About Glen

We live in Northern VA and fell in love with Elbow Cay Bahamas in an area they call Hope Town Bahamas. The picture is from one of our many wonderful vacations taken on the front steps of Sunrise Point.

Glen purchased this house in 2004

Why Glen chose Bahamas

We purchased Sunrise Point in 2003 because our then young children love the beach, surfing, snorkeling, fishing and the Bahama Island Life. The weather in the Bahamas is great year round and Sunrise Point became our winter escape. We vacationed in several homes in the Abacos prior to deciding to purchase on Elbow Cay / Hope Town as the best place to make an investment. Elbow Cay was our choice because it is very safe area where kids can be on their own and the doors open. We love the easy access to fantastic beaches and the amenities available on Elbow Cay.

What makes this house unique

We've done an extensive remodeling of our 'round house' to bring it up to modern standards but have not destroyed the original charm of this home.

The home has full house air conditioning, modern appliances, automatic whole house power generator and room for 8 to 10 people. In 2012 we put a new deck surface downstairs, we bought new furniture for the upper deck and living room and we installed new BBQ and Gas Grills and new air conditioning units for both the upper and lower units. The home has great bones and we've done continuous improvements.

One of the great things about our home is that each bedroom on the lower levels has a door that exits to the lower deck. This allows our guests to come and go without disturbing others.

The hurricane shutter are hinged on our home and stay attached so that they can be closed at anytime. Sunrise Point has extensive windows letting in lots of light but if you close the shutters to a room you can make this room completely dark.

Sunrise Point has a completely open floor plan upstairs. When the doors are open on a nice day the gentle breeze is wonderful and the sound of the Ocean peaceful.

Sunrise Points maintains a laid back attitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a casual setting with the most spectacular views and great weather. Don't worry about a little sand on the floor and leave the door open to let the breeze come in so you and your guests can enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean!

Can't wait to go back to Sunrise Point!!!

  • 5 of 5

> We are now back to reality and really missing Sunrise Point.

>

> Wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our ten days there. Ten days wasn't enough. Everything was perfect. The outages on the island seemed to be happening more frequently but the generator did it's job. It never missed a beat. It was great knowing that we didn't have to do anything when the power went out knowing that she would kick on immediately.

>

> As we remembered from before, the kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoy cooking and it was fully equipped.

>

> Our mornings started early so we would have time to make coffee and take our seats on the deck to watch the beautiful sunrises. It was wonderful. Then a long walk along the beach just steps from your home.

>

> Also, when we were then in 2012 we would buy jugs of water for drinking. This time we forgot to buy water at the store so we drank from the tap. It was delicious. I wish our tap water in Ft. Lauderdale tasted so good!

> We are already planning our next visit. Hope it is sooner than later!!

>

> Thanks,

> Dana and Sharon

Great Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Elbow Cay. Sunset Point is at a great location on the island...loved having a convenient dock to use as well. Wanda, the caretaker, was very helpful. The upstairs is very nice with beautiful views from every window. While the downstairs is decorated nicely, the ventilation

is not good....the odor of mildew/mold is almost unbearable....had it not been for that condition downstairs....I would say Sunset Point is perfect. My children suffer from allergies so I don't think we could stay in the house again unless the problem is fixed. Also, it would also have been nice to use the washer/dryer that was locked up. Thank you for a memorable week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback and Thanks for 5 Stars!! The only room for W/D is our equipment room. It has our tools, owner's property and HVAC. It is not designed for guest access. On Elbow many homeowners don’t provide access to W/D. Guests use laundry facilities. This being less expensive. Sure, we would like to be able to provide access to W/D but don't have a guest accessible area. This amenity is not included, it is not in our VRBO listing, and our rates are lower as a result. You note the following: "The upstairs is very nice with beautiful views from every window. While the downstairs is decorated nicely, the ventilation is not good…” The AC ventilation is equally good for both the downstairs and upstairs. But the upstairs is raised above the sand dune and at higher elevation, perfect for opening doors and windows to catch the breezes and enjoy the ocean. The design of our home is to use the downstairs as a bedroom sleeping area. We deal with humidity as does every homeowner on Elbow. I spoke to Wanda and she said that there was no communications from you while you were staying or she would have taken actions. This review is the first time it has been brought to our attention. We feel badly that we did not have a chance to address things while you were there. The humidity issues you describe are normal. If alerted to the issue Wanda will clean and treat the AC vents and install DampRid Hanging Bag Moisture Absorber- with Fresh Scent 14 de-humiding product. This immediately takes away odor and immediately reduces humidity. If renters consult us they can improve their stay by keeping the downstairs AC on and using the upstairs if they want to open windows or doors to get the ocean breezes. The thermostat downstairs should be set at no higher than 73 degrees (preferably set at 70 degrees) and make sure kids do not have windows or doors open. Having a window or door open for a short time or turning off the AC on a humid day can overwhelm the lower level with tropical humidity. It then requires 24 hours for AC to take moisture back out of the air and may require other treatment, which we will do. This is not unique to our home but something you deal with in the subtropics. Upstairs you are more likely to have a breeze and there is less moisture. These things would have solved your problem. We have done a full treatment and have renters there with no problem. Thanks. We will communicate in more detail with future guests.

Pretty piece of paradise and private

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time at Glen's piece of paradise. The location was beautiful and private. The house is spacious and allows two or three couples to vacation together without being on top of each other. The island is one of our favorites in all of the Bahamas The boat slip was an added bonus-we rented a boat and went island hopping. Great stay. Thanks again!

All the comforts of home and more!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect vacation rental for our family of eight. There are 4 separate entrances for 4 different bedrooms that makes for great privacy. This home has an amazing view of the Atlantic ocean with its own private beach access. The home has its own private dock on the sea of Abaco. We cooked all of our meals at the house and the gas and charcoal grills were perfect for every meal. The owner Glen was friendly and extremely helpful. The houses care taker Wanda was amazing and took care of our every need. This is the 6th time I have visited this island and we always choose to stay in White Sound. By far this was my favorite trip to this remote island in the Bahamas. Sunrise Point was the perfect setting for our amazing family vacation. We couldn't have been more pleased with the house. We are starting to plan our next visit to Hope Town now. Thank you Glen for sharing your amazing home in paradise. We look forward to our next stay at Sunrise Point!

Summer Getaway at Sunrise Point

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time on the island and in your home. We loved the dock in the back-kids had a blast jumping off it and exploring the area. We got to see sharks and the most amazing sting rays, starfish and lobsters! The trip far exceeded our expectations. Thank you and by the way we also ran into the family who rented the house at the same time last year and had a great time with them at Seaspray!

OMG...

  • 5 of 5

This is our last day at this wonderful house. We are so sad!! We have had the best time ever and do not want to leave. We are a family of four and have explored the Island and loved every moment. The house is such a wonderful location and has all the amenities needed. We spent 11 days and leaving for Boston ( record snow levels ugh.... Wanda the care taker has been the best and any questions she she can answer. We rented a boat for the day and had a great experience exploring and snorkeling. The house is situated right next to the Sea Spray arena and gave us access to the pool. The kids loved the ring game at the marina which they could easily walk to by themselves ( 9yr and 11yr). We visited Tahiti beach many times just moments away ( breathe taking!). Glen it was an honor for you to share this dream house we hope to be back soon!!
