Great Harbour Cay house description

If you enjoy the best, this home is for you! Sugar Palms is a luxurious 4/3.5 home on pristine Great Harbour Cay, Berry Islands, Bahamas. Relax on the large sundeck with a drink at sunset or enjoy the views and sounds of the clear turquoise ocean while dining al fresco on the rear terrace. This retreat is beautifully decorated and includes many luxurious amenities: a large granite island in the kitchen, wine fridge, ice maker, plasma TV with satellite, Bose surround system (CD/DVD, iPod dock), custom artwork, spacious master bath with rain shower, reverse osmosis water filtration. The large great room has a dining table that seats 8. The house is equipped with air conditioners & ceiling fans throughout.There is a wraparound terrace and three of the four bedrooms have oceanviews. After a dip in the sea you can shower off outdoors. There is a laundry room with sink, washer and dryer. All the comforts of home in paradise! If you would like we can help you to arrange air and boat charters.


The Island: This beautiful haven offers pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, abundant sea life and friendly locals. It is located in the northern end of the Berry islands. There is a 9-hole golf course, a large hurricane protected marina, small grocery stores, local restaurants and a newly paved 5000 ft. airstrip. There are also twice daily flights from Nassau, and charters and shared charters from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Golf cart and boat rentals are available from Happy People (Elron Rolle). You can also buy fresh seafood and conch salad from the fishermen at the marina. This is an amazing vacation spot whether you want to kick back and relax or have fun in the sun. Truly a special paradise that does not disappoint!

Activities and Dining: On the island you can go shelling and looking for sand dollars on the flats on the south side of the island at low tide. This beautiful beach is known as 'Shell Beach'. It is worth a visit just to see it. You can also explore the caves and abandoned hotel on the north side, just a few minutes from the house. There are a few restaurants on the island that serve delicious Bahamian and International food. Enjoy conch fritters, or grouper fingers with a drink at the Rocky Hill Pool Bar & Reaturant at the Marina. Also Coolie Mae's in Bullock's Harbour serves delicious cracked conch and she can make you Banana Bread. At certain times of the year you can partake in local festivals and celebrations: every Friday in late June to mid July is Junkanoo, & the first week in August is Lobsterfest. However, if you just want to relax, read a good book or nurse a tropical drink in paradise, this is the perfect place!

Fishing and Boating: Don't miss a delicious lunch at Flo's Restaurant, finding the Blue Hole on Hoffman Cay and exploring the surrounding cays. Percy or Joe Darville are excellent fishing guides and can maneuver you through the flats to bonefish or take you deep sea fishing. There is fantastic snorkeling and sport fishing. Please note only Hawaiian slings may be used for spear fishing. You can expect to catch snappers, grouper, yellowtail, lobster and conch. You can rent boats from Elron at Happy People at the Marina.
