Here, nature outnumbers man, coastlines remain flawless and private homes play host to some of the world’s most famous stars. The Exumas truly are the ultimate escape.




The People

The people of Staniel Cay island are its strongest attribute. With friendly personalities, broad smiles and proud Bahamian heritage, the people of Staniel Cay are the unique element that makes this special community an experience that draws visitors year after year. It is common (even expected) to smile and raise a hand in greeting when you pass people along the road. While you can enjoy as much privacy as you desire, if you do venture into the social scene, feel free to chat with the locals. Staniel Cay also enjoys an international flow of visitors which contributes to its worldly island vibe.



The Village

The village is the heart of the community. With approximately 100 full-time residents, numerous Bahamian cottage homes are situated in the Village, along with a church (all denominations and religions welcome), small grocery stores, bakery, gift shop, medical clinic, school, library, telephone company, community beach/picnic area and more.




Staniel Cay Yacht Club

The Staniel Cay Yacht Club has been an established part of the Staniel Cay community since 1956. The Club offers a full-service restaurant and casual island bar. The Yacht Club was named one of Jimmy Buffett’s “10 Great Places for a Waterside Drink!” Two other establishments (“Taste and Sea” and “Big Dog’s Café”), both located on the road through the Village, also offer food and drink with a traditional Bahamian flair



Staniel Rents

Staniel Rents is family owned and consists of 2 luxurious home rentals on the island of Staniel Cay. Staniel Rents has the newest and most upscale properties on the entire island, featuring Italian furniture, marble, exquisite artwork, Antonio Lupi bathrooms and breathtaking oceanfront views.




Everything on Staniel Cay is within walking distance, although many people prefer to rent bicycles or golf carts for ease of transportation. One of the most common requests for assistance are for golf cart rentals, boat rentals, fishing/sightseeing guides and Snorkeling/Scuba/Fishing Gear Rentals.




Another common request is for a private chef to be on staff full time during your stay, as there is no grocery store on the island, they will be happy to assign a chef for you or make arrangement to have groceries from Nassau,Bahamas be delivered to the houses prior to your arrival.
