Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Great Exuma - Nemo House

Gourmet Kitchen, Huge Great room, 4 bedrooms with Ensuites,Pristine quiet beach

This stunning, newly built home provides all the modern amenities needed for a private, relaxing vacation on the beautiful island of Great Exuma.

At $6,300.00 USD per week, the cost per couple equates to $225.00 per night per bedroom suite based on a 4 couple occupancy. There is room to sleep children in each of the 4 bedroom suites so it is perfect for families too. Plan a vacation in this large house to reconnect with friends or with family.

Located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Great Exuma and only an 8 minute drive from the Georgetown International Airport. It is central to all activities on the island but still on a very private stretch of beach.

Many direct flights from Toronto (3hrs), Miami (1 hour), Atlanta ( 2 hrs) and Nassau (35min)serve this carefree, casual and quaint island.

Exuma provides a perfect balance of simplicity and amenities for families, executives, couples and friends wanting to escape the stresses of work and everyday life. If you love white sand, pristine waters, surfing, snorkeling, golfing, fishing, scuba diving, boating, fresh fish and friendly people...then you will fall in love with Great Exuma.

The new house offers a 1100 square foot Great Room with lounging, media and dining areas. There are four-500 square foot, King-size master suites with ensuites that include walk in showers, soaking tubs and private toileting areas . The gourmet kitchen offers solid surface counters, double refrigerators, dishwasher, induction cooktop and everything needed for preparing great meals. Nearby restaurants and in-house chef services are also available.

A 1000 square foot wrap around porch, overlooking the beach, provides outdoor living areas next to the sparkling, warm waters of Exuma. This is one of the best beaches in Exuma. You are often the only people on the beach but it is central to all island amenities making this location the most convenient on all of Great Exuma.

Within eight minutes of leaving the airport you will be sipping a cool drink on the white sand beach beside the emerald waters of Tar Bay. The bay is protected by a reef a mile away and the sandy bottom and shallow waters are safe for kids. The crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkeling and on a calm day- kayaking is a must. The summer water temperature is 85 degrees.

A short 8 minute drive east you will find the charming and friendly town of Georgetown, capital of this island archipelago of 3800 permanent residents. You will find everything you need for meal and drink preparation, satisfy your urge to shop at the straw market and boutiques and visit interesting historic sites. Order up some fresh Lobster, Grouper, Tuna or Mahi Mahi from the local fisherman and they will deliver it to the house.

This is a low key, laid back island with none of the hustle and bustle of tourist destinations- perfect for a relaxing vacation - Don't expect casinos, fast food restaurants and designer shopping here. The Exumas will offer a vacation where you reconnect with yourself and your family and friends.

Rent a boat, or hire an experienced captain from Minn's boat rentals to explore the clear, calm waters of Elizabeth Harbour. Don't forget to see the crustaceans at Starfish Beach and visit Sand Dollar beach to hunt for these treasures. A freshly made conch salad and cold Kalik beer at or Big D's or Chat and Chill on Stocking Island is a necessity for this boat trip. If boat rental is not an option for you then a water taxi will get you to Stocking island where you can partake in the fun with other sailors, visitors and locals. Have fun with a game of beach volleyball on the sand court , sip an icy Bahama Mama cocktail on a beach chair or feed the domesticated stingrays that hang out looking for food and a stroke on the back.

The love of water is probably the greatest attraction to Exuma. Here you can take your pick of Scubadiving (Dive Exuma), Parasurfing, snorkelling and even surfing on the ocean side of Stocking Island.

Bone-fishing enthusiasts know that Exuma is top-ranked for this sport. There are many charter companies available for hire.

Exuma is like home. Friendly, relaxing and inviting.

FROM TORONTO: Direct flights are available from Toronto on Sundays . Try searching BOTH the Air Canada Vacations website (www.vacations.aircanada.com) AND the Air Canada website (www.aircanada.com) for different pricing options. Availability and pricing is often quite different on each website for the same flight. Expect return flight costs between $380 and $900 depending on the dates. Contact the Owner (Cindy) about how to get the cheapest flights.

Direct Flights to Georgetown (GGT) are also available via Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta and Nassau with the large airlines. Return flight costs can vary from $200 to $500. If you fly into Nassau then there are at least 5 daily flights between Nassau and Exuma (Georgetown GGT) available with SkyBahamas or Bahamas Air at a cost of approximately $100 each way.

About Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc.

Our family fell head over heels in love for the Exumas because it provided a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Exuma offers friendly people and quaint lifestyle that lets you 'chill out'. There are no shopping malls, fast food chains, cruise ships, or stop lights. Exuma has the perfect balance of things to do and see, restaurants, gift shops, sports and an abundance of times when you will feel like doing nothing.

Our first vacation to Exuma was the best vacation we had ever had. We returned refreshed and rejuvenated.

We feel fortunate that we can offer guests this wonderful island home.

Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. purchased this house in 2012

Why Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. chose Great Exuma

This property has a perfect location because it is only 8 minutes from the airport. After the stress of flying you breeze through the Georgetown airport, walk 50 paces to pick up your rental car and within an 8 minute drive you are relaxing on the porch, with a cold drink. Don't worry the airplanes are not a disturbance as there are only a handful of flights per day.

The 3 hour flight from Toronto is non-stop with Air Canada on Sundays. There are direct flights also from Atlanta (Delta), Nassau and Miami.

The house is centrally located on the island, close to shopping in Georgetown, restaurants and Sandals golf course.

Did we mention that it is on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach you will ever encounter. With water so clear and warm and of the colour blue that you will never forget.

What makes this house unique

We designed this house to be perfect for larger groups. Whether it is 2 families with kids, 4 couples, or parents, grandparents and grandchildren. It is large and spacious, has an enourmous Great room, wrap around porch, comfortable furniture and all of the things you would need to make wonderful meals, be entertained, relax, conduct business (if you must) and simply feel like you are at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

That was the best vacation home we have ever rented. Looking forward to returning.

Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
Nemo House on Great Exuma is truly amazing. Having my morning coffee and watching the sunrise from the front deck was incredible. The house is perfectly designed and caters to 4 couples perfectly. Each bedroom comes with an en suite, a comfortable bed and extra pillows! The common area is huge with lots of windows and a fantastic view of the ocean. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities and new appliances. (the double refrigerator is an extra bonus). Many gourmet meals were prepared during our stay.
The property is located on a quiet beach steps away from the ocean. We swam often, kayaked, relaxed, and walked the beach everyday. Restaurants, liquor store, grocery store all near by. The airport….less than10min away.
Renting a boat is a must. Finding the sandbar in the middle of the ocean, having lunch at the Chat’n’Chill, feeding the stingrays, and snorkeling makes a great day of adventure.

We had a fantastic week at Nemo House and will definitely be returning!

Wow, a winner at. First sight.

  • 5 out of 5
Nemo House is a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the ocean indoors as well as outdoors from the large wrap around veranda.
The house is beautiful, luxurious, functional. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed cooking in a kitchen that is equipped for a chef.
After enjoying the beach for a few days, we took a water taxi to Stocking island where we were visited by sting rays.
Exuma is a quiet island, the people are friendly and very welcoming.
The caretakers of Nemo House were very attentive and inquired periodically to make sure we were comfortable.
Our arrival and departure at the small airport was smooth, no stress.
I enjoyed my stay at Nemo House tremendously. It is a place where you can find peace and serenity in a beautiful setting inside as well as outside.

Just loved it.

Beautiful, Clean, Top Quality and Well Appointed!

  • 5 out of 5
Just like heaven!
Escaping to such an unspoiled island was easy when we could relax with all the creature comforts of home. A gourmet kitchen and plenty of room for all of us! The 'great room' was gigantic with room for everyone to relax when we were not out playing. We have already booked for our next stay, can't wait to make it our home away from home again. Thanks for EVERYTHING!
We traveled through Nassau and then used an island hopper flight to Exuma with no delays. Taxis were easily available, but, we rented a car to explore the island. The town was quaint and the stores carried high quality goods and fresh foods. One particular butcher/deli carried some very nice items imported from 'states-side' suppliers. We also enjoyed freshly caught lobster!
The beach property was outstanding. Very Private. The kids were never bored, sand and surf was beautiful! Very modern amenities inside the house provided ease and comfort for cooking and laundry. We did not choose housekeeping options during our stay but we will next time.
Again, thanks for the lovely time and we will see Nemo House again in 2015!

Ultimate Beach House

  • 5 out of 5
The house is situated on a small hill overlooking the ocean. It has a long covered porch with an incredible view where you can listen to the waves and enjoy the ocean breeze. Centred off the porch is a set of stairs that leads down to the clean white sand beach -- great for long walks and ocean swims.
The interior space is equally amazing. The main living space is an airy, open-concept kitchen, family room and dining room. The kitchen has everything that you can imagine and some. And, it’s a pleasure to cook in a kitchen with a picturesque view of the ocean. The bedrooms with en suites are also impressive – similar to an exclusive boutique hotel. No detail was overlooked.
Our days were spent exploring the beach (rarely seeing other people), collecting sea shells, swimming in the turquoise water, and relaxing on the porch. One day we rented boats and headed out to some spectacular snorkelling spots stopping for lunch at the Chat ‘n Chill on Stocking Island. We also enjoyed petting the sting rays and eating fresh conch salad (and watching it being prepared).
For the kids, the highlights include cracking open a coconut that fell from a palm tree along the beach, hunting for crabs at night with flashlights, and paddling in the tandem ocean kayaks.
Nemo House is a pearl of a beach house. It’s a great place for a group of friends or an extended family -- perfect for rest, relaxation, and tranquility.

Nemo place was everything described. The house was very clean and had all we needed. There was a lot to keep busy with and the relaxing view was my favourite. I would highly recommend this place and would love to return in the near future.

Great Exuma is an island of simplicity and solitude and the colour of the water around this picturesque Bahamian island is unlike any other.

Your stay at Nemo house in Great Exuma will be a relaxing one. You can watch the kids play on the child safe beach while you enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch. In the evenings enjoy the calming sound of the surf nearby while you enjoy a freshly caught lobster dinner, or go to a local restaurant 'Rake and Scrape' or the Fish Fry for some local food, music and entertainment.

The clear, warm waters provide excellent fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. On a calm day you can wade into the shallow, white sand bottom waters and on a windy day the waves are high enough for surfing off Stocking island. Nearby Georgetown offers boat rentals, boat guides, grocery and liquor stores as well as restaurants and shops. A short 15 minute drive west to Sandals Emerald Bay resort will bring you to the Spa at Sandals and the Greg Norman designed golf course.

Georgetown International Airport welcomes many direct flights from Toronto (3 hours), Nassau (35Min), Miami (1 hour) and Atlanta (2 hours)
