Coakley House - Blissfully Uncomplicated Luxury Coupled With Great Adventure.
For more pictures, flight information and general FAQ’s please visit our web site at www.coakleyhousebahamas.com
Coakley House is beautifully situated on a 1.5-acre privately owned point providing a spectacular 180-degree view of the pristine turquoise waters of the Atlantic Sea and Fresh Creek. Located on Andros Island, the largest yet one of the least developed islands in all of the Bahamas, Coakley House promises to exceed your expectations for amazing adventure, a relaxing retreat for your family and friends, and for countless romantic moments.
Your pleasure and privacy is ensured in this gated, tropical, secluded property once home to the Commander of the British Royal Navy. A small, private white sandy beach and a 35-foot boat dock are conveniently located within the property and provide excellent fishing, snorkeling, swimming and, of course, an idyllic place to soak up a little Caribbean sun.
The main house has been extensively renovated complete with all the amenities and are furnished in fine, colorful Bahamian Island style.
The house house has a spacious living room surrounded by windows and opens onto terraces in the front and back both overlooking a gorgeous ocean view. The large dining room with bay windows is great for intimate dining and has ample seating for larger festive gatherings. Or perhaps you will choose to dine al fresco under the shade of the ancient sea grape tree also overlooking the ocean. Or look up at night to take in the mesmerizing array of stars and the moon silhouetted against a coconut palm. And just across the Fresh Creek waterway is an old light house reputed to be a stopping place for pirates,waiting for you and your children to rediscover.
Each of the three master suites in the main house occupy a separate wing offering privacy, ocean views and breezes from every vantage point, king sized beds, fine linens and furnishings and an en suite tiled bath. The fourth bedroom is the perfect spot for children or singles with two cottage-style bunk beds, sleeping a total of four, and a private bath. All bathrooms feature a shower and a bath. There is also an outdoor shower.
A full kitchen and separate laundry room is equipped with all new appliances. A private cook, housekeeping and childcare can be arranged according to your needs.
Whether you seek one of the many grand adventures Andros has to offer, romance or perhaps a little of both, Coakely House offers an unforgettable experience, both simple and sublime, one which you will treasure and, like so many before you, will wish to repeat.

December 12, 2010 Marcie: Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your beautiful home and how great Maydawn and Donnie were to us while we were there. Within five minutes of our arrival on Sunday Donnie had wheeled and dealed and got us a case of beer when none was for sale that day, and the night before we left gave us about 8#’s of wahoo steaks. He could compete with a lot of comedians with some of his stories and routines. Maydawn cooked us five unbelievable native meals working with Stanley Bair, who used to own Bair Bahamas guest house on South Andros. Bonefish Bradley and all his guides, Donny, David, and Bradley II were terrific. You guys were spot on with your recommendations. We love your place and I would like to reserve it again , come in on Saturday and leave Saturday for December 3-10. Just let me know what you need for a deposit. Best to you. - John

3/31/2010 Hi , We are settled back in Nova Scotia now after a wonderful family holiday at your lovely vacation home. I can't imagine a better place for a family gathering!! My husband and I, along with our 3 children and their partners (ages 22-30), chose your home for a family reunion and were thrilled with what we experienced. It was so nice to be able to kayak, bike, fish, snorkel, enjoy long stretches of deserted sandy beaches, do long runs and have family meals without any travel. We also explored the island by car a bit and on these excursions we swam in a blue hole, picked grapefruit, visited the Mennonite farm, had Conch salad from a small restaurant on a lovely beach, visited a local bakery, enjoyed freshly roasted peanuts etc. etc. You have really paid attention to the small details in setting up this vacation property and the conveniences provided certainly made this a carefree place to be. We loved the large patio, dining room and family room as these provided places for all 8 of us to hang out. Each bedroom was spacious, comfortable and quiet so we were always well rested for the next day's activities. We found that as the week went by we were getting up earlier and earlier because we had so much exploring to do!! Donnie and Zemi were particularly helpful in checking in with us every day and in ensuring that we were aware of all that the island of Andros offers. We were very comfortable exploring Fresh Creek by foot and found the residents to be very friendly and helpful. We took the ferry back to Nassau and on the way out of Fresh Creek I took a lot of pictures of your paradise. It was a sad moment when the little pink house disappeared from view as we set out on the ocean. Thanks for providing us with a location for an absolutely perfect family reunion!! Shauna
