'DOLPHIN LOOKOUT'- OCEANFRONT, BREATHTAKING PANORAMIC VIEWS

Great Guana Cay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

Dolphin Lookout(TM) is like a 'ship on land,' anchored and secluded on the southeast tip of this tropical out island coral atoll. This wonderful newer hand-crafted Bahamian cottage, is perched on a bluff, providing spectacular views of the gorgeous Bahamian turquoise ocean and breath taking vistas across Scotland Bay to the beautiful little private coral island of Scotland Cay.

Guana's beaches are 'Fodor's choice' for the best beaches in the Bahamas. Just a few minutes from Dolphin Lookout, begin miles of white powdery sand beaches, where you may only see your foot prints in the sand. A magnificent outer reef, which is the 3rd largest in the world, runs the entire length of Guana Cay, and within a 'stones throw' from this very special oceanfront cottage are numerous inner reefs and coral gardens teaming with colorful marine life. Extraordinary white sand beaches, reefs, coral gardens, snorkeling, swimming, diving, kayaking are accessible by foot or golf cart and are only a few minutes from Dolphin Lookout.

About 2 miles west of Dolphin Lookout(TM) is a quaint, picturesque settlement, home to 100-125 permanent residences, descendants of loyalists, who migrated to the Bahamas from the Carolinas, Virginia and New York during the revolutionary war.

Here in the settlement, you will find Guana Harbour grocery store, several great restaurants, Donna's golf cart rentals, the upscale Orchid Bay Yacht club and Marina, a dive shop, boat rentals, and Milos fresh fruit and vegetable stand. Yes, this out island experience may be the closest thing to 'heaven on earth' for ocean lovers. To us it continues to be a fairy tale experience. Dolphin Lookout may well be that vacation or retirement home away from home you have been dreaming about. Sound and look to good to be true? Please note the comments by Dolphin Lookout guests, the additional photos below, and then you decide.

PERFECT FOR US

  • 5 of 5
Hi Ben,
We absolutely loved Dolphin Lookout and want to return. It was perfect for us. The views were incredible-almost unreal. We ran on the beach in the morning and jumped straight into the ocean for a sea bath afterwards. It is hard to believe how clear and turquoise the water is. in the afternoon we snorkeled and sat on the dock. The walk to the dock is beautiful-feels like a vineyard. On most nights we went into town for dinner. The fish was fresh and delicious-I am very curious to know what seasonings were used in Grabber's Broil in foil. We contemplated using the kayaks but never did as we were too relaxed and happy to bother.
Gina and Ron were very helpful and nice. Everything was easy.
Thanks,
Donna

AMAZING TIME AT DOLPHIN LOOKOUT

  • 5 of 5
Hello Ben,
Josh and I had an AMAZING time at Dolphin Lookout. It could not have been a more perfect honeymoon. I think the best part about it was the fact the house was so far off of the beaten path which really gave you a sense of true Abaco. We aren't really resort type people and prefer to be surrounded by nature, which made Dolphin Lookout the perfect place for us to stay. The cottage itself is beautifully maintained and decorated, clean and well stocked. The outdoor shower is wonderful. The surrounding beaches,(particularly Caysera), and reefs are fantastic. We spent almost the entire time snorkeling which was partly why we chose Dolphin Lookout. The local Bahamians, particularly Gina and Ronald, were incredibly friendly and helpful. Troy and Maria from Dive Guana were also fantastic, and we did end up doing a snorkel charter with them to Fowl Cay which was just beautiful. We have recommended your cottage to friends and family. We hope to return to Guana Cay and Dolphin Lookout in the not too distant future. Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful home for the week.
Warmest regards,
Tama and Josh

2ND TRIP WAS EVEN BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Dolphin Lookout last spring (see my review from May of last year) and this trip was even better than the first. So relaxing. There's nothing better than the view of Scotland Bay from the deck.
And there were some nice improvements to the house, including a new mattress and some new kitchen appliances and gadgets. Very clean and comfortable. We had some great snorkeling off Caysera beach, in Scotland Bay and off the dock by the breakers. We saw a few sharks from the dock and a beautiful spotted eagle ray floated right under us one evening. We went diving with Troy one day and it was fun but the snorkeling was so good by the house that I could have skipped diving altogether and just snorkeled again. We went to Baker's Bay a couple of times and their breakfast was awesome. Now that the other breakfast place closed down it's really the only place you can eat breakfast on the island. Overall I have nothing but glowing reviews for the Lookout and for Ben. Be back next year!!!

AMAZING VIEWS AT DOLPHIN LOOKOU

  • 5 of 5
Dolphin Lookout exceeded my expectations for privacy and fantastic views of the ocean and the bay all from the deck and kitchen table. The caretakers Gina and Ron were very nice and were more than willing to help in any way possible, all we had to do was ask. Ben & Cathy the owners provided detailed information once we made our reservations and this info was very helpful in familarizing ourselves with DL and GGC in advance of our trip. Once we arrived via the ferry and docked at GGC Gina and Ron were there to greet us and take us to pick up our Donna's golf cart for our transportation for the week. They led us out to Dolphin Lookout through the gate of Orchid Bay and showed us around and instructed us on the workings of DL and how to access the dock and kayaks. If you are single or a couple looking to escape to an island paradice without TV and phones then DL is the ultimate place to do this. Of course your computer and cell phone will work at DL but once you are there they slowly but surely seem to loose their importance in your daily life at DL. My wife thought that she would check her work e-mail daily and ended up only checking one time while we were there. Swiming and snokeling off the private dock was easy and the bay was usually protected from the wind and waves of the ocean side. While we were there for 7 days there was a Rage going on and the ocean side waves were 6-8 feet for 5 of the days, finally subsiding to 4-6 the last two days. All this time the bay was still accessable for snorkeling, swiming and fish viewing around the rock out croppings and small coral heads nearby. DL is secluded on the extreem end of GGC but it is still only a short 8 minute golf cart ride from the settlement with all the restaurants,bars and grocery store. The restaurant in Orchid Bay, The Sunsetter, had just opened up the week or two before we arrive and the food we had the two times we dined there was fantastic. Great sunset views and a great staff and we were totally refreshed and relaxed with only a short cart ride back to DL. Barefoot Man was at Nippers on Friday afternoon on the 15th. and was really entertaining and the people watching at Nippers was shall I say, "Interesting and Entertaining" as well. The 5 different beaches we walked on GGC were all beautiful with some still showing signs of damage and debris from Hurricane Sandy. The two closest beaches to DL were soft sand and beautiful ocean views and very secluded. Dolphin Lookout is a great trip!!

RELAXING WEEK IN A GREAT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I went to Dolphin Lookout to get away and relax. Boy did we, Ben & Cathy's place is made just for that! Ben has done a great job of thinking about everything you would need. The pictures are exactly what you will see. Like a few other people have said, if your looking for the night life, Great Guana is not for you. Dolphin Lookout exceded our expectations and hope to be back in the near future. Thanks Ben & Cathy

CAPE CODDERS AWAY FROM HOME....

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at Dolphin Lookout was nothing less than perfect. The cottage and its bluff-top location are beauty filled and have gifted us with enough inspiration to maintain warm, peaceful thoughts throughout the remainder of our New England winter. Thanks to Ben and Cathy for sharing such an amazing place. We will return.
