On the Rocks 2 bedroom cottage with Boat Dock

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco Island, Abaco Islands, Out Islands, Bahamas
In an idyllic location on the impressive and beautiful peninsula of The Eastern Shore and overlooking the Sea of Abaco and Sugar Loaf Cay. The closest thing to being on an island without the need for a boat!

'On the Rocks' is just two miles from the town of Marsh Harbour and the ferry to Guana Cay and within walking distance to the Hope Town and Man of War ferries. The town has a good selection of shops, supermarkets and medical facilities all staffed by friendly and helpful people. Car and Boat Rentals are available locally and there is a good taxi service to and from the International Airport just 20 minutes away. Golf is available at Treasure Cay and Winding Bay and divers are serviced by two well established Dive Shops in the town.

The cottage is a well equipped, cool and comfortable home. One can walk, run and swim in compl...

On the Rocks is the perfect rental cottage for two couples. It’s location in Eastern Shores makes it convenient to shops (groceries, gifts, liquor) and restaurants while still providing the privacy of the lesser populated out islands. The house is immaculately clean and equipped with...More

About the neighbourhood
Beaches & Ferries Abaco

Eastern Shore, Marsh Harbour
There is a small beach West of the cottage. You will pass it on the RHS after the concrete S bend as you enter Eastern Shore.

Mermaid Reef, Pelican Shores, Marsh Harbour
Mermaid Reef is located on Pelican Shore. Turn right off the main road going into town just before the Abaco Beach Resort, which is on the left, at Lignum Vitae. Go up the hill, follow the road round and you will come to it on your right. It is very good for snorkeling. There is a good fish shop on this road beside the boat yard at the bottom of the hill.

Treasure Cay
Go North out of Marsh Harbour to Treasure Cay, one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It is about a 40 minute drive. There is a big beach bar there.
There is also a very nice restaurant...
Getting around
I think it is a good idea to rent a car while visiting On the Rocks as there are two places that I recommend Guests visit. Pete's Pub is about 30 minutes South at Little Harbour and Treasure Sands Club about 40 minutes North at Treasure Cay.
It also makes it easier to go shopping and out for dinner in the evenings.
You can also rent a boat which enables you to visit all the Cays although the ferries are available too.

Directions from Marsh Harbour International Airport to

The new Terminal is now open.

If hiring a car from Seastar Rentals turn right coming out of the terminal and exit the car park. Seastar is located the far side of the roundabout. You will see cars parked on grass and a wooden building up on stilts where the office is situated.

You will enter a dual carriageway and reach a roundabout in approximately a quarter of a mile. Roundabout has large Abaco Parrot statue in the middle, as in the photograph on 'Things to Know' above.

Take the second exit left heading towards town on Great Abaco Highway, passing Abaco Neem and Pine Woods Nursery on your right.

Travel straight on for about 2 miles. The road changes to Dan Mackey Boule...
