Marsh Harbour house description
Sugar Shack is nestled at the northeast end of Sugar Loaf Cay. With easy boat access from Marsh Harbour and a perfect view of the Sea of Abaco, this is the place to be in the Abacos for a relaxing island vacation.
The property is approximately 6 acres and has water frontage on both the Sea of Abaco and the creek between Eastern Shore and Sugar Loaf.
There is a deep water dock on the creek side for your rental boat and more. The dock has water, 30/50 amp shore power and length for up to a 60' boat.
At the dock entrance is a sandy beach for the kids and sunbathers (see photos).
A wrap around porch has views on both sides of the property including a view of the Hopetown/Elbow Cay candy striped lighthouse.
Built in 1998, the interior of the house is outfitted well with the amenities you'd expect from an island home. The open-air feeling with views on all sides make it the perfect get away for you and your family.
There are three bed rooms in the air-conditioned sleeping quarters. One room with twin beds shares a full bath with a queen room. The owners room has a king bed with private bath.
During the day, activities abound all around. Sugar Shack is the perfect starting point for the wonderful island hopping adventures that make the Family Islands in Abaco so delightful. Hopetown, ManOWar, Guana, Lubbers Quarters, Tahiti Beach, and even Little Harbor are all within easy boating distance. For half-day trips or longer, Treasure Cay and Green Turtle are easily reached from Sugar Loaf.
For the less adventurous, snorkeling and fishing are great all around the perimeter of the island and interior salt flats.
A caretaker is nearby (on-island) for unexpected needs and/or assistance.

Best location in the Bahamas
Best location in the Bahamas
My family and I spent a week at the Sugar Shack last summer. The house is awesome and the location is in my opinion the best in the Bahamas. The house is located right on the eastern tip of the island with great views of Hopetown and the Sea of Abaco. I have rented many places on VRBO in the Bahamas and there arent any as nice as this place.

Wonderful time in the Abacos
Wonderful time in the Abacos
We have stayed at Sugar Shack several times and have had a wonderful time each visit. The water in the Abacos is just spectacular. The house is perfectly located - close enough to run over for dinner and shopping, but out of the way enough to feel secluded. We spent lots of time visiting the outer cays and have boated as far south as Little Harbor for lunch. On one trip we brought our kids (8 and 10 years old) and others we just had a getaway with 3 couple-friends. Kids liked boating to nearby beaches and spent some time playing on the sand beach on Sugar Loaf. Boat Harbor/Abaco Beach Resort is the closest marina. That was our mainland Abaco jumping off point for taxis and occasional lunches. There is a public dock within 5 minutes of the house and Marsh Harbour itself is 10-15 minutes around the corner by boat for groceries and shopping. On our last visit, we found a message in a bottle at the Sugar Shack boat dock. It had floated the Atlantic for 5 years from Portugal. Contacted the owner and now have friends in Australia... go figure! Owners and care takers are helpful and there if you need them - out of site if you don't. The free Abaco Guide provided by the renters was most helpful. Highly recommend a stay at Sugar Shack.

Year Purchased: 1998
About: Our family lives in Little Rock, AR and travel to the island a few times each year.
Why Marsh Harbour:
If laid back island-time adventures are your 'thing' - then the Abacos are for you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
From Sugar Shack, you are near most of the Family Islands and Marsh Harbor itself is only a short boat ride. Sugar Loaf is so near the main island that it affords you the island-feel with relatively easy access to stores, marinas and restaurants.
