Overview

About the property

One bedroom, one bath beach-view cottage with spacious deck and open floor plan

If you're looking for the perfect place to spend a romantic week or some quality time with the family while enjoying secluded, white-sand beaches and world-class sportfishing, then look no further. Our newly remodeled one-bedroom cottage features a king-size bed as well as a fold-out sofa to comfortably sleep up to four guests. To ensure your stay is everything you hoped and more, we've redesigned the kitchen, which now includes a stove top, oven, microwave and stainless-steel refrigerator. To stock up the kitchen, Georgetown is a short 20-minute drive and offers not only a grocery store, but also a vibrant straw market where you can purchase local delicacies and hand-made crafts.

If cooking isn't your thing, or you're looking for a quality dining-out experience, our cottage is located a mere five minutes from both Santannas and Tropical Breeze. Both restaurants are excellent and offer full bars.

The cottage also features a flat-panel television complete with a DVD player, satellite TV and Netflix - and if staying connected to the outside world is a necessity, we've also got WiFi. Of course, if you're staying in to watch a movie, feel free to wash your beach towels and bathing suits in our laundry facility.

When you're not inside enjoying the spacious cottage, you'll quickly notice that there is a breathtaking view of the beaches directly off of the deck. A short walk brings you to the water's edge, where you'll have the luxury of enjoying a true white-sand beach without the crowds of more touristy destinations. Watch the sailboats, swim, snorkel, and enjoy the popular fishing opportunities - including incredible bonefish fishing - all out your front door. And if the wind should pick up and the waves get to be a bit too big for your taste, simply walk across the street and take the path to the sheltered, salt lagoon that is ideal for swimming and is also rimmed with white-sand beaches.

This truly is the perfect getaway for anyone who is looking for relaxation, seclusion (there are only two other houses on the entire street), and the chance to unwind at their own pace without the typical tourist rush of other destinations.

About Scott and Kelly Kastner

Kelly and I love to travel and we've been to beaches throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. While we've enjoyed all of our vacations, we wanted to find an area that offered the right beaches, the right atmosphere, and fewer people. We found Little Exuma and fell in love with the island so much that we decided it was time to buy a property.

Scott and Kelly Kastner purchased this house in 2015

Why Scott and Kelly Kastner chose William's Town

When we saw this cottage we knew that it was right for us. The location is ideal with the beach on one side and the lagoon on the other, and after spending a week there initially and only seeing one couple on the beach the entire time, we had our minds made up.

What makes this house unique

This cottage is truly located in the most peaceful, secluded and beautiful area we've ever visited. You can operate at your own pace and enjoy all the island has to offer without the crowds, which truly allows you to relax and let your vacation be a true vacation.

The most relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation. Kelly was very helpful and attentive before and during our trip. This house was perfect. It had everything we needed and more - plus, it was very nicely decorated. We cooked in several nights in the fully equipped kitchen, and also went to the fun restaurants close by - Tropic Breeze and Santana's. We were the only people on the beach all week and took the kayaks out every day. We all four agreed this is our new favorite vacation spot because of the house, relaxed way of life, remoteness and gorgeous ocean water. Thank you, Kelly and Scott!

Awesome Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect for a couple and has a great layout with excellent lighting from many windows. Its definately 5 stars but I must say despite being in a great location, you cannot walk to the beach. Beach access is really cut off by dense bush and trees, making it impassible to reach. Kelly was super amenable to our request for a late checkout and the property manager there was also AWESOME. There’s a kayak there you can load up and take down to the nearby cove as long as you have a car. Overall our stay was excellent.

Hidden Gem in Exuma

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks at the White Sand Cottage in Little Exuma. We were able to relax and appreciated the quiet area where the cottage is located. It was one of the best vacations we ever had.

The home was clean and fully equipped with EVERYTHING you need. The appliances were new and in great working condition. The bed was very comfortable and had ample pillows and bedding.

The home is very close to Tropic of Cancer beach were we spent most of our time. Some days we felt like we were the only people on the beach.

The owners were very quick with responding to our emails and really made you feel like you were at home. Thank you Kelly and Scott for sharing your beautiful home on this breathtaking island.

We will be back!!

Wonderful, comfortable seclusion

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, in a lovely secluded location, and had all the amenities for us to enjoy the beaches and ocean. We enjoyed exploring during the day and coming home to our comfortable, private space to relax in the evening. We really enjoyed using the kayak to paddle from the bridge to the beach on Moriah Cay. Within walking distance were a beach we usually had to ourselves, Tropic of Cancer beach, and a saltwater lagoon area.

We ate in many nights. The kitchen was convenient and well stocked with equipment and some staple pantry items (oil, flour, spices, paper supplies). Just remember the grocery stores are not super close, so get what you need when you are in Georgetown. It was nice to be able to eat in at night since the nearby restaurants both closed early.

We liked being in a secluded area, even if it was a bit of a drive to the area where the boat tours leave from. The bed was also super comfortable, which I find is not always the case at hotels. It was really easy to control the temperature and decide if we wanted the A.C. or to have the screen doors let in a breeze along with the ocean sounds. The internet connection was really good and helped us look up places to go, phone numbers to call restaurants, check in with family. We heard folks at some of the resorts complaining about internet slowness, but we never had a problem.

The owner Kelly was very responsive to questions before our trip, which helped us plan. We had never rented through vrbo before, but she made it an easy experience. Theo, the manager, also checked in to make sure we got settled in the first day.

All in all, we loved our stay at White Sands Cottage. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet comfortable private getaway with lots of beach amenities nearby.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were new to Exuma and the Bahamas. The cottage is very quiet and peaceful because it is remote from the hustle bustle of GeorgeTown. We really enjoyed our week here; the ocean view and access to the beaches are phenomenal. The cottage is well-equiped with ordinary necessities (bandaids, sunscreen), complete kitchen equipment, and a lot of beach paraphernalia (snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, kayak!). Kelly was very accessible and prompt in addressing the glitch in the internet connection. The 1.5 mile road from the Queen’s Highway to the cottage is rough so you are well-advised to rent a vehicle with a lot of clearance. We rented a Honda CRV which was fine. All in all, a wonderful sunny and relaxing vacation.
