  • Great location, great property managers.

    "We stayed in the older two bedroom cottage, attached to the one bedroom. We got a late start due to snow storms in Boston! Our cottage could use some updating, but despite that we were comfortable. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. Mario and Princess responded quickly to our requests and are very pleasant and helpful, as are all the local people we met. We had a clunker car which I think is needed to explore. Will not repeat the information others have shared, there's lots to see, but you have to travel. The roads have lots of pot holes, but you get used to it and end up driving like the locals(or I did)!! We brought some of our own food and condiments and ate out at Hank's and The Conch Salad takeout and Conch burger place next door. DIY bone fishing is fantastic, Tommy Kee took my husband out and he had a great day. The weather was not ideal, cool, very windy from NW/N/E, so there was no snorkeling which bummed me out and too windy to really kayak near the coast. You can walk the beach forever at low tide and fish off the beach or the new long dock next door. The separate newer two bedroom cottage was the best from my perspective and the man living in the "Pink two story" house next door is building 3 new villas and a restaurant on that road. It looks like development is picking up and tourism as well. The bugs definitely bite, deet worked for me, that's what I had. Others have suggested Skin so Soft or a daily antihistamine. Our neighbors were very nice and helped us to locate very good diy bone fishing places. Andros is an interesting island with lots of character. It is rustic still, but we like that. two grocery stores with adequate supplies. costs are higher for some things, not as bad as the US Virgins. We look forward to going back in a couple of years. The dogs were very nice and protective."

    "We stayed at Coconut Beach house 351226 for a week in the middle of October 2014. We could not be happier with the experience we had. The house has all the amenities needed to enjoy your vacation whether you want adventure, relaxation, or both! Kitchen is fully outfitted with appliances, cookware, utensils etc. Bedrooms stocked with linens and bathrooms with tons of towels. There is also washer/dryer utility room! We were also provided with two bicycles to ride around the island. Air conditioning in the bedrooms kept us cool during the nights. House opens on a porch leading to a conch-lined path ending on a white sand beach! A hammock awaits you in the beautiful coconut grove along the path! We arrived by our own boat and were able to anchor it right in front of the house. The arrangements/payments were simple and smooth. The caretaker of the house was so accommodating and supplied us with anything we needed on a daily basis. The neighbors near the property are so friendly and make you feel like family during your stay. We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the annual Conch Festival where we met many local Bahamians who included us in the festivities and made us feel at home. The local scuba diving is astoundingly beautiful. We dove on several lovely reefs and in a blue hole! The fishing is also amazing...bonefish, tuna, grouper, hogfish, and lobster were some of the meals we enjoyed. This was one of the best trips we have taken and we plan on returning to this beautiful location again!"

  • Islanders at heart

    "I almost hate to share any wonderful imfo about this amazing house/island and our great owners....it would be a sweet secret to keep but also something so nice it needs to be shared. This was our second visit to pleasant dreams and this time we brought our adult kids. Of course the house is just perfect. We used the all the "toys" and cooked amazing meals in their fully equipped kitchen. If you love rainbows in the morning and lightning shows off in the distance at nite you will love this place. Steve and Lin are so easy to deal with and we will be back. The snorkeling every day and the "floats" in your own private cove are hard to get out of your mind. We ate lobster,conch, and fish thru the whole visit. I do suggest visiting Diane/Rodney. Our guys went out with Rodney and came back with a cooler full. And Diane is a sweet interesting lady who is so helpful . We even went over to her place and had dinner. You will want to rent a car for at least part of your visit. It s very helpful in getting to grocery store and of course sightseeing. Not an island for those seeking crazy nitelife . More of a quiet turn off your phone and forget the world kind of place. Just what i think everyone could use. We def made some unforgettable memories."

  • Highlight of our vacation!

    "My husband and I and our four children (ages 15, 13, 10 and 9) went on a guided nature hike with Ed during our vacation on South Andros over Spring Break (March 2015). It was truly one of the unexpected highlights of our vacation. The kids weren’t too keen on going on the hike initially – admittedly it was hard to leave one of the most beautiful beaches we’d ever seen to venture into the woods for a few hours. However, within minutes of starting the hike, Ed won the kids over with his engaging personality. During the hike, we learned a lot about the natural resources, animals and birds of South Andros as well as a bit about Bahamas history. Ed kept the kids interested by pointing out different plants and trees along the way and explaining what they are used for (food, building materials, etc.) on the islands. The kids particularly enjoyed the visit to the rat bat cave, where we were able to climb down into the cave and view the bats flying around. We also saw three blue holes during the hike and even went swimming in the last one we visited – which was quite an experience in itself and extremely refreshing at the end of the hike. Ed is an incredibly personable and knowledgeable guide and I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting South Andros. After the hike Ed brought us back to his house, where we met his charming wife, Emily. Ed chopped down some sugar cane and coconuts, picked some sapodilla fruits and bananas and we all sat down for a picnic by the beach. The kids were fascinated by the way Ed chopped open the coconuts with a machete and served them fresh coconut water and coconut jelly. Between the hike and the picnic on the beach, it was truly a memorable experience for all of us and definitely one of the highlights of our trip! While we did not stay with Ed and Emily, we did take a tour of their house and the rental accommodations. Both are extremely nice with easy access to the ocean and amazing views. Add one of the most charming couples on the island as your hosts and it’s the perfect vacation rental! We had the opportunity to see Ed and Emily a few more times before we left including at a community event, where Emily taught one of my daughters to weave straw and introduced her to some of the local girls her age. They even came to the airport to see us off the day we left. Ed and Emily made us feel like family and we will never forget their kindness and hospitality. Two of the nicest people you will ever meet!"

Andros Travel Tips

Beautiful Natural Surroundings at Andros Vacation Rentals

Andros is the largest island in the Bahamas and surprisingly enough has been spared commercial development. The result is a beautiful natural tropical environment which can be enjoyed by nature lovers. Andros is actually made up of three islands--North Andros, Mangrove Cay, and South Andros. The island is also home to the world’s third-largest barrier reef which is just over 140 miles long. Because of the reef and the large number of blue holes on Andros, the island attracts many scuba divers who come to explore the underwater wonders. The island’s interior in made up of thick almost impenetrable bush, mangrove swamps, and hardwood forests. Andros is reported to have more than 40 known species of wild orchids as well as large bird and insect populations including many unique butterflies. It’s a great destination for people with a scientific interest in nature.

Andros Travel Attractions and Historic Landmarks

There are several unique attractions on Andros that have an interesting history. The Andros Lighthouse was built in 1892 and has three cannons at its base that came from the Cottsac Schooner that was wrecked on Stanyard Rock in the 1800s. The Mariners Well is a freshwater well located between two saltwater lakes. It is believed to have been discovered and used by pirates as a water source in the 1700s. Just south of Pleasant Harbor, you can see the ruins of an early native colony. There are eight stone buildings which depict the vintage Bahamian-style architecture of the 1930s. In Androsia, you can visit the famous textile and batik factory. You can tour the complex and see how the colorful garments that are popular Bahamian souvenirs are made.

Activities on Offer near Andros Resorts

Scuba diving is one of the city's main sporting activities. There are a number of reputable dive operators based on the island that provide regular charters to the various dive sites. Because of the abundance of dive sites, it’s advisable to have at least an advanced diver’s certification in order to be able to enjoy the best dives available. The barrier reef drops down to the ocean floor and diving on the dramatic walls and drop-offs is an incredible experience. The blue holes or underwater caverns are home to a host of natural underwater treasures. The sheer experience of diving in these natural wonders will be a highlight of your trip.

A great way to explore the coastline and mangroves of Andros is to join a kayak excursion. Often the tour companies will provide snorkeling gear so that you can stop en route and take a peek at the underwater world. Combine this with eco-walks and you can learn more about the fauna and flora that is unique to Andros.

Fishing is another popular activity on Andros. The island is well known for its superb bonefishing which can be enjoyed on the flats. Reef or deep sea fishing can be easily arranged through one of the local charter companies.

On the island, you can explore the natural wonders by biking, hiking or taking overland tours. It’s advisable to hire a local nature guide so he or she can point out the various plants and animals as you explore. If you are on your own and not sure what to look out for, you could miss some if the island’s great attractions.

Sailing and windsurfing are two other activities that attract visitors from all over the world. On a windy day, the colorful sails can be seen cruising up and down the coastline. There are several boat shops that will hire equipment and provide lessons for those keen to try their hand at windsurfing.

Best Seasons to Stay at Bahamas Vacation Rentals

The Bahamas have a year-round warm tropical climate, although the islands do fall within the hurricane belt. Tropical storms occur in the late summer months and so this is considered the low tourist season. Seasonal rain showers do occur through the summer months. Winters are moderately drier and often the preferred season to visit.
