Welcome to Rum Punch: “Rum Punch” is located on South Staniel Cay, a 12 minute walk from the Staniel Cay Yacht Club and 3 minute walk from the Iles General Store and dinghy dock which is just south of the airport. Our comfortably furnished 4 bedroom house (sleeps 9) has ceiling fans and AC units in every room with water views and tropical plantings.
Rum Punch Floor Plan: There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor with a deck , a spacious outside shower, an entry sitting area, laundry facility, ½ bath and a full bath, the south room has 3 twins, the middle has a queen and the north has 2 twins. The second floor has the master suite with full bath, an open living/ dining room and kitchen with 2 screened porches with ceiling fans and a south facing deck. The teak-countered kitchen is truly gourmet equipped with dishwasher and all necessary appliances. A Vermont Casting barbecue is outside on the deck. An ipod friendly cd sound system and fm marine band radio are in the living room.
Rum Punch Caretaker: Our caretaker is Burke Rolle, owner of Isles General Store just down the street. He also rents boats. Burke and Vivian Rolle’s number is 242-355-2007. Golf carts can be rented from Nicole Ferguson us# 305-407-1058 or 242-355-2101. Tap water is made from the town watermaker and we have our own filter (UV and particulate) system. You may shower to your “heart’s content” outside but be sparing with flushing and showering indoors as Bahamian septic systems cannot handle large flows.
We stayed at Rum Punch for a weekend in March 2014 and loved it. The house is set up high so you have a beautiful view and can catch the island breeze whichever side it's coming from. It has all the modern conveniences you would expect, including fast Internet for the online junkies out there (one of the people in our group needed to make a conference call on the arrival day and it worked well). We brought our own food along and either cooked in the fully stocked kitchen or used the BBQ outside.
It's a short walk to the closest beach, the airport and to the general store. About 12 or 15 minutes to the yacht club, depending which way you go, if you want to go for drinks or a meal.
We hired a motorboat from the general store to see the swimming pigs and to Thunderball grotto, both were amazing! Then we putted around some other islands for the rest of the day and found deserted beaches to chill on.
The caretakers, Mr and Mrs Rolle were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall a very relaxing time in a stunning environment, I would definitely recommend it
