Property description

Captains View is a cozy two bedroom beach house overlooking the southern bay of Cherokee Sound. The use of a 14ft boat and outboard motor is your additional rental option at the time of reservations .The front porch is definitely the most frequently used area of the home partly because of the view but also because it provides a shady, secluded, breezy spot to relax during your vacation. It is the perfect place to have your morning coffee, read a book in the afternoon, or retire after a long day of bone fishing.

The House is situated only a few footsteps away from the Long Dock where you can swim ,fish ,tan ,picnic and relax. There are many flat sand bars to walk on during the low tides; they are great places to find beautiful shells and sea life . Early tides bring in the fish including the allusive 'Bonefish' that rome freely along the shallow banks of Southern Bay. 'The Long Dock ' and its uncounted wooden pieces has with stood many hurricanes sometimes with little reconstruction needed . This dock is a pillar for the community and is loved by the residents, as well as non residents , both old and young, have helped maintain its condition giving them use and enjoyment. There is loads of history is Cherokee from early settlements so make sure to bring your hiking shoes! There are networks of uncharted paths from several hundred of years ago to be explored . There was wooden boats ,vessels and smacks built for many years on the shore of the inner creek. The art work on the living room wall will reveal that time period . You can learn more stories like this by meeting friendly locals of Cherokee and hearing about the history of this place.

Guests have access to Watching Bay beach, on the ocean side through a private development 'The Reserve at Watching bay '. This is all within walking distance, but bicycles are great for riding through town, especially if you need to go to the grocery store. You can also rent a vehicle in Marsh Harbour beforehand to get around the island in if you wish to leave Cherokee Settlement.

The uniqueness of this home is not only what it does have but it doesn’t have. By separating yourself from land line phones(which we do not have in the home!)you can find other ways to entertain yourselves. However, keep in mind that there is free wireless internet access available so you can bring your business with you if you insist! Cable TV will give and added option for relazation and news information if needed . We hope you will come enjoy a peaceful vacation with the ones you love at Captains View in Cherokee.

Cherokee Sound is and area surrounded by shallow water and creeks that contain many fish species like bonefish .The most sort after is the bone fish but barracuda is also common .In the area there is several beaches on which shells and sea glass can be found . The history of the town is routed in fishing and is a very quite ,slow paced ,relaxing place to vacation .

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I'm an out going bahamian .I love the outdoors, fishing ,free diving ,boating ,taking my wave runner out for a spin and off roading in a ATV or truck. I have knowledge and first hand experience of the area in and around Cherokee. I guide on the sea as well as the land .Deep sea charters and guided trips can be arranged and booked .If you have your own boat I can guide and help with sight seeing covering Cherokee area , central Abaco and its cays and almost any part of Abaco .Bird watching , remote beaches and deep woods trips are also an option for charter .

Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Sound, Bahamas:
I purchased this home back in 1993 because of its panoramic sea-coast view. Captains View is named after its original owner Capt. Roy P. Russell J.P. This was his retirement home and may be mines as well one day! Although I didn't buy it initially to rent it out, after renovating it many friends and visitors asked me to open it up to the rental possibilities. In order to share the undiscovered area I have rented it only to a select few. This home is very precious to me and my daughters so I'm selective about who I rent to. With this VRBO being my first internet outreach, Even though i have rented for 22 years i will still only rent to a few and your satisfaction will repeat your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is so ideally located that once you arrive the beach ,dock and water is all in your sight that's it for your transportation needs . Bonefish.....Bonefish on the door step .This can save on a rental car /van .Should you choose a rental car /van it can be parked close for easy access . Every where you want to go is accessible by foot, a bike or skateboard. If you come by boat the water is deep enough off the long dock that you can anchor out in the bay and see it from the porch. The two orange kayaks can be launched right from the bridge creek beach. The front porch will offer you the best sunrises and sunsets. The front porch is always a good place to avoid the sun and catch conversation with guest or locals. For people with young children they can watch their kids play safely on the beach less than 50 feet away from the porch. Another unique benefit is you don't have to go far to catch a nights meal. Simply cast out your hook and line of the long dock and your sure to catch a feast. The front area of the house is great for children and adults hanging around ,talking, laughing and listening to music. You can crack coconuts and make coconut water, eat sea grapes, cocoplums , catch fish and retire after eating to a nice movie in the living room.
