Our house is in the Hope Town Point area which encompasses the northern end of Elbow Cay. We are about 1 mile from the settlement, right on the water, on the Sea of Abaco side and all of the homes in this area are owned by foreigners such as ourselves. The walk from the settlement on a sand road is most pleasant, always with a view of the sea and past lovely homes and estates. About 250 yards before you get to our property you will pass the Hope Town Point Community dock in a protected lagoon. Our private drive winds through the woods and flowering bushes to the house, which is situated right at the edge of the sea. Surrounding the house are plantings of bougainvillea, oleander, hibiscus and other flowering bushes along with various hardwood trees and palms. The dense vegetation affords perfect privacy and there is a magnificent view from the front of the house, which faces the sea. The house sits on a 12' high rock bluff and our vista takes in the Hope Town Lighthouse, Parrot Cays, Marsh Harbour, Man-O-War Cay, Johnnie's Cay, and the ocean reefs. A path carved out of the stone leads to our own L-shaped dock where you may leave your rented boat (most people rent a boat). At the end of the dock is our handsome gazebo which allows you to get out of the sun. There is seating and a rope hammock. What a wonderful place to spend an afternoon with a good book. The steps carved into the bluff also take you down to our own small beach and into the water. The whole sea bottom in front of our house is clear white sand and varies from 1 1/2' to4' deep out 150 feet from the water's edge. This is one of the things about our property that we enjoy the most - wonderful swimming right in front of the house. You can wade all the way to the end of the island (about 1/4 mile) all over a sand bottom - a great way to meet the neighbors in the late afternoon.


Our high bluff plus the elevation of the house gives us wonderful breezes, which blow right through. The house is central air conditioned, but all windows open and are screened and we have tropical fans in the bedrooms, living room, and on the porch. From the drive you enter the side of our 40' long covered porch. On the porch is a table and chairs for outside dining, a sitting area, and chaise lounges. The house is melon color with white trim. You will love the 180-degree view of multi-hued blues and greens of the clearest water you will ever see. The sunsets are unbelievable. You will discover that our dock at night, is a wonderful place to be. You have the feeling that you are sitting in the middle of the ocean and there is always a delightful breeze.


The house itself has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a large living and dining area, and a kitchen. All rooms have cathedral ceilings for an open, airy feeling. The walls and wood ceiling are all "pickled" cypress with a light tan finish. The living/dining area, overlooking the sea, has a wall of glass windows and doors. The furniture is rattan and the whole house is beautifully decorated a la Fran. Almost the entire house has white ceramic tile flooring. The round rattan dining table seats six and overlooks the water through two glass walls. The entertainment center includes a stereo/radio/cassette player, playing cards, games, and a large selection of books. There are many interesting books about the Bahamas including two informative guidebooks for yachtsmen, which will help you plan your days. There are also books about flora, shells, fish, and stars. The large selection of tapes range from Mozart, to Big Band, to Calypso and the oldies. We also have an 18-inch satellite dish and TV with 15 movie channels, DVD player, music, and many other channels. In the kitchen is a VHF radio. You can use it to make dinner reservations, for the ferry, or to entertain yourself by listening to all of the conversations. There is a telephone for local service, longdistance out is blocked, but people can call you. To call long distance out from the house, purchase a Batelco calling card at the telephone station next to the Hope Town Harbour Lodge. The kitchen is very well equipped for almost any of your needs and includes a blender, a microwave, coffee maker, a toaster and a dishwasher. There is a charcoal grill for your enjoyment (please leave hot coals in grill for at least 24 hours before throwing them into the garbage pail). We have 24-hour city electricity, as well as an auxiliary generator in case of a power failure. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds and one bedroom has two singles. Both baths have stall showers. The water is collected off the roof in a cistern under the house and we ask that you be as careful as possible about wasting water. Towels, linens, and blankets are supplied, but beach towels are not. Please bring your own. A lovely ocean beach is only a three-minute walk from our property across the island.

 OTHER RENTAL RATES
  We rent from Saturday to Saturday and the minimum rental is one week. The 3 different rates shown are weekly for 2 people, 3/4 people, and 5/6 people. Usually our guests leave Marsh Harbour on a morning plane and check out time is 10:00 A.M. This leaves us time to clean the house for arriving guests with a check in time at 2:00 PM. If you arrive earlier you can change clothes and start to explore the island. To confirm a reservation (maximum of 6 people) a deposit of $1,000 for each week you stay is required. The balance is due 5 weeks before you arrive. Mail is very slow to the Bahamas and this gives us time to notify our caretaker of your arrival so he can meet you and take you to the house. In regard to cancellations, your deposit less $100 will be refunded if we are notified no less than 120 days prior to the time reserved. If less than 120 days notice is given, the refund will depend on whether another renter can be obtained, which we are usually able to do. If you reserve two weeks, then the cancellation period is increased by 30 days. When you tell us you are taking a time period, we will hold the house for you for five (5) days for your deposit to arrive. We will then send you a letter confirming your deposit. When we receive your final payment we will send you additional information familiarizing you with the house, travel plans, maps, and how people can call you, etc.

Golf cart and boats can be rented.
