About Mike and Margaret Barton
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.
Mike and Margaret Barton purchased this House in 2013
Why Mike and Margaret Barton chose George Town
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.
What makes this House unique
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.We love the location...private , close to town and beaches. 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.

We had such an awesome stay at this tranquil home. The house is surrounded by lush vegetation and the views are to die for. The home is very clean & well maintained. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The outdoor shower is a must! The property is very private & peaceful. Margaret is an absolute pleasure to deal with. The location of the house is fantastic for getting around, it’s just 5 mins into town. The locals are very friendly and we felt safe walking around. Make sure to visit Stocking Island, look for Wally at Elvis Water Taxi in town. Definitely have dinner at Blu On The Water, awesome view. You must also visit Haulover Bar & Grill in Rolle Town, tell Ishmael & Kenya that Chris & Dawna sent you :) they have beautiful property on the water, try to go when it’s low tide, you can walk out to an island across the way on the sandbar.
You will not be disappointed staying at The Hummingbird House. Thank you Margaret & Mike for sharing your home :)

Wonderful and charming house
Margaret was so helpful and prompt in responding to all my emails with questions. When I got lost to find the house, she called me right away and stayed on the phone to guide me to the house. The house is absolutely charming with killer view of the turquoise sandbar waters! We would come back for sure.
And thank you Margaret for sharing your wonderful and beautiful home with our family! May God continue to Bless you and your Family!

Fantastic family vacation at Hummingbird House!
We had a wonderful stay at the Hummingbird House! The house is spacious, nicely decorated, with an amazing deck to enjoy the views. The location is perfect, close to Georgetown, shopping and exploring.. Margaret was great, very helpful, and checked on us during our stay. We made some awesome memories in Exuma and the HH, and can’t wait to visit again!!
The Hummingbird House is a tastefully appointed 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house located on a ridge less than 4 miles south of Georgetown. 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. We are off the beaton path but close to town and beaches.
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.
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 5 minute walk away and the Moriah Harbour Cay National Park is 5 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.
