Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a family of 5, three children OUT OF THE HOUSE and a golden retriever, TAZ. 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.

Why the Owner Chose Hope Town:
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!!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
