It is easy to communicate since English is the native language. People are very friendly. People who have experience say that it is like Florida used to be 50 years ago.

The Atlantic Ocean (accessible through Tilloo Cut) for fishing and boating.

Sea of Abaco (surrounding Lubbers Quarters Cay) for beaches, kayaking, boating and fishing. The Sea of Abaco is protected from the Atlantic Ocean by a string of thin islands.

A very nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The abacos was amazing . Cliff house is a great central location to enjoy it, with a sunrise every morning from the Deck ( the best ) or from the gathering area including the spacious kitchen . We ha our 31 cc at the public dock pictured and use of a golf cart to run back & fourth . The house dock is a bit shallow at low tide . No Complaints :)

Highly recommend this house and location. We love the water and rented a boat for the week.

  • 5 of 5

The house and property is bettter than what the pictures showed on the website. There was so much room, the house was clean, the beds are comfortable, the AC worked great. There were so many extras.. laundry soap, dish soap, plenty of towels, paper towels, sugar, spices, condiments, sunscreen.. the little things were great. There is nothing to do on Lubbers Cay but we didn't care. We spent every day on the boat catching fish and cooking it up at night. They have a propane grill as well. The dock is great, they supply a golf cart with a trailer to transport ourselves and gear to and from the house and boat every day. We rarely needed to make the walk up the huge flight of stairs. The view is spectacular every day and the pool was great! The only negative was the Misquitos were terrible! My 2 kids (19 & 22yrs) got munched. We had spray and used it, but they were still bad. We took the kiyacks across one day to the beach and that was fun. There are 3 kiyacks so all 6 of us could go together. We would definitely stay here again!

Been to Lubbers more than 15 times and this was the best house I have stayed in, bar none! Spectacular views, nicely furnished and finished, best amenities....pool, satellite tv, great kitchen, comfortable beds, and very clean. Protected boat slip in marina + golf cart to get around in. Donny, the caretaker, was great....very attentive and helpful, without being intrusive. I would highly recommend this house to anyone going to Abacos!

Great stay - Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Cliff House. The house is very nice and furnished comfortably. The view is unbelievable! This was our 3rd trip to The Abacos and 2nd to Lubbers Quarters. This home was our favorite by far. The owners are very quick to answer your emails (and I sent plenty) and Donny, the caretaker, will take care of any issues you have while there. The only small thing was although the house has satellite TV, the subscription is from the West Coast so everything was 3 hours behind. We didn't go to watch TV anyway so after the first night it was never an issue. We enjoyed several meals with Amy and Austin at Lubbers Landing and also at Cracker P's. Tahiti Beach is just minutes away as is the beautiful settlement of Hope Town. We had world class snorkeling with majestic eagle rays just a few minutes away. We also used the pool almost every day. It was very difficult leaving. Don't let the stairs scare you away - I have old overweight arthritic knees and they were not a problem. We mainly used the golf cart anyway. Don't hesitate to book this lovely home.

We spent Dec 22 through January 1 2014 in the outstanding and beautiful Cliff House, the best Christmas and New Year's ever! We've stayed on Lubbers before and were able to hook up with friends/locals we had previously met. The house is absolutely beautiful very modern and comfortable!! The views and breezes are fabulous and although we used the marina for our boat slip, hanging out on our own private dock especially for John Bull's firework display on New Year's Day was really cool!! We spent several evenings with Austin and Amy at Lubbers Landing what a great place to eat that we could take our golf cart to (love the tuna burgers) they are so much fun and New Years was a blast! Make sure to charter a fishing trip with Michael Schreiner Down Deep Charters, he knows his stuff and is a fascinating character that is a local bahamian with lots of sea stories. As echoed by several of the other guests comments, the Abaco's are a fantastic place to visit if you want to do the non touristy kind of vacation to enjoy the beauty and nature of the islands....and don't forget to go to the west side of the island with a cocktail and a precious dog named Rigatoni who will lead the way for sunset!! The owners were so friendly and easy to communicate with and kudo's to Donny for all his helpful and cheery assistance. Thank you Cliffhouse and Lubbers Quarters Cay! WE SHALL RETURN!!!

Fun in the Sun at Cliff House in the Abacos (Lubbers Quarters)

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Cliff House! The house is clean, comfortable and well-built. As you can see from the web images--the view is truly spectacular!

The owner was a pleasure to deal with – he answered all of our questions quickly and was very accommodating. The house is in immaculate condition and the caretaker, Donny, was extremely helpful—providing everything we needed. The golf cart sure came in handy, as along with the whole house generator

The Abacos is a beautiful and pristine location to visit. On the way in from the airport, we had the taxi stop and Maxwells for groceries and then a liquor store before dropping us off at the marina to pick up our boat from Sea Horse Boat Rentals. The next day, we snorkeled at Sandy Cay and then went down to Pete’s Pub at Little Harbour for a delightful lunch and checked out Jonston's Gallery. We also visited Hopetown to grab a few more groceries and some souveniers. The kids enjoyed a visit to the top of the lighthouse. We also snorkeled Fowl Cays and went up to Great Guana Cay to enjoy the livelier scene at Nippers and Grabbers. Every day there was fantastic! Swimming with the sting rays and sharks across from Cliff House at Tahiti Beach/Tilloo Cut. Our children said it was the best family vacation ever and we can’t wait to go back!

I would recommend this place/location to anyone that likes Fun in the Sun, boating, snorkeling, fishing and is a adventure seeker.
