Stella Maris Resort is an ideal place to unwind, relax, and explore nature on land, in water, and in the air. We offer a wide range of vacation rentals and accommodations, from panoramic ocean-view rooms to four-bedroom waterfront and beachfront bungalows....some even with a private pool!

We provide the perfect getaway for leisure travelers, family vacationers, private pilots, and active water sportsmen. It seems only natural to want to explore the beaches, the fishing flats, and reefs. After all, Christopher Columbus once explored these islands, declaring Long Island to be the most beautiful island in the world.

Our accommodations and inclusive island activities make Stella Maris the perfect family or romantic getaway!

 Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The Stella Maris Resort Club was started at the end of 1965 as land development and serving guesthouse/inn by the first of four subsequent German partner families. Against all the odds of a very little developed area and island, almost completely unknown to the outside world, it evolved into a growing vacation hotel with an emphasis on nature and SCUBA diving. Over time, the business expanded into marine activities (Stella Maris Marina), air transportation (Stella Maris Resort Air Service) and land developing (Stella Maris Estate & Airport). Today, the partners are semi-retired, leaving the day-to-day business to succeeding family generations.

Here is an interesting history-info-fact: Stella Maris Estate, a well known, small and low-key land development but continually growing leisure and retirement town, occupies the lands of what was once “Adderley’s Cotton Plantation” … and one member of today’s Stella Maris’ operator generation is happily married to a Long Island Bahamian, whose family roots lead right back to the original plantation owners. And this is how this Bahamian Out Island plantation-to-tourism saga seems to go on and on …

 Pet Friendly Notes
We allow well-behaved, small dogs up to 20 pounds or under if you are staying in a cottage or bungalow. We require a $50 pet deposit for each pet, which will be returned if there is no damage done to the room!
