Overview

Bahamas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths & 2nd H&C Outdoor Shower, Private Beach, Quiet & Relaxing

A vacation spot like this comes along once in a BLUE MOON! Accessed by water taxi from Marsh Harbour, Blue Moon Cottage was the first school house built in White Sound on Elbow Cay. It has been renovated into a bright Two Bedroom, Bahamian beach cottage with GENERATOR. Decorated in bright island fashion Blue Moon is sure to please!

The Master bedroom has a king-size bed connecting to an ensuite full bathroom . It has a private door leading to an east facing deck and an upper flying deck with Atlantic ocean sunrise views.

The guest room has a queen bed with it's own full bathroom and it's own private door to the upper and lower East deck.

Across the golf cart road is our own private beach access to the Atlantic Ocean.. Surf, swim, collect shells and walk on a virtually deserted beach with beautiful blue water and great surf waves.

You will find the kitchen well equipped along with a gas grill outside overlooking the Abaco sea.. and an outside dining area in the breezeway has a fun mural painted on the wall.

Additionally we also have a wonderful outdoor shower with hot and cold water with a view of the abaco sea. Why shower inside when you can get 'native' with hot and cold water shower outside... with a view!

Watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Abaco Sea from the Flying Deck. Enjoy 360 views and wonderful breeze. The best place around for a morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail!

A shallow water boat dock is availble a few yards away with reservation.

There are lots of games, books and music to keep yourself busy if you find yourself indoors as well as Satellite TV and internet.

When you visit Hopetown and Blue Moon Cottage, you will immediately relax. From the oversized sliding glass doors in the living area you can view the beautiful Abaco Sea and feel the fresh breeze from the Atlantic ocean.. (both just feet away) from our large decks.

Relax in hammocks and comfortable deck furniture. There is no hustle and bustle. No crazy schedules. Rent a golf cart or boat to explore the island and waters or just hang out at your home away from home!

Blue Moon is across a small golf cart path from the Abaco Inn where you will find a first class restaurant& pool and the locals favorite bar. Down the tiny golf cart path south, is Sea Spray Marina, with docks and outside restaurant/ bar. It is open for for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also it is a wonderful place to just hang out after a big day at the beach or boating.

The new Firefly resort is just a short golf cart ride away.. A great place to hang out and enjoy the pool and bar and watch a sunset or two.

About Shae Singer

After sailing thru the Bahamian Islands for many years I finally decide to throw out the anchor and put down roots with a cottage. Hope Town has all the amenities one could desire while still retaining is small (only 6 miles long) island feel.

Shae Singer purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Shae Singer chose Bahamas

With views of the Abaco Sea and The Atlantic ocean only a few fee away we are on on the narrowest part o the island.. sea breeze all the time and views that are amazing. Walk to the Abaco Inn or Sea Spray for a drink, snack or dinner (makes it easy if you do not want to cook). Across the small golf cart path is our winding path to our private beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Come join and enjoy Blue Moon Cottage as much as we do!

We also include a generator to ensure you have an amazing stay, regardless of the power grid! This is a very rare and coveited feature! Also weekly maid service is included for a 7 day stay.

What makes this cottage unique

Views! Views! Views! Location! Location! Location!

Blue Moon Cottage has it all while retaining a laid back Bahamian Funk and fun feel! All the comforts of home in your third world paradise!!

Perfect location for total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a totally relaxing week at Blue Moon Cottage. We have previously stayed in town but loved being on the South End at Blue Moon. Close to Abaco Inn and SeaSpray which we visited at least once daily for dinner (mostly take out) or cocktails. We spent many nights listening to music on the covered porch just soaking in the sights and sounds as the sun went down and loving every minute. Although there are houses close by you still have the feel of being in your own little world. If you can't relax here - You can't relax anywhere. We had frequent visits from a hummingbird, resident cat Phantom as well as some Island dogs coming to check out what we were having for dinner. Having the private dock close by was key to our trip as we had rented a boat from Island Marine and didn't have to deal with worrying about a spot at a public dock.

Exceeded Lofty Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an 8 day stay at Blue Moon with my wife and two kids (ages 8 and 10). We absolutely loved our stay on Elbow Cay. The cottage was set up perfectly for our family and we were very comfortable. Outdoor shower was the way to go, and the covered porch with sea of Abaco views was a nice respite from the sun in the afternoons. The beach across the street was amazing. Great tide pooling and snorkeling when the waves are down. Very quiet! We also used the dock every day for pick up/drop off on our friends' boat they rented in Marsh Harbor. White Sound harbor was a very convenient place to head out on our daily boat excursions. We snorkeled/shelled at Tahiti Beach, Johnny's Cay, Tilloo Cay; lunched and lounged in Hope Town, Great Guana Cay, Lubbers Cay; snorkeled from the boat at a few reefs. We also had a golf cart that was good for evening rides around the island. We were surprised at how quiet and laid back the Abacos is. Just what we were looking for. We will be back!

Peaceful and friendly

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Blue Moon Cottage on Elbow Cay in the Abacos. It's a wonderful place, both the cottage and the island. The cottage is clean and comfortable and well laid out, with a terrific flying deck above that has views of both the ocean and the sea or bay separating Elbow Cay from Abaco Island. The weather was a little mixed - occasionally cool and blustery - but it hardly mattered because the whole experience was so relaxed, we gotten into the pace of it right away. Great TV available in the cottage if it does rain a bit. The bed was very comfortable, which is more than you can expect in any rental. The cottage is in a cluster of other little cottages which gives it almost a compound type of feel, and yet is still very private. The people in the other cottages were very friendly, wonderful people. That was actually true all over the island - everyone was as friendly and welcoming as one could hope for. The Abaco Inn is very close and it quickly becomes your clubhouse if you want. Good food, great drinks, sunsets, sunrises, folks gathering for coffee in the morning, all overseen by Tom, the manager, who is a great guy. Firefly for lunch is also excellent, as is the town and harbor. I love getting around by golf cart. All in all, a wonderful experience, and I'll look forward to returning.

Great Gem

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the Blue Moon. Loved the views from the upstairs deck. Started & ended each day up there. The outdoor shower was great. The private boat dock was really convenient. Having the beach access across the street was nice. Great beach for finding sea shells. Judy the caretaker was a lot of help. Thank you Shea for all the advice & suggestions on places to go & food to try. Your great gem was a wonderful place for our 35th anniversary. We can not thank you enough. Hope to be back again.

Cozy cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage has a good location on Elbow Cay. Within waling walking distance to The Abaco Inn and SeaSpray Marina and Hopetown is just a 12 minute golf cart ride. The cottage was well equipped and plenty of room for my wife and I, and we loved taking "Navy Showers" in the outdoor shower. A set of new frying pans could be in order. The dock was great for those that rent a boat. There is a trail across the street that will take you to the ocean side for walks along the beach. I would have given this a higher review but as of this posting, the owner still has an outdated picture of the cottage on the listing. Unfortunately a house has been built between Blue Moon Cottage and the dock, so the view has been diminished. Also there is only one full bath accessible from both bedrooms, with a sink in the master bedroom and the outside shower.

Owner's Response: The hedge in question been trimmed and there are now sea views from most decks. Of course the flying deck proves 360 degree views of the atlantic ocean as well as the sea of Abaco. Blue Moon cottage now has two full bathrooms so each of our king and queen bedrooms has it's own private ensuite full bath..as well as the ever popular outside hot and cold water shower!
