    About this property

    Perfect Location; Spacious, Private With Panoramic sea Views

    Waterfront apartment with kitchen and patio
    *Our property and island was NOT affected by Hurricane Dorian* This unit is in the detached guest wing of a private home, on a hilltop with a panoramic view of the harbor and off-shore cays half a mile west of Georgetown. The apartment is completely private, with its own entrance and outdoor deck. Cooled by Atlantic breezes and good air conditioning, it is a 2-minute drive to Georgetown shops, groceries, restaurants, boat rental, straw market and water taxis. Two minutes in the opposite direction takes you to 'The Fish Fry', a group of casual native restaurants serving tasty Bahamian cuisine, beer and cocktails, and more hotels with restaurants and bars. The beach is 300 yards away at the bottom of the hill, a 1- minute walk, with good snorkeling 100 feet off the shore. Tour boats frequently bring snorkelers to these reefs, which are shallow, easy to swim, and some of the best in the harbor. Other beaches are only a mile or two away, including Hooper's Bay, where you can swim with turtles. Bring your mask and fins, or rent some locally to save weight in your luggage. The apartment itself is a spacious 675 square feet, with an additional 675 square feet of terrace for outdoor dining and lounging – a total of 1,350 square feet of living space. It comprises an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, one bedroom with a comfortable new king sized bed, a large clothes closet, and an en-suite shower room. Sky apartment is decorated throughout in tropical colors with island-style furniture, including a TV with Cable and a DVD player. Internet is free. There are high ceilings, lots of windows for cross ventilation and views, ceiling fans in every room, and two split-system air conditioners – one in the living area, one in the bedroom. These operate individually, so you need only cool the area you are using. As electricity is extremely expensive in Exuma (it is oil generated) we ask you kindly to turn off air conditioners when you leave for the day. The units are efficient and will cool your room in minutes when you return. Halcyon itself is surrounded by one acre of garden, with inviting paths for you to enjoy. There is a large parking area and you can park next to your apartment. A rental car is necessary for exploring the island, eating out, bringing in drinks and groceries, and conveniently getting about. Most things are within walking distance, so a car is not strictly necessary, but please note: in Exuma there are no sidewalks or bike paths, the roads are rough and narrow with few streetlamps, and we drive on the left. The Tropic of Cancer runs right through Exuma, so daytime walking in our bright, hot sun can be uncomfortable and cause sunburn. Be sure to bring sunscreen, suitable light clothing to cover up, sunglasses and a hat. The full kitchen has all the equipment a cook could desire, several sizes of pots, pans, cutlery, china, glassware, and plastic wares to use outside or on the beach. Salt, pepper, herbs and some condiments are in the pantry. If you need equipment or a pinch of anything, just ask Rosemary. There are extra sheets and towels, beach towels and totes to carry them; beach chairs and umbrella, coolers to take picnic food and drink to the beach or on a boat. A gas BBQ is ready in the garden to cook dinner – or a kettle type BBQ using wood or coal briquettes if you prefer. There is a laundry room with top-loading washing machine and dryer available for your use. Your apartment will be sanitized, immaculately clean and ready for occupation. Finally, your host, Rosemary Minns, is usually at home but will never intrude on your privacy. You are invited to visit her, however, if you have any problems or concerns about your apartment, tours, where or how to get things, or for suggestions to help make your visit as carefree and happy as possible. Halcyon Sky Apartment is the perfect secluded place to retreat after busy days sight-seeing, fishing, swimming and boating. Coming home to the fabulous view and cold drinks on your terrace might just turn out to be the best part of your Exuma vacation.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this apartment offer washers/dryers and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.
    Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers and hair dryers. This George Town apartment provides complimentary wireless Internet access.

      The Best!

      If you are looking or the perfect vacation rental on Exuma this is it. Perfect location in the middle of the island, hilltop with wonderful view and lovely breeze that kept the cottage cool (even through there is AC I you need it) and no bugs! The cottage has everything you need. We carried frozen food (highly recommend) and cooked regularly and had everything utensil needed. We rented a 16’ Hobie from Dallas at Exuma Sailing Club and a 17’ powerboat from Minn’s Water Sports and both were exceptional. The restaurants on the island were a little disappointing, and the price of everything there is at least double so, once again, bring food. Our host, Rosemary, was not intrusive at all but was very attuned to our needs and available to answer questions. We didn’t want to leave. If you are looking for a cottage with perfect private location and lovely host, this is it.

      5/5 Excellent

        Rosemary was a great host! She had everything that we needed to enjoy our vacation.

        Rosemary has thought of everything. She has chairs for the beach, beach towels, umbrella, sunscreen, snorkel equipment and bug spray. She had 2 cold beers waiting for us in the fridge. Also don’t make the same mistake we made and buy water. She has a Brita filter pitcher that was perfect for our water needs! We will definitely be back!

        5/5 Excellent

          Wonderful choice!

          This lovely cottage exceeded our expectations. The home is truly like 'home away from home', with everything one could imagine; from special coffee mugs, all cooking utensils, to sunglasses! The views are spectacular and the location is very centralized. It was easy to drive from the cottage to each side of Exuma. The owner Rosemary is the BEST of ALL! She is a lovely lady who is like a celebrity on the island! She provided excellent information about everything from rental car options and driving from the airport, to restaurants and options for activities. If we ever return to Exuma, we will definitely stay at Rosemary's cottage. We have visited several other islands in the Bahamas. Exuma is by all means a special, beautiful island with lovely people and breathtaking views. We were thankful we had reservations for 6 nights. We were busy but had plenty of time to relax. We highly recommend Exuma and Rosemary' s cottages.

            A Slice of Paradise

            We had a wonderful experience during our stay in the Sky Cottage ! The suite was spacious and modern. It was very tastefully decorated and well appointed. It was equipped with a number of amenities and supplies that one could not bring from home. The beach chairs and umbrella were very much appreciated. And made every day at the beach a great day ! We never used the air conditioning. There were numerous windows in every room. This allowed the gentle Caribbean breeze to cool the suite day and night. It was pretty clear that great thought was given to the design of the suite to maximize the outstanding views from every room. The location was quiet and private. Just a few minutes drive to Georgetown and centrally located on the island. Mornings were spent on the deck sipping coffee and enjoying the gorgeous views of the harbour and Stocking Island. Evenings were spent sipping a glass of wine and watching the shimmering lights of the boats anchored across the way. In between, the days were spent exploring the island and the many sights it had to offer. Rosemary was a most welcoming and gracious host. And a great resource for information about the island. She gave us a “local” perspective on which beaches to visit and where to eat. A big thank you to Rosemary for a most memorable seven day stay. We left feeling like we had known her a lifetime!

              Great Stay

              My wife and I had an absolutely great time staying on Exuma. Rosemary's property is beautiful and is everything you would expect. The view is gorgeous and such a great way to start your day on the island. House is clean and fresh and has everything a couple would need for their stay. I have traveled extensively and used Homeaway on many occasions and found the the "extras" that Rosemary offers goes above and beyond what most people do. All that AND she is a great host--gives you all the privacy you could want but also will spend time with you to give you some insight to the island. Could not have been happier. Thanks Rosemary!!
