CHARMING COTTAGE & BUNGALOW PERCHED ON THE SEA

Tilloo Cay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

'Tween Waters' Tilloo is a three-acre, ocean to sea property, located on Tilloo Cay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas. Perched on the Sea of Abaco, the TWT can sleep 6 & affords spectacular vistas from every room and incredible sunsets each night.

You feel a part of the tropical paradise surrounding you yet central air-conditioning protects you from too much of a good thing. Your boat is safe at the TWT dock and visible from the font deck.

Relax on the wrap-around covered decks or bask in the sun on our open Point Deck. TWT is located just south of Tilloo Cut and has easy ocean access for deep-sea fishing! For those who like to snorkel and shell - Tilloo Flats and beach is just around the bend where you can see starfish and sand dollars galore.

The next stop would be Sandy Cay National Underwater Park - so close you can go everyday! It's a must-see treasure! Tahiti Beach is three minutes north or you can hike down the backside of Tilloo to our ocean side beach. Leave the hustle and bustle behind. Relax by the crystal clear water, linger over cocktails, and wander through your vacation, as you become a Tillovian!

We built and live on Tilloo but also in southeast Florida. We enjoy traveling to the mountains too but always return to the warmth of the tropics!

Jim & Kim purchased this cottage in 1998

The boating & snorkeling is definately 'better in the Bahamas'.

Our ocean and Sea of Abaco views are incredible! We are directly on the Sea and our little reef is our aquarium. You can watch the fish from our front deck as well as our docks!

A Fabulous Vacation

Just returned from an amazing week on Tilloo. Jim and Kim were amazing at providing helpful information before we arrived, and helping with travel planning. We stayed in the bungalow, which was just perfect. I loved the outdoor shower, wrap around porch, and Abaco views. We stopped for groceries before getting to Tilloo, so could cook our own meals, but there were several great dinner options that were a quick boat ride away. Jim always had a great recommendation for a snorkel spot, beach destination, or place to grab a drink, and it was great to be able to borrow fishing and snorkel gear. He make our stay so easy and relaxing.
We lucked out with fabulous weather and week of crystal clear water. I wanted to bottle up that turquoise color and bring it home with me.
I tend to prefer renting a house over hotels for vacations, and being active over sitting at a pool all day, and i couldn't have been happier with finding Tilloo. What a perfect week of boating, beaches, snorkeling, fishing, beautiful sunsets, and grouper sandwiches. And dont miss Monday night BINGO at Captain Jacks, that made me happy. I can't wait to come back to the Abacos, and I'd definitely hope to stay at Tilloo again!

We went back to the Bahamas for our 25th Honeymoon and we said we would go back to 'Tween Waters every year for the next 25. The cottage is charming and spotless, the beds comfortable and the views spectacular. We especially liked the spacious outdoor shower. This place is quiet and secluded and perfect for a romantic getaway. We rented a boat from Island Marine and spent our days out on the water and then tied right up to our own dock at night. Best of all, we were able to bring our dogs along! Don't miss Sunday brunch at the Hopetown Harbour Lodge. We have a home in Florida but when we go to the Bahamas, we are going to stay HERE!

Our stay at Tween Waters Tillo was better than we could have imagined. We loved having nature at our doorstep, we saw lobsters, parot fish, lion fish, rays, morey eel, sharks, snapper , lion fish, star fish the list goes on. We had all the doors open all week and never turned on the AC and showered outside ONLY! The view and sunsets were amazing and we can not wait to return sooner vs. later!

Jim and Kim, i know my wife sent an email a couple of weeks ago, but i couldn't help sending an additional one myself. this was without a doubt the best vacation my wife and I have taken since our honeymoon 21 years ago. So first of all, thanks to both of you for allowing us to enjoy your awesome place. More importantly, please thank dave, and your wonderful neighbors for their unbelievable hospitality and making us feel welcomed. The generosity by them made us want to pack up and move there. It was like we had returned to our childhood neighborhood to visit after many years. Anyhow, they were extremely respectful and accomodating in every category, more so than any resort could ever match. In respect for their privacy i will refrain from mentioning names. "Turtle Cove" you rock".... and you know who you are. If you are looking to get away for some peace and quiet in paradise with no motor cars or luxury then this is the place. Go and be as you are and relax...we certainly did. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jim and we are sorry that we didn't get a chance to meet you or Kim personally.

Regards, til the next time!!

My Wife and I spent a week in February at the waterfront cottage, for her birthday and Valentine's day. We would buy this if it were for sale - an absolute perfect getaway if you love peace and quiet. Fish off the dock for dinner, explore the cays by boat, run to Hopetown or P-Crackers for lunch or dinner. We just enjoyed each day, much of it on the boat. Absolutely fantastic sunsets and no lack of comforts, best of all, the owner was great - accomodating our requests and making sure everything was well stocked! I am late in writing this review...sorry!

Thanks again Jim, and I hope you are well!

We are located in the middle of the Abaco Islands. Hopetown, Elbow Cay is the island north of us and Lubber's Quarters is located directly across from our island of Tilloo. We have Tilloo Cut which is the deep water pass into the ocean for prime deep sea fishing.

Tilloo Cay Reserve is located on our island. It was established in 1990 & covers 11 Acres. It is a wild and pristine natural environment that provides nesting for Tropic birds as well as other seabirds. Pelican Cays Land and Sea Park is located 20 minutes south of us by boat.

Established 1972 it contains beautiful undersea caves, extensive coral reefs and abounds with terrestrial plant and animal life. Tilloo is a beautiful island with lovely beaches and fabulous water which includes Tilloo Flats - the best place to find sand dollars and view the amazing starfish!
