Overview

Elbow Cay and Hope Town House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

At Calypso, if you were any closer to the ocean, your feet would be wet! With fabulous views, one of the prettiest sandy beaches on the island, great swimming/snorkeling, and a prime central location close to town, Calypso is one of the most desirable rental houses on the island.

RUBBING ELBOWS NOT ALLOWED!

Calypso was designed from scratch for multiple families or large groups, with plenty of room to spread out and an open floor plan. No guest ever feels crowded with the large decks, generous common areas, and widely separated bedrooms. Partiers and sleepers can co-exist, and parents can rest easy knowing their children are safe and having fun without being underfoot. Whether you prefer quiet or a circus, there are many choices of how and where to spend your time – without even leaving the house!

FORMAL AND STUFFY - NOT!

Calypso is kick-off-your shoes casual and invites you to relax and have fun. Comfort rules. With a warm island motif, whimsical art that makes you smile, and comfortable furnishings, all your worries will soon be forgotten. A little sand on your feet – no problem - Calypso can handle it!

LET THE SUN SHINE AND THE BREEZES BLOW WHEREVER YOU CHOOSE TO GO!

Sunny or shady, breezy or calm, everyone can find a place to call their own. Sun worshippers love the steamer chairs on the ocean deck, which runs the entire width of the house. Also on the ocean side is a large shaded gazebo for those of fairer skin. A spacious landside screened porch and deck are perfect for enjoying fresh air when the breeze is a bit strong off the ocean, offering pleasant views of the yard’s palm trees and tropical vegetation. And those of a culinary persuasion need not feel left out as the kitchen area features awning style windows that open onto the porch. Whether flipping a burger on the deck’s gas grill, enjoying the vivid sunset sky in a porch rocker, or preparing an island feast in the well equipped kitchen, you will enjoy innumerable amenities that insure your stay is fun and memorable.

NO MORE “WHO GETS THE NICE BEDROOM?” DILEMMAS !

All 6 bedrooms are nice, spacious, and airy with lots of windows and great views. Dressers, wardrobes, and built-in closets provide plenty of storage and places to put your things. Every bedroom has its own private bathroom with shower and two sinks. Don’t settle for a bed in a closet that is labeled a bedroom!

TO TV OR NOT TO TV, OR DO THE GAME ROOM?

Yes there is a TV, and only one, and it’s a good one -in a private room, upstairs and away from all the activity. Perfect for an evening movie, or watching that 'can't miss' ballgame. Some guests have even been known to read a book in this cozy “away room”.

Rather get loud and rowdy, but don’t want to disturb others? Try the game room on the ground floor with its ping pong, foosball, and pool tables. A second refrigerator is perfect for keeping selected beverages handy.

NO POWER, WHAT DO WE DO?

Power outages happen in the Bahamas, especially in the summer when it’s hot and humid with no breeze and electrical demand is at its peak. There is no flushing of toilets, no showers, no relief from the heat (Ceiling fans need power too!), and food spoils. Power outages usually don’t last long, but YOU DON’T KNOW, and you have NO CONTROL! Who wants to lose a single vacation minute with these worries? Power outages are a non-event for guests of Calypso. The professionally maintained generator starts/stops automatically and provides all the power needed, even for AC.

WATER FROM ROOFS? BIRDS, PLEASE STAY AWAY!

While rain water collected from roofs and stored in cisterns is normal for most island houses, all Calypso water comes from a well and is purified by a reverse osmosis system with a 7,000 gallon reservoir. NO water is collected from the roof, so guests enjoy the cleanest water possible. The RO unit is professionally and scrupulously maintained, and completely automated.

AN OCEANFRONT HOUSE WITH A BOAT SLIP?

Guests are assured of a convenient and protected place to keep their boat at an assigned slip in Nigh Creek, between the house and town, a very short distance (.4 mile) away. Additional slips are available. (Oceanfront rental houses with docks/boat slips are very rare on Elbow Cay, and finding an available spot at the public docks can be a real challenge.)

PLEASE DON’T TAKE ME OFF THE GRID!

Some folks are happy to disappear from family, friends, and work while on vacation. That’s fine, but others may want to stay connected. (And there is always that “off/on” switch.) Calypso gives you the choice with a very reliable broadband internet connection and in-house wireless network. FREE! So don’t be embarrassed - surf the internet, immerse yourself in emails, and Skype those calls if YOU want. At a lower level of communications sophistication, Calypso also has a telephone and VHF radio for local calls.

WHO’S IN CHARGE?

Calypso has very active owners that check email regularly, respond quickly, and are always ready to assist. Do not underestimate the value of this level of attention! No one else has a more vested interest in your visit being trouble free and enjoyable. While the owners personally respond to all VRBO inquiries and have the final say on reservations/rates, guests will eventually be directed to Elbow Cay Properties to confirm reservations, collect information on your party, and coordinate your arrival with the caretaker. This rental agency is very experienced, very professional, and is an important on-island contact. Once you have made a reservation, they become your primary contact until you are actually in the Bahamas and meet with the caretaker. His responsibility is to keep the house in good order and ready for your arrival, to assist in getting to/from the ferry and the house, familiarize you with the house, and to help you with any concerns that need direct assistance. Of course, the owner is always glad to remotely assist.

About Bill Hand

We live in New Bern and Greenville in eastern NC, and are a university professor, attorney, dentist, and realtor.

We enjoy boating and travel, and have watched our children grow up visiting Elbow Cay. We are very hands-on owners, visiting the house several times a year and keeping close tabs on the property at other times.

Bill Hand purchased this house in 1999

Why Bill Hand chose Elbow Cay and Hope Town

We honeymooned on Elbow Cay 30 years ago, fell in love with the island, and returned regularly until purchasing a older 'character' home in 1999 with our good friends and current partners. Months later the house was destroyed by Floyd. With such a great location, we spent years designing and building a new house to complement the site while caputuring some of our favorite features of the original house. Calypso is the proud result.

What draws us to Elbow Cay is the peace and quiet, friendly people, natural beauty, and safety. There are no cruise ships, resorts, compounds, or mega-hotels. One can walk anywhere on the island at any time of the day or night and feel completely safe. In all our years, we have never locked a door while there. We love walking in town and not dodging cars and motorcycles (Motor vehicles are prohibited from Hope Town except for commercial deliveries.) Golf carts, especially quiet ELECTRIC ones, are such a pleasant and non-intrusive way of getting around the rest of the island. And people are so friendly - everyone waves when passing!

Naturally, since this is an island, boating is a major part of your activies, and the surrounding waters are just phenominal. Even an inexperienced boater, or someone unfamiliar with the area, can travel most anywhere safely and in protected waters.

Most of the locals on the island depend upon second home owners and visitors for their livelihood, so they are unusually willing to provide advice or render assitance. Surliness typical of some of the more heavily visited parts of the Bahamas just doesn't exist on Elbow Cay.

Our families are well traveled, and we could spend our vacations most anywhere. The fact that we have never tired of Elbow Cay and are always eager to return is the greatest endorsement we can give.

Without you, our renters, we would be unable to enjoy this island paradise, so we have every incentive to make YOUR experience a positive one.

What makes this house unique

Rather than repeat what you can read elsewhere, here are few of the things we ALWAYS do.

We pick up a few cold ones on the way to the ferry from the airport and as soon as the ferry leaves the dock, toast our arrival, for now we KNOW beyond all doubt we will shortly be in Hopetown. We deliver our bags to the house and head straight to the Harbour's Edge for anything conch - whether it be fritters, chowder, burgers, fingers, salad, whatever. You can't beat the food and the view of the harbour and that stunning lighthouse.

With at beverage in hand, we head south in the cart to tour the island, with maybe a visit to Firefly, the Abaco Inn, or Sea Spray to freshen up our beverages or enjoy a snack of something locally caught and prepared.

We cruise to neighboring islands for meals at Cracker P's on Lubbers Quarters, Pete's Pub in Little Harbour, Nippers on Guana Cay, or Hibiscus on Man O War, where a boatyard and canvas shop stop are mandatory.

We walk into town a LOT, whether for a cup of excellent java at the HT Coffee Shop, fresh bread and pies at Vernon's, shopping at one of the many small gift stores, or just to enjoy the cooing of the doves and picturesqe houses.

We snorkel at Sandy Cay, one of the areas prettiest and well protected reefs, and walk the beach at Pelican Cay. The thundering surf crashing onto the oceanside coral can give one a new perspective on the perils of being shipwrecked on a reef, and the tideline is edged with colorful tiny shells that are miniature treasures.

We visit the famous red and white striped light house, one of a very few in the WORLD that are still hand wound and burn kerosene. The view or the island from the top is spectacular, and sure to drive a camera buff into a frenzy of picture taking.

We visit the Wyannie Malone museum to renew our respect for the town founders and the history of this truly unique place.

Lastly, we enjoy our house. Everything else is a bonus!

Guestbook comments from the owner

THANKS FOR THE INQUIRY ON OUR SATISFACTION WITH THE RENTAL OF “CALYPSO”.. YOU KNOW YOU HAVE HAD A GREAT VACATION WHEN ALL OF US SAID I AM NOT READY TO GO HOME, AND WE NEED TO DO THIS AGAIN. THE HOUSE WAS EVERYTHING WE COULD HAVE WISHED FOR. IT WAS VERY CLEAN AND VERY COMFORTABLE. WE LOVED THE LAYOUT OF THE HOUSE. PLENTY OF ROOM AND MANY PLACES WHERE YOU CAN FIND SOLITUDE WHEN YOU WANT IT. THE LOCATION WAS GREAT ON THE ISLAND. ALSO ALL OF THE VENDORS THAT WERE SUGGESTED, BOAT, GOLF CART WERE VERY ACCOMMODATING. HAVING OWNED BEACH FRONT PROPERTIES IN NORTH CAROLINA FOR OVER 50 YEARS, THE HOUSE WAS IN SUPRISING GOOD SHAPE. ONLY PROBLEMS AT ALL WERE SOME WINDOWS WERE HARD TO OPEN OR WOULDN’T STAY OPEN, PLEASE CONVEY MY THANKS TO BILL HAND AND TOM TAFT FOR SHARING THEIR HOME WITH US.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

What a treat! We along with five other couples stayed in this incredible house. Four of the rooms were "master suites" and the other two bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The view is breathtaking and the house was a wonderful place to entertain and cook. In fact, we enjoyed staying at the house more than we did going to the restaurants on the island.....All the amenities of home. The beach in front of the house was beautiful and deep and we felt like we were the only people on the island. It was a wonderful getaway.

Epic week at Calypso!

  • 5 of 5

Words nor photos can remotely describe the joy, laughter and great times had by all of us at your Calypso Home!

My son's deployment wish became a reality. All of his family and best friends spent a week of 'pura vida' in Hopetown at your Calypso 'haven'. I am SOOOOOO GLAD we chose Calypso House! It was perfect! We definitely needed the spacious living area. It's obvious you put a lot of thought when building.

Every moment was cherished, whether sitting around the dining table sharing stories, having a family toast in your kitchen, or a cuban-style cigar gathering...it was epic. The sound and smells of the ocean put you in automatic relax mode. Afternoon siesta in the hammock...Priceless!

Hope to be back someday!

Again....THANK YOU for sharing your lovely Calypso Home with us.

Just the right big chill

  • 5 of 5

Calypso is indeed purpose built for groups that like to be together sometimes and apart sometimes. We had three families including adults and young adults and were never too crowded. The house is sturdy - really quiet inside and clean and well-kept. It's beautifully positioned at the top of a dune, right on the beach and we had a constant sea breeze so the temperatures in the high 80s were always comfortable out on the deck. We rented one golf cart for the house which helped us haul gear to the boat and goods from town, otherwise everything is within a reasonable walk. The private dock was really great - no jockeying for space at the public dock and closer to the house. The caretakers met us on schedule at our ferry and were as attentive as we asked them to be. The owners answered all our questions before arrival and they encourage feedback. I sent them a few comments after our stay they responded immediately with a really nice follow up. We want to go back as soon as possible!

Great house and greatest location

  • 5 of 5

We had made a quick tour of home the year before. Met all of our expectations and was built for the three families staying there..we had all beds full for the week except for three nights and everyone had their own space. More than adequate kitchen with full compliments. One of best oceanfront homes, enjoyed walking down the beach into Hopetown near the Harbor Lodge and we met many new friends at "On Da Beach" one of islands hot spots just a couple of hundred yards south. Just beatfully and thoughtfully laid out for great practical utilization...2 washer dryers helped us reduce baggage considerably. Generator kicked on numerous times seemenlessly without notice or a problem, we always had electric, water and all service without exception. We plan on returning.

Awesome Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We just celebrated my 50th birthday, the birthday of my wife and another birthday of a very good friend at Calypso. This is an awesome house for a group. We had 7 adults (3 couples & one single adult) and each of us had a wonderful time. Certainly one of the best vacations we have had.

The layout of the home for 4 couples and kids is awesome. You can accommodate up to 12 with the extra two rooms that have the twin beds. The mirror image layout is great with a master on the left & right of the 2nd & 3rd floors, and is very conducive to privacy as well as easy access to the Kitchen/Dining/Family Room area, the deck and beach access.

A little further to town than you may wish to walk, but golf carts make it easy to get around. We rented from Island Cart Rentals in Hopetown and they pickup/deliver to Calypso and the boat dock (that is also another great feature of the house).

The boat dock is a great asset. About a 10-12 minute walk or a quick golf cart ride from the house towards Hopetown, the dock is safe, protected, secure and accommodated a 26' Dusky from CJ Abaco Dorado boat rentals easily.

The house is well equipped with Wifi, Satellite Radio & Entertainment System, big screen TV upstairs for keeping kids entertained, ice-maker, weather station and a well stocked supply of spices and condiments for cooking.

Big windows open up on the western (grill side) to enable the grill meister to be part of the action when cooking at the house.

We cooked in 3 nights and very much enjoyed the steaks, seafood and other dishes that we created in the Kitchen and on the grill.

Overall an awesome home and one we plan to recommend to friends, family and clients.
