The house offers an open floor plan including an island with bar stools and a dining room table that seats 8, making Beach Dream perfect for family dinners and entertaining. There is a wall of windows in the great room and dining room overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the gorgeous pink/white sand beach that stretches for miles. The beach house is elevated and offers panoramic views from the large front deck of the wrap around porch.
If you like the best, Beach Dream is for you...it's EXTRAORDINARY! Every detail has been beautifully executed, from the porcelain tile floors to 10' ceilings in the bedrooms and the vaulted cypress tongue and groove ceilings in the great room.
About Great Guana Cay: Great Guana Cay is a barrier island in the Abaco chain of islands in the Bahamas. The third largest barrier reef sits just off shore, offering unlimited snorkeling and SCUBA diving opportunities. A gorgeous reef is right in front of the house that is perfect for snorkeling and is only a short swim away with an easy beach entry.The island has about 150 residents but there are quite a few second homeowners and visitors. Guana Cay is a beautiful tropical island with gorgeous beaches that are never crowded and the color of the water is unbelievable! It is secluded yet has all the necessities.
There are a few restaurants and bars, as well as a grocery store and a liquor store. Dive Guana offers scuba diving and snorkeling trips, and they also rent nice 21ft. to 23ft. boats for fishing, diving or exploring on your own. World-famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill has very good food and they are family-friendly with a swimming pool. It’s always fun and people come from all of the neighboring islands to visit, especially on Sunday afternoon for the weekly pig roast. Grabber's Bar & Grill is fun, too and a great place to watch the beautiful Guana sunset. Beach Dream is within walking distance to all the fun.
Bedroom Details: All of the bedrooms have been furnished with high thread-count sheets and bedding. The master bedroom has a king bed with French doors that open onto the front deck and gorgeous colors of the ocean. The master bath has double sinks with a shower tiled to the ceiling. The second master also has a king bed with its own entrance into the bathroom that can also be accessed from the hallway. It has a tub/shower that is also tiled to the ceiling. The half bath is located near the third and fourth bedrooms. The third bedroom has a queen bed and the fourth bedroom has 2 bunk beds and a twin bed. A new cot can be used in the bunk room for a 4th person (works better for children).
Here’s a nice video about Guana Cay https://youtu.be/QK0iydpnChg (Please note that the extra-large crowds at Nippers seen towards the end of the video occur two weekends a year during the Barefoot Man concerts)
Restaurants and Shops on Great Guana Cay : World-famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill is family-friendly with a swimming pool and consistently excellent food. It’s always fun and people come from all of the neighboring islands to visit, especially on Sunday afternoon for the weekly pig roast. A local character named Milo runs a stand on the main harbour street that offers home-grown vegetables, citrus and lobster tails. Don’t forget Grabber’s for dinner and to watch the spectacular sunsets. Kidd's Cove Seafood is cooking up daily specials and sushi. Another option is Orchid Bay Yacht Club & Marina which has a nice restaurant as well as a full-service marina. Island Flavours offers take-home freshly-cooked food Thursday through Sunday including excellent conch salad. Beach Dream is within walking distance to everything, but it’s fun to rent a golf cart for a day or two to explore the entire seven mile island.

Beach Dream is a spectacular beach house located on Great Guana Cay in the Abaco chain of islands in the Bahamas. Great Guana Cay has a gorgeous pink-white sand beach that stretches for miles along the ocean and is never crowded. The house has tremendous views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a magnificent reef for snorkeling and shore dives is just off the beach in front of the house. There is great deep-sea fishing just beyond the nearby barrier reef which is the third longest in the world. On the other side of the island is the Sea of Abaco known as the 'cruising capital' of the Bahamas due to its calm waters and beautiful anchorages. Beach Dream is conveniently located to all of the restaurants and shops and is just a short walk up the beach from world famous Nipper's Beach Bar and Grill.
Other Activities: excellent snorkeling in front of the house, boating, deep-sea fishing
A golf cart is needed to access the ultra-exclusive Baker's Bay Golf and Ocean Club which is a playground for the rich and famous at the north end of the island. Sometimes they allow visitors to enter for lunch, appetizers and drinks at the Conch Shack or dinner in the restaurant. It is a well-run resort that is newly developed but membership is required to play golf at the Tom Fazio-designed course.
Don't be surprised if you spot someone famous at Nippers or Grabbers as they like to venture out of Bakers Bay and have fun, too!

Why the Owner Chose Central Abaco, The Bahamas:
We traveled throughout the Bahamas for over 20 years exploring different islands. When it came time to build our dream house, we chose the most spectacular island that offered everything we wanted...GREAT GUANA CAY!
