“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We could not have been more pleased with this lovely gem. The bungalow was clean and spacious. The pool was lovely. The location was close to everything and the best thing of all was the owner Sid. He made us feel so welcome and provided wonderful advice on local attractions and places to eat. We are looking forward to our next trip to visit Sid and stay with him in his little piece of paradise

We spent a couple of days in one of the 6 Lofty Fig Villas and were thrilled! The location was superb with all the best restaurants close by and the harbour right across the street. We could easily have stayed in one of several larger and better known hotels but we wanted to stay somewhere different and unusual. The "room" was well equipped not just with a bed and comfortable chairs but also with a fully equipped kitchen which was very convenient for our early morning breakfasts and cups of coffee; the full sized refrigerator was already stacked with water which was very convenient and we were able to keep our snacks fresh. The bathroom was comfortable and there was a lovely screened patio off the main room which faced out over the swimming pool where we had our nightcap both evenings. Sid is the proprietor and we had several long and interesting chats with him and he is full of knowledge about the Bahamas and not just the island of Abaco. The property is immaculate and had all the comforts of home including Wi - fi which was most useful.

Room Tip: Our villa had a screened porch - several of the other villas did not, so for that nightcap or early...

We loved our recent stay at Lofty Fig. The bungalow was spacious, very well maintained and exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. It had one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. I wish Sid had Lofty Fig's on all the Islands as we would stay there every time.

I recently finished a trip to Marsh Harbour and was lucky enough to choose The Lofty Fig. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and affordable. More over Sid (the owner), was extremely friendly and helpful with local advice.

I had an excellent stay and would like to thank Sid for assisting in this.

We did not even stay at Lofty fig Villas and still he showed us around town and even drove us to the supermarket. The place is located in the center of the town and the rooms are very nice with a pool just outside.

The Lofty Fig Villas was exactly what we were looking for on our recent trip to the Bahamas. While nothing in the Bahamas was inexpensive (at least to us as we travel mostly to Latin America), the Fig's rates were reasonable and the accommodations were excellent. Since the room had a small kitchen and the property had a nice grill, we were able to make several meals for ourselves saving us from some $16 cheeseburgers!

The room was was large enough to not feel congested in with a bed area, living area and small kitchen...and the bad was surprisingly really comfortable...which we don't find very often on our vacations! Sid was friendly and helpful as per all of the other reviews I'm sure you've read.

A few additional notes on Marsh Harbour you might find helpful. Marsh Harbour is really a hub to a bunch of attractions around Abaco. The Fig is right in the heart of the town. The main restaurants are all across the street, as is Diva Abaco as well as the ferry stop to Great Guana Cay (Nippers). With a rental car you can easily access Mermaid beach, Treasure Cay, and the ferry stops to Green Turtle Cay and Hope Town (Elboy Cay). Just stay on the left when driving!

Also be aware that the low season gradually extends throughout August. While having less crowds is nice, the downside is many of the restaurants close and it is harder to arrange group activities.

We recently stayed with Sid at the Lofty Fig. All the other reviews were spot on. Nice clean central location in Marsh Harbor. Its across the street from the marina, bars, restaurants, and a ferry pick up. The place was perfect for us. Peaceful and quiet but close enough to walk if you wanted to do things. Our only regret was a lot of places were closed due to our arriving after their regular season. Sid said their peak season winds down mid August. Sid was a wealth of info and an all around nice guy. We will stay there again when in the area. Thanks Sid!
