About Mike McNamara

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

Why Mike McNamara chose Great Exuma

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

A 'Super-Vacation'

A 'Super-Vacation'
  • 5 out of 5
Let's be real here - the photos/description do absolutely no justice to the place! This place is amazing. We had the fortune of traveling with a family of 20, including 8 children and staying in two of the homes in the development. Mike made it easy and helped with accommodations for the additional home, being just a few houses over. Our family dubbed it the 'Super-Vacation' and continue to talk about it - a month later. Plans are already in the works to try to come back in 2015.

The house is amazing. the living room easily accommodated the entire family for meals and to chill. There was no shortage of views of the amazing water, from the house, the outdoor furniture and around the pool chairs. Not just the home itself, but the entire property was maintained extremely well, thanks to Norman and the team! The beach is private and I'd rank it one of the best on all of Grand Exuma. The pool is an added bonus when it got late in the day for the kids.

The whole experience was great. Mike was extremely hospitable, even with all the emails and phone calls we made, he helped make the trip memorable. With all of his advice, we were prepared with all the things needed to make the trip memorable before we even step foot on the island. day trips, car rentals, bakery/store information, what to bring etc.

I'd recommend this place to anyone. Can't forget - loved being able to open up the NanaWall System completely during the day, and having the nice view when closed.

So much to talk about, so much to praise, but you can't get truly appreciate it from a review or any pictures, you have to be there to experience it.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for spring break 2014 with another family. Exactly - if not better than described. 4 bedrooms(2 masters) worked out great! This home has all the amenities you would expect from your own home. Pool and hot tub right out front. 2 minutes from airport. 15 minutes to the boat rental place. The owner is so responsive and helped us with restaurant recommendations as well as car and boat rental. Thanks so much for an amazing vacation!

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!
