Property description

A vacation spot like this comes along once in a BLUE MOON! Accessed by water taxi from Marsh Harbour, Blue Moon Cottage was the first school house built in White Sound on Elbow Cay. It has been renovated into a bright Two Bedroom, Bahamian beach cottage. Decorated in bright island fashion Blue Moon is sure to please!

The Master bedroom has a king-size bed with a private extra sink and vanity, connecting to a large bathroom with a newly tiled shower. It has a private door leading to an east facing deck and an upper flying deck with Atlantic ocean sunrise views.
The guest room has a queen bed with bathroom access and it's own private door to the upper and lower East deck.
Across the golf cart road is our own private beach access to the Atlantic Ocean.. Surf, swim, collect shells and walk on a virtually deserted beach with beautiful blue water and great surf waves.

You will find the kitchen well equipped along with a gas grill outside overlooking the Abaco sea.. and an outside dining area in the breezeway has a fun mural painted on the wall.

We also have a wonderful outside shower with hot and cold water with a view of the abaco sea. Why shower inside when you can get 'native' with hot and cold water shower outside..with a view

Watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Abaco Sea from the Flying Deck. Enjoy 360 views and wonderful breeze. The best place around for a morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail!

A shallow water boat dock is availble a few yards away with reservation.

There are lots of games, books and music to keep yourself busy if you find yourself indoors as well as Satellite TV and internet.

When you visit Hopetown and Blue Moon Cottage, you will immediately relax. From the oversized sliding glass doors in the living area you can view the beautiful Abaco Sea and feel the fresh breeze from the Atlantic ocean.. (both just feet away) from our large decks.

Relax in hammocks and comfortable deck furniture. There is no hustle and bustle. No crazy schedules. Rent a golf cart or boat to explore the island and waters or just hang out at your home away from home!

Blue Moon is across a small golf cart size road from the newly renovated Abaco Inn where you will find a first class restaurant/pool and the locals favorite bar. Down the tiny golf cart road south, is Sea Spray Marina, with docks and outside restaurant/ bar. It is open for for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is a nice place to just hang out after a big day at the beach or boating.
The new Firefly resort is just a short golf cart ride away.. A great place to hang out and enjoy the pool and bar and watch a sunset or two.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: after sailing thru the Bahamian Islands for many years I finally decide to throw out the anchor and put down roots with a cottage. Hope Town has all the amenities one could desire while still retaining is small ( only 6 miles long) feel

Why the Owner Chose Hope Town:
With views of the Abaco Sea and The Atlantic ocean only a few fee away we are on on the narrowest part o the island.. sea breeze all the time and views that are amazing. Walk to the Abaco Inn or Sea Spray for a drink, snack or dinner makes it easy if you do not want to cook. Across the small golf cart road is a small path to our private Atlantic ocean front property complete with a sunrise bench just waiting for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
views views views and location location location Blue Moon Cottage has it all while retaining a laid back Bahamian Funk and fun feel! All the comforts of home in your third world paradise
