Welcome home to HighTrees, your own private beach house with 150ft of beach front and private dock on Hoopers Bay in the island of Exuma in the Bahamas. HighTrees is located on the most beautiful bay in Exuma and just ten-minute drive from the airport, Georgetown shops, bars, boat hire and restaurants.
Hidden from the road by a winding driveway through high casuarinas, you will enter through the secluded courtyard into the main house which boasts an open floor plan, twenty-foot cathedral ceilings and huge mahogany French doors opening onto the sixty-five-foot long private beach deck with views of your private dock, landscaped beach garden and the crystal clear waters of Hoopers Bay where your can swim and interact daily with your own family of sea turtles.
The main house features custom built state of the art kitchen with high end appliances, wine cooler, ice maker, marble counter tops, and a pass-through window to the deck for outdoor dining or to just sit at and absorb the view. It is fully equipped with everything you would want to find in a kitchen and includes a walk-in pantry. It is perfect for anything from preparing holiday meals for a large family to seasoning your fresh catch with herbs picked from your own courtyard garden after a day on the sea.
Both the dining room and the deck offer handmade dining tables that seat ten, panoramic views of the ocean, easy access to the kitchen and dinner music courtesy of our Sonos music system.
The large master bedroom, with private deck entrance and hand made king bed, offers views of the ocean and dock, a large closet space, Smart TV and a custom en-suite bathroom with free standing tub. You can wrap up a day of snorkeling or fishing under the Master Bedroom’s west facing outdoor shower while watching the sun begin to set before retreating to the deck with a cocktail to finish off the final moments of daylight.
After dinner you can close the night out on the deck or sink into the oversized, overstuffed handmade linen sofas and arm chairs in the living room and enjoy a movie on Netflix, read a book, play poker with our much loved poker set or just lie back and enjoy a killer view in the comfort of air-conditioning after a day in the sun.
The Loft, our young and fun addition to HighTrees, offers an elevated secret hideaway inside the main house. Imagine an indoor tree house with a bird’s eye view of the living and dining area through large secured windows. It is accessed by a interior staircase just off of the kitchen and is perfect for a slumber party or a night of video games, board games, storytelling or marathon movie watching after the grown-ups go to bed.
We have made doing laundry as painless as possibly by equipping our large laundry room with high capacity, quick-as-a-flash washer and dryer. The windows, when opened, catch the most fabulous flower scented cross-draft imaginable. So, fabulous in fact, that you may start looking forward to laundry day.
Stroll through the landscaped courtyard with herb garden and discover two additional private en-suite bedrooms; one king and one queen. Both have cathedral ceilings, walk-in closets, and coral stone bathrooms.
HighTrees has central air-conditioning in the Living, Dining, Kitchen, Laundry and Loft areas and each bedroom has its own mini-split air-conditioning unit. There is wireless internet, satellite TV, 3 Smart TV’s and Sonos music system.
Provided with the house is transportation to and from Georgetown airport, paddle board, kayak, snorkeling equipment, sun beds, umbrellas and beach towels. It is recommended you hire a car for your stay and there is ample parking, and exclusive use of the private boat dock and boat lift.
