Water View Villa

"Swept Away" is a stunning Bahamas vacation rental home on Staniel Cay, in the Exumas. The Exumas are one of the more spectacular "out Islands" in the tropical waters of the Bahamas. Your circular villa boasts incredible, 360-degree views of the island and the surrounding multi-hued, azure blue waters. It is a beautiful and comfortable private getaway for enjoying island life.

The Villa

See the beautiful blue water of the tropical Bahamas from every window in "Swept Away." This incredible hilltop rental has a commanding 360 degree view of the island, its secluded beaches and the beautiful blue sea all around! The spacious deck is a nice place to kick back and take in the dazzling scene as you sip a margarita or your favorite glass of wine. The unique 15-side round design of "Swept Away" allows open, yet functional space.

The Kitchen

The modern, fully equipped kitchen is opposite the dining area. You will find everything you need for cooking and entertaing in this stylish space. Every effort has been made to supply you with the tools and equipment you will need for cooking up that fresh snapper or grouper you just brought home from the boat. Locally grown vegetables like our sought after fresh tomatoes are always a nice accompaniment!

Living in Style

The furnishings and artistic decor reflect comfortable, air conditioned upscale island living. The living room is comfortable and roomy, offering views and a relaxing atmosphere for you and your guests. "Swept Away" is one of the more stylish Bahamas Rentals you will find, and the decor is vibrant yet relaxing, helping to inspire your creative juices if you so choose, or help you relax and watch the gentle waves lap the shore all around.

Fantastic views and a great house to stay at - We had a wonderful time at Staniel. Too little time and too much to do, of course. The beauty of the area was complemented by the wonderful people we met. "Swept Away" (the house), with it's breathtaking views, was beyond our expectation. Besides being beautiful, it was very comfortable, and fully equipped. We will most definitely be back!"

Great house, beautifully furnished with amazing views! The house was very comfortable fully equipped with everything that you could possibly want. 360 degree spectacular views! We absolutely loved it!

Perfect for two couples - We rented the home for a week and it is just the right size for two couples. Great views all around. Easy to relax in. Kitchen a bit short on dinner knives, wine glasses & coffee cups, but otherwise fully stocked. Barry was very solicitous that we enjoy our stay -- and we did! Lovely island, great community and welcoming people too.

I stayed there for a week, and the accommodations were superb! Everything was in working order and very clean. The views were awesome and could not ask for a better place. Will most definitely be staying there again. Internet and TV were a big plus!

We wanted to write and say what a wonderful time we had at Swept Away. My wife and I spent a week there in May of 2014, and we were so glad we made the decision to stay. From the moment we arrived Barry and his helpers made our visit wonderful, he is a very gracious host. We were met at the airport with a golf cart, zipped off to the house, and from the moment we stepped into Swept Away we knew we would love it.
