Little Harbour is located 25 miles south of Marsh Harbor, where car and boat rentals are available. Forty-minute flights to and from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and West Palm Beach with American, Continental, and US Airways.

Along the way there is the Pelican Keys underwater nature reserve where you can tie up to a mooring ball and snorkle. Schools of huge, harmless leopard rays are plentiful in the reserve.
There are also various barrier islands that can easily be reached by taking the kayaks from the dock at the house. There are miles of secluded, pristine beaches on those barrier islands.

The Bahama Backroads is located in the seaside village of Little Harbour, which includes a pub-restaurant, gallery and foundry where marine sculptures and jewelry is made. There are various beaches and uninhabited islands to explore.
There is also a championship, oceanfront golf course nearby as well as superb fly and deep sea fishing.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I am a freelance writer who first visited the Bahamas on a sailboat more than 20 years ago and have been coming back ever since. My appreciation of the unspoiled tropical environment that the Bahama Backroads Villa featurs stems from a career writing about environmental and sustainable living issues. Previously I worked for Time Magazine and the United Nations Environment Program and was based in Nairobi, Kenya, where I served as the editor of UNEP's Our Planet magazine.
Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Sound, Bahamas:
Little Harbour is unique village in an unspoiled tropical environment. Having seen the haphazard, reckless development of so many beautiful seaside resorts over the years it is nice to be able to go to one that is still an oasis from crowds and crass overdevelopment.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
A typical day starts with a swim and then breakfast on the porch. Later in the morning I try to get in a game of tennis. After doing chores around the house I usually do some reading and otherwise just take it easy. After some late afternoon fly-fishing in the flats in Robinson's Bight, the highlight of the evening is a cocktail on the screened porch that offers a stupendous sunset panorama.
