We had such a nice time at Madrigal Cottage. The house was spacious and comfortable, perfect for my husband and I and our two older kids. It’s location on the North End was footsteps away from both the North End Dock as well as a public beach on the Sea of Abaco. We rented a boat from Island Marine for the week and loved the convenience of being able to dock it so close (highly recommend renting a boat during your visit and island hopping). The beach nearest the house was shallow and quiet. Perfect for kids. First day, we saw a ray swim up right where we were swimming and give us a show. We also would use the SUP from the house in the evenings as the water was so calm. A short bike ride and you can reach the Atlantic side beach if you or your kids want to crash against some waves.
The power went out several times while we were on the island but the generator kicked in seamlessly. We were SO grateful they had one! WiFi was slow but this seemed to be an island issue and not one attributed to the property (same story at all the restaurants we visited). Plus, it gave me an excuse not to be tempted to check work email.
Having the availability of the bikes was also awesome as we didn’t always feel like going through the trouble of firing up the boat to go into the settlement. We ended up renting a fourth/smaller bike from The Bike Shop for our daughter to use (she’s 10 so the adult ones provided were a little too big). The road to town is a little hilly and there are lots of potholes to dodge so it’s not really for a novice bike rider/small child but our family did fine. A golf cart would have been ideal for quicker trips but they were all taken by the time I checked on renting one (recommend doing this at the same time you rent your house... they go fast). And while restaurants will come pick you up if you call, they won’t come to the North End so you gotta make it into the settlement for the shuttles. Toughening it out on bikes “works” but once you see everyone on carts, you’re going to want one.
All in all, we had a fabulous visit. Both Lisa (owner) and Hillary (property manager) were super responsive and helpful. Despite the minor effort it takes to get into the settlement, the North End location seems head and shoulders about anywhere else on Elbow Cay. Would highly recommend and hope we can make it back one day!
We loved hosting you and hope to see you again!
Lisa and Morgan
The location of this home is perfect on the north end of Hopetown. Very quiet area, but a close enough golf cart ride into the settlement when you want. The home is literally right next to the north end public dock making it a quick walk to your boat. The home is very clean and was an ideal layout for our family of 4. The owners Morgan and Lisa were great to deal with and very quick to respond to any of our needs.
Wonderful Property/Great Location
The first thing you notice upon arrival is how beautiful and lush the property is, you definitely feel like you are in the islands.
The house has everything you need and was as described in the listing.
There is an amazing little beach 45 seconds from the door that adds to the experience where the water is calm and shallow for a relaxing swim.
The dock is very convenient to the house as well, again just another very short walk.
I highly recommend grabbing one of the bikes and take a ride into town, what a cool experience with beautiful views all along the way.
Communication with the owners was easy and very quick to respond.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great island adventure!!
Perfect Vacation Home!
We had a group of 4 and this house was perfect! It was in a great location with beaches nearby and a 7 minute golf cart ride to Hope Town. You are not able to drive a golf cart through Hope Town to get to the Southern part of Elbow Cay but we didn't find this to be a huge issue as all restaurants and bars provided transportation. Theslips are also right across the street if you're renting a boat, which we would definitely recommend. The house had everything you need for a comfortable stay and was very clean. The property manager was also very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here and we will be returning for another trip!
Thank you so much for your nice review. We hope to see you again soon!
We loved it!
We felt at home immediately in our tropical paradise. We loved how close the house is to the beaches and yet tucked away in a lush landscape.
We had a wonderful experience on the North End of Elbow Cay. The house had everything we needed and the access to the beach and to Nathan's cove was perfect. Using the North End Dock also was ideal. Can't wait to come back!
Thank you Karen, we look forward to your return!
