Overview

Berry Islands House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Full bathrooms, 1 Half bathroom, sleeps 8 comfortably!

If you enjoy the best, this home is for you! Sugar Palms is a luxurious 4/3.5 home on pristine Great Harbour Cay, Berry Islands, Bahamas. Relax on the large sundeck with a drink at sunset or enjoy the views and sounds of the clear turquoise ocean while dining al fresco on the rear terrace. This retreat is beautifully decorated and includes many luxurious amenities: a large granite island in the kitchen, wine fridge, ice maker, plasma TV with satellite, Bose surround system (CD/DVD, iPod dock), custom artwork, spacious master bath with rain shower, reverse osmosis water filtration. The large great room has a dining table that seats 8. The house is equipped with air conditioners & ceiling fans throughout.There is a wraparound terrace and three of the four bedrooms have oceanviews. After a dip in the sea you can shower off outdoors. There is a laundry room with sink, washer and dryer. All the comforts of home in paradise! If you would like we can help you to arrange air and boat charters.

The Island: This beautiful haven offers pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, abundant sea life and friendly locals. It is located in the northern end of the Berry islands. There is a 9-hole golf course, a large hurricane protected marina, small grocery stores, local restaurants and a newly paved 5000 ft. airstrip. There are also twice daily flights from Nassau, and charters and shared charters from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Golf cart and boat rentals are available from Happy People (Elron Rolle). You can also buy fresh seafood and conch salad from the fishermen at the marina. This is an amazing vacation spot whether you want to kick back and relax or have fun in the sun. Truly a special paradise that does not disappoint!

Activities and Dining: On the island you can go shelling and looking for sand dollars on the flats on the south side of the island at low tide. This beautiful beach is known as 'Shell Beach'. It is worth a visit just to see it. You can also explore the caves and abandoned hotel on the north side, just a few minutes from the house. There are a few restaurants on the island that serve delicious Bahamian and International food. Enjoy conch fritters, or grouper fingers with a drink at the Rocky Hill Pool Bar & Reaturant at the Marina. Also Coolie Mae's in Bullock's Harbour serves delicious cracked conch and she can make you Banana Bread. At certain times of the year you can partake in local festivals and celebrations: every Friday in late June to mid July is Junkanoo, & the first week in August is Lobsterfest. However, if you just want to relax, read a good book or nurse a tropical drink in paradise, this is the perfect place!

Fishing and Boating: Don't miss a delicious lunch at Flo's Restaurant, finding the Blue Hole on Hoffman Cay and exploring the surrounding cays. Percy or Joe Darville are excellent fishing guides and can maneuver you through the flats to bonefish or take you deep sea fishing. There is fantastic snorkeling and sport fishing. Please note only Hawaiian slings may be used for spear fishing. You can expect to catch snappers, grouper, yellowtail, lobster and conch. You can rent boats from Elron at Happy People at the Marina.

HIGH FIVE!

  • 5 of 5

We are reluctant to share our experience at Sugar Palms for fear that it will become too booked for our future use. But it is only fair to say that Sugar Palms deserves its 5 star ratingl

1) Great Harbour Cay and Sugar Palms provided the ideal backdrop for our family's reunion over the holidays.

2) The position of the house on Sugar Beach is incredible. Sunrise, sunset, both spectacular. Views of glowing cruise ships floating on the horizon and a gorgeous sugar white beach littered only by our footprints.

3) The house was tastefully and practically furnished and equipped. The owners having anticipated our every need.

4) Boating excursions to nearby islands, exploring reefs, wrecks, and 5 lb. lobsters!

5) Best memories we will have of this island will be the connections we made with the friendly, caring people there: Elon and Hans at the marina, the people of St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Shelly, Nelson, Kevin W., Tony, "Stinky," Coolie Mae! Thank you for welcoming us into your community.

A very special house on a very special island. *****!

Fantastic get away home!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend staying at this beautiful home with a wonderful ambiance and setting. We had a quick expedition and fishing trip with the guys, and it was so delightful coming back and relaxing in the back deck and watching the waves while having a cocktail. The accommodations were ideal for all us guys. My three sons and brother enjoyed the home and would love a repeat. If you're considering a home to enjoy in the Berry Islands, this home is perfect!

Perfect Weekend House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for the weekend! We arrived as two mothers, and 3 children and the set up was perfect. We couldn't believe how deserted the beach was, and it allowed us great times with the kids. Working with the owners was amazing - everything was set up perfectly and was exactly as it was explained. We used the recommended chef for lunches and dinners, and it was great. The house is immaculate, and comfortable. Will definitely recommend to others as well as return again soon!

Excellent Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic family vacation at Great Harbor Island is the wonderful home. We have 3 adult sons and we stayed for one week. The house was spotless and has every kitchen amenity you could possibly need. We love the private beach out front, although my husband and boys spent most of the time bone fishing (WHICH WAS EXCELLENT). Another great part of this rental is that you can rent the owners car, which is a must to get around. It was a memorable vacation and we would definetly go back!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week with two of our children. The house is very well laid out and has every convenience. It was clean and well stocked with all the essentials: beach towels, nice linens and a kitchen with everything you could need. The master suite was especially nice with views of the water and a large bathroom. Additionally it is sited on the opposite side of the house from the other bedrooms so a quiet spot can always be found. The porch overlooking the water has a large dining table and is shaded so we enjoyed it both during the day and in the evening. The owner was accessible by email and phone and was extremely gracious and accommodating to work with. The island is quiet and perfect for enjoying the beach, boating and enjoying time with your family. I would highly recommend this property.

Relaxing get away

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house with all of the amenities, just steps from the beach. The house is very well maintained and everything was just like home. In March, there were very few visitors and we had the beach to entirely to ourselves as far as the eye could see. The caves are very interesting but you do have to drive to see most. Plan to buy food at the small grocery store and cook in occasionally since there are only a few restaurants. If you like a very secluded, quiet get away with few distractions, you will love this island. Fishing is beautiful but the bonefish are skittish. The children loved going on the boat with the guide to see all of the sea creatures: stingrays, starfish, conch, lemon sharks, parrot fish and more.
