About Ernie

Dolly and I are both in our 60s. We have been married for 47 years. We live along Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes area of New York State. We travel to Guana as often as time and grandchildren allow.

Ernie purchased this house in 1999

Why Ernie chose Abaco

We went to Guana for the first tme in 1998. We fell in love with island and bought our lot on our first visit. Charles Sands built our home during 1999. We went through 2 hurricanes while building. We first stayed in our home the eve of New Year's 2000. We have been renting our home since 2000 with many returning guests. We hope you enjoy your stay at our home.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy coming to Shorecrest II where we spend time enjoying the ocean from both our upper deck and our porch, working around our home to maintain it, and enjoying the privacy our home offers.

Relaxing beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was what we expected. A very casual beach front cottage. Our family of 4 had a very good time.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us that stayed here at Shorecrest. The home is beautiful and the location and views can't be beat. The caretakers were great help and Ernie was wonderful in giving us all the help we needed in getting settled! You can't ask for a better location as it was very quiet and we practically had the beach to ourselves everyday (other than the sharks that decided to swim by around 5 in the evening every night) But...we were out of the water by then! We were totally happy with this home and want to thank Ernie for allowing us to stay at Shorecrest!

Barefoot Weekend 2012

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing! We loved the privacy and quiet location, yet we were only minutes from the settlement via golf cart. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one could need for preparing meals. The views were absolutely spectacular! Morning coffee on the deck was a real treat! Internet service was great. No problems at all. The outdoor shower was wonderful. Ernie was very easy to work with and answered any questions we had promptly and accurately. Will definitely book this home again for our next visit!

The grocery store on Guana is well stocked. Prices are a little higher than in Marsh Harbor, but good selection. Fresh fish is available at several locations. Just ask any of the locals and they will gladly direct you. Be sure to check out Milo's stand for fresh veggies and fruit grown on the island. Ask about his catch of the day.

We were on Guana for Barefoot weekend at Nippers featuring the legendary Barefoot Man with Sea 'n B. Barefoot played a day show on Friday and a St. Patrick's show on Saturday evening. The weekend was concluded with an AWESOME day concert on Sunday by Sea 'n B. They rocked Nippers!

Be sure to visit Grabbers for some great food and drinks as well as good live music.

Wonderful Family Vacation-- A Trip to Remember!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Shorecrest II was fantastic! Ernie's home was amazing! The kitchen is fully equipped and everything was in great working order. The views from the house were simply breathtaking. Ernie & Dolly had thought of every need we might have during our stay, including having boogie boards for my kids. A family favorite was to watch the sun rise from the deck- just gorgeous. We built sand castles, grilled out, snorkeled, took long walks on the beach and ate way too many conch fritters- we could not have asked for a better vacation. The pictures don't do justice to the home or ocean- it is truly paradise! The logistics of our trip went perfectly. Ernie was so easy to work with in renting the house, and once on the island Troy and Maria made sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend renting Shorecrest II to anyone who wants to spend a week in paradise.

Amazing (out) out island get away

  • 5 of 5

Wanting to avoid the all-inclusive black hole, my wife and I found and booked Shorecrest as a last-minute get away. We were a little nervous about what to expect, as there weren’t many reviews here and it seemed too good to be true. It wasn’t. It was amazing.

The house is beautifully maintained… clean and cozy. It looks better than all the pictures here. It feels private and relaxed, but Nippers and the settlement are only a 10 minute bike ride away. The beach right in front of the house is a bit rocky in spots, but beautiful and comfortably swimmable. And the weather was great, even in February.

Booking with Ernie was a breeze and the on-site assistance of Troy and Maria was great – we were picked up from the ferry and had lots of help and advice figuring out how to settle in.

With the two legs of the flight and the ferry from Marsh Harbour, it’s definitely a bit of a trek if you’re used to a one-flight trip, but well worth it if you appreciate a real community feel and a beautiful landscape. We’ll be back for sure.
