About Robert Heimann

Elisabeth and I have been sailing the Caribbean and the Bahamas for over 25 years. We often anchored at Great Guana Cay and when the time came to come ahsore we were not in doubt where we wanted to be. We feel lucky to be retired and able to spend most of the winter here. Summers are spent on Shelter Island, NY with the kids and grandkids.

Robert Heimann purchased this cottage in 2008

Perfect Waterfront Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well-maintained home with everything we needed for a perfect vacation. It basically has 3 master suites, with the 4th bedroom also having it's own bathroom right across the hall. The large, open living area, with the deck attached, makes for plenty of space for everyone. It's also very private with expansive views.

The dock is in excellent condition and kept our boat safe and easily accessible all week. We had fun jumping off the end of the dock, even at low tide, and snorkeling with stingrays and a wide variety of fish and other sea-life right there! At night the water would light up with thousands of little blue flashes and streaks from some sort of bio-luminescence. I don't know if this is seasonal, or if it's always there, but it was pretty cool.

There are no bicycles - apparently they've been gone for a couple years - but everything else was there and worked perfectly. The ice maker in the garage was a huge bonus for us.

I don't usually return to the same place for vacations, but I might have to make an exception for this beauty!

Spectacular Bayside Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Temara twice. For certain, we will return. Bright, special, cozy. Spectacular views, great dock, perfect location. Wonderful veranda. Gina, the caretaker, is superfriendly and helpful. We love this house, you really feel like you are in a home away from home.
