There are numerous turtles, rays and fish, ideal for snorkeling around the corals in front of the house. There is a deck and railings that are literally a few feet from the sea . The house was built with panoramic views in mind, and upstairs the master bedroom suite with four poster bed, has its own balcony, overlooking the stunning turquoise blue, shallow waters that are very safe for kids. The house has its own private, swimming pool, all protected wrap around, with see through railings ideal for families.

A local convenience store, with drug and liquor stores, are within walking distance of the house.

Stocking island is only a five minute boat ride across the bay.

The house is only two miles from Georgetown and 15 minutes from the airport. The house is set in a very secluded, stunning shallow bay with no immediate neighbors.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at The Jolly Turtle. The house was wonderful and the view amazing. We had no problems with the house, it had everything we needed,. We love the the quiet private beach are and pool. It is close enough to Georgetown to run to the grocery store. We rented a car. Mr Miller cares about his renters and called to make sure everything was ok during our stay. Wendy the property manager is also very helpful . We want to return for another week at the Jolly Turtle. Miss that beautiful view already.

Awesome house - Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned form a 7 night stay at Jolly Turtle. A party of 9 ( two families ) had plenty of space for all. Plenty of beach front with soft , soft sand and ,as mentioned , great snorkeling out front. All of the rooms have AC but the first floor living area and kitchen do not. We just left the sliders open and let the ocean breeze flow through and that was perfect. All the beds where comfy and who cares about thread count as mentioned in a previous review( lame). The kitchen was well set up with all the basics and more. We ate out a lot but cooked breakfast every morning. We rented a boat from Minns and were able to anchor it in the cove out front. Dianne Minns lives next door and keeps a very watchful eye on your ongoings . The location was ideal for walking to the grocery store ( 10 min walk) and Splash restaurant ( American food). Prime Meat Deli and Meats was just a little past the grocery store ( fresh seafood and steaks). If you do walk anywhere there is a good chance that someone will offer you a ride. Jolly Hall beach is 5 min walk one way and Hoopers Bay beach is a 20 min walk the other way. Overall this place was perfect for it proximity to Georgetown and all the other mention amenities. The pool was a nice way to get the salt off but seemed a little chilly most of the time which is fine because the ocean was like 80 degrees. An outdoor shower would be nice. Some of the furniture is on its last legs as this is a rental and you might expect to see some wear but never was an issue . Great place - great location! Taxi ride from airport is about 20 mins.Use bug spray everyday like brushing your teeth if you plan on venturing out , you won't see them but they are there. Do the 4 C's adventure , it was the best price and you see it all. Thats all I can think of, hope this helps. Prior to renting we researched for days and we were not disappointed in our decision , highly recommend .

An Ideal Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

The Jolly Turtle House met and exceeded our expectations! The house's panoramic view of the ocean from the back porch and master bedroom balcony was just as amazing, if not better, than shown in the photos online. The house is spacious and has enough room for a large group to stay comfortably.

The water at the house's beachfront was shallow and made for fun snorkeling. One of the other highlights of our stay at the Jolly Turtle came as an extra bonus: the view of the stars and night sky was the best we've seen in years due to hardly any light pollution in the area. We would return to the Jolly Turtle.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults and three teenagers stayed at the Jolly Turtle and it was amazing. The location of and views from the house are breathtaking. We are glad we selected Exuma as our destination as it was so secluded and peaceful! We really have no complaints about the house or our stay. It was very spacious, clean, and we were able to cook almost all of our meals for seven days at the house. Definitely go to Stocking Island, book the Ocean Safari with Exuma Water Sports (at the north end of the island--swim with the pigs!) and interact with the locals--what friendly people! Renting a car is also highly recommended. Thanks to Wendy for answering our questions.

Great

  • 5 of 5

What GREAT time we had at Jolly Turtle hose. The house was clean and neat. Perfect for the five Stewart cousins and spouses. Thanks for the condiments, spices and coffee that were stocked for us. The views were amazing. We wanted to just sit forever and look out at the beautiful water. What a treat for us that there was a regatta going on that week. We saw some beautiful boats every morning!! There were a couple of issues but a quick call to Steve and all was fixed. Sorry for the middle of the night call...too many Goombay Smashes! Our stay was wonderful; thanks to Patrick our taxi man, Bob with the Exuma Cays Adventure and Dallas with the fishing charter. Stocking Island and Chat 'N Chill were lots of fun. We even joined in the tournament fun with coconut challenge, beach golf and bocce ball. Won a couple of awards too! Have already recommended you, Steve, to friends who are looking for a great place. Thank you again for a wonderful time and hopefully the Stewarts will return soon!!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. The view is amazing and the house has a very airy feel to it. We rent lots of houses all over and really appreciated that someone was thinking when they designed this house. The bathrooms and bedrooms were well planned. The necessary conveniences are in the kitchen and laundry and we really loved the solid clear railing which doesnt seem like a big deal until you are on the deck during a high wind. Also, it was fantastic to have a pool for swimming at night. Rent a boat at Minns and hire Bob at exumaseatours.com to take you to Staniel Cay for the day to swim with pigs and dive the gratto. Enjoy.
