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
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.
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 wife and I were here in February 2017. We didn't want to pay for Sandals but wanted to be on Exuma. This villa was perfect. Two bedrooms were large, central AC in the house worked well. The wifi was good. We only used the TV for a little bit of superbowl watching.
The kitchen is well equipped. A decent grocery store is in Georgetown "Exuma Market". We made egg sandwiches for breakfast every day and had some snacks and lunch meat for beach days. There is a liquor store just north about 200 yards on the main road.
They had a great selection of quality snorkel gear and had four beach chairs as well. The outdoor shower was a nice touch. The back deck is very private as well. Great place to lounge and listen to the waves.
You can walk to a beach in about three minutes out the back door that was deserted.
For navigation, have Google maps on your phone. The GPS will move your dot around the island on the map for you even without cell data. Search for destination on Wifi.
Highly recommend going to "Cocoplum beach" at low tide. From the house, turn right onto the main road and drive about 15 minutes. You'll see a place on the left with three roads splitting and keep going straight another minute or so. There's a large blue rectangular trash container and turn right here. Half mile up is the beach on a rocky road. Incredible sand bars, sand dollars, and completed deserted.
Also a trip to Little Exuma is worth it for part of a day. Tropic of Cancer beach and the two just north of it along the coast are amazing. Restaurants are slim on the island. Catch a Fire is decent and a good place for a sunset. There is a community of shacks just north of Georgetown that will cook freshly caught fish and is worth checking out. "February point" had a nice restaurant as well. We went there at 11:45a in the car and got to lounge by their pool while waiting for the restaurant to open at noon. Also free Wifi.
We did a boat tour with "Four C's Adventures" that was $180 for full day. It included the thunderball grotto, swim with pigs, iguanas, sight seeing private islands and a nice sandbar stop. The marina is off one of the splits in the road to the north.
If you like to truly get away and relax in an incredible private setting, this villa on Exuma is for you. If you need to be waited on and lounge by the pool for a week and miss all the incredible sites, then go to Sandals.
You CAN bring drones to the island but you have to apply for a permit online before.
My husband and two young boys (ages 5 and 8) had the most wonderful vacation here and can't say enough good things about our rental on the beach. This place has everything you need. It's all there and is such a great, central location. We would be off on our daily adventures and it was so nice to come back and have wifi, barbeque on deck, plenty of fans and AC, comfortable beds, and washer and dryer. The decor is lovely and Heather and Brett are not the type to leave you hanging, answering any question/concerns within an hour. They have all the bases covered! The only negative is when we had to go home.
My friend Danielle and I stayed at this beautiful home for five nights. It was absolutely perfect, clean and had all the amenities a five star resort would offer. The King beds were super comfortable, Linens and robes were provided and we were a two min walk to the beach! Heather was super helpful and answered any questions we had, gave suggestions on places to eat and things to do. I highly recommend this property and I will be sure to recommend it to all my friends.
