Overview

About the property

3 Bdrm, 2 Bath, 2-story, Ocean View Property; 2000 Sq Ft

The Orange House is located 20 miles East of George Town on Little Exuma. The large upstairs veranda overlooks the most beautiful beach in the Bahamas, the Tropic of Cancer Beach. The one and a half mile stretch of beach is great for walking, swimming or just lounging as it is never crowded. Kayaks are available to venture out to turtle rock and other areas. The house sleeps up to six people and is fully equipped with everything you need except food and bathing suits. This is a very safe and quiet environment that is off the beaten path. Absolute paradise! You are going to come to Tropic of Cancer Beach for a day or two and eat at Santanas a couple of times anyway. They are MUST DO on Exuma. Might as well stay here. You will be glad you did! View details below for local contacts.

The little orange house is a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The little orange house is a great house! Everything about the rental process went great. The owners responded promptly when we have questions. The house is located on Tropic of Cancer beach which has to be absolutely one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We were there for our son's wedding. It was a beach wedding, and absolutely the most beautiful setting you can imagine for a very beautiful event.

The house was well furnished absolutely spotless. Everything went really well. There is some house construction across the street in front of the house, but you still have a great view of the Tropic of Cancer beach and some of the most beautiful water I've ever seen.

The typical reaction for most of the people that were there for the first time for the wedding after seeing the beautiful water and a fantastic beach is" I will be back! We feel the same. "There's plenty to do on the island if you aren't satisfied with just spending some beach time . That was our primary activity. We did take a boat ride. We did enjoy several of the restaurants in the area. We found the island people to be very friendly and outgoing. if you're going to be spending any time at all I think you want to rent a car. We will definitely be back and we would definitely consider renting the orange house again it was a wonderful experience.

Great house on an amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

Tropic of Cancer Beach is blessed with fine, powdery, white sand and calm, clear waters. The Orange House is less than 30 seconds from this beach in a quiet little neighborhood. The owners are both very responsive and easy to work with. The house was clean, well organized and real a joy to stay in. It served our needs perfectly and we enjoyed our stay immensely! Many thanks!

Perfect house on a perfect beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the orange house. It was fully equipped, not missing a thing. The location being on the most beautiful beach....that says it all. We had fun exploring the island. We would definitely go back.

The owners are amazing at answering any questions you have, they responded instantly every time.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, my sister, her husband & I) thoroughly enjoyed Exuma. And we were very happy with our “home base”, the Orange House. Very comfortable accommodations - beds, showers, kitchen, kayaks, beach chairs, coolers, deck furniture, ... Owners communicate quickly, contact person on island very friendly & knowledgeable. We hope we’re invited to return!

Property information a bit deceiving due to recent construction

  • 2 of 5

We were very unlucky with our stay, mostly due to the effects of extreme weather and being in that house. We ended up being rained in most days, it got so bad we could not leave Little Exuma due to massive flooding and had to pay an arm and a leg to leave the island on Theo Gray's school bus.

I think it's important to mention a few things:

1) There is construction occurring in between the Orange House and the Tropic of Cancer beach. We were awoken most mornings to the sounds of saws or concrete trucks and workers. There certainly will not be as nice of a view once construction is finished. And it wasn't very relaxing while we were there.

2) Water service is directly tied to power. If you don't have power, you don't have water. We had a power outage, on average, 6 hours a day. Stock up on water, granola bars, etc. Not exactly the price point I expected for glamping.

3) The local caretaker is on island time, so even when we reported part of the ceiling (very small piece, size of a nerf football) to have collapsed on us at the dinner table, he didn't show up when we were there. I would suspect there is a lot of water damage in the house. I had to email the owners to let them know. Not really a good sign about communication, there's probably a lot the owners are unaware of.

4) I don't know what kind of septic they have, but when it's hot and you go upstairs to the second floor apartment (you need to go outside to get there, which is not fun in rain/lightning) you are acutely aware that there is raw sewage on the property.

A lot of this is due to the effects of extreme weather, but overall I feel that their post needs to be updated to reflect construction and that everyone who books this should be aware that once you get on Little Exuma - you are on your own. Bring a lot of granola bars and other non-perishable food in your check in. Don't fly in on a Sunday (everything is closed). When you do fly in, make sure it's in the morning or afternoon and go directly to one of the markets and ensure you have enough food that won't spoil for the duration of your stay and more fresh water than you think you need.

Owner's Response: Sorry your vacation was a rainy one. Flooding and power outage was island wide, not just the Orange House. The island has never experienced such an overnight deluge, even with hurricanes tracking close by. Water was chest high in the roads with cell phone service down also. The property manager couldn't leave his own house much less make it to you. My wife and I had a similar weather experience while on vacation. We certainly didn't blame the house or the island, nor did we write an unfairly bad review.

Owner's Response: January, historically, is one of Exumas driest months. I guess you just never know about the weather.

The main attraction is the Tropic of Cancer Beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever find. Close proximity to restaurants/bars. Ferry to Stocking Island for food, drinks and a day's adventure very much worth your time. The house is a 1 minute walk to the Tropic of Cancer Beach. The nearest village is Williams Town home of Santana's Grill Pit and The Tropic Breeze where you can have food and drinks. Both are within 10 minutes. Bone fish within five miles. Bone fishing is big business in Exuma and there are plenty of local fishermen who can take you out.

Further up the coast is the main town of GeorgeTown,where you can rent boats, schedule private charters, visit the local straw market for unique souvenirs and gifts. There is the fish fry just out side of Georgetown offering a wide variety of local cuisine and music. Check out our Facebook page, 'Orange House, Little Exuma' for addition information.
