About Pam

I have been coming to Exuma since 1969. It is still the wonderful island that I discovererd that year. Sure, a few things have changed. Instead of drinking Tang like the astronauts, we can now buy orange juice. Instead of driving to George Town to make a phone call, we now have land line phones, cell phones and internet! But the charm of the island remains the same. The water is still turquoise, the beaches still pristine, the Exumians still friendly and kind hearted. Am I biased? Probably! Do I love it? Yes! And you will, too, after spending time here.

Why Pam chose George Town

Whereas many of the homes are located right on the Queen's Highway, which runs along the island on the east side, our home is located in Old Hooper's Bay. Old Hooper's Bay is conveniently situated just 5 miles from George Town, BUT it is a 30 acre compound reached by our private road from the highway. You must drive in, up and over a significant verdant hill to reach the main section of the compound. This 1/4 mile distance provides a luxurious insulator from the traffic on the Queen's Highway. Plus our views of Hooper's Bay and the Atlantic beyond are spectacular! The private road deters wanderers. The Old Hooper's Beach Park is shared by the 9 homes in the compound. No worries about over-crowding! We are very blessed!

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the tree house. Close to the beach and the little park down by the water. House is very well equipped and super clean! Next time we visit the Exuma we definitely would love to stay here again.

Favorite place on the island!

  • 5 of 5

This Tree House packs a lot of punch! Very well thought out and it lacks for nothing. The neighborhood is lovely with lots of vegetation and it’s own private beach. The area is very convenient to all the amenities the island has to offer as it is right in the middle. You are close to the airport and Georgetown as well as restaurants in either direction.

The home itself is very clean and bright with lots of Bahamian flavor! Washer and dryer is a huge plus.

Communication with the owner is swift and timely and they have left a binder in the house full of information and their recommendations. Don’t miss out on the Tree is a gem!

Breezy and Serene

  • 5 of 5

We loved the treehouse. The screened windows and the view of the water and treetops command relaxation. About a 5 minute walk down to the private beach to read in hammocks, swim and play in the sand.

Beautiful, private and laid back. 6 stars our of 5

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Treehouse for 8 nights in December/January. It is beautiful, private and laid back. Great location, private access beach and the house itself is simple but extremely well equipped with a kitchen, air con, wifi, local phone and everything you need to be comfortable.

Perfect for any couple visiting Exuma. Pam the owner is fantastic to deal with and gives you great tips for the island. Highly recommended. Can't think of a single fault.
