Our Stilts House is cozy two bedroom 2 bathroom beach style home that will be sure to make your Bahamas vacation fabulous! Set amongst 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 house has a wraparound balcony that includes an outdoor dining table, BBQ, and lounge chairs. The shaded balcony is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the Ocean views. The two bedrooms can sleep 4 comfortably and additionally there is a pull out couch in the living room. One bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and the other with double bed. The bedroom with the double bed also features a small brand new en-suite bathroom with fully tiled shower. Each bedroom boasts 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, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta and Nassau. (Air Canada, American Eagle, Delta, Bahamas Air, SkyBahamas). Exuma has pristine waters, white sandy secluded beaches, and array of activities both on and off the water. For example golf, snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, volleyball, tennis, boating, kayaking, spas, etc. There is many boat rental 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 from dining at St. Francis restaurant. Beach volleyball and weekly pig roasts are also a favorite on Stocking Island.
The Stilts House is truly a unique property offering space and seclusion but yet so close to many services, attractions, and beautiful secluded beaches!
I always loved the Bahamas and in 2013 my parents and I had a family vacation in Exuma and we fell in love with the Island. The secluded beaches, wonderful people, and amazing atmosphere make for an unforgettable vacation. I purchased the 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
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 and private.
The unique benefit to this house is truly the size of the property. You don't feel as if you have any neighbors and although close to the main road then 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.
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!
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!
This house would be perfect for two couples. We enjoyed a long weekend in Exuma during the Bahamian music fest and could not have found a better spot to bunk. The house has two comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms (no tub) and is entirely on stilts so the wraparound deck was the perfect spot to relax and get a glimpse of the sea. The beach is a short walk and a very nice beach and the house is only a few minutes from Georgetown and a few minutes from the airport. The kitchen was perfect and we enjoyed breakfast at home. Swimming with the pigs is, of course, not to be missed. We rented a car, which is a must and don't forget to drive on the right! Catch A Fire restaurant was a few minutes drive and worth the bumpy driveway. And of course the Peace and Plenty is a great spot for a drink and a bite. We took the ferry to the Chat and Chill - not to be missed for a relaxing day on the beach, in the water, and at the bar, with great drinks and great food. All in all we will definitely return to Exuma and this house will be our first choice. The owners were easy to work with and we highly recommend this spot.
This was my first trip to the island with my fiance and we wanted a place not only with the essentials but also within walking distance to a beach. The home was spotless when we arrived and even better than in the photos. Overall I was looking for a place with a fresh/updated look and was pleased with the furniture choices and both of the bathrooms. The two bathrooms were a plus because we do not like to share! We also spent a good amount of time at home relaxing and was extremely thankful that the wifi was speedy and that cable television was available. The kitchen was great as well with every appliance you would need. There's a nice area to sit outside and relax as well while you are surrounded by the lovely palms. Overall we were very satisfied with our choice and would stay here again.
This property was everything we needed for a 4 day trip to Exuma. The house was very clean and well maintained location was perfect close to everything. Air conditioners worked great and water pressure was great. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family. Santana's on Little Exuma has the best food on the island.Thanks
This property was everything we needed for our trip. Clean, well stocked and location was excellent. Would highly recommend this property.
Exuma is an Island with lots of great restaurants and activities. Locals are always smiling and happy to show you the area and teach you about local cuisine and culture.
