Beachwatch is a spacious 3 Bedroom 2 Bath oceanfront home directly on the best section of Guana Cay’s famous 5 mile beach. It is situated on a large 1 acre lot at the northwest corner of the Guana settlement, within easy walking distance of Nippers, Grabbers, the ferry dock, grocery store, and the liquor store. We have all the amenities of the other three bedroom oceanfront homes with a better location, and the best beach.
For those not familiar with Guana Cay, it is a barrier island located off of the main island of Abaco in the northeast Bahamas. It is accessed via a 35 minute ferry ride from Marsh Harbor, the third largest city in the Bahamas. Guana is a quiet, out of the way island with a fabulous 5 mile long white sand beach. It does have some nightlife in the form of three beachfront bars/restaurants, the most famous of which is Nippers. If you are looking for casinos, water parks, jets skis, etc, Guana is not for you. If you want quiet, relaxed, secluded beach time and great snorkeling or diving, Guana is for you.
For those familiar with Guana Cay, all you need to know is that Beachwatch is located on the beach about ¼ mile northwest of Nippers.
From the deck on top of the house, one can see far out into the Atlantic Ocean to the northeast, and all the way across the Sea of Abaco to Marsh Harbor to the southwest.
On the ocean side of the house, there is a large sundeck for relaxing and an outdoor table that seats 8 people. A walkway leads down to the white sugar sand beach, with a reef offshore a few hundred feet that offers excellent snorkeling.
The house is fully equipped with a gourmet kitchen, dishwasher, front loading washer/dryer, huge gas grill, full AC, ceiling fans, local and US telephone, free DSL internet, etc.
Beachwatch has all the amenities that you would expect in a deluxe rental, including a 26 KW auto start generator for the power outages that the Abacos are famous for.
Once you stay at Beachwatch, we think that you will agree that it is the best oceanfront rental value on Guana Cay

The Abacos are only 165 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida. So getting there is fairly easy compared to locations further south such as the Virgin Islands. Until recently, it was occupied mostly by British Loyalists, who practiced fishing and boat building. The island is very laid back and friendly. As owners, we have become friends with both the local residents and many of the second home owners on the island.
Well, first there is the great beach in front of the house. Just sunbathing on the beach reading your favorite book is very enjoyable. Then there is a nice snorkeling reef between us and Nippers. We are Scuba divers, and Dive Guana will take you to some very nice dive sites in the general vicinity. If you like to sail, the Sea of Abaco is a nice place to do so, and sailboat rentals are available in Marsh Harbor. You can also rent a powerboat at Dive Guana and explore the whole Sea of Abaco (Man O War, Elbow Cay, etc.) on your own.
