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 bone fish flats steps away for water sports but no beach per se.

Lush tropical foliage surrounds this centrally located property that offers easy access to the bone fish flats steps away for water sports but no beach per se. The six best beaches are a 10 to 20 minute drive by car and Georgetown is only 10 minutes away by car. 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 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 do charge 100.00 extra per person after 4 guests. We ask that guests be 25 or older unless traveling with parents. One must be 25 to rent a car in the Bahamas. Please note that we are located in an amazing location off the beaten path. The road to our house along with other roads can be rough and we suggest a suitable car rental. Although the Exuma International Airport(GGT) is very small and quaint, the following airlines fly into Exuma : Delta, United, American , Air Canada, US Air,Bahamasair, Sky Air and Silver. There are direct flights from Miami , Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta. More

About the neighbourhood
The Hummingbird House is located on a ridge 3.5 miles south of Georgetown on Great Exuma Island. It has a 360 panoramic view of the Atlantic and Caribbean azure waters and is surrounded by tropical gardens .... very tranquil and private. Wake up to the sounds of hummingbirds and banaquits while you enjoy coffee on the 800 square foot balcony .There is private parking and rental car or taxi services available. The house is in a great location to enjoy all the amazing southern Exuma beaches and is steps away from world class bone fishing, kayaking and snorkeling. We also have several good restaurants such as Frangipani , Cheaters and Turquoise Cay in the neighborhood. With Georgetown only a short walk or ride away , one can easily enjoy all the amenties of town too.
Getting around
We are close to town and beaches but do suggest a rental car so you can see the whole island . We can assist with renting a car if need be.
