Bonefish Bay

Live the dream now!!!

Experience how it feels to live in a sustainable energy home.

Live completely off the grid, with 100% Solar and Wind Power. Our home has water on three sides with panoramic views all the way around.

Surround yourself by nature, with more than three miles from your nearest neighbor.

Wade out onto the expansive peaceful tidal flats to your hearts content.

Explore in your kayak or canoe. Curly Creek on the other side of the Bay winds through the Sugar Plum Cays where you will surprise bone fish, barracuda, snapper and more, as you glide over the calm waters of the flats.

Go bone fishing just outside your own front door! Truly, some of the best flats for bone fishing on Andros, in the Bahamas, and for that matter anywhere in the world.

Go shelling! Walk for miles and miles when the tide is low looking for shells in less than ankle deep water. There are some special spots where you are sure to find beautiful sunrise talons and sand dollars.

Enjoy unforgettable sunsets that unfold all around you.

Experience the magic of walking on the sand flats in the moon light.

Set your own pace and wander where your curiosity leads you. At the house you have 4 kayaks, 1 canoe, 2 windsurfers with different size sails, and 1 small sailboat, plus life jackets. Snorkeling gear for 4, sand castle building stuff, croquet, Petanque (bocce). Also two bicycles.

Set up guided fishing trips, either bone fishing, reef fishing or deep sea fishing with excellent local guides.

Snorkel or SCUBA in The Tongue of the Ocean, on the World’s third largest barrier reef, with a 6000 foot Wall just a mile offshore. One of the foremost fully equipped dive resorts, Small Hope Bay Lodge is just a few miles away.

Explore the inland fresh water Blue Holes. Andros has the largest concentration of Blue Holes in the World. They are natural swimming pools, perfectly round holes filled with cool fresh water surrounded by pine forest or hard wood forest.

Go Bird Watching! A constant delight with many different species. Some of the birds are considered protected and migrate from afar to nest here in peace and tranquility. Others can only be found here.

Star gaze! A paradise, far from any light pollution, the sky is open from horizon to horizon.

Visit the home of the hand dyed fabric "Androsia". You can visit the factory and see them wax print and hand dye the beautiful cottons and even try one yourself. The factory outlet store is another of the treasures of Andros.

About Scot Kurth

Built by owner Scot Kurth for my family. We enjoyed the privacy, seclusion and tranquility for 15 years. The only reason that we have moved is for school for our two boys. It is, and will always be Home.

Scot Kurth purchased this house in 1999

Why Scot Kurth chose Bahamas

We choose to build here because I grew up on Andros since 1965 and wanted to share it's Natural Environment and beauty with my family. It is a wonderful place to grow up or visit, surrounded by nature and the ocean. With the renewable energy system, I wanted to show what sustainability looks like and how well it works.

What makes this house unique

The tranquility is unsurpassed. You wake in the morning to the sound of the Ocean lapping at the shore and to the birds chirping. You can enjoy knowing that the house operates on a zero carbon footprint.

"PPP" Private Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Owners have built a beautiful retreat in a secluded paradise. If you are looking for Casinos and nightlife this is not your place. If you are looking for a private piece of paradise with miles of beach and beautiful flats to explore with a small group of friends or family then this is your place. Scott was extremely helpful and a great resource for anything and everything Andros.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian, Thanks for the review. You guys were the perfect guests, when there was no wind, you fished for bonefish, and when the wind finally picked up, you guys went kite boarding. You were able to take advantage of whatever the weather threw at you. We would love to have you back again. Please share us with all of your kite boarding friends. Remember that the winter months are the best for the wind and kite boarding. Thanks, Scot

Beautiful home right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

Six adults consisting of two couples and two singles. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen very well appointed (I especially appreciated the reverse osmosis filtered water, delicious.).

Three of us are avid fly fisherman and there is a great bonefish flat just out the door.

An amazing house in an incredible setting.

  • 5 of 5

We're on our last day here in paradise, packing up for the voyage home. Our stay at Bonefish Bay was wonderful. We've rented many houses at numerous islands throughout the Bahamas and, without doubt, this house was the nicest that we've stayed in. It's not luxurious or fancy but it is very spacious, impeccably clean, and extremely well equipped. We really appreciated the beauty and peacefulness of the private setting.

The house easily accommodated seven of us and could probably have slept an additional four people if we wanted to.

The owner's customer service was simply outstanding (both leading up to and during our stay). It really made everything easy and enhanced the quality of our stay. We would love to visit Bonefish Bay again in the not too distant future.

PERFECT GET-A-WAY

  • 5 of 5

Bonefish Bay was the perfect prescription for this busy family of 6! We have children ages 6, 8, 14, and 16...all at different schools and in multiple extracurricular activities. This beach house provided us the perfect place to relax and re-connect. The property was exactly as it was portrayed online. Scot, the owner, was so gracious and he was available for us to call with any concerns or questions throughout our entire stay. The house is located directly on the beach of bonefish bay, and there are NO neighbors. We saw an occasional fisherman or local collecting conchs from the bay. Otherwise, total seclusion. WE LOVED IT! The house offered all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay, and it was well supplied with all the extras like detergent, dish soap, and paper products. Scot prepared us prior to our arrival with helpful information about what needed to bring, and fun activities to incorporate into our vacation while we were visiting. All of the kids found fun activities to entertain themselves. It was nice to see them enjoy the outdoors and play until they were exhausted! There were four kayaks, a canoe, and wind boards/paddle boards for us to use and enjoy. The locals on the island were all very friendly and helpful when we had questions. It was a wonderful week at Bonefish Bay. We will definitely consider re-visiting!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Bonefish Bay and had an amazing time. We had 5 adults and 2 small children (ages 2 and 4). The house sits far off the main road on a beautiful private bay/flat. At low tide the water is incredibly calm, some of the flat dries out and other areas are only knee deep more than 100 yards offshore allowing our children (even our 2 year old) to safely walk and explore-fish, crabs, conch, starfish. At high tide much of the area is still only knee to waist deep and we canoed and kayaked (all available with plenty of life jackets on the property). We fished the flats a few days and saw smalls schools of bones, sometimes tailing within site and easy wading distance of the house-for more serious fishing we went out with guides.

The house itself was very comfortable and functions very well as a beach house for a group or family-4 big bedrooms, 3 large baths, fully stocked kitchen, grill, screen porch with a hammock (we went in February and there were very few insects), working wifi, plenty of hot water etc. The closest town-Fresh Creek is pretty quiet ( a few restaurants and a few markets for essentials) so the full kitchen allowed us to cook most of our meals in-which made for a completely relaxing time.

Perhaps most of all the owner Scot was incredibly helpful and available (he seems to know everyone in Fresh Creek and on Andros-at customs they said-"Oh you're staying at Scotty's house") in putting us in touch with great fishing guides, dive operators, tips on who to call for fresh seafood, what days the boats bring in groceries, and having great local people to meet us at the airport and answer any questions about the property.

Overall we had an amazing time and are hoping to make this a frequent trip for our family.
