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. The house is not really suitable for toddlers and pets may be considered. Please consult with the host. **Lastly we can not guarantee refunds due to Covid related issues but folks can use their credit to rebook at a later date if need be.

Simply spectacular!
This house is perched high enough to have sweeping 360 views - you’ll see sunrise over the Atlantic and sunset over the Caribbean. A wraparound porch gives you options to sit and sip at any time of the day. The house is sunny and bright, tastefully decorated in beach colors, and sparkling clean. The beds are comfy and the linens top notch. Like most places on Exuma, you’ll need a car - but you’ll want one anyway to visit amazing beaches and friendly casual dining spots. Margaret is a wonderful host and very attentive to any needs. Cannot recommend highly enough!

OUTSTANDING ...110%+++...!!
As the title says, Hummingbird House was absolutely outstanding..! We were there for four weeks. The house is central to most things on the island...grocery stores, fabulous beaches and restaurants. It sits up on a bit of a ridge that allows spectacular views of both coasts from the upper warp around deck...great place for morning coffee and late afternoon drink(s). The home was VERY well appointed...two bedrooms, both ensuite with comfortable beds. It was well equipped in the kitchen and had a nice selection of books should you decide not to gaze at the scenery outside. Wifi was perfect... The lush grounds were very nice as well with Bouganvillea, Hibiscus and Frangipani around the house. I can't say enough about our stay. Margaret (owner) was exceptional as well with any questions we had...rest assured you will be in good hands when renting her place. This was our fourth trip to Exuma and we will be back...in fact...we have already booked a month for next year. ...HIGHLY recommend Hummingbird...

Lovely house with fantastic view
This is a fantastic house with everything onboard needed to make a stay a wonderful experience. It suits a family just as fine as two couples or a small group. The house is lovely decorated, super clean and it’s location just south of Georgetown is perfect to explore the island. Margaret is the perfect host: Extremely helpful, super-friendly and with plenty of insider tipps on hand to make your stay in Exuma the time of your life. Highly recommended!

Hummingbird House
We stayed here for 5 weeks and had a wonderful time. A beautiful house,up on a hill, so always a breeze and not many bugs. Stunning 360o views of Elizabeth harbour on one side and bonefish flats on the other. Bedrooms down stairs and living accommodation on the first floor, a perfect arrangement the bedrooms were cool and the views on the balcony are great making a great place any time of day, you can be in the sun or the shade enjoying the near constant breeze just by picking where you sit. The kitchen had all the equipment you would need even a grinder for coffee. Margaret the owner was a super host, she kept in contact and was super helpful. The housekeeper calls in to refresh the house and the caretaker called several times to check the gas and tank and tidy the garden. Super location 10 minutes from Georgetown another 5 to Jolly Hall beach Pretty Molly about 20 minutes, the road up to the house is rough but perfectly drivable we did it with 4 people and 5 gallons of water in a little Nissan with out a problem. We loved our time here and can't wait to come back, wonderful friendly people, beautiful beaches, fantastic weather hopefully we will be back in two years. I can't recommend Hummingbird enough it has everything going for it and hummingbirds of course look after the feeders and you will be rewarded by watching them feed and have little fights. Thank you Margaret for a wonderful stay and we will return soon.

Beautiful yet again!
We stayed for 10 days in the beautiful Hummingbird House. Margaret was very helpful sending us a list of things to do/ places to eat and lovely beaches to visit. She was superb and even replaced a dishwasher for us as it had packed up whilst we were there. Huge thanks to Lolo who installed it he was a lovely guy. The views from the house are unbelievable- worth staying for that alone, the house is very cosy and I could stay there forever. If you ever go to Exuma this is the only place I would stay- it is in the middle of everything and not far from everything. The road is a little bumpy so hire a 4x4- we got one from Airport Car Rental. All in all a fantastic holiday and was so nice to come back again- thank you Margaret

Happiest place!
Hummingbird Cottage was the perfect base came for exploring Great Exuma. Our family of 4 had plenty of space in this comfortable, well-stocked house. Morning and evening, we lived on the upstairs covered decks catching a breeze and watching the birds. The owners are super-attentive and helpful. A catered supper from the house keeper is a not-to-be-missed treat.

AMAZING HOUSE
We just came home from an amazing vacation in exuma. We stayed in the Hummingbird house for 12 days. It has a wrap around porch that gives you views from all sides. The house has everything you may need to feel right at home. It is in the perfect location to visit either side of the island. It is quiet and comfortable. The hosts go above and beyond to help in any way possible. I have stayed in a lot of places and have never had the communication and support like Margaret gave us. It comes with a dishwasher, washer, dryer and plenty of pans and dishes, dish soap,, dishwasher tabs ect.. Towels for the beach. I understand why others say the book the Hummingbird house then their airline tickets. Trust me, you won't be disappointed if you stay here.

The 360 degree views make this one of the best rentals on the island.
The house is perfectly set up for two couples or a family group. We enjoyed shopping in town and cooking at home for most meals. Gorgeous, intimate beach’s are 7 miles away. A day at Tropic of Cancer beach with lunch at Santana’s Bar and Grill is memorable.

Idyllic
This is a beautiful house so thoughtfully & lovingly decorated. Spacious open living on upper floor with the wrap around balconies with peaceful & fabulous views. Loved to watch the hummingbirds drinking & feeding. Very comfortable, clean & well maintained. All appliances needed for cooking. The local cell phone was really useful for booking trips etc. Would definitely return- only minor prob is the roads from main road to house very rugged & hence 4x 4 / suv needed. Thank you Margaret & Mike.
