Overview

About the property

3 bedroom , 2.5 bath sleeps 6 house (1800 sq ft with 800 sq ft balcony)

A very spacious house with 1800 square feet inside plus a large wrap around deck.Breathtaking views of the Atlantic and Caribbean ...Experience Great Exuma from the comfort and privacy of the Hummingbird House and enjoy stunning 360 degree views of the colorful waters of Elizabeth Harbor, Master Harbor, Crab Cay and the south side bone fish flats. Soak up the sun and revel in the mild maritime climate of the cays while making this well appointed refuge your own, with space for parties of up to 6 guests. Lush tropical foliage surrounds this centrally located property that offers easy access to the south side water ways, beaches and bone fish flats; take a 10 minute drive to Georgetown or head up the road to Cheater’s restaurant. Or stay in and enjoy the unique open floor plan of the upper floor: a fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining room areas and 2 covered, elevated porches connected by a walk around deck space. The upper floor also contains a single bedroom and half bath as well as a day bed in the living room that sleeps 1 guest. Downstairs you’ll find spacious king and queen bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, and the house laundry room. Wake up to the tranquil sounds of hummingbirds and bananaquits that frequent the tropical gardens surrounding the house.

The house is located 20 minutes or less by car from the beautiful southern beaches, including Hooper's Bay, Jolly Hall, Stocking Island, Forbes Hill and the world famous Tropic of Cancer (voted among the top ten beaches of the world by “Island Living” magazine). The bonefish flats, known for world-class fishing, are a ten minute walk away...wade into bonefish and do your own thing and the Moriah Harbour Cay National Park is minutes away by car. These waters are fabulous for kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and other water sports.

The private location of this house provides the perfect getaway for those seeking peace and tranquility despite being close to several restaurants and the amenities of the quaint town of George Town. Whether you enjoy relaxing, golfing, bird watching, beach combing, fishing, water sports or night life, the Hummingbird House is your home away from home for enjoying all the cays have to offer. We purchased the home in December 2013 so we have just started renting the house. Everyone has really enjoyed their stay so far. Please contact us if we can provide more information and ask about stays for longer than one month.

Notes:
Please ask for directions to this very private location.The entire house is tiled and is very spacious and comfortable .The house and garden are situated on a 20,000 square foot lot surrounded by natural vegetation 40 feet above sea level . The Georgetown International Airport is very small and quaint but there are several major airlines that fly into GGT. Delta, United, American, US Air, Air Canada, Bahamasair, Silver and Sky all fly into this little airport. We have had good luck connecting in Atlanta on Delta which has a direct flight to Exuma and also on United and American , connecting in Miami or Fort Lauderdale. Air Canada also offers some very good connections from the East Coast.There are several good car rental agencies and also taxi services. We suggest travel insurance in the summer months because we do not refund in case of hurricanes.You are welcome to rebook though at no additional charge.
