About the property

4 bedrooms, sleeps 9, 2 full baths, 1 half bath, large private out side shower

WELCOME TO RUM PUNCH: “Rum Punch” is located on South Staniel Cay, a 12 minute walk from the Staniel Cay Yacht Club and 3 minute walk from the Iles General Store and dinghy dock which is just south of the airport. Our comfortably furnished 4 bedroom house (sleeps 9) has ceiling fans and AC units in every room with water views and lovely tropical plantings.

RUM PUNCH SECOND FLOOR PLAN: The vaulted ceiling second floor has the master suite with queen bed and full jacuzzis bath, an open living/ dining room and kitchen flanked by east and west screened porches with ceiling fan / lights, south facing and surround decks. The teak-countered kitchen is truly gourmet equipped with dishwasher and all necessary appliances. A webber barbecue is on outside the deck. There is a large desk, bookshelves stocked with good reads and games, VHF marine band radio, stereo system, phone and internet.

RUM PUNCH GROUND FLOOR PLAN: There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor. The south room has 3 twins, the middle has a queen and the north has 2 twins. There is an entry lounge, laundry facility full bath with shower and a half bath. The furnished entry deck looks our at the garden with a spacious private outside shower.

RUM PUNCH CARETAKER: Berkie Rolle is our caretaker and owner of "Isles General Store" / dock just down the street. He rents golf carts, boats and bikes. Burke and Vivian Rolle’s number is 242-355-2007.

RUM PUNCH NOTES: Tap water is made from the town watermaker and we have our own filter (UV and particulate) system. You may shower to your “heart’s content” outside but be sparing with flushing and showering indoors as Bahamian septic systems cannot handle large flows.

RENTING AND TRAVELING: to distant Bahamian out-islands can present certain challenges. Air transfer to small regional carriers and charters, customs / immigration require a bit of patience, planning and advice. What to bring and what to expect and what is available on the cay are issues that as property owners, we strive to inform.

ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED: our home and signed the rental agreement we will have each other’s phone numbers and encourage further communication. If within two weeks of your booking this further conversation results in finding that Staniel Cay is not the proper vacation fit for you we will refund your total rental fee.

WEATHER IN THE BAHAMAS: is of vital interest. If you vacation during the stormy season (August through October) and a named storm interrupts your plans we always refund 100% of the rental and the service fee. If arriving by boat, and delayed by weather, we will work with you on adjusting your dates.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If Guest wishes to cancel his/her reservation, the deposit will be refunded as follows:

If you cancel 90 days prior to the Check-in Date you will receive 100% refund.

If you cancel less than 90 days before arrival, there are absolutely no refunds unless we can re-rent the house for those same dates. In this case you will be charged a $100.00 cancellation fee. Remaining funds will be returned to you.

As for hurricanes, if there is a storm travelling during your intended stay, and the Bahamas goes under a hurricane warning, you will be able to rebook your stay, valid for a full calendar year. If you are here, and the Bahamas goes under a hurricane warning, we will ask you to return home and will refund you only unused nights.

Clean, Airy and Roomy

  • 4 of 5

We had 8 people for 5 nights and found that there was plenty of room for everyone. With 2 screened in decks and one sun deck all were used at one time or another. The outdoor shower was also used a lot, especially after coming back from snorkeling. The provisioning was very good and plenty of ice in the refrigerator. The only problem that we had was that we popped the circuit breaker for the outlet by the garage when we were charging 2 golf carts and we did not have (nor did the caretaker have) the combination the the lock to reset it.

Rum Punch is Practically Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rum Punch 4/2017. Was 5 men celebrating my Dad's 81st B-day. Plenty of room with the 4 bedrooms and 3 baths . Extra beds went unused for our party. Could accomodate many more. The layout is excellent. Porches allow for sunrise and sunset views. Kitchen utensils, appliances, and other amenities are all there. Furniture and furnishings are very nice. Outdoor shower is the way to go!

Good location in the island as well.

The owners are very friendly and easy to deal with. Recommend highly!

Family trip to Staniel

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with more than enough space for my family of 6! The owners were nice and made sure we connected with the caretakers who were very helpful! I suggest renting a golf cart if you plan to spend a lot of time at the Yacht Club.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

In addition to being a lovely house, it is perfectly appointed with all the comforts of home. The rooms were all spacious with cozy beds and a/c units to keep us cool. The living area was spacious and the kitchen had every imaginable gadget and pan for cooking. The porches were screened and breezy too.

The location is close to the few destinations you will want to access: the market, the airport and the yacht club. They are walking distance (15 min to yacht club) but a golf cart is highly recommended (4-5 min on cart.). Rum Punch was wonderful!

Magical Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rum Punch for a weekend in March 2014 and loved it. The house is set up high so you have a beautiful view and can catch the island breeze whichever side it's coming from. It has all the modern conveniences you would expect, including fast Internet for the online junkies out there (one of the people in our group needed to make a conference call on the arrival day and it worked well). We brought our own food along and either cooked in the fully stocked kitchen or used the BBQ outside.

It's a short walk to the closest beach, the airport and to the general store. About 12 or 15 minutes to the yacht club, depending which way you go, if you want to go for drinks or a meal.

We hired a motorboat from the general store to see the swimming pigs and to Thunderball grotto, both were amazing! Then we putted around some other islands for the rest of the day and found deserted beaches to chill on.

The caretakers, Mr and Mrs Rolle were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall a very relaxing time in a stunning environment, I would definitely recommend it
