About Jane and Peter

We are a family of 7, three children OUT OF THE HOUSE, a golden retriever, TAZ, a wonderful daughter-in-law and a grandson born March 2016. After growing up in the suburbs of New York and Boston we met after college in Nantucket, MA where all three of our boys were born. To escape those, long, cold, harsh winters we moved our family to Hilton Head Island, SC in 1992 where we currently live. Our kids have always had a love of the water and 'island living' (although they have chosen the more metropolitan areas of Charleston, SC and Boston to live).

This 'love of the water' (and surfing) have taken us on vacations to Costa Rica, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Barbados, Mexico and now Elbow Cay.

Jane and Peter purchased this house in 2008

Why Jane and Peter chose Bahamas

We decided to build our DREAM vacation home after our first visit to Elbow Cay. We stayed with friends in White Sound and from the minute we got off the ferry we absolutely fell in love. It reminded us so much of our days on Nantucket and how it used to be 30+ years ago. The beaches with their beautiful coral shaded sand and crystal clear turquoise water are second to none. Not to mention how hospitable and friendly EVERYONE is. It is the perfect place to escape, unwind, relax and create many memories!!!!

What makes this house unique

Our goal was to build a vacation home in keeping with the 'Bahamas' theme of bright colors and coastal decorations, along with all the modern amenities one would want to make for a perfect stay.

Catch A Wave's location in the White Sound area has some definite advantages. First of all, being on the South side facing the ocean there is always a breeze, unlike in town or facing the Sea of Abaco. This especially makes a huge difference in the summer months. We are right up the street from the Sea Spray and a short walk to Tahiti Beach and only minutes by golf cart to other beaches and town. And.. in the summer, when power outages are a common occurrence, we have an automatic full house generator.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is beautiful. The colors & decorations are fun & vibrant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The food on this island is some of the best we’ve had in the Bahamas. Thanks so much.

60th family birthday

  • 5 of 5

We loved CatchAWave!! From getting flights to golf cart and settled in the house was a breeze!! Our favorite part about this Bahama house is the back deck from coffee in the morning to having dinner outside on the deck!! We had 5 adults in the house and it was very comfortable. It was the perfect place to celebrate a big birthday with the family. Will be back soon!!!

Catch A Wave is phenomenal!

3 couples shared this outstanding property for a week and were 100% delighted! Great location, excellent décor, useful generator, plentiful space, and a nice breeze to keep us comfortable in the middle of summer. Owner and caretaker both great to work with. We highly recommend Catch a Wave - you will love it!

This was our first visit to Elbow Cay. Our group of 5 came for a close friend's wedding and decided to make it a week long vacation. Catch-a-Wave far exceeded our expectations. This is a terrific house. It could not be decorated any better. The upstairs masters suite is superb with the outside deck overlooking the ocean. Both downstairs bedrooms were comfy and well decorated. The small sunroom was perfect for our daughter since it gave her a bit of privacy to do some work she needed to get done. My favorite spot was under the outside gazebo where we sipped our morning coffee and enjoyed the ocean view and breeze. My wife enjoyed floating on a raft in the pool. Don't worry about everyday items when you show up, the house is well stocked with pretty much anything you need and the caretaker - Steve - is the best. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Catch-a-Wave. The layout of the house worked well for 2 families. The small sunroom was a lovely hideaway for anyone wanting privacy or for the children to watch TV. And the attention to detail was superb: a beach umbrella, plenty of towels, an infant "floatie" for the pool, an outdoor shower to get the salt and sand off. We would highly recommend this property!

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean and comfortable home 10 minutes from friendly Hope Town. Our group of 6 enjoyed plenty of room inside and out as well as the pool, outside shower, stargazing and a peaceful atmosphere. The owners provided detailed information for arrival, activities and "must see" places on the island. A convenient, private location. Looking forward to staying at Catch A Wave again!

Really enjoyed the Island and found it to be very clean and safe.

  • 5 of 5

Catch-A-Wave was very clean and offers everything you need from kitchen equipment, beach chairs, beach towels, pool, very large porch, internet and much more. We only used the king sized bed and found it to be comfortable. The owner was very helpful in arranging the rental for the golf cart as well as answering any other questions we had. The house is close to Tahiti Beach which we highly recommend. The deck offers plenty of seating for shade or sun. The views are wonderful although there is a house that is fairly close to the back of Catch-A-Wave when you are sitting on the deck. We did not find it a problem for us as no one was ever there. The grocery store that is close to the house seemed to offer as much as any other store on the island. We agree with what others said that the house is decorated very nice and is very comfortable. We found the owner and caretaker very helpful and easy to deal with and had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. The nice thing about the house that is behind us is that it helps to block the wind and salt spray just enough when they are coming off the ocean making it enjoyable to sit out on the deck year round. Even when the house is occupied (occasional second home owners, not a rental home) you wouldn't even know as they never use the back entrance.
