Marsh Harbour is the principal settlement on the island but is quite small by U.S. standards. There are 2 super markets, drug store, hardware stores, and liquor stores. Also there are several marinas, hotels, gift shops, and a nice selection of restaurants. Rental cars, boats, motor scooters, and bicycles are available. There are doctors, dentists and a government clinic. The airport is 2 miles from town.
Sugar Loaf Cottage is 2 1/2 miles from town in the other direction from the airport. It is located on the private road servicing Eastern Shores, which is a narrow peninsula about 2 miles long and 1 house and road wide. It protected by Sugar Loaf Cay to the south east making a natural harbour where our dock is located. From the front of the house the view across the Sea of Abaco in the other direction is also wonderful. On this side you can swim in shallow water over pure white sand.
The house has a double living area on each side of the house with glass wall views over the water. The back side includes a large sunning deck and steps to the dock which has 6' of water at low tide. The living areas are divided by a fully equipped kitchen (brand new in 99) and breakfast bar. There are four bedrooms and three baths. The whole house is wonderfully furnished and decorated in island style. Linens and towels are furnished but beach towels are not, so bring your own. We have direct dial telephone service and a VHF radio which serves as a local telephone system which most everybody monitors. You should supply your own snorkle, diving, or fishing equipment although it may be rented in town. Taxi service is excellent.
Sugar Loaf Cottage offers the ultimate in fun in the sun or water and exploring nearby cays, settlements, beaches and reefs. The water is crystal clear and the visibility will amaze you. The people of Abaco are very friendly and you will feel welcome every where.
