Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Martha & I grew up in Virginia. We moved near the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay which is where we fell in love with boating and fishing. Later, we lived in Ft. Pierce FL, just off the Indian River. Now we are back in VA, near Colonial Beach. We enjoy this area, but the water can't compare to the Beautiful waters of Cherokee Sound.

Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Sound, Bahamas:
Martha and I visited Abaco the first time 20 years ago. Since then we have visited many times, renting vacation homes and traveling by boat. We rented houses in Marsh Harbor, Man O War Cay and Cherokee. Our boat travels took us to The Exuma Islands and around the Abacos. A friend showed us around Cherokee Sound and we were hooked. After meeting some of the friendly folks in Cherokee we decided to build, starting our house in 2006. The builders were Roger Pender, Hartie Albury and Andrew Roberts, craftsmen all and you can see the results. They all live in Cherokee.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Some of what you get in Cherokee Sound; Beautiful waters for swimming, snorkeling, diving and exploring. Great fishing, both in the sound for bonefish and in the ocean for Dolphin, Marlin, Wahoo and Tuna, fishing guides available. Beautiful secluded beaches abound, often you find only your footprints there. Go shelling or just relax and enjoy peace and quiet. Some of what you won't get in Cherokee; Crowds, waiting in line, traffic, rude people, the tourist hustle. The people are friendly, stop in at the market for groceries or just to find out what is happening in the village. Pete's Pub is a short drive away and a great place for fun and food. If you want shopping, bars, night life and more Marsh Harbor has all that and more.
