It has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms with a fully-furnished gourmet kitchen, stainless steel appliances and filtered water throughout the house. The house offers an open floor plan including an island with bar stools and a dining room table that seats 8, making Beach Dream perfect for family dinners and entertaining. There is a wall of windows in the great room and dining room overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the gorgeous pink/white sand beach that stretches for miles. The beach house is elevated and offers panoramic views from the large front deck of the wrap around porch.
If you like the best, Beach Dream is for you...it's EXTRAORDINARY! Every detail has been beautifully executed, from the porcelain tile floors to 10' ceilings in the bedrooms and the vaulted cypress tongue and groove ceilings in the great room.
It's easy to get Guana Cay...Once you arrive at the Marsh Harbour airport and clear customs, grab a taxi (very easy, they're waiting out front) about 10 minutes to the Guana ferry dock. The ferry runs 5 times a day and it’s a short, 30 minute scenic ride to Guana Cay where you will be met by our caretakers. They will take you by golf cart to Beach Dream and get you settled in to your beachfront paradise!
About Great Guana Cay: Great Guana Cay is a barrier island in the Abaco chain of islands in the Bahamas. The third largest barrier reef sits just off shore, offering unlimited snorkeling and SCUBA diving opportunities. A gorgeous reef is right in front of the house that is perfect for snorkeling and is only a short swim away with an easy beach entry.The island has about 150 residents but there are quite a few second homeowners and visitors. Guana Cay is a beautiful tropical island with gorgeous beaches that are never crowded and the color of the water is unbelievable! It is secluded yet has all the necessities.
There are a few restaurants and bars, as well as a well-stocked grocery store and a liquor store. World-famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill has very good food and they are family-friendly with a swimming pool. It’s always fun and people come from all of the neighboring islands to visit, especially on Sunday afternoon for the weekly pig roast. Grabber's Bar & Grill is fun, too and a great place to watch the beautiful Guana sunset. Beach Dream is within walking distance to all the fun.
Pack your snorkel and dive gear…a spectacular reef is right off the beach in front of the house. Dive Guana offers full service PADI scuba diving and snorkeling trips. Dive Guana also has any gear you need...the water is very clear and the diving is gorgeous. If you would like to rent a boat during your vacation, we highly recommend the boats at Dive Guana. It’s conveniently located on Guana Cay and they rent nice 20ft. to 26ft. boats for fishing, diving or exploring and are reasonably priced.
Bedroom Details: All of the bedrooms have been furnished with high thread-count sheets and bedding. The master bedroom has a king bed with French doors that open onto the front deck and gorgeous colors of the ocean. The master bath has double sinks with a shower tiled to the ceiling. The second master also has a king bed with its own entrance into the bathroom that can also be accessed from the hallway. It has a tub/shower that is also tiled to the ceiling. The half bath is located near the third and fourth bedrooms. The third bedroom has a queen bed and the fourth bedroom has 2 bunk beds and a twin bed. A cot can be used in the bunk room for a 4th person (works better for children). If needed, there is also a portable single-size, 4" thick memory foam, tri-fold mattress. There is also a pack-n-play if you need it for a young child.
Rain water is held in tanks below the house. The water is filtered twice before it enters the house, so it’s tastes excellent out of any faucet. It’s filtered a third time through the icemaker and water dispenser. The rain water has all of the natural minerals and it doesn’t have any chemicals, it’s the only water we use when we're there.
