Overview & Photos


This charming new cottage, just completed in 2022, is a short walk from a spectacular mile-long pink sand beach. Flipper Refuge has lovely ocean views throughout, and you can hear the sounds of the waves from every room. Come recharge your batteries and be in harmony with nature.


Flipper Refuge has two bedrooms, both with queen beds. Both have ocean views. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan, screened windows with noseeum screen, and an independent mini-split AC system. So you have many ways to enjoy the breezes and keep cool.

We have one full bath with a walk-in shower. There is also a wonderful outdoor shower with plenty of privacy.
The living area features a 42-inch flat screen TV. The dining area has seating for 5.

The kitchenette is equipped with a full-size refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and all the necessary dishes. You can use the oven/stove in the owners main house if you need to do more serious cooking. Our water is drinkable, filtered and purified with a UV system.

Off the living area is lovely deck with sweeping ocean views, furnished for lounging.

Amenities include AC throughout, WIFI, smart TV (but no cable), charcoal grill, washer/dryer, back-up generator and a UV Water Filter. Access available to the owners oven/stove and washer and dryer in the main house. All windows have no-see-um screens enabling you to sleep with windows open. Walk five minutes down our dirt road and you are on a world-class pink sand beach with turquoise water, well protected by a barrier reef for great swimming, snorkeling, spear-fishing, and long walks year-round. There is typically no one else on this beach. And yet a 5-minute walk brings you to Sky Beach Club’s excellent restaurant, bar, and pool bar. You are welcome to use their facilities if you buy a drink at the bar or lunch at the restaurant.

Governors Harbour, the main town, is just a five-minute drive. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, a dive shop, and a medical clinic. It has a nice little collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking a picturesque harbor. You can buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour is a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. You won’t want to miss it.

Your hosts, Flipper and Normand, live right next door if you need help with anything or advice about the island. Flipper will take you keelingling and spearfishing if you like. But if you prefer privacy, you will never see them.
