Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Relax to the Waves at this Oceanfront Getaway located right on the beach in the Settlement of Guana Cay. Guana Cay offers gorgeous beaches, great people, good times. And Dolphin View House will help you get the most out of your vacation.

In this charming two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage, you’re surrounded by island life — literally. Mounted fish and other sea creatures dot the walls (there’s even a boar!). In fact, a lot of thought has gone into the decorations in our little piece of paradise — we want every bit of your vacation to feel like vacation, from the moment you wake up, to the time you fall a sleep. And a lot of that is in the details. The cottage is full of island art, like sea glass lamps and paintings. The cypress interior underscore the island feel.

We offer high speed wireless Internet and Direct TV by satellite, so you can stay in touch with the outside world if you want to.

Dolphin View House is nestled on a large property with three more apartments in two houses — so if you’re coming with friends or family, it’s a great way to enjoy time together, but maintain privacy.

Relax in the outdoor seating area under a thatched umbrella, cook up delicious meals on the grill. There are plenty of shared spaces, but the large ocean front deck is private - only for you.

Walk down the sand dune and you’re on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Miles and miles of white sand. Build a sand castle, collect shells or sea glass and swim, snorkel and explore the reefs. Kick it up for a notch and catch a wave, or go for a run on the beach right at your doorstep. Hungry? Thirsty? Walk on the dune to the famous Nipper's Beach Bar and Grill. Or, walk just about anywhere else in the settlement, too: Dolphin View House is incredibly central — just a two-minute walk to the settlement and less than a 10-minute walk to the grocery or liquor stores, or to the other bars and restaurants on the island. You’re so close to everything — but yet private! There is a private road leading to the property, so you are secluded.

Since you’re close to just about everything, you really don’t need to rent a golf cart. But, if you choose to, the rental location is close. Maybe you would like to rent bikes to explore Guana Cay at a slower pace.

Fly into Marsh Harbour (MHH), take an eight-minute taxi ride to the ferry terminal and then a short 35-minute ferry ride to Great Guana Cay. Make sure you check the schedules before you book your flight — there are several ferries each day, but the times change seasonally (In high season, the last one leaves Marsh Harbour at 5:45 p.m.). When you arrive, we’ll pick you up from the ferry dock and help you get settled into your vacation home.

After that, how you enjoy our island is up to you: But whatever you do, we’re convinced you’ll love it here.

Why Pamela Dorsey chose Abaco Islands

I loved Great Guana Cay immediately because it was so great for sailing. I went sailing a lot with my kids and friends.

What makes this apartment unique

The view to the ocean is superb and truly unique.

Best Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous!!! Had to talk with owner several times before trip began and felt like she was an old friend every time we talked or emailed.House was perfect! Most beautiful view looking right at the beach with some rock formations right in front of house. Gorgeous turquoise water going out to the bluest, blue water ever! I also worried that Nipper's restaurant would be noisy since it is right next door but never heard it unless we were at nipper's. And food was really good and quite reasonably priced. French fries were like McDonald's-my favorite. The fresh grouper was so good my granddaughter ate it every day! Back to house-loved it-beds awesome-brand new-as comfortable as mine at home and I have a temperpedic. Air worked great. Could also open up and let cool air off ocean blow through and it felt great. Washer and dryer also. We had no loss of power or water entire week which can sometimes happen on the islands.Took my granddaughter and friends for her graduation and can't wait to take husband there. I could go on and on forever about this house. Absolutely love it. Wish it was mine.Would never leave though. I think it would be perfect for anyone or any group.I can't think of anything that would make it any better. Also felt very safe on this island.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, beautiful view, excellent snorkeling and can walk anywhere you need to go. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. Very well equipped and Unni was fabulous to work with. Absolutely no issues or problems with anything. I was worried that Nippers would be loud but was not an issue at all. Would definitely recommend and hope to be able to return to this house again.

OMG

My husband and I stayed for a week at this location. Awesome view and really relalxing. Great porch to just sit and read in a rocking chair and gaze at the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The house is decorated so tropical, from fish to nautical. Very interesting art work all over the house. Great kitchen to use but lots of great restaurants to eat at within walking distance. Great property with a very peaceful setting.

Great Guana Cay is approximately seven miles long with a spectacular beach on the ocean side that offers wonderful swimming, snorkeling and beach combing. There is excellent fishing on the reefs and offshore.

Guana Cay is where you come if you’re looking for peace and quiet. Walk the several miles long beach where you see only a few people, or snorkel, swim or scuba dive. You can rent a bicycle or a golf cart to get around, but you can walk everywhere from the cottage. Guana Cay has many restaurants and bars, souvenir stores, a grocery store, a liquor store, a drug store, and a brand new lunch restaurant next to the ferry dock.

WHAT TO DO IN GUANA CAY

Snorkeling, boating, fishing

Scuba diving, spear fishing
