Picture yourself sitting on a porch, with the clear blue flats of the Bahamas in front of you and a splendid white wine at hand. Life's good at Sunset Point houseboat on Andros!
This truly unique houseboat is moored in a beautiful creek and offers the best outoor life any angler or bird watcher can imagine. The creekside kitchen and dining area offer a fantastic view while enjoying the great fish and sea food meals you can simply catch yourself. At sea view level there's a social living room, kitchen and large studio bedroom. The spiral staircase leads you upstairs to the master bedroom and the twin bedroom.
With over two million acres of wetlands, hard wood and pine forests, this is the ultimate place to be for birds and bird watchers. The island of Andros is famous for it's wide variety of birds. During the annual Audubon Christmas count, birders can track many species of both local and migratory birds. Unique species like the Great Lizard Cuckoo Bird, the Piping Plover and the Andros Oriole are just some of the many specials birds that you really want to see during your stay.
We can't think of a better place to stay for anglers. The world famous flats offer fantastic fishing for permit, tarpon and of course the notorious bonefish. Even without a boat you can enjoy world class fishing, both flyfishing and spinning, wading for miles without seeing a single other angler. If you choose you can also use a kayak or rent a boat to go into deeper waters for great reef fishing. The owners will show you the right direction or hook you up with one of the finest fishing guides on the island.

This houseboat is the BEST!
Absolutely loved staying on the Houseboat!!!! NO complaints whatsoever!!! The moment we stepped inside and felt the breezes coming off Fresh Creek, I knew this was going to be an amazing place to stay. First of all, leading up to our trip Gabrielle was super helpful, answering tons of questions! When we got there, the Houseboat was extremely clean. Also, Gabrielle and Peter were very helpful and friendly! The Houseboat was AWESOME!! We loved laying out back at night on the loungers watching the stars! We loved sleeping in the comfortable bed and waking each morning to feel the ocean breezes! We loved eating breakfast out back the first morning as dolphins swam by! We loved snorkeling right off the boat and seeing a Spotted Eagle Ray! We cooked all our meals on the Houseboat. The kitchen had everything we needed. We did most all of our shopping at Mable's Meat Market which is very close. They are very friendly and helpful there! Tano (hope I am spelling that right) even taught me how to make a local favorite, Peas and Rice! To be honest, my wife was a bit skeptical about Andros Island in general. I booked the vacation as a surprise 40th birthday present. I was also somewhat undecided about which island to take her to. I originally felt Andros would be best, and once I found the Houseboat, that sealed the deal. Even then, she was skeptical. We have travelled quite a bit (Europe, French Polynesia, Hawaii), but from start to finish, this was the best 5 day vacation we've ever had!!! It was finally a vacation where we came back refreshed! It was also an UNPLUGGED vacation, something so many of us need!!! Andros was GREAT! We loved exploring the island! From Morgan's Bluff down to Behring Point and over to Red Bays. We checked it all out. We loved the blue holes and the deserted beaches, especially Somerset Beach. Fresh Creek was great for snorkeling and kayaking. So much to do!!! Plus, the people of Andros are so friendly and helpful!! Everyone waves and is more than happy to give directions and advice! As much fun as we had during the days, the best part was always coming back to the Houseboat!!! I found myself waking up earlier and earlier each day so I could not only enjoy the evenings, but the mornings as well. We just loved it there, and miss it so much! The Houseboat is the BEST. Thanks to Gabrielle and Peter for making it available and for being great hosts!!! We hope to see you again soon!!!

Great hosts, amazing place, fantastic houseboat!
We had an amazing time on the houseboat and on Andros in general! The location of the house is truly unique with incredible views. The sunsets are beautiful and the night sky has millions of stars. I loved waking up with the view over the creek - right from the bed. All sides of the house have a wooden decks with chairs, so if you want to sit in the sun or in the shade you will always find a place that suits you. There even is an outdoor deck with mosquito nets around it, so you can stay outside at night when insects are most active (but definitely bring spray too!) We loved swimming, fishing, kayaking etc. right from the house. You can explore Fresh Creek or any of the beautiful beaches in the area, most of the time you will have them all to yourself. We cooked ourselves almost every day, the fully equipped kitchen really had everything we needed. Grocery stores are close by, a 5-10 min drive by car. Don't expect a great variety of products, the best day is on Friday when the boat with fresh food arrives (so we heard). Don't expect a lot of luxury: bathrooms are basic but clean (with a slight scent to the water) and there is no AC (but lots of fans to keep you cool) or Wifi. Perfect to disconnect from the outside world and enjoy nature. Gabrielle was very helpful in answering any question we had and prepared lots of documentation on what to do / where to go.
