When we built Mangrove Cay, our goal was to set the standard for comfort for a bonefishing lodge in the Bahamas. Our eight suites sit within 4 large bungalows spread out along the shore, screened from each other by a lush growth of trees. All are a short walk on a sand path to the main lodge.
Each of the four bungalows is divided into two suites, separated by a thick soundproof wall. The suites have high cypress ceilings and ceiling fans, an air conditioned bedroom, a sitting room, an oversized bathroom and a private porch overlooking the ocean. We accommodate a maximum of 16 guests, a comfortable number to ensure high quality service and personal attention.
On the outside wall of each suite is a rod rack that will hold four rods, a bucket for soaking reels and a convenient freshwater hose for washing rods and all other equipment each day. Both outside and inside the entrance are hooks for wet clothes and gear.
The sitting room is furnished with a sofa and chair and some small tables providing the space for laying out tackle and equipment. Fresh ice and bottled drinking water are placed in your suite each day.
Each bathroom has its own 40 gallon water heater so there is never a shortage of hot water. The bathroom has lots of shelf, counter and hanging space and a very large walk-in shower with shelving for shampoos, razors, etc. We provide abundant towels, waffle weave bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bath soaps, hair dryer and bug spray.
The air conditioned bedroom is off of the sitting room through double sliding doors and contains a bureau, a wardrobe, a night table and two queen size beds facing the sea. There are sliding doors from the bedroom out to the porch and padded lounge chairs. You can greet the day and check out the weather without seeing another guest or having to get dressed.
For too long, bonefishing in the Bahamas has required spartan accommodations. Mangrove has changed that. Our lodging is very comfortable and allows you plenty of privacy and comfort during the non-fishing hours of your stay.
