Located in Central Abaco, Jacksons Beach is a delightful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage that sleeps 4 adults and up to 8 with the use of pull-out beds. The master bathroom is en suite and the second bathroom available to bedroom 2 and the rest of the cottage.
It has a secluded private beach with warm, shallow water perfect for kayaking, sailing, swimming and snorkeling right off the beach and really safe for young children.
The international airport of Marsh Harbour (MHH) is just 15 minutes away. MHH is serviced by United, Silver, American, Bahamas Air and Delta. Travelers should book all the way through to MHH and NOT go through Nassau (because its unnecessarily expensive) and NOT change airlines in FL (because of the unnecessary hassle of collecting and re-checking and re-paying for bags.)
The cottage has piped fresh water and all kitchen appliances, a washer/drier, linens, pots, pans etc. Each room has efficient, independent self-controlled A/C. There is wireless wifi throughout with a UPS. There is cable TV with the movie package. There is a full house automatic generator in case of power outage. The living room and master bedroom have full wall sliding doors that open up each of these rooms to the balmy breezes that come off the sea.
There is a PRIVATE DOCK immediately adjacent to the BEACH.
The rental comes with 2 adult KAYAKS, 2 children's KAYAKS, a 5 ft DINGHY, a KIDS FLOATIE, a solid PADDLEBOARD, an inflatable PADDLEBOARD a 13 ft SUNFISH SAILBOAT, 2 WINDSURFERS and a 16 FT HOBIE CATAMARAN. There are also Frisbees, baseball gloves and balls, 3 sizes of footballs and 2 hammocks to string between the palm trees. There is plenty of green space for outdoor activities like throwing the football, baseball, soccer, and Frisbee.
Marsh Harbour, only 10 minutes drive away, is a vibrant small town with all Caribbean vacation amenities, great bars, restaurants, marinas, boat rentals etc.
There's plenty to do at, or very near Jacksons Beach. The Abaco Sea is a warm shallow sea protected from the Atlantic by the Cays. This barrier is 120 miles long and one of the longest coral reefs in the world. Excellent diving and snorkeling abound around the Cays. You can wade into the water straight from Jacksons Beach and snorkel around the rocks and sunken environments just offshore.
Deep sea sport fishing lies just 5 miles away where the Bahama Shelf gives way to the Atlantic depths.
The Abaco Marls are internationally known for fly fishing, and the nearest put-in is just 3 miles from Jacksons Beach on the west side of the island.
Jacksons Beach is centrally located on the Island of Abaco. Even though there are plenty of taxis, most visitors rent vehicles for their stay. The trip to the supermarket, ferry terminals with services to the Cays, a night out at any of the many restaurants all require a vehicle. When arriving, if you take a taxi from the airport, tell the Driver you're going to Great Cistern. He/she will drive to the north end of Murphy Town and at the end take a right onto Forest Drive Way, then left (the only left) onto an unnamed road going north parallel to the coastline. The road goes through a narrow cutting in the coral and Jacksons Beach is straight ahead at the bottom of the hill.There is a landline at the cottage to order your taxi.
Marsh Harbour has a huge hardware store and an excellent fully stocked supermarket. There are 4 walk-in clinics in town.
