Are you looking for a once in a life time ( I am hoping for 3 or 4 more ) vaction? This is it !!. Be warn though this is not the type of vaction or place for those who want the fake and pampered place. South Andros is the real deal. It has the genuine local flair. Being picked up at the airport by Mrs V, being greated by Jesse , Chelsea, and Porter (owners) with coffee and fresh baked scones. Maggie cooking amazing local fresh sea food dishes for dinner. Roggie guiding us on a lobster and blue hole snokeling tour, sailing, sea kayaking, and just enjoying the quite island life. This was such a great overall experience for me and my family. We enjoyed the private beach and yes it is. We would only see a few other prople a day. Jesse was such a help with organizing all the things we wanted to do. I would recommend this experience to anyone who has a zest for the simple pure things in life. PS . Did I tell you that you get a great dog named duke that hang out with you? Awesome

The faciliti is very confortabile locate d on a long and beautiful beach: it is a peaceful paradise! We suggest it!
Jesse and Chelsea met us with fresh bread - a great start to a great trip. Very reachable and responsive on email (which you cannot say about a lot of places in the Bahamas), help organize logistics, were flexible and fun to be around!
Just returned from a 9 night stay at Andros Beach Club with my sister and her 2 adult girls. From the get go Jessie gets an A+ for communication. We started planning this trip in March and any questions were answered with clarity and very rapidly. We went for all the activities ABC had to offer except fishing. This time of year the weather is HOT and the water fantastically warm. But, we knew that going into it. The scuba diving was beautiful. Healthy coral reefs and good vis especially considering the high winds we experienced for a few days. The full moon was awesome as were the sunrises. It's a pleasure to witness and experience the way Chelsea and Jessie work together to make your stay a memorable one. They're both excellent cooks, hospitable, and go out of their way to accommodate any requests. Their 2 well cared for and very friendly dogs, Duke and Riley just add to the comfortable relaxed atmosphere of the place. The place is rustic, colorful, clean and comfortable with outstanding views and an amazingly beautiful beach all to yourself. I was particularly taken with the green/blue green color of the water and the lavender horizon. When the water was too rough to go out Jessie arranged an inland tour with Ed. The hike took us along a rustic path through the forest all the while Ed is pointing out which trees to touch or not to touch, plants used to make tea with etc. Also saw butterflies, egrets, huge ants nests and a gorgeous snake. Took a dip in one of the blue holes after which we ate fresh coconut water, coconut meat, and local fruit. That day was topped off with batiking our own fabric back at his wife Emily's studio. The following day Emily dyed and processed our fabric for us and Ed delivered it to us before our departure home. What's not to like about Andros Beach Club? Having to leave! Thanks for a wonderful vacation! Kitty T.
I am just returning from Andros Beach Club in South Andros and had a very pleasurable experience.. I have been fishing up on North Andros on multiple occassions... Needless to say, I was very eager for my first visit to South Andros... After some quick research, Andros Beach Club, became my choice.... Mostly in part to the immediate response from Jesse... We exchanged a few emails over a short period of time... The night before my departure, I got a phone call from Jesse, which I thought was very thoughtful and pretty cool... Jesse had arranged for car service to bring us to ABC... He also gave us some good advice to stop at the beverage depot on our quick ride down to ABC... Upon our arrival, we found a very cozy cottage... Our hosts, Jesse and Chelsea, were waiting for us and showed us around in short order... We settled in right away... On the beach, it felt as though we were on our own island... Having no phone service(which is a great thing) we were able to call back to the U.S from ABC whenever we wanted...For the most part, our days were spent away from the ABC fishing... Jesse drove us to and from the Driggs Hill dock, everyday to meet up with our fishing guide... We were fortunate to bring home fresh fish for meals... Oh the meals were great!!! Spiny Lobster with homemade pasta, Grilled Snapper with plantains, veggies and coconut milk, fried grouper, conch fritters and our last meal, a fresh snapper fish sandwich with bahamian cheddar on Chelsea's fresh bread... We had a hot breakfast every morning, to our request.... There was a cooler with food, drinks and snacks for us to take fishing.... Jesse and Chelsea took very good care of us... I felt a bit spoiled at times listening to music from the available Direct TV, while the sweet aroma from the kitchen wafted through our most humble abode...We got to play some poker and dominoes with Jesse and Chelsea...I'm pretty sure I was taken advantage of - HAHAHA!!!! Duke and Riley are a pair of the cleanest, friendliest and most relaxed dogs I've ever seen...I did not see one dog hair, anywhere... They are odorless, harmless and did i already say relaxed...All in all, we were very happy with the ABC... I hope you get the picture and even consider the ABC for a stop on South Andros
Myself and 2 dive buddies arrived on Andros Island and were greeted by The most friendly face in our cab driver. Upon arrival at the Andros Beach Club we were greeted by Jessie and Chelsea with the start of what would be the standard of hospitality. There was an amazing spin/art dip and the lovely golden bread the Chelsea bakes; and is famous for on the island. When it was mentioned to anyone they knew of her amazing knack for baking. Food is very important in a vacation for me, the Leapold's are wonderful cooks and even aren't too proud to ask for advice once hey found out that I had been in a chef for years. However; they did need my help to serve wonderful meals the entire time we were with them; just 4 days...not near enough time! As for the accommodations, the house was very comfortable and we were made to feel very much at home. Their home was our home, from the word go. The diving, is what brought us to Andros, was spectacular. Jessie made us very comfortable, and took us to dive sites at our choice. He would make sure that we were given options as to what we wanted to do and once we decided; he and his dive partner; Rogey made sure that we had the best time. They even took all of us spear finishing for our first time. We dove for conch, it was all an amazing experience, that I will be back to experience again!
Myself and 2 friends stayed at the Andros Beach Club in mid Ocotober for 4 days. Jesse and Chelsea were more than accomodating to us. We origninally sought out this area for scuba diving and relaxation. We found all this and more. The food prepared everyday was incredible. The diving experience was great. Catching your own food and having it prepared that same day, made for some great food as well. I can't say enough about how flexible Jesse and Chelsea were with whatever we decided to do each day and whatever time we decided to get around to doing it. They were truly a joy to meet and spend time with as well. I would highly recommend the Andros Beach Club to anyone looking to kick back, relax, scuba dive, fish, or explore a relatively untouched island in the Bahamas. I would best describe the Andros Beach Club as a Bed and Breakfast type atmosphere is a great location with all-inclusive type service.
I spent Thanksgiving week at the all inclusive Andros Beach Club with my closest friends and had the time of my life. The weather was amazing, with highs in the 80's and lows in the 70's, with a constant ocean breeze. We couldn't ask for better weather. The private beach was amazingly beautiful and serene. I really enjoyed taking walks along the beach with the dogs. The dogs were very well sweet and well behaved. Jesse and Chelsea were very accommodating. The food was amazing. I couldn't have dreamed of a better place to spend Thanksgiving, with a full homemade turkey dinner. The trip was full of wonderful dinners, lobster pasta with homemade garlic bread, homemade pizza, bohemian pigeon (which tasted way better then I thought it would). Chelsea is a wonderful cook and bakes the best bread in the world. At the local restaurant, right down the beach, I had a delicious and affordable lobster lunch. The trip was also full of adventures. Jesse was very professional and made me very comfortable on our dive trips. He certified me for scuba and now I can take that knowledge with me on future vacations. We snorkeled and scuba dived at these beautiful reefs and blue holes just a short boat ride off shore. I was amazed by the marine life and the beautiful coral. We took a hike to 3 inland blue holes, were we able to cliff jumped into the the last hole. I was a little nervous to jump at first, but that's the best part of adventure, overcoming the fear and doing it anyway. It was so fun i did it twice. This trip was the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. I highly recommend staying at Andros Beach Club for anyone who wants great food, and great adventure in one of the most beautiful and relaxing islands in the Bahamas. I hope to return as soon as possible. Thank you Jesse and Chelsea for the hospitality and hard work you put in to make our trip amazing.
Not only do you get to wake up and look at the beautiful beach and see the most gorgeous sunrises, but you also get to be stying with two wonderful people Jess and Chelsea. They are both very knowledgeable about every aspect of the island and showed us an amazing time and lots of very interesting new things to explore. Andros Beach club is perfect for whatever type of vacation you would like to take and was one of the best vacation spots i have ever experienced
I discovered Andros Beach Club via random chance (sometimes you should talk to the person in the seat next to you). My fiancé and I went to the Bahamas with no plan intact. We had our moment in touristy Nassau, and discovered that South Andros Island is exactly what the doctor ordered. Jesse and Chelsea are amazing hosts. Their relaxed nature, the excellent food, and their lovely beach dogs (hi duke and rileuy) were just a touch to the amazing house. We woke up every morning to the sun rising over the Ocean and into our room. The beach was miles of nothing and particularly gorgeous on a Blue Moon. We decided to get certified in Scuba with Jesse and had an amazing time. Jesse and Roggi took us to some amazing Blue Holes. The coral is spectacular and the creatures were gorgeous. On our route back, Roggi caught us some lobster and conch (which made an amazing meal that night). We had an amazing time, and we really want to head back to try our hand at spearfishing!
South Andros and the Andros Beach Club were exactly what I needed, quiet relaxing time away, white sand beaches, friendly people and adventure. Jesse made sure I was safe, secure and had everything I needed for a perfectly relaxing, no stress 2 week get away. I have been around the world with all the hussle and bustle but Andros was calm, enveloping, endearing with kind Bahamians and pure pleasure. I will return one day and highly reccommend this location to anyone wanting a combination of relaxation and adventure.
Andros Beach Club is a real getaway. Totally unplugged (although there is internet and Direct TV if you want it), which gives you time to really enjoy the beauty of the island. One of the best beaches I have been to- great for running, swimming, snorkeling, and bonefishing. Jesse and Chelsea are great hosts- there when you need them, and they have great connections on the island to get you what you need and want. Duke and Riley (their dogs) were very entertaining and provide companionship on beach walks! The local residents are amazingly friendly and helpful.

"We Love the Andros Beach Club"
We have stayed at Andros Beach Club during our last three of the five times that we have visited South Andros Island. This place offers the most pleasurable vacation of any private home that we have rented since we started "island hopping" many years ago. The house has always been clean, comfortable, and has what is needed for a great vacation. It is located on the most beautiful beach on the island, it offers privacy, and it is near a grocery market, restaurants, etc... The owner has enhanced this original fishing lodge with modern conveniences while preserving the charm and spirit of the island.
The owner and the staff have always been available, gracious, and willing to help make the vacation as enjoyable as possible. We have always gone there with the intention of taking advantage of the numerous activities that are available but always end up just being happy, lazy beach bums.
Our last trip was in September '07 but our favorite month to be there is December. Don't be concerned about booking a trip at this place during the "weather weary" months. In all of our visits to South Andros, we have only had one day that kept us off of the beach due to bad weather. This is a great year-round piece of paradise to enjoy.
The owner also offers an advanced multi-week booking discount. This is a great way to avoid those "increase-in-rate surprises" as with other properties. We took advantage of this package and love knowing that we can enjoy Andros Beach Club, and all the natural beauty that makes it spectacular, for many weeks to come. The best compliment that we can truly offer is that Andros Beach Club is exactly as advertised.
