About Jackie Ferris
Interested in buying a holiday property for years, then fell in love with Exuma when we went on vacation. Island's amazing, and this beach is incredible.
Jackie Ferris purchased this House in 2014
Why Jackie Ferris chose Forbes Hill
The most spectacular setting and beach we'd ever seen, and the house was modern, well decorated and well equipped.
What makes this House unique
Great combination of beach and sun with places to sit in the shade and just watch the water. Upstairs balcony off the bedrooms with rocking chairs is just about the best place to read in the world. There are two double kayaks, a hammock and full sized laundry machines, as well as lots of water toys.

Lovely home and beach!
My family stayed here the week before Thanksgiving. It was heaven on earth! The house was well decorated, and we loved the layout. The beds were very comfortable. We used a local Chef, Gavin Nottage, who was recommended by the property manager, and he was such a creative, wonderful chef. The kitchen accommodated him well. The beach was so beautiful, soft white sands and lovely water. We will definitely rent here again. Our first trip to the Exumas but it won’t be our last!
Had a wonderful stay again at our favorite place to vacation at Papaya House Can’t wait to go back again!
Fourth stay at Papaya House
This was our fourth stay at the Papaya house, the location and beach are by far our favorite place in all of Exuma.
Plenty of items in the kitchen to cook your own meals. The kids enjoyed playing the Playstation during rainy periods.
Definitely will be back for a 5th visit in 2020.
We were very pleased with the property! Tons of room in the house and the beach was amazing! It’s a good drive from Georgetown so cab drivers are not willing to travel that far from the airport. Be prepared to rent a car to get around the island. Other than that, this place is well worth it.
Beautiful house on the best beach
We were looking for a peaceful retreat on the beach. What we got was a beautiful home located on the best beach on the island. Every room has ocean views. Loved the garden with the fresh vegetables and herbs. We made use of the newly built screened in porch too. Not very many homes have 2 master suites and this house offers 3! All facing the water with large sliding doors so you can fall asleep listening to the waves. We were far enough away from the airport that we decided to rent a car but found that the island is so small that nothing is far. The owners provided a book of suggestions for activities. This was extremely helpful. Thanks to this beautiful home and all of the little touches our dreams of a fabulous beach retreat vacation was by far exceeded!! Thank you!!
Glad you had a great stay and hope you return to Papaya House and Exuma!
Papaya House is located in a remote area of Little Exuma- about 35-45 minutes south of Georgetown.
Our first visit to this island so there were some learning hurdles - groceries, liquor, restaurants, hours of operation, etc. Next visit will prove less stressful having more information.
The house itself is situated on one of the most beautiful coves of the island. It is remote and pristine. The house is very comfortable size for 3 adult couples and even a couple of children or small adults who don’t mind sleeping on twin beds. The kitchen has pretty much all the tools, appliances, etc. needed to cook there. The owner even has a great herb garden on premises.
The house has some age and needs some updating but it is clean. There was an AC issue which could not be resolved while occupied.
There are kayaks and floats - a couple of beach chairs. Plenty of beach towels.
Bring good walking shoes to explore beaches down the way....very rocky.
I am glad you had a great stay overall. The leaking AC has been fixed. Glad you enjoyed the garden - passionfruit just coming into season!
Perfect combination of away from it all and easy access to activities.
