This is a great 2 bedroom home on one of the most beautiful and secluded islands in the Bahamas. The native population of Rum Cay is about 75 with a dozen or so vacations houses so if you're looking for casinos and night clubs you may want to look for something in Nassau. If you're looking for a peaceful secluded place to really get away from it all this is the place for you.
For a long time Rum Cay was off the beaten path and only visited by the lucky few (mostly private pilots and sailors). Today thanks to a new airport that can accommodate large aircraft and weekly commercial flights, this unspoiled jewel of the Bahamas is accessible to all.
This 2 bedroom homes has 2 twin beds in each bedroom that can be pushed together to make double beds when needed. This home is perfect for 2 couples, or a family.
At this time Rum Cay has just a small population and is truly the unspoiled jewel of the Bahamas. At night (thanks to very little light pollution) the stars shine like not place we have ever seen, it is like riding on a space ship.
Rum Cay has all the modern amenities (commercial power, phone system. Internet, and runway that accommodates commercial traffic) that bring development, come and visit this island in all its natural beauty before the tourist get here. ...moreless

Our family of 4 spent 2 weeks here over the holidays and it doesn't get any better that this for a private beach stay! The house is in excellent condition, with all the amenities you need for a stay on a remote Bahamian island (full kitchen and laundry, hot and cold water, floor plan that lets the breeze right through the house). The owner lives right next door, and is always around to take care of anything you need. The fishing is fantastic, and the water was perfect. We spent more than half of our days on the beach, and it was a rare day to run into someone out there! We're already planning on coming back next year
