About the Property
3 bedroom , 2.5 bath sleeps 6 house (1800 sq ft with 800 sq ft balcony)
The house is located 20 minutes or less by car from the beautiful southern beaches, including Hooper's Bay, Jolly Hall, Stocking Island, Forbes Hill and the world famous Tropic of Cancer (voted among the top ten beaches of the world by “Island Living” magazine). The bonefish flats, known for world-class fishing, are a ten minute walk away and the Moriah Harbour Cay National Park is minutes away by car. These waters are fabulous for kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and other water sports.
The private location of this house provides the perfect getaway for those seeking peace and tranquility despite being close to several restaurants and the amenities of the quaint town of George Town. Whether you enjoy relaxing, golfing, bird watching, beach combing, fishing, water sports or night life, the Hummingbird House is your home away from home for enjoying all the cays have to offer. We purchased the home in December 2013 so we have just started renting the house. Everyone has really enjoyed their stay so far. Please contact us if we can provide more information and ask about stays for longer than one month.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

With the 800 square foot wrap-around balcony, one can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views and the azure colors of both the Atlantic and Caribbean waters (including Elizabeth Harbour, Master Harbour, Crab Cay and the southern bonefish flats). Enjoy the spectacular sunrises and sunsets from this deck which provides sun and shade. Wake up to the tranquil sounds of hummingbirds and bananaquits that frequent the tropical gardens surrounding the house.
Enjoy all of the vistas and cool ocean breezes from the open living room and dining areas upstairs. The upper level also has a fully equipped kitchen, pantry, small bedroom (twin bed) and a half bath. There is an additional twin daybed in the living room for an extra guest. Downstairs there are two bedrooms (king and queen beds) with en suite bathrooms and a laundry room.

Year Purchased: 2013
About: We started coming to Exuma six years ago to help veterinarians with free neuter and spay clinics for cats and dogs. We fell in love with this beautiful island and its people immediately. We have been all over the Caribbean and Bahamas and have never seen water quite as beautiful as it is around the Exuma Cays. We are all animal lovers and like the fact that there is an ongoing effort to try to help the animals of this island. We live in a cold climate and this is the perfect warm getaway for us.
Why Exuma, Bahamas:
We love this house because it is so private but yet is close to town, beaches, fishing and several excellent restaurants. The view is absolutely breathtaking, the colors of the waters are stunning and the tropical flowering gardens provide a natural habitat for many types of birds. It is the perfect getaway any time of year. The summers are a little warmer but still very nice. We are off the beaten path but you can walk to the bonefish flats for great fishing of all kinds , kayaking , paddle boarding and snorkeling . We are close to the 6 best beaches on the island ... 10 to 20 mins away by car.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the view from this house. We have been told by locals that it is one of the best views on the Island. In the morning one can watch the sun come up with a cup of coffee and in the evening there are glorious sunsets. Also, because of the location on the ridge, there is always a cool ocean breeze. Everyday is an adventure on Exuma, whether it is discovering a new beach, fishing the flats or talking to folks from all over the world who love the sailing that the Exuma Cays provide.
