Overview

About the property

2 bed, 2 bath with panoramic waterfront view on a quiet private beach

Welcome to the Queen Of Harts!

Exuma's Best Kept Secret

Airport Code: (GGT) Georgetown

If you are looking for peace & quiet on a secluded area of a small island with the most beautiful and serene view of clear blue & turquoise water within a 15-yard walk from the house with complete privacy... THIS IS IT!

No words or pictures can fully explain the awesome feeling and experience that you will have once you pull up to the driveway of this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home located on the very NW corner of this Exuma island. The QOH is literally the second to last home on the tip of the island.

QOH features it's own private beach directly in front of the house. It takes about 15 seconds to walk from the front porch until you can see your feet underneath the clear blue water in the pinkish sand. You have this to yourself. There is nobody else around to bother you.

QOH has a queen bedroom in the master bedroom with its own master bathroom. The second bedroom has a full-size bed and a twin bed with can sleep three people comfortably. The second bathroom is in the hallway beside the bedroom.

The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare a delicious dinner if you'd like.

It has all the amenities that most people have currently in their home. There is a water dispenser with multiple extra large 5 gallon containers for drinking purposes.

Outside there is a wrap-around porch where you can have breakfast or just relax on the comfortable chairs and listen to the sounds of the beach directly in front of you or watch some of the boats pass by.

There are plenty of restaurants available nearby. Exuma Point & Shoreline are two popular eateries that are practically within walking distance. A little further down are many other places to eat within a 10-15 minute drive. Most restaurants feature fresh food caught directly from the water and are delicious!

There is so much to do on this island while you are there!

One of the favorite attractions are the swimming pigs. One of the cays where these pigs live is literally a 5-minute boat ride across from the Queen Of Harts. Exuma is also home to some of the best snorkeling reefs. There are quite a few nearby the QOH. Many people like to rent a boat a go sight-seeing on their own. There is so much to see including the sunken plane, the Thunderball Grotto, blowholes, underwater caves and starfish. Other attractions to include feeding the iguanas, sting rays and nurse sharks. Jet-skiing, wind-surfing, kayaking are also available for fun.

There are also tours and excursions that will show you all of these attractions.

Upon booking, you will receive a Welcome email with many different places to experience these tours and dining opportunities along with their contact information.

About Kevin & Ghandi

Kevin & Ghandi are married and live in Atlanta, Ga. We have three kids and are both professionals. Ghandi in property management and Kevin owns a marketing firm. Kevin grew up in Virginia and went to college at the University of S. Alabama. Ghandi is originally from Miami, Florida and went to school at Grambling State University. Ghandi's family are all Bahamian and have ties to Exuma and Nassau.

Kevin & Ghandi purchased this house in 2010

Why Kevin & Ghandi chose Exuma

This land was passed down through generations and we finally decided to build the house on it in 2010. Many of our family members live in houses in the near vicinity. It's very quiet and the only neighbor next door is family also.

This is a great place to get away from everything.

What makes this house unique

What makes us fall in love with house is the view from the porch. With the soft breeze constantly blowing on your face and just sitting back listening to the ocean waves, it feels so serene.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is a comfortable normal family home inside, with all the facilities you'd expect, and the location is extraordinary! We'll definitely be back for more!

Piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 4 nights in 3/2018 in order to attend a wedding at the Great Exuma Sandals. The house is about 15 minutes north of Sandals and was perfect for that purpose. It took us around 30-40 mins to get to the house from the airport. You will definitely want to rent a car (taxis are super pricey and hard to come by). This home is great for someone who is looking for something a little off the beaten path.

The beaches in Exuma really blew our mind with super soft white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. The house has an AMAZING private beach, on which we enjoyed lounging and swimming. The owner has now left a couple hammocks, 2 beach umbrellas, and there are a couple of masks, a set of fins, and one snorkel available (although we didn't use them). If you are facing the ocean, walk to the right about 10-15 mins to find Exuma Point Restaurant. If you eat lunch there (get the Grouper Fingers!), then Elvis will take you over to see the pigs for $25/person.

The home was clean and comfortable. There is a water filtration system in the home with plenty of fresh water to drink. There is a blow dryer and an iron available. We will most certainly return to Great Exuma and to this home! Thank you Kevin and Ghandi for the incredible stay!!!

your own private beach

  • 5 of 5

This home is very pretty and well laid out, with beautiful, high quality, comfortable furnishings. As soon as we pulled into the driveway we were wowed by the view. The porch is fabulous. 20 steps to a lovely beach that you have all to yourselves. Nice sandy bottom and gentle waves for swimming. Just enough shade if you want to get out of the sun. Very quiet and secluded. You can walk the beach for miles. 10 minute walk takes you to exuma point bar. 35 minute walk to Shoreline Restaurant. You could even keep walking another 10 minutes to cocoplum beach. Sounds far, but it's an interesting and pretty walk. We enjoyed our stay and Kevin was very accommodating.

A total getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we were looking for. A total getaway, escape from reality, disconnect from real life. I would definitely recommend getting a 4 wheel drive, as the roads have many pot holes....probably from the recent storms. Bring lots of bug spray. Not your typical tourist destination...private private private.

Had a wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was very private and had awesome views. We enjoyed watching the sunrise and listening to the waves every day. You will need a car. One was available from the manager and was waiting for us at the airport. Everyone we met on the island were very friendly. The beaches are beautiful.

The last house on the right... seclusion is absolutely as described.

  • 5 of 5

It was a gorgeous view, water from both sides. The surf is a little rough there for swimming at high tide but was lovely at low tide and when the winds were calm. There is a house next door but we didn't see anyone the entire time. The washer was missing, waiting for a part to arrive but we were offered laundry service from the housekeeper. The house was equipped and even included 3 beach umbrellas someone left behind. There were plenty of beach towels and dishes available. Fresh bottled water was available as well. Great long weekend!
