Waterfront 2 bedroom/2 bath home within the Hope Town Harbour
About Karen Huff-Lowe
We are a unique couple, my husband, a native Bahamian and I am a SC transplant who visited the islands many years ago and fell in love with them. Eventually I met my soul mate, an islander, who is also known as one of the best fishermen around and I was lucky enough to catch and marry him. Together we've raised 2 fine sons and built our rental homes on a secluded piece of land, close to the Hope Town settlement. This special piece of paradise is a hidden treasure in the beautiful Abaco islands and we are proud to share it with you.
Why Karen Huff-Lowe chose Hope Town
We are close to the Hope Town settlement, so it is convenient to get to any necessities, but yet, we are far enough away for you to feel like you are in your own private sanctuary. Elbow Cay/Hope Town is also centrally located in the middle of the Abaco chain of islands, so you can easily take a day and go north to explore and then head south the following day to see all the beauty these islands have to offer.
What makes this Villa unique
We are in protected waters of the Hope Town harbour, so there is safe dockage for your boat or rental boat. We are unique in that we offer a little more adventure than most of the rental homes on the island. Anyone can rent in the settlement and walk out their door to the store, but why not add a little adventure in your life and a story to tell your friends of how you got into a small boat and went thru the harbour to go shopping. Not only that, but you ate fresh fruit from the gardens of the vacation rental home where you stayed. That's not something everyone can talk about when they return from their vacation so come and enjoy a new adventure of our blended Southern hospitality..... Bahamian style.

This is a beautiful setting
The owners of very nice people that are native Bahamian and hospitality is excellent. Will definitely stay here again
We absolutely loved our stay at this peaceful retreat. The property is exactly as described and had everything we needed. Thanks Karen and Robert for providing us with the perfect getaway spot. We highly recommend this property and hope to be back soon.
Trip of a LIFETIME!!
Property was exactly as advertised with the bonus of having the most experienced, gracious hosts in the world!! Highly recommend this location!!
Absolutely loved the house, the quiet surroundings, and Karen and Robert were extremely helpful. We enjoyed getting a bit more of a sense of a local flavor by getting away from the marina and meeting folks at the dock as they cleaned their fish. The house itself had everything we needed - great place
Best decision to stay here!
You won’t regret taking this stunning location. It’s water access only, but you get a little boat to head into town any time you want (3 minutes by boat may be exaggerating how long it takes!). The pool is awesome as well. Super refreshing. The lot is so private. The birds sound beautiful there and the limes from the key lime tree are delicious!
Do follow Karen’s advice to do the following:
1. Take a cab from airport to marsh harbour
2. If you have time, stop at Maxwells and get your groceries. Get as much as you need and have them put it in boxes. It works!! Stop and get beer or wine as well.
3. When you get to the ferry at marsh harbour, load your stuff in a wagon and bring your stuff to the dock. They will load everything on the boat for you.
4. When you get to the last stop LODGE DOCK, karen or Robert will meet you on their boat. You literally hand your bags and boxes of food over the side into their boat. Once on property, your stuff gets loaded into a golf cart and driven up to your place. That was soooo easy!!!
Charter Robert to take you fishing. He knows these waters and you will have a great time! (This is from someone who is anxious on the water!)
You are in good hands with Robert and Karen.
Enjoy your time there. You won’t regret staying here!!
Perfect location. Best cottage layout we have ever enjoyed.
Hosts Robert and Karen are the best. Friendly, helpful and always on the lookout for ways to make our stay enjoyable. This is our second visit to Seagull Cottages and we will return often
If you love the warm Caribbean climate, turquoise blue water, beautiful beaches, coral reefs and fresh seafood, this is a place like no other. The Abacos are bountiful with all these attributes and more. Come see for yourself why one visit will make you long for many more.
