MAN-O-WAR WILL CHARM YOU....
... and LookOut Ridge offers the quintessential opportunity to properly appreciate the Island Paradise. The Bahamian roots of this property have been honored and enhanced. Its expert combination of materials, design elements, and finely appointed furnishings create a very special retreat that is the essence of quiet, simple luxury.
Man-O-War Cay in the Abaco Island Chain is by far the most beautifully charming in the Bahamas; it is truly a tropical Paradise. Rich in history, it was settled in the 1700s by Loyalists wishing to remain under British rule and today still retains something of a colonial flavor. Its still thriving boat building industry and the services of the Man-O-War Marina ensure that all your boating needs are easily met.
LookOut Ridge perches on one of the highest points on the island; from there you enjoy wonderful breezes and incredibly gorgeous views of the Sea of Abaco in front and Eastern Harbour behind. The Sea of Abaco side has its own swim platform with hand hewn steps to the water. On the Eastern Harbour side is your own dock. It is extremely private and quiet, insuring ample opportunity for relaxation. Two kayaks are available at the cottage and more can be rented at the Marina for exploration, beach fun, or just visiting the settlement. Motor boats are also available for fishing trips and visiting other nearby islands. What fun going everywhere by boat or footpath! The area offers first class diving and snorkeling on the third largest coral reef in the world! The settlement has 2 great restaurants, a very good grocery store, and several small shops and is accessed by boat or a footpath along the waters edge (see the cottage's 3 ring binder in the cottage for more detail as well as all the owners' personal recommendations and insights).
The owners areas of expertise, painting, graphics, and interior design are evident in the meticulous care and attention to detail seen throughout the property.
