Rental Description

The owners of Bonefish Cay have spared neither expense nor energy in transforming this once deserted island into an exclusive, first class, Private Island retreat.

Villas
In two villas we have an owner’s suite and six additional suites. In the caretakers villa there is an extra suite available, which gives a total of 8 double suites with modern bathrooms, which can accommodate up to 16 people. The 750 sq. ft. owner’s suite contains a unique central glass shower as well as a bathtub for two, all in a setting of pink granite imported from Brazil. The over-sized king bed overlooks the Gulf of Abaco. This suite offers a dressing room, separate toilet/bidet facility and has its own private telephone, fax and internet service. Beautiful furniture and many fine art works from all over the world complete the decoration. The interior architect selected an individual style and color harmony for each suite.

Main Lodge
In the dining area the very long glass table seats 14 (or 18 with four acrylic padded folding chairs). Breakfast, lunch and dinner have all got different linen and porcelain (some porcelain was specially made for Bonefish Cay). The tableware and silverware will honor the work of any chef!
The 30 foot high cathedral ceilings made of cypress wood lend majesty to the main house. The center of the main lodge is the 28 ft. fully equipped maple bar. The beautiful 9 ft. maple pool table and the poker table (with a bumper/pin-pool table inside), as well as the DJ sound system, light machine, karaoke machine, guarantee entertainment! The very comfortable TV area offers a large Philips TV screen, Bose home theater, direct TV and 120 DVD movies.

Gym
Bonefish Cay has a fully equipped gym with views over the Sea of Abaco, also table tennis, volley ball equipment, beach games, etc.

Jetty
The jetty – 200 ft. long and 10 ft. width – was built strong enough to support a loaded truck with cement.
A remote control system allows the captain approaching the island to command generators and boat-lifts from his boat. Two high capacity boat-lifts and a davit boat-lift allow boats and passengers to board the island in very comfortable and safe conditions.

 

Attractions & Activities

The Island
Bonefish Cay has two long, sandy beaches and paths over the island. There are many shells and native plants, so the scenery makes for a lovely stroll. Take a swim at low tide around the island's own coral reef and see the multitude of coral and fish. Or you can paddle out in ocean-going kayaks and see dolphins. The area around Bonefish Cay is famous as a fisherman's paradise.
There are many (high) trees and very dense vegetation on this 13.5 acre island as well as large areas of grassland. Approximately two thirds of this island are a natural bird sanctuary. Many birds live in this “untouched” part of Bonefish Cay, from honeybee birds to pelicans. A discovery trail goes all around the island … for nature lovers or J Pod runners!
The south beach is the “lounge chair” beach. The west and north beaches are also spectacular. From the north side of the island to the coral barrier there are several square miles of unspoiled coral reef and sea (max 15 ft. deep), which is the absolute paradise for snorkeling and diving in crystal clear water. The big fish are right behind the barrier. You can take the kayaks and meet the very present dolphins in the Gulf of Abaco.
