About Dean Hiebert

We live in Oakville, Ontario with our daughter and two sons. We all love the Caribbean and escaping winter whenever we can. With all our kids very active in sports and our two boys in hockey everyday it is tough to get away but when we do, we head down to our piece of paradise in Exuma!

Dean Hiebert purchased this estate in 2015

Why Dean Hiebert chose Forbes Hill

For several years we travelled throughout the islands looking for the best island we could find to build our dream home. After exploring many places we fell in love with Exuma. The people, climate and the ocean are simply amazing. We had never been anywhere world where the sand was so soft and the ocean so bright blue. After purchasing the land we spent some time getting our drawings together and in December 2015, Beachwood Estate was completed!

What makes this estate unique

With only a few homes on this beach it is unlikely you will see anyone else during your stay. The sand has a gentle slope into the ocean and there is a natural cove at the west end that has created a shallow pool perfect for children. Whether it is relaxing by the infinity pool, cooking up lobster in the kitchen, or hanging out on the beach...Beachwood will exceed your expectations!

Visit stocking island, the swimming pigs, sandy cay or numerous other postcard locations. Beachwood is one of the most luxurious homes on the island where you will be spoiled in paradise! We also own Greystone, which is another amazing house just up the beach if you want to book a large group and need a second house. Click property 4257422 on the homeaway seach to see the other home

My family had the most amazing week at Beachwood. It was our first trip to The Exuma’s - we could not have imagined how beautiful it would be and how perfect the house would be for us. The house is gorgeous, it had everything we needed and with 9 adults and we had plenty of room and we felt so at home here. We spent the majority of our time at the pool and the stunning beaches right on our door step. Judy organized an all day boat trip to see many of the local attractions - it was a great day, with lots of wonderful memories, we all especially enjoyed snorkeling at The Thunderball Grotto. Thank you Dean, Judy and staff - everything was perfect. We day dream about coming back soon.

The home was beautiful! The view when you wake up in the morning is something you won't want to leave.

This is a magical place. The house is spectacular....the view, water, pool and beach are amazing, the staff helpful and friendly. This was a perfect place for an amazing family vacation. Judy arranged for our rental cars, transportation and anything else we needed, she is a gem. Judy also cooked for us several nights and it was just wonderful. We did our own cooking for breakfast and lunch and had several wonderful dinners out. The kitchen is great but needs some new pans.

We had 4 of our adult children and 5 of our 7 grandchildren with us. We did a wonderful day tour to swim with the pigs, see the area, snorkel, swim with sea turtles and sharks! Judy arranged it and it was perfect. We also had Judy arrange a fishing trip, although it was a fun day, I would recommend using one of the professional fishing guides if you want to do serious fishing.

The house has kayaks, chairs and snorkel equipment and we had so much fun taking them around to snorkel and explore. Every afternoon a family of dolphin showed up right off the beach and we all swam and snorkeled with them, it was an experience of a lifetime.

I must add that we were supposed to take this trip a year ago and at the time it was scheduled our 5 year old Grandson was diagnosed with Leukemia. Our family was devastated and we canceled the trip. Dean was so kind to allow us to transfer our deposit to another week the following year! Our Grandson is still in treatment so his family could not make the trip, we missed them terribly and plan return when they can join us as well.

We have traveled all over the world, the caribbean, Tahiti, south America, Central America, we have NEVER seen such beautiful water! I recommend this place 100% and can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Hi Maggie! Thanks so much for writing such a great review and so happy that you had such a great time. With all the stress of your grandson, I was so hoping you would have a relaxing time and great vacation. Really hoping for a quick recovery for him and when he is ready to travel, I'll be sure to look after you when you can make it back! Thanks again! (p.s.) two entire sets of pots and pans are arriving on the boat today...not sure how they go missing but lots there when you can make it back!

Doesn't get any better!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just a magical place on the best part of the island. If you want privacy, comfort and a beach house that has everything you need on one floor with huge soaring views, this is the one. We loved the expansive views of the islands dotting the landscape, the great pool and pool deck and a house that just was so comfortable, clean and functional. The staff looked after everything. By far the best of the best! We will be back!

Beachwood - Little Exuma, Bahamas

  • 4 of 5

Home is beautifully decorated with a million-dollar view. Private and very isolated (grocery store 25 minutes away). Rental would have been perfect with more attention to detail prior to and during stay. Examples include: overall cleanliness of home including moldy shower curtain and dirty floors in front bath (we had to replace shower curtain); no shampoo/soap in master bath; lights that didn't work in master bedroom; rickety/dirty grill with no grill brush (while we noticed a new grill was in a box in storage area); no laundry detergent; dryer full of towels/sheets we had to fold upon our arrival; no pot-holders in kitchen; no cleaning supplies for kitchen; trash that piled up in the bin outside with literally thousand of flies. Additionally, one of the cars we rented from the property manager had grinding brakes and would not start 75% of time unless battery cables were "jiggled". For a luxury rental we expected all the details to be taken care of prior to our arrival. Additionally, the property manager was on vacation for 2.5 days during our 7 day stay so during that time we had no one to contact with issues. If you are willing to overlook these types of issues it is a great rental if you are looking for privacy in a beautiful home with a spectacular view. AHF (May 2018)

Owner's Response: PLEASE READ THIS! After over 100 guests you are bound to get one like this! We strive for the best experience and always deliver. This guest arrived way before they check in time after other guests had just left. The staff were busy cleaning up garbage (which is why there was garbage in the bin), Doing laundry (which is why there was laundry in the dryer) cleaning up the bathrooms (which is why there was soap on the shower curtain), putting out fresh laundry detergent as the prior guests used it (which is why the laundry detergent hadn't been replenished) and cleaning the bbq. We have checkin at a set time so we have time to do this and when guests arrive early we try to do all we can but practically, you need time to complete this. This guest showed up before the scheduled time when work was not completed and she didn't like that things weren't completed even though the other guests had just left. She was the first renters our guests have every complained about. Typically our guests love Judy and her staff and stay friends on facebook ext long after they have left the island and almost all our guests are repeat visitors. I don't rent cars so I have no idea why she would review a car rental on our site but the just shows everyone the type of person we were dealing with. I hope you understand in the home rental business you will get a person that is just difficult and never happy no matter how hard you try and please them....we are grateful that this is extremely rare but we just had our first one like that. Please look at the other 58 reviews and hopefully you see through this one!

The Exumas are a collections of small islands with the two main islands, Great and Little Exuma being the largest. They are connected by a bridge with Georgetown being the capital. There are banks, restaurants, stores and endless beaches to explore. Pristine and unspoiled beaches right at your front doors as well as numerous Cays to explore. Exuma is the home to many celebrities due to the safety, beauty and privacy. There isn't water as blue and beautiful as Exuma anywhere in the world!
