Overview

Elbow Cay and Hope Town Cottage Rental Photos and Description

The floor plan includes two bedrooms, two full baths, sleeps 4-6

This beautiful vacation rental in the Bahamas is absolutely on the ocean with adjoining frontage and a private dock in White Sound Bay on Elbow Cay Island. A two bedroom, two bath, air-conditioned beachfront cottage that makes for an outstanding 'out island' experience. Situated on a ridge, Seascape offers the best of both worlds: a breathtaking view of Sea of Abaco from its spacious rear deck and the roar of the ocean waves on the front. This dual frontage is unique on the island and only shared with two other houses. Seascape's floor plan includes two bedrooms, two full baths, and a convertible sofa to sleep two additional people in the living area. Air conditioning is provided for the two bedrooms to insure your comfort on hot summer evenings. The house comes complete with cooking utensils, place settings for six, glasses, bed linens and towels. You have your own private dock directly at the rear of the property. High speed internet and satellite TV are furnished.

Seascape is located on White Sound Bay on Elbow Cay Island. This is a small island approximately 190 miles east of Florida. Temperatures average in the 70's in the winter and the 80's in the summer. The ocean breezes flow through the rooms making it comfortable year round. White Sound is less than a ten minute boat ride from the quaint settlement of Hope Town and its famous 'candy-striped' lighthouse. The inhabitants of Hope Town are descendants of the Loyalists who fled the Carolinas during the Revolutionary War. They still speak the dialect of their ancestors. Hope Town is nestled in a picturesque harbor and the vibrant reds, pinks, and yellows of the native hibiscus and bougainvillaea surround the Cape Cod style homes.

Transportation around the island is mostly by boat or on foot. Bicycles and golf carts can be rented by the day or week. You will find Hope Town to be quite charming. There are several small grocery stores, a liquor store, bakery, straw shop, gift shops, a museum, and churches. There are a number of island restaurants, some of which are Sea Spray, Captain Jack's, The Harbor's Edge and the Abaco Inn. These restaurants serve delicious grouper, conch, lobster (in season) and other excellent native dishes. Shorts are all that is required for formal dress.

We have installed a Sirius Satellite radio receiver in the house. After you return home I think you will find yourself missing commercial free programming. This certainly solved my frustration with radio reception in the islands. I also arranged to have an Wireless internet connection for a laptop computer. Their service is much faster than my own at home via two way satellite and much in line with cable. The satellite TV has never caused any problems but I have placed an extra TV in the basement should that portion of the link fail. With this location goes the problems of salt corrosion on every thing that has any metal parts. In our effort to assure reliability of all the many mechanical devices that are subjected to this salt environment we have on hand extra AC units, refrigerator and a water heater in storage.

The house location on the map is in error. The pointer should be on the narrow strip of land separating the bay and the ocean and not in the middle of the bay. Please send me an email and I will forward you satellite view of the house location along with a panoramic video on You Tube taken from the top deck.

Great week at Seascape

  • 5 of 5

My wife, teenage son and I just got back from Elbow Cay and the Seascape home. The pictures represent it well. It is right on White Sound and you can swim and snorkel right off the dock and beach. The ocean is across the very small street but was too rough to get in while we were there. The home was clean and has great A/C in the bedrooms. They will cool the home off with doors closed. The home is located toward the south end of the island and is a short golf cart ride to Hopetown, many restaurants and other beaches. We really enjoyed Seaspray Resort and Marina, The Abaco Inn and the Hopetown Lodge. Tahiti Beach, to the South, was a must see. Oh, the back deck and rooftop deck were tremendous. Internet and satellite TV worked fine. We would definitely recommend this very affordable home to anyone.

Notes:
You will notice our property is priced below the market. This cost does not reflect the quality of the house. It has by far one of the best locations on the island. We have many returning guests and are holding the cost down. It is a consensus among many owners to have a high rental fee to reduce the number of dates occupied reducing wear and tear. This method of reasoning will still maintain about the same net bottom line income. There is also an influx of many new houses that are owned solely for the very seldom use by the owners and never put on the rental market. Both of these tendencies are a detriment to the local economy that depend on a high volume of tourist trade to flourish. I have decided not to participate in this line of reasoning.
