About Don Harrower

I am retired from the corporate custom furniture business and now am a full time private investor. My wife and daughter are in the wholesale fashion industry representing fashion forward European lines. My wife will completely retire in the near future when our daughter is at the stage to take over that business.

Don Harrower purchased this house in 1991

Why Don Harrower chose Bahamas

We were originally attracted to the out islands as my wife's parents built a retirement home next door to our present location. We both fell in love with the Bahamas and have been coming here for over 40 years. We built next door to my in laws when the property came available and would still build here even if we had to do it all over again. It is well situated - perfect sunsets everyday which is important to us, good shoreline for a dock and boating and most important - great location for protection against hurricanes. To be doubly protective, we built a concrete block home that has stood the test of many a hurricane . We finished our home in 1991 and have been constantly upgrading it ever since.

What makes this house unique

We get up every day and look out over those waters and realize how incredibly lucky we are to be able to spend time is this amazing part of the world.

We find it harder to leave this place every year and all the original things that attracted us to the islands , attract us even more each year - the phenomenal natural beauty of the Abacos, those turquoise waters, boating, snorkeling, fishing,

the beaches and of course the local friends we have made. The island has grown up so much over the last 30 years , we do love our food and wine and we are now getting some great restaurants opening and we look forward to some wonderful meals with friends and family for years to come.

The Place to be On Elbow Cay

  • 5 of 5

This was our families 4th trip to Conched-Out, and it once again our expectations were exceeded! The owners are such great ambassadors to the region, the local community and their home is absolutely gorgeous place to spend your time on Elbow. Wonderful dock, beautiful pool, every amenity you might need (our typical day is a boat ride, a beach, a lunch at on one of the Cay's or in Hopetown and then dinner in - we cooked 5 of the 6 nights this year). We had great fun popping over to Firefly for an afternoon drink and then heading back to our secluded retreat. Conched-Out accommodated our two families (total of 8) beautifully. Plenty of room to roam. The cupola offers some of the best views outside of the lighthouse and each night provided a 'cool place' for the kids to hang away from the adults. Highly recommend this wonderful property.

This is our third time at Conched Out. Has it all. The owners take great pride in their home keeping it up to date and comfortable. The most relaxing spot we have ever come across.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Conched Out, it could not have been better in any way. Everything we needed was to hand and the house is beautiful and thought out - so comfortable and welcoming, we felt very at home. Sherman was very helpful and even loaned us some fishing rods! Perfect in every way!

Words cannot describe how beautiful this house is!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience staying at Conched Out (9 adults) and no one left with a single complaint. Don was great helping setup the reservation and keeping in constant contact before we arrived. Simon and Wilma were outstanding in helping us with golf carts and answering any questions we had about the house. I suggest renting a boat to explore the many destinations around Elbow Cay. This trip also included me proposing to my girlfriend in which Don suggested numerous places for me pop the question. I will be returning in the future to experience Conched Out again.

Second time just as fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for a second time at Conched Out. This house is perfect!! It is spacious, comfortable, has a large deck, pool, dock and an outdoor shower! The added full bathroom on the 2nd floor was a bonus! My husband and I loved being in the hammock to view the evening sunsets. We gathered around the dinner table each night and discussed the best part of our day! You can't beat the location and the grounds are beautiful. It's a photographer's dream to stay on this property! We can't wait to visit again! Many thanks and gratitude to Don and his care takers Sherman and Wilma.

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at Conched Out. Our expectations of the house were far exceeded by the house itself.The house is terrific(with lots of space), the pool was like having another room as we convened there every afternoon and evening, and the dock was great for our boats and for afternoon snorkeling! We enjoyed the evening sunsets from the pool deck. I fell in love with Elbow Cay and Abaco. Don, Wilma and Sherman were all very, very helpful to us before and during the stay! We will be back to Conched Out as soon as possible!!!
