"My Husband & I had one of my favorite vacations ever. We have been many locations and this one is my favorite. I nearly cried when I walked in the house and saw the breathtaking view. House is very clean & SO peaceful!"

"First off - let me say that we are only half way through our stay and I could not resist writing a review already. The best way I can describe Sand Dollar Cottages is to be off the grid with all the comforts of home. Chad, the owner, has thought of everything. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was how immaculately clean our cottage was. I managed high end hotels for years so my standards are very high - our accomdations could not of been better. Our cottage comes with a 14' foot boat but we have found that is all we have needed as there is a lot to explore - other cays and beaches nearby that are not Inhabitated. As a matter of fact - one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life - Little Bay - is just a short boat ride away and completely deserted. We have found it unnecessary to rent another boat or use the ferry service as we everywhere we want to go is right outside our door in casuarina point. Chad has plenty of water toys so you can swim, paddleboard, kayak, snorkel or fish right here. We have caught enough fish already to fed a small army - and that's in the off season with no guides! Several things I love about being here: Chad is on the property. He is a wealth of information and he will go out of his way to get you whatever you want or need if it's not here already. His dogs - Sasha and Sheba are friendly and come over to visit as often as you like. If you have pets at home you are missing - Sasha and Sheba are excellent fill in's. You will feel very comfortable here - everything in the house is easy to find, there is a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, linens,towels and lots of extra's. We are less then 25 minutes from Marsh Harbour and it's an easy ride (as long as you remember to drive on the left side). You do need a car though as we have had to and wanted to run into town for various things. Overall, there is nothing more we could of asked for on this vacation. We are already thinking of returning and our friends that would enjoy this place just as much
A few things to know:
- a car is highly recommended
- the bugs are BAD. Get bug spray on your way and rubbing alcohol as it soothes the itch immediately if you are bit.
- Groceries here are about three times the cost in the states. (I.e. A bag of oreo's is $9.00).
- Gas is about $6.00/gallon. Plan for that for the boat and car.
Overall - I think we have found a regular vacation spot and would highly recommend!!"

"My finance and I truly enjoyed our vacation at The Nutty Mermaid! We fell in with the place for many reasons:
*Fantastic accommodations and hospitality by Michelle and Joy.
*Beautiful views of the gorgeous turquoise ocean.
*Good snorkeling right off of their private beach.
*Perfect location with easy access by boat to Treasure Cay (Cocoa Beach) and Guana Cay (Nippers Bar).
*Stunning views of the sun rises every morning.
*Great fishing in the area.
*We got married in Marsh Harbor!
*Both Michelle and Joy were a pleasure to work with and full of information about the house, the area and things to do.
As other reviewers mentioned, pictures do not do the place justice. It was comfortable, very clean and had everything you needed to have a wonderful vacation! We will definitely be back! Thank you Michelle and Joy for an awesome time!!"

"Tammi & Freds' Lowtide cottage is the perfect escape for the two of us! Having vacationed in the Abaco's for the last 20 years, I can honestly tell you that this house had everything you need to experience the hub of the out-islands. We rented a 20 foot Albury Brother's boat from Seahorse rentals and kept it at the dock behind the house. It was the absolute best setup. We grilled out every night at Lowtide when we got back from a long day in the sun. Best thing to do is go to Maxwell's grocery on your way in from the airport to pick up your basic provisions (food, condiments, papertowels, toilet paper, alcohol, etc...), so you won't have to hop into another taxi until you leave. Tammi was so accommodating with everything! We loved our stay and will definitely be back!"
