                                  Car: Not Necessary

                                  Our home is located on the barrier island of Guana Cay. It is reached via many Florida airports as well as Nassau, Bahamas flying into Marsh Harbour International Airport. A short taxi drive will take you to the Albury Ferry Service Guana Cay Ferry which is a 20 min ride to Guana Cay. The ferry runs on a regular schedule to and from Guana Cay/Marsh Habour. Our home is on the Sea of Abaco. Being a barrier island the beaches are beautiful pink sand with a close natural coral reef for snorkeling. The water is crystal clear and beautiful.

                                  Other Activities: boating, kayaking, wildlife viewing, basketball court, shopping, tennis, swimming and shelling

                                  About the owner: Owners have been coming to Guana Cay since 1975 and are avid fishermen/divers. They have made many friends over the years and decided to build a second home on Guana Cay. It has become a great get away, yet so close from Florida.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Great Guana Cay:
                                  Guana Cay has a beautiful beach with a barrier reef full of sea life. Snorkeling right off the beach. Easy access from Florida to Marsh Harbour thru a number of cities and airlines. Ideal quiet town with golf cart transportation. A number of restaurants for evening entertainment on the island. Safe, gated community. Deep sea charter fishing and dive boat charters are available on island, as well as golf cart and boat rental. Private charters can be arranged thru Orchid Bay.
