Palm cove house offers a new carrier air-conditioning system to provide comfort should the outside weather be too warm or if the ocean breezes through the 3 large french doors just don't keep you comfortable along with multiple ceiling fans.

The great room is a huge combination living and dining area and provides excellent space for family time, visiting and entertaining.

The enormous oceanside deck provides an excellent space to sit, relax, eat meals, or entertain on tropitone furniture. There is nothing else like it on Great Harbour Cay. What better way to enjoy the sunrise or have cocktails and dinner at sunset.

About John Larimer owner

Rhode Island residents, we have been winter residents on Great Harbour Cay since 1983 and decided to become winter residents and build our own home rather than rent in 2001.

John Larimer owner purchased this house in 2002

Why John Larimer owner chose Berry Islands

We return to GHC because we have not found a more scenic, enjoyable and friendly site in the Carribean. The Bahamian locals offer their hand in friendship and provide a range of services from guides for fishing, diving, snorkeling, and lobstering to great eating at local restaurants.

Relaxed and Rested

  • 5 of 5

Great home with comfortable layout and ocean view. It is elevated so you get a constant breeze. The beach behind the house is a little rocky but if you drive a half mile towards the airport there is a beach access to one of the nicest beaches on the island with a sand bar. Marthanise was a great help, we arrived after midnight due to engine problems and she was waiting for us at the marina with a large van to help us unload. She was there for us for anything that we needed all trip whether it was a little conch salad or for help with some customs documents.

relax and enjoy the beach and view!!!!

  • 5 of 5

we booked on here, VRBO, as I always do. we were contacted right away from the owners and taken care of from day one. We flew with Ocean Tropic Air out of Fort Lauderdale (FLL) on there new Cessna Caravan. what a nice company and very professional pilots and crew. There manger on the island, Marthanise is great! she met us at the great harbor cay airport and took us to the house. on the way she showed us some places to eat and visit. she also set us up with a rent a car. Once at the house, WOW, and WOW again!! what a view. the house is very big and very nice. we enjoyed the back porch very much. we sat and had many drinks on the porch. the rooms are big and made up nice. the master and the second bedroom opens up to the back porch. the living room is huge and the kitchen has everything needed. the walk down to the beach is very short, once there we enjoyed swimming and playing on what felt like our own private beach. also whats nice, after swimming the outdoor shower by the steps was nice to rinse the sand off before going inside the house. You will want to rent a car to get around the island. the island is not very big but in order to visit the shell beach and the caves, you will need a car. The island has a few places to eat, but be prepared to bring some food just in case. we arrived on sunday after 1:00pm and everything was closed. we did bring food for at least 2 days, so we were good. In town the "Village" you can go to the small store and there is a bar next to it to stock up on adult drinks. If you want a really good meal and great people, go see Angie and Marty at Carriearl Restaurant and Boutique. A++++++Food.

Would I go back to this house and stay? thats easy, yes we would. book this house and sit back and enjoy.

Thankyou to this family for putting there home on VRBO and sharing it with others to enjoy!!

A New Yorker's Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot for everyone! I didn't want to leave this wonderful and spacious home. This upscale home had everything that one would desire in a vacation spot in the Bahamas. We enjoyed everything from snorkeling, boating, fishing and taking in the beautiful views! The house itself is breathtaking and even better than the photos. I have never been this pleased with a vacation home! My only complaint is that I didn't see a sting ray... But my friends did!

Great Family Spot You Won't Want to Leave

  • 4 of 5

Wide angle lenses always make rooms in rentals look bigger than life but in this case the photos don't do the house justice. We walked in the front door and could not believe the size of the kitchen, great room, bedrooms and deck! We were pleasantly surprised.

The location was exactly as described and on one of the prettiest beaches in The Bahamas. The path to the water was rocky but manageable for everyone. The water was a little rough when the wind went east so we moved our boat down to The Beach Club for a few days. Otherwise it was anchored right in front of the house. The view is spectacular. We spent hours staring out at the blue water, Petit Cay, passing cruise ships and stars like you've never seen before.

The house is clean, well furnished and well maintained. Everything that you could need in a kitchen is there including plates, glasses, pots, pans, serving dishes and utensils. They even have a food processor and fondue pot. It is very nicely decorated and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in their home.

The owners were very helpful in answering our questions and the property manager checked in often to see if we needed anything. We had some problems with the telephone and internet which is pretty common at Great Harbour. This was always resolved in a reasonable amount of time. The only other problem that we had was that our friends liked the kitchen so much that they were constantly coming over for dinner to cook the fish that we caught.

We spent most of our days fishing, diving and taking boat rides to our favorite spots where we'd float around on noodles and drink rum punch. Some nights we'd go to CarrieEarl, the Pool Bar or The Beach Club for drinks and dinner. On Friday nights in July the locals have a Junkanoo at the marina that they claim is for the tourists. They sure have a lot of fun on our behalf.

The locals and visitors on the island are very friendly people. They all share a love of the water, fishing, diving, boating and beautiful scenery. We certainly recommend the island and the Palm Cove House to all of our friends and family.

It was a wonderful trip! We can't wait to get back.

Sand, Sun and Fun on Great Harbor Cay, Berry Islands, Bahamas

  • 4 of 5

The house location and descriptions were excellent. The house was very clean and comfortable. Loved the huge bedrooms, expansive back porch, outdoor shower and incredible ocean view. The beach access was a little rocky to climb down, but accessible. We had a few issues with technology (internet, TV) but the home owner resolved those issues quickly. We enjoyed the quiet, laid-back atmosphere of the island and the friendliness of the Bahamians. Highly recommend bringing a healthy supply of groceries (meats, fruits, veggies, breads) with you to the island as these items are hard to find and groceries in general are very expensive. Dining out is an option, and also enjoyable, but menu items can be limited based on availability of supplies. We enjoyed dining at the Rocky Hill Pool Bar, CarriEarl, The Beach Club and WhiteWater. We had a great time with "Kenny" on 2 different day trips. The first was a boat ride to the legendary Blue Hole, then spear fishing for lobster, a shore lunch with our fresh lobster (oh, so yummy!), snorkeling and more. The second trip was tackle-free bone fishing with Kenny - no rod, no reel, no net! Just a spool of line, hook and weight. What a challenge and we caught over 70 fish!! Snapper, grouper, porgy and many more. Fresh snapper for dinner was the BEST! Collecting sand dollars and shells at the southern end of the island was a favorite. Spotting ocean life like sting ray, starfish, crabs, conchs, and even baby shark in the shallow water was fun. Manatees are supposedly seen in the harbor, but we never glimpsed any. We would highly recommend this destination if you wish to escape the more touristy locales; a crowd on this island = 20 people in the same spot!! And recommend a rental car, even for this little island - just remember to drive on the left!
