Beautiful Relaxing Sea View Home in Tranquil Exuma, Bahamas.

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage


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.

The Coconut Cottage was perfect for our family. It had enormous space and the 3 bathrooms were great

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed. My children enjoyed going down to the beach to fish and swim in the pool. Norman and Julie (the caretakers) was always there to give us suggestions on tours and beaches. People in the Cays were very friendly. The Cottage was very nice and spacious. It had everything we needed to cook meals and go to the beach. Recommend renting a car to explore the beautiful island and beaches

Beautiful home and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a tranquil area 10 minutes to George Town. The home had all the ameneties including a cooler that we borrowed on our beach/boating days. Recommend the Rusty Anchor for a nice dinner, Shirleys Fish Fry and Big D’s conch house. You can actually snorkel right off the beach there. We rented a boat at Minns and snorkeled. Beautiful reefs!!!

Coconut Cottage was impeccable and we felt like we were right at home with the ameneties. Joanna communicated well through booking and check out. Perfect for families.

Great Experience!!

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.
