This house is located on a private peninsula with the beautiful turquoise Sea of Abaco on both sides of the home. The views are breathtaking from every angle. There is a private beach just a few footsteps from the front door, where you can swim or snorkel and the nearby coral reefs. You may even spot a dolphin or two! Or you can lounge or take a dip in your own private pool, the choice is yours.

The Abaco islands have so much to offer. We highly recommend renting a boat so you can island hop and discover all the beautiful surrounding beaches, islands, restaurants, bars and local shops. Alternatively, you can catch a ferry which is conveniently located within a 5 minute walk from Hibiscus House. The ferry's are safe and reliable and run on schedule.

We look forward to welcoming you to this paradise we are lucky enough to call home.

About Penny Vaughan

My husband and I have travelled the world and finally settled in this beautiful paradise, called Abaco.

Penny Vaughan purchased this house in 2000

Why Penny Vaughan chose Abaco

After hurricane Floyd, our house was very badly damaged, so repair was necessary. We had a plot of land next door and decided to build two rental homes...we must have been mad to do all three at the same time! its turned out brilliantly and we love renting Palm and Hibiscus as we meet so many interesting people.

What makes this house unique

Come and see for yourselves!

A few highlights:

360 degree stunning views

Perfect sunset spot from the private beach

Experience paradise

Beautiful property, perfect location, exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as pictured and described. The dock was easy and convenient. Parking spot for the rental car right out front. The kids were thrilled to have wifi and a pool. House was clean and ready for our arrival. Ample beach towels and bath towels. Washer and dryer a huge plus, and dishwasher! Full size fridge fit our food and supplies for the week. Never watched TV, but nice TV's available.

For those that have never been to the Bahamas or similar location, it is a harsh environment to maintain a house. Having been to this area many times, was the nicest house I have stayed in. Would book again!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We were totally impressed with our trip to Abaco! We were a little nervous with the travel and accommodations since we booked everything online but were pleasantly surprised! Hibiscus House was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need on vacation! We rented a boat from Blue Water Rentals for the week and spent each day on our very own little adventure! We snorkeled and fished and checked many things off our bucket lists! We are already planning for our next trip to the Abacos!! Many thanks to the hospitality of the islands, Michelle and family

Great stay

Great location. Plenty of room for three couples. The owners were very friendly and easy to get in contact with. Dock was easy to get to and keep the boat.

Beautiful location and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending 2 wonderful weeks at Hibiscus House! The lovely views of turquoise and green waters are seen from the front and back of the 2 story home. Decking around the house adds to the ambience. The 3 bedrooms with 3 baths were perfect for our family and are located on the first floor. A large open area upstairs allowed us to be together for meals and evening games. The kitchen is part of the open plan and had all items to cook meals. Also, we made use of the BBQ grill.

The central AC worked well and kept us comfortable. The house also has multiple fans throughout.

We spent one week on a rental boat going around to our favorite islands. The house has access to the owners large dock next door. This was great as we ventured out early and returned mid afternoon. Our late day routine was to retreat to the decked pool area overlooking the water. Perfectly perfect!

Would recommend renting a car to get around Marsh Harbour. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Markets and Maxwells, a large grocery store, had all the items we needed.

Our host owner, Penny, is delightful and focused on making our stay comfortable. We had one minor issue with a sink drain holding water. William was there within 15 min to clear it. Awesome guy and friendly!

Cant wait to return! Thank you Penny for providing this beautiful home to travelers!

Enjoyable time in the Abacos

  • 5 of 5

This is a solid choice for a first visit to the Abacos. Being on the "mainland" was a good jumping off point to explore the other Cays. We had a rental boat that we kept all week at the dock, and also had a car which is good because the property is 1.5 miles out the eastern shore.

House was nice and clean. Views out both sides are beautiful. As noted above, we used the dock and the pool most afternoons. Nice little beach area across the road with shallow shoal and crystal clear water out for a 100 yards. Kitchen had everything you would need. Bedrooms were nice with the poolside room being the master. TV and internet worked good the entire time, only one outage (when we were there - because we were on the water most of the time). Plenty of beach towels and a cooler.

No real negatives that impacted our trip, couple of small items need some touch up, but I shared with owner and they were appreciative. Overall great experience and we would stay here again.

Located on exclusive Eastern Shores and convenient to local shops and restaurants, these new properties are built to a very high standard. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, the pool is outdoors on the decking and multi level decks overlook breathtaking views of the sea and cays beyond. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets or just gaze at the stars. A great place for tanning or dining alfresco style. Only a few footsteps will bring you to a private beach. These are great homes for large groups and family reunions, executives, couples travelling together. Suggest car and/or boat rental.
