About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom (sleeps 8)

Welcome to “Cloud Nine”, a beautiful, spacious beachfront home located on the most gorgeous beach in all of Great Exuma. You’ll experience miles of uninterrupted white “sugar sand” beaches, and stunning views of crystal blue water with offshore cays in the distance.

Cloud Nine is a newly built house designed to highlight views of the beautiful turquoise water from almost every room. It has a generous 2,600 square foot open floor plan, with an additional 600 square foot second floor balcony overlooking the water. Perfect for watching the sunrise with your morning coffee or sipping evening cocktails while watching the sunset. The home has been tastefully yet comfortably decorated with a coastal feel. It is fully tiled, and there are ceiling fans in every room along with central air conditioning.

The living room has oversized sofas, stunning ocean views, and French doors leading out to the balcony. There is a large HD flat screen TV, DVD player and an extensive DVD library. The large dining room table seats 10-12. The modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, full-sized fridge and oven. It has a breakfast bar with 4 barstools for additional seating. It is fully stocked with all of the cookware, place settings and gadgets you’ll need to prepare even the most lavish meal. Feel like grilling up the fish or lobster you caught that day? No problem, there is a gas grill located right outside the kitchen, on the back veranda. There is also a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer.

All four bedrooms have ample storage with oversized closets and dressers. The spacious master bedroom has a king sized bed, en-suite bathroom, spectacular ocean views and tall French doors leading out onto the second floor veranda. Bedroom 2 has ocean views with a queen bed and floor to ceiling French doors leading out onto the veranda. Bedroom 3 has a queen bed and private en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 4 has two twin beds and a side ocean view.

Relax and enjoy the beauty of Great Exuma from the unhurried, casual atmosphere of your own private home. Your family will make the memories of a lifetime here!

Things to experience: If you’d like to explore the nearby islands and cays, there are endless choices: You can rent kayaks, jet skis or Boston Whalers; take a water taxi to famous Stocking Island for lunch and volleyball; hire experienced bonefish or lobster guides, or charter a local boat and captain to give you an unforgettable tour of the famous islands and landmarks in the Exuma Chain. The Sandals resort at Emerald Bay and the Greg Norman golf course are 15 minutes away. Grocery stores, gas stations, car and boat rentals and taxi services are available in the nearby capital of Georgetown. Although Cloud Nine offers every amenity you need to enjoy home cooked meals, don’t forget to try a local restaurant, which can range from the simplest open air beach dining to fine dining at local resorts. Sampling fresh conch salad or fritters is a rite of passage in Exuma!

About Great Exuma: The Bahamas have the clearest waters in the world, with visibility of over 200 feet (61 meters). Luckily for you, Great Exuma is known for having the most beautiful beaches of all the Bahamas! If you enjoy sport fishing for bonefish or blue marlin, then this is the destination for you. You can snorkel or scuba dive while exploring the spectacular reefs and blue holes found around the tiny islands and cays that make up the Exuma chain. Or simply relax on the beach with the clear, calm turquoise water at your feet, soaking up the warm sun.

Remember, you won’t find giant cruise ships or huge crowds in Great Exuma – there is a population of only a few thousand people and no crime. Meeting all the friendly, welcoming locals is part of what make you fall in love with this beautiful jewel of an island.

Why Jane Smith chose Great Exuma

I've travelled extensively around the world, but the instant I visited Great Exuma it was love at first sight. The incredible natural beauty is literally breathtaking, and then I was met with such friendliness and kindness from the locals that I decided it was the perfect place to build a vacation home for my family. We have the most incredible times there, making the memories of a lifetime, and I wish the same for you and your family!

What makes this house unique

Cloud Nine is located right on the most beautiful white sand beach on the island. Perfection!

We just got back from a five day stay at Cloud 9 and cannot wait to plan another trip. The house was perfect, the beach incredible. The house has everything you need - from cooking utensils to DVD's. The beds were comfortable, my kids loved it that we could all spread out and it really felt like a home away from home. The beach is incredibly beautiful and private! We loved having the feeling we were away from it all with our very own beach.The gazebo is perfect if you want to get out of the sun, the kayaks allow you to explore, the sunrises are gorgeous. We only had one snag with the hot water - which turned out to be something easily fixed - and we were very impressed with the prompt response from the caretaker Kirk. Jane was very responsive and helpful in all her communication. We would definitely recommend this place to any of our friends and family, and when we get a chance to return to Exuma, this house will be where we want to stay. The location is very convenient - close enough to Georgetown but still away from it all, and the beach is just as pretty if not prettier than any of the other beaches we saw, including the Tropic of Cancer Beach on Little Exuma. Other recommendations from our trip - Big D's Conch Spot was probably our favorite meal there. So fresh! We used Roberts Island Adventures for a private boat tour - he was very responsive to all our communication and would use him again. We rented a boat from Minn's and went to Stocking Island and the Chat N Chill, and the Prime Meats and Deli was a great place to stock up on meats to grill and fresh sandwiches. Everything closes on Sundays so make sure you have groceries for that day or head on over to the pig roast on Stocking Island. Thanks so much, Jane!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a wonderful vacation. For future guests - turn the handle in the shower upwards and allow the hot water to get to the faucet and then turn the handle down adjusting the water to the desired temperature.

We want to thank you Jane for the use of your beautiful home. Our 2 week stay was fabulous and all your suggestions were very helpful. The view is just breathtaking, the beach is quiet and serene , your gazebo invited moments of stillness and afternoon naps there were fantastic. We look forward to returning to Cloud Nine as we left with many great memories we will cherish forever.

Family trip in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at cloud 9 very much. It was perfect for our family. With the beach so close to the house the kids could go swimming and we could keep an eye on them and not have to worry about them. The water is so beautiful... Just couldn't get enough of the colors! We went on an island tour and saw the swimming pigs, iguanas, sharks, starfish etc... Enjoyed it all! Hopefully some day we can go back to cloud 9! Our grandkids said it was the best vacation they had ever taken!

Amazing beachfront home, ClounNine, on Sandy lane, Exuma Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

We were astonished once we pulled in the driveway. The house was perfect in all aspects, location was right on the beach, the view on the deck was amazing, beautiful decorations all through the house (very thoughtful), and the house has all the amenities that you need(again very thoughtful). We loved the house so much that we wouldn't go anywhere else. The location was perfect, you are at the midway between Tropic of cancer beach and Rolleville beach. All bedrooms were cleaned and well kept, feels like a brand new home and extremely comfortable. We will definitely go back to CloudNine.
