Cottage direct oceanfront! I was born in North Carolina. Raised in Maryland, where my father relocated for work. At 18 I started heading south & didn't stop until I reached Guanaja, a pristine Caribbean island in the Bay Islands. When I was a child and watched movies on tropical islands or Gilligan's Island, I knew I was meant to be on a tropical island. My son & I have traveled all over the Caribbean & the South Pacific, but Guanaja was the enchanting forgotten island that drew us, as Bali Hai did the sailors in South Pacific! I had this new property built. I wanted a place like the 'old' Caribbean, before commercialization and modern architecture. I now have exactly that, an unspoiled piece of paradise, where all I see from my property is the beauty of the Caribbean & the reef in the near distance. At night all I hear are the gentle Caribbean waves against the reef & the night creatures singing in their own way.

My son & I fell in love with the freedom of the island, the people & the feeling that time just stopped here; no condos, no big hotels to block the ocean view, perfect climate, the tap water is even spring water & I could go on..... I bought property & built on this side of the island, because of the beautiful isolated beach, the serenity of not being able to see anything, but the mountains & the Caribbean. A giant plus for this property; the rentals are the only ones on the island within walking distance of town and beautiful waterfalls. At the other properties the guests must use a boat to get to stores or cafes.
This is the only area of the island where you are close enough to walk to town and the waterfalls. At other rentals you must take a boat to town & to the waterfalls. The only waterfalls on the island are located close to the cottages. Here you have the privacy of your own brand new Caribbean Cottage, but you also have the choice of an all-inclusive vacation with the amenities of a resort- restaurant, kayaking & you don't have to worry about finding tours on your own. If you choose the all-inclusive package, meals are included. We serve a variety of seafood - lobster, shrimp, Caribbean King Crab, cracked conch, conch fritters, crab imperial etc. We also serve fish from local fishermen- snapper, grouper and mahi mahi, etc. We serve 4 course dinners. Examples of home made soups: crab bisque, french onion, chicken noodle, clam chowder, chicken tortilla, etc. We usually also have lamb and filet mignon on the menu. A different desert is served each night including key lime pie, creme brulee, cream puffs with Bavarian cream, flan and a variety of other deserts. Enjoy a BBQ from our hand made clay BBQ or enjoy a bonfire on the beach. We have an abundance of wild life in the ocean & on the property. You would not find as much wild life on a commercialized island. The crime rate is the lowest of any Caribbean island that I know of. You can safely sleep on the screened in porch on a custom made sleeping porch swing! Because of the seclusion of the island, fly fishing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling & diving are amazing. Would you like an all-inclusive romantic honeymoon package you will never forget? It is my goal to see that you have the vacation, scuba diving, fly fishing experience, deep sea fishing or adventure of a lifetime. Many adventures await you or chill and forget the world!
