About the Property
2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) ON the Ocean!
Beach Haven is extremely well equipped with amenities, cooking & comfort items (as many renters have put it - 'anything you could possibly need').
The crashing surf is constant and soothing. As we are on the windward side of the island, breezes are consistent 90% of the time (which keeps 'no-see-ums' and other pests away).
… sleeping peacefully with your head 90 feet from the sounds of the rolling surf. ... Or sunning on the deck, or lazing in the hammock just 60 to 90 feet from the ocean.
I remember thinking to myself my first night at Beach Haven:
“With this loud ocean, I’ll never be able to slee….. zzzzzzzzzz! “
Azure water, swaying coconut palms and natural, old world beauty on the outside. Elegantly appointed and very well equipped on the inside.
Our guests tell us that "pictures simply cannot do Beach Haven justice". To help with this a bit, I created four, short video tours in August, 2015. Scroll down ~ 3/4 down this page to "Links to more information:" then the four "CLICK HERE" links. These are links to the short videos on youtube.
Restorative, peaceful, magical, well appointed amidst raw nature, private, a unique vibe ... these are words our visitors commonly use to describe Beach Haven.
It has been said that “exceptionally high levels of vibrational energy can be found in places of great beauty”.
This is Beach Haven! Your oceanfront Haven to get away from it all!!

We are cautious about infants/small children as the house is not child-proofed. For example, the fireplace features a stone hearth and the deck rails are somewhat open. That being said, we've had kids of all ages without incident (though some teens can get bored ;-)....moreless

Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, Beds for 4-6
- All beds are King size. Both bedrooms are spacious with lovely cedar cathedral ceilings and ceiling fans. The Bedroom to left (as you enter) is the master and offers an updated bath, walk-in closet, and room for an optional crib. Sofa bed in the great room is one of the sturdiest & most comfortable I've ever slept in. The full baths are on the far side of each bedroom, which can be a privacy issue for any persons sleeping in the Living Room who would need to pass through....moreless
Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms
- Ample counter space on either side of sinks in both bathrooms for two.
- Beach Haven sits on an eight mile, fine white powder sand beach to walk on (one of the longest in the entire Caribbean!). Two dozen swaying coconut palms on the Beach Haven lot alone! Two hammocks, deck chairs, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, skim boards, beach toys, games, outdoor shower, hair dryers, vibrating recliner, home theater, astronomical binoculars & tripod ... and more. Each bedroom features a cathedral ceiling and extends out to a screened-in porch with soothing ocean views. Great room with 2 inch cedar cathedral ceiling, fireplace, open kitchen & dining area, and a 180 degree view of the turquoise Atlantic! There is also a large, very comfy sofa bed in the great room, so Beach Haven can sleep up to six comfortably. The great room and both screened in porches extend to a massive deck (60’ x 20’) that sits less than 30 yards from the crashing ocean surf. Regular stiff Atlantic breezes & ceiling fans (6 total) keep all rooms 'breezin' - AC often not needed....moreless

We are 20 minutes from the town Marsh Harbour, Abaco's central hub. All but the last mile of the drive to Beach Haven is highway. We are also 20 minutes from Cherokee, 10 minutes from Causarina, Crossing Rocks or Schooner Bay and only 5 miles from Sawmill Sink blue hole!
Most of our renters will visit several of these spots along with Treasure Cay beach (50 minutes) and will take a ferry to one of Abaco's many outlying cays (Hopetown on Elbow Cay with the candy-striped lighthouse being the most popular). But the biggest regret we hear is not simply spending more time just chilling on our deck or beach!
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Christian, non-smokers. Hotel director and pharmacist. Blessed with 2 children & 2 grandsons, and blessed to 'borrow this place from God for a while'.
Why the Owner Chose South Abaco, The Bahamas:
We searched the Cayman's, Virgin islands, FL keys, and out islands of the Bahamas (every isle from Aruba to Kauai) for decades in search of our dream home. None of our rentals came close to what this location has to offer and more. It is also very close to the U.S. (~180 miles), is protected by the U.S military, and bases it's dollar upon ours (no need for exchange). It has the beauty parts of Florida may have had a century ago, without the congestion & crime, but with most of today's modern infrastructure. To us it offers the best of both worlds.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Getting away from it ALL, while enjoying the beauty of beach, ocean, palms, rare birds and phenomenal views of the Milky Way. This place possesses a unique and restorative beauty. We leave so relaxed that it seems you could pour us into a glass. On an average day, you may see one person on our beach, one of the longest in the Caribbean. The residents are largely friendly, honest, religious folk in touch with what's important. It's about as close as we've come to heaven on Earth.
