Overview

Staniel Cay House Rental Photos and Description

1BR Q- sleeps 2, full bath- large shower area, outside shower, porch all around

Nestled into the island, surrounded by flowering plants and bushes, this charming vacation home has a full screened-in porch just right for reading, lunch or evening cocktails. Hearing the waves on the beach and watching the diminishing evening sunlight, you can fire up the porch grill or bike to one of the restautants... Taste and Sea or Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Some weekends there is a cook-out on the Public Beach to raise money for the school or library. From your comfortable bedroom you view the back garden beyond the deck. The stone walk leads to the sandy beach where the blue-green water beckons. There's a small reef for some snorkeling and a Cassurina tree for shade. For sunbathing or night sky watching, climb the stairs by the outside shower where you get a panoramic island view.

There is plane service from both Ft Lauderdale and Nassau. Staniel Cay lures many vacationers looking for a quiet getaway. Some come in their own plane landing on the 3,000 ft runway that has a large parking ramp. For the adventurous there is a somewhat weekly freight boat out of Nassau. We will be glad to help with recommendations.

Vacation tourism getaway to the unspoiled tropic!

  • 5 of 5

The property was the perfect fit for our vacation goal. No tourism, privacy, somewhere unspoiled with amazing tropic view/feel. House sit's on 2.5 acres with complete privacy! We never heard or saw one person but yet we could ride the bikes provided two blocks to the marina. Walk outside the house onto our own private beach. Sit the Adirondack chairs provided with a fresh brew of coffee for sunset or morning rise. The owner was more keen to making us feel comfortable with such a departure from conventional vacations and information provided than a travel agency! I feel I gained a friend in the owner. At 50, this was the best vacation ever! I would strongly recommend renting a 17ft boat with 85hp to explore the greatness of the local surrounding islands.
