Great location; very comfortable king bed; wrap-around deck is a plus, as well as a full-size fridge

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

top deck cottage is tip top

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay for a couple. Beautiful ocean front views, and star filled sky at night. The property was clean and well maintained. We met the owner who is an interesting and kind person who has a great knowledge of the islands. the cottage care taker is attentive, nice and helpful. It is within walking distance to the Sea Spray marina and restaurant as well as the Abaco Inn and restaurant. Tahiti beach is a short ride by golf cart as well as the grocery store.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Top Deck for 4 nights recently and enjoyed it. It's walkable to two bars/restaurants, but you'd need a cart or boat to get into Hope Town. We had a boat for our stay, and it was really nice to be able to use the dock behind the cottage. The air conditioner worked well and kept up with the summer heat. The caretaker Jean and the owner were quite friendly and helpful. The only issue was WiFi access, which we needed to stay in touch with family and for travel planning. There was no wifi at the the cottage, and the wifi at the Abaco Inn nearby was usually usable only while standing near the front desk - it often wasn't usable in the bar. But in general a great stay, and we'd come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for review, glad to hear that you enjoyed staying at the cottage. A couple tips for internet usage: For those that would like internet right at the cottage there are two providers from which service can be purchased fairly reasonably. I believe the rate is about $40 for a week right now. If the free service that the Abaco Inn provides is acceptable the strongest signal is near their antenna, which is toward the north end of the covered bar area (near the TV away from the bar) Also, some data plans are becoming competitive through an international plan or through BTC with their sim card and an unlocked phone. Many more options are available than just a couple years ago. Sorry if we missed providing this info to you during your stay but glad that all else worked well for you and look forward to having you back for another visit.
