Overview

Photos and Description of the Exuma vacation house rental

Beachfront House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Belle Mer Cottage is located on the most beautiful beach on Great Exuma Island. It sits along 2 miles of white sandy beach with views of the protected barrier islands and sailboats gliding into Elizabeth Harbour in Georgetown. Belle Mer is the perfect home to host a romantic retreat or a special family reunion.

Enjoy the gracious open living space with views of the turquoise crystal clear water from every room. The main house with 2500 square feet of living space has large tile floors in all the rooms. It has three master bedrooms with en-suite marble tile double sink bathrooms and each bedroom has flat screen TV's. There is a fourth suite over the garage with two trundle beds, sleeping an additional 4 people. The home has comfortable soft seating and colorful local art.

The two ground floor master bedrooms, with cove wood ceilings and recessed lighting with dimmers, have king size beds with Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers and large sliding doors with screens that open onto the veranda with breathtaking views of the beach. Each bathroom has a large shower and separate toilet room. The upstairs master bedroom is tastefully decorated with a king size bed and child size daybed. It has a large marble tile bathroom with a tub/shower. The fourth bedroom is above the detached double garage, steps from the front door. It has its own bathroom with shower, 2 twin size trundle beds for sleeping up to 4, a flat screen TV and VCR. It is the perfect getaway for kids or a couple of adults who are young-at heart! The house has ceiling fans in every room and central air-conditioning when the island breezes are not cool enough. Please note that although the home has bedding for more, we allow a maximum of 10 people at any one time. Specifically, we permit up to eight adults and two children. The additional bedding simply provides more options to meet the sleeping configuration needs of the group (e.g., a couple staying in the upstairs master bedroom could have their child on the day bed in that room OR if that child was old enough, they could stay in the room above the garage).

The large modern kitchen features new slab granite countertops, stainless steel appliances with two full size refrigerator/freezers, wine cooler, microwave, dishwasher and new glass cooktop/oven. It is fully equipped for you to prepare and enjoy a snack or a gourmet dinner. A full size washer and dryer are within easy reach off the kitchen. The great room features soaring 20 foot ceilings and a large double paddle fan. The entertainment console has a 58 inch smart HD television capable of accessing your own internet-based accounts (e.g., Netflix and Amazon Prime), Blu-ray, Nintendo Wii, iPod docking station, and WiFi. For old fashion fun we have plenty of board games, puzzles, playing cards, and books to read. Bring additional Wii games or Blu-Ray/DVDs to have even more fun in the evening. The large round wood dining table seats 8 or sit on the bar stools around the kitchen island to enjoy your home cooked meals. We can also refer you to a local Bahamian chef who will prepare a great Bahamian meal right in Belle Mer's kitchen. Although we have never experienced crime on the island, there is a safe provided for peace of mind.

Belle Mer features an outstanding outdoor living space with 700 square feet of wrap around veranda next to the beach. An outdoor gas grill and large dining table are great for entertaining. It is the perfect place to watch the billions of stars in the evening sky, listen to the lapping waves on the beach and watch the moon's rising reflection on Belle Mer (beautiful sea).

This beautiful vacation homes offers all the amenities needed for a truly memorable experience. If not relaxing or strolling on the white sandy beach Belle Mer is also equipped with snorkel gear, 2 double sit-on-top sea kayaks, 2 sets of golf clubs, rafts for floating, and children's water toys. All of these are complimentary during your stay. After enjoying the ocean we even have an outside shower next to the veranda. Also consider renting a Boston Whaler in Georgetown to explore Elizabeth harbor, hire a Bonefish guide, take a water taxi to Stocking Island or charter a boat and captain to visit other surrounding Cays. The home is cleaned to spotless before arrival. Guests staying 10 nights or longer receive a complimentary mid-stay cleaning.

The new Sandals Resort (formerly Four Seasons), Greg Norman golf course and Marina can be reached in approximately 20 minutes by taxi or car. A number of grocery stores in Georgetown about 10 minutes away stock all the items you will need for your vacation, but also try the wonderful local restaurants. Our welcome sheet has our favorite restaurants, guides and places to visit for a fun filled vacation. Enjoy!!!

Notes:
A safe is provided for peace-of-mind in securing valuables, and we always recommend keeping the home's doors locked. The island is very peaceful, and we want to do our part to continue to prevent crime. Stays 10 nights or longer include a complimentary mid-stay cleaning. The owners conduct meticulous maintenance on Belle Mer Cottage twice annually. For example, new in 2016 are slab granite countertops in the kitchen, a glass-top stove/oven, and fresh linens.
