Large inflatable island with headrest and cup holders, tied off on mornings makes for never ending fun and relaxation. No need to worry about the kids because these are the bone fish flats, which means besides having incredible turquoise waters with white sand bottom, it also has no drop offs, no undertow, just enough waves to enjoy the sounds and the water is only 3-4 feet deep at it's deepest as far as you can walk or swim.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tad, we are at the airport getting ready to fly back to the real world. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed your gem of a property Aqua Vista.



In all the years we have traveled and places we have stayed, I don't recall using the outdoor space of a property as much as we used this one. The pictures you have posted just doesn't do it justice.



We did travel to a couple beaches we found last year and found a new one this year which I consider the best on the island you can get to by car. Coco Plum Beach, not sure if you have been there, but is a must see next time you are here if you haven't.



Alex was a real pleasure to work with. When we arrived he had our car waiting for us when we walked out, so we were able to load up and go straight to the house.



All in all we had a great trip and look forward to returning to Aqua Vista again in the near future. Thanks to you and Alex for making this trip seamless and extremely pleasurable.



Best Regards,

Ben

You really can't ask for a better place to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh WOW! Where to start? You know how you see some rentals have pictures posted and when you get there it's not exactly what you expected? NOT THIS PLACE! WOW! It ALL looks just like the pictures! It's amazingly beautiful. We never got bored of just sitting out on the deck or the dock and just looking around in awe of the beauty. All of our friends and family thought we went to Bora Bora or Bali from the pictures we showed them. It really is a little slice of heaven! The house is fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Everything works as it should and it was very comfortable.

Customer service from the owner, Tad and the caretaker, Alex, are also top notch. They anticipated any and all needs and made the stay very smooth and comfortable. Alex knows the island top to bottom. He'll tell you everything you need to know from the best places to shop and eat, to the best beaches and snorkel spots. He knows everyone and everyone knows him!

Overall we love the house and the island and we can't wait to return very soon!

Sublime experience...Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this location for our 2nd week on Exuma!!!

Very private in that no one was staying at the residence next door....made for unforgettable serenity and just an incredibly sublime experience.

We rented a boat for the week but after a couple of days moved it to a dock on opposite side of the .island. As Tad had mentioned this location location is idea for small boat with minimal draft.

Pointers: use the paddle boards and kayaks from the start.....we would get up and enjoy a morning of kayaking and paddle boarding...great fun with the kids.!! The dock was so private that I would work out each morning and then take a quick dip in the water to cool off...the whole time playing music from portable speaker ....no one around to bother....just complete freedom :). Kayak to some of the nearby refugee shipwrecks.....again just a raw experience that the kids were fascinated by.

This is a place to slow down and enjoy the privacy and get away from it all....it was truly one of the rare times that I felt that detached and unencumbered by the world.

I also recommend stepping out at nigt to look at the stars!!! WOW!

When its a moonlit night it is just as amazing...so beautiful and just so peaceful.

This property is close enough to Georgetown to do all those activities as well...we usually would spend the am at the house then head out for other areas coming back for sunset.

Very comfortable beds. And the house with the dock and kayaks/paddle boards makes for a very comfortable experience. Great job Tad! It was nice to stay in a place that provided kayaks and paddle boards..this really accentuated our experience.

I would highly recommend this property and would urge those that rent it to really take time to appreciate the uniqueness and savor it! ☺☺

Absolutely an amazing trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I had been looking forward to this trip for months and couldn't wait for it to start. We booked Aqua Vista for 10 days and wished now we would of done a full two weeks we had so much fun. Tad (the owner) was very quick with communicating with us when our flight had been cancelled to Exuma and we ended up arriving a day late (that's a whole other story) but Tony (the caretaker) was there to greet us. We rented a Jeep from Airport Rentals- it was newer and clean with 21k. Highly recommend getting a jeep as the roads there are pretty rough, but having the extra lift and suspension made getting around a breeze. Plus its just a fun ride. Tony showed us all the places to shop. We stocked up with groceries at Exuma Market and hit the liquor store, then off to Aqua Vista.

Upon arriving, the property is even more stunning than any of the photos shown in the listing. The inside of the house is spacious, clean & very well maintained. There is a view from anywhere you stood. Kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals. There is a water cooler with several extra 5 gallon bottles for drinking and cooking. A cute little ice maker that kicks out a good amount of ice!! There is a tv and dvd player but there is no service. The wifi in the house did the trick! We had very little problems using our devices, we even hooked up the laptop to the tv and watched netflix at night when we were winding down. There also is a bose bluetooth speaker that we played music through most of the time we were in the house.

We spent most of our time out on the dock or in the water! When we were there, there was not a person in sight- so it was like having your own private ocean oasis. Lots of seating around the dock for lounging and enjoying the scenery. The floating raft was so comfortable I think we could of spent the entire trip on that alone. We had great cell coverage at the property, so we had a waterproof speaker out with us and streamed Sirius Xm. Enjoyed snorkeling the little reefs right by the house. If the water is calm take advantage of it and use the kayaks and paddleboard. Be sure to catch the sunrises and sunsets, you get both here.

I could go on and on about this place- but they only allow so many words and its not enough describe our stay here, let alone all the adventures around the island. If you are looking to relax and recharge yourself, this is the place to do it!

Breathtakingly Beautiful! I never knew water could be that turquoise! Magical

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week long stay at Aqua Vista, and all I can say is, “WOW”! I’m pretty sure OMG fell out of my mouth at least 500 times, in 7 days. If you are looking for the ultimate off the grid, nothing to do but relax kind of vacation, then Aqua Vista is the perfect place. Here are things to know BEFORE you get there....

Grocery Stores are very limited on what they carry, and everything is 3x the price of what you pay in the US. Pack dry goods in your suitcase if you can, also bring a cooler of meat. Google customs to know how much you can bring. But we did love Island Prime Meats grocery store. Very clean and on the way to Aqua Vista.

You WILL need a rental car. Thompson’s Car rental is right outside of the one room airport. Make a reservation.

Coco Plum Beach is BREATH TAKING! Sandbar at low tide and wooden swings in the water.

Restaurants we loved were Shoreline Restaurant (few miles past Coco Plum Beach), Shirley’s Fish Fry (10 Minutes from Aqua Vista). Santana’s and Tropical Breeze are also wonderful!

Tony met us at the airport and walked us over to Thompson’s to get our car, then he led us out to Aqua Vista. It is definitely of the beaten path so pay attention to where you are going. The roads are full of potholes so be careful, it was def part of the adventure. Just go slow and you’ll be fine. Speaking of speed, the speedometer in the car we had was in kilometers NOT mph, which explained why people were passing us and honking. Lol Oh, and you also drive on the left hand side of the road.

The bugs can get really bad when the wind dies down. We brought a bug spray with us called Repel Lemon and Eucalyptus light oil spray. It is AMAZING and deet free. We bought it at Walmart. Highly recommend.

I will warn you though, at exactly 5 pm every night the no seeums come out in swarms. They will eat you alive if you don’t have bug spray. They are tiny tiny bugs that bite and bite and bite.

All in all, we had the time of our lives and can’t wait to go back!

Tad was very patient with us and answered all of our many questions. Those hurricanes were blowing through a couple of months before our trip and we were kind of freaking out.

Oh, bring water shoes with a sole. The rocks going into the water at the house are a little sharp.

What are you waiting for? MAKE THAT RESERVATION! Lol

Absolutely loved the place, kids had a blast! Picturesque view, tranquil ocean breeze, and calming sound of the waves, all we could ask for and more... Tony, the property manager, was very helpful. Will be back next year! Thank you, Tony and Tad.
