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.

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.
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.
