We stayed 10 nights in the Papaya House. Absolutely Stunning. The Beach in front of the house was like a post card. Luke warm, calm, turquoise and Clearwater. The Sand so soft! The house is perfect.

The house was perfect and the beach was great. Would only recommend a portable blower to help keep sand off the patio and out of the house, but other than that, it was roomy and clean with lots of things to do on the beach - kayaks, snorkel gear, beach toys, etc. My only complaint was that very few places...

About the neighbourhood
Papaya House is directly on spectacular Love Beach on Little Exuma, in Forbes Hill. It's a very quiet beach with only 3 other properties on it! White sand, turquoise water and great swimming. We have two double ocean kayaks available for guests' use. There are several small cays within a short kayak ride for exploring, including Pigeon Cay, which is a national reserve for ring tail lizards, and a couple of tiny cays with beaches. Closest is about 20 minutes' paddle. The house is about 20 minutes by car from George Town, where most of the shopping is, and about 40 minutes from the airport. There is only one main road on Exuma, so the house is easy to find! You will most likely need a car, but if you choose not to rent one, taxis are available, and we have an on-island proper... more
