I'm Diane Knoll and I have lived here on Andros Island for 26 years. Moved from St John USVI, Florida & Ct.

I then found this Bay of Pleasant Harbour with its beautiful white sand beach and fell in love with it.. Great swimming, diving, fishing and wonderful people.

I have been a sailing gal for most of my life.

Diane Knoll purchased this cottage in 1989

This Property is the most beautiful location on Andros

with its beautiful white sand beach & great fishing.

FABULOUS WEEK FOR FLYFISHING AND FAMILY FUN

  • 5 of 5
We chose this rental on Andros Island for our three-generation family of six because it offered close proximity to excellent bonefishing for our two flyfishers, a beautiful setting in a protected bay with a close-in reef for our 8 and 11 year old grandchildren to snorkel, interesting and varied habitat for all of us to explore, and a quiet, private location for relaxing. Our accommodations included the two bedroom cottage plus a lovely studio with a kingsize bed and an amazing bathroom with a view of the ocean for us grandparents. We shared the kitchen in the cottage.

What made the week so fantastic was the friendly, attentive care that our hosts extended to our family. Diane was always available to help with anything we needed from extra groceries to a trip to the "blue hole in the ocean" at Conch Sound. Since we did not rent a car for the week, her help in these areas was incalculable. Captain Rodney provided excellent guide service for several fishing trips to Joulters Cay. Both Diane and Rodney were full of interesting stories about Andros and its fascinating history and culture. In addition to our adventures with them, we found plenty to do within walking distance of Knoll's Landing, including snorkeling in the bay, swimming at Money Point, birding in the estuary, and exploring the beach and nearby ponds. After a week, we felt like family. We highly recommend Knoll's Landing for serious flyfishers and, especially, for those who want to bring along non-fishing members of the family. It was a perfect choice for us!

Owner's Response: This Family was a delight. The Children were so sweet & had so much fun on the beach and in the water. They swam in an Ocean Blue Hole just off shore and saw so many beautiful fish, just couldn't believe it to be so exciting. Their grandson catch his first Bonefish with his grand-dad, what a thrill. The Lady's did a lot of Bird watching with the children over 45 different species in and around our place. We Loved having them with us and hope to see they back again.
Our very best regards to a wonderful Family.

KNOLL'S LANDING

Knoll's Landing
  • 4 of 5
Correction: The flight was $300 one way for FIVE of us, or $60 each, from Nassau Airport to the airport on North Andros for our stay on North Andros Island. Sea kayaks, enough to fit three people, are also available at Knolls's Landing, as are two adult and one child's bicycle. When the weather allows, which is most of the time, Rodney provides bonefishing guide services. His boat is on-site. Diane arranged the flights and taxi. She knows the the best restaurants and sights. We even got discounts because of her presence!

TOTAL SECLUSION IN PARADISE (WITH WIFI)!

  • 4 of 5
My family of five (parents, grandparents, grandson) just returned from a 5-night stay in the cottage just after Christmas 2010. Diane's beautiful property is right on the beach. It is located on a long, rutted dirt road, 10 miles from the nearest settlement. The cottage is nicely furnished and decorated with a nautical theme. We are not bonefishermen (and it was too windy during our stay to even try), but we found plenty of activities to keep us occupied: walks on the beach, a long bike ride to Nichols Town, snorkeling, book reading, scuba diving at Forfar Field Station (C-card or prior resort course required).

Diane is a fantastic host. She and Rodney live in the house between the rental units. She is almost always accessible and she will do her best to make your stay enjoyable. She will arrange the flights from Nassau for you ($300 each way), as well as the taxi from the airport to/from her home ($40). She gave us a local cell phone to use during our stay. She also gave us a wonderful tour of North Andros in her minivan one afternoon. She has lived on the island for over 20 years. She will recommend things to do and places to go.

Helpful Notes: You should read Frommers' online description of Andros before your book, so you know what to expect. Andros is authentic Bahamas, which means it is underdeveloped. You should expect to spend most of your time relaxing in and out of the water. The property is very secluded. If you want to snorkel elsewhere, go diving, or even eat at a local restaurant, you will need to rent a car ($80/day for a car in average condition). Diane will arrange the rental car for you. Gas is $5/gallon. The "bedrooms" in the cottage are really sleeping alcoves. If your family desires more privacy, consider renting the studio and upstairs apartment instead. Water is supplied from a cistern. Hurricanes ruined the underground well years ago. You will be asked to conserve water. The kitchen is very well supplied. There are several grocery stores on the island. Expect to pay at least 75% more than you would in the States. Liquor and non-US wine, however, are inexpensive on island. We filled a suitcase with dry/canned goods, cheese, salami, and frozen meats. We only purchased milk, yogurt, eggs, and fresh fruits/vegetables on the island. The cottage has WiFi, an old TV, and a DVD player. Diane has one satellite receiver, so you watch what she watches. The cottage has a small, but well-stocked library.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

  • 2 of 5
We have just returned from 4 days in the upstairs apartment at this resort.

It was impossible to stay in the apartment between the hours of 2-7pm because of the intense heat, due to the inability of the air conditioner to cope with the lack of insulation in the roof.
This, combined with the request to take 'one, one minute shower per day, the hard pillows and no change of toweld made our stay far from satisfactory

BONES AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
This was my 3rd time at Knoll's Landing, and it won't be my last. I have fished several Bahamian islands, and for the bonefish and ambiance, Knoll's Landing is tops. Rodney, the head guide, lives on the premises and his beautifully maintained skiff is moored right off the beach. No long car rides trailering the boat to the water. You're out the door, on board, and on fish fast. Rodney really knows his stuff, and loves being out there. He's a great guy, very patient, and has unbelieveable vision. I've watched him spot schooling bones (not tailing or mudding) at 300 yards. No exaggeration. Diane, the owner, is a kind and wonderful host. She's always available, and wants your stay to be perfect. She's a wealth of local info and has spent most of her life on the water. Her place is beautiful and relaxing. My kids and wife love exploring the beach and snorkeling offshore. Diane and Rodney have become dear friends and I can't wait to go back. A fantastic place.
