About Analia Whitehead

Analia Whitehead purchased this house in 2017

Why Analia Whitehead chose Hartswell

This property is magical, I love Exuma. My family and I have been travelling there since my husband was little. Its a inspiration place, where you are with nature at your footsteps, children and families alike can explore, relax and just be.

What makes this house unique

The view is breathtaking, you can't get used to the color of the sea, it surprises you every time. Every time you walk outside you aren't quite sure what to expect. The house is so comfortable, you can be together in a big group and yet everyone has their own privacy. Its cozy yet comfortable. The most incredible part are the memories.

Casa Bella truly beautiful experience

  • 5 of 5

From our arrival at the airport until our sad return to the airport this trip was magical. Luis met us at the airport and we followed him to the car rental and then to the grocery and liquor store. Upon arrival at Casa Bella, we knew we had chosen the perfect place for our Exuma vacation. The amenities were plentiful, the views spectacular and the breeze amazing! We never wanted for anything and Luis checked on us to make sure all was well. Paddle boarding was such a treat and Little Exuma was very close. We ate at Santana's for lunch and went to the Tropic of Cancer Beach. Spectacular! The kitchen was well stocked. We had a great ice maker and washer and dryer. This place is beautifly maintained. Do yourself a favor and check out the art work on the walls and then peruse the book on the coffee table about Women of the Bahamas. I would highly recommend this house. Missing it already!

Casa Bella indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-appointed house with no attention spared to all of the details. Inside the house the furniture is comfortable, with lovely Bahamian photographs on the walls and tropical décor throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked to any chef's liking. The icemaker is a real plus. But the shining star lies outside! You can lounge on sofas and chairs under three different settings, which makes for a wonderful private escape. There is a lovely private beach, with kayaks and paddleboards to enjoy. The infinity pool is spectacular, creating the sensation of being in and overlooking the sea. The caretaker fulfilled any needs we had. You can also rent a boat docked at the house in their private marina...a must to explore the surrounding sights, which Analia lays out in here welcome booklet.

We have stayed in many homes in the Bahamas over the years, but this is truly one we'll never forget, and can't wait to return!

An absolutely incredible property.

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, our stay at Casa Bella was unbelievable. Three couples traveled to the Exumas, and from our first impression of the property to our departure, it was amazing.

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon, and were blown away by the property, and of course the view from the property. You walk into a great room with a view of what I believe is Moriah Harbour Cay. The house still seems new, and has great furniture, including three very comfortable couches int the great room, a large dining room table, and a well appointed kitchen with a great icemaker. The property also has collapsible ice chests to bring on the boat (more on that later).

Walking outside just blows you away. There is a large gazebo with nice furniture, a beautiful infinity edge pool, a fully functional hot tub, and your own private beach with high quality paddle boards and kayaks. It was amazing having our own private beach. I did not see this in many other properties on the island.

Behind the house is the boat slip. I will say this- to enjoy this area to the fullest, you have to rent the boat. It is a 20 foot Boston Whaler in great shape, and is easy to operate, even in the shallow waters which are everywhere. The best part of our trip was exploring islands and sand bars on the boat, and spending time at Chat N Chill, and awesome beach bar around a 20 minute boat ride away.

The bedrooms at the property were all clean and comfortable, and each had its own thermostat. The bathrooms were big and very nice. Just a few nitpicks- some of the outdoor showers did not work, and we had a few electrical issues (which the staff fixed immediately).

Speaking of the staff, the "property manager" Martin was always extremely helpful, purchasing groceries and alcohol for us, and always there if we needed anything. Having Martin around was an unexpected perk.

Simply put, this property was incredible, and the island even better. I usually like to explore other places, but I have to go back here. It stays with you!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

I don't see what else you could ask for in a vacation rental! The house was beautifully decorated and in the perfect location. We basically had the cove to ourselves, making use of paddle boards and kayaks, it was wonderful. The house has everything you could possibly need and the owner and caretaker were very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend renting the boat and exploring the cays and beautiful beaches. We have been to several islands in the Bahamas and I don't think we have ever seen water so blue. We can't wait to come back to Exuma and Casa Bella!

A stunning vacation home that we highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine had a wonderful two weeks at Casa Bella!! My parents have limited mobility and this gorgeous house is well set up for full accessibility. The outdoor living area is beautiful and is a very safe and family friendly environment. We really enjoyed use of the kayaks and paddleboards and saw many sea turtles, huge starfish and rays. We rented a Boston Whaler from the owners and enjoyed several nearby beaches and lots of fishing. Drex was a super flats fishing guide and we'd recommend Nitza for massages. Nola came in to make lunches for us and we were impressed with the Bahamian food. The owners are very nice and were helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.
