Overview

About the property

6B, 6 1/2 Bath, Boat Slot, Steps From The Beach

www.marinahouseexuma.com

Marina House is a stunning new home situated on nearly half an acre overlooking the private marina. Completed in late 2015 with beautiful Bahamian architectural elements, the Marina House has 6 bedrooms, 6 1/2 bathrooms, private pool and boat slip, and is just steps from a gorgeous beach. In just minutes, you can cruise through Moriah Harbour, frolic on the shores of The Cut Beach, or test your skills in the bonefishing flats past the Ferry bridge (Little Exuma) . There are countless extraordinary beaches, sandbanks and coves in the area yet it is also easy to boat right into Georgetown or Chat N’ Chill on Stocking Island.

The home is ideal for a large family, an intimate corporate retreat, or sports/yoga retreat as the spacious and open floor plans allows for groups to comfortably socialize yet its design provides plenty of privacy. There are two master bedrooms with king size beds, two guest rooms with king size beds (cottage), one bedroom with two full beds, and one bedroom with bunk beds. Marina House is outfitted for large groups so it features double refrigerators, double dishwashers, central A/C, ice machine, several lounge areas, and an outdoor pergola dining area for 12. The home is well appointed so rest assured we have all of the flatware, beach towels, linens, and kitchen gadgets you may need.

Hand line fishing with the kids, starry nights looking at the sky at the end of the dock, toes dragging in the water. Stay in or go out. Paddle-board everywhere and anywhere. The possibilities are endless.

About Analia Whitehead

We are a Bahamian family! We built the Marina House as a way to enjoy this spectacular place and have never regretted our decision for one second. All our guests love the spot from the moment the enter the house.

Analia Whitehead purchased this house in 2015

Why Analia Whitehead chose World

Its part of a fabulous development, Foster Hill, where Exuma can be enjoyed how it should be, in comfort but close to nature.

What makes this house unique

Its closeness to the water, its privacy, its quietness. Marina House encompasses luxury and comfort, while still embracing the laid back lifestyle of Exuma, napping on the deck watching friends and family jumping of the dock, hand-line fishing, paddle boarding or snorkeling, at night being able to whip up a gourmet style meal in the fully loaded kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the house and the Exumas. Actually, the photos of the house on the websites do not even come close to illustrating how beautiful, charming and well put together the is. The marina is not only a great place to anchor the Boston Whalers, but a great place for the kids to try out paddle boarding. The gazebo by the beach was just right to enjoy a late afternoon drink.



As for Exuma itself, we found the island to be relaxed and the people as friendly as anywhere else. As you know, their is very little infrastructure, but that is part of its charm. I have only seen water like the one I saw surrounding the Exumas in Bora Bora. Just beautiful.



If I have a suggestion is that maybe you need to fumigate a little more often, but I suspect its and uphill battle. Also, the hot water runs out very quickly.

Beautiful and Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

July 14-22, 2018

Our family takes an annual vacation every year. This year we chose to go the Exumas. We had never been to the Bahamas before, but we always do a beach vacation. We were so happy with the Marina House. The house is even so much better in person than the pictures. We had 8 people (4 adults, 4 kids)—we had more than enough room to spread out and even have alone time. Our private beach was by far the best part of this house. My daughters (11 and 13 years old kayaked and paddleboarded all day long. We saw many different types of sea creatures that kept them excited. We did a few day trips out to other beaches and islands, but honestly we had our most relaxing days at the Marina House.

Martin and Analia took care of anything we needed and response time was instant. We would definitely be back to the Exumas and this house without a doubt. We made wonderful family memories.

Thank you,

The Edwards Family

BEST. VACATION. EVER

  • 5 of 5

My family (12 of us in all) truly enjoyed our week at The Marina House in Exuma. The house was absolutely amazing and set up perfectly for a large family / group like we were. The house had everything you could imagine - and more! The pool, dock, private beach could have not been more perfect. We all had a blast and were never board. Martin, the caretaker, was very responsive in any need we had. Analia helped us set up our private chef - which was truly unbelievable. Analia even checked in on us several times during our stay. There are not enough words to say how fabulous this house is. This is truly the first house we cannot get back to fast enough. Cannot wait for our next stay at The Marina House!

The marina house far exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. And it is very spacious. Our group of 11 (4 adults and 7 adventurous kids) had tons of space! The kitchen is well equipped with 2 refrigerators, 1 big freezer and an ice maker. Plus, lots of dishes and utensils.

The location of the house is also unique, in that it has a private beach, its own pool and a boat dock right out back. We took advantage of the boat that could be rented with the house and we used it 5 days. We saw every type of sea creature imaginable! Sea turtles, starfish, sharks, sting rays, dolphins, jelly fish, sea cucumbers, puffer fish, barracuda, grouper, lobster, conch, huge lizards and swimming pigs! We did a day trip to staniel cay on a larger boat and it was well worth it! There are many good casual beach restaurants that can be reached by boat from the house - like chat n chill, st. Francis, rusty anchor, Santana's and blu at the exuma yacht club.

All in all, this trip far exceeded our expectations and we hope to be back to this exact same house!

An absolutely stunning vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Marina House is going to make it difficult for me to rent almost any other house in the Caribbean.

The pictures don't really do the home and the property justice (and they are good photos).

We were a party of 9 people and we were incredibly comfortable. There was a ton of privacy

This house is so well appointed...it has everything you need. If you do need something, the staff who take care of you during your stay are just a phone call away and are very attentive.

The private beach is amazing. We spent alot of time enjoying the ocean or just relaxing by the very nice pool.

We also rented the owner's 20 foot Boston Whaler. It was great to get out on the ocean for a few hours and explore the various cays...be careful though...the water is quite shallow at low tide and it can be quite easy to get the boat stuck in the sand. Of course, getting it out is not hard because the water is often only 3-4 feet deep.

All in all, the best Vacation home rental experience I've ever had. If you are traveling with a large party and you are looking for a "peace and quiet" type of holiday experience, this is perfect...

Kudos to Analia and her family on having built such an outstanding home.

Drive down to Tropic of Cancer to beach to see something extraordinary. Go snorkeling, diving, swim in the harbour you might even bump into a dolphin. Try Regatta season where you will see the handcrafted sloops in action. Or just sit in the warm wind under the gazebo and enjoy the scenery!!
