About Jackie Ferris

Interested in buying a holiday property for years, then fell in love with Exuma when we went on vacation. Island's amazing, and this beach is incredible.

Jackie Ferris purchased this house in 2014

Why Jackie Ferris chose Exuma

The most spectacular setting and beach we'd ever seen, and the house was modern, well decorated and well equipped.

What makes this house unique

Great combination of beach and sun with places to sit in the shade and just watch the water. Upstairs balcony off the bedrooms with rocking chairs is just about the best place to read in the world.

There are two double kayaks, a hammock and full sized laundry machines, as well as lots of water toys.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been to many tropical places and enjoy trying different islands each year, but we are already planning on returning here again next year. The house was wonderful, the views even better than the pictures. We enjoyed the kayaks and beach floats. Everything you could need is here. We had our groceries delivered to the house, that is very much recommended. I normally read about three books while on vacation, but I only read about a half a book this year because I did not want to stop staring at the views. My family loved the shuffleboard and board games in the house. If you are thinking of booking, just do it you will not be disappointed.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house. We did not even want to leave the house most days. Really enjoyed having the large outdoor living spaces. The bedrooms and baths were comfortable and beautiful. Nicely situated on a beach with snorkeling just off the beach. Enjoyed using the kayaks to paddle to nearby islands. Definitely will be back.

Great House, Great Beach, Great Experience !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Exuma and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We had a great time at the Papaya House. The house was very nice and clean and had plenty of space. It came with everything we needed to make our stay stress free and comfortable. What can I say about the beach? It was the most beautiful beach we had ever seen! We pretty much had it to ourselves the entire stay. I don't have one negative thing to say about our trip at all. We definitely would recommend the Papaya House to anyone considering making a trip to the Bahamas. Thanks again for sharing your little bit of Paradise with us!

Oklahoma family Trip 2018

  • 5 of 5

Party of 7 stayed in the Papaya House and it was wonderful! Everything that you could need and have was there at the house. Plenty of room for all and the water was great. We saw a dolphin out in the cove and while snorkeling we saw a stingray. Our family can't wait to come back and stay in the Papaya House again.

Perfect place for peace and quiet with exceptional beach frontage.

Beautiful, well-kept property with everything you need to have some water and beach fun or hang in the shade playing games. 7 nights was not enough for me!
