“Perfect antidote to Nassau”
Reviewed 14 May 2007

Joan and Mickey made us very welcome on Andros and at the Seascape. After a week in Nassau, with the cruise-ships and tourist traps, we felt like we'd found the real Bahamas.

Getting there from Nassau was easy, Western Air's short flight proved reliable. Booking from home wasn't possible because of their cash-only policy, but they gave us a reference and we paid at the airport.

Our cabana was bright and airy and very clean, plenty big enough for the two of us. Sitting on the deck, watching the local lizards, hummingbirds and other wildlife was very relaxing and made for some great photos.

When all that gets too much, you must get yourself a Mickey Map and explore one of the blue-holes. The free canoes make exploring the quiet sea a doodle. It's very flat and shallow and beautifully clear, which makes for some great snorkeling. Or you can jump on the bikes and head to the inland lake and maybe spot the barracuda. While you're out, don't forget to pop in at Boston's Hot Spot for some local food and a good chat with the locals over a Kalik.

After a hard day relaxing, dinner or some drinks at the bar were always interesting. We loved the hosts stories about island life and the Bahamas.

You'll have to not mind the dogs, they're playful, but kept under control and out of the guests way must of the time. The bikes might be a bit rusty and basic, but Andros is flat and not that big, so they're just the job for getting about. If you want full service or organised trips, it's probably not the place for you, but if you want to change down a few gears, it's spot on.

My husband and I stayed at the lovely Seascape Inn in early Feb 2007 for just 6 days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It would have been hard not to do so, since we were the only ones there for most of our stay. Joan and Mickey were always ready to assist us, telling us where to go for some good snorkeling, finding local open restaurants (not always easy; but when you do they are great and the local people are very friendly). Plus Mickey and Joan are just wonderful people, and we had a great time watching the Super Bowl with them, their four dogs and some of their friends from the island. The area is beautiful, and very tranquil.
Mickey and Joan are amazing cooks! You can ask Mickey to cook you steaks, rocklobsters (I had it for my bday, yumm!), and even pizza and home made chocolate ice cream (for my husband's bday, double yumm). Of course, you can't start your day of activities without a good breakfast --home baked muffins and fresh fruits!! Thanks Joan!!
It's hard to believe that they can keep up with such great service and accomodations knowing that they have to wait for the delivery boats to come from the big island (not always reliable from what they told us).
The cabin that we stayed in was lovely, crisp and clean; the breeze always flowing through the room. I think that my husband may complain about only one thing... having to scream being scared by a frog in the toilet bowl lol One of the funniest moment of our stay on Andros!! I did have to check with Mickey to see if it was okay to flush ... it was.
They were not using their diving boat and I think were planning on getting a different one. Not a big deal for us, we just took the kayaks and went snorkeling by the island off-shore, an inland blue hole (and I can confirm that I still have all my toes and fingers after swimming with the barracuda), etc. We brought our own gear, but did not use our lycra dive skins (maybe I should have it can get pretty cold by the blue holes!)
Overall an amazing experience and we got exactly what we were looking for. This is not a place for people who need tons of different organized activities! I definitively hope to go back soon to Andros!

Great all the way around. Secluded beachfront location, Mickey & Joan are fantastic (as are their four dogs), free kayaks, bikes & snorkel gear, great price ($140/night and they leave the tips up to you). Especially after meeting several people complaining about their stays at Atlantis, Breezes and our disappointing stay at the British Colonial Hilton, I knew we made the right choice. Easily accessible by 20 minute plane ride from Nassau.

We were lured to the Seascape by wide open beaches and the promise of diving in beautiful blue waters as shown on their web site. We made it very clear in our emails that we were coming to dive and relax on the beach. We arrived to find out the dive master’s boat had been broken down for months and the dive master had recently had surgery and was not sure if he could even take us out. We did dive one day off of a fishing boat with leaky regulators, BC’s in need of repair, and a grumpy dive master. It’s hard to say what the worst feature of the Seascape is. Is it the noseeums that ravaged us in the dining room/bar the first night of our stay that left welts for the remainder of our trip? Maybe the dirty beach with water that ranges from 2 to 5 feet deep for at least 100 yards off shore? How about the junk bicycles (all in need of repair) supplied as the only form of transportation? We really want to thank Micki and Joan for their lack of interest in us as guests and the minimal amount of time they spent showing us good places to snorkel. The Seascape is the next best thing to camping in the jungle.

  • Liked — Fresh baked goods for breakfast

We spent 7 nights at the Seascape Inn last May, and I will never forget it. It was well worth the money. The dinners at the resort were outstanding. Good food and lots of it. The proximity to the blue holes was the best feature, and free kayaks and bicycles made it easy to get around. The fishing was awesome. The other guests made it a real trip to remember - an interesting mix of adventurers. I don't think many families with children would stay there, but don't let me dissuade you. The rooms were very clean. Although, the insect life in the area is abundant to say the least. :) I can't think of anything bad to say of the resort that they can fix. The environment is pretty wild and they are not responsible for the bugs. The really special thing about a trip to Mangrove Cay is the friendliness of the people of Andros. Nowhere else have I been welcomed and befriended by complete strangers as if I was part of their family or had lived there all my life. I love the Bahamas, and the combination of Mangrove Cay and Seascape Inn was truly a memorable, pleasant vacation.
My wife got a little bored, though. Well, there it is. Honest and true.

We had the most relaxing time at the SeascapeInn. It is absolutely charming. The owners, Joan & Mickey were incredibly friendly, helpful and wonderful chefs. The food was fabulous, with large portions. It was such a pleasure to get away from computers and phones and even clocks.
Our children were facinated by the tides (we live in a land-locked state). Joan & Mickey were kind enough to turn out the lights at night, so we could see the stars. Their restaurant clientelle were so nice.

The beach is clean, clean and the water is clear, clear. The snorkeling was wonderful.

This is the place to go if you enjoy peace and quiet in a tropical setting. Mickey and Joan are very accomodating and good folks. The views are outstanding as are the diving and fishing. Bonefishing flats within walking distance. The accomodations are comfortable and clean. There is not much to do outside of the Seascape, but the people are friendly and there are a few unassuming conch stands and grocery stores here and there. Don't pet the black dog by the Seamans club.
Not for the club med crowd, definitely for the adverturous type.
