FROM THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE SEA OF ABACO, PARADISE AWAITS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Man-O-War Cay - Sandcastle

2 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 6

Sandcastle is a typical one-floor Bahamian cottage that sleeps 4-6. Perched on a knoll over-looking the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Sea of Abaco on the other, it's views of sunrises and sunsets are unsurpassed. Experience the gentle ocean breezes on the wrap around deck, or enjoy an evening cocktail on the expansive dock as you watch the sunset. Described by a local as 'one of the prettiest spots on the island'.

If you need add'l beds, please visit property #509694, our sister bungalow 'The Whitehouse', which is located on this same property.

A vacation in Man 'O War Cay is easily attained: an hour's flight from West Palm Beach/Miami/Fort Lauderdale to the airport in Marsh Harbour, then a 15 minute taxi ride (taxis are abundant at the airport) through town to the Albury Ferry Dock. 20 minutes on the ferry delivers you to the island of Man 'O War, where our caretakers will greet you and deliver you to your own Bahamiam seaside cottage.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome

About Dorothy White King

Dave grew up spending vacations and summers on nearby Sugarloaf Cay. It was his love of the Bahamas that brought he and Dorothy back to the islands.

Dorothy White King purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dorothy White King chose Man-O-War Cay

Sandcastle, and it's sister cottage 'The White House', sit on a lovely plot of land that encompasses both the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Sea of Abaco on the other. Views from all rooms are stunning, especially sunrises over the Atlantic and sunsets over the Sea of Abaco. The property is far enough away from the settlement to be private and quiet, yet close enough to meet the needs of those residing there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Did I tell you that your dockage is perfect! The guys figured out how to rig the boat up where it is secure at high and low tides in any winds and easy for me to do by myself. It is nice to not have the usual worries of having a boat in the water tied to a dock.

Car: not necessary

Enjoy the simple & calm Bahamian life from your private seaside bungalow in the boat building capital of the Bahamas. This island is small and is comprised of a colorful community of 350 friendly & polite year round residents as well as a small number of foreign resident holiday homes. Only 2.5 miles long & narrow (often less than 100 metros between harbor & beach) this is the perfect place to relax in a very safe, clean & well kept paradise.

Man 'O War Cay is a simple island where the local's life is enviable. There are no cars or bars on the island, but there are two lovely restaurants (one overlooking the harbor) where you are permitted to bring your own alcohol to enjoy. Be sure to visit the small museum, as well as the local marina, boat yard, and Albury's Sail Shop, where seamstresses create everything canvas directly in front of you. Along the waterfront fishermen sell conch shells and freshly caught fish. Rent a boat, a kayak, paddle board - enjoy the truly exceptional diving, snorkeling, and water sports the island's waters have to offer!
