CAPTAINS VIEW NESTLED ON THE BEACH / OPTIONAL BOAT

Cherokee Sound House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

Captains View is a cozy two bedroom beach house overlooking the Southern Bay of Cherokee Sound. The 14ft Boat and outboard is and optional high light . The front porch is definitely the most frequently used area of the home partly because of the view but also because it provides a shady, secluded, breezy spot to relax during your vacation. It is the perfect place to have your morning coffee, read a book in the afternoon, or retire after a long day of deep sea fishing.

The House is situated only a few footsteps away from the Long Dock where all types of activities can take place. There are many flat sand bars to walk on during the low tides; they are great places to find beautiful shells. Early tides bring fish including the allusive 'Bonefish' that room freely along the shallow bars of Southern Bay. 'The Long Dock ' and its uncounted wooden pieces have with stood many Hurricanes with sometimes little reconstruction. This dock is a pillar of the fishing town that once allowed for contact from the outside world .

All the community and its residents, as well as non residents , both old and young, have helped maintain its condition giving all who visit here a pleasent stay . There is loads of history is the Cherokee area so make sure to bring your hiking shoes and max the experience ! There are networks of uncharted paths from several hundred of years ago to be explored . Wooden boats and smacks building was an art done for years on the shore of the inner creek. You can learn more stories about this era by meeting friendly locals of Cherokee and hearing about the history of this place.

Guests have access to Watching Bay beach, on the Oceanside through a private development 'The Reserve at Watching bay '. This is all within walking distance, but the bicycles are great for this, and riding through town, . You can also rent a vehicle in Marsh Harbour beforehand to get to the house and sight see the island wide towns .

The uniqueness of this home is not only what it does have but it doesn’t have. By separating yourself from cable television and land line phones(which we do not have in the home!)you can find other ways to entertain yourselves. However, keep in mind that there is wi-fi internet access available so you can bring your business with you if you insist! We hope you will come enjoy a peaceful vacation with the ones you love at Captains View in Cherokee.

FROM MT EVEREST TO SUN-DRENCHED PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I retired from guiding on Mt Everest 3 days before coming straight to Mr. Russel's beach front home.
Mr. Russell would even send me emails at Everest Base Camp encouraging me that warm days awaited me!
Mr. Russell arranged for a boat rental and it was waiting on the bonefish flats when I arrived - gassed and ready to go!
The house was immaculate and my wife and I could see the pristine ocean right from the bedroom bed.
Mr Russell had bikes ready for us and a grill ready to go also for our fish and lobsters.
I travel all over the world and this home would be my choice to retire and live out my days!
Well, put another way, I reside in Kona, Hawaii on 4 acres near the ocean - and I fully prefer to be in little peaceful Cherokee!

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS RENTAL AND THIS PART OF ABACO WAS SPECTACULAR

  • 5 of 5
Cherokee Sound is a special place and Glenn's home is absolutely perfect. Our family of five had no troubles here as we splashed and played in the sound all week.
The kitchen had everything you'd need and the kayaks and fishing rods were a big bonus. The Long Dock is a great place to hang out by day and watch the stars by night.
The Food Fair in Cherokee is well stocked but load up on staples like beer in Marsh Harbor. Everyone was very nice to us in Cherokee and we received lots of ripe mangoes from the trees of locals.
We took 3 kids 8-13 and they all had a blast. The short hike to the nearby Ocean beach was fun and worthwhile, we felt like Robinson Caruso.
Yes, Pete's is close by and very tasty (saw some dolphins swimming nearby in the harbor there while we were eating) we also made the trip to Marsh Harbor for dinner out a couple times, lots of good choices. We took day trips to a couple cays and they were fantastic for snorkeling and hanging out. If you go somewhere with a pool and restaurant on the beach you're set for the day. Pay attention to ferry schedules and ask about departure times to be sure.
Our favorite times were at the house, hanging out or fishing on the dock, in the sound, on the kayaks or admiring the views at low and high tide from the front porch over coffee or Kaliks.
Glenn is very helpful, responsive and all the descriptions and reviews are accurate. The house was super, we wanted for nothing. I would definitely recommend Captain's View and Cherokee.

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Cherokee was amazing and Glenn's house, with all it's amenities made it spectacular!
Modern, comfortable, everything you could need to enjoy a quiet beautiful beach front vacation.
A rental car is a must!
The little convince store in Cherokee is well supplied. I would suggest taking advantage of the modern, clean supermarket (Maxwells) for your supplies in Marsh Harbor. This is 30 minutes away from Cherokee, but easily accessible as you leave the airport.
The nearest restaurant/pub is Pete's Pub, it is back towards Marsh Harbor about three miles on the paved road then a mile and a half or so down a dirt road, great place! Try the Conk Fritters!
I personally would not bring kids here unless they are content with swimming, fishing, sunning, biking or kayaking. Not much else to do here except relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful water fronts in the Caribbean!
The residents of Cherokee are wonderful.
Highly recommend Captains View! We can not wait to return.
Thank you Glenn!

A QUIET QUAINT PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a relaxing place where I could do some bonefishing and we could get away from it all for our honeymoon. We looked all over VRBO and based on the reviews we settled on the Captain's View. We are so glad we did. We had the best time, the place was very clean and nice, and there was nothing we were missing from our trip. Glenn was very helpful and great to work with. The town of Cherokee is nice and all the people were the friendliest out of anywhere in the Bahamas. The bonefishing was great and I saw tons and hooked up with many while I was there. We had fresh coconuts every day we picked from the trees while we were there and we found multiple legally aged harvestable conch on the flats while we snorkeled. We rented a car which was very nice so that we could run into Marsh Harbour if we needed anything that the local grocer did not have. We also took some ferrys to the surrounding cays to visit Hope Town and Man-O-War. It was the best secluded and relaxed atmosphere we had hoped to find. Don't hesitate to send Glenn an inquiry with anything you might be wondering about the house/town/island, he is very responsive. Very highly recommended and are already saving up to go back!

CUTE BEACH FRONT COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Captains View in Cherokee Sound. The cottage was the perfect size for the us and another couple and had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home. Plus, you can't beat the location right on the water nor the access to the 770 ft long dock right in front to enjoy even more water views!
We flew into Marsh Harbor and rented a car and from there the drive was about 25-30 minutes but the house relatively easy to find and once we were familiar with the area, ventured out up to Treasure Cay by car (1 hour) and to Hope Town/Elbow Cay/ Lubbers Landing by boat which we rented in Marsh Harbor.
Overall it was an easy trip to make and we'd love to go back again!
