Make a holiday rental home or villa in Great Exuma, Bahamas your home away from home

Exuma is the name for a group of over 360 islands in the Bahamas, of which Great Exuma is the largest and one of only several which have permanent residents and holiday accommodation. With year-round warm weather, beautiful sandy beaches, clear warm waters and a laid-back, friendly atmosphere, the Bahamas is the dream holiday destination for many, and a visit to Great Exuma takes you away from the main island and onto a small and peaceful paradise isle.
