The villa has two floors, which you wouldn’t mind sharing with other guests as there’s plenty of space to move around. The views of the ocean will take your breath away every morning, and the feel of the sand on your feet will immediately relax you. It only takes a short walk to reach the beach or some stores for your daily needs.

6. A quaint, laid back apartment at Great Exuma (from USD 277)

This accommodation is a simple, laid back home that is cozy on the inside and bright and quaint on the outside. You will love staying both indoors and outdoors! The house is located on Great Exuma, five minutes away from Georgetown, and within walking distance to Exuma’s finest beaches. The rent is not too expensive, as the owners want the travelers to spend more on adventures.

The hosts also own a local tour company, which is a big bonus if you’re planning to arrange an outdoor adventure–they’ll take care of all tour-related details.

7. Private, beachside house in a small community

Don’t we love the idea of staying in a home facing the beach and living in a small community where you can just be yourself? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll experience and more when you book the vacation rental. It’s a private, beachfront house that will allow you to enjoy the waters, the breeze, perfect sunsets, star-filled skies, and the list goes on. Imagine outdoor living meets laid back community. This quirky mix of vibes will make for a unique travel adventure. It is ideal for big families and group of friends. The Exuma airport is just 15 minutes away, and other shops and restaurants won’t be hard to reach, too. Of course, no island experience would be complete without exploring the local bars along the beach so be sure to check that out!

8. Lovely home in a central location

Let’s admit it: the view of the sea is perfect wherever you are in the Bahamas. But to match it with a lovely home is a different thing. You will find an array of choices for that perfect getaway, but you might find this property a stand out for many reasons. For one, its location. It is close to three of the best restaurants/grills in all of Exuma: Santanas, Tropic Breeze, and Turquoise Key. To add onto that, you’re just a boat ride away from the must-see swimming pigs. Second, the surreal surroundings. It’s one of the most peaceful spots in Exuma, especially that it’s close to one of the 10 top beaches in the world: the Tropic of Cancer.

9. Cozy cottage tucked in a beautiful, quiet beach (ideal for couples)

There’s nothing more romantic than spending days and nights with your loved one in a cozy cottage tucked right in the middle of a beautiful beach. It’s like you’re on honeymoon all over again! There’s no Internet connection, which won’t really matter if your travel goals include spending quality (and undisturbed) time together. You can bring lounge chairs to the beach to feel the ocean breeze and get sun-kissed skin. Stroll along the private stretch of the beach or do some kayaking or paddling for a refreshing adventure. It’s the ideal studio-type apartment for solo travelers or couples on a getaway.

Exuma's undeniable charm

As mentioned by one Airbnb house owner, part of Exuma’s charm is its rawness, and the fact that it remains undeveloped. This way, nature is preserved and commercialism doesn’t get in the way of its beauty. You will surely appreciate this unique quality of the island, most especially when you stay in a house that is equally raw, refreshing, and just pure laid back–exactly the houses we’ve featured on this list. So go ahead and pick your home. Let the charm of Exuma captivate you now… and again.
