ON THE ROCKS - IDYLLIC COTTAGE - OVERLOOKING THE SEA OF ABACO WITH A BOAT DOCK

Marsh Harbour Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

In an idyllic location on the impressive and beautiful peninsula of The Eastern Shore and overlooking the Sea of Abaco and Sugar Loaf Cay. The closest thing to being on an island without the need for a boat!

'On the Rocks' is just two miles from the town of Marsh Harbour and the ferry to Guana Cay and within walking distance to the HopeTown and Man of War ferries. The town has a good selection of shops, supermarkets and medical facilities all staffed by friendly and helpful people. Car and Boat Rentals are available locally and there is a good taxi service to and from the International Airport just 20 minutes away. Golf is available at Treasure Cay and Winding Bay and divers are serviced by two well established Dive Shops in the town.

The cottage is a well equipped, cool and comfortable home. One can walk, run and swim in complete safety along Eastern Shore whilst those not so energetically inclined can read and lie in the sun and relax on the large deck. An ideal haven for painters or writers who feel like a change of workplace. Those interested in bird watching (the feathered variety that is) can attempt to see the Abaco Parrots on forays into the surrounding countryside. The view of sunrise and sunset from the deck is spectacular and the constant activity of the passing boats by day or sitting under the stars at night means there is always something to capture one's imagination.

Boat Rental available from (website hidden) and others. Car Rentals http://www.bahamas.com/vendor/sea-star-rentals

We lived in Abaco from 2005 to 2007 and built the cottage at that time. We love the beauty of Abaco with all its opportunities for boating and relaxing and the feeling of time standing still.

Christopher purchased this cottage in 2007

We built the cottage because we fell in love with the location and wanted a home with the comfort of modern living.

The cottage is beautifully located looking out over the Sea of Abaco and Sugar Loaf Cay. It is ideal for swimming and snorkeling and very safe.

All the amenities are close by. The town with shops, restaurants and medical facilities is just 2 miles away and only 7 miles from the International Airport. When the sea is rough there is no need to get on a ferry to do anything as everything is on the mainland. When the sun shines the ferries to neighbouring Cays are only a mile down the road.

Directions from Marsh Harbour International Airport to

“On the Rocks” Eastern Shores, Marsh Harbour, Abaco

The airport is currently in a bit of a mess as a new terminal is being built and the roads are not finished. If you arrive at the International section, which is very small, you will come through Immigration collect your bags, pass through Customs and head out of the door. If arriving at the Domestic section you exit the apron to the right of the terminal and wait for your bags to be delivered to the gate, very informal.

If getting a taxi the normal rate from the airport to the cottage is $25.

If you are hiring a car from Sea Star Rentals their office is nearby to the right. When you come out of the International section you will head to the right past the entrance to the Domestic section bear in mind that it is very small. You will see the new terminal almost finished over to the left. You will cross a road heading right and you will see cars parked on grass and a wooden building up on stilts. You go upstairs to the office.

It is best to ask how to exit the airport because the roads are changing with the construction.

Travel along a dual carriageway (road in very bad condition) and reach a roundabout in approximately a quarter of a mile. Roundabout has large model parrot in the middle.

Take first exit (not the road under construction) left heading towards town on Great Abaco Highway, passing Abaco Neem and Pine Woods Nursery on your right.

Travel straight on for about 2 miles. The road name changes to Dan Mackey Boulevard at junction with a Texaco Gas Station on the left. Proceed straight on until you reach the one and only working traffic light in Marsh Harbour, less than a mile. Turn right onto Queen Elizabeth Highway. The road proceeds about half a mile and at Mermaid Plaza bears round to the left to a T Junction, looking out over the harbour. (Be careful roads not in good condition). Turn right onto Bay Street. Proceed along Bay Street and in about a mile you will pass Albury’s Ferry Terminal on your right after which you will enter Eastern Shore, an unmade up road. “On the Rocks” is approximately three quarters of a mile down the road on the left hand side. It is the last house before a gate across the road, grey single story with green shutters.

It is preferable if you reverse into the parking space on the town side of the cottage, left hand side when looking at it. Please put rope across entrance when not in use for parking to avoid being used for unauthorised turning by public traffic.
