Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage a few weeks ago for about ten days with three children who can't stop raving about the experience.
The owners are delightful and always offering to help make the stay even more enjoyable.
The cottage is charming, well equipped and very well located. A short walk to the beach and the ocean one way, a short walk to the bay and the dock the other way.
The island is beautiful, very quiet and ultra safe for anyone with children. There is not much going on as far as shops and restaurants on Man-O-War but it was exactly what we were looking for. Marsh Harbour is a quick boat ride away if needed :)
We cannot wait to go back, hopefully next year.

Perfect Get a Way!

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful two weeks! We are already making plans for a longer visit next year. This is such a beautiful and peaceful retreat. All you hear are the sounds of the ocean, the lovely song birds, and the wind through the palms. The grounds are exquisite with exotic plants, shrubs, and trees. Everywhere you look there are picture perfect scenes and such privacy. The owners went out of their way to make this a memorable experience for us. There are also the extras here that we have not seen on previous stays on MOW. These important extras include washer/dryer, wifi, TV, transportation to and from the airport, and trips were even offered for provisioning/sightseeing. The cottage is beautifully made with extremely comfortable and lovely furnishings. Everything you need is right on site. The owners live near by and were close if you needed them. But they were always most respectful of our privacy. Man O War Cay is known for its friendliness, good food, shopping, and water activities. Staying at the Janes's "Atlantic Cottage" makes everything so easy and accessible. A perfect vacation destination! We plan on returning to this lovely cottage every year.

****Christmas & New Years on Man-O-War - Paradise!****

****Christmas & New Years on Man-O-War - Paradise!****
  • 5 of 5
Man-O-War was a randomly selected destination that turned out to be the best Christmas/New Year’s treat for our family. Our host extraordinaire, Matthew Janes, guaranteed that we would leave with unforgettable memories. For a random pick, this was a bull’s eye!

Gracious hospitality is an understatement. Matthew met us at the northern airport, Treasure Cay, since we couldn't get a flight into MHH. After buying all our provisions at Maxwells (a great grocery store) we loaded everything into his boat for the short ride to Man-O-War. It was late and the stars were beautiful. He dropped us off at Dock N Dine for dinner and while we ate, he took all our bags and groceries to the cottage then came to get us in the golf cart which we were given use of for the rest of our stay. The cottage is simple but lovely and very comfortable. The construction of the buildings is noteworthy -- Man-O-War is noted for boatbuilding and it is evident in the construction details in the cottage and the home Matthew built. Although the appliances are a bit rustic, we managed wonderfully. We especially enjoyed the rum punches Matthew taught us to make...mmmm!

Waking in the morning to the sight and sound of the ocean was a far cry from a California city!! The settlement is just a short walk, which actually seems longer by golf cart. The little carts darting down Queen's Hwy (just wide enough for 2 to pass) were surreal. We learned quickly that everyone waves as you pass. Opening a "tab" at the grocery store, which we settled when we left using a stateside check, was very convenient –“just tell them you’re staying at the Janes’s.” You will need cash for Lola’s homemade bread and cinnamon rolls – it’s a treat just to go to her house to buy them.

Highlights included the "low end" of the island - low tide was super and so much to see in the water; Christmas dinner at the Abaco Inn; afternoon tea with some of Matthew’s friends; cocktails at Faith’s – a very special lady; scuba diving off the reefs and finding the wreck of the USS Adirondack; renting a power boat and visiting some remote spots; and New Years in Hope Town (wild time, fireworks and the traditional Junkanoo!)

Matthew has been on the island for over 30 years and is a wealth of knowledge and talents – a very skillful sailor, builder, architect, landscaper, and intellect. I doubt this trip would have been as successful or filled with adventure were it not for Matthew.

Great Cottage right on the Atlantic Ocean

  • 5 of 5
I had a great week staying at the cottage. Man-Of-Way Cay is a very nice island to relax on an enjoy the Bahamas. The beach was great and never saw anyone else on it. Beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean from the kitchen. Everyone I met on the island was very friendly especially the owners. I hope to return soon.

Atlantic Cottage, MOW

  • 5 of 5
"We have enjoyed the tranquility of Atlantic Cottage as well as its beautiful surrounding landscape for a total of three months in the last two years. We look forward to returning next year. One lives very close to nature here but with all the comforts and amenities, including telephone, wi-fi, TV, even air conditioning and a generator if needed. The sounds are those of the surf, the birds and tropical quiet.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5
We've rented this cottage twice (February 2008 for one month; and February and March 2009). Couldn't ask for a better location. Close to Atlantic side and also to Eastern Harbour. Hosts are very helpful and friendly. Has a great 'crows nest' for viewing the surrounding Abaco area, including the famous Hopetown Lighthouse. Short walk into 'The Settlement' and to great beaches. A great place to sort of 'chill out' and relax on Man O War Cay!
