'Slow down, you're in Hopetown'! That is the mantra that awaits you as you enter the harbor. Hopetown is a lovely historic retreat, where islanders and guests mingle together at a slower pace of life.
Founded in 1785, Hopetown is clearly the most scenic settlement in the Bahamas. The harbour and its famous lighthouse, which must be toured, are stunningly beautiful. The quaint, vibrant-colored houses reflect simpler days. Motorized vehicles are restricted from town, so the streets are quiet and a pleasure to walk. There are excellent restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, a museum, and interesting gift shops.
A visit to this island is unlike any other perception or past trip that you've had to the Bahamas. Although their main industry is tourism, you will not experience any large destination resort high-rises, motorized traffic is limited, and the town's people make you feel like a local the minute you set foot in town!
The house is within a few minutes to either the Atlantic Ocean for surfing or boogie boarding or the Sea of Abaco, which is excellent for small children who aren’t ready for the waves!
Keywords: Enjoy a relaxing getaway in this beautiful Colonial Style house. Located at the lovely North End of Elbow Cay and surrounded by great garden with lush tropical plants, Windover offers complete seclusion for those looking to get away from it all and has great decks for relaxing or entertaining. Beaches right by the house and the quaint town of Hope Town minutes away with great shops and restaurants. Use of public dock. Also use of owner electric golf cart!
Our family love the water. Boating, fishing, kite boarding, snorkeling. We actually live here. My children go to school here. We just love it.
Sarah Allen purchased this house in 2008
We came here for a 6 week vacation and left this amazing Island buying a house! We just love it here. People friendly, great and safe for kids. Beaches beautiful. Nice restaurants on the water. Boaters paradise. Super fishing, diving and snorkeling.
So relaxing, minutes from the beach. Lovely quaint town. Great fishing, snokelling. Boaters paradise.
Windover is a wonderful house - I don't think we could have stayed in a better place

I would return in a heart beat to make dinner at home or drive the golf cart down the picture perfect winding road to a handful of wonderful island restaurants. All of the beaches are public, so there are numerous possibilities for swimming, snorkeling and surfing. The house is located on the charming and private north end of the island and the owners were more than hospitable, offering us fresh caught mahi-mahi for the grill.

This house is fabulous, a lovely private estate!! The owner was a huge help in making it easy for us to rent. She answered all our questions. Great location, located on the north end of the island, steps away from one of the most beautiful secluded beaches on the entire island, Nathan's Bay! The home is well-equipped and clean. It has everything you possibly could need. If you have kids, they can learn to paddle board, snorkel and swim. The wrap around decks are great for relaxing in the evening; the stars on the North end are amazing! Really, your options are endless! If you rent a boat, the dock is in walking distance from the house, you'll walk by the beach entrance, so don't be tempted to take a dip! The trips to town on the golf cart are a fun adventure every single time. Oh the sights you'll see. You'll miss the scenery once you return to reality:)
My entire family and I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a true island experience.
We loved our stay at Windover on Elbow Cay. The house and grounds were beautiful, spacious, well-kept, and clean. The house comfortably fit two families with several small children and was located a very short walk to the beach and boat dock. The added bonus of an included golf cart was also a big plus. We will definitely be renting Windover again in the future. We have visited Elbow Cay several times over the years and this is our favorite rental house so far.
We arrived at the north dock in our 32' boat and awaiting us at the dock was the owner Luke. He was most helpful and assisted us in getting everything to his home.
The house was very complete and clean. There were 4 adults and 2 teenagers on this visit and we had more than enough space in the house. The grounds are very well landscaped and maintained. It is very private the way the house is situated among the trees.
The beach is a very short walk away and the dock is close as well.
We have stayed at many homes on Elbow and Hopetown and rate this home and our stay among the top of our list.
Thanks Sarah and Luke for sharing your home with us!
My family of 6 spent 7 wonderful days at Windover. We have 4 children ages 7-13. The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and clean. The beds are cozy and the living spaces both inside and out are inviting. The owners, Sarah and Luke were immensely helpful and answered all of our questions. The golf cart was great, but we preferred to use our rented bikes to explore the island. The tranquil Sea of
Abaco is steps away. The kids loved swimming there and exploring on that beach. We all had a great week and look forward to returning to Elbow Cay.
Sitting on a large park like property,this house provides privacy in a great location.The calm waters of the sea of Abaco lap a georgous beach within a few minutes walk,while at the same distance on the other side the Atlantic surf awaits you.
Feel like a trip into town?A short cart ride or a lovely 15 minute walk through beautiful vegetation and quaint historic laid back Hopetown with good restaurants,local shops and a stunning harbour with kerosene powered light house is yours.
Windover with its wrap around decks up and down provides plenty of outdoor living.Sun,shade,wind or shelter are all to be had at the same time.
The house is lovingly decorated with a nautical theme,spacious and comfortable.The house owners were very helpful and always accessible.
Go fishing with a pro and catch your stay's supply of delicious fish,snorkel at Sandy Cay with Captain Plug or rent a boat to get to know the surrounding islands.You can be as active or lazy as you want.Every morning we woke up and thought,how lucky we were to spend another day in paradise.
We are repeat renters trying to become regulars.
