It has a large open 'great room' feeling to the living, entertainment area. Three bedrooms each with their own full bath provide privacy and spectacular views of the Atlantic from the beds. Each room leads out to a deck that overlooks the sand and water in front of the house. Watch Hill has a full generator that runs the entire house if the electricity should go off.

Steps lead down to the beach which is a 5-mile stretch of white powder. Reefs in front of the house and elsewhere on the island provide excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities. With its own dive shop on the island and deep sea fishing rentals, you will be able to do a variety of activities. Large deck chairs sit on the deck and beach chairs and umbrellas are provided for beach sitting.

Watch Hill is decorated in a clean, well-designed 'cottage style'. The home is a ten-minute walk from the charming settlement with its grocery store, ice-cream-souvenir shop, bakery,liquor store, dive shop, and restaurants.

GREAT Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

GREAT Christmas Vacation in Great Guana Cay!!! Our family of five (mom, dad, boy 6, and two girls 15 and 17 yrs.) had a great time at Watch Hill – December 22 – 28. Gina (owner) was easy to deal with and gave us all the information we needed for an easy arrival and stay. The well-maintained and furnished house is on the Atlantic side with beautiful views and a great beach, 5 min golf cart drive to ‘town’ and 10 min beach walk to Nippers. Watch Hill has a well equipped kitchen (dish washer, oven/stove, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, all pots/pans, ect.. also a grill), tons of towels, and sufficient “leftovers” from previous guests for a day at the beach (umbrellas, beach chairs, toys, sun screen, ect..). The weather was great (around 75-80 in the day, 65-70 at night), water was in the 70’s and not too cold. We had 2 days that were windy, other than that the weather was perfect. With teenagers and not wanting to have to “rough it”, we were split on doing a resort or something like Guana Cay. Don’t worry, Guana is not roughing it (unless you’re a type-A personality) and has enough to do to keep the kids/parents occupied. The girls had a great time and we got to spend some excellent quality time with the kids just hanging out (and yes, there is internet). Guana is probably what the Bahamas were like 10-15 years ago. It is laid back, nice people and not overly touristy. You will need to rent a golf cart to get around. We rented/reserved ours before we arrived (Gina will give you the contact information) and they met us at the dock with the cart. Rent a boat for a day or three to explore Man-o-War, Hope Island and other nearby Cays (I am by no means a ‘sailor’ but had no problem getting in and around the nearby islands). I’d recommend bringing snorkeling equipment. If you have young ones, bring a cheap fishing rod to catch small fish for fun. There are 5 restaurants, liquor store, grocery store, laundry, boat and cart rentals so don’t worry about there not being any ‘supplies’. We preferred Grabbers, it seemed less ‘bar-like’, had more space to lounge and was just more laid back. They had kayaks you can use (free) – highly recommend paddling out to the little island 200 yds from shore for great snorkeling. Kidds bar is on the main drag by the docks, it is more of a local hang out but a great place to sit and meet folks and just hang out once the sun has gone down. You are going to pay D.C/NYC prices for food and drink.

Beautiful home in idealic location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple made the long trek from Alaska to stay at Watch Hill and our stay could not have been more wonderful. We enjoyed the Christmas and New Years Holidays on the island and left our frigid -55 below temperatures behind.

Gina, the caretaker, was fantastic, the house was cozy and inviting, and the kitchen was great for cooking our catch of the day in. We rented our own boat for most of our stay from Troy at the dive shop and got our fill of freshly speared fish and lobster. I speared the largest lobster of the trip right out on the reef in front of the house!

This was our second trip to the Abacos, the first for our friends, and Watch Hill could not have been a better retreat for our island hopping and daily boating adventures. My husband and I also celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary (and a loooong over due honeymoon) on this trip! Our next trip to the Abacos will undoubtably find us staying in this beautiful house again.

Heaven by the Sea

Probably best family vacation we've ever had. Great house with beautiful views and long sandy beach right in front of the house. Short walk to Nipper's. So fun. Would do it again in a minute!

Watch Hill Was Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two daughters and I stayed at Watch Hill in June 2011 and we had a wonderful time. It is a charming house with fantastic views of the ocean and beach, which are spectacular. The house is attractively decorated, well equipped, and conveniently located. This was our second visit to Guana Cay and third trip to the Abacos. Watch Hill was easily the nicest house we have rented. We also highly recommend using Troy and Maria Albury at Dive Guana (right around the corner) when renting golf carts and boats, which are two important ingredients for maximizing your enjoyment of Guana.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Watch Hill in May 2010. There were 3 couples on the trip and we could not have had a better time. The house was perfect and Gina, the key holder/care taker, could not have been better. Guana is a great place to visit if you're looking to relax and get away from everything.

Favorite Island Rental

  • 5 of 5

Watch Hill is by far our favorite rental property on Guana Cay! We are frequent visitors to the island and find this property to be the most convenient location with the most incredible ocean views. The house itself is a perfect design for families or couples, with each having separate baths and balconies overlooking the ocean. The linens are all provided and the decor is a bright cottage style with an island theme. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare a wonderful island meal of fresh fish or lobster.

The best feature of this lovely home is the large deck overlooking miles of beautiful sandy beach and coral reefs. The views from this vantage point are everchanging, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The beach itself, is never crowded and reefs are located directly in front of the property for snorkeling or diving.

Our most recent visit to Watch Hill was in July of 2010, which provided a wonderful week of island hopping with our rental boat and successful charter fishing with one of the local fisherman. The islands are beautiful and there is always something fun to do!

Over the past 8 years we have introduced many of our friends and family to the beauty of the Abaco Islands. We chose Watch Hill as the site for our honeymoon trip several years ago and have continued our visits ever since. We recommend this property highly and plan to return.
