As previously mentioned, we weren’t able to land in Staniel Cay (Central Exuma) as planned last week, so we diverted further south and landed at Exuma International.
Upon arriving at Exuma International, we met a lovely woman named Deatra at Odyssey Aviation. She was curious to know what brought us to Great Exuma, and when we told her it was our honeymoon she immediately got on the phone and started making arrangements for our stay on her island. Deatra wouldn’t tell us where she booked our stay. She just gave us a bottle of rum and hurried us off to the taxi and told us we could thank her later.
Our stay for the next two nights…? The luxurious Grand Isle Resort nestled along side of Emerald Bay. W-O-W! The private villas are available for ownership and include 18-hole golf course access, spa, marina, beach….and the best part…your very own garage complete with your very own golf cart!
We stayed in a one bedroom villa. It had a full (beautiful!) kitchen stocked with every KitchenAid appliance you can imagine, washer/dryer, jacuzzi tub and stand up shower, a 60″ flat screen TV in the living area and a 42″ in the bedroom, and of course a balcony with an amazing view of Emerald Bay!
Deatra definitely had to pull some strings to get us into this place on our budget. We are forever grateful! Cheers to Deatra!
Next stop…Pittstown Point, Crooked Island.
