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.

Review Submitted January 7, 2011 Date of Stay December 2010

A great holiday beach in a beautiful beach house with ocean views and great! The island is fairly small, we can all leave in two days with a bicycle. Beautiful beaches and in the winter hardly anyone there, so it is undisturbed. The weather was cold the first three days earlier, at about 16 ° C, but a dream at about 23 ° C, the water is warm! All the people are nice and always welcome a. Two kayaks (one-and two-seater) we have used extensively to study the two islands. Experiences with the animal world (skates and small sharks) remain insufficient. Two restaurants, two small shops, is not much else on the island except for beach and sun - perfect for adventurers and those who want to escape from reality. Recommended: A quad-Mobile (GSM 850/1900), otherwise you cut off from civilization. Our tri-band or dual-Mobile (Europe) do not work.

FIRST VISIT TO GREAT HARBOUR CAY

  • 5 of 5
We arrived via LeAir (Nassau to GHC) and Hans was waiting for us at the airport. We loaded our bags into his truck and he brought us to the house. He gave us a tour of the Little House on the Berry and graciously offered to take us to the store for some items that we forgot.

The house was beautiful, surpassed all expectations we had. Everything was extremely well kept and clean. The view out on to the water was breathtaking. We would have breakfast every morning out on the deck and just watch the blue sea.

Hans was extremely hospitable throughout the duration of our trip, he would pick us up in the morning and put the bikes and kayak in the back of the truck and bring us to various sites to kayak. When we were done we would leave the kayaks on shore, grab the bikes, and ride home. He would pick up the kayak later in the day.

As far as bringing food over - from CT we brought about 10lbs of meat - everything was vacuumed sealed and frozen put into a zipped up cooler with 6lbs of dry ice. We arrived in Nassau and went to Solomon's for fruit and vegetables. Solomon's is near the airport and is like a Fresh Market. We did a lot of cooking at the house, we put spices in ziplock bags which worked out well for the duration of our trip. We also brought over a few bottles of rum and some mixers.

Things to check out - Shark Creak - we were able to paddle across to a sandbar and explore. Just laid out and went fishing and saw no one all day. Have drinks and a burger at the Beachclub. Fishing with Percy Darville. Drinks at the Pool Bar. Hans' Rum Punch Night at the Marina. A bocci type game with locals around happy hour. Coolie Mae's Mac and Cheese. And a dirty martini at Carriearl Boutique Hotel. And check out the caves.

We used the bikes for a few days to get around and then rented a car. Everything is close enough to bike, but the car made our stay more relaxing.

Without a doubt we will be returning to the "Little House".

FANTASTIC HOUSE / GREAT AMENITIES AND SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
This house is even better than the listing shows. It is an idyllic setting that the house takes advantage of with great views and an awesome oceanside deck where you experience the beautiful azure water close up and in comfort with beach chairs and umbrella. Another favorite hang-out was on the covered deck of the house in comfortable adirondack chairs with foot rests enjoying the view and ocean breeze. There is everything you need and more at this rental, including a high-end Bose speaker to plug in your ipod for your own music.We loved being able to grill there, and use the provided kayaks and bikes. I must say one of the best things about this rental is the owner, Hans, who bends over backward to make your stay special in every way. I have stayed in his properties before and have always received a special hospitality better than any high-end resort. Thank you Hans, and we will be back again!

ONE OF A KIND!

  • 5 of 5
WOW. This place is like stepping inside a Better Homes and Garden magazine, beach cottage edition that is. The house is very tastefully decorated with amazing finishes and furnishings. You will feel relaxed the minute you arrive. Living areas are sunny and bright with panoramic views of the sea, maybe 50 feet away. It is the perfect mix of house and its environment. We particularly loved the bathrooms, they feel like a spa with white tiles and raw wood cabinetry. All the fixtures are definitely top of the line and feel very luxurious. The owners supply wonderful handmade soaps, we particularly liked the mango and passion fruit flavors. Both bedrooms are very comfortable and both have wonderful views of the sea. Linens and towels are new and spotless. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we wanted. EVERYTHING works in the house, what a pleasure. The house came with kayak and bikes for our use, free of charge. Go down the steps to a very nice, clean yard and the sea. During our stay a storm took a lot of the sand away from the beach, but still absolutely beautiful. We just stepped over the rocks to a soft sandy bottom with water so clear we can see our toes. It was like being in your own private swimming pool. Property is very private and you will not see people walking on the beach in front of your house, truly a private beach. We highly recommend this property and will definitely be back with friends.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
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….

  • 5 of 5
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!
