About the property

Great Guana Cay is a small Island in the Bahamas. Enjoy the beauty of this charming, off the grid vacation spot. The Nut House on Great Guana Cay was renovated in 2016. The floors were refinished and new furniture was purchased. The waterfront view is fantastic. Because it’s in the settlement, you can walk to the ferry, grocery store, liquor store, restaurants and bars. The ocean side of the island is a five-minute walk. The house has a spacious kitchen, tall ceilings, 2 comfortable bedrooms, master bedroom has a king medium density memory foam bed, second bedroom has a "full" bed, beautiful antiques and art, a large screened in porch, laundry, two bicycles, air conditioning, satellite TV, Apple TV, awesome Bose sound system, and internet. There is also a Queen sleeper sofa in the living room. I have been enjoying my house for 18 years since it was built. I decided to start renting in 2016. This house is new to VRBO. I am a general contractor and maintain the house very well. The island offers the following activities: snorkeling, scuba, shelling, bicycling, surfing, kite surfing, fly fishing, boating, island hopping and beach fun. PLEASE UNDERSTAND!! Great Guana Cay is a remote location. Internet outages are common. Occasional power outages are rare but happen. There is no concierge service. Traveling to an off the grid location can be wonderful but carries potential risk for lack of conveniences that we sometimes take for granted.

Excellent place and location!!

  • 5 of 5

You could not find a better 2 bedroom house in a better location. Everything you need is furnished in the house. A/C works great and the king bed is so comfy!! Chip the owner was great, we were stuck for 5 extra nights because of Irma and he put us up for the extra nights!! Jackie the caretaker was a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgeable. Would most certainly stay here again!!

Heart of town with awesome space.

  • 5 of 5

This place is in the center of town just steps away from Kidd's Cove, Grabbers and Nippers. We just had the most amazing time being able to walk to each of these places every day, wake up to a fabulous view every morning from the master bedroom, and enjoy large family meals with our extended family every night in the ample space the floor plan allows. The king size bed is super comfortable, the A/C is extra cold and Chip has the most awesome sound system for your tunes. No need to rent a cart, as the two bikes were perfect for getting around. Thanks Chip for a most memorable time!

Great property and fantastic caretakers

  • 5 of 5

Chip and Jackie looked great after us. The property is in a fantastic location in a great surrounding. The house is very specious with an open concept kitchen/living and the screened in porch is where we spent our time at home. It is well air conditioned to any comfort level. The islands character is well reflected in this house and it won't be our last time visiting here. We went snorkeling every day on the Caribbean and Atlantic side. Everything is very close and there are two great bikes to use for shopping or just getting around. No need to rent a cart! There is a great new restaurant next door, Dive Guana is right close as well as the grocery and liquor store. Nippers is just around the corner as well. This was our fourth visit to the island and this is the best property we have been so far. Thank you Chip for having us, we'll be back!!

Great location, wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

The Nut house sits right on front street, a minute from Nippers. High ceilings, log cabin feel, it's really cool. We had such an awesome time in Guana Cay, everyone knows the Nut house and helped us out, so we didn't spend a huge amount of time in the house anyway - too busy out on the boat (Troy) and snorkeling with Forrest, that sort of thing... Fantastic! There are some rough edges to be ironed out (beds bit small, not a ton of tv channels) but the AC is excellent, there's wifi, it has great character - and Chip is easily reached, as is Jackie his caretaker - not to mention it is still new to Vrbo so there are bound to be a few updates along the way which Chip will no doubt provide. It's a great property at a reasonable price and we'll definitely be back!
