Located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Great Exuma and only an 8 minute drive from the Georgetown International Airport. It is central to all activities on the island but still on a very private stretch of beach.

Many direct flights from Toronto (3hrs), Miami (1 hour), Atlanta ( 2 hrs) and Nassau (35min)serve this carefree, casual and quaint island.

Exuma provides a perfect balance of simplicity and amenities for families, executives, couples and friends wanting to escape the stresses of work and everyday life. If you love white sand, pristine waters, surfing, snorkeling, golfing, fishing, scuba diving, boating, fresh fish and friendly people...then you will fall in love with Great Exuma.

The new house offers a 1100 square foot Great Room with lounging, media and dining areas. There are four-500 square foot, King-size master suites with ensuites that include walk in showers, soaking tubs and private toileting areas . The gourmet kitchen offers solid surface counters, double refrigerators, dishwasher, induction cooktop and everything needed for preparing great meals. Nearby restaurants and in-house chef services are also available.

A 1000 square foot wrap around porch, overlooking the beach, provides outdoor living areas next to the sparkling, warm waters of Exuma. This is one of the best beaches in Exuma. No hotels or public beach access permitted along our beach. You are often the only people on the beach but it is central to all island amenities making this location the most convenient on all of Great Exuma.

Within eight minutes of leaving the airport you will be sipping a cool drink on the white sand beach beside the emerald waters of Tar Bay. The bay is protected by a reef a mile away and the sandy bottom and shallow waters are safe for kids. The crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkeling and on a calm day- kayaking is a must. The summer water temperature is 85 degrees.

A short 8 minute drive east you will find the charming and friendly town of Georgetown, capital of this island archipelago of 3800 permanent residents. You will find everything you need for meal and drink preparation, satisfy your urge to shop at the straw market and boutiques and visit interesting historic sites. Order up some fresh Lobster, Grouper, Tuna or Mahi Mahi from the local fisherman and they will deliver it to the house.

This is a low key, laid back island with none of the hustle and bustle of tourist destinations- perfect for a relaxing vacation - Don't expect casinos, fast food restaurants and designer shopping here. The Exumas will offer a vacation where you reconnect with yourself and your family and friends.

Rent a boat, or hire an experienced captain from Minn's boat rentals to explore the clear, calm waters of Elizabeth Harbour. Don't forget to see the crustaceans at Starfish Beach and visit Sand Dollar beach to hunt for these treasures. A freshly made conch salad and cold Kalik beer at or Big D's or Chat and Chill on Stocking Island is a necessity for this boat trip. If boat rental is not an option for you then a water taxi will get you to Stocking island where you can partake in the fun with other sailors, visitors and locals. Have fun with a game of beach volleyball on the sand court , sip an icy Bahama Mama cocktail on a beach chair or feed the domesticated stingrays that hang out looking for food and a stroke on the back.

The love of water is probably the greatest attraction to Exuma. Here you can take your pick of Scubadiving (Dive Exuma), Parasurfing, snorkelling and even surfing on the ocean side of Stocking Island.

Bone-fishing enthusiasts know that Exuma is top-ranked for this sport. There are many charter companies available for hire.

Exuma is like home. Friendly, relaxing and inviting.

FROM TORONTO: Direct flights are available from Toronto on Sundays . Try searching BOTH the Air Canada Vacations website AND the Air Canada website for different pricing options. Availability and pricing is often quite different on each website for the same flight. Expect return flight costs between $380 and $900 depending on the dates. Contact the Owner (Cindy) about how to get the cheapest flights.

Direct Flights to Georgetown (GGT) are also available via Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta and Nassau with the large airlines. Return flight costs can vary from $200 to $500. If you fly into Nassau then there are at least 5 daily flights between Nassau and Exuma (Georgetown GGT) available with SkyBahamas or Bahamas Air at a cost of approximately $100 each way.

About Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc.

Our family fell head over heels in love for the Exumas because it provided a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Exuma offers friendly people and quaint lifestyle that lets you 'chill out'. There are no shopping malls, fast food chains, cruise ships, or stop lights. Exuma has the perfect balance of things to do and see, restaurants, gift shops, sports and an abundance of times when you will feel like doing nothing.

Our first vacation to Exuma was the best vacation we had ever had. We returned refreshed and rejuvenated.

We feel fortunate that we can offer guests this wonderful island home.

Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. purchased this house in 2012

Why Cindy Zahoruk and Luc Lacroix, Great Exuma Escape Inc. chose Bahamas

This property has a perfect location because it is only 8 minutes from the airport. After the stress of flying you breeze through the Georgetown airport, walk 50 paces to pick up your rental car and within an 8 minute drive you are relaxing on the porch, with a cold drink. Don't worry the airplanes are not a disturbance as there are only a handful of flights per day.

The 3 hour flight from Toronto is non-stop with Air Canada (search Air Canada Vacation) on Sundays and Thursdays (Winter). There are direct flights also from Atlanta (Delta), Nassau and Miami.

The house is centrally located on the island, close to shopping in Georgetown, restaurants and Sandals golf course.

Did we mention that it is on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach you will ever encounter. With water so clear and warm and of the colour blue that you will never forget.

What makes this house unique

We designed this house to be perfect for larger groups. Whether it is 2 families with kids, 4 couples, or parents, grandparents and grandchildren. It is large and spacious, has an enourmous Great room, wrap around porch, comfortable furniture and all of the things you would need to make wonderful meals, be entertained, relax, conduct business (if you must) and simply feel like you are at home.

over the top perfect house and beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing in design , content and organization. everything you could want is here and more. The finishes , furniture , appliances , bathrooms are all tops. the owners are very organized and helpful and they have great staff on the ground in Exuma. The location is fabulous. We have been to this beach 3 times over the past 4 years at a different house each time but this house is by far the best. We were there for 2 full weeks in February 2017 and loved every minute. We did not do any of the excursions or other off-site activities most folks do because this beach and house are so amazing that we just relaxed , swam , snorkelled and ate there. The kitchen is a cook's dream and the large gas bar b que is great . There are 2 nice corals at the beach for snorkelling with plenty of tropical fish to watch all within a couple hundred yards of the house. The beach and water are so amazing. the beach and sea bottom are smooth , hard packed sand so lovely to walk on and swim in. The only sad part was leaving but the memories are great.

I just keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this idyllic tropical island paradise three years in a row. What more need to be said. The house is beyond perfect and the ocean off the patio is a serene, clean, safe, warm, calm pool built by nature. The island is gentle, English-speaking and friendly; the seafood grand. What more needs to be said. Entirely Fabulous.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

The first breath taking sight is the colour of the water!!! Amazingly beautiful. The house is most inviting with its beautiful views of the beach and sunrises makes it a joy to wake up to each and every morning.The accommodations are so comfortable and spacious and state of the art kitchen makes it a joy to cook in. The walks on the beach are private and peaceful at anytime of day.The day excursions can keep everyone busy all day if thats what you want to do. I personally just loved chat N chilling with my girlfriends and drinking Mama bahamas on the beach. Excellent Holiday Thank you Cindy for sharing your piece of heaven.

Cheers Carolyn

Blown away...perfect house, beach, water!

  • 5 of 5

We were all completely blown away by Nemo House. We’ve rented homes in the West Indies, North Carolina and Ireland for years, all very cool and upscale places, but Nemo House really has something special. Excellent design, so well appointed, a fabulous kitchen — we’ve never seen such a well stocked kitchen. What a beach, too.

The house is perfect for two families traveling kids (teenagers, in our case) because there are two identical huge and very well appointed master bedrooms, each with a fabulous master bath and beach views. The two other bedrooms are also nearly identical, also well appointed and have wonderful large private baths. On top of these wonderful retreats, the spacious great room is anchored by a gigantic chefs kitchen replete with two very large stainless refrigerators and a beautiful custom eat-in counter spanning the full width of the room. No appliance or kitchen gadget has been forgotten in stocking this magnificent kitchen.

The house walks out into one of the most pristine, private and long white powder sand beaches in the Exumas, ideal for long morning or sunset walks. You can stare at the aqua blue clear water from the full width covered porch or beach chairs that come with the house (along with ocean kayaks). This house offers everey amenity -- convenience to town, privacy, solitude and fun.

I want to make a special mention of Travis, who met us at the airport, stocked the fridge and pantry and saw us on our way. He was a hit with our kids and with us as well. I talked with him for some time — he seems like a really good person and I feel his extra efforts and very positive attitude deserve special mention. He really cared about making sure we had a great time on his home island.

We loved eating at Santana’s and Shirley’s. The island is just great, and the water now wins the best and bluest prize, as does the sand for being the softest

When our guests appreciate the beauty and solitude of the island it makes us feel that we have done our job in "sharing the joy"about our island life. Exuma is a special secret that we love to share! We hope you return. Cindy and Luc

Idyllic Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors of Nemo House and will continue to go back year after year. The location, convenience, safety, house amenities, privacy and beach keep calling us back. We travel with our all ages in our family; 2 small children to a teen and very active young adults. This villa and location has something for everyone of us. Can't wait to come back! Cindy and Luc are always available to answer questions and make suggestions. Our property manager, Esther, is professional and accommodating. A must is to book Sugar adventures for a day boat trip.

Rejuvenating and Memorable

  • 5 of 5

The incredibly clear water (nothing to bite you) and fine white sand beach right outside the front door is so perfect, not much else is needed. But the house is also grand, completely clean, modern and equipped - including good WIFI, HUGE Fridge, double kitchen sinks, induction cooktop, ceiling fans everywhere, large bathrooms, sporting equipment, books, games and even DVDs. It's a home and feels like one. Finish the glass of wine; put the book down; walk the empty beach before cooking up some local lobster for dinner. Loved it!

Great Exuma is an island of simplicity and solitude and the colour of the water around this picturesque Bahamian island is unlike any other.

Your stay at Nemo house in Great Exuma will be a relaxing one. You can watch the kids play on the child safe beach while you enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch. In the evenings enjoy the calming sound of the surf nearby while you enjoy a freshly caught lobster dinner, or go to a local restaurant 'Rake and Scrape' or the Fish Fry for some local food, music and entertainment.

The clear, warm waters provide excellent fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. On a calm day you can wade into the shallow, white sand bottom waters and on a windy day the waves are high enough for surfing off Stocking island. Nearby Georgetown offers boat rentals, boat guides, grocery and liquor stores as well as restaurants and shops. A short 15 minute drive west to Sandals Emerald Bay resort will bring you to the Spa at Sandals and the Greg Norman designed golf course.

Georgetown International Airport welcomes many direct flights from Toronto (3 hours), Nassau (35Min), Miami (1 hour) and Atlanta (2 hours)
