Overview

Elbow Cay and Hope Town Villa Rental Photos and Description

1-5 bedrooms, 1-4 baths, sleeps 1-12; wifi, pool, dock, A/C, backup gen. power

Ideal for families, couples and/or fishing fanatics. We offer the Best of the Abacos - luxurious fully furnished rental homes with private docks on an inlet in the Hope Town Harbour. We are close enough to town for all the conveniences the settlement has to offer, including restaurants, grocery stores, and gift shops, but yet we are far enough away to enjoy a peaceful and private setting. Head out in a rental boat to explore neighboring islands, walk a pristine beach, snorkel our spectacular reefs, visit the historical lighthouse and museum or take a charter and go deep sea fishing with the Legendary Bahamian fisherman, Cap'n Robert Lowe. Relax at the end of the day in the comfort of the centrally air conditioned home, in the fresh water swimming pool, in a hammock on the screened porch or dock, or stroll around the gardens and orchard. The homes are immaculate and we pride ourselves on the personal attention given to make your dream vacation extra special. The 3 bedroom/2bath home, known as Gully's Ridge can accommodate up to 7 people. If you have a larger crowd, rent the 2 bedroom/2bath home on the adjacent property, known as Gully's Nest, which can accommodate up to 5 people. Come enjoy the islands with your extended family or group of friends in one private setting. It is nice to be able to travel together, but great to be able to retire to your own space if desired. Come on down to see us! We are sure you won't want to leave!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed

About Karen Huff-Lowe

We are a unique couple, my husband, a native Bahamian and I am a SC transplant who visited the islands many years ago and fell in love with them. Eventually I met my soul mate, an islander, who is also known as one of the best fishermen around and I was lucky enough to catch and marry him. Together we've raised 2 fine sons and built our rentals homes on a secluded piece of land, close to the Hope Town settlement. This special piece of paradise is a hidden treasure in the beautiful Abaco islands and we are proud to share it with you.

Why Karen Huff-Lowe chose Elbow Cay and Hope Town

We are close to the Hope Town settlement, so it is convenient to get to any necessities, but yet, we are far enough away to get away from the noise of the settlement and for you to feel like you are in your own peaceful and private sanctuary. Elbow Cay/Hope Town is also centrally located in the middle of the Abaco chain of islands, so you can easily take a day and go north to explore and then head south the following day to see all the beauty these islands have to offer.

What makes this villa unique

We are in protected waters of the Hope Town harbour, so there is safe dockage for your boat or a rental boat. We are unique in that we offer a little more adventure than most of the rental homes on the island. Anyone can rent in the settlement and walk out their door to the store, but why not add a little adventure in your life and a story to tell your friends of how you got into a small boat and went thru the harbour to go shopping. Not only that, but you ate fresh fruit from the gardens/orchard of the vacation rental home where you stayed. That's not something everyone can talk about when they return from their vacation so come and enjoy a new adventure of our blended Southern hospitality....Bahamian style.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5
We love this place! We have been going to Hope Town every year for the last 12 years, and this is by far our favorite and number 1 choice. Robert and Karen are wonderful hosts, and the facilities meet our needs and desires well. We first stayed at the Gully's Nest (2 BR) but most recently have chosen Gully's Ridge (3 BR) because there were a group of six of us who started going fishing two or three times a year. Actually, some of us were going fishing and some were enjoying time in the islands. This place allows for both. We have our own boat and enjoy the private dock, but still charter Robert for at least half a day (renters get a discount) because the experience is that good. My wife chooses not to fish, but to enjoy lounging on the screen porch or by the pool. With the rental comes a small boat which makes going into town or to visit the lighthouse a simple possibility. They have put in easy access docks which makes getting in and out of the boats pretty easy no matter how high or low the tide. We especially enjoy Gully's Ridge because it's close enough to the restaurants and what's happening in town, but also provides us a sense of privacy.
