“Nicest Little Place in the Abacos”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

Just returned home from the Abacos. While in the islands our home base was the Lofty Fig Villas. Sid was a great host and helped my wife and I plan our day trips to all of the surrounding islands. Sid directed us to Pete’s Pub in Little Harbor, Nipper’s on Guana Cay , the local bakery and several great beaches. The Lofty Fig is in the center of Marsh Harbour, right across the street from the marina and in walking distance of all of the restaurants and bars in town. Thanks Sid for the hospitality. We will see you next year.

We stayed at Lofty Fig for one night before we boarded a yacht and it was great. I only wish we had been staying longer as the location was great, just across from the harbour and lots of nice restaurants, bars & shops. The villa had everything we needed and the pool was an added bonus.

Sid's welcome was lovely and he let us know about things to do in the area. If ever we go back to Marsh Harbour we would definately stay here.

We loved the unique and convenient Lofty Fig. Sid's hospitality was great, and the accommodations were too. We recommend it to anyone planning to spend a few days in Marsh Harbour...especially charter sailers. SunSail and Moorings are right accross the street.

My husband, daughter and family shared one duplex building with two rooms and we really enjoyed our stay. Sid was quick to answer booking questions and he greeted us and checked us in our room early in the morning. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The pool was spotless as well as the grounds. The air conditioning worked well and we had free internet access which was a big plus. Each unit has a full kitchen and we were able to store our food before our boat charter. The store was within walking distance and we had a nice meal in the restaurant across the street. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Marsh Harbor. SC visitors

These villas are immaculate little apartments with kitchen and patio in the heart of the tourist section of Marsh Harbor. Spotless and colorful, these villas were perfect for our three-night, two-day bonefishing trip. The kitchen allowed us to fix a hot breakfast each morning, to have coffee whenever we wanted and to prepare lunches for our fishing trips; the location allowed us to walk to all the great restaurants in town. A huge plus, the taxi cab stand is just across the street. Take time to visit with the proprietor, Sid, who is as colorful as the villas and knows everyone in town.

We stayed the majority of our trip out on Elbow Cay, but for our first and last night in the Bahamas we stayed @ the Lofty Fig. We really enjoyed the central location w/3 restaurants and a liquor store within rock throwing distance. Its a mile from the Boat Ferry dock to outer islands and about five miles from the airport. Very clean, spacious rooms and grounds w/a great little swimming pool, our stay here was a great way to begin and end the trip.

Competent owner who has a really nice, clean place with cottages, swimming pool and curly tail lizards running around the property for entertainment. Conveniently located in Marsh Harbour. We were only going to stay one night as we toured Cays around the area. As it turned out, after visiting surrounding Cays, we returned to Abaco and the Lofty Fig to spend three more nights.

Many amenities including pool area, kitchenette including good sized refrigerator, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, radio/CD clock (bring your favorite music), flat screen TV and lovely, comfortable furniture. Loved the fig place and owner.
