This beautiful house is situated on one of the most beautiful beaches in Great Exuma. The house has 280+' of beachfront to relax on, catch some sun or swim in the breathtaking tourquoise water. You can walk this beach for several peaceful miles. There is a hammock to lie in with the water lapping in your view while you enjoy a tropical drink! This 2 bedroom house is decorated with colorful, tropical furniture and fabrics with great attention to detail for the most diserning traveler. It features most everything you need to not really have to leave the property unless you want to. The kitchen is fully equipped with Thermador products including a 36' range, refrigerator/ freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Also includes Nespresso coffee maker, blender and and everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. The beds include a King size in the Master with the finest sheets and linens (John Robshaw) while the guest room has 2 twins which can be converted if desired to a King. There are 3 flat screen TVs with DVD players in each room and a Bose Dock for music. It is truly a place that when you arrive you never want to leave. The visual beauty from the large deck on the Sea is second to none and cocktails in the evening with the view of the Caribbean sky is quite extraordinary. You will leave well rested with a desire to return as soon as possible!
It is absolutely beautiful! The view is one of the best on the Island. It's peaceful, serene vibe and close proximity to Georgetown makes it as close to perfect as you can get.
" We had a perfect vacation in your house and really loved the beach and walking (twice a day) It was a bit windy but the last couple days we were there we were able to get in a little snorkeling out front. The house was so neat, fresh and tidy...a great painting job. The kitchen was a dream and we used it more than we did on other vacations and that deli is great for meats and other things Nice to be a little familiar with the area this time. When we arrived early March, there was not a flower in your yard but in no time we were enjoying all sorts of lovely flowers. Thank you for sharing your Holiday Affair with us."
This was our first trip to the Bahamas and this property was the perfect choice for our stay. The photos do a nice job of advertising but don't quite capture just how beautiful this location actually is in person. What the photos don't really show is the feeling of seclusion and privacy you get because the property has great foliage on both sides separating you from the other properties. It was so peaceful that we spent an entire day of our vacation "at home" lounging on the deck or swimming in the beautiful blue waters. The location was very convenient for exploring the whole island and only a short drive from the airport, the market, and the docks to catch the water taxi.
The owner was very responsive both before and after our stay. The caretaker was wonderful and patient in answering our questions when she came to unlock the kayak storage for us. The property had everything (and then more) to make us feel quite at home during our vacation. The kitchen was amazingly well-stocked, there were board games and tons of books, and the beach towels were plentiful. We also found a folder full of information about excursions and activities waiting for us on the counter in the kitchen which was very helpful in planning some of the things we hadn't already decided to do.
We fully intend to visit the Exumas again and this will be the first place we check for availability!
Right on the beach. What an amazing home. The owners must have hired professional decorators, because the design and decor was fabulous! The home is way off of the main road, and in a very secluded part of the beach. We stayed for two weeks with one other couple and rarely left the house. We only saw one other couple walking on the beach for the whole two weeks.
We just returned from a fantastic seven-day stay at Holiday Affair. We booked only a month prior to leaving and we hit a home run choosing this beautiful home for our vacation. Centrally located on Tar Bay, the house is only a 10 - 12 minute drive to Georgetown and even closer to Smitty's Convenience Store and Prime Island Meats and Deli. Caretaker Sasha answered all of the questions we asked of her prior to our arrival, even providing the name of a local chef who cooked a wonderful dinner for us (for a fee, of course) on one of our last nights on the island. Because the house is on a fairly large lot, with 270' of beachfront, neighboring houses are not too close by, giving the house an extremely private feel, especially from the deck and patio. The grounds are very well maintained and tiled/stone walkways surround the house. The house has two outdoor showers, one with hot water close to the patio and bedrooms and another with cold water only but with a low spigot to rinse sand from your feet off the second bedroom patio. We used both regularly.
Of course, the greatest feature of the house is its location on the crystal clear waters of Tar Bay. The beach is gorgeous and the water warm. While we were there, we saw only a handful of people walking the beach each day, something we enjoyed also.
Another aspect of the home we absolutely loved was the multiple sliding glass doors facing the water. With one in the master bedroom, three in the dining room/kitchen level and three in the raised living room (one that actually faces south), the 10 - 15 mph breeze we had every day kept the house nice and cool. The steady breeze also meant no mosquitoes or no-see-ums biting us.
Although the house only sleeps four, there are enough plates, glasses (plastic and glass), silverware and towels (bath and beach) to serve a home more than twice the size. The modern appliances were first-rate and the microwave appeared to be brand new. The well-appointed kitchen has everything needed to cook a gourmet meal. Our only suggestions for the kitchen: new oven mitts and a couple of re-usable ice packs for day trips to other beaches. A worker at Smitty's was kind enough to give us two ice packs, which we left behind. The house could also use a clothesline to help dry wet bathing suits and beach towels. We used the deck railings and shower curtain rods.
Thank you, Nanci, for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would happily return!
This property is ideal for two couples or a family with 2 children / teens. The home is even more amazing then the pictures! We enjoyed the chef kitchen and prepared most of our meals ourselves. Comfy beds, an outdoor shower, a great beach to walk on and a spacious deck to read and relax on were highlights for us. The ocean was steps away and we regularly and frequently took the time to enjoy the waves and swim. The nights were so clear that we were able to spend hours star gazing before a good night's sleep. Thank you to Jenny for offering to stock the fridge with some needed items. She was just a call away if we needed anything. Thank you to Nanci for sharing this slice of heaven with us! A perfect vacation was had by all 4 of us!
First of all, the photos on the website do not do it justice. The beach access & views are stunning, both from the sand and the large deck. No houses on either side & limited development up & down the coast mean that you rarely see any one else.
You can walk over a mile up & down the beach in either direction on the sparkling white sands to enjoy some of the best aquamarine colors we have seen anywhere in the world.
The house has full-length sliding glass doors along the ocean side making the view from within as good as from the outside. No problems with the furnishings, appliances or facilities. Jenny (property manager) was always a quick phone call away if we needed anything. She met us at the airport so we wouldn't have to find our own way & showed us the entire house & its workings upon our arrival.
If you only need two bedrooms, this is the villa for you. We don't normally return to the same places as this is a great big world to see - but this is one that we could come back to. If it was big enough for our extended family, we would already be making arrangements to bring them here.
The Holiday House was just lovely and tastefully decorated. I appreciated all of the comfortable beading, pillows and beach towels. It was perfect for the 3 of us. I really like Hoopers Bay, the location of the house. The house was on a great beach and located close to Georgetown and shopping. There were a few minor problems (refrigerator never worked…but a small one in the laundry room outside did, so we made do) and the air conditioner in the main sitting room didn't put out any cool air. But that kind of mechanical malfunctions are expected in a house by the sea. The salt air gets into everything! The internet didn't work for the first few days but eventually someone came out and actually repaired it! (I get the feeling its almost a miracle to get anyone to actually get a job done on the island!) But these things are typical in the Caribbean. I was happy that the showers had a good flow of hot water! (another thing that I find is hard to come by in the Caribbean). I would love to come back to this house. It was so very comfortable. Absolutely Lovely.
