Open to the breeze, this is barefoot living with fantastic swimming on your own private beach. Full renovated, with beds for 6 adults and 2 children. Large decks and a side porch provide ample outdoor living space with shade for lunch, yoga or a nap. Kitchen and 2 bathrooms are functional & pretty. Upstairs has two bedrooms, King and Queen, separated by beach-style curtains, and small bathroom between. Also upstairs sleeping deck is ideal for stargazing. Air conditioning is ready when needed, or let the ocean breeze and fans keep you cool. Entertainment includes 2 screens (no TV) to play a collection of DVDs, Ipod dock, and guitar. Wireless Internet access is on a pay per use system. Generator (manual start) is available. A well landscaped private yard with fragrant lilies and sculptures adds more unique flavor to OceanSong. Ideal for retreats, romantic getaways, a place to heal, renew and have fun.
The Spirit of OceanSong: Open all the windows, feel the ocean breeze & hear the surf, then plunge in for your wake-up dip, walk or jog the beautiful 3-mile beach, snorkel on the lush reef a short swim away, go skinny and be one with nature, play with turtles and rays, flirt with the sculptures, move with the palms, surf and swim and snorkel some more, grill fresh fish and dine 'al fresco', then sleep under the stars, and wake the next morning to create fresh adventures - to breathe, stretch and marvel over and over again...Sugary sand invites castle-builders, gentle waves accept swimmers of all ages, a simple path & steps over the dune make it easy for kids to play in freedom and safety. This is a house well-loved by our own children, and feels playful. Create your own fun, collect perfect shells, find turtle tracks, drink from fresh coconuts from the yard and climb trees. Go fishing with a guide or on your own. Snorkel or scuba on reefs teeming with life. Share adventures & learn of about ocean wonders.
Activities in Great Guana: After swimming, sunning, walking to the end of the beach and exploring the reef, you can rent a bike and visit the rest of the island, ride to Baker's Bay, the luxury resort to the north, for a lunch. Rent an outboard and go boating or fishing, exploring the other islands around the sea of Abaco: Man O' War and Elbow Cay to the south, each island having its own character and easily reached during a day of boating. Great family outing is snorkeling and diving with Dive Guana to the beautiful sea preserves of Fowl Cay and North Guana. More expert dive sites are also possible if you are looking for wreck dives. The reef here is the third largest barrier reef in the world, attracting divers from all over the world. 3 island Restaurants include world famous Nippers (easy walk up the beach from OceanSong) & Grabbers nearby on the sea of Abaco for sunset.
Fun & Healing at OceanSong: Make friends with people from all over the world, listen to stories of sailing and fishing adventures, then create your own... Dance to sensual music & funny Bahamian ballads...Sing around a campfire on the beach, while awestruck at the rich Milky Way above. Start your day with yoga, a beach walk, a swim, fresh fruit, and let the ocean breeze caress and cleanse until you are deeply restored, satisfied. Browse our library of healing, new age and personal growth books there for you. Start a dream journal and make wishes with each shooting star you see from the sleeping deck. Write poems and listen to the ever present surf crash on the beach, rediscover your inner child, play and roll in the perfect pink sand. and promise yourself to return again...

Oceansong is located on a spectacular beach with beautiful soft clean pink sand, and particularly good sandy entry into the water (which is not always the case along the rest of the beach, where rocky reefs make the access dangerous for children). There is a rare, beautiful coral reef you can swim to about 50 yards away, teeming with fish! Good surf break too. You are an easy walk up the beach to famous Nipper's Bar and to harbour docks/shops, so you do not need to have a golf cart during your stay. The cottage is owned by 2 artists and decorated with our island art works: original photographs, paintings and sculptures. Oceansong is very private and surrounded by a sculpture garden where numerous native trees provide shade and privacy, as well as fragrant lilies, hibiscus, bougainvillia, jasmin, coco palms. You'll be in/out of the warm water all day. Oceansong is on a very beautiful island that can serve for nature explorations, dancing fun, diving/fishing, or healing retreats....morecollapse

We have surfboards available. Boats and bikes are for rent along with scuba/snorkeling thru nearby Dive Guana. Private beauty of Oceansong, and the long sandy beach, also makes this a unique retreat for romance, healing, renewal, and family fun....morecollapse

peace, beach, and oceanfront!
peace, beach, and oceanfront!
I have stayed at Oceansong, the name of this property, along with my girlfriend. Morning coffee on the deck having breakfast is a wonderful way to start the day or dinner on the deck to end the day. The master bedroom upstairs is open and airy and there is a deck off the second floor with a place to sleep under the stars as well. Downstairs has a functional and good kitchen along with two other bedrooms, bathroom and living area--perfect for entertaining. There is a dune in front of the house that gives you privacy from "beach gawkers" but you can see the ocean from the second floor i all its glory. Just down the beach is the infamous Nipper's bar--great dancing, tunes, drinks, people, BBQ [cuban cigar selection]. Down the street from OceanSong is Grabber's bar--a virtual cornucopia of rum infused bad behavior/good stories later opportunities abound if your in the mood [which i often am in the islands...just sayin...] The beach at your footsteps in front of the house is wonderful for swimming and there are some close in reefs for snorkeling...the locals frown upon skinny dipping [formal Bahamian thing] but a quick shortrun from the the front of the house and your day has begun well--along with the coffee waiting for you on the deck. Whether your looking for a family getaway or a romantic getaway this is an excellent choice. The ability to dine in saves big money but you have lots of options out there to tempt you as well. I'm looking forward to going back.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are both artists: Michael is an American sculptor/ painter and Anyes is a French photographer. We have a young daughter and we are now living in London, after living in Breckenridge, Colorado, before moving to the Bahamas, to live full time at OceanSong. We are interested in healthy living in beautiful places. We have left for our visitors a solid library of our inspirational books, around healing, yoga, massage, meditation, personal growth, prayer and more...
Why the Owner Chose Great Guana Cay:
We bought Oceansong to live there in 2005. After 7 winters in a ski resort in Colorado, we craved for some warmth and being near the ocean. We both were very busy creating sculptures, paintings and photographs to show in galleries in Nassau and Miami, and this was a great place to be creative, without any disctractions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is nothing as ideal as a good weekend on the beach, when the Ocean is right there to dive in, in the surf or on a flat calm day. I love being on the beach, finding treasure, exploring the far end of the empty beach at dawn, making a bon fire on a windless night, watching the moonrise...
