Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

You sometimes are hesitant when renting a villa/home in a location you have never been. This was no mistake!! Watch Hill is an absolutely amazing property! You will not be disappointed. Plenty of towels to include beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella for the sand, hand soap in all bathrooms, sunscreen, bug spray.. you name it and it was there. We wanted for nothing during our visit which just wasn't long enough. We tried all four restaurants on the island and spent a full day on the water with Ricky Sands, highly recommend him as well. I cannot say enough about the location, the villa, the island, the owner and the property manager. Don't hesitate! Do however keep in mind that this is a rental. A few comments from previous reviews mentioned upgrading the pots and pans and a few new steak knives. It was noticed, but did not at all change my mind about the property. Beds were comfy too! We so look forward to coming back soon!!! Thanks again for an amazing stay Watch HIll!

beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house was perfect- location, view, décor, caretaker and of course the island where it is located. The house was a perfect size for 4 adults and 2 children. The owner has supplied everything you need for enjoying the beach , snorkeling and relaxing.

Great location on Guana Cay.

  • 4 of 5

Spent Christmas vacation with the kids here. Had a great time. We have been to previous locals, but this was the family favorite to date. Guana Cay requires some strategic planning, but is worth the trouble. Renting a boat for a few days was key. Expect NYC prices in restaurants and bars. Watch Hill is located perfectly on the island. I would highly recommend it.

Watch Hill

  • 4 of 5

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

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week over New Year's at Watch Hill. As a family group, we loved Great Guana Key with its laid back vibe and beautiful beaches. Watch Hill has a great location on the Atlantic side of the island making for good afternoon breezes and morning beach walks. We rented a golf cart and a boat for the week from Troy, both of which were indispensable for exploring the Cay and the surrounding islands because GG is small if you some variety to your days. An easy boat ride for day trips to Man o War and Elbow Cay. Also fun to get out and try some fishing. Watch Hill has a cottage feel, more barefoot relaxed than luxurious but has everything you need. It is well stocked for kitchen needs and linens, has a spacious feel and a wonderful deck overlooking the ocean - a the place to be for morning coffee. Eating out is fun, just a golf cart ride to Grabbers, or a walk up the beach to Nippers.

No complaints, a great way to build family time!
