This magical Island is also called the bone fishing capital of the world.
Over fifty species of orchards wild boar, iguanas and rare birds make this island their home.
Despite the fact this is the largest Island in the Bahamas it is the least discovered. Andros is called the 'sleeping giant'. It takes you away from the city of Nassau casinoes and traffic. It boasts deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, untouched pine forests and a number of blue holes. It is also the home of the world famous Androsia, a type of bright color clothing. The Average temperature year-round is 80F.

This property is quiet, secluded and separates you away from the demands of every day life. While at this property, you can loose track of time. When I stay at this property, the time crawls. The relaxing atmosphere of the cool sea breeze from the ocean rejuvenates.
This is unit was originally built to be used as a holiday getaway. But we have decided to rent the unit out, so others can share and enjoy the beauty of the quiet and seclusion of the property, the clear waters and the beautiful beach.
Dear Trevor, Stephen and I want to thank you for a wonderful vacation in Andros. We loved the cottage, it is clean and cozy and we feel so fortunate to have been able to spend 2 weeks right on the beach, footsteps away from the beautiful ocean. We really appreciated the use of the kyak and the bicycles and the fishing equipment.
Please communicate our thanks and appreciation to Princess and Mario for all their attentions.
We hope we will be able to return in the future!
My stay at Treasures of Andros was great! I spent 16 days days in this beautiful location in the Fresh Creek area.There are 3 cottages all right next to the water so everyday and night you can hear the waves right up to the porch area. Especially at night, siting outside on the deck overlooking the Atlantic was memorable. Also get up early and check out the sunrise.
I stayed in the 2 bedroom but I did see the other two cottages also. All were well equipped ( good size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, stove , pots and pans, dishes) with everything you need to eat every meal at home. But there is a nice restaurant just a few steps away that has good food and bar.
Washer and dryer were provided also.
Internet and Cable TV were fine. I did not rent a car but you can through Trevor who makes sure your visit is comfortable. If needed Mario will take care of any problems or concerns you might need.
The beach is super and I spent many hours walking the area. It is truly a relaxing and sress free time. I would go back , but rent a car the next time as basic grocery supplies/ liquor store are a good walking distance away.
Also I need to say how nice the Bahama people are to everyone. People always wave, say hello etc. You feel like you are truly appreciated to visit Andros. I have never been called SIR so many time in my entire life. Wonderful trip! Writing this makes me want to return right now!
We stayed for about 10 days and the cottage was clean and comfortable. You see the surf right from the livingroom door, and the cluster of cottages nearby are not so crowded that you feel surrounded, but not so empty that you feel abandoned. We loved living right off the beach, feeling the ebb and flow of the tides and the weather. The first few days the sea was calm and *v*e*r*y buggy! But then, the wind kicked up, the bugs disappeared.
We had a large screen TV with cable, WIFI, comfortable sectional couch, air conditioning in the bedrooms and our own washer/dryer. There was no housekeeping service, blender, or BBQ grill. The kitchen was very barebones basic, which was fine with us, there was a coffee maker, gas stove, microwave and an electric can opener. We rented the truck which came with the house that got us around very well in the terrain.
We actually did go crabbing and Mario very kindly supplied us with a crab bin to use for the fattening up period before we made crab-and-dough with them, which meant that we had crab "pets" for a week. The dogs were a great team going up and own the beach doing security, and never entered the house unless invited.
We loved the cottage, it was perfect for us. It is about a 5 minute dive from Small Hope Bay Lodge where we did a lot of diving. There was some snorkeling a bit from this cottage, in sporadic clumps of coral. It's about a half an hour's drive to Captain Bill's Blue Hole and also Rainbow Blue Hole Trail -- great to take a dip on hot days when the sea is unpleasantly stormy.
Finding groceries was a challenge for us, as we are programmed to look for a big supermarket -- like it or not here on Andros you can't go to one place to buy everything you need. But you get to know people in the process and it all adds to the experience. FYI Mabel's grocery gets fresh supplies (like vegetables) on Fridays, try there after 1pm. Also, plan on going to the ATM at the bank rather than trying to cash a check there. And gas is currently about $6 a gallon.
Inside the cottage, a local cellphone is supplied to make local calls, along with some local phone numbers. There are also detailed maps of the area showing local restuarants and stores. A new restaurant and several cottages were building built during our visit, which are much finer. But for me, this was a great buy!
We stayed in the older two bedroom cottage, attached to the one bedroom. We got a late start due to snow storms in Boston! Our cottage could use some updating, but despite that we were comfortable. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. Mario and Princess responded quickly to our requests and are very pleasant and helpful, as are all the local people we met. We had a clunker car which I think is needed to explore. Will not repeat the information others have shared, there's lots to see, but you have to travel. The roads have lots of pot holes, but you get used to it and end up driving like the locals(or I did)!! We brought some of our own food and condiments and ate out at Hank's and The Conch Salad takeout and Conch burger place next door. DIY bone fishing is fantastic, Tommy Kee took my husband out and he had a great day. The weather was not ideal, cool, very windy from NW/N/E, so there was no snorkeling which bummed me out and too windy to really kayak near the coast. You can walk the beach forever at low tide and fish off the beach or the new long dock next door. The separate newer two bedroom cottage was the best from my perspective and the man living in the "Pink two story" house next door is building 3 new villas and a restaurant on that road. It looks like development is picking up and tourism as well. The bugs definitely bite, deet worked for me, that's what I had. Others have suggested Skin so Soft or a daily antihistamine. Our neighbors were very nice and helped us to locate very good diy bone fishing places. Andros is an interesting island with lots of character. It is rustic still, but we like that. two grocery stores with adequate supplies. costs are higher for some things, not as bad as the US Virgins. We look forward to going back in a couple of years. The dogs were very nice and protective.
My wife Carol and I spent the entire month of February enjoying ourselves at the treasures of Andros. We went there to fish but, there is so much more. Not only did we catch more fish than we could ever eat but, spent time exploring the island, hunting for shells, enjoying the food and just loving the people. If you need to be relaxed, feel the warm sun and sand under your feet this is the place to spend your time. Mario and his wife princess are wonderful people who love doing their job and fulfilling your every need. Trevor's main concern is to make everyone as happy as they can be and he makes no mistakes doing just that. If you are after bonefish the flats are enormous and contain some of the biggest bonefish I have ever seen. A bonefish special seems to be the definitive fly, also the many patterned shrimp flies work extremely well too. If you are after offshore fish you can call Tanno. He will take you out for multi colored Mahi-Mahi, lightning Wahoo, giant Barracuda and much more. His fees are most reasonable and he loves to laugh. Our room was just what we needed. Plenty of room, neat, and clean. If you are looking for a wonderful time, look no further.

We booked one of the 2 bedroom beach apartments for 6 weeks, the whole booking process was very straight forward and easy, Trevor (the owner) had plenty of patience for the numerous questions sent his way! The apartment was exactly as described and was extremely clean. Trevor’s sister Princess and her husband Mario were on hand for any help and advice, they are lovely people and really do want you to feel comfortable and most of all to enjoy your holiday – customer service like this is extremely thin on the ground these days…
Davis Creek is a wonderful place to stay, it’s out of the main village of Fresh Creek and is quiet and relaxed with amazing beaches right in front of the apartment. We were lucky enough to see dolphins swim by as well as a mah-mahi which was a little off course but a real treat to see from the end of the dock, I could go on and on about the turtles, manta rays, ospreys etc, there is wild life in abundance and it’s just perfect for bird watching, fishing, kayaking, exploring and diving or just lazing with a good book and a cool drink by your hand.
The bonefishing is excellent and so easily available especially for DIY fishermen, if you are fishing for bonefish I would recommend that you get an ‘Explorer Chartbook’ (near Bahamas) as it’s impossible to get decent maps for fishing and the ‘Explorer Chartbook’ details all the low water and tide tables, we also cross reference with ‘google earth’ as it shows all the tracks. If the weather is against you there are some very good guides who will always be able to find you a good sheltered spot for fishing and usually some nice big bonefish. Try Tommy Kee for Fresh Creek and Red Bays and Mark Bastian for fishing the Bights. If you fancy a day out reef fishing for mahi-mahi, wahoo, mackerel, ‘cuda, snapper, grouper etc, try Tanno, you can get hold of him at ‘Mables Store’ just north of Fresh Creek between the liquor store and the bank.
For people wishing to dive, Small Hope Resort is the next bay south of Davis Creek and it’s possible to book some diving/snorkelling with them if they are not fully booked.
Coffee drinkers make sure to take plenty of your favourite coffee with you as there is very little choice in the local stores. Kenya's Bakery in Fresh Creek makes the most delicious coconut bread!
Be sure to pack some good bug repellent, when the sea breeze drops you may need it.
We had a really great holiday and will definitely return to this beautiful rustic little island.
Our family had an excellent time in one of Trevor's beach cottages. We spent 7 days on Andros and were well looked after by Trevor, Princess and Mario. The kitchen and laundry were great and we were happy with our beach front cottage, merely steps from the beautiful water. Cell phone and TV worked great! Snorkeling from the cottage was fine, not coral, but we did see fish, especially at low tide. Things close on Sunday's so make sure you have food and water. The National Park is a short drive from here and you can access two in-land Blue Holes with walkways. Make sure to stop by the Park headquarter at Fresh Creek during the week, the people who work there are wonderful and can point you in the right direction for birding as well. Rainbow Blue Hole is up the road a little way from the cottage by bike or car. It's a short walk in but make sure to wear good walking shoes as the coral path is rough and there is a lot of poison wood around. The Blue Hole is beautiful and worth a swim. If you have a car visit North Andros for the cliff, caves and most importantly, the ocean blue hole at the end of Conch Sound Road in Nicholls Town. We only found out about this after talking to a local restaurant owner. You drive to the end of the road, turn left along the water and park at the end. You walk from the shore about 20 feet at low tide. You can see the blue hole from the beach. Snorkeling around the hole was awesome, the current coming out of the hole is strong, you can see great fish! Try and go at low tide, a must visit spot.
Just up from the cottage is the Taste and See Restaurant owned by Cinderella, who is a great cook. Call ahead as the schedule varies. This is a great spot.
Snorkel trips by boat from Small Hope Bay Resort just south of Davies Creek. The prices as reasonably for a 2 hour trip. We heard that the lunch is good and worth the $18 per person, though we did not go.
The neighbors by the cottages are really great. The neighborhood dogs are sweet and part of the rustic charm. Our son lined-fished from the Fresh Creek dock and caught us dinner one night.
We talked to everyone around town, people are really nice and we got the best information that way.
Conch salad from the yellow shack near the traffic circle in FC was great, so if they are open, stop by. I found out about it from someone living on a sailboat who works at the US Navy Base. We took the Ferry from Nassau, it was a great trip in and I would recommend it. I did take Dramamine.
