Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Guests staying at My Blue Heaven (known previously as Yellow Bird House) are only steps away from some of the most beautiful secluded beaches and crystal clear water found anywhere in the world! The beach is very quiet and family friendly. Our home is conveniently located to all the restaurants, bars, grocery and liquor stores. My Blue Heaven is only 5 minutes from the airport and less than 10 minutes from Georgetown. It is perfectly located for those who enjoy getting out and enjoying the island or those wanting to relax at the house and enjoy the miles of pristine beaches.

The house is fully appointed with linens and towels for guests. Each bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bathroom. There is a full AeroBed for additional guests. The home has a fully stocked kitchen for those meals that you are wanting to eat at home, sit back and enjoy the beautiful view. Wanting to grill the fresh fish you just caught? Feel free to use the gas grill on the back veranda.

The home also has a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

Things to do: If you are feeling adventurous and would like to explore the beautiful turquoise waters you can rent kayaks, jet skis or Boston Whalers to explore on your own. Or if you would like to have friendly local guides show you an amazing day you can contact Island Boy Adventures. You can call Elvis to take a water taxi to Chat n Chill for lunch and a local favorite: The Goombay Smash. If you are into bone fishing, Exuma has some of the best in the world.

While the waters are absolutely amazing, there is a lot to do on land. The local residents are amazing. With their beautiful smiles and happy go lucky attitudes they will graciously welcome you to their island. There is very little crime on the island, so you can feel safe exploring and enjoying all of the charming restaurants and stores on the island. Be sure to visit the famous straw market where the local merchants sell their goods.

We have additional photos and would be happy to email them upon request.

About Greg Haus

My Blue Heaven (previously known as Yellow Bird House) was built in 1993 by Charles Lamb for he and his family to enjoy this beautiful piece of paradise. My wife and I recently purchased the home from this lovely family. We have been coming to Exuma for over 15 years. We are hoping to share this amazing island and My Blue Heaven with you. We have two young children that absolutely love coming to Exuma. We are sure you will enjoy this beautiful place as much as we do.

Greg Haus purchased this house in 2016

Why Greg Haus chose Exuma

Silver Beach on Tar Bay is the best beach with the most beautiful water in all the the Bahamas... according to the Bahamians! We cannot disagree :) The crystal blue waters of the ocean are just steps away. The beach in front of the home is absolutely amazing. The beach is very quiet and there is a very good chance you will have the whole beach to yourself!

What makes this house unique

The location of the house is perfect. You are right on the most beautiful beach and you are very close to everything. You are only five minutes from the airport and about ten minutes to town. The grocery store, liquor store and bank are all within a ten minute drive. My Blue Heaven is truly a great place to escape to and relax. Even after many trips, the beach and water just outside our back door still takes our breath away.

Perfect vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the location of it. The beach was beautiful although the water was rough the week we were there. Morning coffee, sitting on the patio listening to the waves were my favorite. The house has everything you will need and more. They suggest drinking bottled water because of the strong chlorine taste to the tap. We went through a gallon a day so stock up on this when you go to the store. Be sure to check out the deli/meat market. We got a prime ribeye there that was the best we’ve ever cooked. Shirley’s was a happening place although we found it not be as good this time around. Tropical Breeze on Little Exuma was really good and Santana is too. Forbes Hill beach was our favorite spot to go. It is paradise. Overall this house was perfect for our vacation and we would stay here again. Greg and Shayvonne were very helpful dealing with a few kinks we encountered. Oh and I had the spa in Georgetown come to the house for a massage on the beach!! My husband said it was the best he’s ever had. We rented a car from Thompson’s and they were easy to deal with. This vacation was just was we needed it to be. Very relaxing!!!! Exuma truly is paradise.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This property is great, I would stay here again, and I recommend it!

THE HOUSE: The bedrooms are huge, the master bathroom has been recently updated and looks great. The AC units in the bedrooms worked great. The kitchen / dining / living room are open and good sized. The kitchen is updated and very nice. The cable and internet are very good and reliable. Previous visitors have started a small collection of beach toys, sunscreen, and bug spray... which is very nice and convenient. Finally, Shayvonne (the in-country contact) is a big help!

Notes - (1) The AC unit used to cool the kitchen / dining / living room wasn't able to keep this area cold during the hottest days of the year. The area was cool and the ceiling fans circulated the air, but it could have been a little colder. To help address this, Shayvonne brought over a floor fan. (2) The dishwasher leaked a little the one time we used it. (3) The last day there, the back door lock started sticking a little, but wasn't a problem for us during our stay. (4) The secondary bathtub has several damaged tiles. We still used the shower, but tried to avoid it.

THE BEACH: The beach is great! The water is blue / green and clear. I swam out pretty far, and it didn't get much deeper than 12'. I had no concerns or fears while out there alone. The highlight is the coral reef right next to the house. It is full of life and an easy swim from the shore. I even found a rare four-legged starfish!

Notes - The water is great, but it isn't as protected as other beaches, thus the water can be a little choppy. Also, the water goes from knee deep to 10' deep quicker than desired.

LOCATION: The house is centrally located just North of town and ideal for traveling North to Barraterre to catch a boat tour... or South to Tropic of Cancer Beach (both I highly recommend) . There is a small convenience store just a few minutes away, and a larger grocery store a couple minutes further down the road. Perfect location.

Notes - (1) The house is located on the main road making it hard to see oncoming traffic. (2) There is a house next door under construction. Luckily for us, they didn't work on it much the days we were there.

Overall -- Great place and would stay here again!

Beautiful Home, View and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from 10 incredible days at My Blue Heaven. This home is lovely, clean and well appointed. Comfortable beds and furniture too! Seems like we spent most of our time on the porch each morning and evening - the view is spectacular. Greg was a pleasure to work with and we thank them for letting us enjoy their beautiful villa. I highly recommend this Villa for either a family or two couples. It's in the perfect location between the airport and Georgetown. We've stayed at several properties on Tar Bay and this one was, by far, our favorite. We look forward to a future return!

Wow!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so comfortable at My Blue Heaven! The house was great, the beach was wonderful, the location was perfect. We especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, the extra bug spray and sunscreen, and the floaties the grandkids played with in the waves. Thank you for offering such an amazing place to use as home base while visiting the island!
