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

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.

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!

Three Brothers and Their Wives Experience Elbow Cay

  • Submitted: Mar 2, 2014

Sunrise Point is the perfect hub from which to explore charming Elbow Cay! All three couples had their own bedroom and bathroom in a lovely, immaculate home. The wrap around porch was the perfect spot to enjoy sunrises with your coffee in the morning and sunsets with a glass of wine in the evening. The beach was such a fascinating one for walking upon. Beautiful location, walking distance to a great place to eat--Sea Spray Marina. Good places to eat abound on this island, we especially recommend Captain Jack's for lunch and the Firefly Resort for dinner. But, the kitchen has everything you need to create a delightful meal. The snorkeling in the area is awesome; it is great to rent a boat and very handy to use the owner's dock. Whether you have a boat or choose to use the ferry to travel between, we highly recommend visiting Man of War Cay and Little Harbor on Great Abaco. Helpful and supportive home manager, Wanda, is a wizard who can answer any question, solve any problem, supply whatever you need to enjoy your stay. We can't wait for our next adventure at Sunrise Point!

Great Location! We have stayed in several houses on Elbow Cay but without a doubt, Sunrise Pointe is our favorite! The pictures don't do it justice....even better in person. Great set up for our 2 families with 5 kids. Only negative was the poor internet connection, but then again, it was a good excuse to REALLY escape!

Barely made flight out of DFW due to jackknifed Fedex truck. Prepared for extensive rental boat orientation Boat Harbour Marina, but was tossed the keys by Emerson and asked "you know where ya goin' mon? Sign here" (they'll rent a boat to anybody). Piloted the 24' Whaler toward White Sound, and spotted what we figured to be your dock with boat in lift. Found keys under seats of awaiting carts, but couldn't raise Wanda on the phone (not yet familiar enough with VHF). Boated to Sea Spray Marina to inquire, where Junior explained "All de phones be down mon, but I got 'er cell. Met Lucy at Sunrise Point to be let in and shown around (what a place)! Bags dropped, masks on, and lobster in hand, within 15 minutes (again, what a place)! Over the next week, boated to Pete's Pub in Little Harbour, snorkeled reef east of Sandy Cay, fished Tilloo Cut, and Matt Lowe's, Headed up to Nippers, and Grabbers (had to do some hammock time before return), and enjoyed the beautiful blue sky and water to their fullest. Awoke to pack for return Tues. morning, and it's stormin' like a "bygawd" (Texas term). Need to make 1:20pm departure to FLL. Listened to cruisers net, ask a few weather related questions of the locals (a lot more familiar with VHF now) and look for a window. Gettin' darker with lightning to south. It's now or never! Crossed to Marsh in a squall wearing our swim suits, with wind now out of NW, change of clothes in trash bags, and grins all around (well actually I may have been the only one grinning). Girls changed in a hedge next to Sea Horse rentals cause the office was closed for the season. Sandra on the radio says "just tie 'er up good, and put keys in the ice chest". Delayed in FLL for a couple of hours, home, showered, and eyes closed 2:30am Wed. morning. Back to work at 7:00am. Now THAT was one "hellova" trip my friend!



The place seems to be in great shape, genny kicked in when power went down, boat and dock looked good. Thanks so much for letting us use them. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need any references on the place, and if you ever get down this way, your welcome to come check out our little piece of paradise. I'll send a couple of pics after a little sleep.



Thanks Again,

Pooty

"Best vacation ever"

That was the refrain heard many times during our delightful week at Sunrise Point. Our two nearly adult children, ages 20 and 17 were sad to leave the island at the end of our week. When I booked the vacation, I was not certain that there was enough activity for my family given their ages and lack of connectivity to their friends. (our cell phones did not work and we did not bring a laptop.) I was happy to be wrong. We had a blast. We loved the beaches and swimming and everybody discovered we loved boating and snorkeling at the National Park Reefs. We snorkled at both Fowl Cay and Pelican Cays having rented a boat for three days and then extending it for another day because we had such a great time. Having the dock on the seaside made this a possibility. We also found swimming from the dock to be terrific. We saw the best sea stars there. At night we relaxed on the verada with the cool breezes and listened to the surf right outside the door. It was so private and quiet. We saw neighbors a couple of times but really felt comfortable eating breakfast in our pajama's on the porch watching the sunrise with our coffee because we were the only ones there.
We frequented the town and the grocery stores taking advantage of our golf cart. The kitchen was well provided with utensils and cooking needs. We cooked two dinners there and had Mackey's take out (close by) one time.
The house is charming and while going outside from the master bedroom to get to the kitchen was not something we normally expect in a vacation home, the weather was terrific and it was great to have privacy from the main living area. The physical set up was fine for our family and part of the charm of staying in this home built so many years ago.
Elbow Cay is an amazing little island. Our son lost his drivers licence at Froggies Snorkeling in town (and was not aware of it) and one of the crew members remembered talking to us and remembered that we were staying at a property Wanda Sweeting was caretaker for. He brought the license to her to give to us. No worries on this island.
We enjoyed fine dining at Firefly Resort at sunset. We stayed more casual with dinner and Trivia at Capt Jack's (won free drinks!) and Harbor's Edge. Took a snorkeling excursion with Froggies the first day to orient ourselves to the Abaconian Sea and snorkeling.
We are hoping to return sometime soon and would definitely stay at Sunrise Point.

My wife and I stayed at Sunrise Point in Dec. 2010. We had a wonderful time. Very peaceful and relatively private. The house and property was clean and well kept. Great beach right out the front door with beautiful views from dawn to dusk. Wanda, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful. We had such good memories of our first stay that we just booked the place again.
