About Jane and Peter

We are a family of 5, three children OUT OF THE HOUSE and a golden retriever, TAZ. After growing up in the suburbs of New York and Boston we met after college in Nantucket, MA where all three of our boys were born. To escape those, long, cold, harsh winters we moved our family to Hilton Head Island, SC in 1992 where we currently live. Our kids have always had a love of the water and 'island living' (although they have chosen metropolitan areas to attend college and live, temporarily).

Our love of the water (and surfing) have taken us on vacations to Costa Rica, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Barbados, Mexico and now Elbow Cay.

Jane and Peter purchased this house in 2008

Why Jane and Peter chose Elbow Cay and Hope Town

We decided to build our DREAM vacation home after our first visit to Elbow Cay. We stayed with friends in White Sound and from the minute we got off the ferry we absolutely fell in love. It reminded us so much of our days on Nantucket and how it used to be 30+ years ago. The beaches with their beautiful coral shaded sand and crystal clear turquoise water are second to none. Not to mention how hospitable and friendly EVERYONE is. It is the perfect place to escape, unwind, relax and create many memories!!!!

What makes this house unique

Our goal was to build a vacation home in keeping with the 'Bahamas' theme of bright colors and coastal decorations, along with all the modern amenities one would want to make for a perfect stay.

Catch A Wave's location in the White Sound area has some definite advantages. First of all, being on the South side facing the ocean there is always a breeze, unlike in town or facing the Sea of Abaco. This especially makes a huge difference in the summer months. We are right up the street from the Sea Spray and a short walk to Tahiti Beach and only minutes by golf cart to other beaches and town. And.. in the summer, when power outages are a common occurrence, we have an automatic full house generator.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is beautiful. The colors & decorations are fun & vibrant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The food on this island is some of the best we’ve had in the Bahamas. Thanks so much.

Good Times for all

  • 5 of 5
Catch A Wave is a very clean, up-to-date place to stay while at Elbow Cay. The location was close to town while also being close to Tahiti Beach. We enjoyed our short golf cart rides to markets, marinas, and restaurants. The kids enjoyed the pool each day, while my wife enjoyed quiet peaceful time on the deck reading a book. We all enjoyed the great views. We went to either Tahiti Beach or Hopetown Lodge Beach everyday. We had frequent contact with the owner throughout our trip for advice in addition to being able to contact their caretaker. My wife, who is a decorator, loved the interior. We really had a great time!

Elbow Cay Charm!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I couldn't get our boat over this summer so we decide to rent a house. Scrambling to find accommodations in a short time frame we weren't sure what we would find available and was I ever happy to find Catch A Wave. This house is absolutely wonderful. A few steps from the beach Atlantic side, view to White Sound and the beach was beautiful. The house is beautifully done with a great nautical/beach décor. Each room was decorated very tastefully. I fell in love with it! We will definitely use again. Very centrally located.

wonderful vacation home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Catch A Wave is a great house in perfect location for a wonderful family holiday. It was thoughtfully designed and decorated and it comes stocked with everything you need. We loved the whole house AC, seamlessly integrated generator, perfect sized pool and ample sun deck. The house was a good size too with plenty of room for our extended family of 5. The bedrooms were also nice with 2 singles and one queen sharing a nice bathroom and then a separate master king with its own bath and deck. The location is far enough away from town to feel private but close enough to Tahiti Beach and a few restaurants, store, etc to be very convenient. We really have nothing but good things to say and would return. Don't hesitate to Catch A Wave, you won't be disappointed.

Catch a Wave was obviusly built by people who love fun, beauty, and good living! And the owners have getting there down to a science, so easy to do with all their planning. I would have never figured this out on my own! The Cay, the neighborhood, the house with pool, the design, the decor...All the best. Always something to do on Elbow Cay in the many restaurants, live music, Kareoke, Bingo. Food out was great anywhere we went. Local people just amazing and welcoming. We had the best of all worlds, slow sunrise mornings having coffe on the deck, long leisurly walks exploring all the more beautiful than the next beaches, or Hopetown,afternoon cocktails at the beach, or on the deck, then nights out with entertainment. Or nights in with shared cooking, and games. In the late winter there was always one side of the Island that was protected from any breezes that might have been too cool, I loved that! We practically lived outdoors, which was even better. When we were inside, the fun exciting colors and decor kept us just as happy. Great job on making us want to just move there! Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
PS I also am an Island Vacation rental owner, and have gotten many ideas from your home I hope to use in mine to make guests so comfortable!

Great house... owner pays attention to all the details.

  • 4 of 5
Very nice home with all the amenities. You can tell the owner goes out of her way to make sure all the details are right. Elbow Cay is a really nice place as well. Great food... nice beaches. Highly recommend getting a boat. Go down and talk to Junior at the Sea Spray. Great guy and he can point you in the right direction. Only thing I would point out is that the Abacos are not really tropical year round. Just like Florida, you can have some days where you end up in Sweatshirts and jeans even in March. Also, if it is cool and the wind is ripping from the north, it really limits your options as far as boating goes. That said, it's a beautiful place. Tahiti Beach (just down the street) was amazing for our kids and we could have eaten at Firefly and Sea Spray every night. We hit Disney World on our way back at the end of the trip, and our kids both thought the Abacos was their favorite part of the vacation. That should tell you something.

Caught the wave

  • 5 of 5
My first experience on Elbow Cay and I must say it was everything we had hope for despite the cold weather front that came through.

Catch a wave was the perfect place to stay. It's location was perfectly situated between Hope Town and Tahiti Beach, with Sea Spray Marina and the Abaco Inn within a 2 minute golf cart ride. Also, the best grocery store on the island by far is "the food store" and it's about 5 minutes from the house.

The house itself was much nicer than the photos that we saw online which was a very pleasant surprise. The house has lots of room and is very comfortable. It's extremely well maintained, has a great kitchen and a HUGE deck that allows you to have good views of both the ocean as well as the sea of Abaco. The beach in front of the house is accessible and is just a short walk from the house. However, I would go to Tahiti Beach at low tide every day possible, unless you rent a boat and want to explore (which I highly recommend).

Best dining on the island goes to Firefly Resort, lunch at Abaco Inn & On da Beach bar & grill are both excellent lunch choices.

Hope Town has Lighthouse Liquor store which is the best on the island for both selection and price. Wine Down Sip Sip is a good place for a drink, but the food is not worth the money as their portions are tiny. Hope Town Lodge would be another good place for both lunch at the Reef Bar or their more formal dining room for dinner. Hope Town Coffee House has great muffins, scones, panini sandwiches and quiche.

Renting a boat is a must. We used Island Marine and were extremely pleased. You can rent one for more than one day and negotiate with Sea Spray Marina to dock the boat there, which is only 2 minutes from the house. They told us as long as we frequented their bar or restaurant they wouldn't charge us to dock the boat. We only rented the boat for a day, but we did frequent their outdoor bar and the manager (Junior) took extremely good care of us during our entire trip.

I've traveled all over the Caribbean and absolutely loved Elbow Cay and our stay at Catch a Wave, we will definitely return. The house was great and there's enough to do on the island to keep you occupied and if you rent a boat there's so much more to see and do...
