Crazy Low Introductory Rates for this beautiful, one of a kind, round pedestal home at waters edge, with amazing views, incredible dock, swimming, water fun, and the most relaxing spot you'll ever visit...all available for vacation rental for the first time ever!!!

With wrap around balconies, windows and glass doors all the way around and on the water's edge, this home has views and breezes like no other. Huge private dock with steps down to the white sand turquoise waters, two large sitting areas with thatch roof tiki's for shade with a sunset tiki bar that overhangs the beautiful water. Large inflatable island with headrest and cup holders, tied off on mornings makes for never ending fun and relaxation. No need to worry about the kids because these are the bone fish flats, which means besides having incredible turquoise waters with white sand bottom, it also has no drop offs, no undertow, just enough waves to enjoy the sounds and the water is only 3-4 feet deep at it's deepest as far as you can walk or swim.

Sit and read or layout on the white sand directly in front of the home when tide is low. Large kitchen, large living area, and large bedrooms. This home is designed to maximize the views and breezes and it is absolutely spectacular!!! The deck beneath the house is beautifully finished with barbecue grill and furniture to relax and eat while enjoying the beautiful view and breezes.

Aqua Vista is wonderfully secluded and quiet, with the ocean breezes through the whispering pines and waves gently crashing on the shore being all that you hear. But Aqua Vista is also only 8 minutes drive to Georgetown where you can find all the restaurants, stores and activities you could want. Take a boat tour, take a scuba/snorkel charter, do water sports, go deep sea fishing, or rent your own boat. Eat at the wonderful local restaurants, go grocery shopping, souvenir shopping or drive the island to explore the many world class beautiful beaches.

The Exuma locals are wonderful and very friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tad, we are at the airport getting ready to fly back to the real world. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed your gem of a property Aqua Vista.



In all the years we have traveled and places we have stayed, I don't recall using the outdoor space of a property as much as we used this one. The pictures you have posted just doesn't do it justice.



We did travel to a couple beaches we found last year and found a new one this year which I consider the best on the island you can get to by car. Coco Plum Beach, not sure if you have been there, but is a must see next time you are here if you haven't.



Alex was a real pleasure to work with. When we arrived he had our car waiting for us when we walked out, so we were able to load up and go straight to the house.



All in all we had a great trip and look forward to returning to Aqua Vista again in the near future. Thanks to you and Alex for making this trip seamless and extremely pleasurable.



Best Regards,

Ben

You really can't ask for a better place to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh WOW! Where to start? You know how you see some rentals have pictures posted and when you get there it's not exactly what you expected? NOT THIS PLACE! WOW! It ALL looks just like the pictures! It's amazingly beautiful. We never got bored of just sitting out on the deck or the dock and just looking around in awe of the beauty. All of our friends and family thought we went to Bora Bora or Bali from the pictures we showed them. It really is a little slice of heaven! The house is fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Everything works as it should and it was very comfortable.

Customer service from the owner, Tad and the caretaker, Alex, are also top notch. They anticipated any and all needs and made the stay very smooth and comfortable. Alex knows the island top to bottom. He'll tell you everything you need to know from the best places to shop and eat, to the best beaches and snorkel spots. He knows everyone and everyone knows him!

Overall we love the house and the island and we can't wait to return very soon!

Peacefull retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live a busy life so when we go on vacation we really just need to unplug and relax. Aqua Vista was as advertised and we had a great time. Thanks Tad for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

The Amazingly Blue Water was the Star by far!!!

  • 3 of 5

The pros: The water, dock, Tony.

The Cons: the road in is a deal breaker for me coming back. It’s not “just a few pot holes, it’s 1 1/4 mile of torturous land mines. And the bed linens need upgraded.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Tad, Aqua Vista is amazing and Tony is an awesome host, We didn't want to leave, but Tony said we had too... more guests were coming. Ok, so we'll just have to come back. We were lucky enough to have three days of no winds and water like glass. Because of this, we were even able to stand up paddle board to one of the closer cays.Took the boat to the rest. Non stop relaxation and fun. Strangely enough, even with no winds, very few mosquitos and noseeums. Maybe it was the religious application of deep woods off. Weather was perfect, water was perfect, everything was perfect. Thank you!

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! I am one of those people who gets a little skeeved out staying away from home - but felt completely comfortable in Tads home. It was very clean, beds were comfortable, kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates/cups/pans, things we needed to cook most of our own meals rather then going out, which was our goal. As other users mentioned, some of the items get rusty just from the salt exposure, however..no big deal. Some of the older reviews of the home indicate that "there is no one around", however, they have more recently built another home that is immediately next to this one..that being said...it is a gorgeous home, and during our stay there wasn't a soul in it. So we definitely had a ton of privacy and even if they were there I imagine it wouldn't have been a concern at all. The neighbors house appears to be a vacation home that isn't occupied all that frequently?

We did not rent a car. We utilized a local taxi service but they DID grunt and groan about getting us because the road back to the house is VERY secluded, and has a lot of potholes. The taxi drivers in the Bahamas hate pot holes because they're concerned about their cars. Most of the taxi drivers did NOT know where the home was by its current road name. Apparently it used to be called something else which I will not disclose, but make sure you inquire with the owner.

The kayaks were great. Unfortunately the weather was very windy the week we came so we did not get to use the paddleboards. We could tell, however, that typically when it is not windy the water was could be like GLASS. It was a little rough during our stay. We had fun fishing around the little islands.

I would say that if I brought my kids to the Bahamas with me (hahahahahha), I wouldn't consider this the ideal home due to the lack of any beach. I know some say there is a small beach during low tide and when they say "small"..picture fitting like one beach chair on there. It would've been tough with smaller kids I think and I would consider a different house. For us adults, we preferred this home to others we have visited in the Bahamas due to its location, fishing, and adventuring opportunities. We would definitely come back!

A few small cons. As others mentioned, the water smell in the showers and sink was really bad initially. After the property manager treated it after a few days it wasn't so bad. Had some trouble with the oven which I will email owner about. Otherwise, amazing :)

Aqua Vista was great

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Aqua Vista was delightful - beautiful water, great accommodations and perfect weather. We spent our time sunning on the pier, kayaking, bone fishing and paddle boarding.

We hope to return to this laid back paradise.
