Hopetown villa description

Mermaids Ridge is a large, well apportioned, light and airy villa, ideally located on the exclusive North End of Elbow Cay. The villa's elevated location affords ever changing panoramic 360 degree views of Elbow Cay from the beautiful turquoise Sea of Abaco, sweeping across Man of War Cay to the grandiour of the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated in its own tropical garden on a quiet sandy lane, the only worry you will have is which beach to choose for that early morning dip. The beach on the Abaco Sea is ideally suited for children with its gently sloping icing sugar sands leading into the protected turquoise waters of the Abaco Sea. At night you can gaze up at the spectacular stars.

There is a public dock on the North End for you to moor a boat, local boat hire is available with pick-ups at the North End dock and Golf cart rental is also available. You are within easy access to the 100 mile coral reef with really excellent snorkeling in shallow water. Diving trips and kit hire are available in Hope Town.

For complete relaxation with the option to be active when the mood takes you.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: Howard and Lindy Parkinson, we are outgoing and adventurous. Having spent a year sailing down the Caribbean islands we did not find a better place to to be.

                      Why Hopetown:
                      Having looked for holiday property in France, Spain and Majorca we could not find anything that was just right. We knew after the first 10 minutes in Mermaids ridge that the house was exactly right, we love the island two. Having sailed the Caribbean for a year there was nothing to better Hope Town or Mermaids Ridge.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Peace and tranquility of island living while near the quaint Hopetown which provides restaurants, shopping facilities and more.
