After searching 20 years for the “perfect paradise,” the owners of Cayo Loco said they immediately knew that this was it when they stumbled upon this property, complete with one of the world’s most stunning beaches.
Ideal for honeymooners and all types of romance-seeking couples, rent one or both of the two brightly colored eco-friendly luxury beachfront homes that are right on a stretch of pink sands contrasting beautifully against the brilliant blue of the sea. Each one sleeps up to two guests so up to four can be accommodated or as many as six by renting the main residence too.
The crew of the Netflix series “The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals” fell head over heels, featuring Cayo Loco on Season 2, Episode 2 as the best budget option, and when you see it, you’ll be surprised at just how affordable luxury can be.
Some guests have remarked that they’ve been “ruined for any other beaches after living with the most beautiful water with the most dazzling array of colors right in front of their house.”
While the cottages have a classic “old Bahamian beach house” feel, they were recently built, designed to maximize views of the waves and the crescent-shaped pink sand beach. You might think you’ve somehow landed on an entirely different planet as it’s one of the rare places where you might spend your entire getaway without seeing another soul.
The beach is ideal for tranquil strolls as you’ll be able to walk in either direction for miles – or step into the crystal-clear blue water to swim, snorkel, fish, paddleboard, kayak, or boogie board right outside your door.
Your host provides complimentary snorkel gear, paddleboards, surfboards, and kayaks.
A “workation” here would be the quintessential working vacation – can you imagine enjoying breaks in between work by swimming in that water? Just taking your gaze off the screen occasionally to take in the jaw-dropping scenery would be worth booking this place.
While you might feel like you’re thousands of miles from the “real world,” within a five-minute walk along the beach you’ll find a small resort with a fantastic little restaurant for dining, drinking, and dancing along with a pool and Jacuzzi. If you’ve got a car, a short drive will bring you to more venues, including shops, restaurants, and hotspots for live music and dancing.
Afterward, come back for some of the world’s best stargazing.
The show featured Cayo Loco as an ideal spot for a destination wedding, and it truly is, but it’s an enchanting place for just about any type of getaway or celebration from honeymoons, birthdays, and anniversaries to proposals.
While this home is all about enjoying the views and taking advantage of the outdoors, you’ll have all you need inside too. In fact, you’ll enjoy an ocean view from every room along with an HDTV, high-speed Wi-Fi, a full kitchen, king-size pillowtop bed, spa bathrobes, and air conditioning.
If waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves sounds like your kind of dream, you can book Cayo Loco via Airbnb.
