ABACO ABOUND 'THE NUTTY MERMAID-A MAGICAL BEACHFRONT HOME'

Marsh Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This is a slice of heaven and I have many guests that keep returning to enjoy the magic. Maybe you should be one of them!

Looking for tranquility? A private beachfront paradise? Incredible natural beauty? Located North of Marsh Harbour, Abaco Bahamas, this three bedroom, three bathroom, two kitchen/livingroom home (upstairs is one bed/one bath kitchen/living and downstairs two bed/two bath kitchen/living) offers spacious accommodations on a white sugar sand beach, complete with coral reef right out the front door. At the reef are turtles, lobster, colorful fish and an eel named 'Charlie'. It's all right at your doorway! Bedrooms and living rooms all overlook the spectacular turquoise blue Abaco Sea. Did we mention skinny dipping as an option?

Like fishing? Snorkeling? Sailing? Kayaking? We have a kayak and a Sunfish for your use complimentary! Have a boat? Only a three minute boatride to Treasure Cay! Marsh Harbour is 15 minutes by boat or 20 minutes by car. At the house we have provided for our guests - snorkel equipment, kayak, fishing poles, and a Sunfish. There are many quaint towns with excellent restaurants and fun shopping to visit, especially in the outer islands, that are only a ferry boatride away.

Sleeps six privately with two additional sleeper sofas. Take time to call for 'Discounted Specials.' (For privacy I only rent to one group at a time). With privacy, tranquility, great accommodations, and fun activities, this is a great place worth experiencing!! Don't let it slip through your hands like the sand. Enjoy it, kick back in the hammock and get some sand between your toes.

Love the beauty of nature and love this beach! I work hard and play hard but in the end want a peaceful, private beach to relax.

Been coming here since the early 1980's and the waters have this amazing turquois that change with the sunlight that is so magical. The place brings peace in my heart. Abaco is a family island with almost zero crime , I like safe and peaceful.

Nutty Mermaid in the summer

My family, myself, and friends had a great time at the Nutty Mermaid. We have been all over the Bahamas, and I do mean all over. We were a mix of tech divers, reef divers, beachcomers, snorklers, and boaters, and Nutty Mermaid had it all for us. Make no mistake, you will need a car, but those are easily arranged in the city.
A perfect blend of privacy, with access to a "major" city, we really enjoyed the nite sky unpolluted by city lights, no noise, and a world class private beach. I'm not even a beach-goer, but this sandy beach in the back yard is unbeatable for small kids and adults alike. This is on the clear, brilliant, Sea of Abaco; the largest waves we had in our week were maybe 3 inches!
The minor downsides are a few horseflys, and you will need to drive to a restaurant; no real public transportation out there. The use of some minutes on a local cellphone was an unexpected bonus. Highly recommended, and I hope to return.

Perfect Paradise

The Nutty Mermaid has been a magical experience. From the first time you open the door and walk into the house. WOW!!! What a beautiful view of the ocean from the living area and the bedroom. Then when you walk out the French Doors, what a magnificent view, the ocean is so clear and blue and we loved the coconut path to the beach. At the Nutty Mermaid you have all the comfort of home and we loved grilling out. Michelle has all kinds of games to play, snorkeling gear, movies to watch, kites to fly, sandcastle buckets for making your sandcastle and the kayak was so much fun. We can't wait for our next visit to the Abaco Island. But most of all we can't wait to stay at the Nutty Mermaid again. As Michelle always says, " Just think sand between your toes."

We spent 10 glorious days at the Nutty Mermaid and it was fantastic! It had everything we could have thought a house would have. There are such beautiful personal touches and the house was so clean. We would walk in the morning on the beach with our coffee's and wouldn't see a soul. It was like we had the beach to ourselves! I would highly recommend staying there and can't wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us Michelle!

I cannot thank you enough for letting us stay at your gorgeous home!! My wife and I had one of the best trips we have ever taken. The house was wonderful the beach and abaco was beautiful! We will definitely be coming back and will without a doubt know exactly where we want to stay!! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere more perfect than your house. We went to Hopetown one day that was fun and next time we definitely are renting a boat and touring Green Turtle Cay. The days of just enjoying the beach at the house were priceless! I just wanted to say thank you again and everything was beyond our expectations. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Truly Paradise

The listing was very accurate and yet did not do the property justice. You have to see it to believe it. Michelle was wonderful to deal with as well as Joy the caretaker. Very nice, honest people. The property was immaculate and beautifully maintained. Everything worked. There were a lot of extras like snorkel gear, kayack, sunfish, great kitchen equipment etc... The review book at the house gave helpful tips of the sights to see. Nippers at Guana Kay is a must. We ate most meals at home. We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. There were 5 of us aged 26 to 82 and we all had a wonderful time. I will bring my grandson (age 4) next time. It is a very safe area and perfect swimming for all ages. It is truly a treat to spend a week at the Nutty Mermaid. Michelle, thanks for sharing this beautiful place. LCJ Cape Cod MA

Privacy, peace, and tranquility on a private beach is what I love! Fishing, snorkeling, beach combing, sailing, enjoying the stars while swaying on the hammock, swimming, or basking in the warm Caribbean sun are at your front door. Just a short drive or boat ride away all restaurants, shops, and live music are at your demand. It's paradise just waiting to be enjoyed! Life is good!! Michelle

Golf: We have some great golf course nearby, contact me if you would like some details.
