About Beverly

Hello, John and Beverly Roselli are the proud owners of Frangipani Cottage.

Beverly purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Beverly chose Great Guana Cay

Guana Cay is a very special island who's full time residents make you feel welcome. We had our cottage built after vacationing through-out the Bahamas and felt most 'at home' on Guana Cay.

What makes this cottage unique

We have a community dock just feet from our front porch. But even though it is a shared dock your boat will probably be the only boat docked there. Don't have a boat? Use the dock for swimming, snorkling and sunbathing. Bring your fishing rod and catch snappers for dinner.

Well equipped and cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights. It was comfortable for the 2 of us but would be crowded with 4 adults in the living area of the cottage. The 2 en-suite bedrooms were spacious. The location is ideal and it was nice to watch the action on the Sea of Abaco.

The television is tiny. It would be a big plus if the tv was upgraded to a larger size.

The cottage is well kept and located close to beach access and not far from the

All that you can hope for!

  • 5 of 5

Gina, the manager promptly met us at the ferry dock with our golf cart and showed us to the Frangi

Pani house. It's in the perfect location in between the Settlement and Bakers Bay with a gorgeous view. House was very clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. A/C was also more than sufficient. We would definitely stay here again!

A perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

My 14 year old son and I wanted to spend 4 days on Guana Cay. Frangipani Cottage hit the spot: 2 bedrooms so we each had our privacy, plus its own dock for the power boat we rented. And if we didn't want to walk into town, plenty of people driving their golf carts up and down the road were willing to give us a lift. This kept us from having to rent our own golf cart on top of the power boat. Plus, for snorkelers, there is a lot of good snorkeling up and down the shoreline where the dock is located. The house is adequately stocked with kitchen supplies as well as DVDs and movies for evening entertainment.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay at Frangipani Cottage. I guess the stormy weather prediction turned out sunny and warm after all. Happy snorkeling!

Our stay at Frangipani was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Here's a few things that might help out a new traveler to Guana Cay. The owners of Frangipani were always there to answer my questions with prompt return phone calls which was nice. They are very accommodating. First we stopped off at Maxwell's Grocery store in Marsh Harbor to get supplies. Our taxi driver stopped at the liquor store too. Then we bought ferry tickets (10) at a discount price. Gina, the care taker, picked up our golf cart rental and had it waiting at the dock when the ferry arrived. She took us to the house which is in a great location. We loved the front porch overlooking the sea and spending time on the dock. The house has everything you could need. Both bedrooms have a bathroom which was convenient. We did bring a soft cooler to take on the boat with us which we recommend. We boated to several islands nearby and shopped and ate out. We also went to shell beach. The water is easy to read so you don't have to worry about running aground. The wi-fi worked for 1 phone (Galazy) but not the iPhones. But it really is better to disconnect to reconnect with your family and friends. We definitely will return to Frangipani again because it was the perfect house to rent at a great price in a perfect location.
