Property description

Your beach is IMMEDIATELY outside your back door, and your bay (with your own dock) is IMMEDIATELY outside your front door. Your property extends 100 feet shore-to-shore, from a lovely and pristine beach ocean-side to a quiet bay on the westside. From the open-air patio suitable for private sunning, stargazing, or coffee at sunrise, you have a picturesque view through palm trees of waves breaking over a bountiful coral reef, less than a mile off-shore. Between the reef and your toes is the warm and translucent gulf-stream water floating north from the equator (providing abundant marine life) and the finest sugar-sand. Just lift your head from your bed to see the sunrise along an endless ocean horizon. After a full day of exploring and/or relaxing, savor every moment of the western sunset from the stable crow's nest or dock.

Truly idyllic: no cars, no bars, no hotels on this small but well-functioning island. The settlement, a pleasant 15 minute walk down the Queens Highway path, is comprised of gracious, hard-working English-Bahamians whose primary industry is hand-crafted boat building. You'll enjoy walking through this village of artisans, and find keepsakes to treasure memories of the adventure, beckoning your return.

The charming home you're in is comprised of three rooms: 1) the Great Room of living, dining, and fully functional kitchen, 2) bathroom with shower, and 3) a master bedroom with queen size bed and storage closet. Great Room has four daybeds, which are couches that double as sleeping bunks with wooden storage space under each. All sides of home have abundant windows for viewing the natural land and water surroundings, which can also be seen from each of the bunks. The Berry Patch has WiFi for your wireless equipment.

Man-0-War Cay is easy to access from the States: a one-hour airplane flight from the east coast of Florida to the town of Marsh Harbour on Abaco, then a quick taxi ride through town to the ferry docks, where a 20 minute water taxi disembarks you to paradise!
