Matthew Town, Great Inagua Island, Bahamas
This is your only option for a room with a water view, and a great place to watch sunsets. The two spacious apartments sit next to a rocky shoreline on Matthew Town's southern side. The cement units all have modern Caribbean-style terra-cotta tile floors, rattan furniture, small terraces, a picnic area, and a gas grill. At low tide, there's a nice sandy beach next to the apartments, and about a five-minute walk away is a small secluded beach called the Swimming Hole. Ezzard Cartwright, the owner, is the only fly-fishing guide on the island. He's usually out working, so calling after 7 pm Bahamas time is the best chance to reach him. The apartments are usually fully booked October to June so reserve early.
