The Tree House is air-conditioned, has one bedroom with queen-bed and sea view, fully-equipped kitchen, bath with walk-in shower, and laundry facilities. The living area leads to a lovely balcony, with a fabulous view of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond. The Tree House is the upper floor of a two story building (the lower floor is our own personal storage space) and thus has a stunning view of Hooper's Bay. Perfect for one couple, this cottage is available for rental separately, or in conjunction with Mayaguana House for larger groups. (See Mayaguana House listing on VBRO.)

About Pam

I have been coming to Exuma since 1969. It is still the wonderful island that I discovererd that year. Sure, a few things have changed. Instead of drinking Tang like the astronauts, we can now buy orange juice. Instead of driving to George Town to make a phone call, we now have land line phones, cell phones and internet! But the charm of the island remains the same. The water is still turquoise, the beaches still pristine, the Exumians still friendly and kind hearted. Am I biased? Probably! Do I love it? Yes! And you will, too, after spending time here.

Why Pam chose Great Exuma

Whereas many of the homes are located right on the Queen's Highway, which runs along the island on the east side, our home is located in Old Hooper's Bay. Old Hooper's Bay is conveniently situated just 5 miles from George Town, BUT it is a 30 acre compound reached by our private road from the highway. You must drive in, up and over a significant verdant hill to reach the main section of the compound. This 1/4 mile distance provides a luxurious insulator from the traffic on the Queen's Highway. Plus our views of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond are spectacular! The private road deters wanderers. The Old Hooper's Beach Park is shared by the 9 homes in the compound. No worries about over-crowding! We are very blessed!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Pam is a great host who made everything seamless, great communication. The treehouse has beautiful views of hoopers bay and we loved sitting on the deck every morning having coffee. As someone who has visited exuma before, the location is perfect. Very close to Georgetown (gas, straw market, minns, grocery, liquor stores etc). It's basically in the middle of the island so you couldn't ask for a better spot. Hoopers bay is insanely gorgeous and private. Amazing!

Perfect location for a relaxed break

  • 5 of 5

Nice and clean independent house with everything you might need to feel yourself at home. The host Pama and Bill are very useful and will help with your needs. private beach access and centrally located in the island so you can go conveniently wherever you want from there. Close to George town but out of the main street. nice external balcony. Really nice place to enjoy the island from...highly recommended

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I just returned from a week at the Tree House and everything was glorious. The decorations were perfect! We had breakfast on the porch every morning and enjoyed the beautiful views. And on the days we took off from exploring the many beautiful beaches of Exuma we snorkeled and swam at the stunning and mostly empty Old Hoopers Bay beach. The location was great for getting around the island. No issues to report other than the post-vacation blues we are experiencing this week. We can't wait to return. Thank you, Pam!

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5

What a little gem on Great Exuma! Quiet and secluded, yet so close to Georgetown, grocery and restaurants. The little beach park is simply beautiful. Uniquely landscaped, this is a perfect place to spend a few hours on your own private beach - with a very comfortable hammock! Pam and Bill are wonderful hosts and the neighbors in Old Hoopers Bay are warm and welcoming. What hospitality! We spent 17 nights at the Tree House and enthusiastically recommend it to those who are looking for a place to experience the best of Great Exuma. Thanks again Pam and Bill!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the tree house so much. We loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings, very relaxing. Everything was very clean! Our favorite restaurant on the island was Santana's. We rented a boat for a day and toured around the bay ourselves. Prime island meats is so close to the house and has delicious sandwiches too! Everything was wonderful. The house is very close to town. We found it very convenient!

quiet and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

The perfect spot for two people who need and love peace and quiet! The house is located on beautiful Hoopers Bay - what can we say what hasn't been mentioned already - private beach with a small house reef, you can hang around in the water all day long, all kind of fish, sea turtles and much more , the house was clean and well equiped, just what we expected and had hoped for. Being able to use the kayak a few times was great! We were also very glad we had a rental car, so we could explore all the amazing beaches on Exuma, and everything elses this island has to offer!

Pam was a great help, giving tips on what to do and where to go, and answering all our questions way before arriving on Exuma!

There was only one thing who gave us a tough time in those two weeks in august, the AC in the small bedroom was out of order/broken/ not fixed/ whatever. The fan on the ceiling of the small bedroom could not handle the standing heat at all, no matter what you did, entering the bedroom was like hitting a wall and not to mentione trying to sleep. This had me sleeping on the floor in the living/dining room area a couple times....

Besides that- we would always recommend Exuma! Especially Hoopers Bay- the best place to stay!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that the air conditioner in the bedroom malfunctioned. I so wish you had contacted me, as I would have been happy to have it repaired during your visit. I have just spoken with my local caretaker and the issue is being addressed today. We work hard to keep everything in tip top shape. Please accept our apologies!
