This house is perfect for romantic getaways, groups of couples, or families with children. Enjoy panoramic views from the observatory and sun deck with lounge chairs. Grab a drink from the indoor bar, enjoy some music from the Bose Ipod player and watch the waves from the hammock or outdoor shower. Enjoy a BBQ dinner on the new Weber Stainless Grill within the 18x41’outdoor courtyard with extensive seating (or hire a Bahamian Cook).

Sandals Emerald Bay & Garnd Isle Resort: The house is approximately 2.5 miles from the new Sandals Emerald Bay, Greg Norman Golf, Spa and Marina, as well as Grand Isle Resort. The golf course is a Greg Norman designed course. You will certainly want to eat out and some of the new restaurants, or have our local Bahamian cook come to the house to prepare a meal for you. Or arrange for Capt. Pat Smith to take you fishing for the freshest fish, lobster or conch. Take a look at our main website at www.exumabeachrental.com for more information.

Excursions with Pat (on his boat -- The4Cs): There are a host of excursions available during your stay. Captain Pat Smith is a fisherman and has a boat for tours and various excursions. He is a life-long Exuma resident and a great resource for all things regarding Exuma. He has a 30 foot boat and can plan a day (or half-day) for your group to head out by boat to the various Cays; to the Exuma Land & Sea Park; fishing, conch and/or lobster gathering; a trip to Staniel Cay (also the home of Thunder-ball Grotto (extraordinary caves for exploration, etc., where the James Bond movie “Thunderball” was filmed)); Sampson Cay (home of the swimming pigs); Iguana Cay (these iguanas are more like small dinosaurs); Sandy Cay (where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed) as well as a tours of the islands and cays owned by various celebrities (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill; David Copperfield; Johnny Depp; Nicholas Cage, etc.). There are many more things to see and do and you should speak with Pat well before your arrival.

Recent Renovation: Note that in 2012, all five bedrooms of the house were completely renovated in two phases.

At first, the free standing pod, which contains two bedrooms and one shared bathroom, was gutted from floor to ceiling. The newly constructed unit now contains two newly constricted 13 x 13 bedrooms and one new, oversized shared bathroom. Each bedroom has a queen bed. Please see our main website at www.exumabeachrental.com for the latest info on the house and Exuma generally.

In December 2012 we likewise completed the renovation of the three bedrooms on the main section of the house. The Master Bedroom and Bathroom were completely gutted and are new from floor to ceiling: new imported tile floors with high-end custom woodwork wainscoting and crown moldings. The oversized en-suite Master Bathroom is likewise new, with an oversized walk-in shower, free standing double vanities and a separate toilet room. The Master Bedroom is also flanked by a walk-in closet.

Bedrooms two and three were likewise renovated, with newly finished walls, custom bead-board wood working and crown moldings.

My family and I live on Long Island in New York and get to Exuma as often as possible.

Kimberley M. Barnes purchased this house in 2005

My parents had been traveling to Exuma since the early 1970s and I vacationed there very often as a child and young adult.

If you go to Exuma, you want to be on the water (there is no sense traveling there and not having immediate, regular beach access). That is the best part of Calypso, it is beach front, and the beach is quiet, nearly secluded, which is merely steps out the back door. That beach, and the 16 foot square deck perched about 20 feet above the ocean the coral bluff, are the perfect way to spend a day or a week on Exuma.

Great Home! Very large with a total of 5 bedrooms. We had a great time! The home is nicely equipped with all the comforts of home, including a well stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture inside and outside, and they even supply beach towels (many beach homes require renters to bring their own.)

But the most amazing part of this home is the beach! When we walked into the living area and saw the three sets of glass doors we were overtaken by the most amazing view we've ever seen? Paradise! The water is that gorgeous Caribbean blue color. The photos do not do this beach justice!

The hosts, Kim and Leo are very personable and professional. It's apparent that they have anticipated all of your needs while you are renting their home. They also have a hard working, dedicated staff to take care of anything that happens while you are there. They'll also serve as your tour guide and they'll even prepare you a wonderful meal! I would not hesitate to rent this home again.

We had a very pleasant stay at your Calypso Beach House and exploring your beautiful Island was a great joy. Thanks for your Guest Info Packet, it helped a lot to figure out what to visit on our, unfortunately, too short stay!

I just wanted to write and let you know that we had a really phenomenal week at Calypso house and we didn't want to leave! Thank you for all your recommendations. We loved Sand Dollar Beach and went there twice. Catch a Fire was a great time too. We hired Four Cs and Captain Andrew took us out for the day and we had a fabulous day on the water. When we returned home, our friends saw the pictures and heard about our experience and all want to go now too! So I wouldn't be surprised if you get some referrals too.
