Needs some work

  • 3 of 5
Second year renting this beautiful home. The location cannot be more perfect for my family. We really enjoy the private dock and close proximity to Sea Spray, Abaco Inn, and Tahiti Beach. The home is well appointed and extremely comfortable. We travel with our adult children and their spouses and we are all very comfortable in Abaco Vista! A couple issues/suggestions from this last trip: it's odd to me that given the cost of the property that renters then have to go spend additional money on toiletry items that should be included: I had to buy toilette tissues (on day two), paper towels, dishwashing detergent and dish washing soap! The air conditioner kept throwing the breakers so each day we arrived to a hot home that took hours to cool. The dishwasher/kitchen sink is leaking and the refrigerator does not cool properly and there was no dust pan to pick up the daily sand that finds it's way inside. The clothes dryer takes forever the dry anything and the master bedroom balcony door is rusted closed. But by far the most annoying issue was the house keeper who mis-placed her cell phone on the day we arrived and basically accused us of stealing it when she could not locate it. It seemed like each day one of our group would run into her in town and be harassed about the whereabouts of her cell phone - very uncomfortable to say the least!
We still like Abaco Vista but think some changes and improvements are necessary!

Owner's Response: While we appreciate the positive aspects of this review, it is very rare to hear of any guest being the least bit unhappy after staying at Abaco Vistas and we are saddened by this and take this very seriously. We were at the house personally just before this rental and the house appeared to be in perfect condition and well stocked. We have gone over this review with our caretaker, the leak in the kitchen is repaired and the dust pan will be replaced. We also discussed the unusual cell phone situation and regret any misunderstandings.

As for the electric problems, Bahamas Electric Corp is notorious for brown outs and voltage drops. The voltage drops cause the refrigerator and the air conditioning to not cool properly. If there is low voltage, the dryer will not heat up properly either. This is out of our control and happens once in a while when there is high electric demand on the island . . . part of island life. We will closely monitor this over the next few weeks to make sure there is nothing out of the ordinary.

We appreciate any feedback that can help maintain Abaco Vistas as such a desirable property and are addressing everything that is within our control.

Perfect Home for a Two Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Abaco Vistas during Christmas week, 2012. The home was perfect for our two families, looking to get away from the hectic times back home. It was conveniently positioned between the Sea Spray Marina and the Abaco Inn. The home was beautifully furnished and decorated. The views from every room were spectacular. The owners were very helpful and have placed the care of their home in the very capable hands of Sherman and his wife. They were all very helpful and did all they could to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

We can't say enough good things about Elbow Cay itself. It is now our favorite island in the Bahamas. Hope Town is just the right size for the island and has a great vibe to it. The restaurants are good, predictably pricey and just a golf cart ride away. Our favorites were the Firefly (watched the Ravens game and met some fellow fans), Abaco Inn and On Da Beach... but for the price, you just couldn't beat Munchies. It was very popular with the locals and had great, reasonably priced food, albeit in a "rustic" setting. Don't let the appearance fool you, Munchies was our kid's favorite place to eat on Elbow.

We were also fortunate that Junkanoo was being celebrated at the Sea Spray while we were there. It was a great time! The parade was a blast and the kids loved it. It gave us a rare look at some of the region's culture.

We rented a boat for a few days, tied it up to the dock at Abaco Vistas and explored the islands surrounding Elbow. We did a little snorkeling, even though the weather was chilly. Mermaid reef, near Marsh Harbour, was the best place where we snorkeled on this trip. There were better places nearby, but the weather was just too chilly to do much more in the water. Nippers on Great Guana was a "must do". The food was excellent (best conch of the trip), the drinks were "dangerously" good (the rum can sneak up on you) and the views were breathtaking. If you have small children, we recommend avoiding the festivities on Sundays. It can get a bit crazy. We were there on a Monday and it was perfect for all of us.

We plan to go back to Elbow again next year and will look to stay at Abaco Vistas again.

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5
We had a party of four couples and had an absolutely wonderful week. We rented a boat on the main land for our entire week and enjoyed island hopping to taste the signiture rum drinks offered by the numerous bars. we really enjoyed the tiki bar at Firefly which is relatively new and a short distance by boat or golf carts. Overall our stay was fantastic and I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful home.

We've just returned home -- unfortunately! -- from spending 8 nights at 'Abaco Vistas', and can hardly wait until we can go there again. The house is fantastic, all as described on the website, if not better. Fabulous location for boaters, with its dock literally a stone's throw away. The owners were very helpful in promptly answering questions by email before and during our stay, and caretakers Sherman and Wilma provided speedy and exceptionally friendly hands-on help with any minor matters that arose during our stay. (They were a true delight, almost inducing us to invent house-related issues just so that we could spend more time with them.) Elbow Cay and Hopetown are delightful, and the Abaco islands are a boater's paradise. Golf carts for on-island transportation mix fun and function -- rent them from Sherman's 'Elbow Cay Carts'. Our only minor holiday complaint was unlucky timing on a windy week of fairly rough seas -- otherwise all was great. We will be back!

Bahama Break at Abaco Vista

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous place... Perfectly perched between the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the bay on the other... Within walking distance to a great little restaurant and pool for relaxing. The bay side which is across the "cart path" (as most people drive golf carts on Elbow Cay) from the house has a dock with easy in and out to Abaco Bay and all the other islands.

The house is designed to accommodate 4 couples with one bed room having twin beds for friends.. It is split up so that you can have privacy if you want or meet in the large living room and dining area for larger gatherings... There are porches on the east and west sides of the house so you can get out of the sun if needed.

The picture above does not show the recent landscaping in front that adds to the overall comfortable splendor of this house. It was a perfect place to take a break.

Owner's Response: The layout of Abaco Vistas gives you the best of both worlds. Watch the sun rise over the ocean from the spacious back deck as the waves rush in or off of two of the bedroom balconies. Watch the beautiful sunsets from the front deck of the house overlooking White Sound or the other two guest room decks. Our house has great space for entertaining and 4 great bedrooms all with private en suite baths. Cook a Bahamian feast in the gourmet kitchen or walk to the Abaco Inn and/or Sea Spray for a wonderful dinner. Our dock comfortably holds two boats and with easy access right across the street you can venture off and do some of the finest snorkeling in the world or take a 10 minute golf cart ride to Tahiti Beach and spend the day there. Our house is one of the newest homes on the Island and I think one of the nicest ones as well.
