Overlooking the ocean and fresh creek which feeds an extensive inland flats system sits this four bedrooms private home. The Coakley House rests on a point surrounded by water on three sides, and the settlement of Fresh Creek on the backside. The three master suites all have king beds and private bathrooms. There is an additional bunk room for four guests in two bunk beds. There are spacious living and dining rooms that overlook the water for interior social spaces. The up-to-date kitchen is perfect for preparing meals. The outside patio offers expansive views of the ocean and creek. You will find lounge chairs, BBQ grill, and fire pit a perfect setting for intimate group gatherings. A dock and small cove allow for swimming, but there are numerous pure white sand beaches within a 15-minute drive. Night fishing for resident tarpon is a prime activity from the dock.
Food and Beverages
Meals are prepared for you by a local chef, or you may choose to cook on your own. There is a local grocery store with limited supplies. The liquor store is just a few blocks away in Fresh Creek. Typically prepared meals are fresh seafood consisting of snapper, mahi-mahi, grouper, wahoo, conch, and spiny lobster. Fresh vegetables, soups, and salads accompany all meals. Breakfast is cooked to order: eggs, bacon, and your choice of pancakes or traditional Bahamian grits. Lunches are customized, but typically sandwiches are prepared.
Typical Length of Stay
Trips of any length are available, and the convenience of the Bahamas makes the Coakley House the perfect getaway for a week-long excursion or just a quick weekend escape.
Non-Angling Activities & Options
The Coakley House is surrounded by the natural wonders of Andros Island, otherwise known as the “Big Yard.” Once you drive out of the settlement of Fresh Creek, you will find pristine beaches for beachcombing. There are minimally organized eco-activities based out of the Coakley House, but snorkeling and dive excursions may be arranged at Small Hope Bay Lodge which is only 20 minutes away. The private patio is ideal for those seeking a quiet, private setting to enjoy a good book or just take in the vast ocean views.
