Tar Bay Beach is 3 miles of Paradise... stay in your own private beachfront home on the island of Great Exuma, in The Bahamas. This stunning , newly renovated home has all of the amenities you need and then some, to have the most relaxing, invigorating holiday of your life.
The Exuma Cays are some of the most beautiful of the 700 islands that make up the Bahamas, and are located just a one hours flight from Miami, Florida. The Exuma's are made up of 365 cays, some are inhabited, many are not, and each is breathtaking in its own right. Just a five-minute ride from the Georgetown Airport and you will be stepping off of the patio onto a two-mile stretch of an unspoiled, baby powder, white sand beach; and gazing into the crystal clear turquoise waters of one of the most sought after beaches in Exuma, and in fact…all of the Bahamas.

Located in Silver Beach Estates-Tar Bay, Turtle View has been redesigned and totally renovated to incorporate a beach side feel with an eclectic mix of furnishings from Bali, India, the U.S. and The Bahamas. As this was originally designed to be a second home for the owners, no attention to detail has been spared. Upon completion, the owners were so thrilled over the outcome, that they decided to share their beachfront retreat with you.
This exquisite property will not disappoint!

About 5 miles to the east is the newly opened butcher shop called Prime Meats that has an incredible array of items to cook on the beachside BBQ. The owner will make you chicken cordon blu, or stuffed pork, among other items to pop in the oven or put on the grill. Just stop by and place your order. A little further east is a convenience store and a liquor store. The town of Georgetown is another 4 miles east. Besides finding hotels and restaurants along this route to town (that will be listed in our welcome booklet at the house) you will find a larger grocery store in town, as well as 2 banks with ATM machines, tourist shops with lovely Bahamian made gifts, additional restaurants, and the straw market. There are some lovely drives to see many of the amazing sites and the beautiful beaches of Exuma. The drive to Little Exuma across the little one car bridge will take you to some great restaurants as well as the Tropic of Cancer Beach and some World Heritage Sites. The 15 minute ferry to Stocking island to sit in the water with the Rays and feed them, while having a drink and a meal at the famous Chat N' Chill beach restaurant is another great way to spend a day. And it would not be a visit to Exuma with our seeing and being in the water with our famous swimming pigs. Spending your holiday in a beautiful home on the beach....There's lots to do in Exuma, or nothing to do in Exuma...the good news is that the choice is yours!

Meet The Host

Living in Nassau, The Bahamas for 33 years has given us the chance to see the real beauty of The Bahamas, which is the family islands. They are smaller, friendly, each is unique in its own right. The Exuma's are second to none in our book. After traveling around to most of the Family Islands, we kept coming back to Exuma. We knew it was where we wanted to be.The color of the water changes from turquoise, to sapphire, and to indigo all at the same time. The sand bars where you can walk out forever up to your ankles at low tide, collecting sand dollars, are truly enchanting, and the sea life ( turtles, lobster, conch, and tropical fish) is just beautiful. No wonder the astronaut Scott Kelly said, when looking down on Exuma, that it was "the most beautiful place from space", and "The Bahamas never fails to impress", because it is indeed truly spectacular!

Getting around

Turtle View is located a quick 5 minute drive from Exuma International Airport. You can take a taxi there if you do not want to rent a car, although there are a few car rentals companies on the island, one of them being right across the street from the airport. It is recommended to rent a car, even if it is for a few days to see the sights on Exuma, and drive to Little Exuma. Amazingly, for a small island, there are some interesting things to see and restaurants to go to.
