BEACH DREAM - BEST LOCATION ON THE BEST BEACH! - NEWER 4BR BEACHFRONT HOME

Great Guana Cay House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms plus 1 half bathroom, Sleeps 9+

Beach Dream, Spectacular Beach House on Great Guana Cay, Abaco, Bahamas

One of the only 4-bedroom houses that is directly on the beach!

Beach Dream is a luxurious beachfront house finished in January 2009 with all new tropical furnishings. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms with a fully-furnished gourmet kitchen, stainless steel appliances and filtered water throughout the house. The house offers an open floor plan including an island with bar stools and a dining room table that seats 8, making Beach Dream perfect for family dinners and entertaining. There is a wall of windows in the great room and dining room overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the gorgeous pink sand beach that stretches for miles. The beach house is elevated and offers panoramic views from the large front deck of the wrap around porch.

If you like the best, Beach Dream is for you...it's EXTRAORDINARY! Every detail has been beautifully executed, from the porcelain tile floors to 10' ceilings in the bedrooms and the vaulted cypress tongue and groove ceilings in the great room

About Great Guana Cay: Great Guana Cay is a barrier island in the Abaco chain of islands in the Bahamas. The third largest reef sits just off shore. The island has about 150 residents but there are quite a few second homeowners and visitors. Guana Cay is a beautiful tropical island with gorgeous beaches that are never crowded and the color of the water is unbelievable! It is secluded yet has all the necessities. There are a few restaurants and bars, a grocery store and a liquor store. Dive Guana offers scuba diving and snorkeling trips, and they also rent nice 21ft. to 23ft. boats for fishing, diving or exploring on your own. World-famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill has very good food and they are family-friendly with a swimming pool. It’s always fun and people come from all of the neighboring islands to visit, especially on Sunday afternoon for the weekly pig roast. Grabber's Bar & Grill is fun, too and a great place to watch the beautiful Guana sunset. Beach Dream is within walking distance to all the fun

Bedroom Details: All of the bedrooms have been furnished with high thread-count sheets and bedding. The master bedroom has a king bed with French doors that open onto the front deck and gorgeous colors of the ocean. The master bath has double sinks with a shower tiled to the ceiling. The second master also has a king bed with its own entrance into the bathroom that can also be accessed from the hallway. It has a tub/shower that is also tiled to the ceiling. The half bath is located near the third and fourth bedrooms. The third bedroom has a queen bed and the fourth has a bunk bed and a twin bed.

Restaurants and Shops on Great Guana Cay : World-famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill is family-friendly with a swimming pool and consistently excellent food. It’s always fun and people come from all of the neighboring islands to visit, especially on Sunday afternoon for the weekly pig roast. A local character named Milo runs a stand on the main harbour street that offers home-grown vegetables, citrus and lobster tails. Don’t forget Grabber’s for dinner and to watch the spectacular sunsets. Pirate Cove’s Tiki Hut has a daily special for lunch and dinner as well as ice cream. Another option is Orchid Bay Yacht Club & Marina which has a nice restaurant as well as a full-service marina. Island Flavours offers take-home freshly-cooked food Thursday through Sunday including excellent conch salad. Beach Dream is within walking distance to everything, but it’s fun to rent a golf cart for a day or two to explore the entire seven mile island including the Conch Shack and restaurant at the exclusive Bakers Bay Golf & Beach Club.

We love diving, snorkeling, boating, fishing, and relaxing on the pink-sand beach...and our daughter earned her SCUBA certification with Troy at Dive Guana in 2012.

Grant Kelley and Ellen Kelley purchased this house in 2008

We traveled throughout the Bahamas for over 20 years exploring different islands. When it came time to build our dream house, we chose the most spectacular island that offered everything we wanted...GREAT GUANA CAY!

Beach Dream is all that we could ask for and more.

  • 5 of 5
I have had the great fortune of travelling throughtout the world. Our preferences are to stay in villas,homes or small bungalow type of accomadations as opposed to large hotels. We also prefer to cook as many meals as possible to cut down on costs. Beach Dream is all that we could ask for and more. The setup for our group of 9 people was very comfortable and open. The setting is perched upon a beautiful sand dune and the beach sand is the softest we've ever encountered. The coral reef right off the beach is about as convenient as could be possible. Our 7 year old son made many swims to the reef and saw all kinds of fish and turtles. My top 3 favorite things about Beach Dreams are, 1. centrally located on the island 2. the onobstructed view of the Alantic ocean 3. the accomodations of the house, very well laid out. If any of these things are appealing to you, I would suggest looking into this spot and making your own Beach Dreams.

Beach Dreaming....

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I shared Beach Dream with 6 twenty something young adults. The four bedrooms allowed everyone to have their own bed and privacy, yet share an open, spacious living area with flat screen TV and every channel available. There was an iPod dock for music and wifi as well. The kitchen is very well equipped. We used it daily. Location, location, location- nearby Nippers and walkable to Grabbers. Will definitely return.

Beach Dream is the Perfect Name

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous house!! And the location is absolutely perfect! It is close to everything......and having Nippers two doors down is great. We came to love Great Guana Cay. What a lovely intimate island......everyone knows everyone and you immediately feel like you belong. We went diving all week with Troy at Dive Guana and had a blast......beautiful reefs and fish. I actually had a grouper kiss me on the check.....uninvited of course but I was completely delighted!! Our group went scuba diving in front of the house multiple times and was excited to find the swim throughs that are so popular around Guana Cay to also be right in front of the house.

Sitting on the porch was one of our favorite things to do.....the view is absolutely spectacular, listening to the ocean, watching the full moon rise was gorgeous!!

The guys in our group went fishing with Ricky Sands and caught a shark, plus fish that we grilled at the house......yummmm....and we had Sashimi Tuna.....you can't get any fresher or more delicious than that!!

Driving around the island in golf carts was a must! Not that you had to have one to get around since everything is so close and convenient but it did make it easier to get our dive gear and tanks to and from the house on the days we were going to shore dive in front of the house. Plus we just had fun riding around looking at the island which by the way is very clean and very well taken care of.

The house had everything we needed and could imagine!! The pictures of the house are exactly the way it is.....absolutely gorgeous!! All week long we were constantly talking about how "perfect" the house was! It you were to dream up the perfect house on the perfect beach.........well......that would be Beach Dream house on Great Guana Cay!! WE LOVED IT!!!

Just got back from a week on Guana staying at Beach Dreams. House was perfect: very clean, everything worked, perfect location, unreal view of beautiful beach and reefs. Island was easy to get around with great restaurants and bars. We ate lobster and fresh fish every night. We rented a boat from Dive Guana and covered a lot of the near by islands. No body wanted to leave. Owners were very helpful and easy to work with. We will be back next year. Highly recommend Beach Dreams.

Ah, Beach Dream!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 kids, sister, brother-in-law and niece all met at Beach Dream. The house is exactly as advertised. Very beautiful, comfortable and very well stocked. We cooked most suppers in and always had what we needed for the meal.

The site of the house is great. You can sit outside in comfortable chairs and listen to the ocean.

Gina and her husband took great care of us.

Thanks Grant, for letting us into your home.

Beach Dream is a spectacular beach house located on Great Guana Cay in the Abaco chain of islands in the Bahamas. Great Guana Cay has a gorgeous pink sand beach that stretches for miles along the ocean and is never crowded. The house has tremendous views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a magnificent reef for snorkeling and shore dives is just off the beach in front of the house. There is great deep-sea fishing just beyond the nearby barrier reef which is the third longest in the world. On the other side of the island is the Sea of Abaco known as the 'cruising capital' of the Bahamas due to its calm waters and beautiful anchorages. Beach Dream is conveniently located to all of the restaurants and shops and is just a short walk up the beach from world famous Nipper's Beach Bar and Grill.

See more photos at http://www.GuanaBeachDream.com

Other Activities: excellent snorkeling in front of the house, boating, deep-sea fishing

Golf: A golf cart is needed to access Baker's Bay Golf and Ocean Club at the north end of the island offers lunch and dinner in the restaurant and lunch, appetizers and drinks at the Conch Shack. It is a well-run resort that is newly developed. They allow anyone to visit for food and drinks but a membership is required to play golf at the Tom Fazio-designed course.
