"We had a thoroughly enjoyable week at Backroads Bahama Villa. The house is large and accommodated us well with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. We went to Little Harbor to meet up with friends that participated in the Regatta Time in Abaco. The house was the perfect spot for our group and provided those that had been living on the sailboat with an opportunity to get their toes on land, shower, sleep in a bedroom, do laundry, etc. I would describe the house as rustic (off the grid!) but very comfortable. The landscaping was beautiful. We are familiar with solar power, inverters and generators so it wasn't a challenge for us. All of the necessities were provided including kitchenware, towels, sheets, wifi, fans and such. Take the owner's advice and come prepared for the no see-ums and mosquitos and you'll have no issue. The caretaker was very helpful. Fantastic views from both the front and rear decks of the house and an elevated deck on a cliff that overlooks Little Harbor. It's an awesome location in a remote area where the biggest attraction is the crystal clear water! We snorkeled the many nearby reefs and blue holes seeing a lot of beautiful coral and sea life. And Pete's Pub - what a fantastic bar/restaurant serving excellent local food and, of course, plenty of fruity rum drinks! Pete's Gallery showcases some fabulous bronze work and we were lucky enough to be invited to visit the foundry to see a pouring. At the house, the large dining table, kitchen and grill was cause for celebration for many freshly prepared meals with our group. We truly had an amazing experience! I would recommend renting a car if you wish to visit other areas of the island such as Marsh Harbor and Cherokee Sound. It was also very cost effective to rent a van and provide our own transfers to and from the airport. We were lucky and had several boats there for our aquatic adventures! Super laid back and relaxing! It was fun being off the grid!"

"we had a great time. The house is perfect for three couples
The AC worked with a separate unit for upstarts
The kitchen had everything we needed and there are plenty of towels
The island is small with a golf cart trip around it taking less than 30 minutes.
We were able to get a boat slip at the private dock included with our rental, we rented a boat at Marsh Harbor and made the easy 8 mile trip across the bay.
We tried fishing and loberstering on our own with out much success and them hired Edmond Pinder for the day. This was the best money we spent. His local knowledge and great personality made the trip. With his help we had more lobster and conch than we could eat
Ask for him at the Vegtable stand on Front street our dive shop. If possible bring your own pole spears.If you enjoy a week on the beach and boat this is the place for you.
We left light rods in the storage room but you will need reels.
Nippers was overrated, I'd call it a dump the food was good.
I expect we will return to Guana Cay"

"We were tired of the loud crowded all-inclusive holidays. Tired of beaches that you had to get up at 5 in the morning to stake claim to your chair....
As soon as we arrived at the villa I knew we were going to love it! The villa was immaculate, and well appointed. The pool was clean and its surroundings lush with colorful tropical plants surrounding it.
The priority for me is the beach. I've been to beaches around the world, and for many reasons, this one beats them all!
- the sand is extremely fine... Like flour
- it is wide with very little seaweed washed ashore
- the water is fairly shallow, which makes it light blue and great for kids and adults alike for swim and play
- very few people on the beach
- miles of walkable beach no stones
-lots of shells to collect
- we saw an Eagle Ray, a pod of dolphins, starfish, oodles of fish.
Sometimes there are no chairs at the beach at all... You just ask and they will be brought down from the locker. That's how quiet it is.
And if you like touring around, there is lots to do too!"
