday and I highly recommend both The Cays in general and Coconut Cottage in particular.

Thanks Joanna and family for once again sharing your home with us!

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We love The Exumas. The magnificent beaches, great food and friendly people make it a wonderful place to visit. Coconut Cottage is a beautiful home, equipped with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed visiting a new beach everyday, shopping at the local shops including Smitty's and Prime Island Meats, lunch out at the many restaurants, Santana's, Tropical Breeze, Paradise Bay, Big D's, Splash, Chat n' Chill to name some. Most nights were spent on the spacious deck barbequing dinner and enjoying the sunsets.

Norman and Julie ,as hosts, who live in The Cays with their family of dogs, were helpful and informative.

The straw market and the old tree in the centre of town burnt to the ground while we were there but the community is already hard at work to replace it so it will soon rise again and we wish them well in their endeavors.

Joanna was quick to respond to any questions prior to arrival and the booking was simple and uncomplicated.

This is a home, not a vacation rental, and the clock in the kitchen says it all....".Bahamian Time".......Relax, Unwind and Enjoy.

It was a pleasure to visit Coconut Cottage and this island and we thank Joanna and her family for allowing us to share their home.....we hope to return......
