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 Jimmy Hill

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!

Relaxing in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a amazing time on Cloud Nine! The beach was beautiful and felt like it was all ours! My son and his girl friend kayaked out to the private island where he proposed to her. This place will forever be a memory for all of us! The house was beautiful and comfortable. We had the best time just being in paradise. A little windy our last few days, maybe next time we'll go another time of year but, we really hope to come back to Cloud Nine. Thank You Jane for being willing to answer all our questions!

Just a side note I read in the Nassau paper at the airport that better wireless service may be coming to the island. That would be very beneficial as we had a couple college students that needed it while we were there.

Amazing beach and property... if you are looking to relax in the most beautiful place, this is it.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 1-7 at Cloud Nine, the weather was amazing. The house was wonderful with all the amenities that we could possibly need. We had seven of us at the house and there was more than enough room for everyone. The beach was amazing, we spent almost every waking moment down at the cabana and in the water. Very private beach area and the sand was white and soft. We are already planning our next trip to Cloud Nine. Thank you Jane for sharing your home with us for an amazing week of fun in the sun. The only regret is we did not stay longer!!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Cloud Nine lived up to every expectation! Communication with Jane throughout the process was prompt and informative. Kirk, the caretaker, was a ray of sunshine and made sure we had everything needed to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The back yard at Cloud Nine was picturesque, with miles of turquoise water, white powdery sand and deep blue skies. HIGHLY recommended!

Gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated on a beautiful stretch of almost deserted beach. The views from the deck and the gazebo are fantastic and we really enjoyed the sea kayaks and beach toys. The house has been nicely renovated and beds were comfy. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed the stay. (Actually the house has never been renovated... I believe you meant decorated!)
