Upscale 4-Bedroom House Just Steps to the Beach
Make the most of your Exuma vacation by booking a stay in the colorful, newly constructed home aptly named Beach Blanket. Owned by model/actress Jena Sims, this 2,600 square-foot house offers four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and three outdoor seating areas. Perfect for families, small groups, or individuals looking to relax in spacious comfort, three of the bedrooms offer Queen-size beds, while the fourth room has two Twin-size beds. The Master bedroom is located on the main floor with an en-suite bath (shower only) and a sliding door leading to a porch. Upstairs is a second Master bedroom, which features a private balcony and an en-suite bath with double vanities and a separate shower and bathtub. The additional upstairs bedrooms share another full bath that also has a separate shower and tub.
Beach Blanket is located on Sandy Lane, nicely landscaped and just 200 feet from the sparking, turquoise waters lapping the shoreline at Jimmy Hill Beach. Enjoy the three-mile stretch of beach for sunbathing, snorkeling, and long, lazy walks. Paddleboards and other floating toys are available at the house for guests to enjoy. Prepare a delicious meal in the bright, well-equipped open kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher and ice-maker. A separate wet bar with a mini-fridge is located just off the kitchen—perfect for evening drinks! Gather in the living room with its ample array of comfortable seating and a nearby half-bathroom. There is also an outdoor gas grill for cooking in the fresh sea air. The house further offers a washer and dryer, vacuum cleaner, cleaning supplies, kitchen utensils and provisions (including spices and condiments), a coffee maker, and a toaster.
Exuma International Airport is just a few minutes from Beach Blanket, and George Town is only 15 minutes by car, making it easy to discover local shopping and dining. There are lots to do on the beautiful island of Great Exuma, including fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, visiting the famous swimming pigs, and touring the Exuma Cays. As the island is only 37 miles long, you can explore by car all day at your leisure and be back in time for dinner. Take a water taxi across Elizabeth Harbor over to Stocking Island for lunch or drinks at the lively Chat ‘N’ Chill beach bar, and sample a variety of local cuisine at the Fish Fry food shacks.

My friends and I recently stayed at The Beach Blanket in Exuma. The house is so bright and beautiful! Centralized location and the airport is no more than 5 minutes away. Every room has view of the Bahamas Blue water. Just a short walk took us to what felt like a private beach! Whether you want to stay in and hangout by the beach or go out with the locals and explore the island, Exuma has so much to offer. Exuma Watersports took us on a full day tour where we saw over half the Exuma Cays, feed The Swimming Pigs, swam with sharks, and snorkeled. The entire trip was breathtaking! We will definitely be planning another trip to The Beach Blanket soon!
We just got back from staying in "The Beach Blanket" for 4 days and it was AMAZING! I've never seen a beach so beautiful in my life. The water is straight out of a photo and the house was only a stones throw from the beach, like 50 yards. The airport is only a quick 5 minute ride and once at the house we were blown away at how nice everything was. The locals were great and we enjoyed karaoke, local cuisine and plenty of relaxing drinks. On the second day we took a chartered boat to swim with sharks, snorkel and feed the swimming pigs. It was amazing!
I’ve stayed at the Beach Blanket twice now and TRUST ME you will fall in love. You will never ever want to leave. After touring the house and the private beach, I was tempted to throw my passport into the ocean. Look no further, because the Beach Blanket is the most stunning, relaxing and tranquil place that you will find. A short drive from down town and the friendly locals will have you wanting to come back again. The only difficult part was having to choose between the four rooms! Every room has a color theme and the décor is straight out of a magazine. You will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to be back!!!
