Andros Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Villas, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Price is per villa, we have 2 Villas, steps from each other, both directly on the beach. Each villa accommodates 2 guests, has 1 king bed, full size kitchen, living area and bathroom, excellent for 2 couples travelling together.

If you are seeking the ultimate luxury vacation with privacy and romance than look no further, Andros Island is the closest island to Nassau and a short 13 minute flight to the San Andros Airport. We are also one of the only island vacation properties on town water which means you have clean, drinking water with excellent pressure as we have installed a double filtered, pressure tank for your convenience.

Experience your island sanctuary with breathtaking views of the crystal blue ocean and your own private beach house located directly on the beach, (2 villas steps away from each other, 2 guests per unit) beautifully decorated with gorgeous Caribbean furniture, a luxurious king size bed featuring high quality linens, and plush bath towels. With no neighbours in site, yet only steps away from Nicholl's Town, imagine upon your arrival that you are greeted with drinks on ice, smooth island music and some delicious Bahamian dishes prepared especially for you. Sink into complete bliss with an on site professional massage, a cool cocktail with your loved one while sitting in your own private screened in deck or relaxing on a hammock under the majestic Casarinas....your choice.

You can enjoy TV, a stereo system and free wifi that will get you in the vacation mood while keeping you connected.

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.


Each unit is a self contained, clean, open concept design with lots of light. Each unit has its own private bathroom, fully stocked open concept kitchen and living area.


Andros Island is full of activities to do both in and out of the water. Whether it's fishing for trophy-size fish, exploring ancient ruins, bird-watching, hunting for buried treasure, meandering through quaint coastal towns and villages, shopping for batik fabrics or simply soaking up the tropical sunshine,Andros Island has something for everyone.


Bicycles are available for rent. Tour the areas surrounding Nicholl’s Town. We have maps and suggested itineraries. Or bike a few miles south to an inland blue hole for a fresh water swim.


Book a 1/2 or full day. Andros offers world class Bonefishing, reef fishing, deep sea fishing—you can do it all! You can hire a guide for a day or just cast a line off the point right on your own private beach. Andros is known as the 'Bonefish Capital of the World'.


Book an on site massage: a massage therapist will come to you, enjoy a massage on the beach or under a shady tree with a relaxing breeze


Andros Island has world renowned diving and fantastic reefs for snorkelling. You can dive during the day, night dives, shark dives, and one-on-one Speciality Dives any time. 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 snorkelling along the shore.


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 the Bahamas--and Andros, with its vast undeveloped land, is home to many of them.


One of our favourite activities and can soon be one of yours….


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 the US was putting Indians in reservations, a group decided not to accept that 'good deal', and hopped in their little boats, high-tailing it to Andros Island. 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.

About Francine

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.

Francine purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Francine chose Andros

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

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.

North Andros Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was fantastic. We had the beach to ourselves and appreciated the privacy that it provided, relative to the chaos in Nassau. It was very windy during our stay, but in close proximity to various coves so we could always find a calm beach. We were able to catch bonefish at a few of the beaches on our own as well as a few snapper that made great dinner. Zona, who was managing the property was very helpful and knows the island like the back of his hand. Also a great cook if you choose to have a meal prepared. I was very impressed with how helpful and friendly all the locals were. If we have the opportunity, we'd love to return.

Great Fishing experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Beach House 2 and found it spacious, quiet and super clean. The screened in porch was a blessing and we used it every morning watching the sunrise over the ocean. I love to fish and Zona, the property manager, not only is a diving fisherman but he also has a flats boat and taught me fly fishing. My first fish ever caught on a fly rod was a bone fish and wow.... what a fight. I am hooked on bone fishing for ever. My wife spent her days walking through Nicolstown and swimming and getting massages on the beach as Zona has a professional masseuse on staff for guests. Having limitless fresh drinking water was a great surprise as this is not common on the family islands. I have already put a deposit down for another stay in the spring as we can't wait to get back to the quiet peacefulness of Nicolstown Point Andros Island.

Property was wonderful! What a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is once of the nicest places to stay on the entire island. We drove the island from north to south and explored, and there is not much better than this. Zona was a great resource and tour guide for all our activities. This is NOT the place to come to if your seeking night life, city experiences, etc. it is a low key area with incredible snorkeling and diving. It is very safe and the local people are wonderful.

View of a life time!

  • 4 of 5

The Beach House afforded us a nice shaded area with a cool breeze based on the location on the island. It was clean and well-maintained.

Being able to swim and snorkel right from the house was fabulous. We loved being able to sit on the screened porch, lounge on a lounge chair, and swing in the hammock. We also enjoyed the hunt for unique shells along the beach. We found lots to bring home.

Additionally, we enjoyed our boat trip with Zona to bone fish and snorkel in deeper waters. The ocean color was breathtaking and so clear! Zona made us feel safe and answered all our questions. He provided lots of historical information and food options.

Francine was very accessible and responded immediately to any questions we had during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are so happy that you had a wonderful vacation. It is seldom that we receive less than a 5/5 star review so it would be very helpful if you could please email me with some feedback as to how we could have made your experience a 5/5 holiday.

A Real Taste of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When I spotted Francine's beach homes on the Internet, I thought...OMG, this can't be true. But then, I called her and discovered such a warm and genuine lady who also, absolutely loves going to Andros Idland. We stYed in Beach Home 1 for two of the most wonderful weeks ever! The decor isbeautuful, well maintained, right on the beach, and very private. Zona took great carenof us...always there when we needed to get to town or connect us with bone fishing guides. The first night we came in a bit late, so for $15 each, he and his wife prepared a delicious local Bahamian, chicken dinner. Well, we were also greeted with yummy conch fritters. it was so surreal to wake up every morning to the lapping of the waves onto our pristine white beach, read our books as we sipped coffee and felt the breeze through our screened in porch. The snorkeling is quite good; the beach combing is excellent; the proximity to Sharrie's shack for a scrumptious seafood platter is right around the corner. The listing for this little taste of Paradise was very accurate and you can bet your bottom dollar that we will return again some day. Having Stacy come over to give us massages right out by the beach was certainly icing on the cake! I cannot recommend these two private beach homes enough.
