MeltAway Cottage: Water Front with Spectacular Views - Rest, Relax and Enjoy!

Located in: George Town
Your worries will disappear as you drive into the yard and catch your first glimpse of the turquoise waters directly in front of MeltAway Cottage (a non-smoking property). We are located just 8 minutes by car east of George Town in Masters Harbour, Bahama Sound 11 West.

The house is situated directly on the water’s edge across from an expansive sandbar (bonefish flats). Our two-story house has a spacious open floor plan that includes a 200 sq.ft. screened porch as well as a partially shaded patio area. From either vantage point you can greet the day peacefully with your morning coffee/tea and kick back and relax at day’s end while enjoying a beverage, grilling a steak and marveling at the spectacular sunsets as you recount the day’s adventures.

MeltAway Cottage is a fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2-bath home with an additional loft space that can be used for sleeping or storage. We just installed new hurricane proof/low-e windows throughout the house (April 2018). There is no air-conditioning in the loft space but there is a wall fan. The linens/pillows are new and or are constantly replaced. Bedrooms have newly installed ceiling fans as well as air conditioning. The twin beds upstairs have new “Leesa” mattresses (April 2018). Closets have plenty of hangers and storage space for your personal effects. We just put a new air conditioning system in the main living area (kitchen/living room). This system also helps to cool down the open loft area. The kitchen has stainless appliances (large French door fridge/freezer, microwave, stove/oven) with a complete set of cookware and small appliances (coffee maker, kettle, waffle maker, toaster, blender, mini-chopper). The dining area can seat up to twelve people (8 comfortably at the table when extended and 4 on bar stools at the islands). There is also a Weber BBQ in the screened porch with utensils for your grilling needs. We also just installed new ceiling fans in the screened porch for those days when we don't get a breeze.

We have recently connected to city water and have a fresh water cistern available as back-up.

The partially shaded patio in front of the house has lounge chairs and a hammock. There are four kayaks available for your use (1 single and 2 tandem Hobie kayaks and an Ocean kayak that is specifically suited for young adults. Life jackets for adults are also available – 1 XL and 2 ML. We also added an inflatable stand-up paddle board (SUP) for your enjoyment.

We have telephone (up and down), internet and cable (CBS4, FOX, NBC, ABC plus 2 Bahamian Stations). The internet is not as high-speed as you are used to at home but it is just fine for checking emails and Skyping family and friends. We also have Apple TV and a hard drive with a wide selection of movies for all ages that you are welcome to use. There is an IPOD dock available so please bring your music from home. We tend to listen to internet radio through the TV. We also have several games for the family (Yahtzee, monopoly and scrabble). Guests have started leaving books so we also have a small library.

You will find everything you need for your stay in and around George Town - grocery stores, a fantastic butcher shop (Prime Island Meats), restaurants/bars, liquor stores, bank machines (Scotia Bank/Royal Bank), gas station and you can purchase local souvenirs at the straw market and other small stores in town.

Exuma offers an abundance of sun, sand and sea as well as incredibly friendly people. Stretch out on a lounge chair and catch some rays or take a dip in the ocean in front of the house to start your day. Depending on the tide you can walk or kayak to the sandbar across from the house. There is also decent snorkeling along the shoreline so bring your gear. After our visit from Hurricane Matthew there's no telling what treasures you will find in the channel!

There are many spectacular beaches on both Great and Little Exuma that are accessible by car (a rental car is a must on the island). We have beach chairs, parasail beach blankets with tent pegs and beach towels that you can pack in the car as well as a few beach toys for your stay.

Being on or close to the water is what probably drew you to Exuma. Hop in the kayaks and paddle the shoreline or venture across to the nearby islands at high tide. The sand flats to the west are excellent for bone fishing. You can also arrange to have a guide with a boat pick you up right at the house. Renting a boat in George Town (Minns) also allows access to all the beaches of Elizabeth Harbor and Stocking Island. Sightseeing, adventure tours (swim with the pigs, visit the iguanas, snorkel in underwater caves at Thunderball Grotto) and SCUBA diving trips can be also arranged in town.

If you enjoy daily walks/running you can lace up your sneakers and safely walk/run the many roads in the neighbourhood or with the proper footwear explore the rocky shoreline. Folks are friendly so introduce yourself along the way.

If golf is your passion call and book a tee time and head north approximately 16 miles to Sandals Emerald Bay Resort and The Emerald Reef Golf Course (designed by Greg Norman).

A detailed PDF document will be provided to you that will give you tips on what to bring, detailed directions to various beaches and contact phone numbers to assist you in booking excursions. We will also be happy to answer your questions if you want to email or call us
