Property Details

Updated: Sep 14, 2014
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

2 Beach Front houses, within steps of each other, accomodating 2 guests each.

If you are seeking the ultimate luxury vacation with privacy and romance than look no further, our property is located on Andros Island, the closest island to Nassau, only 13 minutes away by air. Experience your island sanctuary with breathtaking views of the crystal blue ocean and your own private beach house located directly on the beach, (2 villas steps away from each other, 2 guests per unit) beautifully decorated with gorgeous Caribbean furniture, a luxurious king size bed featuring the highest quality linens, ultra plush bath towels, and comfy white waffle weave, spa robes. With no neighbours in site, yet steps away from Nicholl's Town, imagine upon your arrival that you are greeted with drinks on ice, smooth island music and some delicious Bahamian dishes prepared especially for you. Sink into complete bliss with an on site professional massage, a cool cocktail with your loved one while sitting in your own private screened in deck or relaxing on a hammock under the majestic Casarinas....your choice. A large plazma screen satellite TV, stereo system and free wifi will get you in the vacation mood while keeping you connected.

Your vacation sanctuary offers complete privacy, beautiful white sand beaches, and crystal clear water surrounding the property as it is on a point, creating the most incredible panoramic views, sun rises and ultimate relaxation. The properties are located on "Nicholl's Town Point" which is on the North East side of Andros Island. The beach heading both north and south of the property are virtually void of any buildings or people however, within walking distance (2 minutes) you will find the local tikki huts serving native dishes, drinks, and small grocery stores. We believe our point holds one of the most incredible views in the Caribbean where the ocean surrounds you on both the north and east side of the property creating a stunning panoramic view. Andros Island is the perfect holiday to bring your flip flops, sunscreen, and a great book. It is also a great place for self made activity such as going for a run on a cool crisp morning and listening to the roosters crow, meandering around the village by foot or bicycle, taking a long walk on the beach and jumping in the ocean to cool off, snorkling along one of the largest barrier reefs in the world, fish all day -deep sea or bone fish and catch dinner for the night.

LIVING AREA SET UP:

Each unit is a self contained, clean, open concept design with lots of light. Each unit has its own private bathroom, fully stocked open concept kitchen and living area.

ACTIVITIES:

AndrosIsland is full of activities to do both in and out of the water. Whether it's fishing for trophy-size fish, exploring ancient ruins, bird-watching, hunting for buried treasure, meandering through quaint coastal towns and villages, shopping for batik fabrics or simply soaking up the tropical sunshine,AndrosIsland has something for everyone.

BICYCLES:

Bicycles are available for rent. Tour the areas surrounding Nicholl’s Town. We have maps and suggested itineraries. Or bike a few miles south to an inland blue hole for a fresh water swim.

FISHING:

Book a 1/2 or full day. Andros offers world class Bonefishing, reef fishing, deep sea fishing—you can do it all! You can hire a guide for a day or just cast a line off the point right on your own private beach. Andros is known as the "Bonefish Capital of the World".

MASSAGE:

Book an on site massage: a massage therapist will come to you, enjoy a massage on the beach or under a shady tree with a relaxing breeze

DIVING & SNORKLING:

AndrosIsland has world renowned diving and fantastic reefs for snorkeling. You can dive during the day, night dives, shark dives, and one-on-oneSpecialty Dives anytime. All of this on the Andros Barrier Reef - the 3rd largest reef system in the world! A day trip by boat can be arranged for a fee plus there is plenty of great snorkeling along the shore.

WILD BOAR HUNTING

Andros has an abundance of wild boar. You can hire a guide to take you hunting for a day through the mangrove swamps! This can be a dangerous trek so please do so at your own risk. This certainly is not for the faint of heart, wild boars are vicious animals and have been known to massacre multiple, pit bull dogs in one trip. Or, on a more mellow approach, you can purchase a side of boar from the hunters and cook it over a nice flame on the BBQ (we prefer this method). If you ask nicely, you might even get to keep a few tusks from their recent catch.

BIRDING

There are over 200 species of birds that inhabit theBahamas--andAndros, with its vast undeveloped land, is home to many of them.

HAMMOCKING

One of our favorite activities and can soon be one of yours….

MILES OF UNTOUCHED BEACHES

Anytime is a good time to stroll along the beach. It's perfectly safe, day or night.

COLLECTING SHELLS

Being an undeveloped island, imagine the interesting finds on a leisurely walk down a mile or two of virgin beach, you can find the most beautiful shells, sea urchins, dried coral in multiple colors, and whatever the last storm blew onto shore….

RED BAYS

Basket Weaving A remote village settled by Seminole Indians and Blacks in 1821. The basket-weaving crafts practiced here are detailed and highly advanced.

Red Bays is a very different community on Andros, originally settled by the Seminole Indians from Florida. When theUS was putting Indians in reservations

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I just returned from a week in Francine and Rob’s Beach House in Nichols Town, North Andros. If you want a peaceful and very private honeymoon, this place is for you. Only twice did we have a local fisherman cast his line from our beach; otherwise it was gloriously private and quiet, even though it is less than 200 yards from town and the local waterfront restaurants. The cottage is an open bedroom, living room and kitchen with large bath (including nice washer and dryer). Everything is first class. The cottage is located about 50 feet from the water, allowing you to lie in bed in the morning and watch the beautiful blue surf roll in. One evening we had Leslie the caretaker prepare dinner of fresh grouper and lobster….wonderful! And every evening we had Stacy provide us massage on the screened porch while the rolling waves put us to sleep. The beach is a beautiful pink-tan color and the water that irresistible Bahamian blue. There is a breaker reef about 1000 feet offshore, and numerous small reefs for snorkeling just a few feet from your beach. If the waves get too high to snorkel while you are there, drive three miles to Conch Sound and snorkel or dive the blue hole, or snorkel for large starfish. This large bay seems calm all the time. Remember that this is on the “out islands” of the Bahamas. There is no one to rake up the seaweed or pick up the plastic that comes in with the tides. That being said, the beaches are still perfect for a beachcomber. If you are in the mood for a week on a beautiful, almost-private lovely swimming beach near the friendliest little town in the Bahamas, then the Beach House is for you.

Great Fishing experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Beach House 2 and found it spacious, quiet and super clean. The screened in porch was a blessing and we used it every morning watching the sunrise over the ocean. I love to fish and Zona, the property manager, not only is a diving fisherman but he also has a flats boat and taught me fly fishing. My first fish ever caught on a fly rod was a bone fish and wow.... what a fight. I am hooked on bone fishing for ever. My wife spent her days walking through Nicolstown and swimming and getting massages on the beach as Zona has a professional masseuse on staff for guests. Having limitless fresh drinking water was a great surprise as this is not common on the family islands. I have already put a deposit down for another stay in the spring as we can't wait to get back to the quiet peacefulness of Nicolstown Point Andros Island.

Property was wonderful! What a great location.

  • 5 of 5
This property is once of the nicest places to stay on the entire island. We drove the island from north to south and explored, and there is not much better than this. Zona was a great resource and tour guide for all our activities. This is NOT the place to come to if your seeking night life, city experiences, etc. it is a low key area with incredible snorkeling and diving. It is very safe and the local people are wonderful.

View of a life time!

  • 4 of 5
The Beach House afforded us a nice shaded area with a cool breeze based on the location on the island. It was clean and well-maintained.
Being able to swim and snorkel right from the house was fabulous. We loved being able to sit on the screened porch, lounge on a lounge chair, and swing in the hammock. We also enjoyed the hunt for unique shells along the beach. We found lots to bring home.
Additionally, we enjoyed our boat trip with Zona to bone fish and snorkel in deeper waters. The ocean color was breathtaking and so clear! Zona made us feel safe and answered all our questions. He provided lots of historical information and food options.
Francine was very accessible and responded immediately to any questions we had during our stay.

A Real Taste of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
When I spotted Francine's beach homes on the Internet, I thought...OMG, this can't be true. But then, I called her and discovered such a warm and genuine lady who also, absolutely loves going to Andros Idland. We stYed in Beach Home 1 for two of the most wonderful weeks ever! The decor isbeautuful, well maintained, right on the beach, and very private. Zona took great carenof us...always there when we needed to get to town or connect us with bone fishing guides. The first night we came in a bit late, so for $15 each, he and his wife prepared a delicious local Bahamian, chicken dinner. Well, we were also greeted with yummy conch fritters. it was so surreal to wake up every morning to the lapping of the waves onto our pristine white beach, read our books as we sipped coffee and felt the breeze through our screened in porch. The snorkeling is quite good; the beach combing is excellent; the proximity to Sharrie's shack for a scrumptious seafood platter is right around the corner. The listing for this little taste of Paradise was very accurate and you can bet your bottom dollar that we will return again some day. Having Stacy come over to give us massages right out by the beach was certainly icing on the cake! I cannot recommend these two private beach homes enough.

Wonderful Island Escape

  • 5 of 5
Nothing compares to the breath taking views of the ocean from Beach House two. We had originally requested Beach House one which was not available, so we decided to stay in Beach House two…..boy were we happy we did! This beach house was spectacular! Just what we were looking for in a private, romantic getaway for two. It had all of the amenities we could ask for…a wonderful king size bed, a private screened in deck right on the beach, two large sliding glass doors facing the ocean, an outdoor shower right around the corner so that we could rinse off before entering our unit and an authentic, island, thatched roof outdoor dining area with seating for 4. Zona, the property manager was so helpful in setting up our daily activities from getting our kayaks ready, to snorkeling equipment and bicycles for afternoon treks around the village. The property is so well equip for loads of island activity…we would snorkel every afternoon right in front of the property which has an amazing beach to walk out from and as you swim out, you come to a beautiful coral reef. The reef fish were abundant and the coral was simply gorgeous. Then a few mornings, Zona took us out fishing and would cook us the most delicious fish dinner with all the local fix’ins. We rode our bicycles to Conch Sound and snorkeled around the Blue Hole which was an experience all on its own. I don’t think we had ever seen so many fish, in all different sizes, in one spot at the same time….Apparently the Andros Blue Holes were discovered by Jacques Cousteau and his team who would dive down into the holes to see where they ended up! We weren’t quite as adventurous but none the less, truly enjoyed the experience. If you are looking for an alternative from the resort style of vacation, something a bit different and memorable, then we would highly recommend staying at this property. It offers everything for a wonderful island escape.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We had the wonderful opportunity to stay in Beach House two. The view of the beach and ocean couldn’t be more outstanding as there are 2 huge, sliding glass doors that directly face the water…..one of them open right into your own, private, screened in patio with seating for 2, the other is from the kitchen where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The beach house is very clean, beautifully decorated in tropical furnishings and very comfortable. Even though we don’t watch TV when on vacation, the large screen TV at the foot of our king size bed was great to catch up on world news. Speaking of the bed, we had the most wonderful sleeps as the mattress is very comfortable and bedding quite luxurious…. The unit is quite spacious and bright and we appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was as we enjoy making our own meals. Our first meal on the island was amazing….Zona the property manager and his wife Bernadette greeted us with such hospitality and great food! We tried conch fritters for the first time and a lobster dinner….what a treat! Francine, the owner helped to coordinate our travel to the island which made for stress-free travel to and from the island. We definitely recommend Beach House two and would love to return in the future.

Red Bays: Basket Weaving A remote village settled by Seminole Indians and Blacks in 1821. For many years the settlement lay isolated and could only be reached by boat. The basket-weaving crafts practiced here are detailed and highly advanced.

Red Bays is a very different community onAndros, originally settled by the Seminole Indians fromFlorida. When theUS was putting Indians in reservations, a group decided not to accept that "good deal", and hopped in their little boats, high-tailing it toAndrosIsland. The people live in a pretty 'rough' style, and it's fascinating to see.

How to buy baskets in Andros: On Andros, many people in Red Bays make and sell baskets. Miss Marshall's grandchildren: John Grant and Joan Russell are two of the finest. There are no stores here; buying is a casual affair. Ask around and you'll be guided directly to their homes. Ask anyone where Miss Omeilia Marshall lives so you can visit her and choose from a variety of baskets, hats and bags directly from her. Purchase is with cash only. A small selection of Red Bays baskets are also in the boutique

AndrosBlue Holes Below the surface ofAndrosIslandis a complex maze of underwater caves called blue holes. Experienced recreational divers can enter from either the ocean or island entrances and retrace the steps of the famous Jacques Cousteau.

* Uncle Charlie's Blue Hole Jacques Cousteau made this hole famous when, with the use of dye, he proved this inland blue hole connects to the ocean. This is a favorite place for visitors and locals alike to relax near and take in their tropical surroundings.

* Captain Bill's Blue Hole A large, perfectly round inland blue hole measuring 440 feet in diameter. Both locals and visitors take pleasure in swimming in its crystal blue waters and swinging from a rope overhead.

* Mariner's Well Located inPleasantHarbour is an unusual house constructed in the shape of the letter "A." On this property is a well, called "Mariner's Well" by the locals, said to have been used by the crewmen of the sponging era as far back as the early 17th century.

Native Colony Ruins About a half-mile south ofPleasantHarbour, on the inland side, are eight stone buildings dating back to the 1930s that represent the old Bahamian style of architecture. They are open for exploration and are excellently preserved due to the fact that, for some unknown reason, they were abandoned and never inhabited.
