About the property

The Prime Cut is a two bedroom cottage we built for ourselves ten + years ago, and it's still the only building located on our 13.8 acre beachfront property on Little Exuma. We're now offering to rent to visitors for the first time.

We are on a private road, but we're still only about a mile from a convenience store and a liquor store. There are five restaurants on this little island, and Little Exuma is connected by bridge to Great Exuma where you will find shopping, banks, restaurants and several hotels. We are only 8 miles from George Town and a 35 minute drive to the George Town International Airport (GGT, MYEF). Only a few miles further down the road you can play the famous Greg Norman designed golf course at Emerald Bay.

Little Exuma offers world class bonefishing right off our South shore, and our waters are so special that several professional kayak outfitters from as far away as Alaska come here for their own vacations. The many nearby beaches are all fine white sand, and the water here is as clear as Gin, so snorkeling and diving are memorable experiences.

Santanna's is a gathering place for locals and celebrities alike to mingle and enjoy some great Bahamian cooking. The Arawak Club serves the best Conch Fritters in the world. Tropic Breeze offers some wonderful unique dishes in a style they call Bahamian Fusion. Anne's Turtle Pond restaurant serves Anne's really terrific cooking, but call ahead to make sure she's not off catering a "cooked on site meal" for some lucky visitor.

This listing is quite new, so we don't have many reviews here yet, however in the past we've received excellent reviews that are posted elsewhere.

About Dave

My dad bought 20 acres at the cut in '64. My wife and I retired here in '05 to build our own little paradise. We'd planned to build a big house, but it would have taken too long to get power to the place we wanted to put it, so we built this little cottage to live in 'til then. We loved the simpler life in the cottage so much that we decided not to build the big house after all. Since then we've sold a few lots where our new friends have built their dream houses, but we've kept most of the land, so our cottage is still very private.

Dave purchased this cottage in 1964

Why Dave chose Exuma

Our land is on a small peninsula, so our privacy is guaranteed.

What makes this cottage unique

We have frontage on the Beach on the North side of the property, and on the tidal creaks at the South.

Excellent Value in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

As described...just take a minute and read the reviews! No, the house isn't "on the beach", but just a VERY short walk to some of the prettiest views you'll ever take in. Not to mention the privacy! House isn't the newest or fanciest in the Bahamas, but you're not being charged for the fanciest or newest either. We found it quite adequate for our needs. Very clean. Everything works. Comfortable furniture. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

I first visited Little Exuma in 1961, and I loved the island and its people from the start. A lot has changed since then. We now have paved roads, phones and power, and much more, but the people are just as friendly as ever. We retired to this cottage in 2005, and now we're sharing it with you when we're "off island."
