Overview

About the property

House, 3Bedrooms + Bonus Room + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This luxury beach front home is located on Great Harbour Cay's famous 7 mile beach. House features 3+1/2+1/2 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, an open kitchen, dining and living area (perfect for entertaining) and large patios and verandas overlooking the turquoise seas and nearby islands.

The main house has three bedrooms on the second floor. One bedroom features two queen sized beds and the other bedroom has a queen sized bed, plus a loft with three twin beds. There is a den area offering extra sleeping on two twin beds (this sleeping area has its own access to a bathroom).

A palm thatched gazebo is perched high over the powdery white sandy beach- a perfect spot to chill out and catch the refreshing sea breezes. Outside shower.

Great Harbour Cay is surprisingly tranquil and non-touristy considering it's close proximity to South Florida. Only 120 miles east of Miami. There are direct flights from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. There are also 2 flights daily to/from nearby Nassau (only 20 minutes!) Many guests will begin or end their Bahamas vacation in Nassau, checking out the Atlantis or the Dolphin Experience.

Great Harbour Cay also boasts many activities, unparalleled in the Bahamas: fabulous fishing- both deep water and bonefishing, shell collecting, snorkeling, diving, golf, tennis, island hopping, and island exploring, just to name a few.

There are several restaurants with native cuisine and international fare, small shops, grocery stores, and even a medical clinic on the island. Car, golf cart and jeep and boat rentals are available.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home exceeded all expectations. With a warmth that's hard to find, stunning decor and pristine beach (where you'll rarely see another person) we couldn't have been happier! Will absolutely stay here again! Thank you for your hospitality!

One of the very best vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Great Harbour Cay is an absolute jewel. My husband and I brought our 4 year old son to visit for 4 weeks in February and we can't wait to return. Michelle and Farrell are the most gracious, welcoming people and we are so grateful to have had the chance to get to know them. First, the house is absolutely beautiful. Michelle is a designer and she touched on every detail of this home. The photos simply don't do it justice.

Michelle and Farrell picked us up at the airport and showed us around the house. Thank goodness they helped us to get a few groceries as we arrived late on a Tuesday and couldn't get transportation until morning. Take note: the island is small and there are not any large markets... if you charter a plane fill it with your favorite things. If you fly into Florida make time to stop off at a market. We ate out for just about every meal which we thoroughly enjoyed. Nothing fancy... this is island life at its best. It gave us the opportunity to meet lots of people and really feel like a part of the community. Also be sure to rent a golf cart or jeep. We had a golf cart and loved puttering around the island at a slower pace.

If you are looking for shopping, fancy restaurants, cabana boys with Pina Coladas this is not the island for you. If you are looking for the most gorgeous beaches, beautiful sunsets, friendly people... Great Harbour Cay can't be beat. The community is incredible. Everyone is there to help each other. If you need a lift just start walking and someone will offer you a ride... need some milk for your morning coffee, your neighbor is more than willing to provide.

This house is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. We were there for 4 weeks and were sad to leave...

Thank you again to Michelle and Farrell and Cotton of course... We can't wait to return!

Comfortable. Pretty and right on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Great Harbour Cay is a small unspoiled island, with wonderful beaches .

It would help to have a detailed map for guests to help them find these beaches, as there are very few road signs.

The residents are all very friendly and helpful.

Perfect beach holiday for young children.

We all had a lovely time.

"Tranquility Extraordinare"

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Michelle and Farrell's amazing home provided a great escape from the craziness of our busy world. Tastefully appointed, by obviously loving hands, their home was casual, easy and convenient to the solitude of the beautiful beach. Michelle and Farrell were very helpful in pointing out restaurants, activities and points of interest. GHC is a place with great people, great food (try the homemade breads at Mama Poppel's!) and a wonderful Pina colada! Try the Rocky Hill Pool Bar for a great meal, and the Beach Club for a great breakfast or libation. Charter a boat with Alvin at the marina and explore other islands and enjoy a great lunch at Flo's Conch Shack on Little Harbor Cay. Amazing fishing, dolphins escorting our boat and see the mysteries of Cistern Cay and its shady past!

Great place and great people! We look forward to returning soon!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend spent at this beautiful home on this paradise island. The view is amazing, the beach private, the aqua water unbelievably crystal clear and just perfect! I love the home, the décor was gorgeous, floor plan well laid out, beds so comfortable and so many adorable little spots to sit and relax or enjoy a little quiet time listening to the gentle lapping of the waves while enjoying the ocean breeze. I don't know how the owner ever leaves, I know I didn't want to! I hope to return and bring my adult children next time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
