Best Vacation ever
Can’t say enough great things about Temptress and Staneil Cay. We loved every minute of our two week stay. The house was 5 star. Milly the housekeeper and Joel the captain of Temptaion were wealth of knowledge. We are coming back next year!!!
Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to having you back.
Spectacular views & luxuriously appointed home!
From start to finish our stay at Temptress was a dream vacation. The property is immaculately maintained by the caretaker, Millie, who is an absolute sweetheart and wants to make your stay as perfect as possible. She had recommendations that really helped with our trip planning. Joel, the Captain of Temptress yacht was always available to give pointers on fishing & excursions. They both really make you feel at home & welcome. Temptress was a perfect home base... centrally located, yet private, with a beautiful natural aquarium out front that kept my kids busy for hours, snorkeling. This was the perfect extended family getaway to celebrate the Holidays. We will definitely stay at Temptress when we return to Staniel Cay. Don’t hesitate to book this property, it’s a must see!
Staniel Cay Paridise
My family and I had the pleasure of being Tempted by the Temptress! This was an absolutely stunning home on a beautiful Island in the middle of some of the most amazing waters God created!! I cannot say enough about the Temptress. The home is absolutely beautiful with view that you only dream about. A reef off of your back porch and so much to see and do with in a 45 min boat trip. Give me the beauties of Staniel Cay any day. It is an outdoor paradise with the most comforting home! "The Temptress", I can't wait to schedule my next trip.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We enjoyed having you and look forward to seeing you again soon.
I rented the lower portion of the house for my daughter and I. The house is very clean and has every amenity you can imagine. My daughter had so much fun snorkeling over the coral reef right in front of the house. Milly and Joel are extremely helpful. I rented my boat from Coral at "Wheels & Waves" and I hired Keiran and Sandy as my boat captains to take my daughter and I on all of our boating adventures. I definitely suggest renting a golf cart as this enabled us to travel around the island very easily.
Staniel Cay is the jewel in the center of the long necklace of Exuma islands stretching for 100 miles southeast of Nassau. Less than a mile square and home to about 100 people, Staniel Cay is the hub for the Pipe Creek area, a group of islands stretching for eight miles north to Compass Cay. The Staniel Cay Yacht Club has paddleboards and kayak equipment for rent.
With its 3,000 foot airstrip, little stores (Isles General, Pink Pearl, Blue Store), village, clinic, church, marinas, restaurants and vacation rentals, visitors to Staniel Cay find the best the Bahamas has to offer. Thunderball Grotto, Staniel Cay, Exumas Bahamas
Of particular interest is 'Thunderball Grotto,' a hollowed-out island where James bond movies 'Never Say Never Again' and 'Thunderball' as well as 'Splash' were filmed.
Snorkelers can swim into the natural fish bowl at slack tide and become one with the many varieties of fish. Light streams through the top where rain has eroded natural skylights.
There are several entrances and passageways to explore. Look but don't touch... Thunderball islands are protected by the Bahamas National Trust. For the more adventurous, the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a 176-square-mile reserve, is a short boat ride away.
Anglers are treated to some of the best bonefishing flats in the world, (there's an annual Bone Fishing Festival each summer), while Exuma Sound offers blue water fishing only minutes offshore. Local guides are always available.
Staniel Cay, Exumas Bahamas Staniel Cay is a favorite for cruising yachtsmen. While some choose to tie up at the marina facilities or moorings, the majority tend to anchor in the many protected bays.
The east side of the island overlooking Exuma Sound boasts a long dune-type beach with a reef just offshore.
The west side of the island faces the shallow banks where several deserted islands await beachcombers. Sunsets are incredible...watch for the 'green flash' as the sun sinks into the sea.
