  • Beautiful and very comfortable!

    "We had a wonderful vacation in Exuma and we felt very comfortable in this condo. The views here are absolutely breathtaking! The pictures on this site do not do justice to this beautiful location. The infinity pool overlooks a sugar white beach and a true Bahamas colors sea. This condo is very spacious, comfortable and clean; we found everything that we needed: extra sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, kitchen has lots of cooking utensils, pans, etc. We were 4 adults and 4 children ages 2-9 and we appreciated having a washer and dryer. Beds were comfortable and all the furniture felt comfortable as well. Two upstairs bedrooms share a large terrace overlooking the pool, beach and beautiful sea beyond. We could not help but notice that the landscaping is well designed and well maintained. The condo is well built and it features a folding glass wall on the ground floor that can be opened entirely to (again!) the beautiful views! and a spacious patio a few steps from the hot tub and pool. There are stores within 5 minutes by car, a butcher shop and fish market, a supermarket in Georgetown, and lots of places to eat out. All the locals we met were very friendly and helpful! For 10 wonderful days we explored Great and Little Exumas by car and lots of cays and Stocking Island by boat! We found very few beaches where we were not alone. What a heavenly piece of Earth! Thank you!"

  • It doesn't get any better than this!

    "Just got back from a week at this beautiful home. We were a family of 6 adults and 2 children under two. It was absolutely perfect in every way. It was the first time we have ever rented a home with a pool and now it will be a must! If we weren't in the boat, we were in the pool. The view was unbeatable. We have been to Elbow Cay several times and it is a great, relaxing island - and also the friendliest I have been to. If you are an architect and into wood, you will also totally appreciate this home (as my husband did)!"

  • Peaceful Bliss!!

    "Our time at SurfSong was one of the most wonderful weeks of my life. We had near-perfect weather, and since our visit came a bit after the main 'season', we had one of the most beautiful beaches in the world largely to ourselves. Every day upon waking to the sound of the surf, I would look out the window and be amazed at the opportunity to be in such a beautiful, peaceful place. SurfSong is a great mix of casual beach house with the comforts of home. Since it's not close to resorts or towns, it's like a private paradise. Winnie, the housekeeper, came every day and put fresh flowers in every room and made sure the house was clean. She was helpful and unobtrusive - and I wanted to record her laugh so I could hear it again when I got back to the US! It take a bit of driving to get to the nearest store or restaurant, so Surfsong is best for people who enjoy preparing and sharing meals together. We had some incredible meals made with fish caught that day by the fisherman of Tarpum Bay (about 20 minutes away). As a side note, getting used to driving on the left hand side of the road - even with a US car with the steering wheel on the left side - was easy. The biggest challenge was coming up with any reason to leave the house and beach!) That said, a day trip to Harbour Island (a short boat trip from the dock near the North Eleuthera airport) is a fantastic outing. The drive to get there takes you across the Glass Window bridge with the Atlantic on one-side and the Caribbean on the other - a stunning and beautiful natural spectacle. Harbour Island has numerous restaurants and other tourist attractions and can be toured by renting a golf cart upon arrival at the dock. (The beach is rated as one of the 5 best in the world! - and the beach at Surfsong was comparable!) I give SurfSong my highest recommendation for any group that wants a beautiful, peaceful getaway."

  • A Perfect Getaway

    "This place was perfect for our stay. It was immaculately clean, and there was everything you need in the cottage. Chad did everything to make sure that we had all of the information we needed before and during our stay, and even had a soccer party when the US was playing in the World Cup. Sand Dollar Cove Cottages are located 25 minutes from Marsh Harbor - the closest coffee shops, restaurants; it was the perfect peaceful vacation. My husband enjoyed bonefishing on the flats right outside the door, I loved walking on the beach with Chad's dog. There are sea kayaks and two motor boats that you can use. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back!! Thanks, Chad for a great time!"

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.
