The islands of Great Exuma and Little Exuma are located in the Central Bahamas and extend North West / South East for a distance of 90 miles. The main town is George Town located halfway along the Queens Highway and Hartswell is a 15 minutes drive South East from George Town and close to the bridge joining the two islands.
The Cottages are located off the main road, on a hilltop, and the property extends down to Moriah Harbour and the offshore Moriah Cay.
Moriah Cay is a marine sanctuary, and a deserted, unspoilt island with miles of soft sand deserted beaches, lakes, and mangroves and is a nursery for small fish and turtles. Valerie has kayaks for you to explore this pristine area.
