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.
Beach, kayak, beach, sailing, beach, fishing, beach, hammock under the stars.
It's crazy great. The pictures DO NOT do it justice at all. We were floored rolling out the back door onto that fantastic beach. We haven't left it since we unpacked the car.
Dwight and Diana have been awesome. Dwight hooked me up with a hawaiian sling for the lobsters and that thing is downright lethal. I got 1 with a tickle stick and net in about an hour of chasing them around, at which point Dwight came down the beach and offered the sling. I got 2 more good sized lobster in no time and easily could have had more. I saw one that was easily the largest I've ever seen and I've lobstered many times in the Florida Keys. I swear it looked as big as a small dog. HUGE. He was lucky, as I already had more than enough for the two of us, so he was spared, although if he doesn't move on he may not be so lucky tomorrow. Needless to say we had lobster for dinner.
Dwight also seems to like fishing more than a little and might head out with us to show us the ropes out on the water, which would be awesome for these two newbies to the area.
I'll try your suggestion on the plankton tomorrow. I was out wandering a bit this evening, but didn't know about that, so I'll give that a whirl tomorrow.
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.
We had a wonderfully, relaxing vacation. I really loved the place feeling so private with the beautiful beach and water! The location was perfect for exploring both in the water and along the beaches or just relaxing. We couldn't have asked for any better of a location.
A fabulous place. The pictures don't do the house or the surroundings justice. The beach is beautiful and you sit on the beach and watch turtles and fish swim by. The water is crystal clear and great snorkeling is at the islands and surrounding shore. The owner and caretaker have thought of everything and are extremely helpful with your stay. The house is perfect with its set up and the kids loved having their own place upstairs with the great views. Can't wait to get back
This was the perfect getaway for our family. The Nutty Mermaid is a little piece of heaven and we were blessed to get to enjoy it. The house is loaded with everything you need and the pictures don't do it justice. We loved snorkeling around the island, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and walking on the beautiful beach. We visited the blue hole and our kids thought it was an amazing place. We loved Treasure Cay's beach as well and JIC boat rentals took great care of us in providing a boat for our needs. (Go to pizza night there on Thursday at the marina!) We enjoyed BBQ night at "The Burner" and Chris entertained us. Make sure to visit the Pineapple Bar on Green Turtle Cay, excellent conch! Also, feed the sharks and stingrays at Manjack Cay. We loved all our excursions to the other islands, but nothing better than returning to the Nutty Mermaid for dinner and beach time in the afternoons. Oh and the sunrise is beautiful too! Michelle has thought of everything you could need while staying in her beautiful home. Thank you for a great vacation!!
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!
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.
