Why Candace chose Great Guana Cay
Blue Surf Cottage is sited on one of the best stretches of pink sandy beach and is home to the finest snorkeling and scuba diving any where in the world. The nature and pure beauty from this location was a draw to make it home.
What makes this House unique
Views of the Sea of Abaco from the front yielding soothing sunsets and the morning strolls on the beach with a cup of coffee are divine. The home has been built with care and love which is evident from the onset.

Gorgeous Oceanfront Home
Let me start by saying that I rarely leave reviews on properties but wanted to comment on what a wonderful vacation this was for our family. We traveled to Great Guana over Thanksgiving week and have never been to the Abacos and knew that it would be the off season traveling there in November. We had picture perfect weather the whole week. 80s and sunny. The pictures of the house do it no justice. Every room is so beautifully decorated with comfy beds and a kitchen equipped with anything you could ever need to cook a gourmet meal. We rented a golf cart from Donna Sands golf cart rentals which is a must for getting around the island. We also rented a boat from Dive Guana for 4 days to island hop. Without the boat I would say, especially during the off season, there may not have been much for us to do but enjoy the beautiful beach in front of the house. We loved leaving every day on the boat and exploring all the islands. We traveled to Hope Town, Green Turtle Cay and No Name Cay to see the pigs. This was the highlight of the trip for my kids ages 8&11 getting to see the pigs. Such a cool experience. Jackie, the caretaker was very helpful when we arrived by ferry. She met us at the dock, had our golf cart waiting for us and brought us to the house. We picked up groceries in Marsh Harbor at Maxwells and ferried them over to Guana. There is a small grocery store on the island that we used quite often when we ran out of things. Orchid Bay did a traditional Thanksgiving dinner that was very nice at their restaurant Sunsetters and we we went to Grabbers at least 3xs for dinner, lunch and drinks. The ocean in front of the house is rough but I think it was so rough only because we visited during the off season where the seas have bigger swells. It’s a beautiful beach though and we still enjoyed the beach. My family loves to snorkel so we did all of our snorkeling off the boat at different spots recommend by Troy at Dive Guana. All in all, I can not say enough good things about the Blue Surf Cottage and all the islands of the Abacos. We will definitely be back!
Great house on a great beach
The house was just as all other reviews said. On a great beach and a great house with everything you need. Jackie the caretaker was great. Thanks we will be back
Beautiful Vacation home!
Thank you so much for making Blue Surf Cottage the perfect spot for our family vacation. My husband and I along with our 3 children and my parents had a lovely time staying in your home. I always travel with my own bedding...this was not necessary as the sheets and down pillows were all very comfortable and welcoming after a long day of beach play. This house is very well appointed and had all of our favorite at-home ammenities to include a gas range, tons of cookware and even a nespresso frother for our coffee! None of us wanted to leave...we plan to return in March. We are so thankful we found this gorgeous spot for our future trips to Guana. Nils and Jackie were wonderful to work with as well. Many thanks! Looking forward to our return. The Peat and Wilson Family
Dear Britt Anne:
Thank you for posting this nice review. I am so happy that you had a good time during your stay at Blue Surf Cottage.
The house has a perfect location on the island, great views. Well appointed on the inside of the house. The large outdoor sitting area off the back of the house is not covered. The doors in the house are slatted and do not provide any privacy to the bedrooms, a bit awkward. Other than that this house is fantastic !
Birthday Bash for a friend
A group of 7 stayed at Blue Surf for a friends birthday bash which was March 16. We celebrated her birthday at Nippers and again on St. Paddy's day. Jackie met us at the dock and along with a golf cart from Donna's we made our way to Blue Surf. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was wonderful. Beautiful views of bright blue water and a wonderfull beach. The kitchen was fully furnished with just about anything you wanted ( 2 blenders, toaster,coffee pots,lots of pots and pans, tons of dishes and glasses). We brought water and drinks but tap water (rain water) was just fine. This was the first time I had used VRBO or rented a house and was a little nervous but everything was as promised and then some. Jackie even baked a cake for our birthday girl. There was plenty of linens, towels and beach towels.The living room had very comfortable seating for all seven of us and the round table had plenty of room for all of us. The outdoor seating area was our favorite place to enjoy the day. A great sound system thru out the home. Jackie and Nils answered all my questions and made us all very comfortable . I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Guana Caye. Birthday girl say it was superb .
Our family enjoyed the location of the the house on the island.
Having the beautiful Atlantic out your back door was awesome.
Also, the view from the porches with the sea breeze was relaxing!
We plan to return!
