YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

Planning a trip raises lots of questions. Rest assured that we are here to answer all of your inquiries. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that we think will be of use to you. Read below, and if you have any questions, please reach out: conchcayvilla@gmail.com

Exuma is a fairly remote island. With that, come some differences and challenges that may be different than your day-to-day life at home.

Power outages are a normal thing that could happen during your stay. In our experience, they typically happen 1-2x a week (or less) and last a couple hours (or less). We have flashlights available! We also provide a surge protector with battery back-up, so you can charge your phone or plug in a fan in the event of an outage.

Products are brought in via ferry once a week. This makes the cost of products higher than at home. Please be conscious of this fact while shopping or dining at restaurants. If things are unavailable--they'll be on the next ferry in. (:

Salty island air corrodes metal appliances very quickly! We do our best to keep the faucets, appliances and fixtures fresh. 

ISLAND THINGS

WHERE IS CONCH CAY VILLA LOCATED?

Conch Cay Villa is located in Palm Bay Villas on Great Exuma between the airport and Georgetown. If you need a GPS location, enter Hideaways Resort. We share a parking lot with the Hideaways and are located on the hill overlooking their property.  

 

From the airport, drive until you head down the hill to a large roundabout. take the second exit (essentially a right turn) onto Queen's Highway. You will pass Smitty's Grocery store on your left, then Napa Auto on your right. You will drive a few minutes before seeing the Hideaways (bright blue building) on your left. Turn in to the parking lot across the street. We have a private parking lot above the large parking lot available for your use.

HOW FAR TO THE BEACH?

Palm Bay Villas are located directly across the street from the Hideaways Resort and you have access to their gorgeous beach. A short 4 minute walk across Queens Highway leads you to the beach seen below with amazing snorkeling and views of Elizabeth Harbor. Walk two beaches down and you're at Jolly Hall beach--one of the most pristine beaches on Exuma!
