Casauina Point is located about 25 minutes south of Marsh Harbour. It's a spectacular beach that is one of the most beautiful in the Bahamas. It is an ideal area for walking, swimming, beach combing, snorkeling and kayaking. The beach is perfect for kids of any age as it never gets deep unless you wade far off shore. If you want to get lobsters, just take the boat out and start hunting.
It also is in the best area to be located for bone fishing on Abaco. Centrally located on the island, it is an easy drive to Sandy Point at the southern end of the island where you can fish Crossing Harbour, close to Snake Cay, a renowned area, and the flats off Duck Cay located a 5 minute boat ride from the cottages. Huge white sand flats will keep you on fish all day long.
We will provide you with a guide of where to fish.
The cottages come with 2 aluminum boats with outboard motors.The boats are included in the rental.
You only pay for gas and you must sign a damage waiver.
The cottages have a beautiful view of the ocean from your 30' screened porch. One unit has a queen bed, ensuite bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. The Great Room has 13' ceilings, 2 fans / lights, 32” flat screen, DVD/CD player, high speed WiFi and central air. Two other similar units are available. The second unit has twin beds or King on request and the third is a studio with a queen Murphy Bed.
The area is super safe ...... we don't ever lock doors!
Marsh Harbour offers every amenity. There are large super markets, excellent wine stores ( we recommend Bristol's or Jimmy's ) and many specialty shops.
Abaco is also famous for its Blue Holes, which are fresh water caves that run for thousands of feet underground through the limestone substrate that makes up the island. The cottages are very close to the Blue Holes. Divers come from around the world to explore this phenomena. See the August 2010 issue of National Geographic magazine for more info.
From Marsh Harbour, Albury's Ferry service will take you the wonderful Cays that are 10 – 15 minutes off shore. The historic settlements date back 300 years. Hope Town on Elbow Cay, Man o' War Cay and Guana Cay are well worth the trip.
We built these 3 rental units in 2008. I also live on the property in a separate house and provide 24 hour management. Any request you have we can arrange.
Chad Efinger purchased this condo in 2008
The beach is so incredible. It is such a perfect place for families with young kids or avid bone fishermen.
Situated on a huge bonefish flat, close to Marsh Harbour and close to the numerous Blue Holes of Abaco
Excellent property. Comes with a boat and 2 lovely dogs.
We have rented a cottage at Chad's for several years now and have never been disappointed.
We can highly recommend this property.
First off - let me say that we are only half way through our stay and I could not resist writing a review already. The best way I can describe Sand Dollar Cottages is to be off the grid with all the comforts of home. Chad, the owner, has thought of everything. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was how immaculately clean our cottage was. I managed high end hotels for years so my standards are very high - our accomdations could not of been better. Our cottage comes with a 14' foot boat but we have found that is all we have needed as there is a lot to explore - other cays and beaches nearby that are not Inhabitated. As a matter of fact - one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life - Little Bay - is just a short boat ride away and completely deserted. We have found it unnecessary to rent another boat or use the ferry service as we everywhere we want to go is right outside our door in casuarina point. Chad has plenty of water toys so you can swim, paddleboard, kayak, snorkel or fish right here. We have caught enough fish already to fed a small army - and that's in the off season with no guides! Several things I love about being here: Chad is on the property. He is a wealth of information and he will go out of his way to get you whatever you want or need if it's not here already. His dogs - Sasha and Sheba are friendly and come over to visit as often as you like. If you have pets at home you are missing - Sasha and Sheba are excellent fill in's. You will feel very comfortable here - everything in the house is easy to find, there is a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, linens,towels and lots of extra's. We are less then 25 minutes from Marsh Harbour and it's an easy ride (as long as you remember to drive on the left side). You do need a car though as we have had to and wanted to run into town for various things. Overall, there is nothing more we could of asked for on this vacation. We are already thinking of returning and our friends that would enjoy this place just as much
A few things to know:
- a car is highly recommended
- the bugs are BAD. Get bug spray on your way and rubbing alcohol as it soothes the itch immediately if you are bit.
- Groceries here are about three times the cost in the states. (I.e. A bag of oreo's is $9.00).
- Gas is about $6.00/gallon. Plan for that for the boat and car.
Overall - I think we have found a regular vacation spot and would highly recommend!!
Excellent property! The cottage was in great shape, clean, and close to all the things we wanted to do while we were there. If you want to see Abaco, the property was centrally located for visits to Treasure Cay, Marsh Harbour, Hope Town, Little Harbour, south Abaco, etc. The beach, weather and water at Casuarina were delightful. Chad and family were full of information and we enjoyed talking to them. We are looking forward to returning within the next year.
Delightful, personable and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day stay to sunny ABACO. Beach, shelling and the unofficial nature preserve nearby were highlights to add to our romantic holiday. Bring bug spray. Also, ask Chad about the private beach accross the shallow sea. PERFECT.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our 7 day stay at our sand dollar cottage. My first reaction was "this place is spotless"....My very important requirement for an enjoyable stay.We loved being "off the beaten path" so to say. I felt the comfort of the natural untouched beauty of this place. It fed my soul and restored my spirit. The night sky, without new jerseys light pollution was magnificent. Our host, Chad, was very helpful with any questions we had. Sassy was a delight. Oh, we loved having the opportunity to swim in sawmill blue hole.
Hope to stay two weeks next time.
Jane and I had the most wonderful time at Chads..His attention to detail was 2nd to none. We enjoyed the pot cake dogs...Ron and Vera our neighbors from Belgium were delightful and interesting fishing partners. The Island is off the beaten path and Chads place is even one step further on the positive side! Relaxation at its best! the Bonefishing is great! two weeks next time! Thank you Chad!
Casuarina Point is one of Abaco's Top beaches. You can walk for miles and never see a soul but for the wild life.....fishing , shelling, exploring or just sitting on your screened porch sipping a cool drink and reading a good book
