Cottage is located on a quiet beach and just a five minute boat ride from Big Major's Cay (Pig Island), home of the world famous swimming pigs. A golf cart rental is highly recommended to move around the island.

Best location on the island

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean house on pirate beach. It was a great place to launch our daily adventures or just hang out on a quite safe for kids beach. We will be back.

Best vacation spot ever, especially if you value your privacy

  • 5 of 5

I really don’t want to write this review, as I want to keep this gem to ourselves, and ensure we are able to book it on our next trip to the family islands!

Our family of 4 (2 boys aged 12 and 11) arrived at Staniel Cay, and were met at the airport. Sophia and Don had arranged a golf cart, so all we needed to do was hop on and head to our island paradise. Our cottage was perfect, and the pictures don’t do it justice. Pirate beach was literally 20 steps away.

We are quite self sufficient, so didn’t have a lot of interaction with Sophia and Don. Having said this, they were fantastic in all dealings.

We can hardly wait to go back!

Mike, Beth, John and Henry

Most beautiful views!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough how amazing our trip to Staniel Cay was!! This house was everything (and more) we were looking for! Beautiful views, seclusion, outdoor living, etc!! I felt like a VIP the entire time here! I loved pirate beach adjacent to the house and spend lots of time there! At times it seemed like my very own private beach! Sophia was the best host ever! Addressing all of my questions with very quick responses. She secured our golf cart rental and boat rental! We spent 1/2 day boating to Big Major Cay, "Pig Island ", Thunderball Grotto and the other nearby islands! Hanging out at the yacht club was lots of fun as well!!! Pig Island was a bucket list of mine and worth the entire trip!! I would recommend renting this house as it was the best location and had the most private views!! Lindsey, Sean and Dreko were extremely helpful!!

Wonderful relaxing seaside cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This seaside cottage is absolutely wonderful! The extended deck situated above the ocean is a great place to relax and enjoy the view from sunrise to sunset. This rental house is really a home away from home - beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, equipped with all modern appliances(great washer and dryer!), nice linens and towels(including beach towels) and plush cushioned lounges on the deck as well as deck chairs that fit under to eaves perfectly when it rains(and it did a couple of mornings).

Love the conch shells on the wrap around deck and landscaping overall. And the private gated walkway to the adjacent beach is terrific!

Don was a great host and sweet Christine was available to answer any questions.

We will most definitely rent this cottage again! Simply the best!
