Overview

Great Guana Cay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beachwatch is a spacious 3 Bedroom 2 Bath oceanfront home directly on the best section of Guana Cay’s famous 5 mile beach. It is situated on a large 1 acre lot at the northwest corner of the Guana settlement, within easy walking distance of Nippers, Grabbers, the ferry dock, grocery store, and the liquor store. We have all the amenities of the other three bedroom oceanfront homes with a better location, and the best beach.

For those not familiar with Guana Cay, it is a barrier island located off of the main island of Abaco in the northeast Bahamas. It is accessed via a 35 minute ferry ride from Marsh Harbor, the third largest city in the Bahamas. Guana is a quiet, out of the way island with a fabulous 5 mile long white sand beach. It does have some nightlife in the form of three beachfront bars/restaurants, the most famous of which is Nippers. If you are looking for casinos, water parks, jets skis, etc, Guana is not for you. If you want quiet, relaxed, secluded beach time and great snorkeling or diving, Guana is for you.

For those familiar with Guana Cay, all you need to know is that Beachwatch is located on the beach about ¼ mile northwest of Nippers.

From the deck on top of the house, one can see far out into the Atlantic Ocean to the northeast, and all the way across the Sea of Abaco to Marsh Harbor to the southwest.

On the ocean side of the house, there is a large sundeck for relaxing and an outdoor table that seats 8 people. A walkway leads down to the white sugar sand beach, with a reef offshore a few hundred feet that offers excellent snorkeling.

The house is fully equipped with a gourmet kitchen, dishwasher, front loading washer/dryer, huge gas grill, full AC, ceiling fans, local and US telephone, free DSL internet, etc.

Beachwatch has all the amenities that you would expect in a deluxe rental, including a 26 KW auto start generator for the power outages that the Abacos are famous for.

Once you stay at Beachwatch, we think that you will agree that it is the best oceanfront rental value on Guana Cay

About Clark Lagow

This property is owned by Guana Batik, Ltd.

Clark Lagow purchased this house in 2004

Why Clark Lagow chose Great Guana Cay

The Abacos are only 165 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida. So getting there is fairly easy compared to locations further south such as the Virgin Islands. Until recently, it was occupied mostly by British Loyalists, who practiced fishing and boat building. The island is very laid back and friendly.

What makes this house unique

Well, first there is the great beach in front of the house. Just sunbathing on the beach reading your favorite book is very enjoyable. Then there is a nice snorkeling reef between Beachwatch and Nippers. Dive Guana will take you to some very nice dive sites in the general vicinity. If you like to sail, the Sea of Abaco is a nice place to do so, and sailboat rentals are available in Marsh Harbor. You can also rent a powerboat at Dive Guana and explore the whole Sea of Abaco (Man O War, Elbow Cay, etc.) on your own.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love it here! The lookout is really cool. My favorite thing was swiming with a 5 foot ray. My favorite meal was coconut shrimp at Nippers.



Thanks for the stay!



We will be back!

We had a great time at Beachwatch! The rooms were very large and accommodating for our group. It was fun to stargaze on top of the house. The yard is spacious and full of beautiful flowers. Our caretaker was available whenever we needed anything and although you had to walk across the yard to get to the beach, I loved the seclusion of it! You could drive your golf cart right up to the beach if you needed to! The price was right and everything we could ever need. The owner answered all of our questions ahead of time and was very helpful with additional information.

Owner's Response: I am glad you and your guests had a great time. One of the things we should probably emphasize more is how Spacious the house is. The two smaller bedrooms are 168 square feet, and the master is larger. Most guest bedrooms in rental homes on Guana Cay are less that 2/3 that size. The living room and kitchen are also very spacious.
The Caretaker lives next door, so she is usually available for help or questions.

Great location for a beautful secluded beach, snorkeling and diving.

There is a beautiful reef for snorkeling just off the beach. The beach is very nice and very private. Also, just a short walk down the beach is Nippers, which is probably the most popular bar and grill on the island. Guana Cay only has a few restaurants and one grocery store, so do some grocery shopping in Marsh Harbor before catching the ferry to Guana Cay. You can also order groceries with the ferry company for a 25% fee. This is worth it based on the cost of food on Guana Cay. Beachwatch has a full kitchen and gas grill for cooking. You can also rent your own boat and go island hopping, but just be careful of shallow waters and reefs. We bent our boats rudder when we hit a shallow reef. I highly recommend Dive Guana on the island for dive trips, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals.

Owner's Response: Greg's description of the house location and beach are spot on. We think it is pretty hard to beat on Guana Cay.
Dive Guana is definitely the place to go for snorkeling, scuba diving, and boat rentals. If you go during a busy time, it is wise to make reservations in advance. They have a trip to Hopetown once a week that offers snorkeling on the way, and a tour of the lighthouse in Hopetown. They also rent bicycles.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Beach Watch for 7 days, early August. I cannot say enough about the home. It is perfectly situated on the ocean side of Guana and within walking distance of everything except Baker's Bay (if that is your sort of thing). The house is well acquainted with everything you could possibly need while on vacation. The house is surrounded by lush greens and landscaping. I only wish I could get my st. aug to look as pretty. We went to the widows walk and were treated to skies so beautiful and full of shooting stars. Our caretaker was fantastic and we did rent a golf cart from Donnas strictly for the purpose of loading and unloading boat, luggage, etc. The cart had a low tire so we switched it out late one evening nid week and the next day, someone came to the house and filled up the new cart with gas. Having been to Abaco many times, having a house with a generator was not really a priority for me, however, IT WAS A REAL PLUS as we did have several short, scheduled power outages. Usually during the day while we were out boating. Over all excellent house and vacation! Thank you Clark and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks Chelise. This is the kind of experience that we hope everyone has at Beachwatch, and almost all do. As she mentioned, power outages are still frequent in the Abacos, and our auto start generator only takes about 10 seconds to take over and run the whole house, including A/C units. Most of our clients do rent golf carts, but one is not really necessary given the close proximity of Beachwatch to local stores and attractions.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ruskin, we are glad you had a great time.

Like the realtors say it is all about location, and Beachwatch has that. You can walk to almost everything you need to go to, as it is located in the Settlement.
