About the property

2 Bedroom Beach Front Vacation Home With Stunning Views And Large Deck Areas

"Love Beach" is a new 2 bedroom 2,5 bathroom luxury home with a full gourmet kitchen, fitness room, furnishings imported from Bali, and large decks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Private beach stairs takes you down to the beach, where you can lounge in the breeze, sun tan, swim, snorkel or just go for a stroll in the white, soft beach. You can even walk to Nipper's if you feel like it. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available. There are three separate buildings with easy access between them. In the main cottage you will find the spacious living area, the very well equipped gourmet kitchen and the large dining area where you can entertain 8 people comfortably. There is a powder room in the main cottage as well. On each side of the main cottage you'll find a smaller cottage with a bedroom and a bathroom. Each of these cottages has a desk, TV, lots of closet space with a safe, and a private porch. Wake up in the mornings and feel the breeze from the ocean through the open doors. Have a coffee on the private porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while you go online and check the latest news and emails. The large deck on the Ocean side of the house comes with 4 lounge chairs, a bar area, a first class propane barbecue, and an outdoor dining table. The living room opens up with sliding doors all around, with 3 doors facing the ocean and the large deck area. You'll probably be living as much outside as inside. Air conditioning units keeps the house nice and cool while you are basking on the beach and in the sun. Large outdoor fans will cool you off while you are outside on the porch, when there is no wind. "Love Beach" is truly an exquisite rental home, located only a 7 minute golf cart ride from the ferry dock and the Settlement, where you will find 5 restaurants/bars, a grocery store, a liquor store, souvenir/gift stores (with cigars) at Nipper's and Grabbers. "Gone Conchin" by the ferry dock, and "Gotta Love Guana" are beach clothing stores for him and her. Staying in "Love Beach" will ensure you a fabulous vacation experience you will remember for years to come. For more info, visit our website: http://lovebeachabaco.com.

About Simon Lazarus

Jenn and Simon met in Nassau 16 years ago, and our first dates used to be on "Love Beach" near compass point (hence the name of our home). We have lived in several countries and now both live and work in Dubai. While we are not traveling frequently for work or pleasure, we enjoy our piece of paradise on Great Guana Cay.

Simon was born in Montreal, and grew up in Jamaica; he is a former professional Executive Chef, and is currently a corporate vice president for a global hotel chain. Jenn is born in Ontario Canada, and is a sales and marketing director for a global asset management firm. Jenn is a dual Dutch/Canadian national.

Simon Lazarus purchased this house in 2015

Why Simon Lazarus chose Great Guana Cay

We always vowed to return to the Bahamas to live, and when we came upon Great Guana Cay, we knew we found our place in paradise. The people of Guana are warm, caring and friendly, and always there to share a story or drink (or 5)!

Having traveled the world, when we first arrived on Guana, we found our beachfront to be second to none. We relax, snorkel, go boating, connect to the office, go for a bike ride, lounge, mix a Mojito, cook exquisite meals and enjoy a beautiful stress free life with friends at Love Beach!

What makes this house unique

We built Love Beach based on our own custom design. Being a Hotelier and frequent travelers, we took into account the needs of the modern traveler and family. Everything that you could need is provided for in Love Beach. Large wrap around decks capture the tropical tradewinds and spectacular beach views while you cool off on sunny afternoons. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen and bar is unlike any rental cottage you will find. We hand selected all furniture in Bali, and the beds, linens and towels from the Waldorf Astoria. Bathrooms are spacious and built for comfort. We are the only property on Guana Cay with a fitness room, complete with basic equipment, fitness videos and yoga mats. Enjoy ultimate connectivity with high speed internet and WIFI in all rooms. Stay on top of your favorite TV shows with direct satellite TV in all rooms. Love beach comes with a DVD, Bose stereo and DVD library, several boardgames, a 3 burner Weber grill and outdoor games for your enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Guana Cay is a 25 minute ferry ride from Marsh Harbour (Airport code MHH). Marsh Harbour international is a very short direct flight from Nassau, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Atlanta, and is serviced many times per day by several airlines.

In Guana Cay there are 5 bars and restaurants at present, and more are coming. You can rent a golf cart, a boat, bicycles, snorkeling gear and you can sign up for snorkeling and scuba diving tours. You can rent a boat and do your own island hopping, or you can join a guided tour with a captain and other tourists. On the way you'll stop and snorkel and swim. Maybe you can catch your own lobster dinner, or conch. There is great fishing on the ocean outside the cay, and local fishing guides with boats and equipment would love to take you for half a day, or a full day charter. House comes equipped with several games including paddle board and bocciaball. There is also a tennis court available on Dolphin Beach Estates.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful private home on a remote island with breathtaking views. Wake up each morning to the most amazing sunrises, lay out on a chase lounge while listening to the waves crash, take long walks on the quiet beach, take a ride into town and and interact with friendly and very welcoming locals, go snorkeling or scuba diving to see some of the most beautiful fish and sea creatures, and end the day with a delicious meal at one of the islands fabulous restaurants overlooking the ocean while watching the sunset. Love Beach is the perfect island getaway with everything you could possibly need. You won't want to leave!

Beautiful- even in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon at the end of November. The weather was still great mid to high 70s most days, but with that being said- it did get a little chilly at times. I’d recommend bringing a sweatshirt! The place was extremely clean and had all the essential kitchen cooking tools. There were some spices (salt/pepper/random other spices) but if there’s something you’ll definitely need to cook a meal- bring it! We grocery shopped in Marsh Harbour and that was definitely the way to go- larger selection & better prices. Darvin, the house manager, was always available to help or answer any questions. We had some issues with our internet/tv and no hot water the first day- though he was out of town, he had someone there to fix it quickly. Part of the issue couldn’t be resolved by the time we left, but he brought us paddle boards for us to use to make up for it. Very sweet. I loved that we could walk out of the house, down some stairs and have an entire beach to ourselves. We rarely ever saw anyone out there. When the sun wasn’t shining on the beautiful deck, we could easily go to the front of the house and catch some rays there with a different but still amazing view. One thing I really liked was I didn’t see any creepy crawlers the entire stay. We did have to use bug spray a couple times though. Overall, would highly recommend Love Beach And hope to come back soon!!!

Stunning perch above the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Love Beach. Incredibly well designed property, great private bedrooms and common space. We spent the week relaxing on the deck and swimming in the ocean. Well stocked with high end linens, plenty of towels and basics like spices and cleaning supplies. Would love to come back. Owners were very responsive and answered all our questions.

Don't look any further! Do yourself a favor and stay at Love Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Simon and Jenn have been so wonderful from the very beginning of booking their home. We requested to have our reception dinner at their home on their beautiful back deck. They were both so accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed prior to arriving. Upon our arrival to Guana, Darvin who manages the property, immediately met us with our cart and showed us around the home. He was so helpful during our stay at Love Beach! We also received a call the day after we arrived from Simon and Jenn just making sure we were all settled in and that everything was great. Love Beach has everything you will need during your stay on the island. We highly recommend staying at Love Beach, and will definitely be coming back! Thank you so much Simon, Jenn, and Darvin. You made our stay at Love Beach so wonderful!
