Property description

Exuma Vacation Cottages: located away from the congestion, noise, crowding of George Town. The cottage has two bedrooms, 1 bedroom with 1 double bed, the other bedroom with 1 queen bed. Equipped kitchen, living room and screened front porch.Located directly across from Moriah Harbour Cay, which has been designated a Bahamian National Park. Moriah Harbour Cay has miles of the most beautiful, pristine (and almost always deserted) beaches in the world. Between the Cay and your cottage are some of the best bonefishing flats in the Bahamas.

Next to Moriah Harbour Cay is Man O’ War Cay, which also has miles of beautiful, deserted beaches, with great shelling, snorkeling, and swimming. All of these activities are a short kayak ride away (your own two person sit-on-top kayak is included with your cottage rental). You can kayak through awesome mangrove channels, fish for yellow tail snapper,and bone fish or just relax and enjoy views that very few others can see and appreciate. At the end of the day, relax on your screened porch overlooking the ocean and Moriah Harbour Cay, or have a swim in our 35 foot solar heated fresh-water pool, and plan your next day’s activities.
Your onsite host, Valerie, has resided in Exuma since 1964. She can direct you to and assist you in: finding the best bone fish guide; getting to the 'right' restaurant and finding island entertainment that you will enjoy; renting a car or boat; exploring the island from Little Exuma to Barraterre; finding secluded beaches; going snorkeling, diving and deep-sea fishing; shopping for the essentials and gifts for the folks at home. She can advise you about all aspects of your vacation experience - travel to and from Exuma, what to bring, what to expect, and how to make the most of your visit to this special place.

Car: Recommended

Located in a quiet isolated area overlooking Moriah Harbour Cay with beautiful beaches only a 10 minute paddle away by kayak, or 5 minutes in your rental car. Fish the flats with good bone fish guides. Try your hand at catching snapper and blue runner jacks. Protected water for fishing and kayaking. It is only 400 feet down to the rocky shoreline and dock ,where the kayaks are kept. Paddle out in the kayak and explore. Look for turtles, starfish and many other sea creatures, or relax and do nothing by our 35ft solar heated fresh water pool. Enjoy a cool

drink and listen to the birds sing.

Explore many beautiful beaches all over the Island. Eat in small local restaurants or take your own picnic with you onto the beach. Rent a self drive boat or take a charter. Be as busy or

as lazy as you wish. It's your vacation.
