We stayed on our boat at the marina but hosts Angie and Marty made us feel so welcomed - especially as first-timers at Great Harbour Cay in the Bahamas' Berry Islands. The food (particularly the smashing Sunday... More

My husband and I made this our second Out Island stop after Cat Island, and it was also beautiful. We had unusually rough seas we were told, but we hiked to Shell Beach and witnessed a calmer cove there. We were lucky enough to get the Rooster room that walks out onto the pool--the room is gorgeous and immaculately clean.... More

Reachable by air or by water, this perfectly appointed oceanfront beach house with 3 guest rooms, a large living room with seating throughout, a well-stocked bar and swimming pool, a long stretch of beach with tiki umbrellas and the most gracious...

First of all, we just love your heading - it really makes us feel so special. We are so glad too that you found us. Sometimes people have been here for a few weeks and still do not know about us!! As you say, Great Harbour Cay is reachable from Fort Lauderdale and Nassau by air. If coming by boat,... More

A true hidden gem, but hidden in plain sight on the gorgeous 5 Mile Beach! I was searching for a place to stay in GHC on our boat trip back from Abaco to Miami and read the amazing TripAdvisor reviews. From the very first phone call to Angie, I knew that we were in for a treat. We booked three... More

We traveled from Miami to Great Harbour Cay via jet skis and accidentally came upon the most delightful hotel we have ever had the joy of staying at!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carriearl is your antidote to workaday worries, but is only a 20 minute flight from Nassau, and a hour flight from Miami. From the moment you walk in the door you will feel at home. With one of Dronzi's famous Rum Punches in your hand, you will just want to chill round our beautiful freshwater swimming pool and walk our amazing beach, where the only footprints you will see are your own! Owned by 2 'Brits', Angie and Marty, our British Hospitality is reflected in our attention to detail and wonderful International Cuisine. We have a 'Smart, Casual' dress code in the evenings, and we do ask Gentlemen to remove their caps please. ... more   less
