Elbow Cay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a family-owned property, on the secluded Eastern Harbour of quiet, Man-O-War Cay, Abaco. This small island is on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, with incredible views, easy access to the beach and reefs. It must be seen to be believed.

Keywords: On the Water! - a very special vacation home, an idyllic setting, a unique environment. On the quiet Eastern Harbour at Man-O-War Cay - Sailing vessels at anchor, the sounds of the sea, herons nesting in the mangroves, grey snappers under the porch, dolphins playing in the front yard. All the joys and wonders of living on a boat without the worry of checking anchor bearings.

What makes this cottage unique

The quiet and removal from the fast paced world is unparalleled. When you look at the night sky and see the Milky Way across the sky, you'll know you're away from the 'real' world in the best possible way.

This was the BEST place we visited in the Bahamas. It was more than perfect for my family of 7, so much so it was hard to leave. The care takers and the residents of Man of War Key were most helpful and the friendliest around. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone and everyone. Its a Must See! Can't wait until next year I will be back.

Finally a place truly off the beaten path.

Stayed for a week this June. Fantastic location in the out islands of the Bahamas. The place is so well kept and quiet, it is the perfect getaway for anyone who requires peace and quiet, as well as those who want to explore. Lots to do in and on the water, which is right out your door! We rented a 18.5' open boat from Waterways Boat rentals on MOW and they were the best. So kind, picked us up in Marsh Harbor and started our rental immediately. I can't say enough about this beautiful place. The house, the island and the people. Be sure to get to Tilloo Bank for Shelling and Tahiti Beach for a nice stroll. WOW. Harbors Edge in Hopetown has REAL key lime pie, the best.

A perfect relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this cottage two years ago and it was the perfect relaxing quiet vacation. If you aren't a boater you can walk down to the settlement to pick up some groceries or get a bite to eat, go to a gorgeous white sand beach and you can hop on the ferry and go to one of the other islands. If you're a boater then it's absolutely magnificent! The house was adorable and the deck over the water is the perfect place to just sit and read or watch the water and the boats in the harbor. A perfect vacation! Thank you for sharing this beautiful and unique place!

10 years later, I still feel like it was a great decision.

  • 5 of 5

We honeymooned in this house 10 years ago this year. The house, the dock, the island, were spectacular. The hose is on the beach literally with the porch on stilts over the water. Your view from the bedroom is the boats on moorings right out front. The owner's helped us rent a boat to get around, a man o war skiff, which to date was one of my best boating experiences of my life. My wife and I had a great time. Quiet and peaceful. Warm days, and warm water. Everything you think of when you think of a vacation. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away to a slower pace and unwind.

We plan to return, and for sure will go back to Arawak Cottage.
