Abaco at its Best! Penninsula--- Water on Both Sides, 80' Dock

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located on desirable Eastern Shore Penninsula, Water on both sides of the house, 80 foot dock on one side, tie up buoys on the other. Two houses in one: upstairs (separate entrance) has one bedroom, one bath, large kitchen, bar, living room, dining room and deck.

Downstairs(separate entrance) has two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen with bar and deck. Both have flat screen tvs and cable with internet. Rent up or down or both. For your comfort and privacy I only rent to one group at a time.

The water is generally smooth on at least one side of the house for swimming, floating on rafts, etc. There are reefs within snorkeling distance off the front, with lobster, grouper, and other marine life. Fish from the new dock, or just sit and enjoy a drink and the beautiful view!

The house has airconditioning in every room, or open up the windows and doors and enjoy the ocean breeze. And there is plenty of reading, resting and snorkeling, It is an easy walk to the ferry dock if you want to explore Hopetown. It is just a short walk to Boat harbour Marina where you can enjoy poolside dining or relax inside with air conditioning.

The Jib Room, Snappas, Curly tails and other restaurants are just a short drive- maybe two miles. You can walk it and burn off the calories!

If you want to explore, its is walking distance to rent bicycles or an auto or to one of the dive shops for a truly unigue diving experience.

Why Donald Whitman chose Marsh Harbour

We visited Abaco for almost twenty years and were finaly able to purchase a home. The beautiful water, friendly people and laid back enviroment sold us, and it will capture you too.

What makes this house unique

Be at the any number of great restaurants and shops in just minutes. Extremely convenient! We have a boat (you can rent one from several places) and we enjoy fishing, diving, snorkeling and exploring outer cays like Hopetown, Guana, Turtle Cay and Treasure Cay and to visit Pete's Pub in Little Harbour.

Second year renting the Wheelhouse and even more fun second go round. House has everything you need for a stress free vacation. Four women on chic trip, it is perfect. Second kitchen accommodates early coffee drinkers and late sleepers. Deck on top floor is the best, always some activity to catch the eye and enjoy a gentle breeze. Dock is great for swimming and beach on other side perfect for wading on low water. Would not consider staying any other place. SDF

Great family House!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at Wheelhouse for a week during Spring Break. It was a great house for the value! It is convenient to everything and the kids were able to snorkel right at the boat dock and ramp. We saw a spotted eagle ray, a caribbean squid, star fish, and numerous other sea creatures without having to leave the house. Unfortunately, the water was quite rough and we were not able to venture out far, but we thoroughly enjoyed our trip!!!
