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!

Spotlessly clean Hibiscus House

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 days with all three sons and families in Hibiscus House for Christmas 2015. Very clean and well appointed and convenient to all the facilities in Marsh Harbor. Nice swimming pool and gorgeous vistas with a wonderful through breeze. I miss it all ready,

Beautiful House in Marsh Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful home located on the Sea of Abaco, facing north and south, with waterfrontage on the front and back of the house. It is in an excellent location in the Bahamas. The house is decorated beautifully in Bahamian colors, with the top floor being a large, open living room, dining room and kitchen. The bottom floor is three bedrooms, each with their own private baths (very good) and a small laundry area. The bedrooms all have spacious closets, but there were NO clothes hangars. The interior staircase is non standard with a unmarked drop off on the first step going down from the second floor. Colorful strips of tape or paint would help individuals see the large difference in this step. The house has lots of ceiling fans and a terrific airconditioner! The ceilings are all wood, top and bottom floors and the flooring is all tile. The dining table will accomodate 8 people to sit for dining. There are large decks on the South side of the house, top and bottom floors. The bottom deck has an extremely nice, fresh water pool. When we arrived, there were not enough chairs for our party of 6 to sit on both decks. We alerted the caretaker, Ray, who responded immediately bringing more chairs. Having Ray close by was a tremendous advantage to this house. He was always available and willing to accommodate our every need. The house does have exceptional internet coverage which was a big plus to our group. Dockage for your boat and other water toys is located just a short stroll from the home, very convenient. You do NOT have to walk down stairs to the water as so many of the homes in this area and the docks are every large accomodating larger boats.

Also, when we arrived at the house, our party of 6 adults, we found only 1 towel per person in the baths, one beach towel per person and two kitchen towels. We appreciated the beach towels, but also would have appreciated more towels for the baths and kitchen. We managed. We enjoy going out on the water each day to catch our fish and lobster for supper, thus cooking our own meals. The kitchen was totally inadequte for us to prepare large meals. Items needed in the Kitchen include, a 1 cup measuring cup, measuring spoons, Rubber spatula, turning fork, plastic storage containers, mixing and serving bowls (maybe corning ware bowls), more plates (only 7 plates in house), baking pans and cookie sheets (Ray did bring us 2 baking pans), Kitchen knives (the ones at the house are well past thei

Owner's Response: Good morning Jane Thank you for taking time to write a review for HIBISCUS. I must apologise for the lack of utensils and bath towels etc this will be rectified immediately. We had the house and contents painted and cleaned during the slow months and obvioisly the usual way that it is prepared for rentals was not done. I have been away in London and have not overseen rentals, this of course should not be the reason for the lacking items. I appreciate you informing me of the problem and also for saying wonderful comments about the house. I hope that this does not mean that you not return. All the best Penny

Best Vacation Spot in Abacos!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this property. We have stayed many times in Marsh Harbor but this location had the best views and all the perks to make it a great vacation spot. After boating all day your able to come back to the house for a relaxing swim in your own pool. Everything that you need to make this home feel like your at home is there. We even lost power for about an hour and the home has a back up generator so you never even noticed it. We look forward to many more stays here in the future.

Unbelievable location and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

When I rent via pictures on a website, I mental set my expectations accordingly; i.e. expecting less that what my mind's eye wants to believe. This was not necessary with the Hibiscus House. The house, location, and views were outstanding (see comments on other reviews too). Those things alone would warrant a 10 star rating. However, the owners (Jimmy and Penny) that live next door were over the top. They were always happy to help with whatever we needed. We brought a sailboat with us, and like with all boats we had some issues that needed tending to in port. Jimmy offered his car and his staff to assist on multiple occasions. Jimmy personally talked to local vendors on our behalf to ensure prompt turn around that is atypical of the relaxed lifestyle in the Abacos. If there were an actual contest for the most interesting man in the world, Jimmy would probably get a landslide vote! :-) Needless to say we HIGHLY recommend the Hibiscus house, and we will probably be booking it again ourselves. Thanks Jimmy and Penny for one of the best vacations of our lives!

Beautiful family Easter holiday

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in the house 10 days. Our 3 girls (4, 8 and 10) have very much enjoyed the swimming pool, nice beach as well as the beautiful view from all the terraces. For those who are looking for quiet, peaceful, beautiful, friendly, save, worm, family oriented holiday we definitely recommend the island and Hibiscus House. We have also enjoyed the support we’ve received from the owner before we arrived and during our stay, from all the people around, helping us to spent the very beautiful Easter holidays!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to this property for the last few years and love every minute of our stay there.To be able to have your own private beach surrounded by the most beautiful blue water is Paradise Found. We rented a boat that we moored right by the house and we were able to go off to many of the outer Cays to snorkel and have lunch. The house is bright,clean with fabulous views from all sides. The pictures do not capture the beauty of the area. The owners who live next door were very helpful and accommodating during our stay. I highly recommend this property to families,couples and anyone who would like to get away and enjoy the peaceful, quiet beauty of the Abacos
