This is a nice property in a great location. BUT....one of the best features of the place, a sliding glass door going out to to the ocean view side, is broken and will not open. The glass is etched by sea salt spray and the view is not clear. Because the door will not open the wonderful breeze is limited and view obscured. The place is clean and well equipped but could be perked up quite a bit with just some beach themed bedding instead of brown and black! Lastly, beach access is over the dunes and directly off the deck of an adjacent cottage on the same property; all connected by a large, well designed deck. There are boards laid loosely from the deck leading to the dune. The boards that are laid on the dune are not only treacherous but wrong. The dunes should crossed on board walks to preserve them.
Thank you for your comments, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the cottage and location. Sorry one of the sliding doors was not operable during your stay. My caretaker did let me know that it developed an issue and he was not able to repair it yet, it should soon be operable. We do have air conditioning and prefer that that door not be left open for long periods of time due to the direct beachfront location. The corrosive salt spray quickly contributes to issues and can lead to degradation (like the stuck door). I also appreciate your concern for the dune as we have been involved in rebuild efforts after a number of weather events. However, no building approval is available for "board walks" that you may be familiar with in other areas. I hope you return to enjoy the property, location, deck and of course all the surrounding area in Abaco has to offer.
The studio cottage is in the perfct location nestled between the Abaco and Seaspray inn, both just a short walk away. The cottage is simply decorated but cozy and comfortable with awsome views of the ocean and bay from the wrap around porch, the perfect place to have coffee in the morning and watch the stunning sunrise or a cocktail in the evening as the sun sets over the bay. It is also the perfect place to gaze at the moon and stars which can be clearly seen, almost as if you could reach out and touch them as there is no light pollution due to the location of the cottage. Magical!
Both Jon the owner and Jean the housekeeper were great and assisted us in a timely manner when needed. We had quite a few power outages during our visit but they didn't last too long, the Island is known for them and it didn't take away from our enjoyment. Internet was not an issue for us, we logged onto the Abaco Inn site as a guest and were able to get good service not only at the Inn but at the cottage too! The only improvement I would recommend is the beach access, the two boards are very wobbly and make it hard to walk across, good balance is definitely needed so maybe something more secure.
Thanks again Jon and Jean too for a great trip! Highly recommend 👍�👍�
Great studio with dock
This was a first trip for the wife and I on our boat, a 27' Southport. The house was all 2 people need. Jon was very helpful and our caretaker Jean helped us get s
Great location; very comfortable king bed; wrap-around deck is a plus, as well as a full-size fridge
We found the cottage to be very comfortable, quiet, and quite adequate for our long stay. The only things that could have made it more perfect would have been an oven and a less intermittent water heater. Jean, the caretaker, was quite helpful and very personable.
Proximity to the Abaco Inn and Seaspray helped make our 5-week stay even more enjoyable. The Abaco staff was superb and did everything with a smile. Manager Tom was always looking for ways to help. Did I mention that the food was excellent? We spent many evenings enjoying the friendly group at the Abaco bar, which was an interesting mix of locals and visitors.
Location, people, location, people, location!
Jon Dodge's Upper Deck Cottage was the perfect stay for my family of three. The location couldn't be any better on Elbow Cay nestled sweetly between the Abaco Inn and the Sea Spray Marina, both of which offered complimentary shuttle services to town as well as beautiful pools each, fantastic restaurants and amazing service in all ways. The Upper Deck Cottage is right on the beach with miles of amazing walking distance in each direction with beautiful ocean breezes offering gorgeous East and West Views on the expansive wrap-around porch. The cottage has everything one would need for an extended stay on Elbow Cay including a lovely dock for a rented boat. If one find's oneself absent of a golf cart for their stay there is no need to worry as both the Sea Spray Inn and Abaco Inn offer free shuttle service to and from town, Tahiti Beach and anywhere else a guest would like to visit on the island. We loved our stay at Jon Dodge's Upper Deck Cottage and will return again and again.
The Perfect Location
Ocean in your front yard and a pier for your boat in the back yard, directly between two nice resorts and on the best island in the Abacos. Can't beat that! Will be back soon!
Located in the hub of one of one of the best boating areas in the world. Enjoy beaches, reefs, fishing, island hopping and exploring.
