Elbow Cay House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom/4 bathroom house in perfect location on a white sandy beach

Architecturally designed so that every room has a view of the sea, Ocean View Beach House is a spacious two-story 2800 square-foot property nestled between a pristine white sandy (coral-free) beach and a tropical garden. The house comprises four spacious bedrooms, two each with a king-sized bed, and two each with two queen-sized beds; three of the rooms are en-suite. The house comfortably sleeps eight people. Southern exposure and an abundance of windows creates a bright and airy home; an open floor plan and high vaulted ceilings accentuate the waterfront lifestyle. In addition to the beach, the property has a pool and garden, a private dock slip, WiFi and satellite television - for those who wish to stay in touch - and an automatic back-up generator. The house is beautifully positioned without immediate neighbhours and nestled in a palm grove, but a few steps away from the charming village of Hope Town.

Located just south of the historic village of Hope Town, Ocean View Beach House sits on one of finest white sandy beaches on the island. The house enjoys an ideal position on Elbow Cay, walking distance from the amenities of Hope Town, yet private and surrounded by nature. Enjoy sublime sunrise views from the expansive decks around the house or from the four bedrooms and great room, all of which look out over the sea. With a dipping pool and a private dock for your boat, the house offers comfort and privacy on one of the most picturesque islands in the Bahamas.

Why Caroline Martin/Shamira chose Bahamas

We live and work all around the world and our daily routine is demanding. Hope Town is where we come to relax and wind down. The low-key friendly atmosphere and superb beaches make it the perfect place to get away from it all. The trust and honor-system in the island community combined with the physical beauty of Elbow Cay to make this a type of paradise!

What makes this house unique

The sublime views from every room making living at Ocean View Beach House a special experience. The pristine beach and the garden bring us close to nature and we especially enjoy walking around and sitting on the deck. The great room is flooded with light and is a very happy space. What we especially love is that the house is only a short stroll away from the beautiful village of Hope Town and the charming harbor.

Wonderful beach house on Elbow Cay

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Abacos for almost 30 years. This is our favorite house in which we have stayed thus far. There are many lovely beach houses but this one really fits our bill. It is well located near Hopetown but easily accessible to the south end of Elbow Cay . It has a very nice and protected dock. The house is of very nice design and still retains the "feel" of a beach house rather than A McMansion on the beach. There is a beautiful beach out front for swimming and good snorkeling which is a real bonus. There's a constant breeze from the Atlantic. The kitchen is well-equipped and well-maintained. The custodians, Tommy and Debbie, also take very good care of you. It has a generator which is a must on Elbow Cay. We shall return!

perfect Elbow Cay home rental

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our two families, ten people in total. The house was spacious, well-designed, and clean. Inside, there were plenty beds for the kids to choose from. The breeze flowed very well through the house, or there was the option to use air conditioning throughout. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, dishes, etc. Outside, the smallish pool was great for the kids to play in and there were various areas to sit and lie around in the sun or shade. But, the best part was the beach-- it is miles long, gorgeous, and with perfectly clear water. And, we essentially had it to ourselves. We spent hours playing in the waves (it was so great not having rocks or coral right there). We also rented fat bikes (at the Hope Town Canvas bike shop) and not only biked the dirt and paved roads all over the island, but biked from the northern tip of the island to our house, all on the beach! Amazing. It was great and easy to have a boat for the week so we could explore other islands and go to Tahiti Beach (although you can get there by golf cart easily as well). It was easy to buzz into town on our golf carts to shop or eat out. The town is quaint, safe, had a great coffee shop and there are enough restaurants sprinkled around the island that you can always find somewhere to eat out. We had a perfect week!

Perfect Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family returned to Ocean View Beach House this year because of our visit two years ago. It was perfect the first time and it was perfect again! It's set up so well for the 3 couples and 4 children we had. Every couple had their own private suite, and the children had their own bathroom as well. With the two queens and a bunk bed in one room, there was not only room for the 4 kids, but they each had their own bed! The house is nicely furnished in a casual style that makes it very comfortable. Everything worked. The kitchen is large and well set up. The gas grill worked great. There is plenty of deck space and deck furniture for outdoor living and dining. The ocean beach out front is beautiful and is great for swimming, sitting, and playing. We rented a boat to have for the week and the protected boat slip is really a plus so no one has to worry about the boat during the occasional squall in the middle of the night!

Elbow Cay is the best for a vacation, and this house is well located to take advantage of the island. First of all, the house is right on the beach, and "On Da Beach" is a short beach walk away. They have great drinks and food. There are restaurants in both Hopetown and White Sound and a convenience store nearby for extra supplies. There is incredible snorkeling for all levels of ability from Mermaid Reef to Sandy Cay and beautiful beaches and island communities to visit throughout the Sea of Abaco for day trips using either a rental boat or the ferry system. Rental golf carts (Island Carts)are the perfect mode of transportation. We were sorry to see that the Sugar Shack in Hopetown had had a fire so we could not use them for our daily ice cream run, but found the Sweet Shop on the way to White Sound had ice cream as well so were able to cover those with this daily habit!

Our family had a wonderful time. This house reflects the excellent care it receives from both its owner and caretakers and we highly recommend this house for a perfect vacation.

We had a wonderful week at Ocean View, enjoying the beach and the garden as well as the views from the house. The kitchen is really well stocked so in addition to meals at the Edge and Firefly, we cooked a lot at home. The sandy beach is almost always empty and perfect for morning walks and for swimming of course. The house is large and comfortable and very open - exactly what you imagine of a beach house. We loved our stay and can't wait to return!

The Abaco Islands benefit from beautiful sandy beaches and excellent water-sports. There is no better way than to pass the day exploring the cays by boat with snorkeling, scuba diving or fishing. Elbow Cay is also remarkable for its views and natural beauty, perfect for cycling or walking.
