About Sea Biscuit Beach House
Nestled in the dunes along a pristine white sand beach, SEA BISCUIT is a beachfront cottage that was crafted over 50 years ago by a local boatbuilding family. A true relic of the island's craftsmen, the wooden cottage provides a place where sea, sky, sand, and coral reefs come together. It can be a place to explore or relax. From sandcastle building to beach combing, and from kayaking to snorkeling among the coral reefs, there are endless options for those who love the sea. Relax with a book in a beachside hammock, enjoy your coffee on the deck at sunrise, or take a nighttime stroll in the sand under the stars. Leave the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of the surf on the shore. If the sea is your refuge, you will be restored at SEA BISCUIT.
SEA BISCUIT BEACH HOUSE sleeps 6. There are 2 traditional bedrooms with king-sized beds and there is an open loft bedroom with 3 twin beds. (The loft is only accessed by a ship's ladder, so it is not suitable for young children.) There is a simple, efficient kitchen which is connected to the dining area and family room. A second beach side dining option is located on the elevated back deck and offers dazzling views of the sky, sea and shore. The family room has a smart TV which you can use to stream your favorite show (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) or watch one of your favorites from the house DVD collection. There are games in the cupboards for family game night, and a grill out back for cooking your catch of the day. 2 Sea Kayaks are available at the house for guests to use.
Sea Biscuit is located on Man O War Cay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas. Man O War was settled by British Loyalists who left the American colonies after the U.S. Revolutionary War. Early residents farmed and fished; some were wreckers who salvaged vessels that were shipwrecked on the reefs. In the 1800's the island became well known for its boatbuilding and Albury Brother's boats are still built on the island today.
During your stay, you can visit the Albury's Sail Shop and Joe's Studio for souvenirs to take home. The Man O War Heritage Museum and Coffee Shop has interesting artifacts and historical information, and also delicious treats. Visitors can rent a golf cart to explore the island, or a boat to visit other islands and beaches. The Low Place on Man O War is perfect for snorkeling and swimming, and offshore, Fowl Cays National Park has amazing reefs for diving and snorkeling. Tahiti Beach on Elbow Cay is most highly recommended for those who want to experience an amazing tropical sandbar paradise. Also recommended is a visit to Hope Town where you can climb the Hope Town lighthouse (built in1862), and a visit the Wyannie Malone Historical Museum to learn about the history of Abaco's Outer Cays. Visit Firefly Sunset Resort or Abaco Inn on Elbow Key for seaside dining. You will enjoy their island ambiance, great food, and beautiful views.
