“An excellent home base in Marsh Harbour!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed at The Lofty Fig for four nights in late September. It is ideally located for exploring Marsh Harbour and the Cays. The ferry to Great Guana Cay stops right across the street, and the Hopetown ferry is about a mile up the road. Groceries can be found at Maxwell's, a short walk away. The rooms are large, and having a kitchen is a great bonus. There are three restaurants right across the street, Snappas, Mangoes, and Curly Tails. Sid, the owner, is extremely helpful and a font of local knowledge that helps to make you feel right at home. We'll be back!

We stayed here this summer prior to taking our charter from the Moorings (which is right across the street). There were 4 of us and we were very comfortable. Two slept on the bed and two on the rollaways. There was a small kitchen where we kept all our groceries for our charter. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The pool area was right outside our room which was very nice and CLEAN! The owner, Sid, came out to play with us in the pool one day and he's a really nice guy. We will definitely go back when we charter our next yacht.

If you are visiting Marsh Harbour, Abaco this is the place to stay. Sid is very accommodating. There is always improvements being made to the rooms. Lofty Fig is the only place where I stay when I go to Marsh Habour. If you don't see it (what ever) in the room ask Sid and he would get it for you.

If you are staying in Marsh Harbour, this is the place! The villas are more like a condo than a hotel room. Central to the marina, restaurants, shopping. Very good value as well. The lawns are nicely manicured, there is a great pool and patio. Sid is the owner and is always available for help.

Sid takes great care of his property and guests. Manicured everything, on this small quaint piece of of peacefulness.

Stayed there our first night in The Abacos before our Moorings cruise and then again on way home.

Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Far better than The Conch Inn across the street. Unless you like hustle - bustle and noise.

Sid is the perfect host for these charming cottages that his parents built years ago. They are well maintained, with updated bathrooms and kitchen facilities. Excellent location for boating & diving. The ferry to Guanna Cay is across the street. Hello Nippers! Restaurants & live music withing walking distance. By far, the best choice in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottages facing the road, however they were very quiet.

A very convenient location, only a one minute walk from Dive Abaco and their dive boat, and the Seabase dock where our boy scouts were sailing from. Next to a liquor store and many restaurants. A short cab ride to the grocery store. Sid was very accomodating and a great host. I would absolutely stay there again. The small kitchen was perfect for breakfasts and lunches. I do agree that the mattress was too firm, but no big deal for me. Great book exchange library in Sid's office too! Also internet service. Thanks Sid!
