Overview

Elbow Cay and Hope Town House Rental Photos and Description

Delightful 2/2 With Front Porch Hanging Over The Waters Of The Sea Of Abac

“Sandpiper” is a charming artist owned two-storey, 2/2 cottage with it's own deep water dock and whose large front porch hangs directly over the celadon waters of the Sea of Abaco! To the back of the cottage are the beautiful White Sound beaches and the Atlantic Ocean. The home will sleep 4 to 6 people very comfortably and has recently been repainted, reupholstered and decorated with the island-inspired art of it's artist owners.

The large loft style master bedroom suite is upstairs and has cathedral ceilings, a king size bed, two twin beds, an office space and sliders to a small balcony overlooking the sound. There is an en suite bathroom with shower and double sinks as well as a large closet and several bureaus.

The downstairs guest room also has high ceilings, a queen size bed, sliders that open onto the front porch and dock and has an additional private entrance from the rear patio. It has a small en suite bathroom with a shower. Both bedrooms have AC and all the rooms in the house have ceiling fans and views of the Sea of Abaco.

The kitchen comes well equipped with any and all needed dishes, pots and pans for cooking and baking as the owners love to cook. There is a lovely new glass and shell back splash recently made by the owner and a combination washing machine and dryer behind the bi fold doors next to the pantry. There is a large eat at counter/island as well as a dining room table.

The delightful sunken living room also has high cathedral ceilings, sliders out to the front porch and dock and a large flat screen TV. You will find plenty of books and games for those lazy afternoons on the front porch. Wifi is also available. All linens are provided including beach towels.

Just across the road is the Abaco Inn, a favorite among locals for its happy hour, pool, restaurant and decks that face both the Sea of Abaco and the Atlantic. Sea Spray Marina with its restaurant and bar are just a short walk down the road. Our caretaker will meet you at your arranged ferry arrival time from Marsh Harbour and transport you to “Sandpiper”. Rentals of golf carts, boats, fishing charters and dive and snorkel trips are available through multiple businesses on the island. Reservations are recommend for busy times of the year.

Fabulous Waterfront Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Sandpiper was the perfect vacation cottage for my group! The cottage is adorable - the photos are accurate. It has an island-y feel to it, which we really liked. We like to be active on the water when we visit Abaco, and the location and the deep water dock were great. I have stayed all over the cays, but this was my first time staying in White Sound. I really enjoyed the location - it was an easy golf cart ride anywhere we needed to go. The cottage is well equipped, we cooked in a few times and enjoyed having our morning coffee and afternoon cocktail hour out on the deck with that spectacular view. The caretaker Jamie was very responsive and made sure we had everything that we needed.
The Abaco Inn was one of our favorites and we visited multiple times, but we also went to Seaspray, Capn Jack's, Firefly, On da Beach, Harbour's Edge, and the Lodge. And Wine Down Sip Sip was fabulous also! I guess we hit every establishment on the island! :-)
The food markets are all well stocked, and if one doesn't have what you are looking for just try a different one. We found that we liked the small groceries on Elbow Cay better than the "big" store in Marsh Harbour, and it sure is easier to shop local than lug stuff over on the ferry.
We totally enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper, and we can't wait to go back again! Thanks Brian, Donna, and Jamie too!

Ideal Spot

  • 5 of 5
Sandpiper is a charming house in an ideal location on Elbow Cay. The unique setting, literally on the water, is stunning. The pictures on the site are accurate and illustrate the feel of the house really well.

Both the owners and the caretaker were terrific and made the logistics easy for us to maximize our time on Elbow Cay. Being situated in the middle of the island provides multiple options in terms of beaches and restaurants.

THE MOST CHARMING COTTAGE ON THE ISLAND!!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper. It was a wonderful 9 days. The house is adorable and comfortable. The cross-ventilation was wonderful, and you can’t get any closer to the water! On a few occasions we did use the air-conditioning and they worked so well that the whole house cooled down. The well-equipped kitchen was a blessing for us as we both enjoy cooking. We bought hogfish off the boat on Friday and cooked it for 2 nights. It was one of the best fish we have ever tasted. We brought our metal detector so we spent most mornings combing the beaches, but came away with only 27 cents!! I, on the other hand, came back with some beautiful sea glass. You can walk to the beach access at Abaco Inn in 2 minutes! So convenient!

The owners were very helpful and always answered our questions before our trip. Jamie, the caretaker, did a great job. He was right there waiting for us as we got off the ferry, as was the golf cart that we rented for our time there. We did not rent a boat this time but will definitely do it the next time we are there. There was so much for us to do on the island that we didn’t feel the need to go elsewhere.

The house was perfect for the two of us. The views were incredible and the location was so convenient. Having The Foodstore literally around the corner was wonderful. We seemed to go there for one thing or another almost every day. We enjoyed eating at the Abaco Inn, Sea Spray, Water’s Edge and Firefly (our favorite). The home was so close to everything and if I had brought my walking shoes I would have had easy morning walks towards Tahiti Beach. We did lots of exploring in the golf cart and found the ride to Hopetown to be only 15 minutes! A wonderful place. Hope to return to Elbow Cay and Sandpiper Cottage sometime soon.

Artist Cottage was everything and more for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home is everything as described and more. The owners art work was a favorite as well as all the artist touches. We loved the sea glass backsplash in the kitchen. The shells and netting above the beds.The kitchen is very well stocked. Plenty of towels as well as washer and dryer came in handy during our stay. The upstairs loft is very large and comfortable. We arrived by boat very wet and Jamie was there to greet us and help us unload. The home was very spacious yet cozy. We enjoyed family meals at the dining table and puzzle building at the breakfast bar. The a/c in bedrooms was plenty cool and returning in the evenings after a day on the water the a/c was not needed in the whole house. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and watching marine life. Having the dock so close was very convenient. I noticed many rental homes with the house located across the street from their docks. We really enjoyed the location. We found we liked this end of the island better than being closer to town as the beach was closer and allowed cooler breezes. Steps away from the Abaco Inn where we stopped in for a swim and beach walk as well as watching the sunset and enjoying happy hour on the deck. Sea Spray resort within a few minutes pleasant walk was also a favorite of our kids. Sea Spray had a BBQ night for the 4th of July. We took our dock several times "around the corner" to the Firefly which was everyone's favorite spot. Heading to town to the public dock was a short cruise where we enjoyed the Coffee House and Sugar Shack after climbing the lighthouse. We found complimentary mimosas on Sunday at the Hopetown Harbour Lodge for an enjoyable breakfast before attending Mass under the big tree. We have stayed in homes on Marsh and Guana as well as some marinas in the area. I would highly recommend staying on Elbow at this home for its quiet character but with many options for dining, services and beaches. A special thanks to the owners of this property as well as caretaker Jamie for helping us out as inclement weather prevented our departure on time. We were able to wait for a safe passage back to Florida.
