In early June, 2011, I experienced a very friendly & knowledgeable staff, but a poorly managed Bluff House Marina. It appears they are between owners and/or managers, but charging first class dockage fees for less than first class service. I feel they are living off a past reputation, but with proper management could be revived to a first clas status. Until this happens, I would recommend you stay at Green Turtle Club in White Sound for the same price per foot.
I docked there last week for three nights … new owners are doing a great job of fixing problems. I will go there again.
We docked at Bluff House Marine with our group in late July, 2011. The new owners (Ian & Stacy) were fantastic! Their level of service & attention to our needs was well above our typical Bahamian experience. They are making very positive changes. We recommend them & will be back.
We stayed at Bluff House for 4 nights over New Years of 2012. The food was wonderful the docks are in great shape, the showers and laundry are set for updating soon but were OK and reasonably clean. The owners are helpful, interested in feedback and completely engaged in getting The Bluff House up to high standards. Green Turtle Marina was very nice, but the dock master had something of an attitude they were the only game in town, which with The Bluff House coming on strong is just not the case. His attitude kind of forced us over to the Bluff House…he was not exactly rude, but almost.
Be sure to check their specials……and give any helpful ideas or feedback to them (Bluff House) you can. They seem to be genuinely open to it….they are resort owners and do not completely understand what cruisers need and want……….also there is a beautiful private beach just over the bluff the main house/homes sit on that is to die for….and you will probably have it all to yourself.
We are going back on our way back to the states.
