Your vacation sanctuary offers complete privacy, beautiful white sand beaches, and crystal clear water surrounding the property as it is on a point, creating the most incredible panoramic views, sun rises and ultimate relaxation. The properties are located on 'Nicholl's Town Point' which is on the North East side of Andros Island. The beach heading both north and south of the property are virtually void of any buildings or people however, within walking distance (2 minutes) you will find the local tikki huts serving native dishes, drinks, and small grocery stores. We believe our point holds one of the most incredible views in the Caribbean where the ocean surrounds you on both the north and east side of the property creating a stunning panoramic view. Andros Island is the perfect holiday to bring your flip flops, sunscreen, and a great book. It is also a great place for self made activity such as going for a run on a cool crisp morning and listening to the roosters crow, meandering around the village by foot or bicycle, taking a long walk on the beach and jumping in the ocean to cool off, snorkling along one of the largest barrier reefs in the world, fish all day -deep sea or bone fish and catch dinner for the night.

DIVING & SNORKLING:
AndrosIsland has world renowned diving and fantastic reefs for snorkeling. You can dive during the day, night dives, shark dives, and one-on-oneSpecialty Dives anytime. All of this on the Andros Barrier Reef - the 3rd largest reef system in the world! A day trip by boat can be arranged for a fee plus there is plenty of great snorkeling along the shore.
WILD BOAR HUNTING
Andros has an abundance of wild boar. You can hire a guide to take you hunting for a day through the mangrove swamps! This can be a dangerous trek so please do so at your own risk. This certainly is not for the faint of heart, wild boars are vicious animals and have been known to massacre multiple, pit bull dogs in one trip. Or, on a more mellow approach, you can purchase a side of boar from the hunters and cook it over a nice flame on the BBQ (we prefer this method). If you ask nicely, you might even get to keep a few tusks from their recent catch.
There are over 200 species of birds that inhabit theBahamas--andAndros, with its vast undeveloped land, is home to many of them.
One of our favorite activities and can soon be one of yours….
MILES OF UNTOUCHED BEACHES
Anytime is a good time to stroll along the beach. It's perfectly safe, day or night.
Being an undeveloped island, imagine the interesting finds on a leisurely walk down a mile or two of virgin beach, you can find the most beautiful shells, sea urchins, dried coral in multiple colors, and whatever the last storm blew onto shore….
Basket Weaving A remote village settled by Seminole Indians and Blacks in 1821. The basket-weaving crafts practiced here are detailed and highly advanced.
Red Bays is a very different community on Andros, originally settled by the Seminole Indians from Florida. When theUS was putting Indians in reservations, a group decided not to accept that 'good deal', and hopped in their little boats, high-tailing it toAndrosIsland. The people live in a pretty 'rough' style, and it's fascinating to see.
Andros Blue Holes Below the surface of Andros Island is a complex maze of underwater caves called blue holes. Experienced recreational divers can enter from either the ocean or island entrances and retrace the steps of the famous Jacques Cousteau.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I just returned from a week in Francine and Rob’s Beach House in Nichols Town, North Andros. If you want a peaceful and very private honeymoon, this place is for you. Only twice did we have a local fisherman cast his line from our beach; otherwise it was gloriously private and quiet, even though it is less than 200 yards from town and the local waterfront restaurants. The cottage is an open bedroom, living room and kitchen with large bath (including nice washer and dryer). Everything is first class. The cottage is located about 50 feet from the water, allowing you to lie in bed in the morning and watch the beautiful blue surf roll in. One evening we had Leslie the caretaker prepare dinner of fresh grouper and lobster….wonderful! And every evening we had Stacy provide us massage on the screened porch while the rolling waves put us to sleep. The beach is a beautiful pink-tan color and the water that irresistible Bahamian blue. There is a breaker reef about 1000 feet offshore, and numerous small reefs for snorkeling just a few feet from your beach. If the waves get too high to snorkel while you are there, drive three miles to Conch Sound and snorkel or dive the blue hole, or snorkel for large starfish. This large bay seems calm all the time. Remember that this is on the “out islands” of the Bahamas. There is no one to rake up the seaweed or pick up the plastic that comes in with the tides. That being said, the beaches are still perfect for a beachcomber. If you are in the mood for a week on a beautiful, almost-private lovely swimming beach near the friendliest little town in the Bahamas, then the Beach House is for you.
Welcome to our beach house, owned and operated by Francine Goulet & Rob Birch. We reside in Huntsville Ontario with our 5 year old daughter. We love to travel and we had a dream to one day live in the Caribbean on the beach. Well...we don't live there yet but we truly love to visit often. We hope that our guests will love Andros Island as much as we do. Over the years we have had the opportunity to stay in many of the finest hotels, villas and condos and so we wanted to offer our guests a truly memorable vacation in a beautiful surrounding. It is a pleasure to have you visit one of our favorite “escapes” where we have shared many of our fondest memories.
We chose Andros Island to have a true Island Getaway experience. Something like a Robinson Crusoe movie with secluded beaches, hot sun and soft breezes. Andros Island is also very quick and easy to get to from most areas across North America. We wanted somewhere within a 3 hour flight so we can visit on a regular basis. We also didn't want the hustle and bustle of many busy resort communities. One of the things we really love is the small village we live in, there are tikki hut restaurants and beach side bars to enjoy the music, food and dance of the island.
Andros is the closest island to Nassau which means that to get there, it is an easy, quick 13 minute flight. Francine will assist to coordinate all travel details getting to the island. In addition, our property is one of the few rental properties with fresh, town, double filtered water. Our water is totally drinkable with a good amount of pressure unlike many island properties where they run on wells and cisterns with limited supply and pressure. Also, we are located in Nicholl's Town within a 2 minute walk of eating and drinking establishments.
