Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - Oceanfront With Private Waterfront Gazebo

Ocean Breeze is a private short term rental house on a spectacular turquoise bay. Its Location on Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas is 200 miles south of Miami, Florida. Great Exuma is the main Island of a mostly uninhabited, 120-mile long archipelago of 365 cays that stretch southeast from Nassau. The house is nestled on a beautiful, secluded, private road and is used as a weekly rental property for families. The home enjoys a lush privacy that features beautiful Caribbean gardens and has a magical short exotic tropical path that leads to a private iron shore, complete with steps cut into the stone that take you into warm crystal clear sandy bottomed waters. There is a large private gazebo that sits but a few feet away from the sea and has a full view of the water. The snorkeling along this waters edge is phenomenal and chock full of marine life.

The home itself is located on a hill-top with an extraordinary view of Georgetown's Elizabeth Harbour. Sit on the spacious coral stone veranda and watch the boats come and go in the harbour, or enjoy an equally quiet evening counting the shooting stars during the stunning starlit nights. The house is a two bedroom, two-bathroom home furnished in chic tropical decor. It has a master bedroom with a king sized bed, outstanding view of the water, luxury linens and a master bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, luxury linens and garden view with a separate door to outside waterfront path and garden. Enjoy privacy and quiet peaceful still nights with the water lapping and light breezes through the palm trees.

Ocean Breeze is located just a short walk from a liquor and convenience store and the towns only pharmacy, also only a five minute drive to charming Georgetown where you will find the Straw Market, grocery store, banks, government services, boat rentals and much more. There are also many restaurants located around this easily accessible island where you can enjoy the local fare; such as Peas and Rice, Cracked Conch, and Bahamian Spiny Lobster. Don't miss our favorite 'The Weekend Buffet' at Exuma Point where you can experience many of the local delicacies and walk the sun-drenched powder white sand beach for miles. Or head further east to the Tropic of Cancer beach named because the actual tropic line cuts through the heart of this stunning beach; or continue further into Williamstown to where, while filming 'Pirate's of the Caribbean', Johnny Depp and the rest of the cast and crew whiled away many of their free hours a favorite hang out- 'Santana's open air beach bar.' There are so many opportunities to enjoy the sounds and flavors of the Bahamas on this jewel of the Bahamian archipelago. You may also like to take a water taxi to Stocking Island, a five-minute ride, and enjoy a beach day and a Conch salad at Big D's Conch Shack or the “almost world famous” 'Chat and Chill'.

Other fun opportunities abound on this tropical paradise such as snorkeling or diving, day/ half day trips to the hidden treasures of Exuma. In these crystal clear waters, ranging from pale aqua to deep sapphire, the bottom never seems out of reach. The crown jewel is the Exuma’s Cays Land and Sea Park, 174 square miles of fish-filled waters and minuscule cays populated with tropical birds, fauna, and the faded ruins of British Loyalist plantations. Anglers will find a haven outside the Park. The Exuma Flats are world-renowned for challenging bone-fishing and the 6,000-foot depths of Exuma Sound typically yield record amounts of Marlin and other spectacular game fish (chartering for these trips is available). Plus, don't forget your golf clubs to challenge yourself on the Greg Norman designed championship golf course-- after a day of enjoyable play come home to the elegant privacy of Ocean Breeze, shake a cocktail at the tiki bar, put your feet up and rejuvenate for more fun the next day!

About Lonny Baumgardner

I am from Canada, I have been traveling to Exuma for years. It's always been a dream to someday own a home here with plans to call the Bahamas home at some point. I currently live in Rabat, Morocco and have since December 2015. I'm a world traveler and expat, and extremely grateful for my job which allows me to see the world. Over the past years I have resided in Canada, Egypt, Australia and now in Morocco with plans to retire in Exuma at some point.

Lonny Baumgardner purchased this house in 2016

Why Lonny Baumgardner chose Exuma

I have looked at every property for sale on the island for the past few years and last November I looked at this property and instantly realized that this was the one. Ocean Breeze is situated on a stunning ocean front setting with the house sitting up on a hill allowing some of the most beautiful views on the island. When your ready for a swim or looking to read your book in the peace and quite of your private waterfront gazebo your just a few steps from the house to the water.

What makes this house unique

Very close to all amenities including a grocery store, a pharmacy, a liquor store, and just a short drive into Georgetown. 2007 Nissan Fugo (seats 5) included in the rental so that you can explore all of the beauty of Exuma.

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful experience staying at Lonnie's home and enjoying the islands. Monica was very helpful with all arrangements. The location is ideal, as you are just a short drive or walk away from everything. The home has everything you need. The setting is ideal! Thank YOU!

Ocean Breeze was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd visit to George Town, first stay at Ocean Breeze! Lonny was so easy to work with. Alston the driver was at the airport in a large plush van, a short ride and up a slight driveway lined with gorgeous greenery & trees, Monica awaited us at the house! She was super sweet and informative. The moment we walked through the front doors and recognized THE VIEW we felt we'd made a great choice in our vacation home! The water literally glows when the sun is out and you cant help but be drawn out onto the deck. The view is available from living room, kitchen/dining/ master bedroom and bath! From the deck a path is carved through the palm trees and greenery, so tropical, down to the gazebo and rock landing, it is absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of lounge chairs on both the deck and gazebo. This was important to us because we love to chill out with Kaliks and watch the water! There were plenty of beach towels, laundry room had umbrella and snorkel gear. We are a family of 4 with 1 additional friend for a portion of the trip, the large living room with a bar was fun for playing cards, hanging out at night. Kitchen was fully stocked, we grilled on the deck a couple of times and went out for delicious fish and lobster meals at Shirleys, Santanas, Peace & Plenty and Hangouts! All recommended but Santanas and drive down to Tropic of Cancer beach was our fave! The car is kept in a covered garage and was well maintained ... complete with island music on a CD in the stereo, we loved it! We rented a boat from Minns several days, the house is very convenient to town, Minns, the market, gas etc. The wind was up during our visit but once across the harbor the water was fine for boating out around Chat n Chill and several stunning, EMPTY beaches! We also boated around to see the house from the water view and check out the incredible beaches near the house, super sweet! We felt safe and slept wonderfully each night at Ocean Breeze ... oh, air conditioners and wifi worked great. We miss Exuma already! Thanks Lonny and Monica for everything!

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we hoped for. Sitting on the large deck sipping coffee each morning was greeted with a beautiful sunrise. You could walk down a short garden path to go snorkeling off the little cliffs. Great things about this property: House was clean and bright and beach feeling : there was snorkeling equipment for your use . Water cooler was great to have ... lots of chairs out on the deck ...... Monica is only a phone call away if you need back up ..The car took us exploring all over the island and down to the water taxis to go to other islands. House was private and quiet and very restful but with the car you can go to all kinds of restaurants .We had a great time and hope to come again
