    "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!"

  • Reconnect with family by disconnecting from tech

    "Our family of four spent Spring Break here based on the photos and reviews on the HomeAway website. Diane is a gracious hostess who seems to know everyone on the island. She went out her way to set up a charter flight to and from Nassau, a taxi from Andros airport, scheduled a lady to plait my daughters hair, as well as suggested accommodations in Nassau prior to our arrival. The property, Knoll's Landing, is a secluded beachfront paradise on an otherwise relatively undeveloped island. If you want nightlife and a cruise ship atmosphere, stay in Nassau At Knolls landing, nature provides ample entertainment for those who want an authentic island experience. Our beach house slept my wife and two kids comfortably with wind and waves to lull us to sleep each night. There is no cell service and the internet access was intermittent, but this was actually a positive since my wife could not check work email and our teenage daughter could not text friends all vacation. We found our daughter to be a very likable child when her nose is not buried in an iPhone and, surprisingly, the feeling was mutual. My son and I came for the bonefish. We scheduled 2 days on the water and Rodney is an exceptional guide and all around great guy, but the weather did not cooperate so no fish were hooked. Such are the vicissitudes of fishing, especially early season. Snorkeling, swimming and spearfishing for lobster are available directly off the beach, but for more diverse seascapes, Diane can schedule a snorkeling day trip to a nearby island which is about 20 minutes offshore. Our snorkeling guide, Yellow, was one of the kindest most soft spoken men I have ever met. He was very attentive to my 12 year old as he navigated to reefs, and he had an eagle eye for spotting lobsters for my son to spear. Writing this review makes me eager to return if the opportunity should present itself, and my son and I would readily hire Rodney for another shot at bonefish or even tarpon in the summer months. We would have no reservations about recommending this property to likeminded couples or families."

  • Well worth the trip to Andros!

    "Our family had an excellent time in one of Trevor's beach cottages. We spent 7 days on Andros and were well looked after by Trevor, Princess and Mario. The kitchen and laundry were great and we were happy with our beach front cottage, merely steps from the beautiful water. Cell phone and TV worked great! Snorkeling from the cottage was fine, not coral, but we did see fish, especially at low tide. Things close on Sunday's so make sure you have food and water. The National Park is a short drive from here and you can access two in-land Blue Holes with walkways. Make sure to stop by the Park headquarter at Fresh Creek during the week, the people who work there are wonderful and can point you in the right direction for birding as well. Rainbow Blue Hole is up the road a little way from the cottage by bike or car. It's a short walk in but make sure to wear good walking shoes as the coral path is rough and there is a lot of poison wood around. The Blue Hole is beautiful and worth a swim. If you have a car visit North Andros for the cliff, caves and most importantly, the ocean blue hole at the end of Conch Sound Road in Nicholls Town. We only found out about this after talking to a local restaurant owner. You drive to the end of the road, turn left along the water and park at the end. You walk from the shore about 20 feet at low tide. You can see the blue hole from the beach. Snorkeling around the hole was awesome, the current coming out of the hole is strong, you can see great fish! Try and go at low tide, a must visit spot. Just up from the cottage is the Taste and See Restaurant owned by Cinderella, who is a great cook. Call ahead as the schedule varies. This is a great spot. Snorkel trips by boat from Small Hope Bay Resort just south of Davies Creek. The prices as reasonably for a 2 hour trip. We heard that the lunch is good and worth the $18 per person, though we did not go. The neighbors by the cottages are really great. The neighborhood dogs are sweet and part of the rustic charm. Our son lined-fished from the Fresh Creek dock and caught us dinner one night. We talked to everyone around town, people are really nice and we got the best information that way. Conch salad from the yellow shack near the traffic circle in FC was great, so if they are open, stop by. I found out about it from someone living on a sailboat who works at the US Navy Base. We took the Ferry from Nassau, it was a great trip in and I would recommend it. I did take Dramamine."

  • Must do nature tour!

    "On May 18 ,my wife and I and our two grandchildren of 11 and 14 went with Ed on a nature tour to see the blue holes. This is a great experience for adults and kids alike. Ed is very knowledgeable about the plants and animals that you will see. This tour is worth the experience even if you are not normally interested in plants and animals. The scenery and the blue holes are spectacular with a lot of fun wildlife along the way. On our first day, Ed told us about a bat cave but weather did not allow us to see it. The kids wanted to see the bats so much that Ed was willing to take us back the next day. I was quite surprised at all the different things that I didn't noticed the first time through. At the end of the tour, Ed had some fresh coconuts that he cut open and shared coconut juice and coconut meat with us. He also had some fruit that he picked in his yard that morning. This was a really great finish to a very enjoyable tour. Ed gave us a short tour of the local communities with a little bit of history. I would highly recommend Ed as your guide for this cultural and nature tour."

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.

Winters are moderately drier and often the preferred season to visit.
