Why the Owner Chose Hopetown: We have vacationed in Hope Town for over 30 years always renting local properties. We recently bought Banana Split as a newly built house. The house is extremely well designed by a local Architect/ builder and finished and furnished to a high standard. Hope Town is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Elbow Cay is fringed with white sand beaches and crystal clear seas. Locals are welcoming and friendly.

The Unique Benefits of this House Banana Split b: Banana Split benefits from cool breezes and escapes the hustle & bustle of the main community whilst being close enough to reach the bars, restaurants, shops and harbor. The secluded pool and tropical gardens are perfect places to relax.The house is tastefully furnished in a West Indies style. All equipment is new. Each bedroom has a bathroom and the downstairs is ideal for a couple, teenagers or grandparents

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT HOUSE, HOSPITABLE OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Banana Split for 10 days and couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Susan and John were staying downstairs at the time (agreed in advance) which turned out to be a big bonus as they very kindly took us on a boat tour of the area and gave all the local tips. They live there 6 months or more out of the year so the house is very well cared for, clean, and nicely decorated. The kitchen has all the amenities and the pool is great for the kids, small but does the trick nicely. There is a nice outdoor eating area and also a lounge area in the shade. The house is located close to town but equally in the middle of the island so you can visit either end within 10 minutes by golf cart. If you are a runner, you can take a nice 3-6 mile run in either direction and see the whole island. Hopetown is very quaint, the people very friendly (for the most part) and the choice of restaurants excellent. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend Banana Split to any vacationers. Thank you Susan and John for our best vacation to date! The Lindys

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went with his dad, my mom, and my brother and his girlfriend for Christmas week, and the house was perfect for us. Mom had the downstairs to herself, and father-in-law and the other four of us had plenty of privacy and space upstairs. The owner was great about answering questions via email, and even had some christmas decorations up for us! i believe this is more of a primary residence for the owners, which means it is extremely well cared for and well equipped. Location was great, a two minute walk to the beach, and the food at On Da Beach was incredible. None of us had ever been to Elbow Cay but we all thought it was terrific. My only small complaints were that the pool was not heated (coooold!), but on the other hand, electricity is expensive in the islands so I understand. Also, the twin beds were comfy but bed frames were very squeaky/creaky. But neither were deal breakers, so we recommend Banana Split wholeheartedly!

A GREAT HOUSE, GREAT HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for ten days with our teenage daughter. The house is wonderful: comfortable and spacious, with good breeze (but well-functioning air-conditioning), well equipped kitchen, lovely pool and airy deck, surrounded by luscious garden. The position on the Cay is ideal. It is a home and feels like home, not like a rental.
The owners John and Susan are warm, gracious and interesting people, who love Elbow Cay and generously share their knowledge of the surrounding water and beach. They are long-time members of the island community and as their guests visitors will benefit from the best the island has to offer.
This is a truly exceptional holiday.
