Amazing property, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the ferry with our golf cart and our luggage taken to home, Lisa gave us a brief tour as she drove us to the home in our golf cart.

The home is amazing, each bedroom was beautifully decorated and entire house was beyond our expectations. It was immaculately clean!! Best home we have ever rented. Everything that you would need to make it an exceptional vacation is in the home. The back deck and porch was a spectacular place to watch the sunset and the bay. The marina has a pool for use by guests of home. We stayed 5 days for a family wedding, the location, home and island were a special paradise.

I highly recommend this property for those looking to stay on Great Guana Cay!!!

When we walked into the home for the first time my husband said, "You hit the jackpot with this one!" The floor plan of the home is the best that we have stayed in and takes advantage of the gorgeous Sea of Abaco views with windows/doors out the entire back and most of the one side of the house. It is evident that the owners use this property frequently because it is so well appointed, stocked and maintained. The house has everything you could need with a well stocked kitchen, comfortable seating/furniture, beautiful porches, plenty of towels, games, etc. The home was very clean and well organized. All of the beds had comfortable, high quality mattresses and bedding. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom, which was perfect. There are plenty of places to sit comfortably and be alone to read, but also lots of space for the family to gather together.

Our favorite part of the home was the dock! I was hesitant to stay on the sea instead of the beach, but it turned out to be the best experience ever. There was always a beautiful breeze on the doc. My husband and I had coffee on the dock early each morning and every evening our family (kids ages 17 and 10) would hang out on the dock and talk. This house was perfect for enjoying quality, relaxing family time. The beach is very close by, so we had the best of both worlds. The home is also walking distance to the community pool and restaurant.

We have stayed in Great Guana before at other properties and have also used VRBO in the Exumas, North Captiva and several other island locations. This is by far the best home that we have rented.

In addition to the beautiful home, the owner was very nice and easy to work with! The experience was simply wonderful!

We can't wait to go back and stay at Abaco Baby!

Amazing Abaco Baby

  • 5 of 5

Abaco Baby was beyond my expectations! So much fun, so much to see & do on Great Guana & surrounding Cays.

Golf cart & boat are a must!

The owner's attention to detail is amazing. If you need it, it is there. The most beautifully themed decorated VRBO home I have ever stayed in. We snorkeled right off the houses private dock & the beach looks like a postcard! I will definitely come back. Some friends visited one day from Hopetown & could not get over how great & perfect the home was!!

I love you Abaco Baby

Beautiful Baby !

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful view looking out onto the Sea of Abaco. This was the cleanest house i have ever rented and i am a clean freak. I originally told my wife they must of hired a designer to decorate the house, because it looks so good. Turns out that the owners did all the decorating. Our family is in the decorating business and help people everyday picking out colors fabrics etc.They did a unbelievable job !

Hadn't been back to Guana in 16yrs. I was a beautiful as i remember. We explored, snorkeled, scuba dived, laid on our rafts behind our boat on the north beach. Had an incredible time. If your looking for a clean, well laid out house, and the most convenient rental house on the island (close to everything) Abaco Baby is the way to go !!!!

Spectacular, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Abaco Baby is one of the best rental properties on the entire island. It is immaculate. We travel with another couple and our kids, and this house has everything we need. The decor is spectacular. The location in Orchid Bay, a private neighborhood, is safe and close to everything. The caretakers at Orchid Bay Marina are so helpful and responsive. We love to cook the fresh fish our guys catch during the day and the kitchen has everything we need. It is within walking distance of everything important. But most of all it is such a beautiful, spectacular, comfortable, amazing, wonderful home… once you are there you will never want to leave. YOU WILL LOVE ABACO BABY!!

One of the BEST !!!

  • 5 of 5

Have been to Great Guana Cay many times, this was our first rental in Orchid Bay staying at Abaco Baby. Probably the best house we've ever stayed in. The walk to the dock seating is short and safe, with amazing views. The house is extremely well kept, as shown in the pics. The private beach areas in Orchid Bay are serene and quite breath taking. Three people were first timers to Guana, and they are already discussing the next trip, typical. DO not overlook this VRBO, we use it for many of our travels and this Abaco Bay will not disappoint. Thank You to the owners, and we will be back.

Abaco Baby is located in Orchid Bay on Great Guana Cay. We are just a short walk from the restaurant and marina. The tennis court is across from the house. All Orchid Bay guests have access to the Beach Pavillion at High Rocks, a private beach. Guests are also welcome to use the pool at the marina. The small grocery store is a short distance from the house. The beach bars/restaurants are also within walking distance, but most guests rent a golf cart while on the island.
