About the Property
1BR Q- sleeps 2, full bath- large shower area, outside shower, porch all around
Nestled into the island, surrounded by flowering plants and bushes, this charming vacation home has a full screened-in porch just right for reading, lunch or evening cocktails. Hearing the waves on the beach and watching the diminishing evening sunlight, you can fire up the porch grill or bike to one of the restautants... Taste and Sea or Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Some weekends there is a cook-out on the Public Beach to raise money for the school or library. From your comfortable bedroom you view the back garden beyond the deck. The stone walk leads to the sandy beach where the blue-green water beckons. There's a small reef for some snorkeling and a Cassurina tree for shade. For sunbathing or night sky watching, climb the stairs by the outside shower where you get a panoramic island view.
There is plane service from both Ft Lauderdale and Nassau. Staniel Cay lures many vacationers looking for a quiet getaway. Some come in their own plane landing on the 3,000 ft runway that has a large parking ramp. For the adventurous there is a somewhat weekly freight boat out of Nassau. We will be glad to help with recommendations.
Before making a payment, always call the manager at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.
