About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Stilts Cottage with Ocean View

Our Stilts 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 well-paved road continues with only minutes 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 no stop lights but the friendliest locals and stunning beaches.

The inside of the house has been newly renovated and includes new kitchen appliances and a spacious living room. The home 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 brand 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, Bahamas Air, SkyBahamas). Exuma has pristine waters, white sandy secluded beaches, and an array of activities both on and off the water. For example golf, snorkeling, 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 favorite on Stocking Island.

The Stilts House is indeed 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 Stilts 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 Stilts 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 an 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 fresh fruits.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit to this house is indeed the size of the property. You don't feel as if you have any neighbors and although close to the main road then 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.

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.

Wonderful stay at Stilt's House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Stilt's house for seven nights one week ago and it was perfect for us. It was very clean and organized and we had everything we needed. It was in a great location with Tar Bay Beach across the street and so many other wonderful beaches within very short easy drives----Hoopers Bay, Jolly Hall, Coco Plum, Three Sisters etc. We really explored the island and the location of this property made that very easy to do. The house is just as pictured and even bigger than we expected. There's a wonderful porch that we had our morning coffee on every day and you have a peekaboo view of the ocean from it. Jane, the owner, communicated with us so well and everything was perfect when we arrived. I highly recommend this property ---it was even better than we expected. We truly hope to be back!

Perfect house to enjoy Exuma paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! Jane is an excellent host with a lot of good recommendations on things to do, places to eat, responded almost immediately to any communications. The house was very clean, well put together, had all the essentials and much more. Plenty of space, very comfortable, perfect location (8 min from the airport, 10 min to Georgetown, close to beautiful beaches) and unforgettable views!!! There was wi-fi, cable TV with lots of channels to choose from, perfect AC and ceiling fans in each room, beach towels, beach umbrella and cooler, gas bbq on the outside wrap around patio. Neighbourhood is very safe and quiet. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon to this perfect place! Highly recommend this property. Thank you, Jane, can't wait to stay at your house again.

Wonderful home for your vacation! Don't wait to book it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 30 days and it was absolutely the best vacation we could have taken.

There is a beach that is across the road from the house is the by far, the best beach on the island. You can walk 2 miles down it and not see another person. It feels like it's your own personal beach. The sand is like silk, the water so warm and the house is quaint and cozy. This house was great for a relaxing vacation to Exuma, but a car is a MUST- you will be located just out of town and you will need to get groceries. The owner was helpful before, during, and after our stay as she responds to any communications with such speed and helpfulness. The groundskeepers are locals that extended their help any time we asked for it. They were great. Will we visit again? There is no question about it!

If you are looking for a lively night life, this isn't for you- there are 2 popular bars that you can drive to for a nice time, but party time it is not-- for that, head to Nassau. This island is great for a family vacation to enjoy the incredible natural beauty of the tropics; to relax, go slow, explore clear waters, sift through soft sand and boat around paradise. Jane, thank you so much for letting us rent your home!

A Home With Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using Home away from home and all I can say is that all was easy breezy. Our host Jane is amazing and was more than helpful. She answered all of our questions very quickly and gave us advice and tips about Exuma which was extremely helpful. The maintenance crew of the house Virginia and Lawrence went above and beyond whenever we had questions or needed help with something regarding the house We are a group of four people and we pretty much did everything within a week! We were never bored! The beach is literally a two minute walk across the street and the water is so clear with powdery white sand. The house is equip with a full kitchen and a Bbq outside the wrap around patio. The house is cleaned and well maintained with a modern cottage look to it. The locals are super friendly and helpful! We are looking to book our next flight to Exuma already! We had a fantastic time and would go back in heart beat! Thanks Jane! Can't wait to stay at your place again!
