I am retired from the corporate custom furniture business and now am a full time private investor. My wife and daughter are in the wholesale fashion industry representing fashion forward European lines. My wife will completely retire in the near future when our daughter is at the stage to take over that business.
Don Harrower purchased this house in 1991
We were originally attracted to the out islands as my wife's parents built a retirement home next door to our present location. We both fell in love with the Bahamas and have been coming here for over 40 years. We built next door to my in laws when the property came available and would still build here even if we had to do it all over again. It is well situated - perfect sunsets everyday which is important to us, good shoreline for a dock and boating and most important - great location for protection against hurricanes. To be doubly protective, we built a concrete block home that has stood the test of many a hurricane . We finished our home in 1991 and have been constantly upgrading it ever since.
We get up every day and look out over those waters and realize how incredibly lucky we are to be able to spend time is this amazing part of the world.
We find it harder to leave this place every year and all the original things that attracted us to the islands , attract us even more each year - the phenomenal natural beauty of the Abacos, those turquoise waters, boating, snorkeling, fishing,
the beaches and of course the local friends we have made. The island has grown up so much over the last 30 years , we do love our food and wine and we are now getting some great restaurants opening and we look forward to some wonderful meals with friends and family for years to come.
AMAZING vacation, we just did three weeks here and the owner Don harrower is the best...very helpful, large home, perfect dock for boats, great pool....everything was perfect for us...highly recomend this property
Have stayed before and would not consider any other location in the Abaco's. Owner was great to work with, was responsive to our questions and the recommendations for all our needs, like cart, boats, groceries etc were spot on. It was a birthday week for one of my daughters so house was full. Comments:
I think the serenity was all one could ask for. Every view from the house was a Garden of Eden on the Bay, with no other houses in sight. The nearby "boat-free snorkeling" was a big surprise and was perfect for a spur of the moment "snork". Whether we wanted companionship or quiet "Conched Out" has something for everyone.
The house is great for a large group – there are so many places to be that we never felt as though we were on top of each other. Having stayed before, the best thing about this visit was definitely the pool. We probably spent most of our outdoor time at the pool and with a covered area as well, there was plenty of space for everyone, no matter their sun desires. It’s clear that Don (and the caretakers Sherman and Wilma) take great pride in keeping the house well maintained and clean and are incredibly helpful in responding to any queries.
Back to the bottom line!! Rent it. You can't go wrong!!
Just got back from a week at this beautiful home. We were a family of 6 adults and 2 children under two. It was absolutely perfect in every way. It was the first time we have ever rented a home with a pool and now it will be a must! If we weren't in the boat, we were in the pool. The view was unbeatable. We have been to Elbow Cay several times and it is a great, relaxing island - and also the friendliest I have been to. If you are an architect and into wood, you will also totally appreciate this home (as my husband did)!
My family of 5 (husband and 3 daughters 8-19) spent a blissful week at Conched Out. Where to begin? I guess from the moment you arrive (we did by boat thanks to the private dock) you can tell you are in a special place. Actually it starts even before you arrive as the owner Don Harrower could not be more helpful and accommodating. Even before we committed to his house he had given us valuable advice on flights, boat rental companies etc...and then once we booked he lined us up with his delightful team of drivers and house managers who made every transition seemless and easy.
This house has it all--literally. Private dock, swimming pool, breathtaking views and plenty of space. We were just our family, but there's more than enough room for a family reunion or 2 families -- making the price yet another positive. It's also right next door to the best restaurant on the island. The house was impeccably clean and the perfect place to begin and end every day. At the risk of competing with another family some day, we cannot recommend Conched Out enough!
Conched Out was the perfect house for us! This is our third visit to Elbow Cay and Conched out was by far the BEST house we have stayed in. We had a total of 4 adults, 3 children and an infant and each one of us had an amazing vacation. The location, the pool, the cupola, the dock (perfect for a boat) kept everyone entertained. My boys loved reading about the owners dog Luke and his Abaco Adventures. Overall, a fantastic house and we highly recommend. All week, my 3 boys kept asking us "next year can we stay for 2 weeks"- I hope so! Thank you for opening up your home to us.
We spent 2 weeks celebrating my birthday with friends at the house and it could not have been better - the house is fabulous, the views are amazing and the island is the friendliest one we've visited to date. We will definitely be back over and over again!
