Two secluded and quiet, fully furnished cottages located on a private, 5 acre island, only a 3 minute boat ride from the historic settlement of Hope Town, across the sheltered waters of Abaco Sound. Included in the cottage rental fee is a 17 ft. Boston Whaler or you may upgrade to a 21' Boston Whaler, 20' Albury Bros boat, or a 23' Albury Bros boat. Docking facilities are available at the cay for shallow draft boats.

Each cottage has 1 bedroom/1 bath and sleeps two.(The South Cottage has a Queen-sized bed, the Parrot Perch has a King.) The kitchen opens onto a covered patio in a lush, tropical setting. Living room and bedroom open to catch the tropical breezes and to enjoy indoor-outdoor living. All utilities, linens, kitchen equipment and coolers included. Free laundry service on Friday.

For a short video of the South Cottage and Parrot Cay please see The South Cottage Parrot Cay on YouTube.

Although we love children, Parrot Cay is not suitable for children under 12.

Best vacation spot in the world

These cottages must have invented feng shui. My husband and I booked a week after Christmas for some R&R because we love Hopetown but were surprised to find this little piece of heaven called Parrot Cay just minutes away. The Parrot Perch cottage was perfect for the two of us. Views from every room, cool breezes, lovely nautical feel and outstanding hospitality from the owners and operators. They are there for you but leave you alone if that's what you want. Perfect -- at least for us -- in every way. Caveat, however: you should enjoy boats, snorkeling, cooking for yourself on holiday, quiet time (no TV or streaming movies on the Internet--how lovely!)

Little Piece of Paradise

We just spent a wonderful week at Parrot Perch. The on-line pictures don't do justice to the charm of this traditional Bahamian cottage. It's wide open to nature on all sides -- almost like living on a covered deck. We had been concerned about mosquitoes, but we never even saw one. What we did see in abundance was birds (Banana Birds occasionally would flit through the cottage), butterflies, and "curly tails," a type of small iguana. There was no need for air conditioning.

Parrot Perch has a large patio overlooking the Sea of Abaco where we enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night. When that side of the cottage was too sunny, we sat on the terrace on the east side, surrounded by lush tropical foliage. The place is completely private.

Furnishings are simple and very comfortable, and the cottage was spotlessly clean. When we rent a place, we actually cook, and Parrot Perch's kitchen is well furnished with everything we needed. There are grocery stores in Hope Town, no problem there. For those who want to eat out, restaurants are a short boat ride away.

We chose the 17-ft Boston Whaler as our vehicle. It took us into Hope Town in a couple of minutes, and to beautiful beaches and coral reefs in under half an hour. We didn't have a private dock, but the dock for our Whaler was only 100 yards away. We also swam every day at our private stone beach a few steps down from the cottage.

The owners live on the island (but out of sight!) and could not have been more friendly and helpful.

We will definitely return to this lovely place and recommend it to nature lovers everywhere.

I came to Parrot Cay with concerns about "spartan conditions" and the possibility of insects with no screens on windows--instead I found Paradise. This is the most perfect place I have ever been. No problems whatsoever--1st class accomodations in a natural setting. Incredibly nice people who own/run the place. Legendary. I honestly would not change a thing. I'll be returning here as often as I can for as long as they will have me. Absolutely delightful.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. We got married in Key Largo and were looking for a place for our honeymoon that would be off the beaten path but without lacking in charm or amenities. We fell absolutely in love with the South Cottage and were so sad to leave. It is rich with character but also immaculate and perfect for a get away in paradise. The kitchen and house were very well-equipped and we didn't need a thing aside from food and cocktail fixin's. We also loved the Albury we got with it, and it was perfect for zipping around the Cays and Hope Town was less than 5 minutes away which was great. We come from the PNW so we are sad it would be so hard to come back in the future, but certainly hope to!

We hope that all is well with you and yours. Needless to say, our week with you in March was a highlight in our lives. We LOVED Parrot Cay and South Cottage. We are quickly learning, that the more people we send to you, the less likely it is that we will be able to get the cottages for ourselves!

We were so appreciative of all the new changes in Perch, from the nice, shiny paint and new slip covers on the couch to the new sheets and wonderful reading lamps over our bed! It is always a wonderful experience to walk in to Perch and see the Hibiscus on the tables, look out at the beautiful ocean and just begin to relax! Jenny does such a good job of keeping the cottage nice and clean and seeing that everything is in working order that we can't help but have a great vacation. Thank you all so much! Dave and Phoebe always make our visit special.

Dear Phoebe, Dave, Jeff, Jenny, and Lori,

We and our friends had a grand time on Parrot Cay. Thank you for making sure everything went so well. It is much appreciated. We love Parrot Cay and admire all that you've done to get it where it is today. I often think about what you all must experience living and working in such a beautiful environment each day. Then I remember I can return rather than simply living vicariously. Until the next time, best wishes for the new year.

Phoebe and Dave, thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise with us. We
hope to return...soon and often. We can't think of a guest house that
we have enjoyed as much, and we are very frequent travelers. From the
comfort of the rooms, the classiness of the decor, the books, the
conveniences in the kitchen, the outdoors, the privacy -- lacking
nothing, or so it seemed to us.
