The Captain's Cabin is Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I decided to go to Abaco at the last minute on a fishing mission. He, who is not normally good at planning vacations, shocked me by explaining that he already had a house picked out and a boat reserved. When he told me the cabin was in Man O War I was excited but then I saw pictures of the Captain's cabin and I was thrilled. It was perfect, a typical out island house, and just as pictured.

The owners of the cabin were very accommodating and set us up with plans to meet the care taker upon our arrival. Since both of us are familiar with the area we almost went straight to the cabin. Boy am I glad we didn't.

We met the caretaker down town at the boat yard in our rental boat. He jumped aboard and after 5 minutes of idling through the harbour we arrived at the cabin. The dock was huge and in good condition. We tied up our rental boat and walked in the front door. The cabin was freshly painted, clean, neat, and cozy. It had two huge fans and tons of opening windows. Everything was as described. You literally walk out the front door of the cabin onto a small deck and seating area, then onto the dock.

The accommodations were great but what really made the trip for us was the caretaker and his family. He introduced us to his adult son who we immediately hit it off with. They helped us network in the community, had all kinds of great suggestions, and seemed to be ready to help us with anything we needed. We have both traveled all over the Bahamas, extensively in the Abacos, and agreed this was our best trip. We are already planning our return! I have rented several other houses in Abaco but if this cabin is available again I will book it. If you're interested in an authentic Family Island experience, and want to have some of the nicest locals I have ever met for your hosts, then this is the place. The fishing was fantastic, the sunsets were amazing, and I hope we stay in touch with our new friends on Man O War and get to visit again soon.
