Recent Great Guana Cay reviews

  • Tucked away beauty

    "It took 3 planes, a ferry and a golf cart to get to Beachwatch but it was worth every moment. If the phrase hole-in-the-wall makes any sense applied to the Bahamas, that about sums it up. Quiet, restful, pretty spot. The house is outfitted to please any kitchen maniac. Caught Wahoo, went snorkeling and just generally tooled around. The rooftop deck on the house is a great place to hang and be mellow over drinks. Our two boys loved it as well and they're hard to please. They both say it's better than Disney World. Highly recommended for low maintenance enjoyment."

  • happy wedding!!!

    "We have traveled to Great Guana for about 12 years now; have stayed at many rentals; this is our favorite by far! The pics really don't quite do it justice; it's better in person! The views are to die for, and the beach just out front is the best on the island! Seriously, no rock/coral out front; just the most pristine beach! The owners were very easy to work with, and the caretaker was very reliable. The kitchen has top of the line appliances, and a dishwasher, which is a luxury on this island. The decks (with surround sound) are awesome. We were there for our second child getting married on guana, and our first really enjoyed having the private suite at blue surf to round off her honeymoon! I (almost hate) to recommend this home, as I hope it is readily available to me as we visit guana again and again! BTW, the owner contacted ME to give me back my deposit!"

  • Fun in the Sun

    "We had another excellent trip to Grandview. As always, the stress seeps away the minute we board the ferry. Every trip to Guana is special and we love meeting new people and expanding our friendships. Greg and Lori are very gracious and they have put together a perfect place to relax and enjoy the island."

  • GREAT Christmas vacation

    "GREAT Christmas Vacation in Great Guana Cay!!! Our family of five (mom, dad, boy 6, and two girls 15 and 17 yrs.) had a great time at Watch Hill – December 22 – 28. Gina (owner) was easy to deal with and gave us all the information we needed for an easy arrival and stay. The well-maintained and furnished house is on the Atlantic side with beautiful views and a great beach, 5 min golf cart drive to ‘town’ and 10 min beach walk to Nippers. Watch Hill has a well equipped kitchen (dish washer, oven/stove, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, all pots/pans, ect.. also a grill), tons of towels, and sufficient “leftovers” from previous guests for a day at the beach (umbrellas, beach chairs, toys, sun screen, ect..). The weather was great (around 75-80 in the day, 65-70 at night), water was in the 70’s and not too cold. We had 2 days that were windy, other than that the weather was perfect. With teenagers and not wanting to have to “rough it”, we were split on doing a resort or something like Guana Cay. Don’t worry, Guana is not roughing it (unless you’re a type-A personality) and has enough to do to keep the kids/parents occupied. The girls had a great time and we got to spend some excellent quality time with the kids just hanging out (and yes, there is internet). Guana is probably what the Bahamas were like 10-15 years ago. It is laid back, nice people and not overly touristy. You will need to rent a golf cart to get around. We rented/reserved ours before we arrived (Gina will give you the contact information) and they met us at the dock with the cart. Rent a boat for a day or three to explore Man-o-War, Hope Island and other nearby Cays (I am by no means a ‘sailor’ but had no problem getting in and around the nearby islands). I’d recommend bringing snorkeling equipment. If you have young ones, bring a cheap fishing rod to catch small fish for fun. There are 5 restaurants, liquor store, grocery store, laundry, boat and cart rentals so don’t worry about there not being any ‘supplies’. We preferred Grabbers, it seemed less ‘bar-like’, had more space to lounge and was just more laid back. They had kayaks you can use (free) – highly recommend paddling out to the little island 200 yds from shore for great snorkeling. Kidds bar is on the main drag by the docks, it is more of a local hang out but a great place to sit and meet folks and just hang out once the sun has gone down. You are going to pay D.C/NYC prices for food and drink."
