About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Stilt's House

Stilt's House is cozy two bedrooms, two bathroom beach style home that will make your Bahamas vacation fabulous! Set among a mass of palm trees and lush vegetation this property is private and stunning with 'peek- a -boo' ocean views, yet only an 8-minute drive from Georgetown International airport. A paved road continues to downtown Georgetown which has many delicious restaurants and quaint shops. But don’t expect the hustle and bustle of a big city; Exuma is a quiet island with friendly locals and stunning beaches.

The house has a wraparound balcony that consists of an outdoor dining table, BBQ, and lounge chairs. The shaded veranda is perfect for relaxing and enjoying ocean views. The two bedrooms can sleep four comfortably. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other a double bed. The bedroom with the double bed also features a small brand new (2017) en-suite bathroom with a fully tiled shower. Each bedroom boasts a view of palm trees and has an air conditioning unit and a ceiling fan. Bedrooms are spacious and equipped with new mattresses and linens.

The 900 square-foot house is perfect for a family or couples looking to relax and enjoy the Island of Exuma.

Great Exuma belongs to the chain of Exuma Cays and is the largest in the chain. Georgetown International airport has many direct flights from Toronto, Miami, Atlanta, and Nassau. (Air Canada, Delta, American. Bahamas Air, Sky Bahamas). Exuma has pristine waters, white sandy secluded beaches, and an array of activities both on and off the water. For example golf, snorkelling, fishing, scuba diving, volleyball, tennis, boating, kayaking, spas, etc. There are many boat rental spots or captains for hire that would love to help you explore the clear, calm waters around Exuma. Water taxis are also available to transport you from downtown Georgetown to Stocking Island where you can get fresh conch salad at ‘Chat and Chill’ or enjoy impressive views dining at St. Francis restaurant. Beach volleyball and weekly pig roasts are also a favourite on Stocking Island.

The Stilt's House is a unique property offering space and seclusion but yet so close to many services, attractions, and beautiful secluded beaches!

About Jane Stoller

I always loved the Bahamas, and in 2013 my parents and I took a family vacation to Exuma and fell in love with the Island. The secluded beaches, lovely people, and fantastic atmosphere make for an unforgettable vacation. I purchased Stilt's House and my parents and I spent the months of November and December 2014 renovating - adding two bedrooms and a bathroom with a local contractor.

Jane Stoller purchased this house in 2014

Why Jane Stoller chose Exuma

The Stilt's House was the best choice for myself and my family. It has an ideal location - minutes from Georgetown airport, minutes from downtown, across from the most beautiful secluded beach and a slight ocean view from the dining room. Additionally, the property is home to many palm trees and lush vegetation that makes the house feel tropical, private and provides the ability to grow flowers and eat fresh coconut daily.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of this house is the size of the property. You don't feel as if you have any neighbours and although close to the main road the noise is minimal. The ease of landing at Georgetown International airport and being home within a few minutes is the perfect way to start a vacation.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation in Exuma! The house is perfectly located and only minutes away from downtown Georgetown and the airport. Food and drinks at Chat 'N' Chill Beach Bar & Grill on stocking island as well as a boat tour with captain Antonio are a must for anyone visiting Exuma.

The house was very clean, well equipped, and the large backyard was beautiful for enjoying the outdoors. Jane was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed.

A fantastic place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is BEAUTIFUL! My husband and I stayed here in October 2017 for our vacation to avoid the single rooms that most hotels offer, we wanted to be able to cook our own meals and have space to spend time with friends and family. We were not disappointed with this centrally located property. The home is a beautiful stilted structure with an inviting wooden ramp which leads up to a gorgeous and spacious deck that wraps around much of the building and plenty of patio furniture to take advantage of it. With the house being up on stilts you are able to have a view of the stunning turquoise waters above the landscape of neighbouring properties. There is a beach access trail only a few steps away that leads to the most incredibly peaceful, empty beach.

The inside of the house is quite impressive as well, a very clean, well taken care of space complete with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large open concept kitchen, dining and living room. With an air conditioner in every room it was easy to escape the Bahamian heat when desired. The land that the house sits on is beautiful, with coconut trees spread throughout the yard and foliage around the perimeter. The property was incredibly well maintained considering they experienced unfortunate weather soon before we arrived. A very friendly and kind housekeeper came by a couple days into our trip to ensure that we didn’t need anything and directed us to her business card should we need something during our stay.

The owner of the house was a dream to deal with. She was always quick to respond to any messages we sent both before and during our stay. We received a welcome message soon after our arrival to confirm that everything was to our liking and that we weren’t lacking anything.

I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful place if you are looking for somewhere that makes you feel comfortable, happy and at home.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mom, sister and I stayed in The Stilts House for 8 days. We loved the place and the space it offered the 4 of us. Jane responded to any questions and/or concerns immediately. I never had to wait for a response! The house was in a great location as well. Never too far from anywhere we wanted to go explore. Thank you for such a smooth, worry-free vacation Jane!

Great stilts House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the stilts house was a great experience. The house was well organized ( swiss organisation) and clean. Unfortunatly for us, the entire stay was very windy so we weren't able to use the beach accross the road. We highly recommend this house, the prices are reasonnable in comparaison to everything else on the island.

Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed the house! It can get windy on the Island creating large waves on certain beaches. Sometimes guests have wind for the entire week while others have all calm days. There are a few beaches that offer more protection from the wind, the closest being Hoopers Bay from the house. Hope you come to Exuma again.
