This enchanting 20 acre private Bahamian cay on the Sea of Abaco captures the essence of island living. Just 30 minutes from the international airport and jet service, Foot’s Cay offers uniquely convenient access to the central hub of Marsh Harbour.
The four suite “Main house” with it’s impressive vaulted ceilings, massive doors, and limestone floor evokes a sense of grandeur with a clean, simple aesthetic. Wide covered verandas flow seamlessly from the great room and offer gracious outdoor living and dining areas. With professional quality appliances and seating for twenty, this house serves as the backdrop for truly memorable dining experiences.
The three bedroom guest house is a more traditional Bahamian style cottage with cypress interiors and terra cotta tile floors. The crow’s nest above is an ideal location for evening cocktails while watching the sun sink brilliantly into the sea. The main house and guest house are both perched along the southeast side of the island on the highest elevations capturing the cool prevailing breezes. The wraparound porches offer the perfect vantage point for watching the activity on the bay. On the eastern end of the island, there is a small secluded beach with excellent snorkeling just offshore. Or take a walk across the island through lush natural foliage to the pristine western beach with it’s sugary soft white sand and amazing sunset vistas. Tucked away at the end of the western beach is another two bedroom guest cottage. With it’s spacious living area and kitchen, guests can enjoy their stay on the island in comfort and privacy.
Anyone for tennis? The island court features a durable and comfortable Plexi-pave surface and is complemented by the “Cabana” overlooking the western beach. The Cabana features a full assortment of modern exercise and stereo equipment with gourmet kitchen and bar area. All of the residences are connected by shady sand paths that also lead to the protected cut- out limestone harbor. Able to accommodate two boats up to 45 feet, with room for other smaller boats, the harbour offers 6 feet of draft, electricity and water receptacles, and a large dock house for gear storage.
Additional amenities include dedicated underground electric and phone service, two large docks on either side of the island, automated standby generator, reverse osmosis water system, large capacity ice-maker, island manager’s office, extra capacity laundry facility, high speed internet communications, and an assortment of beach and water toys.
