About Greg Hiebert
After selling my company in 2012 I purchased a sailing cameraman. We took our children out of school for the year and started our journey visiting numerous places in Europe, Britain, The Canary islands, and eventually crossed the ocean and made my way through the Caribbean. In 2013 we stumbled on Exuma was by far the most beautiful island we had ever visited. We were very fortunate to be able to purchase a perfect piece of property on a spectacular beach. We then started the long and challenging construction process. The finished product with spectacular views and many unique features has made this all worth while. We are delighted and overwhelmed to hear about the thrilling experiences the numerous guests of Sea Escape had!

Paradise by the Sea
Our family has rented many homes in Hawaii, Florida, Mexico, & California, but SHADES OF BLUE is the BEST by far!! Spacious kitchen & oceanfront living room, ALL rooms have ocean views, a master bedroom with wall to wall windows looking out onto the turquoise sea. The infinity pool, jacuzzi, deck & patio are beautiful. The expansive ocean view is absolutely breathtaking. We had the beach all to ourselves. We loved the natural lazy river just around the bend. Super fun!! There was no sandy entry point from the house into the ocean (as pictured) due to seasonal sand shifting. We walked down the steps, over the rocks, and into the ocean. There is a lovely, sandy beach right next door. We had great weather & a lovely breeze. Bring bug repellent and Cortizone cream to deal with the noseeums that come out at dawn/dusk. Definitely book a boat excursion with Theo Gray: snorkeling, sea stars, turtles, Chat & Chill. He was amazing! Dinner at Santana's was delicious, yummy conch fritters. We had a wonderful time and didn't want to leave. Greg & Becky are excellent hosts. Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to return.
We went into this vacation with high expectations and this property did not disappoint. After a day of hectic travel all of the stress melted away after we walked through the doors of the Shades of Blue house. Greg, Judy and Beauren made sure that our anniversary trip went off without a hitch and that all of our 12 guests enjoyed themselves. Judy had the house stocked with groceries and even had her girls come over a couple nights and cook dinners for us! If you want to come relax and enjoy the beautiful waters of the Bahamas this is the place for you. The house is placed perfectly between the lazy river and Tropic of Cancer Beach. You can’t beat it! We will definitely be back! Thanks again!
Fabulous Family Vacation
We vacation as a family every year--there are 15 of us. This was the best vacation we have had--all of us, adults and kids, would have turned around and done another week no questions asked!! Beauren was our property manager for the week and he was the best. He was so responsive to all our needs. He scheduled transportation, got our jet skis, and handled everything we wanted. The owner even emailed me a couple times making sure we had everything we needed. The house looked exactly like it did on line and the pool was fabulous!! This whole week couldn't have been better all around.
We absolutely loved this property! We celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary with our family. The beauty of Exuma is stunning and we highly recommend this location and property as a vacation destination.
Can’t wait to go back
This house is amazing! The view from every room is gorgeous! Our party of 10 had a fantastic time. Greg was very helpful in getting info to us to so we could plan the perfect spring break. Judy Gray helped with our cars, meals, boat excursions and she even had her daughter and her friend come over to braid our girls' hair. We had a cook come over and prepare the fish and lobster we caught on the fishing excursion, It was delicious! We loved going down to the Tropic of Cancer beach to snorkel. We also went over to Chat and Chill for a day to have lunch and play on the beach. Our kids loved the seeing the sting rays up close! Our favorite night out was to Peace and Plenty, be sure to call for a reservation so you can sit out on the patio. Lunch at Tropic Breeze was great too.
Overall we had an awesome trip and made memories we will cherish forever. Just a few things to know about the house. The stairs that lead down the beach can be totally inaccessible due to the water level. There are many rocks and the water can get quite high. Our kids could not manage it themselves. You can go down the neighbors stairs, which isn't a problem, just a bit of an inconvenience. The house was overall fairly clean, but could have used a good wipe down on doors, appliances, tables, etc. We still give the house 5 stars because of the view, remoteness and layout. Our kids loved the bunk beds, foosball table and the poker chips.
