About the Property
Kevalli House is situated on 11+ acres of oceanfront land on Stocking Island, th
The Kevalli House Guest House is a newly renovated 2-bedroom, 1-bath house located on the eastern side of the property. The house provides a peaceful, private waterside living experience for long or short-term rental. It is ideal for a family of four with a large living space and full-sized kitchen, but is also a great spot for a couple's get-away. The house has an airy, screened-in wrap around porch and sun deck with closeup views of Exuma's famously crystal blue waters. There are several places to enjoy an evening of outdoor dining, a relaxing afternoon, or a morning meditation in the sun. Beautiful recycled cedar was used on the interior walls creating a casual island living feel and freshness.
Walkways from the guest house lead you through beautiful natural foliage to the pavilion and the covered beach deck and beach gate. On the very front of the property is a 200 foot long fixed dock which provides access to the cove. This protected body of water features two of the famous Bahamian blue holes. Mystery Cave is considered one of the best snorkeling spots in the area and is within snorkeling distance of the dock, or you may choose to use some of the kayaks or paddleboards that are available. Great snorkeling is also found 'ocean-side'. A floating dock provides access for small boats.
Kevalli House is a very eco-friendly choice. We are 99% solar-powered and meet our water needs by collecting rain water. We try to limit our impact on the environment as much as possible by using environmentally-friendly cleaning products, recycling, reusing, and reducing. Our paths are lit with solar-powered lights, fans and island breezes keep our rooms cool, and numerous windows catch evening breezes very effectively.
A 20 minute cab ride takes you from the airport to the government dock in George Town where the water taxi picks you up for the ride to Kevalli House. In George Town there are numerous businesses, including a well-stocked grocery store, car rental, boat rental, straw market, library, and a nice variety of restaurants. The Bahamas has over 300 sunny days a year, crystal clear warm water, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, one of which is right in the backyard of Kevalli House.
Kevalli House is the best choice for a tranquil island experience, with all of the comforts and natural amenities Exuma has to offer.

Car: Not Necessary
Kevalli House is situated on 11+ acres of oceanfront land on Stocking Island, the barrier island that forms Elizabeth Harbor. Because there are no motorized vehicles on the island and access is by boat only, much of the land on Stocking Island is pristine. This five mile long island contains only seven home sites of which Kevalli House is the furthest west. At Kevalli House, you are steps away from the beach, the harbor, boating, snorkeling, kayaking, and minutes away from beach bars, restaurants, and many secluded beaches to explore.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Bob Cronin is the owner of Kevalli House. After retiring from an active business life and many years of the cruising life, Bob fell in love with the beautiful waters of Exuma and the extraordinary property he calls Kevalli House. Over the last 6 years Bob has been working to renovate and restore this unique property.
Why the Owner Chose Exuma, Bahamas:
The Exuma Islands of the Bahamas have the most beautiful crystal, clear waters Bob has come across in all his travels. Exuma is a safe community and very welcoming to visitors. Stocking Island is pristine and remote, yet is conveniently located 1.5 miles from George Town, Great Exuma. Direct flights from Nassau, Florida (Miami and Fort Lauderdale), Atlanta, and Toronto make Great Exuma and Kevalli House very accessible.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kevalli House has direct, private access to both Elizabeth Harbour and a beautiful, sandy 2.5 mile long beach. Views of the water and ocean breezes are found everywhere. Kevalli House was originally developed in the 1960s with sustainability in mind. The property is entirely off the grid, with solar and rain catchment systems. Native trees, amazing stonework, and the numerous hues of blue in the sky and waters provide a backdrop or peace and tranquility.
