CHARMING BEACHFRONT HOUSE FOR RENT IN BEAUTIFUL GREAT HARBOUR CAY, BAHAMAS

Berry Islands House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps up to 4 guests

Charming beachfront house with its own secluded cove. It is perfect for couples looking to get away and relax in a quiet island paradise. The house has two bedrooms, two bathroom, a full kitchen and spacious living/dining area. You will fall in love with the attractive tropical décor, exposed beam ceilings, and solid white oak floors. Step outside onto the covered veranda to enjoy a fantastic view of the iridescent blue sea and off-shore cays. The house has air conditioning and satellite TV. Your rental also includes all linens, towels, and kitchen utensils.

Great Harbour Cay: The entire east coast of Great Harbour Cay is fringed by miles of beautiful powdery white sand beaches. Whether you want to relax in calm, shallow waters or feel the energy of large ocean swells curling along the shore, you can always find the perfect beach to suit your mood. Spend an afternoon at Lover’s Beach to watch the clouds change color as the sun travels across the sky. Take a serene bike ride to Sugar Beach Caves for a day of snorkeling and exploring. Or just relax on a beach chair sipping your favorite drink. Don’t miss a day trip to Flo's Conch Bar for fresh sea food and visit the 'Blue Hole' at Hoffman Cay on your way back. There are several uninhabited cays (pronounced 'keys'), south of Great Harbour Cay, which are perfect for a picnic or to spend a day in total seclusion.

Dining: A few restaurants on the island offer local and international fare. For ambiance and great Piña Coladas, try the Pool Bar and restaurant behind the marina. Cooly Mae’s, in Bullocks Harbour, serves excellent local food and for dessert try the famous “Guava Duff”, it is delicious. The Beach Club, down the beach from the house, is also a great place for breakfast and lunch.

Marina: Great Harbour Cay has one of the best marinas in the Northern Bahamas. High cliffs protect the harbor area from almost all inclement weather. Please contact the harbor master for boat/slip rental.

Best Vacation Ever!

My husband and I visited GHC for our 10th anniversary. After a long trip to arrive, Bradley was there to greet us as soon as our plane landed! He was a wonderful person who was available for anything while we were on the island.
The cottage was absolutely the best! Perfect for the two of us, very clean and fresh! The cottage ceiling was vaulted and allowed the cool sea air to circulate so wonderfully!
Location was perfect! Property was gorgeous, wonderful beachfront and views! We used the bikes to ride everywhere, which was fun and gave us some exercise.....fairly close to the grocery store and the Pool Bar...which we went for some very yummy dinners. I definitely advise to bring as much food as you can, as during the time we were there, supplies had not reached the island for 2 weeks. We had brought some frozen marinated steaks and chicken, along with dehydrated fruit and veggies.....which were great to cook with, as we love cooking! After the first night to ourselves we were feeling pretty lonesome ( we are used to three young boys runnning around), however, we were put to ease and had wonderful conversation with locals at the Pool Bar...which we visited every few days.....not to mention the food was delicious, LOVED the conch bits!
Barely saw a soul on the beach, so private and natural....it was just amazing to find sand dollars, conch shells and coral washed up on the shore. I still cannot believe that such a beautiful island is so private and quiet. Spent the days exploring and enjoyed listening to our music on the porch and beach, and at night time we saw cruise ships passing by...
Locals were all very gracious and helpful. During our stay there was a low, or cold front about 300 miles to the east, so it was a little windy and wavy. Everyone kept apologizing to us for the weather, which we found funny because we live in the northeastern US and it was like our normal summer weather! When we got home there was snow on our lawn! After sharing our adventure with family and friends, we are planning to come back next year. This was so nice to get away from the busy everyday life, lay back and enjoy the natural beauty...which is breathtaking...our pictures look like they are from a magazine! While not for everyone, it was an adventure that we are glad we took, as nothing on a cruise or tourist trap would have come close! Thank you Hans for sharing your wonderful house and letting us enjoy the wonderful island and people of Great Harbour Cay.

IT’S BETTER IN THE BAHAMAS….

BUT BEST AT LITTLE HOUSE ON THE BERRY. We found this house to be extremely charming and feels very comfortable. The pictures don’t do much justice to this property because the limited aperture of a camera could never capture the entire setting. Everything in this house comes together effortlessly from the furnishings to the dark wood floors and the white volume ceilings. Turn around to gaze at a magnificent, 180 degree view of the sparkling blue Caribbean and off shore islands through the glass doors and windows. The house is also very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The beach out front is long with powder-fine white sand, and because there are no hotels on the island, we seldom saw anyone else. This is how the Caribbean used to be years ago, un-crowded, pristine, private and secluded, a setting that has just about disappeared everywhere else. Great Harbour Cay is a small island, but very scenic and clean. You can definitely tell the island was originally developed as a resort destination with a golf course that encircles the residential areas, a large marina with townhomes and a restaurant on the beach. There are also a couple of beautiful islands reached by walking on the sand flats at the southern end of Great Harbour Cay, a great day adventure. We spent a week and were never bored. Finally, meeting the locals is a must and will completely enhance your experience. We found everyone to be kind and friendly towards us (both locals and expats equally). All-in-all, a beautiful little island and definitely a memorable vacation, we are already planning our return!

If you are looking for a truly restful, relaxing and romantic getaway this is your new secret place and the Little House on the Berry is your oasis. The home is beautifully decorated and kept in impecable condition with a beautiful location on the ocean with a unbelievable view of an island and passing cruise ships outside your front door. Hans the owner is a gentleman and very easy to deal with as well as very helpful with island information. All the residents of the island we met were simply beautiful people, this is the real Bahamas and make sure you get to know them. We met a couple of homeowners on the island as well and they are like the residents laid back and enjoying island time. If you are looking for nightlife and dining opportunities this is likely not your place, if you are looking to be together and enjoy some time, wine and dine together with your spouse this is the place to come. We were celebrating our anniversary and were able to renew our vows with some help by Kevin from Berry Island Air ( he can help you with anything, including how to get to Berry Island). We rented a vehicle from the marina and found it well worth the expense(don't expext much for $40) we got a 96 Suzuki Samari (the Beast), it was wonderful and added to the island experience. So if it sounds what your looking for just book it and don't worry about anything. If you would like any more info just email me I would be happy to share any information I have. Enjoy!

My wife and I planned our summer vacation to the Bahamas; one week in Great Harbour Cay and one week in Little Exuma. However, we enjoyed our time in Great Harbour Cay so much that after two days in Little Exuma we returned to Great Harbour Cay to finish our vacation. We found Great Harbour Cay to be an undiscovered gem in the Caribbean. From the moment we arrived, we were met with friendly smiling faces.... a rare quality these days. At our first night's dinner, the pool bar staff encouraged us to play Bacci Ball at the Beach Club the following afternoon. When we arrived at the Beach Club the next day, everyone treated us as friends, not visitors. The games are great fun especially after a few VERY strong cocktails. The east coast of Great Harbour Cay is one 7 mile long beautiful beach and the empty main road parallels the beach for the entire length of the island. We thoroughly enjoyed bike riding and finding secluded beaches all along the road. This island also has good roads and the properties on the main road are beautiful and well kept as compared to other Caribbean islands. Little House on the Berry is precious, a vacation in itself. The house feels quintessential Caribbean with the high beam ceilings and dark mahogany floors. The covered porch is a delight for siesta time. We found the house extremely clean and well maintained. The property is large with an expansive manicured lawn to the beach, and the beach is postcard perfect! The sand is powdery white with a gentle curve that runs for about four miles to the sand flats at the south end of the island. The owners also provided much helpful information before our trip. The caretaker, Bradley, is a big jolly fellow with a big welcoming smile that makes you feel right at home. I could write a book describing our vacation, but you have to experience it for yourself.... we absolutely loved it.
