“Fabulous Getaway”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We recently stayed at “On The Rocks” and what a fabulous cottage this is !!
The property is situated at the end of a very quiet private road. The House is very spacious with a lovely large bedroom with on suite bathroom and a great sized second bedroom. The decking that over hangs the sea is wonderful. With steps directly into the water, it was perfect for the morning swim. The perfect place to watch the fish by day and study the amazing stars at night. The kitchen has all you need to cook and the property also has great WiFi.
Christopher was incredibly helpful from the first contact and throughout, offering advice on local restaurants, beaches and Islands to explore. He always answered any emails immediately and even arranged to have us collected from the airport and taken to the property.
Marsh Harbour has some lovely restaurants. We especially enjoyed “Jamies” which serves local Bahamian fare, “The Jib Room” on the other side of the harbour serves great lunch and “Java” coffee shop is a must for any caffeine junkies !! For diving and snorkelling I would highly recommend “Dive Abaco”. The owner is a Canadian called Keith who made us feel very welcome.
We rented a car for our trip and this is really a good thing to do. There is a lovely Bay about 30 mins by car called “Treasure Cay”. Stunning beach and crystal clear water. This is also the place to get the ferry to Green Turtle Cay. A beautiful island that is well worth the trip. The ferry to Hope Town and Man O War go from the ferry office that is a 10 min stroll from “On The Rocks”.
The best part of being in Marsh Harbour though was coming back to “On The Rocks” after a day exploring and relaxing in this great house.
I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to go to the Bahamsas to go to Marsh Harbour and stay at “On The Rocks” a real home from home.

We fly home tomorrow after 1 month here. Seriously considered staying another 2 weeks but it's booked. Considered staying for a year after the next guests vacate but I'd have no business left on return to the UK. Simply fabulous, the balcony sort of did it for us, it has been hypnotic watching eagle rays, sting rays, dolphin, trigger fish, octopus, shark, turtles and lots of other things drift by in their own environment 6ft below us and typically 3 to 6ft out from where we sat. The owners were very polite and accommodating, no unpleasant surprises, it is what is shown - the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the cottage so great for a small family or 2 couples. God willing we'll be back next year, no need to look for anywhere else, this place has been perfect for us :-) Please don't sell !!

“Everything we were looking for”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We flew in to Marsh Harbour with another couple hoping to spend 3 days & nights chasing adventure. We were impressed with the perfect condition of the house - clean, new, and tastefully decorated. It is centrally located so everything is a short boat ride away. Huge deck facing north with a view of several cays and the Sea of Abaco. A million stars out at night capped days spent fishing, diving, snorkeling and sightseeing. Can't wait to go back!
