We had a very relaxing stay at Dolphin Lookout. The property is exactly as described in the many reviews we read before booking - it has an outstanding location at the Southern tip of Guana Cay, looking over to Scotland Cay, with fabulous views from the deck. The property itself is small, more like a studio apartment, but as spacious as a nice hotel suite. And there is plenty of space on the deck to just sit/lie down and chill. We tended to eat out at lunch time and relax at Dolphin Lookout in the evenings, and take a night cap sitting under a palm tree and marvel at the night sky (tip: use starwalker app or similar on ipad to see what all those constellations are). Our strategy of staying home paid off on new year's eve, when the beach on Scotland Cay hosted an elaborate 20-minute firework display at 9pm. They must be a family friendly lot on that private island to have the fireworks so early, and we were certainly grateful for what felt like a show put on just for us at Dolphin Lookout! We enjoyed leaving the blinds open and waking up to glorious dawn skies. Our pilates teacher would have been proud of us as every day we strolled down to the boat dock and did our "boat dock" pilates session - always on the look out for Bob the Barracuda, who often turned up as we arrived. The restaurants are not outstanding, nor should they be when you consider the constraints of island life, but we were not disappointed. We particularly enjoyed eating at Orchid Bay. I would say they had the best and friendliest service and the verandah is lovely to sit on and watch all the boating activity as you dine. The wifi worked very well, and we put it to good use, not for browsing, but for listening to Spotify using the aux cable connected to the mini hi-fi system. We also had a few movie nights on Netflix and again used the aux cable, to deliver a nice surround-sound experience. It's certainly a good idea to buy groceries at Marsh Harbor as the local store is very limited but does have all the basics. But the best place to buy dinner is straight from the dock near the liquor store. We didn't have enough cash one day and the the local ATM was closed for business (i.e. Grabbers) - but we were able to buy some nice large cray fish tails for $6 and three bottles of local beer! Our favourite activity was just to relax and enjoy the stunning Cay Sera beach where we hardly saw another soul. A fabulous escape.
This was our second time staying at Dolphin Lookout and it was every bit as lovely as the first.
Our first visit included a large family group scattered in different homes on the island for my husband's 50th in July 2015. This was a very different visit and so nice, just the two of us. We spent lots of time reading on the front deck surrounded by the most gorgeous views I've encountered. It's so private and detached from everything while only a fun cart ride into the settlement and Nippers :)!
Caysera Beach is not only a beautiful, private beach but the snorkeling is awesome with a reef right off the beach. Being able to snorkel in December without a wet suit was a nice surprise!
Lots of walks on the little poured cement stepping stones to watch the waves crash against the rocks. It was mesmerizing. The small clearing at the edge of the southeast part of the property, where the adirondack chairs sit, is a perfect spot to check out the stars on a clear evening.
There are a couple of little trails besides the one leading to the dock that offer different views of the water and are worth checking out.
We joined the golf cart parade and had a ball with other locals, all dressed in their ugly sweaters and decked out carts. It ended, after several stops, at Nipper's for live music and incredible fireworks on the beach. I would highly suggest going over the Holidays but not next Christmas and New Years' Eve as we just booked it, sorry!!
I was happy to see the large barracuda still lives under the dock. We did not kayak this time, but if the winds are coming out of the right direction, kayaking is a must-do. They have all the equipment you need for a day on the beach or on the kayaks.
Dolphin Lookout is immaculately kept and they have basically everything you need there. The people on this island are lovely. We made several new friends :).
We counted in our heads about 18 islands we've visited over the years from the South pacific, and through all of the Caribbean; this is our favorite spot!
We cannot say enough about Dolphin Lookout! We spent a week there and were amazed every single day - not just by the beautiful scenery (as expected in the Abacos!) but by the location, privacy, and amazing craftsmanship of Dolphin Lookout. The house is incredibly well built and maintained. It takes a number of days to find and appreciate all the details that goes into this home and the care that is taken in keeping it up. From our booking, to preparation for trip, to arrival and the assistance of Gina as host, to cooperation with travel delays due to weather - the experience was first class and exceptional. This is the pinnacle of what rental by owner aims to deliver - Bravo!!
The seclusion of Dolphin Lookout provides complete privacy, unmatched and breath taking beauty, and relaxation at a level that is only believed through experiencing it. Being on the tip of the Great Guana Cay provides access to both the deeper ocean and Sea of Abaco access while still allowing access to the town of Guana Cay and the ability to explore the island. The Guide to Dolphin Lookout provided once booked lists important information that makes preparation easier and provides excursion suggestions to get you started on discovering the island and all its secret spots of beauty.
We will, without a doubt, be planning a return trip very soon. If you are looking for beautiful island scenery, complete privacy, and relaxation then we cannot recommend Dolphin Lookout enough.
Thank you so much for sharing your spot of paradise with us!!!!
Cozy second story cottage-for-two on the very South end of Great Guana Cay with a fabulous 270 degree unobstructed view of unimaginably turquoise tropical waters. You won’t find a better deck view and atmosphere for relaxing with your morning coffee, or chillin in the evening with your favorite wine, beer or cocktail reminiscing about your days adventures. Inside the cottage you will find a super-comfortable queen size bed located next to a large screened window where you will quickly learn to love falling asleep and awaking to gentle sea breezes and the sound of rhythmic crashing waves. Heavenly. The full size kitchen is equipped with everything you may need if you opt for an intimate candlelight diner for two. The cottage is accessible only by golf cart and is hundreds of yards from the closest neighboring beach house, so if you are looking for privacy, this is the place for you. Within a short golf cart ride is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, with marshmallow soft sand, picture perfect views, and usually no one else on the beach but you. And yes, wifi service in the cottage works well if you feel compelled to share photos with friends. If there is a heaven on earth, this may be it!
My husband and I just got back from a week at Dolphin Lookout! It was the perfect place for us! Charming, quiet, and clean on the inside, and great views and adventure on the outside. We had everything we needed for a wonderful week. The Atlantic was too rough for snorkeling while we were there, but the Sea of Abaco (just down the path with a private dock) was perfect--it was calm and there was lots to see with very easy access! If we had been staying almost anywhere else, my husband would've been very disappointed with not being able to snorkel. So, thank you Ben, the place is exactly as you say it is! We loved it!
Words cannot begin to describe our experience. It was quiet, beautiful, and simply paradise. The view from anywhere in the house was fantastic.
Ben sent us great checklists so we knew what do to to prepare for the trip and everything worked out great. The caretakers met us at the ferry and made sure we had everything we needed.
