About the property

2 Bed 2 Bath, Split level apartment, near beach and Padi Dive Center

Welcome to Man - O - War Cay! A 3 by 1/2 mile island in the outislands of Abaco in the Bahamas. A small jewel in the Atlantic.

Our modern split level apartment on the second and third floor. Bottom level is open area with fully equiped kitchen, living and dining area. Also has a bedroom with 2 twin beds and bathroom with tub and shower. Private deck for watching the sunset or just relaxing. Second level has a queen bed and bathroom with tub and shower. It is located on site with another apartment and an efficency.

Dock area available if you decide to rent a boat or have your own runabout.

Man - O - War Cay offers and interesting history of industry with boat building at the forefront. Have a walk around town and see houses built by boatbuilders that have stood for 120 years against storm after storm. Have a walk through the Albury Brothers Boat Building shed as they build fibreglass verisons of their famous hulls designed in 1954. Stop by Joe's Studio and you might find Joe in his workshop building a traditional Man-O-War dingy with hand sawn maderia frames. Walk miles of white sandy beaches in search of seaglass and other interesting baubles.

A safe place for small children, as golfcarts are primary transport the speed limit is 15 mph. Walk from end to end of the island in 35mins, and with the island being so narrow, you just cant get lost.

Nightlife is 20 minutes away by boat in Hopetown, where there are bars and many restaurants.

There is a very well stocked grocery store on Man - O - War, along with gift shops and rentals for boats, carts, bikes, snorkel and scuba gear, tank fills. 2 restaurants serving local cuisine with fresh fish and conch available. There are also 3 churches.

Welcome to Man-O-War, where I can forget to close the door at night, and not have to lock the door at all.

About Andrew Cove

My name is Andrew Cove. Born in the Bahamas. My parents and I fell in love with Man-O-War 21 years ago on a trip to visit family.

Andrew Cove purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Andrew Cove chose Bahamas

The family bought this property and eventually built this building because of the location on the Creek. I was told as a child that if you had a boat, you should be able to see it out of your bedroom window. This eases the mind when you worry if she is ok. The Coves building is located on the Creek overlooking our dock area. It is a single family home with 2 split level apartments tied on. Myself, My wife and 8 yo daughter live here. I will be available to help you with getting settled in and will be starting the generator when required in case of a power outage.

Served our needs very well.

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Andrew's efficiency apartment and it met all our needs and was very clean.. Andrew lives on site and responded quickly to all our questions, sent pictures of the property so we knew what exactly what we were booking, took care of all our requests/ needs - overall a most pleasant experience. Man 'O War is a quiet, beautiful cay and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there - the weather was against us and we were unable to do the sailing with friends as planned but enjoyed our time relaxing around the pool, taking long walks and visiting with friends. We highly recommend Andrew's property. Linda and Ron

Quiet escape!

  • 4 of 5

I wanted a quiet escape from the city, and that's exactly what I got. You are surrounded by beach a very short walk away. The water is perfect! But if you're traveling alone man-o-war cay can feel desolate. It's quite easy though to jump on a ferry and go to a bit more lively of an island, if that's what you want.

Andrew and his family were very welcoming. I stayed in the efficiency and it was perfect for just me. I will definitely be back!

Nice condo on Man-O-War Cay

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice long week-end on Man-O-War Cay at The Coves. Andrew (our host) was very helpful - suggested a taxi service in Marsh Harbour, picked us up at the ferry on Man-O-War, helped us with the golf cart rental and more.

The island is beautiful, quiet and small, and only reachable by boat or ferry.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cove on Man O Way Key. The accommodations were spotless with all essentials provided. Two bedrooms and two baths allowed for comfortable quarters. We brought most of our supplies with us such as meats, pastas, etc. and a grill was provided for us to cook out. We were picked up at the ferry by golf cart and brought to our condo. A must place to shop is Joe's a Studio and Albury Sail Shop. Residents on the island are all friendly. Golf carts only, no cars!

A great Man-O-War Cay condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Cove Apartments. It was awesome to have the property managers so close by; they were great hosts! The pool was a big hit with the kids! The apartment was well-furnished and offered everything we were looking for.
