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.

Perfect place for peace and quiet with exceptional beach frontage.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the patio can't be beat, this place is truly beautiful! The high wind prevented us from enjoying a calm beach, but that's the unpredictable tropics for you! The upstairs bedrooms were bright, decorated in clean whites with a beachy feel, and the beds were the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. I literally felt like I was sleeping on a cloud! Downstairs had tons of movies and some bonus floats in the garage. Kitchen was well equipped. This house has everything you need and more, do not hesitate to book.

We loved the week at Papaya House, the property was even better than the pics, the view was breathtaking and we were in the ocean everyday. We will definitely be back!

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and it was everything we had read about in previous reviews! Very quiet location, very helpful manager, gorgeous water view and beautiful beach. The house is well appointed with plenty of beach towels, kitchen equipment and some great games! Two restaurants not too far down the road were a hit for local flavor. Hope to be back again!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing views from the patio. BEST place to sit, relax, read and laugh with good friends. The weather was very windy so sadly snorkeling was not possible this trip. However walking the beach right in your own "backyard" was great! Onike was a fabulous aid in advising our group to some great places to dine. LOVED Santana and Mom's Bakery. The coconut bread makes incredible French toast. Both are a quick drive from the house. Highly recommend asking Onike to pick up a few or all your groceries. Keep in mind the grocery stores are closed on Sunday as well as quite a few restaurants. We read previous reviews about the no-see-ums. Great advise as we were glad one of us brought Skin so Soft and the house was stocked with Deep Woods Off. The one "no wind day" brought them with a vengeance. The shuffleboard table and Jenga game were a blast, we never turned the TV on the whole week. The kitchen was well stocked as we cooked several meals in during the week. Looking forward to returning and trying out the kayaks and water toys next time. Thank you Jackie for sharing your beautiful home, what a fabulous winter get away!

Fantastic Papaya House

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas 2017 at Papaya House with our children and grandchildren. The house had the perfect accommodations for our family and the beautiful beach is just steps down from the back patio. There were some neighbors but we rarely saw them so basically had a private beach all to ourselves.The archways on the back of the house take full advantage of the ocean views.

We can't say enough about all the amenities the house offers. We enjoyed the great selection of DVD"s, music CD's, PlayStation 3 and the shuffleboard table outside on the patio.

There are beach toys for the kids, plenty of nice beach towels, some snorkel equipment although we brought our own and two kayaks. Taking them out to the nearby cays was a highlight.

The kitchen is well equipped and the 3 bedrooms (all with ocean views) and baths are good sized and very nice. Even the small twin bed room is pleasant.

We hope to return to Papaya House and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a private and pristine setting!
