Cherokee Sound is Amazing!
Cherokee Sound is Amazing!
We rented this house from May19-June19 and it was exactly what we were looking for. My friend and I decided to take our classes online for the summer and spend a month in the Bahamas. By chance we happened to find this amazing house. Cherokee Sound is a small settlement on Abaco and all the people were very friendly and helpful. The neighbors were very welcoming and invited us over several times for friesh fish they had caught! Amazing home cooked Bahamian food! The town has a small Food Fair which is a very small grocer with most items but there is a large grocer in Marsh Harbor for the big trips. About a 2.5 minute walk in an amazing little beach with a 275 foot dock, locals call it Long Dock. The water is clear and the Bone Fishing is amazing. We saw all kinds of wildlife: starfish, sting rays, crabs, dolphins, sharks (small nurse sharks), hermit crabs, turtles and various species of birds. On the other side of the hill (about a 1.5 minute walk) is another beach called Watching Bay and we found bags and bags of sea glass here, it borders the Atlantic Ocean and so the water is dark and the waves are BIG. We went a drank our morning coffee here almost everymorning. We rented a Jeep from the owners of the house. A short drive from the house is Winding Bay and it is a picturesque beach with clear blue water and about two miles of beach. Past Winding Bay is Pete's Pub, the only restaurant in the area.The area of Cherokee Sound is very remote and is perfect for a relaxed fishing trip. Partiers should look else where... The People at Pete's were amazing! Pete helped me catch my first fish with a fly rod and they invited us for cookouts on the beach several times! I was overly impressed by the food fresh fish every day, they also have cheeseburgers! Great food and Great People. This house in Cherokee has everything!!! The A/C worked very well! The House runs on a Reverse Osmosis system and as a very large tank, although water conservation is advised. They have direct TV for the days you are stuck inside due to rain. The beds are comfortable and the house is VERY clean. The power went out a few times but that is Typical of Abaco and it never stayed off for more than two hours. Overall this was one of the best vacations I have ever been on. The house was perfect! Thank you Wayne and Martha!! Planning on renting this house again Spring 2013 and hopefully, we will make it an annual trip! Again, Thank you, Wayne and Martha we had a BLAST!

Taking our sailboat on the Caribbean 1500 from Hampton, Virginia to Marsh Harbour in Nov of 2010, we rented this house for a month. The first week, our crew stayed here and the rest of the time, we had family come visit. We found the home to be "as new" with everything needed, just bring your food, drinks and swimsuit. I can still see myself on the porch over looking the ocean, coffee in hand, and watching wild green parrots fly all around. The town of Cherokee is quaint and charming, with the friendliest people you'll ever meet. In a few short weeks, we were fishing, conching, and diving for lobsters with the locals. laid back at it's best........

Cherokee Hilltop Rental
Cherokee Hilltop Rental
My wife and I stayed at the property for several nights in May 2011. Our overall experience was excellent. We've been visitng the Abacos for 20 years and discovered Cherokee during a land tour while vacationing on Man-O-War Cay. After several more visits, we decided to inquire about a rental and were ultimately directed to this property by local word of mouth. We were not disappointed. The house was immaculate and well maintained, and every advertised amenity was available and in top-notch shape. Due to its hilltop location, views (360 degrees) are spectacular. There's a well stocked grocery store in the settlement, and Marsh Harbor is a short drive away for other supplies and diversions. You will need a car. (We stocked up on food and adult beverages in MH before driving down to start the rental.) We cocktailed and ate -- using the supplied gas grill -- on the ocean-facing porch, which is also a great place to observe the locals trolling just off the beach for wahoo, mahi and tuna. We recommend binoculars and a VHF radio to enhance this experience. One of the caretakers, who live next door, is a commercial fisherman; he always had fresh-caught seafood for sale at competitive prices. When we wanted to eat out, we drove to Pete's Pub in nearby Little Harbor, which has a has a great bar, restaurant and beach. It's a short walk to the beach on Cherokee Sound, one of the prettiest in the area. Even closer is Martha's Beach, which the owners take great pains to keep clean; it's a five-minute walk from the property. One day while strolling on the ocean beach we saw a large whale breach no more than a quarter mile offshore The availability of fresh water can be a problem in the Bahamas, but there's plenty here, thanks to a large cistern and a RO watermaker. (Reasonable consumption is urged, however.) This is not a place to rent for access to tiki bars and nightlife. But if you're looking for a slower pace, coupled with glorious scenery and readily available nature activities such as swimming, snorkeling, fishing and bird-watching, then this is the property for you. We can't wait to go back.

About the owner: That's me planting a banana tree in the back yard. Our home was built in 2006 by craftsmen who live right in Cherokee. They have become friends and good neighbors. We get advice on fishing, exploring beaches and how to plant banana trees!
Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Sound:
We liked the Abacos from our first visit over 15 years ago. On our first visit to Cherokee Sound in 2005 we were hooked. We were welcomed by friendly people, good fishing and endless beaches to explore. When we saw the beautiful colors of Cherokee Sound and Watching Bay reef from what is now our home site the planning started.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Among the many benefits of staying at our house is being within a short drive or walk to the town of Cherokee but having the privacy of our location as well. You get the best of both.
