About the Property

2 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, Great View, Very Private

This is a great 2 bedroom home on one of the most beautiful and secluded islands in the Bahamas. The native population of Rum Cay is about 75 with a dozen or so vacations houses so if you're looking for casinos and night clubs you may want to look for something in Nassau. If you're looking for a peaceful secluded place to really get away from it all this is the place for you.

For a long time Rum Cay was off the beaten path and only visited by the lucky few (mostly brush pilots and sailors). Today thanks to a new airport that can accommodate large aircraft and access to reasonably priced charter flights, this unspoiled jewel of the Bahamas is accessible to all.

Thanks to GPS navigation and the new large paved runway Rum Cay is the perfect getaway for private pilots (even new pilots flying the Bahamas is easy these days). Ask about AOPA discount.

This 2 bedroom homes has 2 twin beds in each bedroom that can be pushed together to make double beds when needed. This home is perfect for 2 couples, or a family.
