Marsh Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located on desirable Eastern Shore Penninsula, Water on both sides of the house, 80 foot dock on one side, tie up buoys on the other. Two houses in one: upstairs (separate entrance) has one bedroom, one bath, large kitchen, bar, living room, dining room and deck.

Downstairs(separate entrance) has two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen with bar and deck. Both have flat screen tvs and cable with internet. Rent up or down or both. For your comfort and privacy I only rent to one group at a time.

The water is generally smooth on at least one side of the house for swimming, floating on rafts, etc. There are reefs within snorkeling distance off the front, with lobster, grouper, and other marine life. Fish from the new dock, or just sit and enjoy a drink and the beautiful view!

The house has airconditioning in every room, or open up the windows and doors and enjoy the ocean breeze. And there is plenty of reading, resting and snorkeling, It is an easy walk to the ferry dock if you want to explore Hopetown. It is just a short walk to Boat harbour Marina where you can enjoy poolside dining or relax inside with air conditioning.

The Jib Room, Snappas, Curly tails and other restaurants are just a short drive- maybe two miles. You can walk it and burn off the calories!

If you want to explore, its is walking distance to rent bicycles or an auto or to one of the dive shops for a truly unigue diving experience.

Why The Owner chose Marsh Harbour

We visited Abaco for almost twenty years and were finaly able to purchase a home. The beautiful water, friendly people and laid back enviroment sold us, and it will capture you too.

What makes this house unique

We have a boat (you can rent one from several places) and we enjoy fishing, diving, snorkeling and exploring outer cays like Hopetown, Guana, Turtle Cay and Treasur Cay and to visit Pete's Pub in Little Harbour

Location and views

  • 3 of 5
The Wheelhouse has a terrific location on Eastern Shore. It has water access on both the north and south, with a dock and plenty of parking on the north side. There are two balconies facing the south side. The views and breezes are terrific. The Albury ferry is just down the street but Marsh Harbour and its restaurants are a good mile, or more. Consider a car or taxi. The house is older but clean and has the basics one needs. The upstairs is more conducive to hanging out and has better views. The downstairs really has no common area and has that musty smell typical of places in the tropics that don't get enough sunlight. The owner and manager were very nice but we had a number minor problems, only some of which eventually got resolved.

Water an boats out every window!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our 2 dogs rented Wheelhouse for a wonderful week. The house is very comfortable and the views are spectacular. Between the front and back view there is nonstop boat action, from megayachts, sportfish, runabouts, ferries,barges dinghies. We rented a car which ended up being a good move. We drove to Pete's Pub twice for lunch and sightseeing. It is a bit of a walk to most of the reastaurants and picking up groceries would be difficult. Either a taxi cab, rental car or boat would make the getting around simple. The neighborhood is very quiet and very nice for walking. There was a beach on the back side of the house just a short walk away. Calm enough to float on a raft. We enjoyed pizza nite at Snappas; Jaimes has very reasonably priced meals. There are so many restaurants and shops and bars in Marsh Harbor it makes for lots of great choices. We did cook breakfast and some dinners in and the kitchen is very well stocked. The washer dryer was nice; we used it before we left, although most days we were in bathing suits and tank tops, so only had a small load. The owner was very helpful and easy to deal with. Margo the caretaker had the house all ready for us when we arrived. The deck was our favorite spot. We love looking at water and boats and we had a constant parade of boats on the front and backside of the house. The internet worked perfectly and the tv was nice to catch up on the news first thing in the morning. We look forward to returning to Wheelhouse; it has amazing views and is quite comfortable.

Great Waterfront Location

  • 5 of 5
Not only was this home located in a nice, quiet residential area but the first night when we gazed from our bed at the stars above we knew it was going to be a magical holiday. Cabbies shuttled us in town every day and for 3 days we took advantage of the private dock by renting a boat. The freedom to come and go, whether heading northwest to other islands or traversing Sugar Loaf Creek to head on down the southeast corridor to adventures there, was wonderful. We loved being in the middle of all those destinations.
The Wheelhouse has a great top floor, which we stayed in, but the bottom floor could have been great for friends and family, too. Loved having the washer and dryer downstairs so that we only had to bring half a week's worth of clothes. Wished we could have stayed another week to continue the great adventures but will bring my family back next time.

Charming well appointed home with guaranteed breeze even during the dog days of August. Plenty of parking with the serenety of the Eastern Shore. A short walk to the take-out at the public dock with typical local dishes.

Beautiful views

  • 3 of 5
This is a nice, clean house in a moderate price range. The location is beautiful, in that it has water views on both sides. Within 15-20 minutes walk from town or a 5-10 minute walk to a taxi stand at the ferry dock. This older house is basic, not luxurious. Boats should note the tides carefully and watch for the rock. Owner, Don, was very helpful when contacted directly. Renting a boat for several days was absolutely the way to go; otherwise, the town doesn't offer much in the way of excitement. Loved seeing a dolphin swim by during our dinner at the house! It would have been challenging to rent this house with toddlers, as the upstairs decks have widely spaced posts. The upper floor has much better views.

The Wheelhouse

  • 5 of 5
The four of us (two couples) just returned from a months stay at the "Wheelhouse" on the Eastern Shore of Abaco. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs which gave both couples their own kitchen, decks and privacy. Both upstairs and downstairs would be ideal to rent singularly but what a wonderful way for two couples or a larger group to "be together and be alone". The home is everything as advertised and contains all that's required for a perfect vacation. It is close to Marsh Harbour and the ferries to the Cays and located right on the water. The boys were there to bonefish and caught bonefish to six pounds right in front. Could not have been a better trip, better location or better home.
