They get up early, Kayak out to the shallow banks no more than 50 yards (meters) from our dock. As with most fishermen they put them back into the water after a catch and photograph.

For a Bone Fishing Guide we recommend Martin Clarke 1242 477 6251.

Bone Fishing License: These can be obtained on line from the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries or the Administrator's Office in Town.

A scooter can be rented in town at $40/day.

Sailing Sunfish: Sailing on the clear blue warm waters of the Bahamas is exhilarating and yet relaxing for those coming from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is good to be competitive with neighbours and their Sunfish. We now have six Sunfish owners on our strip and are in the process of forming a sailing club. Watch this space for more detail. We even offer to learners free instruction to sail, weather permitting.

Boston Whaler: The 17'0' Boston Whaler, has been improved, it is old and is for use on the south side of the island by our visitors only, subject to availability.

However we can do a discounted price of $125/day for a week of consecutive days. Take it on a trailer, use the Toyota and launch it where you will.

There are two and the cost to use the Nissan March is $60/day the Toyota Surf suv with roof rack and tow bar is $70/day. In the event you elect to hire a vehicle privately we will arrange to meet you in town on your first day.

Precautions: Visitors must be mindful that anywhere in the tropics, there will be nasty insects around. On Exuma the most prolific are the mosquito and the 'no-see-ums'. Both of these can give you, nice fresh meat to this area, a nasty bite, that is all BUT there is no need for this to happen if you take precautions.

They usually come out an hour before and after sunrise and sunset. Second, they cannot withstand a breeze. All the windows and external doors have fly screens. During the day, especially with children in the family, in and out all the time these insects will get inside the house. You will be well advised to have a room fly spray available for the interior of the house before you retire. Not much is needed just a quick squirt in each high corner of the room should be sufficient. Let us know if you are inconvenienced more than this.

Try picking a few sprigs of Sage from the garden, put them in a glass of water beside your bed. This will help to keep them away. You will be surprised.

Medical facilities: Opened in March 2016 we have our own 32 bed, state of the art hospital, fully staffed, equipped and offering facilities rated among the best in the Caribbean to all residents.

Location: When you arrive at the Immigration counter at the airport: Say to the Officer, you are staying with 'Sharon Wright', most of them know me, at 007 Sea Breeze Drive Bahama Sound 11 West, telephone # 357 3112

Tipping: Most Restaurants and Hotels will include 15% on their bills for service charge.

Tour Guides and Taxis expect a gratuity to be given according to the service received. 15% = good service.

Home Owners do not ask for or include any tipping but it is always nice to receive.

The Maids clear the left over food from the fridge as their tip

As you depart the Customs Hall, you will be greeted by the Taxi Drivers Union Representative, if you ask them for Sharon, they will know where we are waiting.

About Sharon Wright

We are a Bahamian/British management organisation and trade under the heading of The Wright Partnership, the principals originate, one from here in the Bahamas and the other from England. He was a 'left over' from a Government contract more than 27 years ago. We both live on Gt. Exuma not more than a 1/4 mile from the cottage and either of us are readily available to service your needs at short notice 24/7.

Sharon Wright purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Sharon Wright chose Exuma

The cottage, '007 Beach House' was built in 2007 on lot # C12007, to a design we evolved where the main theme was to be 'Bahamian' in concept and provide sea views from all habitable rooms. It was built to a Budget and the final cost was within a few $'s of the Budget figure. It is designed and built to withstand hurricane force winds and has been tested by Hurricanes Irene 2011 and Isaac 2012 and a few Tropical Storms since.

If you like to holiday here regularly, we will be please to design and construct your second home to a budget to suit you and yes look after it for you while you are away. Ask John about this service when you arrive.

Great Exuma is the most naturally protected island in The Bahamas. Surrounded by smaller islands that take the brunt of any storm. The waters are the most colourful and ideal for sailing/cruising/fishing/swimming/diving/snorkelling.

There is a protective sea wall on the water front and around the landscaped garden. It is upon this wall that one side of the cottage is founded.

On the North side of the Island we have lots for sale. Please ask for details. When you arrive and depart at the airport, you will pass the lots on the way to George Town/Airport.

What makes this cottage unique

There are fascinating reasons why this site was selected. The original site was at a very low level and the Spring High Water mark came well up into the site. By trimming the, sea facing rock front, it was possible to create a sheltered swimming area and the spoil was used to fill behind the sea defense wall. It is upon this rock fill, that the landscaping has been established.

Initially a rock garden was formed., Later, between the rocks Sedge grass was planted, stone paths were laid down, Natural beach plants and succulents came along including Mangrove.

Now you will find established plants and trees producing tropical fruit and vegetables within 40'0' (12m) of the Ocean. Trees and bushes include: Tamarind, Pomegranate, Sugar Apple, Guava, Paw Paw or Papaya, Coco Nut, both black and white Coco Plumbs, Sea Grapes and Darling Plumbs Tangerine and Limes.

Vegetables and herbs include: Bird peppers, Basil, Mint, Rosemary, Pea Nuts, Asparagus, Granny Fingers or Okra, Pride of Barbados is a thorny pretty flowering tree yet the seeds are a good substitute for garden peas.

Flowers include: Aloe Vera, Spider Lillies, Day Lillies, Amaryllis Agapanthus, Periwinkle, Frangapanni, White and Red Hibiscus, 7 day Apple.

Because of this interesting mix we have flying and crawling visitors: A Humming bird visits daily for food (nested in a 7 day apple tree last year), Banana quit (nested on a Guava branch this year), the King Fisher picks up frogs, Osprey will take a fish from the sea whilst in flight, Heron stalk around in the shallows, any amount of fly catchers, yes we have lizards too.

No doubt there is more flora and fauna, not mentioned here.

Above everything else, it is the view in the morning either from the Bedrooms or the Living/Dining Area/Kitchen.........absolutely majestic!

Thank you John (and Sharon) for the lovely rental. Your house is the perfect size for the 4 of us. Just wonderful to be on the water, and wake up every morning to a beautiful peaceful sunrise, and feel at home, and not in a hotel. Perfect access to the bonefish flats out front, and plenty else to do as well. Kids enjoyed the swimming, and snorkeling and so on. We saw lots of fish just out front, and you are never alone on the flats. Lemon sharks, crabs, turtles, barracuda, spiny Atlantic lobster, and conch and of course the wily bonefish.

The house had everything we needed, but not too much either. We especially liked the lack of hassles involved, and have rated it 5 stars, even though a few things didn't go as expected, but Hey Mon, that is island life. Relax and enjoy it! We sure did. Thanks again. We hope to come back.

Beautiful Exuma

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in Exuma!

Thank you Sharon and John for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back next year if the Gods allow.

John picked us up from the airport and took us to the beach house which had a stocked fridge(at our request). He was also available to take us into town a few days later to stock up on some supplies and then back to the airport for our departure. The house was very well appointed, clean and very comfortable. You couldn't have asked for a better view. The location is absolutely perfect. We made use of the kayaks everyday and took full advantage of the beautiful location. In fact, we really only left to go into town for supplies. Shame we did not get to meet Sharon in person. Thank you both once again for your hospitality. Look forward to seeing you next year.

Regards

Peter

Great value, great property

  • 4 of 5

We rented the beach house and a car for ten days. We enjoyed the property and exploring Exuma at our own pace. John and Sharon were great hosts. Don't miss Santana's on Little Exuma.

Do enquirer about insurance on the car if renting that is part of your plan. Other than that, great property for independent travelers.

Great, relaxing stay in Exuma.

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 14 day stay at John and Sharon's Beach House and the Boat House with our family. We had a wonderful time! The view from the house or from the dock were always stellar. The water just outside the door was equally amazing. We were lucky to get bright sunny days everyday except for one when a tropical storm blew though. We used the kayaks daily and the boat on one occasion for deeper exploration. We also rented a car from them and it all worked out quite easily. John was a gracious host who helped when asked and never bothered. The Beach House is pretty, simple, clean and very comfortable. The boat house is a bit more rustic but also very clean and comfortable and perfect for our son and his new fiancé. There were no complaints at all from anyone in the family. Be sure to get to Jolly Hall beach and Tropic of Cancer beach. We would love to come back soon. Caught bonefish when the tides were right. Be forewarned that it is quiet place. No wild bars or clubs. Just beautiful island scenery in your lap everyday.

Beautiful Home&View, Horrible business dealing!

  • 1 of 5

I contacted John on Jan25th and sent the payment in full. We rented the boat house for one night, and booked the main house for the remaining four nights.

Ten days before our trip, I was contacted and told they double booked the boat house(odd since John uses Sharon's email too), and asked would I be willing to stay at a relative's beach house for one night. I made it clear that if it was a house near the water, it would be fine.

John picked us up at the airport on time, and we started driving. THIS is when he informs us that the relative's house is also not available for us either and he'll put us in a hotel for our first night. He pulls up to Marshall's which shares its small parking lot with a busy(and only) gas station on the island. My wife and I were not happy. It was a run down place, did not offer anything but a bed and refrigerator. The parking lot is filled with people shouting, car horns sounding, and loiterers. We brought down an entire checked bag of food to cook bc of our dietary restrictions!

After much talking, and my wife crying, he booked us a room at Peace&Plenty Hotel...a bit nicer, again, no kitchen. John said that since he messed up, he would cover the first night for us. Once assuring me, and then assuring my wife and I in the hotel room. Our night there was okay, other than young girls in the other room screaming being drunkards until 3am.

The next day we got his car rental. I spoke with him again while exchanging seats and mentioned I will use our credit (1nt boat house+cleaning fee) to rent the vehicle. He assured me that "yes, you have credit with us, we'll sort it out at the end"

We had a marvelous stay.

Before our trip back to the airport, I told my wife to record our convo, so I can ask him about our security deposit. When I did, he was a bit stunned and said "well, I thought the car rental and sec deposit cancelled" we argued the entire ride. He said it'll take 3 weeks but I wasn't leaving without it. At the airport he called Sharon and finally pulled out an envelope which conveniently had the full security deposit amount in it and handed it over. My wife was a crying mess. Otherwise, TERRIFIC TRIP! BEAUTIFUL ISLAND! Gorgeous house :)

Sorry for yelling John, we may have been rude to you but we prefer honesty, especially after being yanked around due to your double booking fault and lies. Look forward to you being professional and insulting again, Cheerio!

The Waterfront Cottage '007 Beach House', is located at Lot C12007 Sea Breeze Drive, in the Bahama Sound 11 West Subdivision of Great Exuma, in the Bahamas. It is in a quiet location on the southern waterfront of Great Exuma island.

Great. Exuma is the largest island in the 365 chain of islands comprising Exuma.

The Bahamas is in the Atlantic Ocean but borders the North Eastern side of the Caribbean Sea. It has a temperate climate with temperatures between 55F (10C) in the winter and rises to the 90's F (32C) in the summer.

Shopping 3 miles. There is at least one of most types of shop in Town.

End of March - Cruiser Sail Boat Regatta. Last week in April - National Native Sloop Regatta. This is high season. Ask for rental rates for this period. November - Yuma Arts festival.
