About the property

Sleeps 12 - 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms On Its Own Private Beach!

This 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Villa has beautiful oceanfront views and a private beach. You will enjoy beautifully appointed bathrooms with tile showers, separate tubs and double vanities that have been completely renovated in 2016. There is a very large fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dining area with seating for 12. You can also choose to eat outdoors at the table on the covered porch.

Relax with family and friends in the large den with comfortable seating while admiring the ocean views. Watch TV if you find time away from the water. Wifi, Netflix, Apple TV are also included. Rest assured with the recent addition of a second air conditioning unit you will be very comfortable in every room of the house.

(not something you always find in island locations). Enjoy the large covered patio while relaxing on chaise lounges or rocking chairs.

What sets The Cut Pearl apart is the spacious luxury and views. Our new patio and covered pavilion add more vantage points of the breathtaking views of the bluest water on earth. This is the most relaxing place in the world free from crowds and distractions. The beach fluctuates according to the tides and the winds.

4 Kayaks are provided with snorkel gear and life jackets. Spend your day fishing, diving, snorkeling, boating, hiking or just exploring the most incredible beaches you will ever see. If you weren't able to book activities in advance our property manager can assist you to make your stay the most memorable one. They can help you book various excursions you will never forget!

The manager can also arrange onsite Bahamian prepared meals in the villa. Menu available upon request.

About Andy and Loren Kern

Loren and I fell in love with Exuma during our first visit in 2012. After 5 visits we decided we had truly found our favorite vacation spot. The Cut Pearl found us and we decided we wanted to share this piece of heaven with others.

Andy and Loren Kern purchased this villa in 2015

Why Andy and Loren Kern chose Forbes Hill

The Cut Pearl in Little Exuma is a hidden jewel. The property sits on the most secluded and beautiful ocean spot we have ever seen. The waters of the Bahamas are so clear and beautiful in every shade of blue. The people of Exuma are so hospitable and gracious. They host people from all over the world and no one is a stranger.

What makes this villa unique

The beach location is secluded and very private. The most beautiful beaches in the world are found in the Exumas. This beach is amazing and diverse with the softest sand and beautiful rock formations. The aqua blue waters will devour your thoughts and make you smile.

The property manager can arrange a private chef to prepare meals at the villa.

Paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

The Cut Pearl was our best vacation rental in the Bahamas. We have traveled to many islands and stayed in rentals, but this was the best. The house is perfection, and the only thing to surpass it is the beach which is pristine, undeveloped and almost private.

The house has everything you would need...comfortable beds with quality linens (very difficult to find in the Bahamas), a fully stocked kitchen with all the extra bells and whistles (my husband is a chef and we have yet to see a kitchen as well stocked as The Cut Pearl), all the beach equipment you could want (snorkels, kayaks, bikes, beach chairs, etc. and all is very good condition), potable water with plenty of hot water and decent pressure, and 2 washers and dryers (to make cleaning beach towels and clothes quick and efficient).

If that wasn't enough, the staff are exceptional. Ms. Judy made us a 4 course dinner one night, which was delicious. If I were to do something different, I would have booked her for several nights. The Cut Pearl is on little Exuma so travelling into town for groceries took some time and many of the stores had limited produce and resources. Hiring Judy for several nights (who cooks, serves and cleans, with plenty of leftovers for the next day) would have been much easier. Theo took us out fishing on his beautiful boat and cleaned and prepared an amazing ceviche at the end of the day. He was very helpful with recommendations and can arrange any boating or fishing expedition for up to 10 people. We had booked other excursions through different vendors ahead of time, but if we were to do it again, we would book with Theo the whole time. He was very helpful, trustworthy and took care of the house and us during our whole trip.

We did get eaten up by "no-seeums" quite a bit (and that has happened in every island in the Bahamas we've been to). I would recommend bringing skin so soft, baby oil and cortisone will save your trip!

We will definitely be back to this beautiful gem.

Beautiful home and perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cut Pearl in mid-February. The house is beautiful - nicely decorated with the best stocked kitchen we have ever found in a rental home! Owner Andy was the best host we have ever encountered, helping us with some questions ahead of time and during our stay that were of great help to us. That was above and beyond the call of duty, in my experience and opinion but it made a big difference in our experience. The winds were very high when we were there, so we did not get to enjoy the deck very much, but the "lazy river" flats down the road were wonderful - make sure you ask about them! Winkie the caretaker took great care of us and was instantly responsive when we had a problem. We did find there were not many restaurants open for dinner and you have to actually call and check hours - nothing online is accurate, so you need to be prepared to do at least some of your own cooking or eating at the resorts (which is never our favorite.) Loved Exuma and the Cut Pearl very much and would highly recommend it to anyone!

A Beautiful Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a friend getting married at one of the houses close to the Cut Pearl so we rented the house for a week and had an amazing time. The house is as advertised amazing views and has everything you need including kayaks which we took to some of near-by islands. The team that supports the house did a great job taking car of us as well arringing rides, boat outings and a lovely dinner for our friends. Thanks for everything!

True rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious home with excellent amenities (all the usual ones plus 2 washers/dryers, swim noodles, beach chairs) and a gorgeous, wide view. Be sure to walk over at low tide to the beach just north of the one behind the house. It is larger and more secluded. Communication and coordination with Andy and Winky were seamless. Thank you!

Wonderful home & location

  • 5 of 5

The Cut Pearl was one of the nicest homes we have rented, ever. We stayed there mid March, 2017. The furnishings were top notch, the layout of the home is so nice and perfect for 4 couples to have plenty of privacy, the kitchen had everything we needed and more, the outside furniture was great, and we loved the beach and quiet area. I really can't say enough good things, it really was awesome. We didn't use the kayaks, but did use the snorkel gear and one of their 3 nice sized coolers on our Minn's boat day (saw starfish, sand dollars, conch shells, queen conch, fish, etc.). Winky stopped by a couple of times to check on us, and we met his son Theo (Teo?) who was set to captain our Minn's boat for us, but because the boat we rented had a max capacity of 8, that fell through. He gave us some good tips though and helped us find the right day to rent a boat (it was pretty windy most of our 5 days on the island). I would stay in this house again if we have the opportunity. It's in an area of maybe 5 homes right on the beach. The views are amazing, and the water was wonderful for swimming. The kitchen is very large and accommodated several of us working in there at the same time. We had no wifi - no fault to the owner as it was out pretty much all over the island. We did have a generator kick in several times while the neighbors lost power. A/C and ceiling fans kept the house plenty cool, beds comfortable, huge closets with plenty of hangers, bathrooms gorgeous, beautifully decorated, etc. Thanks much Andy & Loren, it was above and beyond WONDERFUL!
