ELEGANT BEACHFRONT HOME BY SANDALS EMERALD BAY EXUMA, BAHAMAS

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

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Hart House. Our beautiful beachfront home offers 3500 square feet of exquisite modern living space including a covered wrap-around deck located on a white sandy, expansive beach. Ideally situated, you are minutes from the Sandals Resort at Emerald Bay, near fine dining and the modern spa at Grand Isle, fifteen minutes from Georgetown (GGT) International airport, minutes from the Greg Norman designed golf course at Emerald Bay and less than 40 minutes from Georgetown.

There are four large soundproofed bedrooms each with a king sized bed, large closet, 40' flat screen HD TV, Direct TV satellite receiver and air conditioning with personal controls. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and three have large double showers, one has a bath/shower combination and all have double sinks. There are lots of beach and bathroom towels, extra linens, furniture and storage space.

There is stone look tile throughout, central air and ceiling fans in dining and living areas. The dining room seats eight comfortably and features a birds-eye maple table with matching hutch. The large kitchen features a modern glass top stove, built in microwave, refrigerator / freezer and plenty of flatware and dishes. You can enjoy dining outdoors with a complete set of outdoor dishes and glasses.

The large deck overlooks the ocean and features a salt water infinity pool, 14' gazebo, salt water hot tub and large three sided bar offering long ocean and beach views. It has an attached 3 piece washroom, bar fridge, ice-maker and sink. There are short steps down to a wooden deck with two outdoor, open showers at the beach allowing you to rinse off sand and salt in a natural environment.

The beach at Hart House is exceptional. All of the beaches along the coast of Exuma are remarkable with their beautiful multi-hued turquoise colors. Our beach is unique in that it rarely has the crashing waves commonly found at other properties. If you prefer the quiet, calm, softly lapping sounds and wish to enjoy quiet, clean water suitable for children or adults then this is the place to be.

There is peace to be found enjoying your morning coffee or breakfast out in the gazebo. You can gaze out over the incredibly beautiful waters and in the distance see the dark blue of the deep ocean crashing over the reef which protects this piece of paradise.

Stroll down to the water, coffee in hand and feel the gentle waves slowly lapping over your feet. There is not a rock to be found either on the beach or in the water. For those who enjoy long walks on the beach for pleasure or excercise the sand is packed firmly and sloped properly for brisk walking or jogging. If your travel plans feature a beautiful beach and luxurious accommodations as a priority then this is the place for you.

There are very few private homes on the island that do not experience power outages from time to time. Instead of flashlights and candles Hart House has a large 50 KVA power generator with an auto transfer switch. If power goes out you may not even know it. While the rest of the area is in darkness you can still enjoy the outside lighting, music or your favorite tv program.

We live in the cold climate and love to get away during the dreary winter months. Our search for the perfect beach started over 25 years ago and when we discovered Exuma we knew our search had ended. We enjoy boating, fishing, golf and lazing by the pool. We have reached a place in our lives where we are enjoying the finer things, we enjoy peace, quiet, fine wines, good food and pleasant friends. Hart House is our piece of Paradise and we hope you find it that way too

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

After searching many islands we found the perfect beach. It is long, private, sandy bottom, with crystal clear water. It is the perfect get away. The house is built for couples, singles or families. It is close to the Georgetown airport and is extremely quiet. You can drive to quaint little outdoor restaurants or take short trips and enjoy two of the most beautiful beaches in all of The Bahamas.

Private, elegant living. Minutes from Sandals Resort and golf course at Emerald Bay. Thirty minute drive to visit Stocking Island and its famous Chat n' Chill beach bar or forty five minute drive to the Tropic of Cancer beach voted one of the most beautiful beaches of The Bahamas. Quite frankly I like our beach better.

Awesome Trip House was Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
This trip was awesome! 8 in our party ranging in ages 15-55. All had fun, nothing to complain about. House, Pool, Hot tub, Outdoor Bar, Gazebo is a pitching wedge away from the ocean! Reefs in front of the house, snorkeling is great on these reefs. There is an uninhabited island directly across from the house looks far away but we rented a kayak and paddled to it in 30 minutes bring your water shoes and explore! Be sure to do the wave runner tour thru Exuma007. Although impressive, the photos did not capture the property's features as the property actually is in person. I was really surprised upon arrival. The Pool Patio area is very large, bar is very large, salt water pool is infinity with a light show at night, changing colors from purple to aqua to green and more, very cool!
Had massage inside the gazebo near ocean simply heavenly. Bose player is onsite it holds a iPhone 4 so bring an iPhone 5 adapter, several outdoor outlet locations to plug it in. Most sightseeing attractions were within 20-25 minutes north or south on the Island. Be sure to head off the Stocking Island on a Sunday for a Pig Roast, Great Hut Bar and other items on the menu. I would highly recommend and I would return myself.

Wonderful week at Hart House

  • Review Submitted: 10-Jul-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
My husband and I and two other couples spent a week at Hart House. I had seen it listed on VRBO and read the reviews of previous guests. It was exactly as described! The direct flight from Atlanta was perfect and the car rental pickup and return was right there at the airport. John Toker met us and helped with luggage and led us to the house. He was very pleasant and gave us great advise on restaurants, and different things during our stay. The house was perfect with the four private bedrooms/baths and open living space, great kitchen with everything we needed. The outdoors, with the covered bar area (complete with icemaker) was perfect for cocktails and getting out of the sun when needed. The extra 1/2 bath outside was a huge plus also! Alsaida came daily to make the beds, clean up and do our personal laundry! What a treat! We would definitely pack lighter next time! Plenty of beach towels were provided for our use. Big D's was a nice walk down the beach and we enjoyed dinner there 2 nights. We went over to Stocking Island and enjoyed talking to the locals at the Chat 'n' Chill - great place for beer or drinks and even a fresh grilled cheeseburger and fries. There was plenty to do if you wanted to venture out but we spent most of our time relaxing at the house and beach with our friends. I would highly recommend Hart House!

Great House and Location - Just As Listed

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-May-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
My family of 7 adults and a 7 month old infant stayed 8 night at Hart House. Everyone thought it was the perfect house and location. Although just a little remote from George Town, the beach and house amenities were fantastic. The 4 bedrooms are basically identical, which makes deciding whoo gets which bedroom a lot easier. Much thought went into the construction of the house, such as sound proof walls. We could only slightly hear our infant grand daughter cry from her room to our room.

The house is stocked with little things that many rental properties do not include. The gazebo, outside bar, and pool are great. The surrounding gardens are beautifully kept. The most neighboring peaple we saw on the beach at one time was 4.

The house keeper, Elsada (sp?) came every other day to clean, wash dishes, take out garbage and recycling, wash and replace linens, and even do our persal laundry. We didn't expect that much from the house keeping services.

John, the house owner, was very easy to work with. He ever tried to find decent flight for us when we were looking at long airport layovers as our only option.

John, the local property manager, went out our his way to make our family feel comfortable. He met our arrival at the airport, and although we had 2 cars reserved (a necessity), he helped us to the house with galf clubs and baby strollers. He even arranged for a travel crib to be at the house. On our departure, he again came to the house and led us back to the airport. We called him a couple of times throughout the week asking for local excursion info, and his advise was always right-on.

The house, location, amenities, and services are exactly as described on the listing. You will like it.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • Review Submitted: 11-Dec-2012
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2012
Where can I begin? The house was gorgeous & laid out perfect for our family vacation. There were four couples and everyone had their own "comfy" bed & big bathroom. We have rented many homes on VRBO and this one had everything-every kitchen utensil you could think of, and a drawer full of any spice you need for cooking. We cooked everyday and the kitchen was perfect! The beautiful pool, hot tub & the outside space was perfect-the outside bar area was our favorite place to hang out. The beach was wonderful and private. We did go to Big D's for dinner one night and it was fantastic! There is a duty free store 5 minutes away which was great, but you will have to go to GeorgeTown for groceries. John Toker, the property manager was awesome, he was a great help with any questions we had about shopping/food/activities. The maid service (sorry we didn't get her name) was great! The only small complaint we had was that the internet and phone service wasn't very reliable. Normally we wouldn't care, but we had other plans to make to continue our vacation on the island. Everyone on the island was great-from the fisherman down the beach (THANKS for the fish/lobster) to the cab & water taxis in GeorgeTown. WE LOVED THE EXUMAS & LOVED HART HOUSE! We love to travel but we may have found our new home away from home-WE WILL BE BACK! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Wow, this is the first time I've responded to a review, you guys and everyone who stays there really love the house and the Exuma experience. What can I say...thank you for your kind words.

My apologies for the internet service since this is very important to the clientele that Hart House attracts. I have had intermittent wireless issues recently and usually a boot (unplug at modem) fixes the problem. There is also a hard wire plug-in in each bedroom. If it still doesn't work and the toll free phone has no dial tone then we'll blame the phone company. We call John Toker and he tells us if it's out all over or not, then we reboot and wait.

Some people buy a package at home and set the phone up for satellite when they travel, me, I just sit back and enjoy the view overlooking the pool and ocean, go golfing or take a stroll down the beach. I hope it was not too much of an inconvenience and I'm really happy you all loved your stay. I really enjoyed your review by the way especially the big capital letters for a shout out.

Thank you and all of the people that have given Hart House such wonderful reviews. We truly want everyone who visits Exuma to enjoy the experience as much as we do.
