About the Property
Villa, 1 Bedroom + 2 sleeping lofts (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
We purchased and renovated this villa in 2004 with updates periodically. It's the perfect retreat for a small family who loves turquoise water (there's lots of shallow water for children to play in), and totally laid-back vacationing.
Some of the best bonefishing in the world! Percy can take you, just ask for him when yhou get there.The berry islands are considered a sport fishing mecca. Whether your particular style is reef fishing, deep-sea fishing, bone fishing, or bottom fishing the waters off Great Harbor are teeming with enough fish to satisfy any appetite. In May the islands come alive with competitors vying for trophies during the fishing tournament held in Great Harbor Marina.
If you need a car, Happy People, Elorn Rolle, or Carrie my housekeeper will rent one or a golf cart, your choice. Boats are also available.
Eat at the Pool Bar everything is great!; my favorite is the cracked conch! The Bahamians upon request will make you key lime pie, peas and rice or other local dishes for a small fee.
The villa's interior is furnished in the Bahamian tradition. There is one master bedroom with a queen size bed; and two lofts --one with twin beds and the other with a queen size bed.
The living room and bedroom have cathedral ceilings. The full kitchen has a breakfast bar; and there is also a small dining table. The living room and bedroom open up onto a wrap-around deck with fabulous views of the ocean and golf course.
At night you can see the light of the cruise ships as they get ready to dock at their privately-owned islands. (With permission you may visit these islands and take part in the fun and food). In the morning you'll get an orange sunrise view from the master suite.
The kitchen is equiped with stove, oven, refrigerator, dishes,, and all cooking utensils. A washer and dryer is included.
The master bedroom has a TV and VCR/CD player so bring your favorite movies. There is presently no cable or satellite, however, it is being shipped as I write this.. The villa is equipped with a phone for local calls and there is Wi-Fi.
Walkways lead from the villa to the sea; and thatched umbrellas adorn the beach. Everything is within walking distance; but cars, golf carts aand boats are available upon request. Don't miss out on visitng this island
.Great Harbor is known for its spectacular diving and champion sportfishing, second only to the Biminis. The lobstering is unbelieveable. Lying in a long lacy line this group of 30 cays cover an area of 12 sq. miles.
We would love to reserve this home for you. Come and enjoy our home.If total seclusion and a restful breeze are your idea of a vacation, then the Berry Islands are for you. Great Harbor is for those who wish to escape the maddening crowds, and let their troubles drift out to sea with the afternoon tide.
The airport does accomodate small jet planes.
Six person maximum. Must be over 21 years old to rent

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I are/were real estate agents and developers. I am retired and my husband continues to work. We live and have raised our four children in Mobile, Alabama.on the water. We love the water and seem to always vacation around it. We found Great Harbor when we were invited by friends to their home there. We fell in love and continue to enjoy Great Harbor and the berry islands. My husband loves to fish and lobster, and I love to shell and go boating, so we both get to enjoy our passions.
Why the Owner Chose Berry Islands, Bahamas:
My husband and I chose Great Harbor because of the 6 miles of pristine beach, unbelieveable lobstering, bone fishing and great food! We have made many friennds with travelers and the local bahamians. My family has been vacationing here since 2004 . Quite a few of my renters have built or are now building on Great Harbor becaue they enjoy it as much as we do. It is easy to get to and from an airport from the states through Nassau and easily accessable from Florida by chartering a plane or just buying a seat on a charter, yet it is remote, which keeps it from getting crowded with tourists. It is the perfect place to go if you want a little bit of everything, and seclusion at the same time.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It is a a five minute walk down to the "Beach Club" which serves breakfast and lunch. Ask for an "Angie Special" for lunch and enjoy "yellow grits" with your choice of breakfast. My favorite ritual is to have breakfast at the Beach Club, walk on to Shrark Creek, further down the beach, shell for hours, walk back to the Beach Club have a Coke and walk home arms full of shell. Be sure only to pick up shells with no living creatures inside and "white" sand dollars. We all need to do what we can to preserve nature. In the evening my favorite food is at the "Pool Bar" located next to the Marina. Order a take out, or enjoy the vacationers you'll meet there while you eat. I love to eat at the bar. That's where you will meet most vacationers and locals.
