Great Guana Cay cottage description

Elephant Beach House has approximately 700 square feet of air conditioned living area, plus scenic wood decks, thatched roof gazebo and deck overlooking the beautiful beach. Spacious stairs with comfortable landings provide additional living space to enjoy the spectacular views. Our beach is composed of some of the softest beach sand you will find anywhere in the world and is secluded (you may observe 10 people walk down the beach all day!). The cottage is rustic and cozy with split unit air conditioning and wall units for back-up. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, and toaster oven. The cottage is a split plan with the bedrooms each containing a queen size bed. The front bedroom has an attached bathroom with stand-up shower. The back bedroom has a water closet and an outdoor shower that overlooks the Sea of Abaco beyond the jungle. The cottage sleeps two couples comfortably. A golf cart is recommended and can be rented on the island. The lot is 750 feet deep and 100 feet wide on the beach with a tropical jungle surrounding the cottage. The cottage has a backup diesel generator in case of power outages.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Elephant Beach House is located on a 40 foot dune overlooking a beautiful, secluded beach with snorkeling and diving from the shore. This is a true get-away-from-it-all, laid-back island/beach locale. There are beach bars/grills, grocery store, and liquor store close by for your convenience.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are attorneys in Florida. We fell in love with this property and purchased it in 2004. We are fortunate to stay at Elephant Beach House 5 times each year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Great Guana Cay:
                  If you are looking for a secluded, island/beach get away, this is an ideal property. It is rustic (not fancy). This is not a luxury property. True beach/island enthusiastics will love the seclusion...the views...and the beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The stunning views and secluded nature of this property are what we love the most about Elephant Beach House.
