We are a family with 4 boys living the American dream and very thankful for our good fortune to have a home in the Bahamas. We live in Northern VA and traveled to the Bahamas for vacations and fell in love with the Abacos. The picture is of my wife and 3 of our children, as one was in college at the time this picture was taken on the front steps of Sunrise Point.
Glen purchased this house in 2004
Why Glen chose Elbow Cay and Hope Town
Our boys love the beach, the surfing, the snorkeling, the fishing and just about everything else about the Bahamas. And we love the weather in the Bahamas. We vacationed in several homes in the Abacos prior to deciding to purchase in this area of The Bahamas. We wanted to be on this Island, Elbow Cay, because it is very safe area where kids can be on their own and the doors open. Out-islands are more secure than the main land and Elbow Cay / Hopetown is very secure. We love Hope Town! We decided if we purchased a Bahama home it had to be on Elbow Cay which is the 4 mile long island where Hope Town is located. Elbow Cay is unique because the developers have not taken over, yet you have fantastic amenities. We narrowed our search to Elbow Cay because of the out-island experience with unbelievable amenities, including great bars and restaurants. We love the easy access to everything, including fantastic beaches and fishing. After narrowing our search to Hope Town / Elbow Cay we decided we wanted to be on the Ocean. Nice homes in our price range were difficult to find in 2004. Sunrise Point offered a unique round shape on the ocean in our price range. It was important to us that our home be able to survive the hurricanes, which this house does very well do to its shape. We also wanted an existing home with the opportunity for us to add our own touch and take the home to the next level. We wanted a casual beach house not some transplanted FL venue. That is what we saw when when we looked at Sunrise Point. It was a real beach home with a great location and history behind it. The beach in front of Sunrise Point is also wonderful and a surfing area. Sunrise Point is now the perfect home for us because it offers modern amenities but is casual and has a great location on the Island. We have not been disappointed and would do it all over again. We ended up with exactly the home we wanted in the place we wanted.
What makes this house unique
We've done an extensive remodeling of our 'round house' to bring it up to modern standards but have not destroyed the original charm of this home. It is a home that because of its shape is unique for on the ocean and almost indestructible. We had renters in the home during a hurricane in 2012 and they stayed on the Island in our home and were safe and never lost electric power. The generator ran continuously for 5 days and so did the air conditioner. Most visitors left the Island but our guests did not even consider the option.
The home has upgrades that include modern things like upper and lower full house air conditioning, modern appliances, automatic whole house power generator and we doubled the living space. In 2012 we put a new deck surface downstairs, we bought new furniture for the upper deck and living room and we installed new BBQ and Gas Grills and new air conditioning units for both the upper and lower units. The home has great bones and we've done continuous improvements.
One of the great things about our home is that each bedroom on the lower levels has a door that exits to the lower deck. This allows our guests to come and go without disturbing others.
The hurricane shutter are hinged on our home and stay attached so that they can be closed at anytime. The home has extensive windows letting in lots of light but if you close the shutters to a room you can make this room completely dark. If someone wants to sleep in or take a nap, this feature is perfect!
Sunrise Point has a completely open floor plan upstairs. When the doors are open on a nice day the gentle breeze is wonderful and the sound of the Ocean peaceful.
What we like is that the home maintains a laid back attitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a casual setting with the most spectacular views and great weather. Don't worry about a little sand on the floor and leave the door open and let the breeze come in and enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean!
