Why Nick Salmon chose Great Guana Cay
For 3 or 4 years we came to the Abacos for holidays and fell in love with it so looked to buy somewhere. We wanted a property right on a sandy beach with ocean views. We were so lucky that we found Sea Coral Cottage on Guana Cay. We spent nearly a year modernizing it and making it into a comfortable well equipped family home. It is a very special piece of paradise which it is great to share with guests who want a hassle free laid back relaxing holiday.
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with Sea Coral Cottage because it is on a quiet sandy beach and has spectacular views over the ocean - we never tire of watching the ocean which continuously changes. Great Guana Cay is very informal and everyone is very friendly. Sea Coral Cottage is a short walk to the key places on the Cay and we hire a golf cart to get around even though it is not essential. There are no cars. Guana is well positioned for visiting many other of the islands. It is easy to hire a boat locally and travel around exploring.

Sea Coral Cottage was great! The property manager could not have been nicer and easy to work with!!! Being on the beach was wonderful and having beach chairs and umbrellas made it perfect. The house was clean and comfortable for three couples. It was a cute cottage on a beautiful beach!
We all enjoyed our stay!
Just GO & stay at Coral Cottage:)
Lovely home, gracious property manager Darvin was waiting for us at the ferry & helped us navigate to the cottage. We live on the beach in Florida; though our sand is sugary, the view here was one of the most breathtaking beach vistas I have ever laid eyes on. Summer weather was a nice break from the Florida heat- cool breezes. The cottage was well appointed and we wished we could stay another week to further explore the Cay. We rented a boat; however, the most gorgeous reefs exist behind the cottage. With good snorkeling gear, you don’t really need a boat unless you want to dive & fish out in deeper waters. With the boat, we explored & had great luck spearfishing & finding conch. (Please check & respect local rules:) If you can book this slice of paradise- do it now!!! We were nervous about summer season- there was no need; it was nicer on Guana than the Panhandle of FL and far less tourists to deal with. To sum it up- we travel extensively and this was by far our best family vacation to date. We’ve visited many islands, Bahamas & beyond, indeed “It’s gooder on Guana!” Great book & game collection as well. Huge thanks to Darvin & owners:)
Perfect Ocean Front Home!
We really enjoyed the house. The access to the beach and the shady gazebo were perfect! Close to everything! Rooms were very comfortable and Darvin was very helpful!
Delighted you enjoyed our little bit of paradise. We love to share our idyllic home with others.
Awesome stay!!! Beautiful location!!
My husband and I throughly enjoyed our time at Sea Coral!! Long walks on the beach, frequent visitors of Nippers for drinks and fun, pan fried Grouper at Sunsetters and last but not least a perfect day of boating and snorkeling with Troy of Dive Guana!!!
A Fabulous Return to Sea Coral Cottage
When you find a place that ticks all of the boxes it's hard not to go back for more. And, that's what we did. Sea Coral Cottage on Great Guana Cay is a very comfortable place with multiple a/c units if needed but a tropical breeze kept the house quite comfortable. A new beach umbrella has been added and is quite large fitting a couple of loungers underneath for a shady read at the beach. Darvey, the caretaker, will take care of any questions and was more than happy to do whatever needed to make the stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. I rented a golf cart from him and it was ready and waiting at the dock upon arrival. House was clean, pantry had basic spices and baking dishes, lots of plastic cups for beachside drinks. And, the grocery store has expanded carrying most anything you could want to cook or grill at the house. Two beds downstairs and the larger bedroom is up with a full bath and also a deck off the master. A new deck on the back of the house has been built with large dining table and loungers for sunning.
The Perfect Beachfront Getaway
My husband and I just returned from our 3rd visit to Great Guana and feel we have found the perfect spot for us. It's a charming 3-bedroom house recently renovated with large windows all around taking advantage of the lovely view and especially the breezes. We have not found that in many houses. We had to use the a/c one night during a rain storm and it worked very well. The upstairs bedroom with balcony is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail taking in that spectacular view.
We enjoyed the large deck overlooking the beach as well as the folding chairs and umbrella for the beach. A covered patio table for dining was nice to have as well. I found everything we needed for the light cooking we did.
You can walk to the grocery store, liquor store as well as Nipper's, Grabbers and the marina side snack shop. We enjoyed having a cart to check out the island but it is not needed. In fact, we felt it was faster to walk to Nipper'sthan it was driving the cart.
TV had several channels to catch a game or movie. We bought the internet package with Bahama WiFi for $35/week and it worked very well. The laundromat had closed on the island so not having a washer and dryer was a small issue for wet towels and clothes. It's not a negative but just needed to know that ahead of time to bring clothes to wash in the sink instead.
We had excellent contact with the owner and also the house keeper, Glenda, went above and beyond for us when our flight delayed us causing us to miss the last ferry to Guana. She's a gem and a testament to the hospitality of the Bahamas!
It's the quintessential beach house. I highly recommend it for couples or families wanting to have a little piece of paradise if only for a week.
Guana Cay is a 30 min ferry ride from Marsh Harbour.
