Sumner Point cottage description

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.
