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.
