Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Exuma - The Tree House

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, on upper floor of two story building, sleeps 2.

The Tree House is located in Old Hooper's Bay, a secluded private development on Great Exuma. This small neighborhood has it's own private beach, a few minutes walk from the cottage, with great snorkeling just off shore.

The Tree House is air-conditioned, has one bedroom with queen-bed and sea view, fully-equipped kitchen, bath with walk-in shower, and laundry facilities. The living area leads to a lovely balcony, with a fabulous view of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond. The Tree House is the upper floor of a two story building (the lower floor is our own personal storage space) and thus has a stunning view of Hooper's Bay. Perfect for one couple, this cottage is available for rental separately, or in conjunction with Mayaguana House for larger groups. (See Mayaguana House listing on VBRO.)

If you would like the vacation of a lifetime, check our 'Tree House' out, you will not be disappointed!

About Pam

I have been coming to Exuma since 1969. It is still the wonderful island that I discovererd that year. Sure, a few things have changed. Instead of drinking Tang like the astronauts, we can now buy orange juice. Instead of driving to George Town to make a phone call, we now have land line phones, cell phones and internet! But the charm of the island remains the same. The water is still turquoise, the beaches still pristine, the Exumians still friendly and kind hearted. Am I biased? Probably! Do I love it? Yes! And you will, too, after spending time here.

Why Pam chose Bahamas

Whereas many of the homes are located right on the Queen's Highway, which runs along the island on the east side, our home is located in Old Hooper's Bay. Old Hooper's Bay is conveniently situated just 5 miles from George Town, BUT it is a 30 acre compound reached by our private road from the highway. You must drive in, up and over a significant verdant hill to reach the main section of the compound. This 1/4 mile distance provides a luxurious insulator from the traffic on the Queen's Highway. Plus our views of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond are spectacular! The private road deters wanderers. The Old Hooper's Beach Park is shared by the 9 homes in the compound. No worries about over-crowding! We are very blessed!

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5

What a little gem on Great Exuma! Quiet and secluded, yet so close to Georgetown, grocery and restaurants. The little beach park is simply beautiful. Uniquely landscaped, this is a perfect place to spend a few hours on your own private beach - with a very comfortable hammock! Pam and Bill are wonderful hosts and the neighbors in Old Hoopers Bay are warm and welcoming. What hospitality! We spent 17 nights at the Tree House and enthusiastically recommend it to those who are looking for a place to experience the best of Great Exuma. Thanks again Pam and Bill!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the tree house so much. We loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings, very relaxing. Everything was very clean! Our favorite restaurant on the island was Santana's. We rented a boat for a day and toured around the bay ourselves. Prime island meats is so close to the house and has delicious sandwiches too! Everything was wonderful. The house is very close to town. We found it very convenient!

quiet and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

The perfect spot for two people who need and love peace and quiet! The house is located on beautiful Hoopers Bay - what can we say what hasn't been mentioned already - private beach with a small house reef, you can hang around in the water all day long, all kind of fish, sea turtles and much more , the house was clean and well equiped, just what we expected and had hoped for. Being able to use the kayak a few times was great! We were also very glad we had a rental car, so we could explore all the amazing beaches on Exuma, and everything elses this island has to offer!

Pam was a great help, giving tips on what to do and where to go, and answering all our questions way before arriving on Exuma!

There was only one thing who gave us a tough time in those two weeks in august, the AC in the small bedroom was out of order/broken/ not fixed/ whatever. The fan on the ceiling of the small bedroom could not handle the standing heat at all, no matter what you did, entering the bedroom was like hitting a wall and not to mentione trying to sleep. This had me sleeping on the floor in the living/dining room area a couple times....

Besides that- we would always recommend Exuma! Especially Hoopers Bay- the best place to stay!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that the air conditioner in the bedroom malfunctioned. I so wish you had contacted me, as I would have been happy to have it repaired during your visit. I have just spoken with my local caretaker and the issue is being addressed today. We work hard to keep everything in tip top shape. Please accept our apologies!

Highly Recommend The Tree House

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Pam or The Tree House. Pam responded to all my inquiries very quickly, and had pages upon pages of helpful information available that we used to do the majority of planning for our week in the Exumas. The house is located extremely centrally - its just a short drive from the airport, to grocery and liquor stores, and George Town. Wake up every morning to see the Caribbean sunrise over the sea, and then spend the day at the (VERY private) Old Hoopers Bay beach, where you will likely not see another person, and the snorkeling is absolutely fantastic.

The Tree House has everything you need and more - washer/dryer, every kitchen accoutrement you can think of, coffee pot, fantastic balcony, AC, fans, and wi-fi. It was perfectly clean when we arrived. We were very comfortable and would highly recommend this property - we're so grateful that we found it and were able to stay here. Thank you Pam - we hope to come back one day.

Exuma is the real deal - stunning, stunning water, islands, and cays. Just be sure to bring Off! repellent everywhere you go (mosquitoes are bad but Deet works immediately), more sunscreen than you think you'll need, and plan for lotssss of time between flight connections to and from the island :)

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent nine days at the Tree House. If you are looking for a place to completely relax, chill-out, and just "watch the flowers grow" then Exuma, and especially the Tree House, is the place for you. Simple, but very comfortable accommodation with everything that you will need, and just a few minutes walk to a virtually private sandy beach. Local shopping for all the essentials is nearby, but you will need a car - we used Berlies, and they were fine. I can only say ....... we plan to go again!!

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and beautiful place. About 2 minute walk to perfect, secluded beach. Lovely place - just like on VRBO photos.

Air conditioned. And Pam with her husband are very friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed. Nothing more to say. Paradise.
