Property description

The Whitehouse is a typical one-floor Bahamian bungalow that sleeps 5. Built on land that over-looks the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Sea of Abaco on the other, the Whitehouse allows unsurpassed sunset views. A 2 minute walk through the property to the Atlantic Ocean affords sunrise views. This land has been described by a local as 'one of the prettiest spots on the island'.

The bungalow was recently refurbished with new stone floors and fresh paint. Air conditioning was added in 2014. It is simple but comfortable. Enjoy coffee, lunch, dinner or cocktails from your private patio with table and chairs overlooking the Sea of Abaco with its amazing sunsets.

If you need add'l beds, please visit property #556603, our sister cottage 'Sandcastle' which is located on this same property and sleeps 4-6.

A vacation in Man 'O War Cay is easily attained: an hour's flight from West Palm Beach/Miami/Fort Lauderdale to the airport in Marsh Harbour, then a 15 minute taxi ride (taxis are abundant at the airport) through town to the Albury Ferry Dock. 20 minutes on the ferry delivers you to the island of Man 'O War, where our caretakers will greet you and deliver you to your own Bahamiam seaside cottage.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Enjoy the simple & calm Bahamian life from your private seaside bungalow in the boat building capital of the Bahamas. This island is small and is comprised of a colorful community of 350 friendly & polite year round residents as well as a small number of foreign resident holiday homes. Only 2.5 miles long & narrow (often less than 100 metros between harbor & beach) this is the perfect place to relax in a very safe, clean & well kept paradise.

Man 'O War Cay is a simple island where the local's life is enviable. There are no cars or bars on the island, but there are two lovely restaurants (one overlooking the harbor) where you are permitted to bring your own alcohol to enjoy. Be sure to visit the small museum, as well as the local marina, boat yard, and Albury's Sail Shop, where seamstresses create everything canvas directly in front of you. Along the waterfront fishermen sell conch shells and freshly caught fish. Rent a boat, a kayak, paddle board - enjoy the truly exceptional diving, snorkeling, and water sports the island's waters have to offer!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: David grew up vacationing on Scotland Cay. It was his love of the Bahamas that brought us to Man 'O War during the spring of 2013.

Why Moore's Island, The Bahamas:
Sandcastle (our residence) and the Whitehouse, sit on a 'sea to sea' property, offering exceptional views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea of Abaco.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Close enough to the settlement to take part in the local flavor, yet far enough away to allow privacy and solitude. Enjoy the sound of crashing waves, walk the miles of beaches, collect shells in the peaceful low tides of the Sea of Abaco, or walk the 'Queen's Highway' to the 'low place' where the waves crash over the road.
