Here is the three kids enjoying another boring day in Exuma. They couldn't bring the family dog, so they had to settle for the swimming pigs.

Mike McNamara purchased this villa in 2008

Very private and secluded, yet can easily access all of the island amenities.

GREAT SPOT

  • 4 out of 5
My wife and our two very young boys headed to this VRBO along with another couple and their two young kids. I had some fears about travelling with kids etc but Unit 1 at Jimmy Hill was the perfect setting to make our family trip amazing. The villa is in a spectacular setting, views that are tough to beat anywhere, very well kept grounds (thanks to Marco), stunning pool with hot tub was great for the kids and the beach right out front was unbeatbale. The villa is really nicely appointed with 3 very large rooms and a 4th that is perfect for up to 4 kids to share. All the bathrooms were large and I enjoyed the owners taste for great showers. The ground floor is all open concept which was excellent for meal times with the kids and the kicthen was very well finished. This place is nice!! Even nicer when you look out the front doors and see only blue waters with the odd dolphin swimming by. The owner was a huge help in giving us some guidance in seeing the island. We did a boat trip with Sugar Adventures which I highly recommend (his new parner T-T is fantastic). I think renting cars and cruising the other beaches and into town is a must. Not much we didn't really love about this. This unit has lots of privacy and views. The only thiing to watch for would be the sand flies in the early evening as they can be tough on the feet and legs. For us this place was great. The owner has an amazing spot that I suggest works for many different travellers looking for a higher end villa on beautiful island. We will be back.

AMAZING VILLA!

  • 5 out of 5
This review is long overdue. We traveled in October of last year from Wilmington, NC. We had 3 couples on our trip, who are all very we'll traveled and like to stay in upscale places. The MacShack exceeded our expectations. The villa was so nice and well kept. The pool and beach were unbelievable gorgeous! And Mike, the owner, was so pleasant to deal with. We had the entire property to ourselves the entire week. It was a wonderful vacation, and when we go back to Great Exuma we will be calling Mike to stay in his villa!

BEST FAMILY VACATION FOR MAKING MEMORIES

  • 5 out of 5
the Mac Shack was perfect in every way. we travel a great deal and have stayed at some fine places, but this was at the top. From the minute you open the door and see that view, see the furnishings, see the layout of the house , to all the amenities , you know this was going to be a great week. We were a family of 8 (daughters, sons-in law and 8 and 5 yr old) and this house was perfect for us. The location is great. We got to know the neighbors and every night we would get together . Great time! The recommended restaurants, the trip with Sugar Adventures(got to use Sugar) was spot on. We are making memories with our grandsons and this was at the top of their list. The Derrick Family

SPECTACULAR HOME IN A SPECTACULAR LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had a fantastic vacation at the "Mac Shack." The home is very well appointed with great amenities, it's well maintained, and it's incredibly spacious and comfortable. We spent a week at the house with our two small children (ages 2 and 5), so the children's room (with bunks and a trundle bed) was a huge help and the pool and beach couldn't have been more lovely or conveniently located. We really felt like we were in paradise.


Thanks go to Mike for being so helpful and hospitable. He was full of great restaurant/activity recommendations, he was extremely responsive through the inquiry and reservation process...overall, he was fantastic to work with.

I am hoping to make a return trip in 2014!

TRULY THE BEST!

  • 5 out of 5
Mike's home exceeded our expectations for our intimate family wedding. The views, landscaping and amenities are amazing, the water spectacular, the privacy priceless. And true to all reviews, Mike could not have been more gracious, offering sound advice and always making himself available to answer any questions prior to our arriving. In fact, he was even helpful in the wedding plans, helping me pick the location on the beach for photography (the coral cove to the left of the house on the beach -- magnificent!), find the wedding planner, recommend activities for our guests and generally instill confidence that this was going to be an amazing experience. And it truly was a wonderful, memorable experience. Thanks, Mike!

EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 out of 5
The Mac house exceeded our expectations and Mike was a joy to work with during the process. My Wife an i own a high end property on Homeaway so we tend to be picky.....but don't be concerned as I believe this is the best available rental on Great Exuma and the beachfront is truly magical. In fact so much so a picture I took is my IPOD home screen. My family and I really had a great time and although with my Brother In Laws family with us making it a party of eight we were extremely comfortable in this property. The amenities of the complex are wonderful such as the Saltwater pool and Jacuzzi but the location of this property is beyond belief.....five minutes away from the Airport but your immersed into a world of 100 shades of blue as you enter and see the amazing view of the Ocean walking through the front door. Mike, thank you for everything including all of the great suggestions like Harris and Sugar Adventures. If your traveling soon to the Exuma's this is the place you should book...it is worth every penny and will exceed your expectations. Mike, we look forward to having your Family at our property this Summer, and hope you are as happy as we were with your beautiful home. Dan and Laura.
