Located in: George Town
*Our property and island was NOT affected by Hurricane Dorian*

Halcyon Garden Apartment 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 large covered porch. 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 290 square feet of covered porch for outdoor dining and lounging – a total of 965 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. Garden 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 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 Garden Apartment is the perfect secluded place to retreat after busy days sight-seeing, fishing, swimming and boating. Coming home to the colorful garden, view, and cold drinks and dinner on your shady porch might just turn out to be the best part of your Exuma vacation.
