    Crow's Nest, a non-smoking rental, will accommodate 4 to 6 people. There are several good coral reefs for snorkeling within swimming distance of our dock. Also, diving and spearfishing are among the many activities available.

    A D D I T I O N A L     I N F O:

    Crow's Nest became our call sign because of the 6-person lookout that is firmly secured to the peak of our roof. From there, you can oversee the Atlantic Ocean, ships at sea, Little Harbour, Abaco Sound, Old Robinson's Bight and the Little Harbour Bar. (The Little Harbour Bar is what the locals call the ocean inlet. That is definitely not to be confused with Pete's Pub, the open air, sand-floored watering hole and fine dining emporium that is safely located on the other side of the harbour.

    Crow's Nest is sited on a 2-acre cross section of "Tom Curry's Point" which forms the western arm of Little Harbour. Our point ends as a limestone cliff that is a nesting preserve for a colony of beautiful White Tailed Tropicbirds.

    On the East Side, of our property we have a dock and small breakwater at the mouth of Little Harbour, looking towards the ocean, harbor and sunrises. To the west we have a tiny beach that looks out a mile or two across the bay of "Old Robinson's Bight" and farther on to the blue holes, herons and sunsets.

    At Crow's Nest, your electricity comes from the sun, your water comes from the sky and your food comes from the sea (provided you are a lucky fisherman, of course, otherwise it will come from the grocery stores in Marsh Harbour or Cherokee and lunches, Fish Feasts and Pig Roasts at Pete's Pub).

    When we began to build , in the 70's, there were no wells, power lines, telephone lines or roads. The only access was by water and all building materials had to be sailed down on the deck of our sailboat. Nowadays it's relatively easy to get to Crow's Nest as you can drive directly from the Marsh Harbour International Airport right up to our front door in about 45 minutes.

    Our self-contained photovoltaic power system includes an inverter to provide 120 volt household power for any reasonable needs. It is a powerful enough system that we used it to supply 90% of the energy used to construct Crow's Nest. Please keep in mind that excessive and indiscriminate use of lights, appliances and especially hair dryers might eventually overtax the battery bank, especially during overcast weather. Common sense will insure plenty of renewable solar generated power.

    Crow's Nest is a very carefully crafted timber frame home built from old growth Douglas Fir and Red Cedar. The gracefully curved knee braces prompted one construction site visitor to inquire as to the denomination of the church that we apparently were building. In these photos taken during building, we have placed the traditional branch at the peak. Our extra care seems to have paid off as CrowsNest has, so far, shrugged off hurricane wind speeds of up to 185 MPH as measured by the US Navy when the eye of Hurricane Floyd made landfall at Little Harbour in 1999. Except for about 6 feet of missing rain gutter and some loss of gray weathering on our cedar shingles, we were pleasantly surprised to find Crow's Nest was not bothered by the power of that storm. Our missing dock and oceanside vegetation was a different story. In the spring of 2000 we were able to replace the missing dock with an improved version that will hopefully last for another 20 years or so.
