Overview

Hope Town House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Abaco Blue is an absolute waterfront, refurbished property with stunning views of the Sea of Abaco. Just 20 minutes walk South of the Hope Town settlement the house is situated in the quiet neighborhood of Lucayos which gives lots of privacy and peace.

The main house has a huge sitting area with windows and doors on 3 sides giving panoramic views of the Sea of Abaco and Parrot Cay. There are 2 big master bedrooms with king beds, walk in closets and new en suite bathrooms. Both bedrooms have large sliding doors that give great views and direct access onto the deck. The kitchen is brand new and has granite tops and all facilities.

Downstairs, with its own patio and great views, is a self contained apartment (known as Baby Blue) with twin beds, a sitting area, new bathroom and fully equipped kitchen (including granite counter tops).

The house is ideal for 3 couples or teenage children who want their own space!

The whole house is air conditioned, has wifi broadband access at no additional charge and has a back up generator - very important on the islands as there are frequent power cuts between April and November.

We have a wonderful covered gazebo and steps lead straight into an infinity plunge pool overlooking the Sea of Abaco

A grocery store and beach bar are 10 minutes walk away.

There is a private boat dock in the harbour included in the rental price.

The house enjoys wonderful sunsets and is the perfect base for exploring the historic settlement of Hope Town and Elbow Cay.

Why The Owner chose Bahamas

We fell in love with Hope Town the first time we visited in 2007 and were lucky enough to find Abaco Blue on the last day of house hunting. We were immediately struck by the wonderful waterfront location that gives stunning views from every room. The house has a lovely tropical garden and we enjoy watching the butterflies and birds, especially the hummingbirds and woodpeckers. We use the deck, gazebo and pool everyday and love to watch the boats pass by.

What makes this house unique

We have renovated our home since purchasing it and it has new kitchens and bathrooms. The gazebo and pool have been built over the last 2 years. It has been upgraded to a very high standard and all of the appliances are new. It is a light, sunny, happy beach house that provides a great base for your Hope Town holiday. We are in a beautiful quiet area but close enough to walk into Hope Town or just take a 5 minute golf cart drive to any of the wonderful beaches. Our community dock is available for you to use and you will enjoy meeting our neighbors.

Regarding our recent stay at Abaco Blue nothing but wonderful things to say. The house was lovely and just as pictured, the accommodations perfect for the guests included, the view breathtaking and the location one of the best on the island.

Loved every minute of it, and look forward to coming back!!

Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful home and the neighbors are so engaging and full of knowledge of the island…gave us a great snorkeling location!!

Truly paradise!!

Fabulous week at Abaco Blue!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this lovely home!!! The gazebo and pool overlooking the Sea of Abaco was breathtaking and we can't wait for our next visit. The electricity went off a couple of times and the generator kicked in immediately so no issues there. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked / grilled several nights, not wanting to leave our beautiful oasis and sunsets!!! We found the beds very comfortable. This property was centrally located on the island - about half way between town and Tahiti Beach (this was our favorite!). There are several grocery/liquor stores close by. Our favorite place for lunch and afternoon cocktails was On Da Beach. Also enjoyed Abaco Inn (don't miss the tuna!), Hopetown Inn & Marina (accessible only by boat, but they will pick you up in town in their pontoon boat), and Harbor's Edge in town. Hopetown Hideways was excellent to work with.

Amazing Birthday trip.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Abaco Blue and it was wonderful. The house is gorgeous with every amenity, beautiful grounds and a disco pool, we loved the different colored lights on it. We really enjoyed getting up every morning and having breakfast while taking in the breathtaking views. Even though there were neighbors, the house is very private. The Sea of Abaco is right out front and we loved watching the boats go by. The Elbow Reef light house is a must see, even if you don't have a boat, you can get the free shuttle to Hope Town Marina and get there. Papa Nasty's BBQ is yummy, it's a little food truck but so worth it, in fact all the restaurants are good. Hope Town is very quaint with lots of history and the Wyannie Malone museum is very interesting. There's bingo night and trivia night at Captain Jacks. Music at Harbor's Edge and Captain Jacks. You can snorkel right off the beach in town, the reef was beautiful. You can take the golf cart down to Tahiti Beach with it's breathtaking views. And the stargazing at night is just amazing, with no light pollution you see thousands of stars. So much to do or you can just relax and do nothing. Elbow Cay is a magical place with the friendliest people, we will be back. A big thank you to the management team and our caretaker, Chris, he was very helpful and couldn't have been nicer!!

A Great Stay.

  • 4 of 5

All in, we liked Abaco Blue! The property is quiet and private - neighbors were not too far away, but the setting does allow for privacy. The pool is a really nice reason to included this house on your short list. While it's not big (doesn't need to be) it's very, very relaxing and beautiful. The house floor plan is great for two couples. It's open, private and clean. Also, we felt the kitchen was very well stocked for cooking. As well, the grounds were well taken care of and beautiful.

A few things worth mentioning: first, the house is advertised as having a washer/dryer (which it does), but the separate building that houses them was locked making them unusable for us - a really big deal because we all packed with the expectation of being able to wash our clothes one time. Secondly, the microwave did not work - we suspect it's on the same line as a bad GFI. Lastly (and this is picky) we did not find the beds comfortable, at all.

In conclusion, this property is one of the coolest places we've stayed on Elbow. Lucayos neighborhood is a very quiet, wooded area of the island and we highly recommend Abaco Blue be included in your search.

JUST BRILLIANT

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay at Abaco Blue and Elbow Cay. Everything about this property is top class and beautifully presented. The garden is a tropical paradise and the pool is stunning the way it visually connects to the sea. For people like us who love living and entertaining outdoors the huge decks were perfect. From this central location we explored the cay from north to south and every restaurant in between. Firefly is close by and recommended. The dock out the front made Abaco Blue an ideal location when we hired a boat to explore places like Lubbers Landing and the other cays.

Highly recommended, this property has it all.
