About Scot Kurth
Built by owner Scot Kurth for my family. We enjoyed the privacy, seclusion and tranquility for 15 years. The only reason that we have moved is for school for our two boys. It is, and will always be Home.
Scot Kurth purchased this House in 1999
Why Scot Kurth chose Andros Town
We choose to build here because I grew up on Andros since 1965 and wanted to share it's Natural Environment and beauty with my family. It is a wonderful place to grow up or visit, surrounded by nature and the ocean. With the renewable energy system, I wanted to show what sustainability looks like and how well it works.
What makes this House unique
The tranquility is unsurpassed. You wake in the morning to the sound of the Ocean lapping at the shore and to the birds chirping. You can enjoy knowing that the house operates on a zero carbon footprint.

Fantastic stay, beautiful house - cant wait to visit again
Scot was an absolutely wonderful host who was very quick to answer questions and on top of that everyone in town knows who he is and was very quick to respond to questions. He also has a list of people for you to contact if you need help with anything.
The house itself is a marvel when you consider the location. Sunrises on your own private beach and sunsets over the other side of the water. In addition, Scot keeps the house stocked better than any rental house I've had in the States. The kitchen has everything you will possibly need for a week or longer. The wind/solar power/water catchment system was cool and we did not have one issue over the week. And as off the grid as the house is, Scot has very reliable wifi in the house and Sling TV so that you have some basic tv channels for the week.
If you have never visited the Out Islands before, do take the advice of everyone and buy a decent amount of groceries in Nassau or Ft Lauderdale. We bought a small collapsable cooler from Amazon and brought meats, cold cuts, coffee and other snacks. Saved a lot of money and time. If you do need something in town, it might take several stops to find. The supply ship stops in Fresh Creek on Wednesday and Fridays and even then, you might not find what you want or a place that is supposed to be open might just randomly be closed when you get there.
I would highly recommend renting a car for your trip if you think you will need to leave at all.
Perfect house for a DIY fishing trip. There are miles of world class fishing flats for you to explore right off the beach and you will never see another soul the whole week. The only people we saw on the flats were a couple of women gathering conchs one afternoon. Otherwise, you have square miles of flats to yourself. You could fish for a week - which we did - and barely scratch the surface of all the flats and coves to explore. Saw tons of boenfish, small reef sharks, rays, flatnose, puffers - everything right off the beach. We fished so much right off the beach that even over a week we did not take the kayaks out once to explore anywhere else.
The absolute only thing I could think of at the house would be to add a small a-frame type rod holder for folks that come to fish. But we setup a couple of deck chairs and it worked just fine!
Thank you so much Scot, we cant wait to get back.
This is the perfect house and home base for a DIY bonefishing trip.
Great place. Very secluded. Screened in porch was so nice to have. It is very clean. Wind and solar powered which is an extra bonus!!
A wonderful vacation!
What a fantastic place to stay. Scot's house is beautiful and remote- a perfect escape! We spent the week kayaking, snorkeling, and reading on the deck. The house is wonderfully furnished although there was not any dish soap, which was a challenge for us since we did not rent a car for the week. On that note, if you plan on exploring the island, renting a car is a must, however we thoroughly enjoyed exploring all around the house and did not feel like we needed a car at any point. We did rent a car on the last full day to do a bit of exploring, and on the day we went bonefishing, our guide picked us up and dropped us off at the house. I'd recommend buying all your groceries and beverages in Nassau- while we brought all our dry goods, the grocery store had a very limited selection of fresh fruits and veggies, and sadly the liquor store had been broken into recently and was closed indefinitely for investigation. Scot's house is very well stocked and we enjoyed spending evenings and mornings on the top deck watching the sunrise and sunset- looking forward to a return in the future!
Great house and property. Didn’t get lucky out front on the flats but that’s why it’s called fishing and not catching.
Amazing home, remote and comfortable
This review must start with gratitude. Thank you, Scot, for sharing your home. It is a special home in a special location and was just what we were looking for. Our first trip to the Bahamas and not looking for busy resort glitz - instead, the birders, naturalists, readers, kayakers, tide pool explorers in our family were all so nourished by this week on Andros.
The home is very well cared for. Clearly the owners are taking care to screen their visitors. The "off the grid" is inspirational and very easy to get used to. No impact at all on our creature comforts. Some of us were making good use of the wifi, others the kitchen - well stocked with anything you might need - even sharp knives - which I often find are missing in rental homes. The house is laid out in such a way that everyone can be inside in their own "corners" and can barely hear each other - then big spaces to gather . The porches are amazing - even critter proofed with screening under the floor planks - truly large outdoor areas - private and comfortable.
We had quite a few no see ums the first day or so - then winds picked up and barely any for the rest of the week. The water in the bay near the home is crystal clear and sand is soft beneath the feet.
You are off the beaten path - and we hoped we wouldn't feel we "needed" anything. We had shopped for some meat, veggies, cheese, hummus , bread and crackers on Nassau before we flew to Andros. Once we landed we did not want for a thing! You really could stay on the "compound" for a week and have all you need.
Again, thank you! You answered so many questions ahead of time, Scot, and made sure all was ready for us. We left dreaming of an annual family trip!
