This was our fourth trip to Marsh Harbour/Eastern Shores, and Lowtide met all expectations. The property was immaculate and the caretaker called shortly after our arrival to be sure we had everything we needed. Owner Tammi Smith was helpful with recommending AirGate Aviation out of New Smyrna Beach as well as referring us to Taxi 11, Jeff Key, for pickup at the Marsh Harbour airport. We rented a boat from the nice folks at Water Ways Boat Rental on Man 'o War and it was delivered right to our dock. (Moor your boat just as suggested by the instructions in the room.) Take a flashlight because the electric power in the Abacos is apt to fail one or more times.
Caught fish for dinner and snorkeled on the reefs.
I recommend this property for couples looking for privacy and convenience, with restaurants and other amenities just a boat or taxi ride away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look forward to returning. It was very private yet close enough to walk or a short cab ride to all of Marsh Harbor. We enjoyed the private beach and the dock for the boat that we rented.
Low Tide exceeded our expectations! This location is convenient but so quiet and peaceful.
We were the only folks in the water 99% of the time. There is a beautiful reef you can walk to on the sea of Abaco side. Beautiful island view with rocky islands out the main south side. Marsh Harbor is such a sweet town. The people were very kind and helpful throughout the island. Rent bikes and snorkel gear and you're done!
My wife and I had a wonderful week at Lowtide. For the money, I don't think it is possible to find a more amazing place to stay. It was really great waking up every morning and seeing the beautiful sea right outside our door. We ate many meals right on our private deck overlooking the water. We also loved the private beach in front of the house with crystal clear water, and even snorkeled on the little reef that you can practically walk to during low tide. We got to see a few amazing sunsets where the sun melted into the sea!
The house itself is cute and cozy, like a honeymoon cottage. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The property was very clean and well maintained. All of the pictures listed are very accurate. Although we did not get to meet Tammi in person, she was always very helpful with any questions we had over email.
Abaco is an amazing place.. all of the people we met were extremely friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend getting a boat or taking ferries to some of the other islands on your visit. The water is the greatest treasure in Abaco. It is also worth the trip to Treasure Cay to enjoy the day on pristine white sand beaches with turquoise water. We look forward to coming back to Lowtide again.
We recently stayed at Lowtide at the end of April for 10 days. The place is perfect for 2 people. It is very clean and has everything you need. The location is spectacular. The views are great, right at the waters edge and the location out on the Eastern Shore is the best place in the Marsh Harbor area. The dockage set up is great if you have a boat or want to rent one which is very easy to do. The covered deck overlooking the water is a great feature. The owners live in the main house on the property and were a wealth of knowledge on the area. It is a great place and we will be back!
What a fantastic place! It was recently built and the owners keep the place SPOTLESS! It is very well equipped - they seemed to have thought of everything. If you want your own music, there is a unit with a CD player, radio and input for an Ipod. It worked great!
Everything in the description and photos was 100% accurate. The owners (Tammi and Fred) live in another house on the property. They are sort of in the background and we felt alone unless we sought them out. They have lived there for years and are a great resource for guidance, recommendation and information.
The view from the porch is to die for! We ate breakfast and dinner on the porch every day. Lunch we ate at one of the other cays.
The property is situated on a peninsula in a private community. The road runs along the water and is beautiful for taking long walks. The other residents are warm and welcoming and we always felt safe even at night on the road.
Since the Abacos are a group of islands or cays, to really see them you need a boat or you can take the Albury ferry which is just down the road from the house.
We rented a boat from Water Ways, which they delivered and picked up. You really need a boat to get around. Fred is a wealth of information on the area and if you are into fishing (we are not) well, that's his passion. Rely on his advice.
Our 18' Whaler which was fine, but the locally-made Albury boats handle much better in the short chop they have there. We tied the boat up at the dock right in front of the house. It was really convenient. The cays are really close together so there is no problem with navigation.
Lowtide is located about 4 miles from the airport. We took a cab on arrival and departure. The rest of the time we went into town in the boat. We brought our own meat frozen with us hearing that the quality is not what it is here. No hassles whatsoever bringing it in. You may have sticker shock at food and fuel prices but remember that the Bahamas imports almost everything and levies a duty on it. Soda, crackers, snacks are VERY expensive. Liquor is cheap. Plan accordingly!
We loved the "restaurants" on the other cays, i.e. Nippers, Jacks, Grabbers, Cracker P's, Curly Tails, etc. There is an extensive three ring binder at Lowtide that the owners have put together. It's full of info on everything you could ever want to know about the area and attractions.
We'd recommend Lowtide to anyone. We are already planning to go back again next April.
