Overview

Lubbers Quarters Cay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A romantic private beach to get tanned and fall back in love with life

An oasis of waterfront tropical bliss in environmental harmony at this peaceful, private sea to sea property. A refreshingly green and elegantly modern rustic escape beckons nature lovers, spiritual seekers, romantic adventurers, sensual souls, creative and romantic spirits. Breathtaking views of crystal clear water to Tahiti Beach with a special private beach on six sea to sea acres of north Lubbers Cay. This ideal, clandestine getaway provides a perfect sanctuary bordered by the brilliant Sea of Abaco bathed by the rising sun and moon. Finding Moonrise is your private 'Slice of Paradise' Easy access to Cracker P's, Tahiti Beach, Hope Town, Marsh Harbour, area reefs and more. Sustainable solar energy provides a silent and reliable power source for your classically styled pioneer wooden cottage. Amusement by curly tail lizards, abundant resident sea life right under the dock and tropical birds flutter into your meditations. Easy access by boat, safe, private and laid back living. Fresh air, fragrant blossoms, the luxury of silence and open skies.

Comfortably Tropically Green: 'The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man'. ~Author Unknown

Unplug and Indulge in the peaceful water and soft sand of your own beach. Marvel at the infinity of a star-washed sky. From our guests:'Nothing compared to Moonrise and its seclusion. You can literally walk around naked! The lot is gorgeous with tropical trees and flowers and plants. It is very private, a great place for relaxation, solitude, romance . . . you name it! We are so glad we chose Moonrise.' 'Moonrise For Romance was just what we needed.....and actually went way beyond our expectations'

'Our experience here was simply awesome! After researching several options, we landed at Moonrise. Thank you universe . . . thank you Marlee. How often can you find a place so far from home that is so comfortable that you are immediately at home? Wow, Wow, Wow. We felt like imperial guests at some one's home - not your typical rental house -- empty, barren, cold, this is paradise!

Personal Freedom Undisturbed Privacy: Our spirits have been nurtured completely. So peaceful, only the sounds of nature. This has not only been a life-changing experience, but one we will cherish in our hearts forever' The view every morning was spectacular!

You will love the sleeping accommodations! The entire cottage and grounds are absolutely charming and romantic! The bathroom is a unique separate building -- very clean, very close, flush toilet . . . no problem. You will absolutely love the garden shower that is outside among the plants.'

Landscaping is very natural and beautiful attracting many wild birds. This is an adventure best suited to those who appreciate ecology and a simply elegant new age pioneer lifestyle experience. Solar electricity with abundant energy, charging laptops, cameras, etc, no problem. Time to leave the electronics in a bag and embrace the real culture of a wild island experience gently tamed by the conscious hands of the artist owner.

Open Style Living: The cottage was designed to open to the daily sunshine and breezes with very large screened windows. There is no air conditioning and for the months of August and September the cottage is not generally available for rent. The exception is if you are happy to have your cooling provided by fans and water immersion (my personal favorite). This is a very, very comfortable lifestyle for those wishing to decompress and become self aware and conscious of the cycle of life in harmony with nature. If you like 'glamping' this will exceed your expectations and become an unforgettable experience in the bosom of nature.

Nurture your spirit, commune with nature, reconnect with inner peace and the beauty that unfolds into your daily view.

About Marlee Mason

I am a naturalist and artist and keep moving into a vision of earth harmony and connection to earth stewards. I grew up on a farm in North Western Canada and moved to the east before I began to travel south for vacations and got hooked on tropical weather. I began the construction of Moonrise with my husband and young family however the marriage failed in the second year and I was afforded the opportunity to live as a single mom, single resident on a tropical island. I considered myself the queen of the island until others began to arrive and settle the island. I grew into the experience of building and living in a new age lifestyle and learning a respect for nature, discarding much of the unnecessary baggage in my life and focusing on finding inner peace. Moonrise is a triumph over obstacles for a humble farm girl who was determined to prove the skeptics wrong when they declared that I could not do this on my own. I had more time than money so in my free time, I would boat to the outer shores and I began to collect sea glass found on the beaches. This passion evolved into a jewelery art enterprise after I learned silversmith skills so I could set local antique sea glass into fine jewelery. Now I am focusing on developing a style of oil painting in additional to my one of a kind sea glass designs. You can find me on face book if you are interested.

Marlee Mason purchased this cottage in 1981

Why Marlee Mason chose Lubbers Quarters Cay

We settled here as a young family of four from Eastern Canada to find a better life with clean air, water and a dream to live an organic lifestyle in nature with bigger dreams than a bank account. The property captured my heart as it was out of the village noise and had good protection from ocean swells and major tropical storms nestled behind Elbow Cay yet only a few minutes from the finer restaurants and services of Hope Town or White Sound. The best part was the unpopulated and undeveloped beach that is shallow so it was perfect for toddlers. The view over Tahiti Beach to catch the spray of breaking waves and capture the prevailing winds enchanted me. Although my children have left home there is still a playful energy and a sense of wonder at the crabs, birds, fish under the dock and open spaces to explore.

As I have witnessed the development of the islands, I realized my intuitive choice and desire to buy a large piece of island waterfront was one of the better choices I made in life.

What makes this cottage unique

Solar energy gives the house electricity without interruption and without noisy and offensive exhaust generators. This is a learning and celebration opportunity to live a green life with renewable energy. The cottage is on a 6 acre sea to sea estate parcel so there is plenty of space to roam and find peace from the noise of commerce. The dock has deep enough water to safely keep your boat with a mooring to secure it away from the dock in foul weather. Safe and away from intrusions lending a honeymoon experience to daily activities.

Notes:
This is a return to the extremely organic, green, simple and Eco sensitive way of living in harmony with the beauty and nature of the best of historic Abaco. The woods and beach is pristine with orchids, hardwoods, blossoming trees, migratory and resident birds as well as sea life. This experience will enchant you and your young family and is rapidly disappearing as an option in our overdeveloped resort world. Stillness and expansiveness will greet your journey to Moonrise and keep the memories of playfulness with freedom and safety alive for a long time. This is a solar operated 12Volt and low voltage lifestyle. Summer guests please note there is NO air conditioning however you have the use of 3 fixed and 3 mobile fans for those occasional hot, still, summer nights!
