About Owner/Manager

We live in Ontario and over the past few years we have fallen in love with the Exumas. We absolutely love meeting new people from around the world, and helping them have a trip of a lifetime. Exuma is paradise, Exuma is a dream come true to experience. Nothing excites us more than talking to guests about the island and our home.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Owner/Manager chose Farmer's Hill

Great Exuma was always a 'bucket list' destination for us. We have always loved to explore different areas of the Caribbean. We even tried to plan our beach wedding on Exuma years ago, but realized that there were limited flights and no direct flights from Canada to the Bahamas out island. Air Canada began offering direct flights from Toronto to Great Exuma and we booked a flight. Instantly, we fell in love with the quiet island, an absolute untouched piece of paradise. From its tiny airport, friendly people and unspoiled beaches, we knew then that we wanted to have a home there one day. We continued to travel to the island whenever possible and found ourselves looking at homes for sale. In 2014 our dream became a reality. We put our heart and sole into renovating the beach house along with all new furnishings. We now enjoy sharing our piece of paradise with guests from all around the world.

What makes this house unique

Experience a 'bucket list' vacation in the bahamas on the island of Great Exuma. Enjoy ocean views, steps to the beach, beautiful gardens, spacious kitchen and a secluded beautiful private beach. The entire house offers all the amenities of home. Listen to the waves on the back deck. Canuck Palms is only 5 minutes from the Georgetown Airport, and just down the road from Emerald Bay and the Greg Norman Championship Golf Course.

My husband and I have been to Exuma before and rented a different house, but decided to try Canuck palms being it was a little smaller and came with more, and it was perfect! The directions to the house were so detailed and spot on, and being minutes from the airport we found the house less then an hour after we got off the plane. Loved having the key lock outside, so when you left you knew you would be able to get back in! The house itself was SUPER clean and wasn't lacking in anything necessary to enjoy your stay! The outdoor shower was used well to get the day's sand and stickiness off of us! Great feature to the house! The only complaint I could think of was the sofa in the living room tried to swallow my husband the first day, but made for good teasing the rest of the trip!

I won't go on about what to do on the island, because all the research in the world will tell you about how perfect this gem of an island is, but Jim and I will definitely be back, and will have no hesitation to stay here again!

PS- when you do stay here- take a night, load yourself with bugspray, turn off all the lights and sit outside on the deck and look up. The amount of stars and satellites above you are astonishingly beautiful and plentiful!!! We stayed out there for at least an hour several times!!!

Lovely spacious well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this spacious well equipped home with 2 very large bedrooms and great comfy beds. Although it is not on the beach it is only a short 3 minute walk to it. It is close to a convenience and liquor store while there is plenty of cooking equipment and a BBQ to eat in comfortably. You need a car as you are 20-30 minutes from Georgetown and about 10-15 minutes from the airport. Very nice indeed .....

Forget the Hotels/Resorts This is a MUST stay experience !! This home is Clean, Spacious and Gorgeous. We stayed with 2 other adults and had more than enough room to hang out, cook together and just relax. The deck is a great hang out to get some sun, BBQ, grab a drink and enjoy the Peaceful beautifully landscaped yard and hear the waves crashing on the beach. The outdoor shower was one of our favorite features, this will be a must have in our next home. Brett & Heather have been the best hosts, they were always available recommending beaches, local restaurants, rental & airport info. We stayed 5 nights and had the best time !! Their home is close to everything, I feel we got the full Island experience and saw some incredible sights. We look forward to staying with them again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.....APRIL 2018

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We (reluctantly) just left Exuma and our family is already scheming our next visit! Brett and Heather's home was absolutely perfect for our needs and they attended to all the details that made our stay that much sweeter! Towels, water gear, umbrella's, water toys all stocked to enjoy. A spotless and comfortable home and, ooohhh, the beaches! They were so responsive and helpful through the whole process and Cynthia, the property manager, was an absolute sweetheart! We just loved Exuma and we loved Canuck Palms. We will definitely and we are already looking forward to this being our home base again. Thank you all!

We just returned from a 5 day stay and everything was terrific! This place is so homey and Brett and Heather were great hosts. From the time I booked, until the day we left, they were always helpful. When we had questions about the house or where to eat, they were very prompt in answering emails or messages. I highly recommend staying at Canuck Palms!
