George Town, Great Exuma, Out Islands, Bahamas
Secluded but centrally located, Halcyon Sky Cottage is a 1-minute walk to the beach and an 8-minute walk to Georgetown, shops, restaurants, boat rental, straw market and water taxi to the outlying islands.

Sky cottage is specifically designed to accommodate guests visiting Halcyon, Rosemary Minns' Exuma home.

About the neighbourhood
The accommodation is centrally located on a hill one-minute's walk away from the beach, overlooking spectacular Elizabeth Harbour. It is a 6-minute's walk from Georgetown, hotels, restaurants, food stores, shops, straw market, boat rentals, water taxi dock and beaches. The unit is in the detached guest wing of Halcyon, the owner's home, on a private road, Sandy's Hill, in the 215-acre family estate now covered in native vegetation. Although easy to find the unit is completely private with its own entrance and has a 300 sq. ft. open deck. There is ample parking for cars but a car is not really necessary if you like to walk, as it is within easy distance of most local shopping, eating and entertainment. Exuma is famous for its beaches, the beauty of its crystalline waters and small cays (pronounced 'keys'). There are many tours and water sports available, for example, jet skiing, kayaking, sailing, small open boat rental for exploring the harbor, trips down the Exuma Cays to see the beauty of the islands and experience ' 007 Thunderball Cave' (a cave with entrance under the sea), swimming pigs, endangered Exuma iguanas, castaway camping or day picnics, scuba diving, snorkeling, wind surfing, kite boarding, paddle boarding, to name a few..
