Photos and Description of the North Andros vacation house rental

3 Bdrm private oceanfront home. Bonefishing, snorkeling, beach combing, relaxing

Beautiful Oceanfront Home, private location with miles of secluded beach.

Pleasant Dreams, located on Pleasant Harbor in Northern Andros, is completely secluded and surrounded by coconut palms, island habitat, white sandy beaches and turquoise ocean waters. Walk the white sandy beaches for hours and you may never encounter another soul. Known as the eco-tourism destination of The Bahamas because of its large pristine, terrestrial and marine ecosystems, Andros is home to the third longest barrier reef in the world, making it a spectacular diving, snorkeling, and fishing destination.

Pleasant Dreams is the perfect place to unwind, replenish, reconnect with family and friends, and relax.

Miles of sandy beach/ocean front with crystal clear turquoise waters is perfect for children of all ages where shallow waters gradually descend deeper. Also great for the adult who likes to swim, float on chairs in the beautiful water and relax in the sun. For the adventurous adult, deeper waters and snorkeling are just a short swim out. There are several small reefs (easy to snorkel on) right off the beach where you can spear lobster, collect conch, fish or snorkel for many kinds of reef fish.

Andros is known as the 'Bonefishing capital of the world' and there is some very good bonefishing right off of the beach in front of the house. If you are interested in sport or spear fishing off a sport-fishing boat (for Mahi Mahi, Grouper, and other large game fish), guided snorkeling trips, or a Bone Fishing boat & guide, there are several local Bahamian fisherman who will be glad to set up an island adventure that you won't forget. You can be picked up off the beach in front of the house. Let me know if you are interested in these options.

For the non-fisherman, Kayaking, walking the empty beaches, relaxing in the crystal clear waters on floating chairs, biking on the complementary bicycles provided, and beach combing for shells is a favorite pastime.

Andros is an excellent place to go for bird watching. There are more than 300 species of birds found in the Bahamas. One hundred and nine species breed in the Bahamas, 169 species migrate or winter here, and 45 species are vagrants.

Local dining and shopping options include: Angie's fresh bread, the Mennonite farm stand (seasonal) where you can pick-up a full box of fresh veggies and a quart of Andros honey, a fully stocked liquor store, conch shacks, Harold's fish shanty and several local convenience stores where you can pick up most necessities.

Pleasant Dreams can be rented in two different ways: 1. As a three bedroom 2 baths (sleeps 6) or 2. As a two bedroom 1 bath (sleeps 4). The property is always only rented to one party during a rental period.

The master bedroom is located on one side of the house and can be locked separately so that the whole house does not need to be rented if you do not need the space.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with an ocean view and a small private bath with shower. The main house has two bedrooms, one bedroom with an ocean view and king size bed and the other with three twin beds overlooking the garden and Palm trees swaying in the breeze. We also have an additional trundle bed and air beds for extra sleeping arranged upon request and with permission. The bath in the main house has a tub/shower combination. There is also an outdoor shower.

The Kitchen is modern with stainless steel tables and open shelving, gas stove, coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, and a full refrigerator. The Living Room/Dining Room is pleasantly furnished with a large dining room table which seats 8-10, beach house rattan living room furniture, a TV/DVD players and a supply of movies. WIFI is available. There is also a working fireplace for those cool January evenings.

Andros is known as an 'Outer or Family Island' which requires some explanation. No one (that I know of) takes credit cards, and travelers checks can be a problem (not everyone takes them or they charge you extra to use them). Cash is the best thing to bring for money. There is an ATM on the island that you can access if you need more cash; it is located a couple of miles from the house.

It is great fun to Kayak out to Money Cay to look for sand dollars and shells, fish, swim, snorkel or relax in the hammock overlooking turquoise clear waters, and ocean breezes.

Andros, is a very safe island, with wonderful friendly residents. There are small family restaurants that serve local fare, and tiki huts on the beaches for a nice cold Kalik (the local beer) or a Bahama Mama (local rum drink). You can go to Red Bays to shop for the local baskets and woodcarvings created by the people of the island or to Fresh Creek, the Androsia Batik Factory which makes beautiful Batik Clothing using intricate carved Sea Sponges from the island. Explore the limestone caves and amazing Blue Holes, go bird, sea turtle, hermit crab watching, and you can even go wild boar hunting. (ask about this option before arriving). But mostly, Andros is known for it's Bonefishing, Snorkeling, Diving, Shelling, Fishing,Relaxation and Beautiful Beaches.
