New Outdoor Showers!!!

At the suggestion of two guests, Jeff has decided to install outdoor showers outside of each cabin. They are very spacious and have hot and cold water, along with two waterfall shower heads each. What better way to take a shower after a long day of diving fishing or relaxing than looking out at lovely Calabash Bay with the family or a loved one?

Hurricane Joaquin

While we keep the Central Bahamas, Bermuda, and everyone else affected by Hurricane Joaquin in our thoughts, we are happy to say that Small Hope Bay lodge and the rest of Andros Island has survived the storm without any major damage. Jeff gave everybody Friday and Saturday off to prepare for the storm, but the worst weather we got was fifteen mph winds and a few brief showers. So, we were able to spend our days off relaxing, enjoying some time with the family, or playing poker and eating Erin's delicious food in the lodge.
Now that the Hurricane Joaquin is continuing to head North, we have some more flat seas and another beautiful day in paradise.

Closing Time

It's closing time once again here at Small Hope Bay, which means we have temporarily closed the hotel to take care of any maintenance needs that require attention. While the bay is quite without any visitors, we have been keeping ourselves busy to pass the time. Fedor and the maintenance crew have been working hard to refurbish the cabins and repaint the bathrooms so you will have a comfortable and cozy room next time you come to visit. Fede and Dennis have been servicing and recalibrating every tank, BCD, and regulator on the dock. It's amazing how well a regulator breaths after it has been given the time and attention that Fede and Dennis have been giving them. Our friend Patrick is visiting from Canada to renew our electrical systems. Even though we have been able to power the entire resort off a generator when the power on the island goes out, the new system will be more energy efficient and will allow us to install more solar panels in the future. While all of this is very tiering, Dania has been keeping our spirits high by making delicious meals every day, keeping our stomachs full and our smiles constant.
As always, the Weather is wonderful and Andros is beautiful, but the guests are what make Small Hope Bay Lodge special, so we can't wait to say hello to all of the returning guests and meet anybody who has not had the chance to visit us yet.

Preparation for Tropical Storm Erika

Tropical Storm Erika 
Small Hope Bay Lodge 

In wake of tropical storm Erika, we are working hard to secure your home away from home. Currently the storm is predicted to move southwest of Andros. We have a strong belief that we will not be impacted severely , however mother nature cannot be predicted so we are taking the necessary precautions. 
Jeff has cancelled all check-ins, and closed the resort for the weekend. The team is busy ensuring that our 55 year old baby is well protected to ride the storm out. 
For all of our guests in the eye of the storm, be safe! 
We will be back up and running on Monday, until then we will be partying the storm out.

Mixer Vow Renewal

Susan & Robert Mixer 

Susan and Bob Mixer have been visiting Small Hope Bay Lodge for over 20 years. This year they returned to celebrate their wedding anniversary and vow renewal. The ceremony was beautiful, Small Hope's north beach made a beautiful setting for such a spectacular evening occasion. Guest, family, and friends all looked on to witness the re commitment of love. It was a magical moment as Reverend Hamilton officiated over the ceremony. The Mixer's friends MaryKay and Tom stood as witnesses during the ceremony. We would like to thank the Mixers for celebrating their anniversary with us here at Small Hope Bay, and we wish them 36 more. Check out our 'Romance' packages at
