. We had traveled to the Bahamas for many years until one year we found Marsh Harbour and fell in Love with Sugarloaf cay. We build home and guest cottage there and love every minute relaxing in paradise. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.

Roger Hansen purchased this cottage in 2000

Marsh Harbor is located in the northern most portion of the Bahamas. The Abaco's are known as the 'bunny slope' because the main Island Great Abaco is surrounded by a ring of islands called Cays pronounced' Keys', then the cays are surrounded by a ring of reefs which protect the 'Sound ' from extreme waves. The sound is about 100 miles long and 5 miles wide. We are located in the middle of the Abacos about 100 miles east of palm beach , reachable from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Palm beach by major commuter airlines. American, Continental, and several commuter airlines.I will be glad to send you a list. We have excellent stores for everything you will need. Groceries of all kinds are close by. This beautiful area will make you return year after year.

A wonderful boating area. Rental boats are available with no experience necessary. Great for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, shelling island hoping..All in a protected sound of crystal clear water. Wonderful beach front bars and resorts loaded with fun and good times. On Our island you will have complete privacy and security surrounded by water, yet only 250 yards from the mainland. A wonderful breeze will make your stay most enjoyable.

Great Location with Beautiful View

Coral Cottage on Sugar Loaf Cay is a wonderful location for relaxing and boating. It is close to one of the most beautiful private islands we've ever seen and within 20-30 minutes of most of the other gorgeous cays.

The Cottage is decorated very nicely and has amazing views. However, it is in need of maintenance and a good cleaning. Having said that, the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to returning to Abaco again soon.

The caretaker, Woodie, and the owner, were pleasant to work with and were helpful. They always replied quickly and the caretaker lives on the island so is readily available.

Abaco and its surrounding Cays are absolutely breathtaking. We did not want to come back home and are already planning a return trip to Abaco.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay on our island, I am sorry that you appeared to be unhappy with the maintenance . The onsite caretaker was there for you and you never called upon him to correct any issues. Yet you complimented him in the next sentence.Please contact me about any specific issues needing attention. For future renters please note that ALL previous renters were very complimentary and rated the accommodations as 5 stars.
Upon asking previous renters they all said that they had all positive notes on cleaning and maintenance. We do not know where the bad reviews came from. If you read into the responce you will see the so called renter contradict him self, we think he was not a renter but a scammer trying to hurt the most popular cottage that is rented.

We had a wonderful time and made many great memories with the kids. We snorkeled everyday and explored as much of the area as we possibly could! Perry was absolutely wonderful to us. Thank you for sending him our way. He was literally an angel on earth the night we arrived. I don't know what we would have done without him. Keith at Dive Abaco gave Abby and me a trip of a lifetime. Since we hadn't been able to finish our certification, he asked us to perform a few of the skills in the pool. We did and he agreed to take us, along with my husband and son (who are certified) on an excursion. It was a major highlight of our trip. The indescribable beauty aside (it speaks for itself), Keith made that happen for us and I would highly recommend him to anyone. The Sail Shop and Man-o-War Cay was one of our favorite stops also. Amazing people! Thanks for sharing your "escape from reality" with us.

This is truly a great place to escape from everyone and everything!! If you choose to see other people and enjoy what the Abacos are all about-you can do that also. I really loved the fact that I could just jump in the boat we rented and visit all the Cays...or stay at the great cottage and do nothing!!!!

Some vacations...

When we made the reservation Roger told us that our time in Abacos "would rearrange our priorities". I didn't really appreciate what he meant until the time flew by and it was time to leave. For the first time ever we had experienced a vacation that existed almost like an alternate reality - nobody wanted to go home! the cottage is very comfortable - they even had cold beer in the fridge for our arrival? We followed Roger's instructions and found we had everything we needed for the trip. We had planned to go out for dinners but the kitchen was so easy and user friendly we often ate at the cottage, enjoying the deck. Temperatures in April were perfect - we never even turned on the A/C. This is a perfect vacation experience for my family - and we look forward to returning again and again - thanks Roger and Sandi!

We just returned from a week at the cottage. The property is clean, comfortable and bright. It was air conditioned but we never found the need for it. There is a plethora of screened doors and windows to let the fresh sea breeze blow through, as well as many ceiling fans.

The cabin has two large bedrooms and lots of closet and storage space. The large decks are great for breakfast and to watch the sunset over evening cocktails. The kitchen is well equipped, Nearly anything you will need is there and there are a lot of extras left behind by previous guests. The Wifi worked wonderfully for communicating with family at home (we used Skype). There is a DVD player, CD player and TV with satellite service. The private beach is equipped with a porch swing, another great place to watch the sun set.

Sugarloaf Cay is well located to use as a starting point for a day of adventure. Use the VHF radio in the cottage to listen to the cruiser's net at 8:15am on channel 68. Get the local weather and find out what is happening where. Don't forget to pick up a copy of Steve Dodge's Cruising Guide to the Abacos, there is a new version every year. With it you will be able to find all the restaurants, snorkeling and fishing spots and other local attractions.

Roger was very easy to deal with and offered a great amount of guidance about the area. No reservations about renting from him in the future. I would also recommend Sea Horse Boat Rentals. A great company out of Hope Town Harbour.

1 Abaco beach resort
Car: not necessary

We are located on a very private island within eye sight of Abaco beach resort ,1 mile or 5 minutes by outboard from Marsh Harbour.

We are located in the northern most portions of the Abaco islands of the Bahamas only 1 hour flight from Palm beach fl.. The enjoyment of the Abacos is the beautiful crystal clear waters. The surrounding islands, called cays “pronounced keys” each has its own personality. All have beaches and snorkeling. Actually all our restaurants are reachable by small outboard boat. I have attached information separately on Airlines and rental boats for your reference. The boat rental companies will arrange to deliver to the resort if you ask. I suggest you purchase the Guide This will be very helpful in your visit : Cruising Guide to Abaco by Steve Dodge for complete details on the entire Abaco area including photos of all cays and facilities. The best place is to order direct from the publisher www.wspress.com
