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 schoolhouse built in White Sound on Elbow Cay. It has been renovated into a bright two Bedroom, two bathroom Bahamian beach cottage with automatic GENERATOR. Decorated in bright island fashion -Blue Moon Cottage is sure to please!
The Master bedroom has a king-size bed connecting to an en- suite 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 its own full bathroom and its own private door to the upper and lower East deck.
Across the golf cart path is your 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. This beach is fun at low tide when you can sit in the tidal pools and feel like you have your own "natural hot tub"
You will find the kitchen well equipped along with a gas grill outside overlooking the Abaco sea.. with an outside dining area. The breezeway has a fun mural painted on the wall.
Additionally, we also have a wonderful outdoor shower with hot and cold water. 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!
There are games, books and music to keep yourself busy if you find yourself indoors as well as Satellite TV and Wifi.
When you visit Hope Town 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 (sometimes palm fronds blow in the wind and view before they are trimmed) and feel the fresh breeze from the Atlantic Ocean from our large decks.
Relax in a hammock and on the 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!
Dock rental is available a short walk or golf cart distance.
Blue Moon Cottage is across the golf cart road from the Abaco Inn, where you will find a wonderful restaurant & pool - and the locals favorite bar. Head down the cart path a bit further south and you will find Sea Spray Marina with docks and an outside restaurant & bar. Sea Spray Marina open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also it is a wonderful place to just hang out after a big day at the beach or out on the water.
The new Firefly resort is just a short golf cart ride away as well. 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 Elbow Cay
With views of the Abaco Sea and The Atlantic ocean only a few fee away we are on on the narrowest part of 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 longer than a 7 day stay. Please confirm with our caretaker if you wish this service.
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!!

Amazing cottage on an amazing island! Elbow caye is a quiet island with great people, great food and great beaches. Blue moon Cottage is in the perfect location, half way between Tahiti beach and hope town. Also, has the Atlantic and the bay side of the island feet away, as well as both visible from the top deck. Chad the caretaker and his dad Rick were super helpful and helped us get our things from the ferry to the house. Shae was super helpful organizing our arrival and getting our taxi from the airport to the ferry as well as getting our bikes we used during our stay.
Good to someday return!
Thanks Shae, Chad and Rick!
You are so welcome!! come again soon!
Vacation in paradise.
The Blue Moon was a great suprise, comfortable and laid back. Our rooms and porch was
very nice and quaint. We have given our info to a friend who might want to experience the
Only drawback was not enough wash clothes in the baths. Advised the person who was there when we left. Thank you so much for a great vacation place.

Blue moon Cottage. Elbow Cay Bahamas
Everything was just as was told us by the property owner. We appreciated all that she was able to share with us before our stay. A lovely little cottage in a lovely setting!!
Thank you! we hope you will return again !
Perfect for our group!
This cottage has loads of indoor and outdoor seating and we made the most of all of it! Beautiful decor without being stuffy - we felt very comfortable. It is roomy, and having two full baths for 4 people is a real plus. The magic water making machine really is magic - what a great addition! The caretaker checked on us a couple of times without being intrusive. The kitchen is well equipped and we did quite a bit of cooking while there. I highly recommend this cottage - great for two couples!
Fell Short of Expectations
We stayed at Blue Moon for 16 days over the Christmas – New Year period. Here are our pro’s and con’s:
• This is the sixth house we’ve rented in the Bahamas. Shae was by far the most responsive in communicating and providing information.
• Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom which makes it great for two couples.
• Having its own generator is a plus as power went out a number of times on the island.
• Conveniently located between Abaco Inn and Sea Spray Resort.
• Cottage is well appointed with everything you need. Beds were more comfortable than normally found.
• The picture in the site is dated. The cottage is no longer visible from the dock as a house has been built in between.
• Dock was difficult to access due to construction.
• Private beach is nice, but entering the water is a challenge because of rocks & coral.
• No laundry in the home. Sheets and towels were not refreshed during our 16 day stay.
We rated the property a 3. The picture showing the ‘view from the dock’ was one of the considerations in choosing Blue Moon. It misrepresented what we would see from the cottage.
Very comfortable clean cute cottage
Great location . Has pier and generator which is a must for us.
Thanks Nick- We hope you will choose to return again and again!
Blue Moon Cottage is located on the quiet end of the island close to the famous Tahiti Beach, Abaco Inn, Sea Spray Marina and Firefly. Walk, bike or golf cart around the 6 1/2 mile long island and enjoy white sand beaches, friendly people and a taste of the real Bahamas.
