About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Beach Front Cottage

Elephant Beach House has approximately 700 square feet of air conditioned living area, plus scenic wood decks, thatched roof gazebo and deck overlooking the beautiful beach. Spacious stairs with comfortable landings provide additional living space to enjoy the spectacular views. Our beach is composed of some of the softest beach sand you will find anywhere in the world and is secluded (you may observe 10 people walk down the beach all day)! The cottage is rustic and cozy with split unit air conditioning and wall units for back-up. The small kitchen was completely updated in 2016 with granite countertops and new cabinets. It has a full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave oven, and toaster. The cottage is a split plan with the bedrooms each containing a queen size bed. The front bedroom has an attached bathroom with stand-up shower. The back bedroom has a water closet and an outdoor shower that overlooks the Sea of Abaco beyond the jungle. The cottage sleeps two couples comfortably. A golf cart is recommended and can be rented on the island. The lot is 750 feet deep and 100 feet wide on the beach with a tropical jungle surrounding the cottage. The cottage has a backup diesel generator in case of power outages.

About Brian Bursa

We are attorneys in Florida. We fell in love with this property and purchased it in 2004. We are fortunate to stay at Elephant Beach House 5 times each year.

Brian Bursa purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Brian Bursa chose Great Guana Cay

If you are looking for a secluded, island/beach get away, this is an ideal property. It is rustic (not fancy). This is not a luxury property. True beach/island enthusiasts will love the seclusion...the views...and the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

The stunning views and secluded nature of this property are what we love the most about Elephant Beach House.

Elephant Beach House is our favorite place to go

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love the Elephant Beach House. It’s quite literally a breathtaking view.

With all of the upgrades, it has become even more comfortable. We love the hammock and tiki area. I could sit there with a drink in my hand the whole day. This is our third time and we’re ready to return already. We are thankful that you have shared this little corner of paradise with us.

Special Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival, the cottage was immaculate and warmly welcoming. We loved every aspect from the cottage, the upper deck with chairs, tables, and hammack, the picnic table deck overlooking the Atlantic and incredible beach, and the lower level deck on the beach with rocking chairs! Whatever we were doing, it was perfect... going for walks on the beach, playing in the ocean, kayaking, exploring the island in our golf cart, grilling, or heading out to the handful of wonderful restaurants. We spent several afternoons at Grabbers, time at Clyde's at Sunsetters, dinner at Sunsetters, a wonderful romantic dinner at Mermaids on the Rocks, and drinks and dinner at Captain Kidd's. The people of the island were wonderful. The ocean views were unbelievable no matter what the weather... This was an amazing escape and we can't wait to visit again!

Getting away from it all in Guana Cay

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as we thought it would be , very private and right on the beach . The cottage had everything you would need , quite comfortable and you just can't beat the sound of the waves crashing on the beach as you fall asleep at night . The caretaker Darvin met us at the dock with our golf cart for the week when we arrived and he couldn't have been nicer ! I know we will be back ......

No words to describe a little piece of heaven❤️ Beautiful and so peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This property is the most beautiful and pictureous Island cottage we have ever vacationed at. The bluff view is outstanding. Three decks allowed us to enjoy the sun from all angles. We loved our total privacy from the beautiful turquoise sea to the deep green of the jungle. Will definitely return.
