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!

Beautiful Views and Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here - beautiful ocean view, great house for our group. Glen and his property manager Wanda were very acommodating and responsive. Easy cart ride to sea spray, Tahiti beach, Abaco inn, and north into town. We loved the use of the dock on the sea side and utilized that with the boat we rented. It's an easy boat ride across the sea/bay to Cracker Ps on Lubbers Landing and down to the sandbar at the south end of the island.

What a great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the house. The owner, Glen, was super helpful and answered emails quickly. Wanda, who takes care of the house, made sure we had everything we needed. We had plenty of room for our family of 7 and the beach was great! We loved looking for shells, building sand castles and gazing up at the stars at night.

Tahiti beach is close and was fun to visit. It was a great, relaxing vacation. I would recommend this house to friends.

Paradise Point Bahamian Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We were at Paradise Point for 12 days. It was a great location. The cottage is very spacious and the view of the ocean can't be beat. The dock was a great bonus for us,

as we arrived by boat.

Glen, the owner, was very pleasant and quick to respond to emails. Wanda , property manager extroidinare , was a gracious host. She met us at the dock loaded our bags onto her golf cart and had a golf cart for us as well. She is knowledgeable local and was quick to respond to all questions or concerns. We were in good hands.

Glen has a website with lots of local information and FAQ which is very helpful as well. We were entertained every minute of our 12 days on Elbow Cay and sorry to leave. We will be back!

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visit the Abacos about once a year. We normally stay a little further north on Green Turtle Cay but decided to try Elbow Cay this year. We were very happy we did. Sunset Point is exactly what we were looking for. The house was beautiful. The deck wraps all around so you can find the perfect spot in the breeze. The dock is a short (3min) golf cart ride away and was perfect for our 28' boat which we used to travel here from Florida. The property manager met us at the dock with our rental golf cart and to help us get our luggage to the house. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this house!

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
