Peacefulness, privacy, private access to beach and harbour dock, great sailing, body surfing, fishing, diving and swimming.
This is a perfect get away on a low key island in a beautiful natural setting. Nothing fancy but what a relief! Like living on a sailboat. You provide your own entertainment, meals and activities. Can be very romantic! Perfect for a couple, or two couples, if close friends. Basic amenities but the washer dryer were an added bonus. Can be totally alone if desired, but we were fortunate to have friends on the island with whom to share occasional meals and evenings. We were lucky to meet Matthew who also made the visit memorable with his obvious love and devotion to the island and his beautiful property. The last supper of fresh grouper was superb and will stay with us until the next visit to this special place. Thank you
We greatly enjoyed our stay. We arrived via the ferry directly to the dock in eastern harbor. We were greeted and helped with our bags. The cottage was well provisioned per our request and the surroundings landscape was beautiful foliage. Easy walking trails or golf cart path to wander on to settlement, a short hike or straight out for an ocean swim. It is our go-to place to relax and recharge .
I have been on Man O' War several times but have never stayed the night. It's a very quiet place. You can get away from all of the craziness going on around the world. I have 2 boys, 12 and 8, and when they ask what are we going to do on the island? I said nothing! You get one week of just total relaxation. You can swim in the ocean, you can snorkel or just chill on the beach. You can explore the island by foot or golf cart. there are no distractions, no traffic to deal with, no stress. It is a great place to forget about everything and just relax.
I had planned on staying in this cottage earlier this year but had some family issues and could not go. I thought for sure that I would lose some percentage of what I had paid. And I was fine with that. When i emailed Mathew to let him know the situation, he said no problem. Just pick another week. No extra charge, no rebooking fee, nothing. I was astonished as we had to cancel only a few days before the trip.
Needless to say, I have rebooked our trip. This boys are excited about going (again). I wanted to go ahead and write this review, even though I haven't stayed there yet, to just say thanks to Matthew for being so understanding and accommodating. I will update this review once we stay in the cottage and let everyone know what it is like.
Wow! Where to begin? First of all the Bahamas are beautiful (my first time there) and pristine, with Mathew's beach being one of the best examples! The view from his cottage is unreal! Exqusite landscaping, lush and tropical leads to a breath taking beach with awesome snorkling! The sound of the surf gently puts you to sleep and relaxes you all day!! Then there is the Island itself, it is beautiful and friendly! Driving the golf cart along the narrow streets was just a blast! We ate at several great resturants and enjoyed the local favorites, cinnamon rolls and farm fresh eggs! But hands down the best part of the trip was Mathew himself! We rented a boat, (which we moored at his morage) and at his advice visited the most spectacular sights,. He told us the best of everything, where to snorkle where to have cocktails where to swim where to just hang ect...his knowledge of the whole Bahamas was priceless! Bonus, no mosquitos!!
My wife and I recently spent a month in the Atlantic Cottage. It was a very private setting in a tropical paradise of gardens. Man-O-War is not an island for everyone. It is off the beaten path where life is simpler and less complicated. You need to be prepared to entertain yourself with pass-times that do not involve TV, radio or newspapers. The cottage does have wifi and a telephone. All these comments aside, we had a magical time on the island, making new friends and exploring the island. While the owners were away from the island during our stay, Matthew and the care takers were available by phone or email. The cottage is very clean. Often we were the only people on the beach. The cottage is also very close to the Eastern Harbour which is interesting to watch, and is a good swimming pool. The property also has a deep water dock. The caretakers thoughtfully picked us up and dropped us off at the ferry dock on our arrival and departure. You know you are going to be off the beaten path when you take a big plane, a little plane and a boat to get there. Although the cottage has two bedrooms with queen beds, it might be close quarters for four adults for any length of time. It is perfect for a couple. Absolutely 5 Stars.
I just finished a two week stay at Atlantic Cottage on MOW. From the caretaker picking me up at the ferry and taking me for a grocery run to my departure it was a wonderful place to rest and relax . The ocean is about 150 yards off in a nice view from a bedroom and deck. A short walk and you are on a really nice sand beach that goes about a quarter mile and it is very lightly used. The water was wonderful too. A very simple place that offered me the opportunity to rest and recuperate from a hip replacement(8 weeks) and to get back my strength. The island is a nice place to walk around and meet folks -both islanders and american homeowners. Its not a resort with a lot of noise though that is in fairly close reach in Hopetown. Its a place where one can get off and relax and the only traffic is the occasional golf cart. And the owners are nice too but you have your privacy.
