GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION....

  • 5 of 5

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.

BROUGHT IN 2014 WITH A BANG AT CLIFFHOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful house and location.

  • 5 of 5

We had five adults and one child at the house, and had a fantastic time. The caretaker (Donnie) met us at the dock on our arrival, and checked in on us regularly.

We ended up using the included marina slip the whole week for two reasons. First, the golf cart made running down there with our people and gear a snap, and secondly it's considerably deeper than the dock at the house. We did use the end of the house dock one day and it had plenty of water for our 27' Grady White, but it was nice to be in the marina slip and not worry about low tide and such.

The view from the living room and two bedrooms was excellent, and we never tired of it. You can see the Sea of Abaco, Elbow Cay, Tilloo Cay, Tilloo Cut and the Atlantic; we decided this was nicer than even a purely ocean-front view. The pool was a great retreat from the heat when we'd return from the day's adventures.

Part of our group stayed back at the house for one full day and loved it, including a great lunch down at Cracker P's.

The only negative we found at all was the mosquitoes at this time of year. It was fine when the wind was blowing, but terrible when it was still; bring insect spray! Most of our stay the wind was blowing strong enough off the water that it was great out on the deck, but otherwise you needed to protect yourself.

We couldn't find a fish-cleaning station at the marina or on the property, so we used our bait-cutting station on the boat (no big deal, just be prepared if you fish).

We've been going to Abaco for many years. This was our first time bringing our own boat instead of flying and renting, and found this to be a great, central location to all the places we love. Our favorite snorkelling is Sandy Cay Reef to the south and Fowl Cay Reef to the north (Guana Cay north end is great, too). The fishing was a bit off during this week (for us and most others we heard on the radio), but we still caught plenty to eat and bring home.

The communication with Olle (and also Donnie) was great throughout. Overall, it was a great vacation!

Perfect location with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six, family and friends, spent a wonderful week in May here at the Cliff House. It was even better than we could have expected. This is a beautiful home and the pictures do not do it justice. Our hosts Olle and Li Xhia were most accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay, while respecting our privacy. By renting a boat, we were able to enjoy the beautiful clear waters, fishing and snorkeling, as well as visiting some of the nearby islands for shopping, sightseeing, and refreshments. If you are snorkelers, we would highly recommend Sandy Cay as one of the most spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. And at the end of the day, it was great to come home to Cliff House for a dip in the pool and to lounge on the deck, enjoying the cool breeze and incredible view, before preparing dinner in the gourmet kitchen.

This was one of our most memorable vacations, and we are most grateful to our hosts for sharing their little piece of paradise with us.
