      A truly unique hidden gem

      5 of 5
      Our family of four, mom, dad and two teen ager boys, spent 6 nights at the Houseboat during our Christmas vacations in 2016. This was our first time in the Bahamas and we wanted to avoid the crowds and flavor an authentic island. We did find what we were looking for as Andros has not been touched by development yet and maintains its original character. We visited only two and half months after a major hurricane, Matthew, struck the Bahamas on October 6th, leaving extensive damage, mostly in the northern part of Andros. Unfortunately, both the Houseboat and Peter and Gabrielle's home and garden sustained significant damage. Peter and Gabrielle made sure that everything was ready for us when we arrived on December 20. As we saw by driving around the island, many resorts were still closed or undergoing repairs. So we are really grateful to Peter and Gabrielle for making all the repairs before our arrival. The Houseboat was wonderful, so spacious and so special. We really liked that all pillows, window curtains and bed blankets were made of the Androsia batik fabric. And there were plenty of the beautiful Red Bays baskets in the house. We went kayaking in the creek almost every day right from the beach near the house. We also enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and stargazing at night from the deck. Our favorite ocean beach was Somerset beach, a very short drive from the house. But swimming directly from the Houseboat's deck was also a favorite. We were not very lucky with fishing, but Peter's outdoor kitchen provided us with some fresh catch of the day cooked to perfection. As others said, the island's stores don't offer many choices. But there are tricks. Be sure to plan your arrival close to a Friday, as the ship with provisions arrives on Fridays and the stores are fully stocked. And if you drive to the north of the island, make a stop at the Mennonite farm right south the San Andros airport: they have a great choice of vegetables and fresh strawberries! However, having reduced choices means less time spent shopping and more time to enjoy nature!

      Cabo Rojo Retreat

      5 of 5
      My wife and I usually visit the Cabo Rojo area once every summer and have stayed in different apartments/houses near several town, this time we decided to try something more relax and found this house boat option. The Pelican house is located in a fisherman village called Puerto Real which is great for us since we are seafood lovers, fresh catch served instead of imported frozen fish. The location of the house boat is also near Boqueron and Combate which are the towns with the most activities. We prefer to stay in Puerto Real since its a quiet town were you can rest at night but also is near the party towns, staying in Boqueron or Combate is sleepless nights because of the loud music and bars environment all night. We can only take so much party a night after we need to rest a little... Our favorite beach (Buye) is only 5 minutes from the house boat which was great for us, second best beach is Playa Sucia about 10 minutes away. Conclusion: we will repeat our stay next summer and will probably bring another couple or two. This house accomodates 6 people (3 couples with a room each). Rental car is a must to get to other towns and beaches unless you want to spend a lot of money in taxi not sure Uber works in this areas...
