About JL Danis
I am from Belgium. My American kids never came to visit me there, so I looked for an attractive place closer to them - a place where we could be together more often. I found the Far Side on Tilloo Cay, a paradise of sorts called the "Castle" by the locals for the tower guarding it to the West. And now, my kids come and visit. My daughter lounges on the porch to read and talk; she swims from our beach, walks to the Ocean, sunbathes by the pool, and loves the local restaurants. My son, an enthusiastic diver, snorkeler and fisherman, loves to spear lobsters in season. He took that picture of me on a deep sea fishing expedition; that day, we caught 5 black tunas, 3 wahoos and a grouper in just over 3 hours.
JL Danis purchased this House in 2013
Why JL Danis chose Hope Town
The High House next to me became available. I made it look like the Far Side, and now that I have finished renovating it, I am happy to share with you the calm beauty, the beautiful sunsets, and the privacy of Tilloo Cay.
What makes this House unique
There are many things to enjoy for the discoverers and activities for the energetic ones. For others, the best part is enjoying the calm and the views, swinging on the back porch, soaking the sun by the pool, or watching the sun set with cocktails in hand.

Best Place to Stay Around Elbow Cay
Amazing place to stay. I will be renting this house many more times in the future. Best place I've stayed in the Abacos (have been coming here for 30+ years)!
Thank you Paul for your review !

The property is amazing
Thanks Dean !
I hope to meet you next time...
And thanks for all your good advice !
Had a great stay
We really had a great time. The house was clean and big, the grounds are awesome to explore. If you go to the back docks we seen a bunch of turtles. The only complaint I really have is the grill is way to small, they need to get a bigger grill that way when families or like us , couples will have enough room to grill food.
Debbie the manager was super cool came over and talked to us about some cool places to check out. This house is a great one to stay at for sure
Thanks, Crystal, for your comments and suggestions.
Debbie will be happy to hear!
I'll consider replacing the grill by a larger one, but our problem has been the gas tank supply.
All the best,
Great house! Great location!
Second time we’ve rented this property. The views can’t be beat. A beautiful house with everything you need including a pool! The property manager is on site and available for anything that is needed. Great property!
Hi Sean and Tiffany !

We loved having you and your friends.

All the best,
To see our location from above, cut and paste this link:
There are many pristine beaches on the Tilloo Cay string of islets and numerous natural attractions including several marine national parks and bird preserves as well as Abaco Blue Holes for specialized diving. Within a 15 minute boat ride, the historic Loyalist Settlement of Hopetown Harbour and its light house - the only gas-operated light house left in the world, and many bars and restaurants featuring international and Bahamian foods.
From the High House, you may stroll through the beautifully maintained grounds of the estate, enjoy the half-moon beach nearby, take a short walk to the Ocean beaches of sand and moonrock and collect sea glass, or go snorkeling and fishing right off the dock, from which you will go and explore the nearby cays with your rented boat (highly recommended).
Not far away, golfing, world-famous bonefish casting, ocean fishing, diving in old wrecks, bars and restaurants await on Great Abaco, Hopetown on Elbow Cay, Lubbers Quarter, Man-O-War, Treasure Cay, Guana Cay - and Little Harbour to the South. All these excursions are within an hour boat ride from Tilloo Castle. Our Host will be happy to arrange activities for you, including chartering your own sailboat and captain for a day!
The High House is about at a 20-minute boat ride from Great Abaco, where Marsh Harbour International Airport (MHH) is located. MHH is easily accessible by direct daily flights from Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Nassau, among others.
Transportation to and from Tilloo can be arranged at time of booking. Please contact the Host for assistance.
