We decided to stay in Marsh Harbour so that we'd be in 'town' and wouldn't have to rent a car to go do anything. This is because we assumed that there would be anything to do. There was not. As lodging goes, there are pretty limited options in Marsh Harbour itself -- a resort or two, a few condo complexes, lots of rental houses. We stayed at the Regattas of Abaco, a condo / timeshare community, and paid about $1500 for a two-bedroom unit for the entire week. The rooms are fine, and they have a pool, a nice little beach area and deck. There is no restaurant in the compound, but there are several within walking distance. The resort next door, Abaco Beach Resort, was more inclusive, as resorts tend to be, with the dive operator on-premises, a restaurant and bar, a pool & jacuzzi area, etc. Given the choice, as a group of guys who would have enjoyed after-diving actvities, I probably would spend the extra money and stay at the resort. For couples, early-to-bed types, or cost-conscious travellers, the Regattas are a better option.

Lubbers was very isolated. There were no cars. People got around on foot or with Golf Carts. If walking at night--you used a flash light--there are no street lights. There are no streets! Our cottage ran off of 12 volt electricity. No hair dryers, No Curling Irons, No TV, No Phone...etc. We communicated via CB radio. Our shower was outside. The water was collected by the rain....it was recommended that we CONSERVE. Our caretaker told us that 'if it was yellow, let is mellow...if it's brown, flush down!' I have to admit--at first, I was apprehensive....but it ended up being the best time ever!!
