  • Dreamsicle Island Vacation

    "Great location in the white sound area of Elbow Key. Walking distance to Sea Spray Marina, full service marina, restaurants, bar and pool. Your able to use the pool when you spend money at Sea Spray. The Kids loved this!!!! The cottage retreat is colorful, clean, well equipped and accessible to all points of interest on the island. Seat in the hammock and read, scuba dive, and fishing is right around the corner. Exploring the island on your golf cart ( which must people use) is a must. This was truly a exceptional vacation!! I would not hesitate to recommend this property."

    "I have stayed at Crystal Waters many times and consider this my favorite vacation destination. The photos don't even come close to accurately catching the charm and allure of this special piece of paradise. The views are stunning and there are so many attractions they are too numerous to list, including private swimming pool and large decks for sunning, lounging and dining. The house is well stocked and comfortably accommodates large parties. I have brought many friends and family to stay here for weeks at a time. The deep water docks easily accommodate large boats and Tilloo Cut, within minutes to the South, provides easy access to the Atlantic for big-game trolling in minutes. You can be in several thousand feet deep water in less than 10 minutes. Diving is excellent with close-by Sandy Cay and Fowl Cay national preserves that offer stunning snorkeling and diving. The house is nestled on the South end of the Island, within walking distance to Tahiti Beach, and makes for a fun short drive by golf cart to Hopetown for evening dining and dancing. The house is also complemented by 6 2-bedroom, 2 bath villas that share their own swimming pool, which I used as the wedding destination for my daughter who was married on the Island. I highly recommend Crystal Waters for your next vacation."

  • What a special and beautiful property

    "I just spent a week at Mermaid's Ridge and it was just beyond fabulous. The house is so clean, and easily accessible from the north end dock. It's a nice 20-25 minute walk to town. With the scenery though it doesn't seem like long at all. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need (my family has been to Hopetown multiple times so we often bring lots of food and cook quite a bit). In addition, the bathrooms were clean and the bedrooms were spacious. There are not too many extra beach towels so I would recommend bringing a few extras if you have a large party. The wifi is a nice bonus, but honestly, you forget that email even exists, a wonderful reprieve. In addition, the VHF radio is great to listen to the Cruiser's Net every morning on channel 68 at 8:15AM to get updates about the weather and events happening in the area. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! Thanks for a wonderful trip!"

  • Graet cottage and great location

    "We had a wonderful week at Blue Moon Cottage. The cottage is very well maintained and decorated with a lot of interesting touches. Judy the caretaker was at the dock waiting for us along with Vikki from Hope Town Carts with our golf cart. Judy showed us around the cottage and left us to enjoy the day. Tahiti Beach is a great spot, easy to reach by golf cart. The ocean beach is gorgeous as well. The restaurant choices are many and all that we tried were excellent. Our 2 favorites were Abaco Inn and Firefly. We fished with Cap Plug and had a gorgeous day and caught a ton of fish. He really knows his business. Blue Moon Cottage has everything you need for cooking in and the gas grill was brand new. Internet worked perfectly. Shea was a pleasure to work with. She really has a special place there on Elbow."

Hopetown Travel Tips

Hopetown Vacation Rentals for Families and Friends

Hopetown, a little known district located in the Bahamas, is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination for couples and families alike when planning a warm weather getaway. Hopetown vacation rentals come in all shapes and sizes, satisfying your need for space in order to house as many people as possible in your vacation party. Hopetown is located on the island of Abaco in the Bahamas, with golf carts being the main mode of transportation for residents and tourists alike. Supplies, such a food, drinks, and toiletries, are brought in each week via a barge.

Small Town Feel on a Gorgeous Island

Many people who book vacations love to book them for small towns to get that small town feel. You can definitely get that small town feel when staying in Hopetown because the permanent population is just around 300 people. Thousands of people visit the island each year for vacations and honeymoons, increasing the population at times by 300 percent.

So Much to Do on Such a Small Island

There is so much to do on thesmall island of Hopetown. The main attraction of Hopetown, near all of the popular Hopetown resorts, is the Elbow Cay-Hopetown Lighthouse. It is one of only three manual lighthouses still in operation in the entire world. The lamp in the lighthouse runs on kerosene oil to warn incoming ships of the rocks and the harbor. Aside from the lighthouse, tourists can swim, sunbathe, fish, boat, sail, kayak, whale watch and much more while visiting Abaco villas in the Bahamas. Make sure you book your trip to Hopetown as soon as possible to reserve the most luxurious villas, condos, or homes available for rent for you and your family during your stay on the island.
