The Island: This beautiful haven offers pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, abundant sea life and friendly locals. It is located in the northern end of the Berry islands. There is a large hurricane protected marina, small grocery stores, local restaurants and a paved 5000 ft. airstrip. There are also twice daily flights from Nassau, and charters and shared charters from Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Boat rentals and guides can be arranged. You can also buy fresh seafood and conch salad from the fishermen at the marina. This is an amazing vacation spot whether you want to kick back and relax or have fun in the sun. Truly a special paradise that does not disappoint!

Activities and Dining: On the island you can go shelling on the flats on the south side of the island at low tide. This beautiful beach is known as 'Shell Beach'. It is worth a visit just to see it. You can also explore the caves and abandoned hotel on the north side, just a few minutes from the house. There are a few restaurants on the island that serve delicious Bahamian and International food. At certain times of the year you can partake in local festivals and celebrations: every Friday in late June to mid July is Junkanoo, & the first week in August is Lobsterfest. However, if you just want to relax, read a good book or nurse a tropical drink in paradise, this is the perfect place!

Fishing and Boating: Don't miss a delicious lunch at Flo's Restaurant, finding the Blue Hole on Hoffman Cay and exploring the spectacular surrounding cays. Percy or Joe Darville are excellent fishing guides and can maneuver you through the flats to bonefish or take you deep sea fishing. There is fantastic snorkeling and sport fishing. Please note only Hawaiian slings may be used for spear fishing. You can expect to catch wahoo, snappers, grouper, yellowtail, lobster and conch. There are slips for rent in Great Harbour Cay Marina if you come by boat, or you can rent a boat at Marina from Elron.

Beautiful home on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Renting homes in the Bahamas can be a shot in the dark but this home is everything as advertised. The decorations and amenities are first rate. Few homes if any are so well equipped from Ice makers to wine coolers. We did not see another sole on the beautiful beach for seven straight days....perfect! Karen runs a very smooth operation here and everything went just as planned. We love this location as it is a true getaway and I would recommend it highly.

As good as it gets.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at Sugar Palms. It was our third trip to Great Harbor Caye and by far the best home to rent on the island. Great location, views, amenities, tasteful furnishings, high quality home, and Alex and Karen went out of their way to make everything seamless.

We are reluctant to share our experience at Sugar Palms for fear that it will become too booked for our future use. But it is only fair to say that Sugar Palms deserves its 5 star ratingl

1) Great Harbour Cay and Sugar Palms provided the ideal backdrop for our family's reunion over the holidays.

2) The position of the house on Sugar Beach is incredible. Sunrise, sunset, both spectacular. Views of glowing cruise ships floating on the horizon and a gorgeous sugar white beach littered only by our footprints.

3) The house was tastefully and practically furnished and equipped. The owners having anticipated our every need.

4) Boating excursions to nearby islands, exploring reefs, wrecks, and 5 lb. lobsters!

5) Best memories we will have of this island will be the connections we made with the friendly, caring people there: Elon and Hans at the marina, the people of St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Shelly, Nelson, Kevin W., Tony, "Stinky," Coolie Mae! Thank you for welcoming us into your community.

A very special house on a very special island. *****!

Fantastic get away home!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend staying at this beautiful home with a wonderful ambiance and setting. We had a quick expedition and fishing trip with the guys, and it was so delightful coming back and relaxing in the back deck and watching the waves while having a cocktail. The accommodations were ideal for all us guys. My three sons and brother enjoyed the home and would love a repeat. If you're considering a home to enjoy in the Berry Islands, this home is perfect!
