About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) or BoatHouse on the water (Sleeps 2)

A choice of two lovely and fully-furnished, island cottages awaits you just outside Marsh Harbour at DoneReach in the island chain known as 'the Abacos.' Located 175 miles by air due east of Palm Beach, Florida, the Abacos are the northernmost part of the Bahamas. Average temperatures in the 70's F in the Winter and in the 80's F in the Summer.

DoneReach, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with spectacular views over the Sea of Abaco and the Atlantic Ocean; and, DoneReach BoatHouse, our dockside, one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage provides a true 'on the water' living experience.

Situate on a hill on a peninsula virtually surrounded by the turquoise sea, DoneReach and DoneReach BoatHouse are located on a private, beach road three miles from Marsh Harbour, the third largest settlement in the Bahamas and far from the hustle bustle, the high rises, and the casinos of Nassau and Freeport. Both cottages are private, but not secluded (neither can be seen or heard from the other), and are close to all the amenities, restaurants, ferries, marinas, car, boat, bike and scooter rentals, and a variety of shops.

Two fully-stocked and modern grocery stores are just three miles from DoneReach. DoneReach is 15 minutes by taxi from Marsh Harbour's international airport and is just about 20 minutes by your rental boat or ferry from all of the out islands.

DoneReach is air conditioned and has ceiling paddle fans to supplement the nearly always-present moderating breezes. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds and one bedroom has twin beds. Large decks on both sides of the house provide alternate places to sit, read, and relax, depending upon the movement of the sun and the ever-changing winds. Beach and deck furniture is abundant.

DoneReach BoatHouse is air conditioned and has ceiling paddle fans throughout. BoatHouse is private from DoneReach is is located literally 'on the water' by the dock. A Queen size bed and all the amenities makes BoatHouse perfect for couples, whether on honeymoon or just to fall in love all over again.

Both cottages have a fully-equipped kitchen.

About Rusty and Nancy

We are Rusty and Nancy, expats form the northeastern USA living the dream in our island paradise. Rusty, an attorney and now a fixer of all things and Nancy, a realtor a now a fine artist decided in 2000 to literally 'quit the rat race for a slower pace', spending more time in Abaco than away from it.

Rusty and Nancy purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Rusty and Nancy chose Abaco

DoneReach, an old island term meaning ' having (usually after a long journey) finally arrived at one's intended destination', was the first and only property we looked at to purchase. We fell in love with its charm and location on the Sea at first sight and that was that! After several years of renting a place for our Winter holiday we finally 'done reach home'. Since then it's been a labour of love and we have made the place not only our own but 'home' for our guests, most of whom return every year to recharge, relax and rejuvenate. Our guests are also our friends.

What makes this cottage unique

DoneReach is ideally located at the 'Hub of Abaco'. Private but not secluded, close to all the desired amenities, like restaurants and medical services, comfortable and user friendly. A rental boat is all that's needed to fully enjoy all that Abaco has to offer, from snorkeling and fishing to island hopping adventures.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 fabulous days at Done Reach and couldn't have been more pleased. The property is absolutely beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. It was very accommodating and had everything we needed to be our home away from home. We had the opportunity to spend some time with the owners Rusty and Nancy who were an absolute joy!!! We had never been to the Abaco Islands before so they were most helpful with all of our questions. I emailed them and called with several questions before we even left and they were always glad to give us tips and tricks. Would absolutely stay there again no doubt.
