Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Central Abaco, The 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.
