About the neighbourhood
This apartment was built and tastefully furnished in 2015, and is in the detached guest wing of a private home, Halcyon, on an old Bahamian estate. The property is on the brow of a hill, where it is constantly cooled by tropical breezes and has magnificent views of the entire length of Elizabeth Harbour. It is a 6-minute walk to George Town, the capital of the island, with its shops, local straw market, restaurants, boat rentals and water taxi to the outlying islands. An equally short walk in the opposite direction takes you to an area known as the 'Fish Fry', a group of quaint local 'shack' restaurants built on the seashore and waiting to serve you tasty Bahamian cuisine. If you just want to spend some time on a soft sandy beach, one is only 100 metres from Halcyon, at the bottom of the hill, a minute's walk away, and others are nearby. Though easy to find, the unit is completely private with its own entrance and has a covered porch letting on to the garden. There is ample parking for cars and a car rental is recommended for exploring the island, although not absolutely necessary. Halcyon Garden Cottage is within easy walking distance of most local shopping, eating and entertainment. This place is so comfortable you won't want to leave!
