Fresh Creek cottage description
Spacious one bed, one bath beach house in Davis Creek- Fresh Creek Andros Bahamas, located on unspoiled private beach.
Fully furnished, this one bed comes with a pull out sofa. It can sleep a maximum of four persons. And a (2) two bed one bath house is also located near. More information on the two bed beach house can be provided upon request.
Both units have railed decks, which are ideal for enjoying the fresh ocean breeze in the day or you can gaze at the stars in the moon lit sky at night.
Occupants can choose to swim in the crystal clear waters or just feel the sand underneath his/her feet as one stroll the white sandy beach.
Or, if you prefer, you can relax on the deck and sun bath in the beach chair.
This property is ideal for vacationers who just want to get away from it all.
Wi Fi access and flat screen TVs are available in the units. We also provide ocean pro kayaks for rent.
If you want to walk off the sea wall onto the beach, you will love this property in the Fall and Winter.The sand reaches almost the height of the sea wall.
The sand receeds in the summer, but the area then becomes ideal for flyfishing on foot. No boat will be necessary.
The property can be rented nightly, weekly or monthly. A car is optional at an additional charge.But it is recommended. As Andros is very large and the settlements are far apart.
Andros is the largest and most mystique Island in the Bahamas. It is located just 190 miles South East of Florida. It boasts the third largest barrier reef in the world. This magical Island is also called the bone fishing capital of the world. Over fifty species of orchards wild boar, iguanas and rare birds make this island their home.
Despite the fact this is the largest Island in the Bahamas it is the least discovered. Andros is called the 'sleeping giant'.It takes you away from the city of Nassau casinoes and traffic. It boasts deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, untouched pine forests and a number of blue holes. It is also the home of the world famous Androsia, a type of bright color clothing. The Average temperature year-round is 80F.
Travel to Andros: You can also fly direct to Nassau and then on to Andros Town via a 10 minute domestic flight via LeAir which makes two flights daily (for about $80-$100 round trip per person).
From Europe you can fly straight into Nassau via British Airways or Virgin Atlantic.
Another option is to travel to Fresh Creek Andros is via fast ferry from Nassau. That trip will take you 2 ½ hours.

Davis Creek Treasure
Davis Creek Treasure
My husband and I have stayed at this wonderful beachfront cottage twice, each time for two weeks. In May, 2014, we are staying for an entire month! That's how much we love it. The owner, Trevor, has perfectly described his piece of heaven. The house is well appointed and the property is beautifully kept. If you love dogs, this is the place for you! Known as Royal Bahamian Potcakes, these friendly dogs will capture your hearts, as they have done ours. There are helpful neighbors around if you need anything or information. Princess and Mario, Trevor's sister and brother- in-law, are wonderful people...in fact, they now feel like family. A rental car is imperative, as there are so many special places to visit. But if you're the bicycle type, there are two to use. The fishing is world class. My husband went on a bonefish trip with guide Tommy Key and is still raving about it! So, if you want a completely different vacation from any you've taken before, this is your place. In fact, I was reticent to write this review, as I wanted to keep this jewel all to myself!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Treasures of Andros! Trevor was so helpful in the logistics of planning our trip from start to finish. His lovely sister, Princess and family were always just a quick phone call away if we needed anything. She even gave me a ride to the store to stock up on a few supplies at the beginning of our trip, as the location is several miles from town. The quaint cottage is right on the water. It was such a joy to wake and have morning coffee on the deck overlooking the most blue water you will ever see! The neighbors couldn't have been any more welcoming, friendly and helpful to us! We felt like a part of the community there from day one. Even the beach dogs made us feel like family, accompanying us on our beach walks. Be sure to stock up on bottled water and any supplies needed at the small store before getting to the cottage. We were glad we brought lots of food with us, as the stores are very limited in what they carry. If you have any special dietary needs, be sure to bring supplies, as the island is quite primitive. If you like to get away from it all and have miles of beautiful empty beaches, than this is your place!

My husband and I spent a lovely two weeks in Trevor's one bedroom cottage. The beautiful turquoise sea was just outside the back door, and we enjoyed snorkeling, swimming and long beach explorations to the creeks in both directions - and also doing a whole lot of nothing! The cottage was clean and had two AC units, and Trevor, his sister Princess, and her husband Mario were always available if anything was needed - they went out of their way to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had the use of bicycles which enabled us to get around and explore several of the settlements south and north of us, and also to shop for groceries. If you wish, however, to go further south than Fresh Creek, explore the northern part of Andros, or get out to the Blue Hole (highly recommended!) you will definitely want a car. Our neighbors in Fresh Creek were all very friendly and hospitable and we enjoyed socializing with them when we weren't in the water or taking in the amazing wildlife just outside our door. We observed baby sharks, barracuda, sea turtles, a moray eel, all kinds of beautiful tropical fish, ccrabs, urchins, mollusks and seabirds - as well as the highly entertaining and loveable neighborhood dogs. A word of advice: Bring lots of bug spray if you come in summer. And, as tempting as the ocean breezes are, do not sleep with the windows open in the bedroom! The no-see-ums (a.k.a. midges, sandflies) will come right through the screens at dawn and dusk. Davis Creek is charming and beautiful, a perfect place to relax, but Andros is not without it's challenges. If you want to be entertained or pampered or enjoy fine dining and shopping - stick to New Providence or Paradise. But if you enjoy diving, fishing, snorkeling, beautiful remote beaches and wildlife, have a sense of adventure and enjoy getting to know local life, Andros is the island for you. And Trevor's cottages in Davis Creek are a lovely, affordable option to make your home base.

We stayed at this property for a month and truthfully enjoyed every minute of our stay. First of all the property which is managed by Princess and her husband Mario (lovely people who genuinely care that you have a good holiday) was exactly as described, it was exceptionally clean and very well cared for. We ran out of cooking gas towards the end of our stay, one telephone call and literally 10 minutes later we were hooked up to a new bottle of gas and cooking again - You really can't beat that for service! The owner Trevor was extremely helpful, providing us with lots of useful local information and advice, he was also very accommodating during the whole booking process - We really could not recommend him more! It's the perfect place to stay for DIY Bonefishing with vast flats nearby that are easily accessible by foot, there are local fishing guides available for hire for those that wish to fish the less accessible and more remote areas or have limited time to catch their trophies. We even caught Bonefish right outside of the apartment along with many other varieties of more edible fish (we didn't go hungry!) We had a wonderful time fishing, snorkeling, beach-combing and exploring - if you come across a piece of Androsia cloth tied to a tree or bush, ignore it at your peril as it invariably marks a track to a fantastic fishing spot or an amazing beauty spot. Andros really is a wonderful island, full of laid back, rustic charm, it is the perfect place to visit to 'get away from it all' and all of the local people we met were friendly, kind, generous and full of great humour. Of all of the places that we have traveled to this is one that we really would love to return to again! Thank-you Trevor, Princess and Mario for your help, advice and attention to detail, we truly had a wonderful time.

Wonderful Value and Exceptional Service
Wonderful Value and Exceptional Service
My husband and I choose this property because of its location on the ocean near Fresh Creek and its reasonable price. The listing and the photographs were very accurate, and we were delighted with our choice. What we hadn't expected was the wonderful personal service provided by our host Trevor Hanna and his family. Because we flew into the airport at the north end of Andros Island and Fresh Creek is in Central Andros, Trevor made a special trip north to pick us up, helped us shop for groceries, showed us around and delivered us to our cottage. He introduced us to members of his family and provided lots of great information about Andros. We loved the detailed maps he created to help us navigate the area. Although the weather was a bit too cool and windy for swimming the week we were there, we loved watching the beautiful sunsets over the ocean from our deck. We had some lovely experiences visiting the nearby National Park to look for birds and exploring the community of Fresh Creek. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly, especially the folks at the Andros Conservancy and Trust where we got good advice on where to find the rare endemic Bahama Oriole. Staff there helped my husband locate a great guide to take him flyfishing on the west side of the island for bonefish, permit and tarpon. This is quite a distance from Fresh Creek so it made for a very long, but highly successful, day. We had a wonderful week and would highly recommend this cottage for an adventuresome holiday for independent couples.

Cozy little place on a beautiful rustic coastline!
Cozy little place on a beautiful rustic coastline!
This was an ideal place for me and my two scuba diving buddies. The coastline here is lovely and is only a short, pleasant stroll to other even more private beaches. The walk to the local dive resort Small Hope Divers takes about 15 minutes on the beach, but we were also provided with bikes that got us there in 5-10 minutes via the road. The landlord Trevor was staying just across the way and was very helpful in arranging airport transportation and car rental for us. (He also helped us get back in our place when we accidentally locked ourselves out.) A really friendly guy. There was a handful of locals living in the area who were also very friendly and generous with us. This is truly a rustic island experience--there are very few restaurants around, the markets are sparsely supplied, and the roads can be a little rough. But you might find your neighbor showing up to offer you some freshly caught fish--or you could catch it yourself! If you're looking for remoteness and authenticity, this is a very comfortable place from which to base yourself--and Trevor couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating.

Had a Lovely Stay Here
Had a Lovely Stay Here
We stayed in the two bedroom apartment for a few days.. Very clean, great location, fantastic sunrises to watch on the deck with a coffee in the morning. Good WiFi, flat screen tv, made friends with the local dogs who are all so friendly, one in particular we wanted to adopt. Trevor was very helpful, rang when we got to apartment to check all ok and his sister Princess popped round to make sure all was ok and to offer any help we needed. We were here to visit our daughter who is currently working with Greenforce at Staniard Creek. Went snorkelling and diving, visited a blue hole which was stunning and so warm, Somerset Beach, Kristina's Cafe for conch fritters, Androsia factory and also Coconut Farm for dinner which was really nice. All the locals were very friendly. Went also to TImmy's Colors Bar, he is a lovely guy and does ridiculous measures of rum and coke!..... If you want a measure like you get back in the UK then ask for a coke and rum! Got some great bites from the Doctor flies at the beach, you really do need to kill them....then kill them again! An oil based moisturiser apparently works well against them, that and a well aimed slap. Photos of the property are accurate apart from there are some more railings around the decking now and more furniture.

Most relaxing vacation
Most relaxing vacation
We really enjoyed our short vacation in this beach house in late November 2011. The house was exactly how we expected based on the descriptions and the pictures posted here. It was very clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was that on windy nights the sound of the wind was very loud in the bedroom, which is just a few meters away from the sea. But we took that as part of the adventure and as a trade-off for being able to get out of bed and take exactly three steps to the patio, where we spent our mornings sipping coffee for hours looking at the ocean. For most days we had the beach to ourselves. A perfect getaway if you're looking for tranquility and nature. You can rent a car if you want, but we preferred to ride the two bikes available at the property for trips around the island, and the very nice, friendly neighbours also gave us a couple of rides in their cars. The owner was very helpful with our questions and requests. All in all we had a great time and would definitely recommend this place to our friends!

Do you like the sea, the calm, nature, friendly, helpful people, just live out of time for a while, but stay in contact whit your loved ones ? You just found the place to be and you will love it ! The apartment was perfectly matching with the listing description, the location and the pictures. The property was also squeezie clean, well maintained and the owner was very helpful for any questions or concerns before and during our stay on Andros. Some of our friends and relatives are already intrested seeing the place. You can swim, fish, snorkel and hang out on the beach on your door step. Small-Hope Divers are just down the road and you can walk, cycle and hike on the whole island. Our stay was perfect, the ball's in your court......
